Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream and Kiss Aqua Beauty Balm Make a Good Pair

KISS New York Aqua BB Balm in Light to Medium ($12.00, found at many beauty supply stores): I bought the KISS New York Aqua BB Balm after chatting with makeup artist Danessa Myricks at The Makeup Show LA. She’s the makeup artist brought on consult on the new products. She told me to try it out because I might the medium coverage since I love foundation so much. She was right! First, let me say that I bought the wrong color. The beauty supply store did not have any samples and I went by the color indicator on the bottle. The color indicators run dark so the color I purchased was too light so I can wear it with a bronzer and don’t take it to my forehead. But I do want to point out a couple of things; it mixes well with my other BB Cream and they do carry darker shades.I didn’t keep the box with the ingredients but it feels great! I really need to hunt down the ingredients because after wearing it for a couple of weeks I saw an improvement in my skin’s texture, less breakouts, and my tone was more even. It did a fair job at controlling the oil, I was able to get through have the day without any problems and it doesn’t free oily at all.
Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream ($5.99, found at most mass market retailers and drugstores): I saw @0fficerNesh wearing this while hanging out one day and had to have it. It had a natural semi-matte finish and was a perfect match on her. For reference, she’s only half a shade darker, and this was the lightest shade from the color range. If I recall they have 4-5 shades in this collection. This formula has sunscreen and is oil-free but somehow feels like a really good tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. I still love it just as much KISS but in a different way. By mid-day I notice a small amount of shine but nothing too much to handle. I think out of the two of these you’ll find one that its your needs.
C-ray of Sunlight Beauty blended the two products as well and even listed Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream as her January Favorites
