Bb cream/tinted moisturiser?

(16 Posts)
MarkleAndSpencer Sun 11-Feb-18 20:04:37

I never get near decent shops at the moment and have just come to the end of my Bobbi Brown BB cream. I've been pretty happy with it but fancy a change - now feeling overwhelmed by so many options!

My skin's not awful but maybe a bit dull so I want something light and easy I can slap on in about 25 seconds in the morning. Ideally which makes me look like I've had more sleep!

Any suggestions?

Sorry - meant to say something I can buy online ideally!

I like the boots no7 bb cream, my entire makeup routine some days is that, benetint on cheeks and lips, bit of mascara, done.

Erborian bb cream is good.

I use rimmel instaflawless. It's a tinted primer, cheap but it evens my skin and is really light and moisturising.

Hope people don't mind me asking. I don't like wearing make up regularly, as I don't like the feel of having 'something' on my skin. Does BB cream or primer still feel like this? My skintone is quite uneven now, with red veins around my nose, so would like to wear something to even it out.

Thanks for the suggestions, will look them all up!

Remote I don't like that heavy feeling either and have quite liked the Bobbi Brown b2b cream (or tinted moisturiser - I can't remember what it's called!) Also wondering if I need to try primer. It's confusing! Can you try going to a counter somewhere and trying some things out?

ofthread I'm looking at eborian but flummoxed by the shades! I'm pretty English Rose in terms of colouring - fair skin and brown hair but not milk bottle pale. Is that Clair/Light?!

I use this: Origins and find it gives a lught coverage, it feels like there is nothing there but there obviously is when I clean my face at the end of the day. Its not cheap though.

The Liz Earle one is great. Makes even my skin look glowing. I need a bit of extra concealer under eyes and on blemishes.

I love the origins vitazing but it's very light..... the garnier BB cream is also amazing and around £9. I also swapped touche eclait for the garner roll on under eye concealer !

Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. I get compliments on my skin constantly when I wear it.

Nars tinted moisturiser is good, nice and light on the skin and gives a nice glow. I also love the Chantecaille Just Skin tinted moisturiser but it’s £££. It is amazing though, really natural finish but somehow blurs all the imperfections away.

I use a Rimmel BB cream - reaĺly good for the price.

Markle, I have the nude, all I can say is it is pretty fair. The 'clair' is lighter and the 'dore' is darker. It is meant to adjust slightly to your skin. Not a great shade range, it is created for Korean skin tones only I think.

The Olay tinted moisturiser is very good imo.
