Maybe fail is a little harsh, but the one an only BB cream that i have has failed me or rather have i failed it?
I was heaps excited to get my hands on a BB cream and decided on getting one from the Missha store in Sydney. I knew in general BB creams tend to run a little light and don't really cater for us tanner/darker skinned gals so i didnt want to make a purchase online. I thought, I would just go in and see what they have
we all know that never works. The SA recommended the darkest colour no23 Natural Beige obviously, and she put a teeny tiny pea size amount on my face and worked it in. Of course in the store and due to excitement being surrounded by makeup I gave in and thought, I can work with it but I couldn't :(
Don't get me wrong, it performs well i.e stays put the whole day, lovely finish, etc but the colour is the problem. It's too light for me bordering on ashy. So i thought, because its not really a heavy duty foundation all I had to do was blend it in...rite, but boy I had to do a heap of blending in to make it work! That ended up taking the most time in my makeup routine.
I know online they have recently started selling some darker shades and hopefully they will get them in store sometime soon. I've not given up just yet on BB creams, I willl find the prefect one, hopefully:)
Have you tried BB creams? Any recommendations?
