Kao Sofina Primavista Ange Liquid Foundation UV Long Keep Spring Summer 2013 Base Makeup 1

.

I rarely use liquid foundations as they tend not to suit my oily skin. However, I got curious about Primavista Ange Liquid Foundation UV (Long Keep) and I decided to try it mainly for research purposes.

(For a brief profile on Primavista Ange, read my review of the line’s Powder Foundation UV (Long Keep). I have also reviewed Long Keep Base UV, possibly the line’s most popular product).

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation 1

.

Launched in 2008, Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation was originally formulated to be used after cosmetic surgeries and cosmetic procedures. It is claimed to provide a natural, complete, and breathable coverage. In a way, the original purpose of this product is similar to that of a B. B. cream. (The product is not claimed to be or marketed as one, and I will go back to this later on.)

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-in-One B. B. Cream SPF 15 Light 1

.

Over the years, one of the questions that I have been asked the most by my readers is “Have you tried B. B. creams?”

Personally, B. B. creams don’t fit in with my daily skincare/makeup routine. Currently, when I don’t wear makeup, my daytime routine ends with Olay’s Complete Care Daily Sensitive UV Fluid SPF 15. When I do want coverage, I wear ZA’s Two-Way Foundation on top of the Olay moisturizer. Generally, I prefer pigmented products for face, eyes, and cheeks to be powder-based. (Powder foundations suit my sebaceous skin a lot more, and I find powder eyeshadows (especially those from Japanese lines) and blushers a lot easier to work with. Also, I very rarely wear primers.) Therefore, I haven’t been tempted to purchase a B. B. cream.

However, today, I am taking you through the basics of B. B. creams and I will be reviewing Garnier‘s Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-in-One B. B. Cream.
