Estee Lauder BB Cream

I managed to pop into boots and get hold on a sample of the new Estee Lauder BB cream which came out on Monday. Im a big fan of Estee Lauder Make-Up. Their Double Wear Foundation is an absolute must have. I have been waiting for this for a while after hearing that Estee were bringing out a version of the BB cream.

It claims to;
  • Provide an instant, even-toned, healthy look.
  • Powerful protection with our proven Super Anti-Oxidant Complex and SPF 35.
  • High-performance, oil-free hydration.
  • Helps to control excess surface oil.
  • Available in 2 shades to suit a wide range of skintones.
The SA tested both shades on me. The light shade was the winner. She advised that this could be used under or instead of foundation. And it can replace the primer I am using at the moment as it will provide a flawless base. Its priced at £32 . So was this worth waiting for?? The answer is... maybe not.

The fragrance of this is so lovely. When you put this on your skin it smells so fresh and it blends really well. I used this under my foundation, like a primer as the SA had advised. I applied all over my face, let it sink in for abit then applied my concealer and foundation as normal. Unfortunately, It didn't provide that flawless look I was hoping for.

Also since I have been using this product I have broken out on my chin. The only thing I can think of that I have been doing/using differently is using this product. My foundation also doesn't seem to last that long since using this. When I checked my Make-Up at lunch time I felt that it I needed to re-apply my Make-up again :(

Overall I am really disappointed that this hasn't worked for me as I had high hopes for this product.

What do you think of the BB creams available at the moment? Have you tried any and which are favourites? xx
