My close friend, Susan Thompson, has recently expanded her eponymously named makeup up line, and it has everything that a makeup enthusiast could ever dream of having!
Susan Thompson Cosmetics BB Cream is a described as part skincare, part makeup. It is hydrating and offers sheer radiant coverage. It produces a very natural, no makeup look, and yet it perfects skin tone for a flawless finish. The soft focus particles capture the light effortlessly, and soften the appearance of pores and fine lines.
I chose Light since it was the closest to my skin color, and while it swatches as a warmer yellow-based shade– once it warms up with my body chemistry it matches perfectly despite the fact that I have cool-toned skin.
The texture of the BB Cream is light, silky and creamy, and it glides across the skin effortlessly. It never settles into, or accentuates fine lines or pores, and it leaves skin luminous and hydrated. Unlike many products that contain soft focus particles, the effect is very subtle and natural– rather than glittery and unnatural.
While this is certainly in the category of a BB Cream, it clearly leans closer to the finish of a tinted moisturizer than to that of a full-coverage foundation, and while it is more sheer than opaque it does offer some buildable coverage.
I am also quite impressed that once applied it stays put all day on my normal to combination skin, and the only time that I need to touch up is when I reapply sunscreen.
