“Not worth the price.”
I’ve been wanting to try this out since I heard it was being formulated late last year. When it finally hit shelves, I couldn’t find it in any of the local stores around my neighborhood, and I didn’t want to order online. I went into Wal-Mart yesterday, and low and behold: BAM! It was there.
So I finally got a hold of some of Iman’s BB Cream! A BB cream for women of color!? Fuck yeah!
Shade: Clay Medium (I almost got Clay Medium Deep)
Unfortunately… I’m not very impressed by it so far, especially not to have spent 20 bucks on it. Eeeh..
Before: Soo, me without makeup. Hella pale, skin imperfections, puffy under eyes
After: Brightened and more evened skintone, not much coverage, made skin shinier, made puffy under eyes even more visible -__- (and I filled in my eyebrows, I had to. Lol)
Well, these are just my first impressions. I just don’t feel like it makes much of a difference… and for it to make my skin shiny is just, urggh.. Not good. I already have oily skin, so that’s the last thing I need.
I suppose it would be fine to wear if I’m just running out to the store, doing errands. I guess it does look nice for a “Fresh face” kinda look. Granted my skin already feels smooth, this BB cream still makes it feel nice. And I can’t “feel” it sitting on my skin (where as some foundations are heavy and you know it’s there). So that is all a plus.
This is what my full face of makeup would usually consist of:
Mascara or False Lashes
(Circle lenses? Does that count hahaha)
And here I’m only wearing:
Iman’s BB cream
Setting Powder (I just can’t with the shininess!! Dx)
So, I’m going to keep it on all day/night. I’ll report back later to let you all know how this BB holds up. I’ll even workout in it haha. Maybe I’ll like it better when I use it more often. It’s suppose to improve my overall skintone over time (days, weeks, months), so I’ll be watching out for that too.
Again, these are just my first impressions.
