6 Best BB and CC Creams That Actually Have CoverageAugust 19, 2019
In recent years, BB and CC creams have become standard fare and have replaced many a foundation and powder compact. What was once the last step of a K-beauty routine, is now a star in its own right — and it’s not hard to imagine why. These all-in-one complexion products offer sun protection, skin care benefits, color correction and work well with sensitive skin, making them an easy to use and versatile option for any beauty enthusiast. One of the biggest drawbacks? They typically offer light, barely there coverage that can be difficult for beauty lovers in committed relationships with their full coverage foundations. That’s where BB and CC creams with coverage come in — hybrid formulas with all the benefits and buildable coverage you’ll love.
Peep our faves, ahead:
If you’re looking for a hydrating formula that will nourish your skin, then add the Bienfait Teinté Beauty Balm to your routine. It offers up to 24 hours of hydration without getting greasy and still provides a moderate amount of coverage. It’s the perfect base for a full face makeup look and might just make you break up with your foundation for good.
If you’re looking for something with a little coverage but feels light on the skin, we recommend White Tea Tinted Veil by WinkyLux. The tea-infused moisturizer contains vitamin A and E to nourish the skin while broad spectrum SPF protects the skin from UV rays. At $25 a bottle, it’s an affordable alternative to pricier options and works just as well.
While many BB and CC creams are available in a very limited shade range, Thrive Causemetics CC Cream is available in 21 shades — allowing a wide range of beauty lovers to add a quality CC cream to their beauty bags. The formula is buildable, meaning you can use one pump to blur imperfections or add a few more to create a full coverage beat. It’s also formulated with skin-loving ingredients like vitamin C and flaxseed extract and has the added benefit of broad spectrum SPF so you can apply knowing you’re doing good things for your skin, too.
With thousands of 5-star reviews, there are nothing but good things to say about this fan-favorite CC cream. It really is your skin but better, providing coverage without feeling heavy and lasting throughout the day. The coverage is also easy to control — making it a perfect option for someone who wants an all-in-one product they can use for every occasion.
A moisturizer, serum and sunscreen all in one, this hybrid BB cream is perfect for the beauty babe looking to simplify her routine. It has a dewy finish that keeps skin looking fresh and radiant. We recommend this formula for someone looking for an everyday BB cream that will enhance their skincare and create that I-woke-up-like this glow.
This lightweight, color correcting CC cream is a splurge you can feel good about. Once applied, it brightens skin and evens out tone while minimizing the appearance of discoloration. It offers light but noticeable coverage and has SPF 35, giving your skin an added layer of protection (in addition to your daily SPF, of course).
