Here’s my collection in ABC order so as not to play favorites yet:
Boscia BB Cream (not pictured)
Embryolisse Secret de Maquilleurs BB Cream
Holika & Holika Peach Girl BB Cream
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream
As far as favorites go, I have to pick 3Lab since it’s just amazing. They are known for their amazing skincare so when you put that together with SPF40/PA+++ and beautiful coverage you have a winner.
The problem is that most people won’t pay $95 for a foundation or a BB Cream even if it does do everything. I will pay that so the price doesn’t bother me. But I wanted to also pick a less expensive BB cream as a choice (plus I’m indecisive). That one was a very hard choice since most of these perform the same.
After retesting all of these the second favorite is Skin 79 Super+ Beblesh Balm. (Missha M was sosoclose to winning!)
This starts out gray on me and has a slight fragrance but within minutes it melds with my skin giving me great light coverage that doesn’t melt away with the first sign of heat. At $14.69 with free shipping via Amazon it is a bargain. The SPF factor isn’t as good as the 3Lab (it’s SPF25/PA++) but the coverage is almost as good.
If you have the money and want perfection then try 3Lab, if you want to try a BB Cream and don’t know where to start then try the SKIN 79 or Missha M.
Now tell me – what have I skipped that needs to get added to my collection? Curious minds want to know. — Marcia
