Beauty News & Reviews
Anyone who’s heard me blather about makeup will know that I adore Skin79 and will happily recommend the brand to anyone who’ll listen. BB Creams may seem faddy, but try out one of the beauties from this brand and you’ll quickly discover the route to skin that looks brighter, even, and natural in a flash. So after declaring my love for the Hot Pink and Gold BB Creams , I decided it was high time to sample more of the range and see what the differences are. So that’s where Skin 79 Diamond Prestige BB Cream steps in.
The product: These BB Creams are hugely generous, well packaged and durable. The Diamond Prestige BB Cream differs from the gold and pink versions in it’s slender baby pink bottle with a nice pump applicator.
Applications: This glides on like a dream, leaving a dewy finish that isn’t shiny but will work best on dry and combination skin. I wear this on its own and also mix it in with my normal foundation to keep it looking light and natural. It has a nice SPF as well which is always a plus in my book and the large bottle means this will last ages.
Result: I love this! I expected to, but was delighted that it lived up to my expectations. If anything, this is an even better match for my pale skin as it’s pinker in tone to the slightly greyer cast found in the Hot Pink version. To be fair, Skin79 BB Creams magically adjust after a few minutes but I preferred the pinker tone in this one. This cost me just €13 on EBay and honestly it really is harder to find better value for such an amazing product. I’d happily pay twice or three times as much for these products as they really offer a great result that the slew of recent BB Creams on the market fail to match. If you’re looking for a nice light base for summer to ensure good skin days, this is the way to go girls!
Pros: It’s a base that ensures good skin days and can be worn alone or mixed with foundation to get whatever coverage you’re after, it adapts to skin tone and has a decent SPF
Cons: I have a trusted seller I order from, but caution should always be taken when ordering products off EBay so I really wish this was in stores in Ireland
Would I buy again? Of course I would! I wish Skin79 would just start paying me to work for them!
