We Love Fridays: BB Cream Round Up
We first spoke about BB creams last summer, and since then these all-in-one wonders have gone from cult fave to a must-have in any chick's makeup bag. BB creams originated in Asia and have been popular there for a while, but they've only recently come to North America.
We did a bit of BB beauty research and we've got to say, we're liking this trend! We love that BB creams are a lighter alternative to a foundation. They're tone correcting, brightening and give nice, even coverage on your face. In fact, for a day when you'll be out and about and don't want anything weighing you down, may we suggest skipping the foundation and concealer routine and going for a natural, bright, BB cream look?
1. Estee Lauder DayWear BB Cream (US$38.00)
2. Clinique Age Defense BB Cream (C$37.00)
3. The Face Shop Face It Shimmering BB Cream (US$13.50)
4. Skin79 Super+ BB Cream Triple Function (US$8.99)
5. Marcelle BB Cream (C$22.95)
One of the best features of BB creams is that most contain either an SPF, serum or are specially formulated for a specific skin type. Got combination, dry, acne prone or mature skin? They've got you covered!

2. Vichy NeoVadiol Lumiere BB Cream (C$44.00)

4. Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm (C$49.00)
5. Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream (US$19.79)
6. SkinFood Red Bean BB Cream (US$14.99)

I have yet to try a BB cream but they sure sound intriguing. I think I need to jump on this bandwagon! Thanks everyone for your comments- it really helps when there are so many choices and you know nothing about the products. :o)
@cole Try the Garnier website or the facebook page, the sample period might be over now but you'll probably be able to snag a coupon anyways
Where did everyone get the garnier sample?
I have used most of the asian ones, and I am not loving them. I am fair, (nc20) and these BB creams wash me out. While they do give me that porcelain skin appearance, it's too much. I look like a lifeless doll sometimes. On top of it they feel cakes and I've gotten breakouts more than once. The Marcelle one is still my favourite. Light, adjusts well to my skin tone, and gives me medium coverage. Yes, its more like a titedt moisturizer, but it works well and looks good on me.
I tried out the garnier & marcelle ones. But, I'll have to say, I'm going to be sticking with my Missha perfect cover.
I've tried the Missha Perfect BB and like how it worked but I think the colour is a bit off and not natural. I have heard great things abot the Smashbox Camera Ready BB and it"s on my wishlist!
I've only ever tried Missha and a sample from Garnier. I have heard so many good things about Missha, but I found the coverage from my Garnier sample to be a little better. I do like the SPF 42 from the Missha though.
I've tried both Garnier's BB cream and Missha's BB cream and the Garnier's is the winner for sure!
