i’m rounding out six years of testing beauty products for the glossarie. these days, i find myself less and less impressed by the ordinary. new lip gloss formula? meh. another mascara that promises crazy length and volume? i’ll believe it when i see it.
i’m trying to only focus on sharing the truly unique and innovative with you, so it may be surprising to some that the hero of this post is a bb cream. (i mean, aren’t we on to ee creams by now?) a bb cream may not be that big of a deal, but a $6 bb cream that outshines all of this season’s fancy foundation launches? now, that’s something to write about.
let me preface this post by saying that i probably would have never plucked a $6 bb cream off of the drugstore shelves. the wonderful people at e.l.f. recently sent me a plethora of product last week and far be it from me to deny you beautiful people the chance to save some serious cash on your daily face – so i gave it a whirl.
the thing that i truly love about this product is that it primes and perfects in one easy step. i have come to the place in my life where i can’t survive without a primer. shine starts to break through mid-day and the smoothing effects of a primer are a must for my 33-year-old skin.
e.l.f. has created a simple multitasker that presents a seamless, glowing, yet shine-free finish, and it lasts all day. this stuff is easy to blend and serves as the perfect base for everyday makeup. i’ve been wearing the fair shade which provides more coverage than just your average natural tint. you get pigment along with anti-aging ingredients to treat your skin to a dose of nourishing moisture, plus spf 20.
that’s a lot of bang for your very little buck, no?
