|Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm ready to test|
|Swatch on hand proves camouflage capabilities|
If you are still fuzzy as to what makes BB creams so special, here is what Maybelline's Dream Fresh Beauty Balm is purposed to do:
- Blur Imperfections
- Enhances ( not sure what, skin?)
-Adjusts to skin-tone ( in the past I've had no such luck, just ask Almay and Dr. Perricone- major fails)
- SPF 30
- 0% Oils and other heavy ingredients
These types of all-in one creams are HUGE in Asia as women want skincare and color cosmetics to be seamless. Here in the US, its about: Toner, Primer, Concealer, Foundation, Powder, Mist... etc. A lot of these steps I have omitted from my routine as I'm not trying to look early 90's matte-tastic.
This week I ventured to a Duane Reade in Midtown that had a half display ( maybe stegasaurus'?) of product but they did have my shade! Later, when I got home, I tested the shade on my hand and I was impressed! I tried the full product on today and I have to say that it has delivered so far on 5-6 of the 8 promises which is 62-75% but I would give this product an A. Fantastic job on the shade range and pigmentation! There is 1.15% of titanium dioxide for the purposes of sunscreen. Overall, Fantastic!
