Personally the feeling of caked on makeup just feels nasty. I wish I could high-five whoever first came up with the idea of a BB Cream or a tinted moisturizer…that’s how much I like them. Anyhoo- I will google that later on because right now I am going to review the Mineral Fusion All-In-One BB cream and the Mineral Fusion 3-1 Color Stick. Let’s see if these two change my life.

My Thoughts: For starters I really liked the texture of the Mineral Fusion Illuminating BB Cream, it didn’t feel heavy at all and definitely moisturized my skin. My biggest complaint would be that it really gave me very little coverage and turned a half shade darker once it set. With that said, my skin has been erupting into full fledge mountains (with white caps..haha) since I moved to Austin, TX last week and I didn’t expect the BB cream to conceal that. If my skin was in a different state (literally), I may have felt different about the coverage. It wasn’t oily at all..and with a little concealer in the blemish filled areas, I was able to make it work. I don’t however think that this will work for everyone as there is only one shade that is suppose to adjust to everyones skin tone. It’s a pretty light shade and I think it would make a darker skin tone look ashy. One last thing, it has a spf of 9!! What? Mmm…thats really not going to do much for me in the sun so I will def. have to apply some additional sunscreen.

Overall Thoughts & Opinions:
I am disappointed in the BB cream. I think for most people…one size (or shade) doesn’t fit all because we are all so unique and different. However, I LOVE the 3-in-1 Color Stick for sure. What do you guys think?
