Okay, well I am just going to ignore the BB element of these otherwise pretty fab concealer and highlighter palettes. I’ve rather lost the plot since the L’Oreal BB Blush as far as what BB means – it seems it can mean pretty much anything or nothing, so unless there is concrete evidence that a product has BB elements – proper ones – it’s as though those two letters were never even mentioned.
So, the concealer palettes – I like that these take into account that one concealer doesn’t do everything. Skin tone is so variable in different parts of the face (the sides of the nostrils for example will be entirely different in tone to dark under eye circles) so the option of two is good. The highlighter is a nice addition, but actually I think I would rather have seen a third concealer shade, or even a contour shade.

Completely agree, the BB thing has got a bit out of hand now. I’ve seen cream compact foundations lately ‘pretending’ to be BB creams. It’s not a BB, it’s a foundation!!
As long as it is as much skincare as it is foundation, it can be. The use of BB on everything is ridiculous, but if it provides actual coverage and skincare benefits, it should count.
& if we’re talking “Asian BB Creams are the only real BB creams”, well…
There’s plenty of precedent for cream compact (and other) formulas.
They look fab! What’s the coverage like? Not really tired GOSH’s face products before.

Those concealers look really nice. I’ve had really good luck with Gosh’s eyeliner, so these will definitely go on my list.
