|Lumene BB cream Left unblended right blended|
I bought this from Walgreens about two weeks ago when they were having the bogoFREE sale for Lumene products. See a pattern here growing? It’s those bogoFREE sales that get me all the time. I decided to take the risk and buy two of them since I never tried any of their other products either. Also Walgreens does not carry the night creme I wanted to try.
I have had quite a few bad experiences with BB creams, American, British, and Asian bb creams included. My expectations for this bb cream was extremely low. If I didn’t like the coverage and it didn’t break me out I was going to use it as a base before my foundation.

– Delays the signs of aging
– Covers imperfections
– Evens skin tone
These claims seem to be a lot more reasonable compared to other brands who claim up to 9 benefits.
Now here’s what I thought about this bb cream, I LOVE it! Here’s why; It gives almost medium coverage. It makes my old acne spots disappear. It blurs my imperfections. It covers what I need it to cover. If I have an unfortunate blemish it covers it a little. If I put a little dot of concealer just makes it completely disappear.
This is semi thick. Which I like, a lot. As you are rubbing it in with your fingers it blends smoothly into the skin. It does seem pretty dark for a light color, no need to worry. It does not turn me orange. It actually blends perfectly into my skin. This doesn’t break out my skin.
I can say with confidence that this does not break my skin out because if I use a product that doesn’t agree with my skin the very next day a few blemishes pop up on my chin and forehead. No blemishes in site after using this for two weeks.
My only problem is that this does fade after about 4 hours. I can live with this because if I do a powder touch up it still gives me the coverage I want. I can live with that. I like to wear this when I’m running a quick errand or on my short class days. I evern worn it on a long class day and just did a powder touch up.
|With setting powder, no concealer added.|
One thing I can not comment on if I notice any anti-aging benefits. I have only been using it for about two weeks now. I also show no signs of aging. Other than that I do complete agree that they deliver on all the claims they say.

VERDICT: Even if it doesn’t last all day, only a touch up of new powder is needed. It does not break me out, and gives me almost medium coverage when I apply it with my fingers. It is pricey about $15. I suggest waiting for sales to make it cheaper. Thank god I got this on a bogoFREE sale. Look out for those sales at walgreens. I absolutely recommend this to everyone who wants a good coverage BB cream without breaking the bank. Can be found at CVS, Ulta and Walgreens.
