Today I'm going to be talking about the most expensive BB Cream I've ever tried, the Yves Saint Laurent BB Cream in the shade Clear. This was recommended to me by my lovely local YSL counter artist after I talked about how I liked the way the YSL CC Cream made my skin feel, but how weird it made it look!

I was very hesitant to accept this sample because I was doubtful that it would be pale enough for me considering all of the YSL foundation "pale" shades are slightly too dark, but this was pleasantly surprising! This is the clear shade, and I'm truly not sure whether I should be offended or that it's just called clear because it has very little pigmentation in the product. Either way, it's very pale and neutral leaning warm toned. It blends right into the skin leaving very little coverage, but it does blur some imperfections and larger pores! ^.^
I've used this BB Cream as a primer with foundations and just as a stand alone BB Cream and it works just as well either way! It primes my skin amazingly, gives a lovely natural skin look by itself and makes my skin feel amazing!
Would I Purchase This Product?I would love to, but at $81NZD it's quite expensive for 40mls of product. I really love the product, but I consider it more of a primer or tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream since it's so sheer! It smells amazing, makes my skin look and feel incredibly healthy, so if I could afford it I would definitely buy it!
