Looking for an honest review of Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme, plus swatches? We’ve got you covered!
Now that I’ve tried this product – one that gives me the things I’m looking for in a light-as-air BB Cream plus a whole lot more – my gaffe doesn’t seem that silly.
Too Faced’s Air Buffed BB Crème really does offer an entire buffet of benefits, beautifully presented and totally tempting.
As always, the Too Faced retro-yet-modern packaging is stellar.
Air-Buffed comes in a low, wide jar (giving optimal access to the product) with a twist-off lid.
Its companion Teddy Bear Hair brush snaps neatly into place on the lid so you’ll always know where to find it.
Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme Review
Air-Buffed (and all Too Faced products, for that matter) is 100% cruelty-free.
Even the brush is made of super-soft, synthetic fibers. Air-Buffed is free of gluten and parabens, but full of “smart ingredients.”
These smart ingredients include Rose Fruit, which refines pores and creates matte coverage; Star Fruit Leaf, which moisturizes; and Rose Myrtle, which repairs skin and prevents UV damage.
All of the above is just icing on the cake. The product itself is the sweetest treat, a cream-to-powder formula that builds from a sheer wash of color to almost-full coverage…whatever your skin craves.
I tested Cream Glow, the third darkest of the five available colors:
Snow Glow – porcelain with pink undertone
Vanilla Glow – fair with golden undertone
Cream Glow – light beige with golden undertone
Linen Glow – medium beige with golden undertone
Nude Glow – warm beige with golden undertone
The We Heart This team also got a look at Vanilla Glow.
Our swatcher, Stef reported this “While Cream Glow is definitely on the warmer side, Vanilla Glow reads slightly cool to me, despite being listed with golden undertones. Am I the only one seeing that?”
Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme Swatches
The brush is on the small side and I’m impatient, so I used my fingers to warm up the product and apply it, then buffed the finish with the brush. A large foundation brush worked well, too.
The extremely moisturizing BB crème blurred my fine lines and evened my skin tone in a very natural, “no makeup” way.
I was able to apply a very sheer layer, almost like a tinted moisturizer, or build to a medium/heavy coverage.
Best of all, this BB crème “perfects, mattifies, primes, moisturizes, protects with SPF 20” – in other words, it replaces up to five products with one multitasking jar!
Too Faced Air Buffed BB Cream Pros & Cons
• 5-in-1 benefits from one fabulous product
• 100% Cruelty-Free
• Gluten and paraben-free
• Provides whatever level of coverage your skin needs
• Application takes too long using the brush. I had better luck with my fingers or a large foundation brush
• Might be too moisturizing for very oily skin
Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme has given me such beautifully buffed, glowing skin, I’ll definitely be stepping up to the buffet for seconds!
