Martha, I was going to say Touche Eclat, too. :-) I don't use makeup on the skin otherwise, so I don't know anything about this stuff otherwise, but I sometimes use this one under the eyes if I look tired.
Ack, I had never even heard of BB Cream, and now because of you guys, I've purchased that (Loreal) and a tinted moisturizer (Almay - the only one the store had). I hate wearing makeup on the weekends, so I'm hoping the moisturizer will be a compromise.
I don't like wearing makeup on the weekend either so a few months ago I bought tinted moisturizer by Physician's formula. In terms of light color/coverage it works well, but when I bought it, I failed to notice that it has sunscreen which has always made my skin feel tight and dry. I used it a couple of times but can't stand that tightness so it's a no go for me. Does the Almay one have sunscreen? If not, I might give it a try.
During the work week, I wear the BB cream - Loreal - which I love. Have you tried yours yet? What do you think?.
My fancy Korean BB Cream arrived today! It's Misha Perfect Cover BB Cream #21.
I have very pale winter skin with pink undertones. As I started to apply this, my first thought was, thank God I didn't order the lightest shade! #21 is very light but blends perfectly. There was one shade lighter (#13 I think?) and that may have made me look like a mime. My biggest problem with regular foundation is that it tends to be too dark and warm. The BB cream actually matched. I read that you should apply it lightly and build it instead of putting a lot on at once. Today, I probably erred on the side of applying it too lightly but I wanted to make sure it was going to look ok in all lights (outdoors, fluorescent ) and not just look good in my bathroom mirror. It doesn't look like I'm wearing any makeup but it did even out my skin tone. I experienced the thing where it goes on pretty grey looking but then oxidizes? I guess? And becomes a perfect match after a couple of minutes. It was a really nice texture and smelled good. It was a tiny bit tingly in a good way, like I've experienced with some anti-aging serums. The scent and the vaguely zippy sensation both fade but the finish is still looking really good 5 hours later. The coverage is light. It didn't totally cover my freckle or two, but I barely used any. I wanted to make sure I wasn't deathly allergic to it and that it didn't cause a terrible breakout. So far, so good! I'll definitely apply a bit more next time now that I know it blends well and is not poison.
Regarding Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer: I have both the Positively Radiant and Positively Ageless kind. The Ageless is much more drying on my skin. I like the Radiant one as it's a lot more sheer and light. And since I live in a very humid climate, the Radiant brand doesn't feel all gross (my skin is dry) on my face.
Now I'm hanging around the Clinique website looking at Chubby Sticks for lips and eyes. Anybody ever tried them? Thoughts? They're $16 each so I'm trying to contain myself. But they have free shipping when you buy two...
Maybe I could install parental controls to keep me off of shopping websites. :-)
