NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm

I purchased NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm about 1 year ago. It looks like the BB Cream is still good for use. It doesn’t have a smell or feel tacky. I decided to give it a go again. Why?? As I was using my elf Flawless Finish Foundation without a primer, the foundation looked dry and accentuated fine lines and wrinkles on my skin. I could see patches of my skin care products (that I applied to my skin, that I let soak in) balling up. That simply means the skin care + foundation was rolling off of my face! Devastating! :'(

What NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm looks like

I realized I still have a BB Cream sitting around untouched. Lo and behold, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm to the rescue! For some odd reason, it worked this time. I didn’t use it as a BB Cream. I used it as a makeup primer only. The tint to this BB Cream was completely useless. It doesn’t cover anything on the skin, but I didn’t care. I wanted to see if it worked as a primer or not with my new foundation — elf Flawless Finish Foundation.

What I did was follow my morning regimen, let my skin care products soak into my skin, apply NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, then apply my elf Flawless Finish Foundation. IT WORKED. The foundation looked smooth, natural, and matte. I’ve been doing this for three days straight to see if my skin will react negatively or not. So far, no breakouts and no signs of irritation. My skin looks good. My makeup looks flawless! I love how my makeup looks sooo natural. With the elf Flawless Finish Foundation, the NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm worked.

I’m glad I gave NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm a second chance. I will continue to use it as my primer if it doesn’t break me out. Have you used NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm before? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!

elf Aqua Beauty Blush & Bronzer

I have another blush palette! I’ve been using it (as you can see, lol). I chose this palette because it was on sale, haha. But also, I needed darker colors. I was there at the right time. 😉 The other one I have from elf is…

The colors in the second palette shown look very pretty, especially the color on the left. It’s a peachy shade that looks really natural on my cheeks. It’s subtle but gives my cheeks a pop of color. They’re nice, but I wanted something more bold. I love changing up my colors one day to the next. It makes things more exciting and fun.

I really like elf blushes and bronzers. They’re in a portable compact that’s easy to open and use. The colors compliment each other very well. They work. It’s pigmented enough and shows up on my skin. Works just the same or even better compared to more expensive blushes and bronzers. I would repurchase in the future. 🙂

Have you used elf blushes or bronzers? Did they work for you?

Love, Jen
