So I have been patiently waiting for my AJ Crimson BB Cream to come in. If you guys don’t know who AJ Crimson is he is a celebrity makeup artist based out of Los Angeles but travels nationwide. Btw, one of the sweetest and most humble makeup artist I have ever met!
So he launched a new creme foundation and BB cream line for all skin types and all races which was already intriguing.But I also follow him on instagram: @Ajcrimson and came across his before and afters of the BB creme and I was in disbelief. There was no way in the world this BB cream was making skin look like this without any other concealer. Everyone’s skin had coverage and it was dewey and glowed like natural skin. It was absolutely amazing. And being the product junkie that I am I had to give this BB cream a try! On top of that I go to the website and it is back ordered, this must be good stuff.
So I patiently waited and received my package on Monday! I was way excited to try it. Usually, I play with makeup right when I get it but I was thinking if it is as bomb as it seems I want to save it for a day when i’m going out.
So here is the AJ Crimson BB Cream in #3. If comparing to MAC shades it would be comparable to it says NC35 but i’m thinking more of a range from NC40,NC42 or NC44 in studio fix fluid. And with Makeup For Ever HD foundation it says 170. The best part about it is it’s like any other bb cream, your moisturizer, primer, and foundation in one, and a little goes an extremely long way.
Here is my before and after. I am really blessed with pretty good skin, but I do have some imperfections and occasional dark circles. I used absolutely nothing on my face but the AJ Crimson in BB creme #3- meaning no concealers or highlighters. I did of course use eyeshadow, brows, eyeliner, mascara and blush on the after photo. Also no filters were used in this photo either.
What do you guys think about the before and after?
I am extremely pleased with the product it evens me out with one product, its not heavy on the skin! Best of all for you who rush in the morning this is all you need! Just this BB cream and you are good to go! You can currently preorder your shade on ajcrimson.myshopify.com the BB cream is currently on sale for $20 and worth every penny.
Thank you AJ for launching such an amazing product for all ethnicities, because we all know it can be a struggle finding a BB cream for a darker skin tone!
I am glam.
I am gluttony.
