Spotted at the Drugstore...Iman BB Cream!

*I wrote this post in January, Blogger decided to repost it again (shrugs). Check out the review below this post. *

I made my biweekly visit to Walgreen's, which happens to be a store that I can never go in and buy one item, mainly because I always browse their makeup aisle...they always have brands that you don't normally see in drugstores. While browsing, I saw the new Iman BB creams for women of color! I read that Iman was going to launch her BB creams soon, I just didn't know when.

I was so happy to see the display. I must have stayed in front of this display for at least 10 minutes reading the display and looking at the shades. The cream comes in 6 shades, while browsing; I noticed the smaller bottles on the right, they are sample colors of the BB creams to swatch, which makes choosing your shade so convenient! I wished all makeup displays could do the same thing. I swatched all of the colors just to be sure until I found my right match.

Iman BB Cream Review (Detailed)

I purchased the Iman BB cream some months ago and now after wearing it for a while, I can give my full review on the cream. Here goes...

*For those that don't know, BB creams are a multi functioning product that can prime, moisturize, even skin and provide SPF. If you find a BB cream with the right coverage it can replace your foundation or concealer and it cuts down the amount of time you spend on making up your face.*

Shopping from my Stash...Mac Hibiscus Lipstick

I've noticed that I collect so much makeup and I don't come close to wearing all of it, so; I put myself on a makeup no buy and I've been shopping from my stash. In my stash, I've rediscovered some products and wondered why I don't wear them more often.

Today, I wore the Mac Hibiscus lipstick to work, it came out with the Mac Surf Baby collection in 2011. It's a beautiful bright orange coral and it pairs well with a chestnut lip liner. Since the seasons are about to change, I'm going to pull this out and wear it more often.








PS. I've been loving BB creams, I'm wearing the Iman BB cream in this picture...the full review is coming in the next few days.
