Will everyone saying BB Creams are like tinted moisturisers stop please :P Proper BB Creams, as in Korean (Asian) ones, offer a lot more coverage than a tinted moisturiser. You may still need a concealer for a few spots or whatever.
They're also in no way a 'fad'. They're an established beauty staple in the Asian world and have been popular for many years now, it's just the Western world has been incredibly slow to catch on, and now that they have, they're producing some pretty awful results which are much more like tinted moisturisers than their korean sisters.
If you want to try a korean BB cream and not pay an arm and a leg, then try Bello-Girl
over at eBay. She only sells genuine products and she does them at such reasonable prices too! Plus she usually sends little satchet samples of other BB Creams for you to try as well. Your best place to start would be something like Missha M Perfect Cover or maybe Skin79. Holika Holika is the cheapest BB creams she does but they are really good and they do 5 different varieties of their Petite range depending on your skin type (Clearing, Moisture, Essential, Watery and Shimmer).
