I try to keep my makeup routine as simple as possible, but at some point someone told me that if you wear foundation, you should wear a primer. I happen to wear foundation a lot of the time, and it does seem to look a lot better with primer. However, putting on primer has always just felt like I was putting on another thing that might clog my pores or make me break out--especially in warm, sweaty months like these. Magically, a new Smashbox primer--considered by many to be the best primer out there--appeared in our office with the words "BLEMISH CONTROL" on the front, and I snatched it up immediately.
In a truly blind beauty test, where the testers have no knowledge of brand, packaging, price range, or previous reviews, what products would reign supreme? With that in mind, we at Fashionista concocted the "Blind BB Cream" test.
So Flaunt magazine and Le Baron had the genius idea to throw a Guantanamo-themed Coachella party called 'New Guantanamo,' featuring "playful torture." Sounds like an excellent politically correct time, right? Flaunt still thinks so.

There’s a (pseudo) new kid on the beauty block here in the US, and from the looks of it, BB creams—otherwise known as Beauty Balm, Beauty Benefit, Blemish Base, Beblesh Balm, or Blemish Balm--are quickly becoming the crème de la crème of the cosmeceuticals (skin care + makeup) industry. BB creams can be traced back to 1950s Germany, when Dr. Christine Schrammek created a salve to aid skin healing in post-peel and laser surgery patients, while also masking splotchy, inflamed redness and shielding sensitive skin from the sun. Fast forward 50+ years, when BB creams exploded in popularity in Asia, Japan, and Europe--thanks to drop-dead gorgeous Korean actresses like Song Hye Kyo singing its praises--and suddenly everyone is clamoring to introduce their own to the US market.
