So as promised, here is my 1st review of various BB Creams.
In December of 2014 I went on a trip to Las Vegas. On the return flight I was handed the Skymall brochure. I ended up purchasing a cosmetics kit by NYX. This was my first experience with the product line. I admit, it was instant love. Since then I have been a die hard fan of NYX. So when I decided to give BB creams another shot, NYX was an obvious choice.
Well, I’m sad to say that I can’t give it a 5 star rating. Things I like… it is lightweight, hasn’t caused breakouts, doesn’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles, smells nice, good thickness and texture, fair price, one tube lasts a long time, readily available, applies easily and has a nice finish. My favorite thing about it… the colour selection. Once again NYX has been the only product line that I have found that matches my very fair complexion.
Drawbacks… it gets kinda greasy, it has very little hide; so next to no coverage, and it isn’t very long lasting (4-6 hours tops).
Bottom line, I won’t buy it again and won’t recommend it to anyone with blotchy, freckled, or otherwise imperfect complexion. I will continue to try different BB creams until I find “the one”. All that said, I give this BB cream a 3 out of 5.
