As beauty editors, you come to learn that some makeup products are easier to pick out than others. Sure, you’ve got your favorite mascara or lipstick and the day it gets discontinued is the day you give up on life, but there’s really no greater task than finding the right coverage option for your skin. With tinted moisturizers, various foundation formulas, BB/CC and now even DD creams (no joke) on the market, sometimes you’ve just gotta jump in there and try a few options before you settle down. And that’s just what we did with our beauty pick of the week! After hearing about this cutting-edge cream coverage, we decided to give it a try ourselves. Introducing the La-Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur: We tried you for a week, and here’s what we really think!
Right off the bat you can tell that when they say, “cream mousse” they really mean cream mouse (“they” being the package!). It comes out of the little tube like a fluffy cloud and just based on the texture, it’s clear that this is one of those BB creams that can actually provide coverage.
Because it’s not just a BB, but a BB Blur, it instantly absorbs any shine and blurs away pores or blemishes you may have. Seriously! When applied with a damp makeup sponge, the coverage is completely smooth, even and almost airbrush-like. After over a week of daily use, it’s safe to say that this oil-absorbing mousse feels like a lightweight tinted moisturizer, but is as buildable as medium-to-full coverage foundation, without the heavy feel of most mattifying options. Now you don’t have to compromise on coverage just so you can feel like you’re NOT wearing makeup. It’s the best of both worlds!
While you may be more inclined to try this product if you have oily skin, rest assured that matte does not mean lackluster or flat! As someone that prefers a dewy finish, your complexion’s natural glow still comes through! And if you’re looking for an extra boost of luminosity, all you have to do is mix in a dab of liquid highlighter.
