Pure BB Cream in Super Light: Review and Pics

Remember Emily? Being considerably paler than I am, she's been trialling the Pure BB cream in super light.
BB creams are a bit of a mystery to me. They blew up on the market suddenly and seemed like over-hyped tinted moisturisers, so I avoided them. Until now that is. I trialled the shade “super light” from Pure’s addition to the fold and the name alone felt fitting for me. I’m really very hard to colour match and although I’ve found a few foundations I can work with, it’s a painstaking process. So for all my pale comrades out there, this one’s for you!
My first impression when I swatched this cream onto my hand was that it was quite dark. I mean really dark. Definitely not “super light.” So I took a deep, sceptical, breath and off I went.
What struck me is how hard-working this cream is. It’s great for your skin, containing vitamin E, collagen, avocado oil and aloe vera and it lasts pretty well throughout the day.
It has a thick consistency but I was surprised by how easily it spread across the face. It blended really nicely and seemed to be losing the frighteningly dark pigment as I went along but I wasn’t sold just yet.

After a few hours in work I snuck off to the bathroom to see how we were going. The make-up bag was in tow in case I needed to do some damage control but I couldn’t have been more pleased. It was the definition of a “no make-up” make-up look, which is an almost impossible look to achieve when you draw similarities to Casper the friendly ghost.
The coverage isn’t ideal for me, I need a bit more for the blemishes and bags but it did even out my skin tone and I can see how this would be perfect for those irritating lucky people who have clear skin.

This is a cream to have on hand when you want to keep it very natural and lightweight. It’s also available in light and medium and at an ‘Ermahgerd!’-worthy price, where would you be going wrong I ask you?!

No really, I’m asking you. What do you think? Are you sold on the BB cream phenomenon?
