Thanks to the lovely Yasumi at, I’ve got my hands on more BB creams to try.

Evangalist BB Cream

Evangalist isn’t for me.. there are ashy tones to it that aren’t right for my skin tone and actually, I didn’t like the weight of it.. it felt as if my skin couldn’t breathe properly.

Skinfood Good Afternoon Honey Black Tea BB

This Skinfood one however is a much better fit for my olive skin tone: it blends in seamlessly although again, I was surprised at how heavy it feels when on the skin. They don’t actually look heavy, but do take some working in. I suspect that is the SPF that is weighing it down.

Addiction Primer

Addiction is one of the brands that BB fans adore. I did have a BB sample of this but I, er, squeezed it too hard and the consequences weren’t photograph-able! It was a gorgeous consistency, much lighter than the two above.

Lightness seems to be a theme with Addiction; this primer is absolutely lovely; featherweight on the skin and a lovely moisturising quality. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re doing an overseas shop.
