New Drugstore BB Creams in the US! + UpdatesWednesday, June 20, 2012
Hi everyone! Just a quick update, I'm in New York! I'm going to be in New York for a while since I'm here for a fashion summer program at one of the best fashion colleges in the world! So I'm going to be pretty busy and won't be able to blog as much...
Just kidding! I do have some blog posts I've prewritten so I'll still be updating whenever I can!
But there's something I wanted to tell you guys about. There are more BB creams coming out in drugstores in the US!
First, Maybelline came out with their Dream Fresh BB cream and there are more shades in this BB cream than the Garnier BB cream. And there's shades for deep skin tones! If I ever have time to stop by the drugstores in NY, then I'm going to definitely pick this up!
Also, L'oreal finally released their Magic Skin Beautifier BB cream (that's a hell of a name). Something different about this is that it comes out white and then "blends" into your skin colour. My friend who's with me right now has this and she says she doesn't really like it. I tested it out and I have no idea what to say about this.
It doesn't have enough coverage to be considered a BB cream. Seriously America, BB creams are NOT tinted moisturizers! And this isn't really that moisturizing. And it only has SPF 12 which is like no sun protection. You need to wear at least SPF 30 if you want sun protection. I'm not saying this is bad since I only tested it out once but I think there are better BB creams in the market.
So yeah, I've practically given up on most of the drugstore BB creams here in America since they aren't really BB creams in my opinion but hopefully Maybelline can change my mind that there is hope in drugstore BB creams.
Have you tried any of these BB creams? Are you going to? What are your thoughts?
Anyways, I'll see you guys later! And if you want to see my pictures in New York, follow me on Instagram! @thelilyhong
