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.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation. Inspired by BB Creams

I’ve heard the new Illamasqua foundation several months ago and I am happy to have all the details finally.

The most interesting thing about it is that it is inspired by ” the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams, Skin Base Foundation is a brand new, refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. The ultimate ‘skin realism’ foundation.”

This gorgeous look is created by National Make-up Artist Clare Lille  and the products that were used, besides the new foundation, are: Cream Pigment in ‘Dab’, Powder Blusher in ‘Hussy’, Precision Ink in ‘Glister’, Eye Brow Cake in ‘Peak’, Sheer Lipgloss in ‘Tantrum’

Manicure is created  by Marian Newman, she used  Nail Varnishes in ‘Scorn’ [matt black] and  in Jo’Mina [lilac].

And I really love what is written about this new foundation, sounds like an amazing product, just see for yourself:
