Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream isn’t a new product on the market, but what is new is that they’ve added four new shades so it now caters for even more skin tones.
Shades available are:
So that’s good news! What isn’t good news is that I haven’t been getting on too well with this product 🙁 In the official images the models look absolutely stunning with flawless glowing skin and I want that too, I really want that, alas, I didn’t get that!
So unlike some BB Creams, this is more of a true BB rather than some of those on the market that are really just tinted moisturisers. This BB can be used either as base for your foundation or alone as a lightweight foundation. It promises to cover imperfections and even skin tone, draw moisture to the skin and help oil control, brighten dull skin instantly and over time, reduce the look of wrinkles and shield the skin with it’s SPF 35 and anti-oxidants.
The colour I’ve been using, Light, is perfect for me and what I do really like about this is the level of coverage, it manages to look as though it’s not there whilst doing exactly as it promises and evening out skin tone and covering small imperfections (you’ll still need a concealer on pesky spots)…but alas, that’s where my love of this BB ends and I so wanted to love it. You all know I’m a big Bobbi Brown fan and I have quite high expectations but alas this didn’t suit my skin type at all. It settled in to every dry flake, (I didn’t know I had) every pore, and every line. It just didn’t work for me at all. If you really zoom into the second pic below, you can see how it’s settled into all the lines on the back of my hand, although it’s not really noticeable unless you’re up close.
I think this would suit anyone who doesn’t have stupid skin like mine. On the plus side it’s totally reminded me how much I DO love the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick. My love for this grows daily, easy to tweak your coverage where you need it, convenient to apply and I love the finish.
Sorry Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35, it’s not you, it’s me.
