17 BB Blemish Balm All In One Magic Make-Up, priced at £6.99 available from Boots
17 cosmetics launched their BB Blemish Balm All In One Magic Make-Up at the start of the year and as I said in my No7 Airbursh Away primer post, I had accidently misplaced the products so I'm just getting around to sharing this with you - though I'm sure you have heard of it by now. BB creams are still all the rage and with brands bringing out new ones every other week, it can be a little daunting at which to pick and 17 cosmetics have impressed me with theirs. The creamy formula melts seamlessly into my skin, feels weightless and moisturising, yet it still conceals my many flaws. I was surprised by the coverage and texture, considering the price my expectations were low but after a week of using this every day, I loved how my skin looked perfect. After using my No7 Airbrush Away primer (review here) I buffed this in with my Real Techniques stippling brush, as I found it buffed it in to a fuller coverage, I only needed to touch up a few blemishes with concealer. This concealed everything else really well and controlled shine on my nose too. If however you can't bare to part with your fuller coverage foundations, then a thin layer of this works well as a base too, it's hydrating on the skin whilst also controlling oil - I tried used their Miracle Matte foundation, review to come, over the top and together they created seriously flawless skin. It boasts an SPF 25 too to protect your skin from those harmful rays we all try avoid. It comes in two shades Light and Medium, I wear the shade medium (I will get swatches of both up soon) and find it suits me perfectly, though both do give you a little room to work with if they aren't spot on, as they seem to almost adapt to your skin.
For the price, £6.99, I don't think you can go wrong with giving this a try and if you haven't tried BB creams yet then this is a good product to start with.
