Lately, I’ve been using the Black Radiance BB cream in Honey Amber which I purchased at Walmart for $5.99 (being mindful that you must find this product at “demographically placed” meaning that is product is only placed in areas with a high black population). This has a light coverage, but felt noticeable on the skin.
When initially putting this on with a blending brush, it felt a bit heavy compared to my usually foundations (Bobbi Brown stick foundation in Golden Almond 6.75). When putting this on with my Real Techniques Complexion sponge, it felt lighter and more breathable (which I have been loving recently!) As a primer, I used Boscia T zone Treament (be sure to check out my review here). To set my face, the translucent loose powder by Sasha Cosmetics.
Is it worth it or nah?
Overall, I like that there is a company creating an array of BB creams for people with deeper skin tones (normally there is only 1-2 shades for brown girls, IF there is any deep shades at all). Like most bb creams, this works great if you are only looking light coverage to even out skin, but you’ll need a concealer if you have more areas that need coverage.
