I have tested tons of BB Creams, okay maybe not tons but I have tested enough. During one of my test I had ten different BB Creams. One thing they have in common is most of them are not enough coverage for me. I'm not ready to let a bb cream take the place of my foundation unless it is a beach day or a day where I can be "without" makeup. On those days I wear my bb cream, blush, and powder.
L'Oreal Age Perfect is my fav so far. It sells for around $15.00 and you can get it at a drug store near you. One of my least favorites was L'Oreal Magic but I gave it my mother in-law and she loved it.
So I know they say if it's not broke don't fix it but I've been seeing a lot of hype about primers and I use a primer for my eye shadow so I had to try one for my face. I tried the NYC New York Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer it runs for around $5.00 and you can also pick it up at most of your favorite stores. It goes on nicely and isn't heavy on your skin. There is no pealing or flaking and my foundation stayed on a little longer than without it. It wasn't a bad product but I used it for a couple of days and went back to my bb cream.
If you have never tried a bb cream try one you may fall in love. I never thought I would find one so don't stop until you find one that works with your skin.
