CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream – Review, Swatches & Photos

 

 

CoverGirl is releasing a new matte BB Cream formulated specifically fry oily skin.  This multi-tasking, lightweight cream is part primer, part foundation and part shine-free protection.  It’s oil free, doesn’t clog pores and provides the perfect amount of coverage to even skin tone, hide blemishes and keep you shine free all day.

I am probably not the best person to say how this BB Cream controls oil since my skin is dry as a desert, but I have been using it on a daily basis and I have to say I really like it. That’s saying something since I absolutely HATE BB Creams. My issue with BB Creams is they simply don’t provide full coverage but this one is pretty decent in the coverage department. It has almost the same  level of coverage as a foundation except it much more lightweight. The staying power is pretty decent, it doesn’t last as long as a foundation but it’s better than most BB Creams.

Overall this is one of the better BB Creams I have tried so far. I love the coverage it provides while still feeling lightweight. Although I do love it I would still always chose a foundation over a BB Cream simply because of the staying power a good foundation has.

  • Hmm….it’s strange that a BB cream doesn’t have SPF, usually they have pretty good ones which is why I prefer BB creams to foundations.

    • I agree I know most BB Creams do have SPF. Most of the foundations I use have SPF so I do prefer foundations either way.

  • I don’t really like BB cream either but this one sounds pretty good… I have really dry skin myself and I need good coverage too xox

    • Yes I prefer foundations BB Creams are just to light for me. I actually prefer heavy coverage.

  • Sounds like a good product too bad we dont have cover girl here in msia.. Thank you fro sharing tho..

    Keep in touch ya. 🙂

    I never any foundation from Covergirl now I might have to see if this one will work for me it does have a nice selection of colors.

    • It’s worth checking out if you like BB Creams.

  • Glad to hear about this new option for those with oily skin for a bb cream

    • It’s definitely worth checking out.

  • I’m not a fan of BB creams but might have to check this one out because of your review. Great post!

    • Me too I personally don’t like them this one was better than most I have tried.

    • Hmm I thought CoverGirl was available in the UK.

      • Oh maybe it is then and I just hadn’t seen it, will have to investigate 😀

        • I was just looking around online and it is odd that Covergirl doesn’t seem to have a UK site.

          • No you are right I just checked too and you can only buy from a chemist company that I had never heard of or Ebay and it’s so expensive on eBay. Maybe they will launch in the future as they seem like a great brand. x

  • Hi there, I’ve always wanted to try out something from the brand but they aren’t available where I live! l have been lately also loving BBs , and it does sound great for the summer!

    Have a great Friday!

    • It’s good better than most BB Creams I have tried. I would still prefer a foundation though.

  • I want to like BB creams, but I always go back to foundation. This BB cream does sound pretty good though 🙂

    • I feel the same way. I will always prefer foundations to me they give a more polished look.

  • I really like that is affordable and matte! Makes for the perfect everyday bb cream 🙂

  • This sounds like a great BB Cream! As someone with oily skin, I’m excited that more companies are catering to my skin type because before, I felt the selection was very limited, especially with drugstore brands! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

  • if for oily skin interest me try it, as my the BB creams I taken out of trouble in my everyday.

  • So precise and detailed thanks!

  • I haven’t used a BB cream in a long time and I don’t even currently have one in my collection. I have been hearing good tings about this one too and it sounds interesting since it works with your dry skin and I’m combo/dry. I will check it out next time I’m at my drugstore. Too bad there isn’t more shade selection. x

    • I still personally prefer a foundation over a BB Cream but this one is pretty decent.

  • This seems quite good for a bb cream, shade selection could have been better but otherwise it sounds great…
