mua professional bb cream

| mua professional bb cream in medium*- £4 selected superdrug stores/online |

i have to say when i initally heard bb creams were hitting uk shores back in july of last year i was excited but a little dubious that they would live up to my beloved skin 79 super+ bb cream from asia. and i was right. people who hadn't tried asian bb creams were loving them but said they seemed the same as tinted moisturisier... whereas those who had were clear that none compared! so rather than try them out for myself i decided to wait it out until one got the seal of approval from asian beauty lovers or really stuck out to me! the mua one was a product i was able to try at their spring product launch and i couldn't wait until i could get my hands on it!

the shades come up pretty light and to my surprise i'm actually the medium shade, the light truly is for really fair skin so it may be worth have a swatch in stores before buying. the cream is initially quite thick, normally a bb cream is thicker than a tinted moisturiser but not quite as thick as a foundation but i definitely say this leans towards foundation consistency. once applied the product feels far less heavy, blending in beautifully and offering a medium coverage with a nice dewy finish, which is not quite enough to cover all my blemishes but is nice in the summer with a good concealer if you don't want to go all out with make-up.

my skin79 bb cream does have a one up on this, in that it contains spf for day wear but for evenings this will be great as i won't have a ghost face in pictures!

have you tried the mua bb cream? any other uk versions to recommend?

  1. Looks great! I've still yet to try a BB Cream as I always seem to hear amazing and then not-so-amazing reviews.

    1. that's how i felt about them. i think it's worth picking up a super cheap one to see how you feel about the formula and then branch out from there! :) xo

  2. I have tried this and are it is very thick. Unfortunately it does not work with my skin at all, but then no product will suit everyone I suppose :) My personal favourites from the UK BB market are the No7 one for normal/ oily skin and the Maybelline one x
