L’Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator Review
Last week, I wrote about getting to try the new L'Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator
. Its been about a week now and I've used it almost everyday as my main foundation, over my serum/moisturizer and under some powder.
Ok, let me back up. The first thing I heard from my friends when they ask me about makeup is often "what is this BB Cream stuff I keep seeing?" Well, its basically the next generation of tinted moisturizer. I find BB Creams to be a bit thicker in consistency then other tinted moisturizers. They provide a bit more coverage than your average tinted moisturizer but less than a true foundation. They always have sunscreen in them and usually other properties that are good for your skin.
The L'Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream
is meant to bridge the gap between skincare and makeup. It is somewhere in between, a little from column A and a little from column B. It has sunscreen and provides added moisture while also providing a bit of color, to even out skin tone. I love the way it smells, a light perfume scent, and the texture is like a thick mousse. It gives me the right amount of coverage and tons of moisture.
L'Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream
is also a very good bargin at $16.99 for 2.5 oz of moisture, protection and coverage!
BB Cream Lovely!
