After a year or so of thinking about it, I finally tried some real, non-Western BB Cream to replace my liquid foundation(s). I waited for so long because anything with silicone in it tends to break me out, and most BB Creams have tons in em.
it's been great!!! I used Skin79 Pink Label (because I can buy it off amazon), and I'm just shocked at how good it is. I've been using it for 4 weeks, and my acne is better if anything. And just to give you an idea of other foundations I've tried and have ultimately found lacking for my very oily and sensitive skin:
MAC (studio, face and body, etc, including most of the pro stuff... powder, cream, liquid and air brush types)
Benefit (cream and liquid)
BareMinerals (and EverydayMinerals, other knockoffs too)
Graftobian (cream and airbrush)
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (tented moisturizer and airbrush)
Luminess (air brush)
Paul & Joe (liquid)
Clinique (powdered types and liquid)
Makeup Forever (cream and liquid)
Laura Mercier (liquid)
Dior (liquid and the 'spray on' kind they had)
Virtually all drug store brands for liquid and powder types, including the new Western versions of BB Creams
And let's not even go into all the primers I've tried. I have every kind you can imagine, and I've tried making diy stuff too. But I love the Skin79 BB Cream so much, I could throw everything else I have away. Doesn't need a primer, barely needs translucent powder over the top, looks even more natural than air brush foundation, gives a ton of coverage, and it's cheap!!! I'd really like to try other kinds when mine runs out, but I just have no experience with them. Missha and Skin Food get lots of good reviews, but I don't know.
So, my questions to you:
What BB Creams have you tried? Any brands or particular products?
Any pros/cons? Did it irritate your skin, cause a breakout, etc?
