I thought this would be a fun segment to add..."MVP" or my "Most Valuable Product" within a category. Today's MVP is my favorite BB Cream of all the BB Creams, which is alot, because they are everywhere. This insanely popular product genre is like a tinted moisturizer on steroids. It covers oh-so subtly, evens skintone, contains spf, includes primer, etc. Basically, you need a BB cream in your life. So CC the one I've dubbed most valuable below.
Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream
Shocked it is a drugstore find? Me too. I've tried several BB creams (so many I thought about doing a post similar to the Moroccan Manes one here); however, the high ones haven't compared to this cheap treat. My shade, Medium, is a perfect match and it covers without masking...does that make sense? If you're looking for medium-to-full coverage, a BB Cream simply won't do that. Instead, check out the newest wave of CC Creams or this Stila liquid foundation with luminizing qualities.
What I really like about Maybelline's formula is that it is oil-free. It also gives you a nice, dewy look without the obviousness (like Garnier's version does...yuck). And the color, as I mentioned above, blends better with my skintone than Smashbox's BB cream. According to the Maybelling website, their Beauty Balm combines eight steps into one. And I think this product performs all eight successfully.
Have you tried Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream? Or if you haven't, what BB Cream do you use?

PS- Here's a cute little pic of what's "tray trending" at my house right now...haha. Tray trending is something I literally just came up with to be cute; it's simply what I have on our living room tray. I added this last minute because I received Lauren Conrad's new book, "Beauty", from an Anonymous Blog Buddy. How awesome is that! I really appreciate it and can't wait to see what's inside. Below that is Madewell's latest lookbook, which is always fashion-inspiring. And in the left corner is my favorite line of Fall candles right now...it's called "Autumn Harvest" and is from Target. Cheap, lasts a long time, and smells amazing! Okay bye for real.
