Laneige BB Cushion

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $34

THE SKINNY: This is the best BB cream I've tried. That's saying a lot because I've been a devoted fan of Urban Decay's Naked Skin BB cream for years. But Laneige is better because it's even lighter on the skin, something that's really important now that summer is here.

This BB cream is very wet and glides onto the skin, correcting little lines and blemishes and leaving my skin with that "dewy" look we older girls crave. The coverage lasts all day, and I don't feel the product on my skin.

The sponge thing is a little weird. Honestly, I'd much rather have a lotion. But a lotion would never go so lightly. (So thanks, Ipsy, for putting a the sample in my bag.)

This product is SPF 50 and offers UVA and UVB protection. But don't think about that. I don't use nearly enough of the BB cream to get any sun protection benefits from it.

Your options are light, medium and dark. My skin is pretty fair, even in the summer, and I can wear either the light or the medium, depending on how much coverage I want. Medium, not surprising, seems to mask more.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: You can find Laniege BB Cushion at Target, among other retailers.
