BB Creams. Are They Worth The Hype?

It looks like everyone is talking about BB creams  these days. Some say they changed their lives, some that these are too thick and not worth the attention.

It seems like I am the only person on Earth who still never tried any BB Cream (hopefully) yet.

But what about you? Have you tried any? Have you found the one you like? Do you think it’s all worth the hype?

Unfortunately, I don’t know the original source of this picture

Since I haven’t tried these, I don’t see the point of posting the official information as you can find it on the websites of a lot of brand’s. But I wanted to share this wonderful post by the Muse where she writes about  the difference between a BB Cream and a Tinted Moisturizer.

You can also find reviews of different BB Creams over at Cosmetic Candy and My Women Stuff.

Wearing Today: YSL Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

Here is a quick update on what I am wearing on my face today. Most of the products are  from the YSL summer 2011 makeup collection which I really like. I have to say that I’ve been impressed with the latest YSL collections (and I know that I am not alone), Lloyd Simmonds did a great job!

The duo eye shadow in 35 Caramel Tan, Creme de Blush in N° 4 Audacious Orange and Volupte Sheer Candy in  2 Dewy Papaya. I have to say that  I really like everything especially the blush. Will post detailed reviews and swatches later so stay tuned.
