BB Foundation

Favourite non-high brand foundation by far!

I've been using this foundation for the past two months and I am so pleased with it. It lasts well for the day with a powder applied on top, creates an even look and a little of the product goes a long way. In my opinion, the only negative with this product is that although it manages to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day, it can begin to make my skin oily after about 5 hours. However, this problem is easily fixed by blotting my face and then applying a little more powder. In the UK it is only £4 which is extremely good value, especially for a foundation that works so well.

Good for the price

This BB cream is really good, considering the price is only a mere £4. Unlike a few I tried, it has a thick and gloopy consistency however blends into the skin naturally, with a dewy finish. For me, the lightest shade matches up perfectly to my skin tone and I'm a MAC NC15. My only issue is that it doesn't provide the ultimate coverage- so any additional redness I need to cover with my concealer. Also to take away any excess 'dew', I have to blot my face with a little bit of powder. Apart from that I recommend it. Probably to those with normal to dry skin types as oily types may find it difficult to work with due to its moisturising properties.

Really nice and easy to use

I really like this BB cream. I am a massive fan of MUA products and would rate them very high. The one thing I really love about this BB cream is the smell. It has a scent of a perfume but is not overpowering. I find that it's rather thick and takes a bit of rubbing in and blending. I noticed on the first use how good my skin looked. I have dry skin with a few blemishes, but it gave me pretty good coverage and a fresh dewy look. For only £4, how can you go wrong? I would recommend this to anyone thinking of purchasing a BB cream.

Creamy but a bit too thick:(

I like the shade of this and the creaminess, but it was a bit too thick for me and didn't blend well. But for a cheap foundation/BB cream its okay quality!

I personally love the product, i have combination skin and find it hard to find something that doesn't look too dry or too oily on my skin. This is a perfect BB cream, and i have it in the lightest shade. At £4, it is amazing value, although i would pay up to £10 if this product just had more in it. I don't often buy my makeup, so i would love it to last a little longer. As a BB cream, it's a lot thinner than my previous foundation (Illamasqua rich liquid & Nivea Moisturizer), i find that i need to apple a little concealer to breakouts to completely hide them. Overall, i love the dewy finish it leaves to my skin, as i've never had that before. Only problem is the amount in the bottle.
