My top 3 BB Creams of the Summer!!

Howdy Y'all and Happy 4th!!

This summer has been really hot. With the weather so gross I really don't like wearing a lot of heavy makeup on my face. I've tried some of the new drugstore BB Creams and I have to say I love them.

Coming in at number 3 I have to go with Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream.

I picked up this BB cream because I was having a really bad breakout and this has a 2% Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment. I was hoping it would help with my zits. It also says its an 8-in-1 skin perfeector.
1. Clears acne
2. Conceals imperfections
3. Minimizes the look of pores
4. Reduces the appearance of redness
5. Adjusts to skin tone
6. Hydrates and smoothes
7. Enhances and clarifies
8. 0% oils and lightweight feel
I used this one day and I loved how easily it went on. It blended beautifully into the skin without feeling heavy or sticky. It also matches really well with my skin tone. The coverage is light to medium and you can still see some imperfections. The wear is good but by the end of the day you look a little oily. The best part the next morning I got up and my face looked better. So happy! 

Coming in at number 2 is the NYC BB Creme. 

I saw this all over Instagram and had to try it out for my self. This claims to be a 5-in-1 skin perfector. 
1. Helps protect skin
2. Pore minimizer
3. Erase skin imperfections, minimize fine lines
4. Smooths skin
5. Brightens skin for a luminous and natural looking makeup

I really like the feel of this on my face. I put it on and my face looked amazing. It has a medium coverage but you can build it up a little. I didn't think this was going to match my face but the color is actually pretty darn close. You can still see some imperfections but it gives your face a beautiful finish that really does give you a natural looking makeup look. It has great wear through out the day and holds up well in the heat. I love this stuff!

For my number 1 choice it has to be Rimmel Matte BB Cream

I didn't like the regular Rimmel BB Cream because it made my face look like a huge oily mess. This one says "MATTE" so of course I had to see if it held up. This one is a 9-in-1 skin perfecting super makeup. 
1. Minimizes the appearance of pores
2. Evens skin tone
3. Mattifies 
4. Controls shine all day
5. Smoothes 
6. Soothes 
7. Conceals dark circles
8. Helps prevent blemishes
9. Gives all day coverage

First off this formula is a bit thicker than the others and it has a medium to full coverage finish. However even though it is thicker it feels very light on the skin almost like you not wearing anything. The color is even great. This does a wonderful job of hiding all your imperfections. When they say "MATTE" they mean it. I can put this on early in the morning and at night when I am ready to take it off my face still looks amazing and shine free. This is also the only one of the three that has SPF. Its only 15 SPF but at least it has it.

Let me know what some of your favorite BB Creams are!!

Thank you for reading and until nest time!!!

Don't forget to check out my YouTube channel:


  1. Do you find these better to wear than foundations? I really want to try some but I like the coverage of a foundation :)


    1. They don't have the coverage of a foundation. They are lighter but the Rimmel one comes pretty close to giving me a foundation type finish. I love it well I love all three just for different reasons. Thanks for reading!!

  2. These sound lovely! I think out of the three I would like to try the NYC BB Cream as the description fits what I'm looking for..pore and wrinkle minimizer.
    Nice review!
