BB Creams...Useful or overhyped?

I've tried a couple of beauty balm (BB) creams and I've come to the conclusion that I'm over it. I don't feel like it's doing anything & I want more coverage (I'm a but red in the cheeks). Even Too Faced's new air buffed BB creme is so-so. Not enough coverage even though it says full coverage. Now I hear there's Color Correction/Control (CC) cream. For more info on CC creams, click this link. Knowing me, I'll probably buy one, but not to use as my everything. Perhaps under foundation. I've been told to focus on one thing & do it well. Maybe that really holds true for makeup/skin care too. But maybe I'm biased. I love my Caudalie Beauty Elixir (so refreshing!) & my Ole Hendrickson Truth Serum. So maybe I just need to buy a good tinted moisturizer and I'll have my weekend beauty routine. We'll see how it goes.

On a side note: I will be buying Murad's Redness Therapy Moisturizer soon & will review that as well. I really want the gel, but after making a hefty purchase at Sephora this month (made VIB already!), like my skin, I need to calm it down.

So while I'm not into the BB creams, I do like what I think BB should stand for: Be Be Beautiful.

Until next time...
