Estée Lauder Daywear Multi-Perfecting BB Creme SPF 35 in Light/Medium

I normally reach for a medium to high coverage foundation every morning, so most BB creams don't fit my needs. I'm always open to trying out new products, so I was ready test Estée Lauder's Daywear Multi-Perfecting BB Creme SPF 35 in Light/Medium* ($46 CAD/30 mL), and see if it could rival some of my favourite foundations!

This BB cream is packaged quite simply - a plain silver squeezy tube. This product has a very fruity/melon scent, that is a bit heavy, but it isn't noticeable after it's applied to my skin. This formula is thick, creamy, and quite hydrating. I take a pea sized amount, and apply it to my face with my fingers. I'm able to get light to medium coverage from this BB cream, which is good for days when I want a more natural look. If I want more coverage, I pair this BB Cream with a light coverage foundation over top.

If you have oily skin, you could definitely get away with skipping your moisturizer, as this BB cream is fairly hydrating on its' own. I love that this formula contains SPF 35, so you can skip your facial sunscreen when wearing this BB cream. Honestly, some mornings I'll reach for whatever product will check the most boxes with the least amount of effort, and this product does just that! 

This formula stays looking good for about 9 hours before it starts to fade/break down. The shade Light/Medium is a little bit too dark for me, but I can make it work when I blend it out. There are only 2 shades in this range, so there unfortunately won't be a shade for everyone.

If you enjoy a light to medium coverage base, then you might really like this BB Cream. I can definitely appreciate how great of a multi-tasking product this BB cream is, but I do still like a more high coverage base. I can see this being a great product to take on holiday, as it's quick & easy, light, and contains a high SPF. Do you prefer BB creams or traditional foundations?

    1. The SPF inclusion is huge! I wish all bb creams/foundations had SPF in them!

  2. Ouuu, this sounds promising! I'm a big fan of bb creams (even though I need a significant amount of coverage to actually even out my skin BUT WHATEVES), but a lot of BBs are far too sheer for my liking. Might have to grab a sample of this and hope I don't fall in love with it because it's out of my current budget right now!
