I was given some sample packs of the Sheer Glowing by my friends. While I don't have classic dry skin, I do like to use products that will give moisture and hydration to my skin.
This BB cream isn't as thick in consistency as other BB creams that I use.
Despite that fact, it provides amazingly good coverage, which is not all that common in BB creams. I would say that the color of it falls more in the neutral zone, not too yellow and not too pink. Unfortunately, it does come in only one shade and I think that it's more suited to people in the NC 20 range. I fall in the NC 25 range--actually if there was a NC 27, I think that's where I'd be. Unlike most BB creams, the color doesn't turn ashy at all!
Face prepped and primed
BB cream applied to half of face. You can see it's too light for my skin tone.
Face fully covered with BB cream.
I often have products oxidize on my so I was hoping that this would oxidize and become better matched to my skintone.
This is take after 2 hours of wear, which is often the timing of when products will have oxidized on me.
Face vs. neck--really obvious difference. *sigh*
Unfortunately, it does not. I really like this BB cream. It provides excellent coverage without feeling heavy, it doesn't turn ashy and I think that it gives off a nice glow to my skin. If I ever manage to get my neck paler, this is definitely a BB cream that I would use. While I don't normally use powder, I wonder if I can use a darker shade powder around the edges of my face to create a darker shading to match. Yes, that is how much I like this BB cream.
Have a happy Easter weekend everyone!
