Does anyone use one?
I am after some brands to look at not to $$$ though
Don't want a pressed powder, after a foundation that is natural looking and looks like you don't have make up on.
I have Nude mineral powder have had it for many years now and feel its time for a change the powder is starting to annoy me would rather something I can easily and quickly wipe over my face

I think Natio make one?
I'm using an Estee Lauder one at the moment. You could also have a look at Revlon, they make a few. Depends on what texture you're after - some are quite creamy, others more a powder you can use wet or dry.
Over summer though I have been using BB cream. If you want quick and easy, it's great

Another vote for BB cream - I use the garnier one.
I wore foundation everyday for 15 years - I thought I would try BB for lazier days and I haven't worn foundation since.
It doesn't cover as much as a foundation but I prefer the lighter, more natural coverage. It's just enought to make me feel as though I don't look like an overtired, stressed mumma haha

If you don't want the full coverage of foundation then like PP's have said, BB cream is a good option.
I have used a compact foundation many years ago by Napoleon, not on myself, just on clients so can't speak from personal experience. I'm not sure if they still make it or not.

Thanks all for your replies
Can someone please explain and tell me what BB cream is?
You have all mentioned it I have seen it pop up on posts in EB but don't know anything about it?
Is it make up?
Is it like a moisturiser?
Where do you buy it and how much is it
Posted 21 February 2013 - 02:12 PM
BB cream is pretty much a tinted moisturiser, often with SPF. If you want a bit of coverage but not too much then it's a good option. You can buy it most places that stock makeup, lots of brands make one. I have seen garnier ones in woolies and Coles and I think they are somewhere around the $15 mark from memory.

Thanks for the feedback
With Garnier what is the difference between the BB cream and the Miracle skin Perfector??
Which one if either do you use?
Posted 21 February 2013 - 07:17 PM
Im pretty sure it's the same product. I think their BB cream is called Miracle Skin Perfector

Thanks last question do you tend to go the lighter colour or darker
Posted 21 February 2013 - 07:35 PM
I would usually go for the slightly lighter shade over the darker. Using a shade darker than your skin tone can look a bit odd not matching the rest of your skin especially if some of it has wiped away. Do always blend your product down your neck whatever colour you use. I do this by mixing some of it with moisturiser and rubbing into the neck and décolletage area.

Another one for garnier bb cream. Go for the lighter if you are fair, the colour darkens when it oxidises. I'm fair with freckles & would normally go a light tan or mid beige sort of colour in foundation, and the lighter one is perfect. its great for evening out skin tone & actually improves my skin. I use face of Australia translucent powder over the top if I want to look a bit more "made up". I haven't tried it, but palmers hb cream got good reviews somewhere too.
