Testing Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream
The BB Cream testers arrived the other week at the salon and we have all been excited to have a try.
I used BB5 with smooth affair underneath. So I began by applying a generous pea size of Smooth Affair (Facial primer and brighter) which feels lovely on the skin and give a really silky smooth finish, perfect to apply foundation to the top. Next I applied the BB5 again a generous pea size amount, maybe a little to generous, as I was a bit caked on the first attempt. On the second application I used a lot less BB5, I did find it a little sticky to apply and does take a bit of working in, I used my Jane Iredale blending brush which did help.
The rep at Jane Iredale had told us that it takes a few minutes for the colour to adjust, and at first it was very pale but after a few minutes it did get darker and was a lovely colour. The finish is a dewy full coverage. Personally I probably wouldn’t buy a BB cream for everyday because I felt it was to heavy coverage for myself, so I will be sticking with my Jane Iredale Dream Tint, and Pressed Base.
