As you might be already aware, so far, I am blown away with almost all the products that I have picked up from Kiko Milano. Once again browsing at Kiko’s store at DLF Mall of India, I came across its BB Cream. I picked it up with little hopes that it would be any good but it was AMAZING! Priced at just INR 525/-.
The product arrives in a regular white tube, simple and convenient to use. It looks white when you squeeze it out, but it contains tiny capsules of tinted substance, which gives a slight tint when the cream is blended out and looks like the color shown on the packaging. I am always apprehensive with products that do that because they can sometimes just be way off the color that it claims to be.
This BB cream is available in only 5 shades namely –Light, natural, rose, medium, dark. I picked up shade 04, Medium to avoid taking any chances, and it was a perfect match!
I like the texture and the sheerness of it, although it reminds me more of a tinted moisturizer rather than a bb cream. It settles down instantly and beautifully evens out skin tone making my skin look polished without being too “made-up.”
On top of this BB cream, I like to throw on some concealer on the highest points of my face along with some mascara, bronzer and a bright lipstick.
The coverage is semi-medium, more like a natural coverage and is super lightweight. It blends seamlessly and the finish is just flawless. I wouldn’t say that it covered my acne spots and blemishes. It has SPF 15 which is great for the day time and it is extremely moisturizing, which means- A moisturizer, sunscreen and a tinted BB cream- All in One! A BB cream can also be used as a primer and this BB cream provides a perfect base for my makeup.
Another brilliant point is that I feel this is perfect for all skin types, from extremely oily to the most drying skintypes. The only sad part is its lasting power is not more than 4 hours.
To finish up i give this BB Cream a 8/10, the only thing i would improve is the longevity but to me this is a true WINNER!!
