BB Cream Clarification

BB Cream Clarification 

BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, blemish balm (apparently because of a trademark in Korea on the word "blemish"), and in Western markets, beauty balm. It is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, although larger beauty brands are increasingly introducing BB creams to Western markets.
BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.


I've come to take a liking to BB Creams.  I believe that they are a quick and easy way to create an "on the go" look.  Sometimes in life we just don't have enough time to put on every piece of makeup in our bag so BB Creams allow you to combine products without feeling like you've cheated your look.  It takes less than 3 minutes to apply and seems to last all day.  The downfall with BB Creams is that they only come in a limited amount of shades.  My suggestions would be to get samples from your favorite beauty counter so you're not playing the purchase and return game.  Who has that kind of time and money?

BB Cream: Maybelline {Medium Deep & Deep}
