MY TAKE ON SUGAR GODDESS OF FLAWLESS SPF 30+ BB CREAM
Packaging: The BB cream comes in a characteristic ‘sugar’ packaging. The tube is matte and looks pretty. The opening is narrow so it delivers the right amount of product without spillage.
Texture: The BB cream feel just like a thick mousse-cream blends beautifully and in no time! Settles to a velvety-matte finish.
Shade: There are a total of 4 shades in the range, I got my match- Macchiato (medium) which will suit a lot of Indian medium skin tones. I am NC 42 by the way. The shade looks great on well moisturized skin but tends to get a bit whiter if your skin is all dry so make sure you moisturize your skin before application to get the closest/true shade match.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply dot the product all over your face and blend using your finger tips. You could also use a beauty blender but I feel fingers work the best because of the creamy texture. Make sure you use a moisturizer prior to application if the weathers are dry or if your skin is dry.
I am not really a BB person because I have problematic skin and I prefer medium to full coverage foundations. There are days when I don’t really want to do any makeup but just want some glow/brightness and flaunt the no-makeup look; that is when this product comes into the frame (also because it contains SPF and I can skip my sunscreen too!)! The BB cream has light coverage and won’t really hide any flaws on your skin but I really love the way it brightens up my complexion and evens out my skin tone! The finish is great- matte and velvety and that is something I prefer! You can always use a concealer underneath to hide dark spots because this is a lightweight BB cream and expecting the product to work like your medium-full coverage foundation would be so unfair! The product does cling to dry patches on your face so moisturize well if required. The product stays on all day long and feels really comfortable on the skin. All in all, I like the product and it does everything you expect from an ‘ideal’ BB cream!
