I ordered these beauties a few weeks ago - and haven't put them down since. Let's be real - it was not like I needed another primer to add to my collection *rolls eyes* , and I decided I wanted to try their ColorTrend BB cream - I wanted something moisturising since I started using a Retinol serum that's making me have more normal to dry skin at this stage - but that's something for another post and decided to try this little gem from the range too.
The ColorTrend BB Cream all in One Beauty Balm for me personally is such an amazing product - I even pick to use this on days I'm working and not just off days. The coverage is light to medium depending on what beauty tool you use to apply it . A beauty blender will give you a lighter coverage than a brush. My favourite brush to apply it with currently is the Swiitch Beauty F40 Cake It Baby! Foundation Brush - this gives me medium coverage. It doesn't cake on dry patches on your skin, goes on smoothly , lasts a good 10/11 hours on me , and it's pretty affordable option. Another bonus- this doesn't seem to turn a weird orange shade on you like some BB Creams tend to do. I do set my BB Cream with a powder. I would really recommend this for drier skin types - it's an awesome little BB Cream .
All downside - it only comes in three colours - Light / Light Medium and Medium. I am using the lightest option in the range - Light.
The Avon ColorTrend primer I got a few weeks before I tried the BB cream. As you know - I'm a HUGE Primer junkie - If there is a new primer on the market - I want to at least try it . And this one was no different. My favourite primer used to be the Benefits Porefessional as mentioned in my post HERE but that has changed since getting this little beauty. This primer has a velvety texture that applies easily to the skin.
The primer does an AMAZING job of smoothing the skin out and filling pores. It gives you a smooth velvety canvas for your make-up . Even though the primer doesn't state it - it does a pretty decent job to keep your skin matte too . The only downside - I did notice that it didn't like all of my foundations - a more matte foundation did get a little cakey over this primer - but I love this for using with my BB Cream and my normal liquid foundations.
Both of these products are currently retailing for R49,95 each - which is a great bargain if you are in the market for a new BB Cream or Primer.
How has YOUR week been ?
