Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream in Coffee Glaze Swatch (Brown Girl Friendly)

I went on a quick errand run with my dad today that brought us to CVS. I haven’t been there in a while, so naturally I ended up venturing to the beauty section to see what they’re carrying.

My CVS never carried NYX or Black Radiance, so I was both surprised and happy to see them there.

Switching topics though, I have been on the lookout for a BB/CC cream for a while now, but just haven’t gotten around to getting one because of 1) price, 2) possibility of turning my face into a grease vat, or 3) no shades for me. You can only imaging how happy I was when I laid my eyes on this:


There were only 3 shades left: Chocolate, another one I don’t remember, and this one, Coffee Glaze.

I swatched Chocolate on my hand, but that one was too dark, or too red based. Coffee Glaze seemed a bit closer to my shade, and had a bit more yellow in it. I’ll have to see how it is when applied on the face.

It didn’t feel too thick, or too runny, and it spread pretty nicely. I’m excited to use this, and can’t wait to review it.

Let me know if any of you have used this, or if you have any BB cream recommendations!

  1. I have used the Black Radiance BB Cream in the color Brown Sugar. It’s a little dark for me so I usually mix it with something. It actually gives pretty good coverage. I always wear my Beautifully Matte Makeup Base No 7 (Target) under everything because I tend to end up a little shiny once I start glistening. I also have Iman’s BB Creme in Clay Medium Deep. I like it as well. I have NARs Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Polynesia (Dark) it was a little pricey, nevertheless, I like it. My all time favorite is a $7 BB called Kiss Aqua BB Balm. It is my everyday coverage. It actually gives full coverage. I love it in the color Medium. You can get it at local beauty supply stores. I think they have a new one out too. Ive been looking for it.

    • I’ve heard lots of great things about the NARS tonted moisturizer. I’ve been eyeing it in the colour Seychelles. I’ll have to check out some of the others you mentioned, but I’ll definitely be sure to look at the Kiss one.
