If you follow my blog or follow me on twitter you will know i am foundation obsessed! I own over 30 foundations and always on the hunt for a new one. I do have my favourites which i always go back to but i guess i just love searching for that perfect base. Mousse foundation is something i haven’t tried since i was at school which was nearly 8 years ago! So when i was recently asked if i would like to review the Bell HypoAllergenic BB Mousse i was quick to say yes.
The first thing that intrigued me about the product was it being Hypo Allergenic which means it should be good with sensitive skin and not cause any reactions. The mousse itself is extremely creamy and doesn’t feel drying at all. I thought i would try applying this in different ways. I first tried with my fingers which i hate doing but wanted to test out the product, it applied smoothly but found it could apply a little thick. Next i applied it with a beauty sponge and found it to sheer out the product and not blend evenly. Lastly i applied it with my Makeup Addiction The Buffer Brush which i have pictured above. It is a large buffer brush with applied the foundation evenly and gave me amazing coverage!
What is the coverage you ask? Well if applied correctly this will be medium-full coverage. It covered any redness, blemishes and breakouts. Suprisingly for a mousse foundation it didn’t cling to dry patches. This may have been because i moisturised and applied a primer.
I found it did have a matte effect but still looked slightly dewy which i liked as sometimes if products are too matte it can look a little odd and un-natural. I was extremely impressed at how well this lasted with my oily skin. It didn’t go patchy, it didn’t oxidize and overall gave a flawless finish.
The Bell HypoAllergenic BB Mousse retails for £6.95 Im a NW20/NW25 in MAC and found the lightest shade to be a perfect match.
This brand is also Cruelty Free and most of the products are also Vegan Friendly.
