BB Cream Showdown and $30 Sephora Giveaway!

I am a BB cream addict.  I love being able to throw on this magical cream and have fairly flawless skin.  I am still looking for the holy grail of BB creams, though.  I found some good ones, but I am still on the search for the perfect one.  Here's the beginning of my journey.

BB Cream Showdown 1

Stila HD Illuminating Beauty Balm: This cream has really no coverage and I didn't really notice much of a difference in my complexion.  I think this qualifies more as a tinted moisturizer.

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm: This cream is very pigmented.  You don't need to use too much to get full coverage.  It's not oily at all, but it has absolutely no shine control.  Because of it's great pigmentation, I would love to be able to use this cream by itself for a casual makeup look.  However, you absolutely need a shine control powder on top of it.  

Boscia BB Cream: I really wanted to like this cream.  It's like and fluffy and has the best shine control of the group.  However, it's a self-adjusting shade and turned my skin a little orangey.  I think this cream might work better on those with darker complixeions.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream:  When I put this on my makeup sponge, it seemed really watery; however, this cream had the best coverage of the bunch.  Unfortunately, it had absolutely no shine control.  

Dr. Jart BB Cream: This cream was the full package,  It had great coverage, was light and went on smoothly.  And it had pretty good shine control.  None of the other creams even compared.  The only downside is that it's a little pricey at $39.

So, the clear winner of the group is Dr. Jart BB Cream, but honorable mention goes to Smashbox for best coverage and Boscia for best shine control.

And now, you can get your perfect BB cream courtesy of my sponsors with a $30 Sephora gift card!  Enter to win below.
