Review: BB creams are all the rage right now and in my opinion Estee Lauder's products are some of the best on the market. Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup is no exception. The first BB cream to be released by Estee Lauder is just beautiful, in my opinion needing only a little room for improvement. Let's start with the colour range: All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup comes in six shades ideal for most skin types but it is important to know they are pink-based. What does this mean to you? Well most makeup artists tend to prefer yellow-based foundations because they appear more natural on the skin whereas pink-based foundations can make skin appear dull, tired and dare I say sick. Personally I too avoid pink based foundations from my own personal experience and as my skin throws warm tones I was left with a beautiful foundation that failed to flawlessly match my skin tone. Whilst only I would have probably been the only one to notice this, I was sure to press a yellow-based powder over the foundation to set the look and colour correct the application.
BB Moisture Makeup really does hydrate skin thanks to its lovely fluid formula which blends over skin with ease and sets nicely to a satin finish and is perfect for those seeking light to medium coverage. Although I don't need to cover my skin, on work days I like to achieve a medium/full coverage. All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup is best suited to a medium coverage at most and I discovered that by adding more can make this BB cream ball up and separate. The formula lasts all day long but requires a touch up though the day to ensure skin stays looking fresh and its scent is soft, subtle and barely there. If All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup was to appear in yellow-based shades and offered fuller coverage then I would purchase it without hesitation, butif you are not as picky with your foundation/BB creams I would certainly still recommend and rate it highly - I am just choosy with foundation because to me a good base is everything. Skin certainly feels hydrated through ongoing wear of this product but I still urge you to use a skincare routine as you would. All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup receives a round of applause for offering an SPF 30+ coverage because this is a must-have attribute for health-conscious women and for offering a varied range of shades for a good majority of skin tones. From fair to dark, Estee Lauder is known for embracing cultural diversity whereas many brands only offer 2-3 shades in a BB cream.
Tip: Avoid layering this product for fuller coverage as it can ball up.
