Guys, I'm excited to tell you about this amazing line called 100% Pure. They are an organic, pure, vegan cosmetic company with some of the best products I've tried. To learn more about this brand, please visit www.100percentpure.com.
In this post, I'll be bragging about their new BB Cream in the shade 10 Luminous.
If you don't know this already, I'm a huge fan of BB creams. I haven't been shopping for a foundation in several years(excluding Chanel's Aqua Vitalumière for my fall '15 wedding day, though it was very similar to a BB cream)!
Personally, BB creams work better for my skin and they are what I look for in a makeup product. They are usually light to medium coverage, brighten my skin complexion, and don't make me want to scrape it off with my nails. I seriously can't stand products that suffocate your skin, eventually causing breakouts. Eww!
When I received my 100% Pure package in the mail, I got the BB Cream 10 Luminous and 3 sample packets of nourishing body cream(2 honey almond and 1 vanilla bean). I've been using their body cream in lavender for a while now and it is phenomenal, moisturizing and not greasy or heavy. So I was excited to explore some other scents.
This BB cream claims to give you a glowing, flawless, illuminated complexion with full to medium coverage with SPF 15 to help prevent sunburn.
So I put it to the test!
The consistency was pretty sticky and I wasn't sure about it at first. I applied it on clean skin after my morning skin care regimen(cleanser, toner, moisture serum, eye cream, day moisturizer).
I started applying on my forehead and realized how I couldn't blend it very well with my fingertips because of the sticky consistency. So I blended it with my beauty blender and finished applying on the rest of my face/neck with the beauty blender. The beauty blender definitely worked a lot better than my fingertips. The bb cream was distributed on evenly and it didn't make my face feel sticky and icky like I thought it would. The scent of it is very light and, to me, similar to Destin baby cream.
Honestly, from the first impression, I didn't think I would like this at all. But I gave it a go for a few full days before I rated it. And now I'm hooked!
The photos below show what I look like before the bb cream, and without any makeup at all vs after only the bb cream(and a little bit of lip balm because my lips were so chapped).
You can see the difference in the photos but it's actually a lot better in person. These photos don't really do well in showing the amount of glow I actually had. It was crazy!
My skin was bright and glowing and it appeared as if I spent a long time making up my face and highlighting. But in actuality, it took me about a minute!
The coverage was more like light to medium rather than medium to full, which was perfect for me. Of course, you can easily build it up to full coverage by adding on more all over or just on spots needing more coverage.
Side note: My skin was recovering from a freak out session due to a climate change. Sorry for looking so haggard in the photos! >.<
So in conclusion, here are my pros and cons.
