Yay! I have been trying out several BB creams and up until now, I have only found one brand that worked for my complexion. As we know, most brands only have BB shades up to my complexion which is CRAZY!!! How could my complexion be the deepest shade that offer? It’s really sad that alot of brands don’t cater to women of color..until Iman Cosmetics started their BB Creme line. YAY for Iman!!!
I love the fact that Iman is amazing and continues to bring us new products for women of color..not just Black women..but if you notice in their advertising campaigns- their products include shades for Latina and Asian women as well.
I was so happy to get my hands on some BB Creme. If you are unfamiliar with BB Creme’s, here is the scoop on their creme:
- EVENS with Skin Tone Evener Complex enriched with Acai, Licorice and Grape Seed
- PROTECTS with SPF 15 & antioxidants.
- HYDRATES with Kokum, Almond, Aloe and Vitamins A, E and C
- COMPLIMENTS your skin tone with a hint of color in 5 perfect-match shades
I picked my shade very easily looking at the Find Your Shade page on Iman’s website. I went with Sand Medium which is I think the 2nd shade. (looks a little light in the picture but it’s not that light)
I used it by itself and not as a base (some people use BB Creme as a base). I used a stippling brush and I absolutely loved the results. It’s so perfect for the weather and not heavy. The product is literally light like a tinted moisturizer.
Check out the results:
It gives me a nice smooth complexion. Once I add a little bronzer and blush, it completes the look. I could totally just stop at the BB Creme but I wanted a little bit of color added to my cheeks.
Here is a close up at the end of the day. It still looks smooth but doesn’t look like cakey makeup.
