Pink Sugar's BB Cream may be the perfect base for the SummerFriday, April 29, 2016
For someone who has to say a lot about beauty, I sure have been MIA from blogging for a while. Weeks leading up to our Japan trip last week, it was a crazy month for me because we had to get out yaya's papers in order so that she will be able to join us in Japan. Otherwise, Henri will have to be left home if we cannot travel without her. I am dependent on her to be quite honest. I am not ashamed to admit it!
So anyway, it being crazy hot this summer here in Manila, I have been on the constant look out for the perfect foundation to use during the summer because I have found some of my foundations to melt off my face faster than I can say SUMMER. You will find me posting a lot of foundation posts because I have so many here at home and finding the right one for this crazy humidity and heat is like trying to find the right boyfriend. I know I said that about mascara before, but I find it harder to find foundation now than mascaras.

Before anything else, what I love about Pink Sugar's BB Cream is that they cover a whole lot of shades that cater to the Filipina skin tone. Some women like me suffer from a confused skin tone, I have both yellow and pink tones so choosing the perfect shade for me is always a pain. So at the LAUNCH OF PINK SUGAR, we were told that they had shades that address this kind of skin tone issue.
This BB Cream hydrated my flaky cheeks, and it seemed to have controlled my oily nose. It didn't over oil as much all throughout the day which is always good. I have the matching concealer too but I try not to use too much concealer this summer. It just weighs my skin down! I save those for the cooler months.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium, and put everything else on my face to complete my makeup look, the BB Cream started to blend into my skin really well. It really gave my skin a nice glowing finish that does not feel too thick on the face, or too sticky.
I would say this BB Cream can act as a liquid foundation with added benefits because of the consistency and the coverage. I love using it everyday, even when I go to the grocery. I love mixing it with my day moisturizer so that it will set as a tinted moisturizer and the coverage is just so pretty.
Overall? I would give this BB Cream a 5-star! I guess you can quote me saying that I would recommend this base as the perfect one to use in the summer. You can use it sparsely and still get the right amount of coverage. It's lightweight, and it has an ample amount of SPF to keep you protected! It has skin care too! And because the humidity makes us skip the moisturizer, you can rely on this product to include everything you need for the summer: skin care, spot corrector, coverage, SPF and sun protection too!
