For years, I’ve been raving on and on about BB Creams and how awesome they are for beauty novices and aficionados alike. They offer an all-in-one solution to girls who either don’t know how or don’t have lots of time to spare applying layers of makeup.
I rave on and on about my Smashbox because I love it so but this time around I wanted to give Iman Cosmetics a try and my first choice from the line was the BB Cream. For starters, I won’t claim that I’m raving in love with it but it does a pretty good job of evening my skintone. And sometimes, that’s all a girl wants is to look even and pretty without looking like she’s wearing heavy makeup.
Offering sheer-coverage, this particular BB Cream has a natural, skin-like finish and is slightly powdery and matte to the touch. If you have acne scarring or other flaws you’d like to conceal, this wouldn’t be your ideal product. As you can see in the photos, my hyper-pigmentation from past blemishes is still visible.
I purchased the BB Cream in Sand Medium and it’s pretty much a dead on match to my skintone and I think this is an excellent brand for women of color.
