So there is hope after all! Many of you who are familiar with BB creams know they only come in 2-3 colors, and all of them are light! When this product hit the states many big name brand such as MAC, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox hopped on the BB cream bandwagaon. Instead of offering a variety of shade like thye do in their regualr lines, they followed the Asian market to the "T" and only offere 2-3 shades, leaving us melanin rich girls out. When Garnier came out with their BB cream, I thought there was hope, but yet I left the drugstore disappointed again.
Today, Maybelline changed all that! While on the hunt for nail polished for my best friend I saw their new product on an aisle display. It was BB cream in 5 shades! (NOTE: THE PITURE ABOVE ADVERTISES FOUR, BUT I COUNTED 5 IN WALGREENS!) I picked up the darkest shade in "Deep". It is not a perfect match, but I can definitely make it work. I know this because it is the same shade as my L'oreal True Match foundation in Cool Cocoa. I made that foundation work by wearing it with a darker powder. I shall do the same for Maybelline's BB Cream. I'm so excited to try it. Stay tuned for a in depth review in the future!
