BB Cream Review Huda Beauty Full

Hiii My Loves!!! So I have been pretty obsessed with BB Creams, as you may know and I promised you all a FULL review on some of my favorite or the most talked about BB Creams! I took notes for each one, so you can see exactly how they felt and how they blend on to skin! If you haven’t tried one yet, hopefully this will give you a great picture about which one to buy!

Remember BB Creams, brighten skin, fight wrinkles, have SPF, even skin tone, and protect against free radicals while giving you a little color! It’s like beautifying makeup, which is why it rocks!

 

MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm SPF 35

BB MAC Tube

Dries Well but then it left streaks and wasn’t blend able. A little thick, slightly dewy, but in a nice way, not greasy, not oily, Natural skin finish, slightly too pink, which appeared gray on my skin

 

Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 25

IMG_0093

BB Clarins

Felt thick when you started to blend it, but blended the most beautifully! Dried almost completely matte, but seems to have a little radiant shimmer in it (VERY fine, looks natural), not greasy, every so slightly sticky, but didn’t feel bad! Coverage light, but not sheer, actually a really nice BB Cream

 

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30

BB Clinique

Consistency too thin and didn’t blend well, coverage not bad, but really greasy and sticky, also didn’t really dry, so it kept moving, which I did not like Although the color tone was nice. So far the WORST of the bunch!

 

DiorSkin Nude Glow Skin Perfecting BB Creme SPF 10

IMG_0102

BB Dior Skin Nude

Blended beautifully, covered well, but still was light. No stickiness, no greasiness, but also a slight sheen to it. Definitely a favorite for combination skin types. Really felt like a different class than the other BB Creams

 

Dior Hydra Life Enhancing Moisturizer BB Creme SPF 30

BB DiorHydra Life

Quite nice consistency, not too thick, not too thin (more on the thin side), Coverage nice, but HUGE downer, they only offer in one color, dried nicely, no stickiness, slight greasiness, coverage good

 

Estee Lauder Day Wear Anti-Oxidant BB Creme SPF 35

BB Estee LAuder

Quite thick, but blended very well, zero stickiness, but a little greasy, Coverage quite nice and looked very natural and not heavy, not bad, actually pretty nice maybe for dry skin. Also the color tone was quite nice
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15

 

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15

BB Garnier

Soooo thick, blends nicely, with decent coverage. The greasiest of the bunch so far, but not so sticky! Definitely not a matte finish, I feel that skin would be too shiny if using this.

 

Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream SPF 50

IMG_0088

BB Kiehl's

A little too water coming out of container, but not so easy to blend, it was slightly sticky when blended. Although it did dry beautifully and was very natural finish. not greasy, but had a little stickiness to it, not bad, more for dry skin. I like that it has Vitamin C, so it will correct dark spots and even skin tone

 

MAC Prep + Prime Compact BB Cream

IMG_0108

BB MAC Compact

Really terrible, soooo thick, felt like paste on skin. coverage was very heavy, didn’t seem like a BB Cream, Blended well, but pretty greasy. Felt like it didn’t dry, but was very thick, so it may move throughout the day

 

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

BB Maybelline

 

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35

IMG_0096

BB Smashbox

Really nice consistency, not too thick, not too thin, Blended beautifully and coverage was quite natural but still good. A little too greasy, but not sticky, similar to Estee Lauder, but nicer consistency

 

Too Faced Multi Benefit Skin Care BB Cream SPF 20

IMG_0097

BB Too Faced

Kind of thick, but bladed beautifully! Felt more like a foundation than a BB Cream, a little orange, slightly sticky, slightly greasy, although does look natural Covereage not bad, but not a front runner

 

Urban Decay Naked Skin DNA Repair BB Cream SPF 20

IMG_0094

BB Urban Decay

So far, LEAST favorite, blended into nothing! Felt like the coverage was soooo light that it made me wonder why I even bothered with a BB Cream, it also kind of felt weird when it blended, thick at first, then it blended into basically nothing! Not a fan! No Greasiness, barely any stickiness

I think I like Lancome the best so far. Did you review that one? what do you think?

Thank you for the review :) I have combination skin and BB creams like the Smashbox one will make my skin flaky. At the same time the Dr Jart Premium will be too shiny… Maybe I will try the Dior one. Still looking for the perfect BB cream!
