   Fair & Lovely introduced their new BB Cream to a few of us lucky ladies at a glamorous event held at the Novotel, Juhu a couple of days ago. I’m reviewing Fair & Lovely BB Cream and creating a unique look, my "First day at work" look that I created using the Fair & Lovely BB Cream as a base for my makeup.

   The Fair & Lovely BB Cream comes packed in a rose-gold and white colored outer box on which all the pertinent information is printed. The product comes in a slender, attractive tube with a similar color scheme as the outer box and is fitted with a sturdy white colored flip cap. It is travel friendly and leak proof.
   The cream has a good consistency, neither too thick nor too thin, and has a mild pleasant scent to it. It is available in a single rose-gold tinted shade which suits fair to dusky skin tones but not so much for people with darker shades of skin. A small amount of the cream is enough to see visible change in complexion to give a much more even and uniform, healthier and fresher looking skin. It gives a light coverage against blemishes, pigmentation spots and marks, hiding lighter ones but isn't too effective against the more prominent ones. It feels very light on the skin, blending easily with the skin without forming an artificial looking cast to give a matte finish. It works well for people with combination to oily skin type without use of any other adjuvant skincare product but those with dry skin might experience flakiness which would need the use of a moisturizer. It does not cause my face to get oily or the skin to break out. Another plus is that it gives protection against UV rays with its SPF 15.
   Also, Fair & Lovely BB cream much like their other products are widely available in India and are pretty cost effective as well.

Product Review - Fair & Lovely BB Cream

   My "First day at work" look incorporating the Fair & Lovely BB Cream as a base for subtle natural looking makeup consists of a single thin stroke of eyeliner, oodles of mascara, a rosy tint of blush and a lipstick in a neutral shade. Would stick to the basic colors for the apparel with a blue top paired with a black skirt and accessorized with a broad brown belt to complete the look.
