I promise I haven't forgotten you all! Summers in Maine are so short and I want to enjoy it as much as possible so it's definitely a time when I'll be blogging a bit less, but bear with me :)
Moving on to today's topic- BB cream. I'll always love my Bare Minerals but since my skin is dry, I've been on the lookout for a liquid formula to give me a dewy glow. An additional hurdle is that everything makes me break out so I have to be extra careful about what I put on my face (especially after a very bad experience with Revlon Colorstay last year).
The solution? Skin clearing makeup! With 2% Salicylic Acid, it actually treats and prevents acne while providing coverage. I picked up Maybelline Pure BB Cream for under $6 last week and couldn't be happier. Having only five color options made me nervous, but the Medium/Deep adjusted perfectly to my olive skin tone and covered every flaw. It even provided more coverage than some of the higher end foundations I've tried. It takes two minutes to slap on, lasts through the entire day with no touch ups (I did not use a primer or setting power/spray with it) and doesn't look cakey or unnatural. It makes you look glowing and healthy.
