Every year there is one beauty launch that takes the world by its jaw and paints it pretty. The year 2012 has to be marked by BB Creams. A popular concept in South Korea, it soon found its way to Europe, United States and now India. Short for blemish balm or blemish base, “It’s mainly meant to camouflage, hydrate, correct coloration and protect,” elaborates Dr Emmanuelle Moirand, Scientific Director at Clinique Laboratories in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa. While we hear the concept of CC Creams, short for Colour Control Cream might be the must-have for 2013, for now we are celebrating the BB Cream phenomenon by rounding up eight fabulous options that do the job of a foundation, primer and moisturiser rolled into one. Multitasking, anyone?
