BB creams passed me by completely, now we're onto CC Creams!
Anyone tried one? Quite fancy something that gives a bit of coverage but without me having to apply my normal foundation, for those days when I'm planning to be at home but don't want to scare small children should I need to venture outside.
Don't know about cc cream but I've got the new Dior nude b&b cream which is more foundationy than their other one . It's amazing. I find foundation to heavy but this just gives light coverage and makes my skin dewy but not shiny x
I tried a free sample of the L'Oreal in Elle magazine last week. It was the apricot coloured one, which is for tired skin. I was really very impressed by it and thought it would be great to use on a weekend rather than my Bobbi Brown Foundation. I did go to their website and tried to get a sample of the green (anti redness), but for some reason every time I try to submit, it won't send the request.
To cut a long story short I took the plunge yesterday and bought a tube of the sample I tried. It certainly does seem to do what it promises!
I've also totally by passed the bb creams and just yesterday bought the Chanel cc cream, so far so good.....just a little confused now what I actually need to put on my face every morning....what with serum, moisturiser, cc cream, foundation etc....
this is what i don't get ...if the green one covers up red..but goes on to change to a foundation hue rather than green..then there's no actual green to counteract the red....gah have i wasted my 9.99?
