So welcome to this week’s Foundation Friday… today its the LA Girl Pro BB Cream! As an aside, let me know if you guys want a Foundation Friday every week? Or should I make it every other week? Let me know!
So we’re doing another BB cream – and this is one I have been dying to try for quite some time. I first saw Tati’s review of it on Youtube, which spurred my desire to try it, and when I realized that OffDutyBasics carried a bunch of LA girl, I hauled a bunch of stuff.
I’ve been wearing this cream on and off since I’ve gotten it, and I have to say, the hype is real.
I don’t know what it is, but there’s an amazing blurring property about this BB cream. I applied it with a brush and immediately my skin texture changed. I’ve tried using a sponge, and I found that I liked the application. I personally don’t use sponges, just because BB creams have a lot of built-in luminosity, and I don’t need to sheer them out.
The consistency is really nice – not too runny and not too thick. I find it doesn’t give a white cast like a lot of BB creams, which is a plus. it applies easily and non streaky with both a brush and a beauty blender.
There’s no obvious scent to the product, and it comes in an easy squeezy tube. The range is quite impressive, so everyone can find something (hooray!). I wear the shades Medium and Medium-Dark, depending on the season. Sadly, I’ve lost most of my summer tan and Medium suits me quite well right now:
In terms of wear time, I went my usual 8-10 hour day and I did have to blot midway through the day. There was no transfer to my blotting sheet, but I did set it with my LA girl pro powder (also a winner!). It holds up quite well, especially considering it’s a BB cream.
As I mentioned above, make sure you set it if that’s your preference. I feel like any liquid product it could slip around if you don’t set it, but of course do what works for your skin type.
Overall: this BB cream is a must. It’s so affordable, beautiful on the skin and easy to use. Definitely worth it!
Hope you enjoyed Foundation Friday!
Until next time,
