This thread is related to another thread I just posted:
I wanted to see if there are any AA bees that have tried this and what was your experience with it matching your skin tone and if it worked as it should.
Pros and Cons….thanks for sharing!

I use the Maybelline BB cream in medium deep. I really like it but the color comes off a bit ash y in photos but my friend who has it in the ‘deep’ looks good in photos. I am a caramel/bronze co l or & often have this issue. You may want to use your favorite moisturizer & foundation together to make your own. Hope this helps.

I also use the maybelline in the “darkest” color I could find. I am a light brown, and it matches really well, but it’s ridiculous that there isn’t more of a choice for WOC

I’m using one by Smashbox right now. It’s a little pricy (I think $26), but I really like it. The color is dark (real descriptive, right?). I’ve been looking for a drugstore brand to try once this one is gone, but I haven’t found anything in the stores. what a PITA. Hopefully fashion fair gets on the BB train soon!

Ok, so update, I ordered a Miisha bb cream from amazon, too light! And I’m caramelish I guess.
Ended up getting THE Perfect bb cream from Sleek Makeup, they have a large variety of shades to fit women of color. Very pleasant surprise, kudos to them! I ordered mine from amazon and I’m very pleased. Skin does appear flawless, photographs great, you don’t need a lot and it feels very lightweight.
Just wanted to return and spread the word because good makeup is hard to find!
If anyone tries it please come back and share your thoughts/reviews.

@Happy Hopeful Bee: oh great! Thanks for this update. I JUST bought a new one…go figure! I bought Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in deep for $8.99 at Ulta yesterday because I figured that’s cheap enough just to try out. Turns out that so far, I think i’m liking it better than the Smashbox (which was actually $39!) because the Dream Fresh keeps my face matte throughout the whole day. Should have started with the 8.99 one! I’m going to look into this brand too, I just love makeup! Thanks for sharing!

@purpledaisies: Awesome! I’m glad the Maybelline worked for you, I almost tried it.
If you do try the Sleek make up bb cream let me know what you think.
