So unless you've been living under a rock with your fingers in your ears you'll know the biggest beauty craze currently is BB creams. I love them. I use my Skin79 one on a daily basis and definitely would not be without it. So far I've been less then impressed with the UK's offerings of BB creams. So i was a little excited and slightly skeptical about trying a new one. Would it stand up against one of my holy grail products?
The answer is no...
I'll tackle the obvious problem first, colouring. I purchased the shade Light as I'm generally around an NC15 or lighter. As you can see it's quite a bit darker than i am, although it's not as bad on the face. But obviously if your a little more tanned than me (it's not hard, I'm verging on Casper) this could work for you.

Personally i thought the coverage was poor. It's quite thick in consistency but is unable to cover even minimal flaws. Even though i feel it does give poor coverage i found it was more visible on the skin, certainly not flawless as 17 describe it. I had to use a powder with a bit of coverage in it to even out my skin tone and even then it wasn't brilliant. If you're going for a no makeup makeup look, this really isn't for you!
Overall i really wouldn't recommend this, but then again that's just my opinion and you might love it!
(Not sure why i always insist on doing FOTD's when i have appalling eyebrows, apologies!)

Nars - Orgasm Blush
As you can see the finish isn't great, though I'm in love with that Fyrinnae combo! If you're looking to try out a BB cream i wholeheartedly recommend Skin79's Hot Pink BB Cream!
