BB cream

Rain Cosmetics Conceal and Reveal & Maybelline Baby Lips in Fruit Punch

Hey Guys!

I have so many fun beauty products and spring posts planned and can’t wait to keep sharing with you guys all of my amazing beauty finds!!! How was everyone’s weekend?? I had a birthday along with my adorable niece McKinley, we share a birthday on the 17th. Here is a photo of us I took with my phone. :) It was a really enjoyable weekend.

I have a few beauty items that are new recent found LOVES that I want to tell you guys about. The first is a foundation. I don’t stray from my MAC studio Fix Fluid or BRTC Jasmine Water BB cream too often, but Rain Cosmetics has a new foundation called,

“Conceal and Reveal.”  It is a new silky foundation that is lightweight and has medium to full coverage.

To me it almost feels whipped, kind of like a mousse, but with INCREDIBLE coverage while feeling soft and light on your skin.  It has an SPF 15 and comes in 6 shades. For me the Baby Doll Bisque is the perfect shade. 

It is oil free, hypoallergenic and for made for all skin types. 

I also want to point out that the packaging is very convenient. It’s a squeeze tube that allows you to really use all the foundation up. It also would be easy to throw in a purse or travel with , since it is not glass, you don’t have to worry about it breaking open. :)

 

 

I am also really loving the Maybelline Baby Lips in Fruit Punch!!! I have written about the baby lips before , which are only $2.99 in your local drugstore or Target, but the fruit punch one is amazing. Right now, baby pink lips are really in!! At the Grammy’s there were so many celebrities in a light soft baby pink lip color. 

This lip product gives pretty good color for only  $2.99 , plus it is working to protect and hydrate your lips!

In this photo I am wearing both the Maybelline Baby Lips in Fruit Punch and the Rain Cosmetics Conceal and Reveal in “baby doll bisque”. :) 

Talk to you all soon.Have a wonderful day everyone!!

Love, Lauren

Have you Heard of BB Creams? BRTC Brand Review...

Hey Guys!  How is everyone? I was doing a lot of makeup for prom this weekend and that always makes me very busy and very tired. It left me little time to write something up for all of you. But, the good news is todays post is going to be very informal and interesting. 

Have you heard of BB Creams? BB stands for Blemish Balm. I was seeing a lot of  beauty experts talk about this product and I immediately wanted to try it. I recently have had the opportunity to try 2 BB creams from the BRTC brand. My opinion so far has been EXTREMELY POSITIVE. I LOVE this stuff. Why isn't it more popular in the U.S yet? That is my question... 

BB Creams are very popular in East and Southeast Asia. This is also the only known place I know that is selling them right now. They may have popped up in other areas but I am not aware of them. BB creams were first used in Germany  by dermatologists in order to help laser surgery patients. The cream was to help sooth and protect sensitive skin while providing some coverage for imperfections. Korean celebrities quickly found out about this product that provides natural coverage while hydrating and priming the skin. 

The interesting thing about this product is it's multi-use function, foundation, primer, moisturizer, sometimes it has sunscreen, other times it has brightening properties and other good nutrients for the skin! 

My experience, LOVE AT FIRST USE! The first one I tried was the BRTC Jasmine Water BB cream. 

This seems to have about medium coverage, it conceals very well and matches my skin perfectly even though it only comes in one color! AMAZING! It also feels very hydrating and my skin has been feeling so wonderful since I started using this a few weeks ago. It seems to dry to almost a natural or matte finish which I love. I don't feel like I need to even where foundation with this and the best part is I only need about a pea size amount. 

The other one I tried is the BRTC Gold Caviar BB cream. This one seemed to have a little lighter coverage with a satin finish. My skin tends to be oily to normal and I didn't like the finish of this one as much. But, I would definitely recommend this one for dry skin. 

This has only been my first experience with any brand of BB cream. But, so far my experience has been so positive and left me feeling like I need to try more!!

Tell me, have you heard of BB cream? Tell me your experience. I have a feeling BB cream is going to be pretty popular in years to come. 

Love LO
