Avon Nutra Effects BB Cream Matte SPF15

4/27/2016



I'm a natural makeup kinda girl on everyday basis, so BB creams and any kind of tinted moisturizers now known under alphabet letters are my go-to base option. I like 'em comfortable, of medium coverage (which I can oomph up with concealer if needed), non-oxidizing, with decent SPF and not too shiny as I like to add pops of highlight by my own hands, thank you very much.

Avon Nutra Effects BB Cream Matte SPF15 (30ml 7.90€), in my head, is everything the initial Garnier BB cream was supposed to be - there's no cakey texture, it's not too thick or heavy, it doesn't oxidize and it's not shiny! The only thing in common they may have is a poor color range but it's really inexpensive so, if you can fit into these two humble shades - get in and enjoy the ride!

Packaging is simple, nothing to write home about - soft, white tube with orange lettering. This BB cream is scented but it doesn't translate to the skin as much and, for some reason, the scent reminds me of TTA perfume (personal fave). The texture is a bit thick but not greasy as it seems like a cream/ airy mousse combo. It glides perfectly over the skin, blurring the majority of imperfections whilst still keeping things fresh. There's no slippy silicone feel, stickiness or heaviness.

I'm loving the finish of this one - it feels and looks like satin, not being too matte. It looks very natural yet perfecting and I can see almost all skin types feeling comfortable wearing it - from normal, combo and dehydrated skin, including oily skin with a dusting of setting powder down the T-zone and even dry with a juicy moisturizer underneath. But don't expect a strong matifying effect because it's very soft - more satin than matte.

It wears beautifully and I've noticed some light shine on the forehead after 4h on my combo skin - pretty good in my books. Shades aren't catered to fair or cool-toned skin, unfortunately (both shades run rather warm). Light is ideal for my current pale-ish skin right now and Medium will be my jam when I get a tan, as I intend on continuing to use this BB cream. It's a fuss-free BB cream really - no big promises yet very solid delivery. It's a delightful, affordable piece of makeup for everyday - simple really is sometimes all I need.

  • Kada je sminkanje na svakodnevnoj bazi u pitanju, ja se vodim nacelom da je manje - vise. U tom kontekstu su BB kreme i sve vrste toniranih krema, nama sada poznate pod slovima alfabeta, moja idealna baza. Volim kada su ugodne na kozi, srednjeg prekrivanja (koje potom mogu poboljsati korektorom na mjestima gdje mi je potrebno vece prekrivanje), da ne oksidiraju, da imaju pristojnu zastitu od suncevih zraka i da nisu previse sjajne posto preferiram staviti naglasak iluminatorom na zeljena mjesta vlastitom rukom.
  • Avon Nutra Effects BB krema mat finisha SPF15 (30ml | 9,90KM), je u mojim ocima, sve ono sto je trebala biti ona prva Garnier BB krema - nema tezine, nije pregusta, ne oksidira i nema nepozeljnog sjaja! Jedino sto ove dvije BB kreme imaju zajednicko je slab izbor nijansi ali ovdje je plus stvarno povoljna cijena uz odsustvo mana. Zato cu vam reci da, ako se ikako vas ten uklapa u ono sto imamo na ponudi - vrijedi je nabaviti.
  • Pakovanje je jednostavno, nista izvan okvira standardnog - mekana bijela tuba sa narandzastim detaljima. Ova BB krema je parfimirana a miris se ne zadrzava na kozi. Iz nekog razloga me miris jako podsjeca na Avon TTA parfem (meni licno, jako drag). Tekstura BB kreme jeste malo gusca ali uopste nije masna i opisala bih je kao kombinaciju kreme i prozracne pjene. Divno se nanosi preko koze, ublazi izgled vecine nesavrsenstava (npr. popunjavanje pora, finih linija itd.) ali je ten i sa njom jako svjez i prirodan. Nema skliskog osjecaja silikona pod prstima, tezine ni ljepljivosti.
  • Jako mi se dopada finish ove BB kreme - izgleda i na dodir ostavlja osjecaj satenskog finisha, uopste nije previse mat. Mogu zamisliti da ce lijepo izgledati na gotovo svim tipovima koze - od normalne, mjesovite, dehidrirane, masne uz pomoc malo pudera na T-zoni pa cak i suhe, uz neku socnu hidratantnu kremu ispod. Ali jedna opaska - nemojte ocekivati izrazit matirajuci efekat - jako je prirodan, mek i vise satenski nego mat.
  • Lijepo djeluje na kozi i nakon visesatnog nosenja. Licno sam primjetila malo sjaja na celu nakon 4h nosenja (bez baze, pudera, fiksatora) - za moju mjesovitu kozu je ovo sasvim okej. Postoje samo dvije nijanse koje, nazalost, nece odgovarati blijedoj puti i tenu hladnog podtona (obje nijanse su dosta tople). Light je idealna za moj trenutacni ten koji je dosta svijetliji nego inace a Medium nijansu cu koristiti kada koza potamni. Definitivno namjeravam nastaviti sa koristenjem jer mi odgovara ova jednostavna BB krema - nema spektakularnih obecanja a rezultati su stvarno solidni. Ovo je jednostavan komad kozmetike koji ne kosta puno - bas je lijep primjer kako je najjednostavnija stvar nekada upravo ono sto nam treba.

    1. Guilty as charged!

      Sta reci, dosta je dobra kremica iako stvarno ne matira poput nekog jakog pudera - ako volis laganu bazu, satenski finish a da ne kosta puno - pa, vjerovatno neces pozaliti kupovinu (ako se za to odlucis) ;)

    1. Nije pretamna uopste, dok je druga dosta tamnija i toplija.
      Meni odgovara jer se inace ne sminkam mnogo, za svaki dan je super :)

  3. Which one do you like more Garier BB cream or this one from Avon? :)
    I wanna try something with light coverage, but I have very oily t-zone and I can't find long lasting bb cream from the drugstore.

    1. Definitely Avon - Garnier BB cream is too thick and heavy (all versions).

      You'll probably continue to have the same problem as drugstore BB creams aren't really as lasting as the original Eastern ones. These are basically oomphed up tinted moisturizers.

      This BB cream is rather solid - it has a light to medium coverage (can be sheered out), will take down the shine and it has a really decent lasting power.
      I'd recommend purchasing it on a sale or something - it's a pleasant surprise! :)

  4. Ja imam onu 'obicnu' koja nije mat i prezadovoljna sam! Odlicna za ovo doba godine kada kozi treba zastite a ipak nije teska i definitivno daje osjecaj svezine licu :)

    1. Bas tu obicnu sam prosle ili pretprosle godine stalno nosila tokom ljeta i bila je divna.

      Ova je jos ljepse iznenadjenje, jer mi trenutno odgovara manje sjajan izgled koze.
      Inace, obje su jako, jako dobre ♥
