Swatch: Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream

Another month, another BB cream release.  Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream will be released in May, and they're a little late to the party - Clinique (amongst other brands) are shortly releasing CC creams.  

Anyway, this one combines Clarins skincare benefits with SPF25 and a semi-matte finish which provides a light but buildable coverage, available in three shades.

This, surprisingly, is the lightest shade.  It's not really very light.  

Blended out, you can tell that this base product is way too deep for my pale and cool skin.  If you're a pale and pasty lady, you'll probably find Clarins BB cream a no go as it's just too deep, and too warm.  The finish is rather nice, though - it's not so matte it looks chalky, but it's not too dewy and wet either.  It sets down well on the skin and leaves a velvety feeling to the skin.

If your skin is a little less fair than mine and you're intrigued by Clarins entry to the BB market, you'll find this on counter and online in May.  It'll cost £28.
