I received MUA’s BB Cream in Medium, Shade 2. I thought that this would be too dark for me but it is actually quite a good match.
There is no need to use primer when using this all in one product.
The BB cream is very thick and, well, creamy! This makes it quite difficult to blend, you have to really buff it in otherwise you will be left with patches. I use my Sigma F80 to apply and find that this works well.
It is very long lasting, even on my greasy skin! I apply at 7:30am and it is still going strong at 6pm when I arrive home from work
This isn’t the best product that I’ve ever used for coverage but it certainly isn’t the worse. It reduces the redness of spots very well, it just didn’t do so well around my nose. It also tends to cling to dry areas, as thicker foundations do.
The finish is quite dewy which, as a greasy skin sufferer I’m not keen on. I found that a dusting of ELF’s HD Powder soaked up the finish and made it nice and matte.
My skin does seem to have a ‘glow’ to it when wearing this.
The major draw backs with this product are that there is no SPF and that it is only available in three shades, some people may struggle to find a decent match.
MUA BB Cream costs £4 and is available to buy from MUA’s on-line store and in Superdrug stores.
