Beauty & Style
BB creams have been getting rave reviews in the beauty world for the past couple of years and finally Pakistan has caught up with the trend. With plenty of affordable drugstore brands launching BB creams in Pakistan, women have been falling in love with the miracle skin perfector.
BB creams first flourished in Asia as Blemish Balms and Beauty Balms. With its debut in the European market in 2011, you’ll find every cosmetic brand marketing their own version of a BB cream. Generally these beauty balms offer a great deal of moistuization, SPF protection and light coverage. The all-in-one bb cream easily allows you to look great without the effort.
The light coverage of BB creams offer a natural dewy finish while containing SPF and other skin care benefits. BB creams all come in different formulations, Garnier is one worth trying out! The Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector allows you to hide dry patches and discoloration. If you suffer from a dull complexion, this is the product to add to your wish list! The multi-benefit BB cream combines intense hydration with tinted minerals and vitamin C allowing you to perfect your skin tone.
Majority of BB creams are thick in consistency and leaves you with a dewy finish, the Garneir BB Cream comes in an Oil/Combination skin type (skinny tube) formula that gives you semi-matt finish without it looking cakey or dry on your skin. The thin consistency texture is easy to apply, giving you light natural coverage with a semi matte finish. The Normal skin type (fat tube) has a thicker formula, giving you a heavier coverage with a dewy finish. It sets into the skin without it feeling tacky, great for those winter months for dry skin.
If you’re looking for something with light to medium coverage, BB creams are ideal for you! The coverage is very light so it will not hide any imperfections so a concealer is necessary. If you want to add more coverage to your skin, finish off with a setting powder to add an extra layer. The shade selection is limited to light and medium. If you have a dark tanned complexion, it will not match your skin and give you a grey cast.
How does it wear?
The wear time for the Oil/Combination formula works really well for oil-prone skin. It keeps oil at bay for about 4 hours until heavy oil starts producing and your t-zone starts to get shiny. It has a very natural coverage, wearing this on its own gives a foolproof application. Unlike other BB creams, this one isn’t greasy on the skin.
BB creams are the easiest product to work with since you need just a small amount to apply all over your skin…you can skip out on applying this with a brush! Simply take a small amount on your fingers and gentle blend into the skin.
