MAC Prep and Prime BB Cream -The Review

I finally bought 2 of the Mac BB Cream’s for my make up kit as I have been told some great things about it. There are 9 shades ranging from extra light to dark deep so ladies finally we have a BB cream that covers darker skin! This is always a problem for me when recommending a product and I can’t recommend for the darker skin tones. The BB cream is a lightly tinted balm that has sheer coverage with an SPF of 35 and can be used as a primer or on its own. If you have bad skin then use it as a primer.

I have a tan at the moment so I used the Medium Dark on my skin. What I do find that it is best used after moisturing even though it is a BB cream I find for the really dewy skin moisturise first and apply with a brush to get better coverage. In the picture below I applied the BB cream straight after applying moisturiser and have lightly concealed in areas and then just applied mascara. The BB cream has evened out my skin tone and because I have colour on my face I didn’t add any foundation. I love how it makes my skin look so definitely staying in my kit.

Its the first BB cream that I have tried that  I love.  Here is the Mac trend image for the BB cream, I love how it has made the skin look and shows you just how amazing the BB cream is on darker skin:Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 19.41.58
