Collection Cosmetics BB Cream


Collection Cosmetics sent me a tube of their Bright & Glow BB cream as a prize. Yay! How cute is that packaging? Too cute! Honestly, I had to look up the Collection brand since it’s all too unfamiliar to me. Surprise surprise! It is the third largest cosmetics brand in the UK. Where was I when they were all talking about it? Seems I was pretty deaf during the hype.

The packaging on this is your old trusty plastic tube. The design is bright and colorful and true to the brand’s mission–work the color. Color, even in the packaging! Way to go!


Brightening BB cream. Lightweight BB cream for a bright and healthy glow. This advanced formulation keeps skin hydrated for a shine-free, fresh-looking glow all day. Contains SPF 30 and Vitamin C to help keep skin radiant. Oil-free. Fragrance-free.

Size: 30ml

RRP: $15.99

Available only at Countdown Supermarkets


The Bright & Glow BB cream is available in two shades, Light-Medium and Medium-Dark. I was sent the Medium-Dark which is perfect for my medium skin tone. You really can’t go wrong with the shades since the coverage is light. I tried the BB cream on M who has a lighter skin tone than me, and the Medium-Dark shade worked well too.

As for keeping the face shine-free? It’s safe to say that this BB cream is bang on! Alright, my skin isn’t oily to begin with but compared to the other BB creams I’ve tried, this one is the least shiniest. It is semi-matte and there is no shine at all. You can leave the powder at home.


This BB cream works more like an oil-control tinted foundation with SPF than an actual BB cream. I’ve noticed no changes in my skin tone after using this for over a week. I’m pretty okay with that since there were no claims on skin improvement, etc. However, it does brighten the complexion when using it. To mention, it’s oil-free and fragrance-free!


The Collection Cosmetics BB Cream is perfect for those laid-back days when you want to just slab a base on and forget about it. Yet still look healthy, glowing, and bright. You might actually forget about it since it’s so lightweight.

Collection Cosmetics is available exclusively in Countdown Supermarkets nationwide. You can find out more about their products on their website and on their Facebook page.
