When Korean BB Creams started taking the world by storm, I knew it was a matter of time before Western brands got in on the act. Well lookee here! Lancome is one of the first Western (high end department store) brands I know to have a BB Cream! Except they call it a BB Base. As reader Ivo pointed out Maybelline has a BB Base too.
The full name to give it its due is the Lancome UV Expert GN-Shield High Potency Active Protection BB Base SPF50 PA+++ High UVA PPD. Whew! Interested to try it? There’s a preview going on – details below.
I’m still test driving this one so a full review will come later. But I can tell you that whilst its not quite sufficient to act as full cover foundation, its a perfectly good sunblock with light tint. I’ll have more pictures for you in time to come.
If you’d like to try this yourselves (and be one of 3 lucky people to win it!) head down to MidValley Megamall for the roadshow and contest. Details are as follows:-
Venue: MidValley Megamall South Court
Date: April 2-4, 2010
Click Here: Contest Information
The good thing about heading on down to MidValley Megamall is that its a preview of this new product and the new Blanc Expert Mineral Loose Powder with White Sapphire Complex because apparently the products only goes on shelves in May 2010. So you get to be one of the first few to try it!
Nope I’m not going to jump out at you and yell “April Fool!” 😛
If you do win, please come and share your thoughts on this cream with us! We are all ears! 😀
