By now a lot of you ladies know about my face woes. Even though I’ve tried quite a few BB creams and CC creams, I haven’t had much success. Yet I continue to try them. I’m a college student, so when getting ready for class in the morning I want to cut out the most time I can getting ready and save that for sleeping!
Today I have MUA BB cream in light. MUA claims it will prime, smooths and conceals. :
Inspired by Asian Beauty Balms, our brand new MUA BB Foundation is a full coverage foundation containing a multi-functional formula that conceals, brightens and evens out skin tone for a perfect complexion. Its great range of shades will adapt to suit all skin tones. Apply with a big dense brush and buff into the skin for the perfect flawless finish. Easily the hottest and best product in your handbag – it’s the perfect size too! It comes in three shades, light, medium and dark – all new tones developed for the BB Foundation. With its adapting technologies, you’re sure to find a tone to suit you!
That’s a lot to claim for such a small price about 5 euros or $6. I like to apply this with my fingers, but I have tried applying with a stippling brush as well. I like the coverage when I first apply. I do apply this over a primer, because I know my skin, and face products just soak right in without a primer. I also set it with powder because it has almost a sticky, or very dew to the touch feeling without it.
I have it in the light color and it matches my skin very well, it does look a bit too light at first, but it does take about 5 minutes to adjust to my skin tone. It has the thick consistency that I have found in really Asian BB creams. Which I LOVE. It has no lasting scent.
I have a bit of downy white hair on my face. I refuse to do anything with it because most foundations and powder you never notice it. Yet with this BB cream, it makes my hairs stand out right away. I’ve tried applying it different ways; with my fingers, rubbing it in going down my face, not up. Applying it with a stippling brush in a downward motion to keep the hairs flat. No matter what way I tried it, my downy hair was visible.
About 3 hours later it has nestles right into my pores. It is very noticeable on my skin. See below photo for proof. By hour 5 it’s like I didn’t put anything on my face.
- Almost Full Coverage
- Thick consistency
- No scent
- makes downy face hair visible
- Settles into pores.
- Last 4 hours tops
VERDICT: Even though I love the coverage, and the thick consistency. The fact that it settles into my pores, make my downy face hair visible and doesn’t last long makes this a skip. It was a great try, too bad it doesn’t last long. Sells for about 5 euros or on ebay for about $7.
