The One and Only BB Cream


I think everyone is sufficiently fed up with the whole BB/CC/DD/EE/... craze right now, but I have to say I was never really a part of that craze. When they first came out I was intrigued, tried one by Garnier and didn't like it because it turned me into a greaseball, and then I came across this matte version and I haven't looked back.
The Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector for combination to oily skin has a matte finish, almost a liquid to powder formulation, with a great coverage that actually rivals some foundations I've tried. It's the base I reach for when I want something no fuss that I can just slap on and be done with it. It blends really nicely both with fingers and a brush and I am just in love.
Admittedly, this does separate a little bit in my super oily areas, so on my nose and forehead, during the day, but can easily be re-blended with fingers. I do also find that the occasional powder touch up during the day pretty much prevents it. It may not be fool proof, but it's the best BB cream for oily skin that I have tried!
The light shade is unfortunately still quite dark, I can just about wear it in the winter but if you're very pale (I'm a MAC NC20 normally) then this may not be for you. Thankfully it works for me and I also have the medium to dark shade, which is my go-to in the summer because it matches me perfectly when I have a tan!

What is your favourite BB cream?
