i've heard some good things about the recently released BB Cream by Estée Lauder - the Cyber White Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme Multi Action Formula - and bought some 5ml-samples of it on ebay to try.
it has an spf of 35 and a beautiful fresh scent that lingers around for a few minutes until it fades. the texture is creamy and fine, it only comes in one shade which is a relatively light beige with pink undertones. i'd say it would match and NC/NW 15-20, which is great for everybody who can't use the Estée Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint Release or the Origins VitaZing (review) because they are too dark for them.
i apply it with my fingers, it blends out really easily and non-streaky. it gives just a very sheer coverage (comparable to MAC Face and Body Foundation or Make Up For Ever Face&Body Foundation) but brightens and evens out the complexion. it's perfect for people who already have a good skin but struggle with slight uneven pigmentation or redness, since this product won't cover up blemishes and dark marks. with a mineral powder or compact foundation dusted over it, the coverage is comparable to a normal foundation.
it has a satiny and very radiant finish without too much sheen or any shimmer/pearl. it makes my skin look soft and fresh and really beautiful, but without looking as if i wear a foundation. it feels very moisturising and lightweight. i only need some under eye concealer and this and i'm good to go, it's such an effortless product.
it also lasts well on me (about 6-7 hours) without becoming greasy, oxidising or loosing coverage although i have quite an oily skin.
i'm loving it so much that i have already bought the full size of it. the full size tube of 30ml costs about 55$ so it's much more expensive than the regular BB Creams you can get off ebay, but it's also far better than the ones i've tried so far so it's worth it for me.
from germany, you can buy it on ebay or sasa.com, for example.
