Was talking about the BB creams..

I wanted to ask you ladies about them...are they good? do they cover well?

What is the best one to try?

Thanks..

I haven't used the BB creams yet but am interested. Her skin looked absolutely flawless, Wonder what products she uses.

And I suppose it will be yellow like the rest of her stuff. I wish she would quit ignoring us pink people.

Her BB cream is already for sale at Nordstrom.

Yep. I was online with the Nordstrom beauty consultant and she recommended it for me (for oily skin) and for staying power.

I wonder about the coverage. Did she happen to mention it on the show this morning?

The Dior and the Clinique BB's both work very well for my fair pink-toned skin! Although the Dior is better I think. You need very little of it too.

I had heard the Dior ran dark. You must not find that to be for you? I had heard it leans Light-Medium and darker.

I agree about the Clinique. I like that one.

I was a little disappointed. She really didn't talk about hers specifically. The segment was on BB creams in general although I am sure the models were using hers.

I use Dior BB. It's the bomb. VERY $$$ but you use sooooo little it will last for a long time.

P.S. I do not have pink undertones.

I've only used Missha, but I love it!!

I have thrown out all my foundations and tinted moisturizers. BB cream is all I will use now (I do use a moisturizer under it). Some have more coverage than others....I love love love Missha (I mix #23 and #27 for medium coverage) and Clinique is good too (shade 2 for medium coverage). I have not found the drug store brands to be quite as good as those... I have tried 3. I will try Bobbie Brown's and see if it can match the coverage that Missha gives. It would be nice to be able to go to the dept. store and buy it when I run out instead of having to go to Amazon to order then wait for it. I am 65 and my skin looks great with a BB cream on it...not matte not dewey...something inbetween. I use IT Bye Bye Undereye on the days I think I need a little coverage...it is great too. We all know that "less is more" now and BB ccreams make your skin look so good...like skin but better (covers anything you want to cover....you can layer it for more coverage). It does last....about 8rs..before needing a touch up here and there.. Try them! You'll love them once you find the right one for you {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Amen again. I can understand a little yellow, but her foundations make me look like I'm in liver failure.

For me i think the one i use and love which is Dr Jart covers well. Thats all i use know and it has a high spf.

I dont even wear makeup(foundation) anymore unless it was a special occasion where i needed more coverage.

That couldn't be further from the truth. Most BB creams are glorified tinted moisturizers. They absolutely do not cover "anything"!!

Lifeisgooddosomething....I am sorry you feel that everything I said "couldn't be further from the truth". WOW. If you read my post you will see that I say "I" throughout...not "you". I do say that BB creams cover anything you want to cover, and I will bow to your criticism. Maybe you have something it would not cover. Again, if you read my post, you would see that I say that I use IT Bye Bye Undereye when I need a little more coverage. If you listened to BB on the Today Show you would have heard her specifically say that a BB cream is NOT a TM (she has no reason to say that for people to buy her BB cream...she sells both) and I believe anyone who makes one would say the same. I have looked at the ingredients in my Laura Mercier TM and my BB creams and the ingredients are not identical. Are they a full coverage foundation...NO. But I don't think anyone thinks they are.
