urban

 

Sorry for the long break! It’s been a little crazy at school, but I haven’t been forgetting about new articles and keeping an eye on Asian cosmetic trends and new products. More updates are coming after this!

Looks like the BB Trend in the West isn’t going to die time anytime soon. My prediction is that we will be seeing much much more products coming out especially from the bigger companies. This list is going to be long so enjoy! I will be just highlighting the ‘special’ features in the BB Cream and the ingredient list if it’s available.

What it is:
A five-in-one beauty balm that minimizes pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness instantly and gives you significantly firmer, more-lifted skin in eight weeks.

What it does:
Blur flaws in seconds and get serious antiaging benefits in just eight weeks. This lightweight, velvety, oil-free miracle works instantly and over the long term. Naked Skin Beauty Balm is invisible on your skin (zero rub-off): the universal shade glides on and dries down to a translucent, flawless finish that works on most skintones. While many beauty balms are tinted to provide coverage, Naked Skin diffuses light with high-tech pigments to give you amazing, natural, naked-looking skin that keeps getting better every week. Unlike a lot of beauty balms, Naked Skin delivers measurable antiaging benefits—and the claims to prove it.

What else you need to know:
The multitasking Naked Skin is like an instant retoucher in a tube. Optical blurring pigments instantly even out skintone and minimize pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness. SPF 20 shields skin from sun damage and Pepha®-Protect helps inhibit DNA damage. Vitasource™ and Glyage® firm skin, improve elasticity, and provide measurable antiaging benefits, while the extremely blendable formula creates a smooth finish, so makeup goes on beautifully and stays put. Moisturizing but never greasy, it hydrates skin instantly and improves hydration over time.

It really is unique as a BB Cream and in the West, but here in the East, we’ve seen this formula late 2012 with the release of Laneige’s upgraded Sleeping Pack, as well as a few other products. This is the first time that this memory shape gel is incorporated in a BB Cream.

The Water Fuse Smart Gel BB retakes shape once applied to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and enlarged pores, while also providing flawless coverage. Infused with powerful antiaging and anti-inflammatory ingredients, it brightens the complexion, corrects skintone, and naturally covers blemishes.

Comes in a balm form like the MAC Prep Prime BB.

 

Bourjois’ BB cream compact foundation is your make-up and skin care ‘dream cream’ – a compact foundation with eight actions in one.

  1. I tried Dior…. love it so far, but I still take Missha Cho Bo Yang BB Cream anytime of the day

  2. Wow !! Very great review !! I want to try the Dr Jart + BB cream : so unique !!By the way : I love your blog ! xo xo

  3. I still prefer Korean BB creams.
    Btw, i wish you would post the allure beauty awards and other beauty awards for 2012 like you did the previous year

  4. I have tried a couple of Korean BB creams, but so far they’ve been too light for my skintone. I was recommended Smashbox Camera Ready BB cream at Sephora because it claims to control oil, but I hesitated because of the price.
