My Favorite BB & CC Creams

In my recent video, Everyday Natural Makeup Tutorial, I talked about my love for BB and CC creams.  I asked if y’all would want to see a video about different BB and CC creams that are currently available, and which ones I personally love, and the response was an overwhelming yes!  I filmed my Favorite BB & CC Creams + First Impressions.


I wanted to put all of the products I talked about in this video in one place for you to see.  Several of these products are brand new to me before this video, so I’m giving you my unbiased first impression.

One mistake I’d like to point out on my behalf is regarding the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion.  I mistakenly assumed it was a BB product because of the cushion design, which I was (obviously) incorrect about.  It is actually a sheer to medium coverage foundation.  This explains my explanation about heavy coverage/application.  Now knowing that it is a foundation, I’m even less fond of this particular foundation because of the application method.  I find that the sponge just pushes around the product.  I personally would apply this foundation with a damp beautyblender.  Just my two cents!  Also, I’d like to clarify, I’m normally a huge fan of L’Oreal products so this is just one product of theirs that isn’t my absolute favorite.

    I love your videos! Should I apply BB then CC or visa versa?

      Thanks Laurie! I think you’re biased. 🙂
      Just use one of the other, if you want blemish help, go for BB but if you want color correcting, go for CC. Personally, I think you’ll LOVE the It Cosmetics CC cream!

    I was just thinking that maybe I should try to get a BB cream (I don’t wear makeup, but I am in a BUNCH of weddings next year and need to wear stuff to be a bridesmaid!), because I had a friend tell me they were a good starting point. I had no idea where to start and BAM! you uploaded this. Now, I have a starting place. Thank you so much, and have a beautiful day:)

    Hey Angela! I have a hard time finding foundation that looks good on my skin and lasts- my skin is kind of a diva! I watched a video of yours a while back and decided to try the laneige bb cushion and it’s the best product I’ve found. I LOVE it! So thanks for recommending it. I was just wondering if you’ve noticed it doesn’t seem to be carried anywhere anymore? Target doesn’t have it and online has a few different ones (Pore Control) with different colors. Do you know if the pore control would be comparable to the original? Especially for someone who doesn’t have large pores.

      I’m sad to say that Laneige is no longer carried at Target, BUT it is carried on Amazon and now at Sephora! I believe that they now have more skin tones available at Sephora, but don’t quote me on that. I haven’t tried the Pore Control yet, so if you beat me to testing it, please let me know your thoughts! 🙂

    Great video! I use the Dr. Jart+ BB Cream and even though I love it, I still have some issues with redness around my nose and chin. After your review, I definitely want to try the it Cosmetics CC Cream.

      Let me know if you try the It Cosmetics CC and what you think!

    Laneige was the first one I bought as well after I saw you post about it and I loved it!! However, I would actually run out of it so fast that it seemed expensive to me for refilling. I use this one now from Amazon which to me seems the same as Laneige, though I’d be curious to get your take on it if you try it. It’s the Misha Magic Cushion and its only $13

      I haven’t tried the Misha brand yet! I’m glad you found a dupe you like! 🙂

    Hi Angela! I’m so excited about this video! I have been practicing techniques I’ve learned in your videos this summer, and my hubby has noticed the improvements in my application. I’ve bought several products you’ve recommended and have been delighted.

    Last week a friend introduced me to Limelight by Alcone Foundation. WOW. I have never felt a product like this be so clean and provide such incredible coverage. My husband was even floored by how my skin felt like no makeup skin but looked radiant. Have you tested any of the products from this line? It seemed like something you would love!
