The Deborah Milano 5 in 1 BB Cream is easily the most Bad-Ass BB Cream of the lot, in terms of packaging atleast. If Batman wanted smoother skin, this sleek, glossy black and gold tube would be stashed away in his Bat Mobile somewhere ! In comparison to the cutesy packaging of Maybelline, and the somewhat boring packaging of Garnier, Deborah Milano definitely seems to be saying “Im sexy and i know it” .
“5-in-1 BB CREAM, a skin perfecting, all-in-one foundation with a multi-performance formula:
1. first it smoothes and primes skin;
2. Then it conceals and minimises imperfections;
3. Evens out skin tone,
4. Moisturises and nourishes skin,
5. and protects it against UV radiation and pollution.
Featuring a multi-function formula, beauty balm offers skin a host of benefits plus perfect skin in just one product. Hypoallergenic*, with a delicate violet scent.
SPF20 for effective protection from photoageing.”
First things first- if coverage of BB Creams have dissapointed you so far, then Deborah Milano will definitely not dissapoint. It is easily the highest coverage amongst all that iv tried, and gives you an even complexion, and does minimise imperfections and smoothens open pores just like it claims.
Secondly, it is a slightly thick liquid- but what i love about it is that it blends with just a few swipes of your skin. It just feels so soft, and blendable like a mousse- the texture is really nice. Having said that, you don’t get that ‘light as a feather feel’ that you get with Garnier
Thirdly, this is not a dewy finish BB Cream. This finishes matte- a nice, good coverage, polished matte but matte nonetheless.
Fourthly , as is my problem with most BB Creams this is not a great moisturising cream if you have dry skin specially. When you first apply it you feel like its really the BB Cream of your dreams , but soon after you realise this really does not moisturize as much as you need at all- you still see dry patches . Definitely need moisturiser underneath.
Lastly, if you have oily skin, you definitely will absolutely love this- it will give you good coverage and keep you shine and oil free all day with a nice matte finish
Left: Without Anything, Right: With Deborah 5 in 1 BB Cream
Product:4/5, Coverage: 4.5/5, Texture: 4/5, Moisture: 3/5, Longevity:4/5 ,
Price: Rs 350
Shades: Shade # 2 is what i use but its just a lil bit dark for me.
Recommendation: The Deborah Milano BB Cream has good solid coverage, makes skin look smoother and softer and keeps you shine and oil free all day. It is not moisturizing enough for dry skin like mine and i definitely need a moisturizer underneath , but if you are someone with oily skin and needs coverage you may like this . If you are a dewy skin fan, you may want to skip this as this is completely matte. I think of it more of like a light foundation than a Cream per se. Have to put a disclaimer- it does feel a tad bit heavier on the skin than other BB Creams.
