Beauty Review – Seventeen Cosmetics BB Balm and CC Cream Review

Seventeen Cosmetics BB Balm and CC Cream Review


Here’s today’s review of the Seventeen Cosmetics BB Balm and CC Cream foundations. Find out if this is worth to try and worth your money too!

What I like about Seventeen cosmetics is that it is affordable and the product quality is great! I don’t deny it… I have a thing for Seventeen cosmetics ever since I got this, thisthis and this.

In my opinion, Seventeen cosmetics seem underrated when it comes to drugstore makeup brands. I don’t know about you, but I go bananas if I don’t look through their stand every time I go to Boots. Funny enough, I never come home empty-handed. Just recently, I made a “little” splurge again and got myself these two:

Seventeen cosmetics BB “Beauty Balm” and CC “Color Corrector” foundation. Well, to BB or to CC now? How simple can that be? Let’s see!

I believe their BB “Beauty Balm” is suited for those who have drier skin while the CC “Color Corrector” is in matte formulation perfect for those who have oily skin. I believe those with a combination skin type can still work around these two.

Both products applied on smoothly on the face. Covers skin imperfections and lasted on me a long time. It also doesn’t make me break out. Hooray!

The BB cream’s full coverage on my skin is impressive! It doesn’t melt on the skin and feels very lightweight. Between the two products, I use the CC Cream mostly every day. Because I prefer mostly a matte coverage. It doesn’t look flat, not chalky nor it sit on the fine creases. It has micro mini glitters in it that creates a radiance glow effect while keeping the matte formulationon the surface, especially in my t-zone areas and still looking fresh all day.

Personally, I would’ve preferred a couple more shades to select from within their BB and CC Matte. At the moment they only have 2 shades which is light and medium. Sometimes I find, if I am given so many choices, it does my head in. More choices makes things complicated and more room for faults. Hence, I’ve picked up each shade to try.

I took the BB in medium shade which has a yellow undertone in it. I was super glad when I got it right as this one suits my skin tone perfectly.

Then I picked up the CC Matte in light shade (of course I’ve drawn to try it too!) which is a more peach undertone. At first I thought I got it wrong as it is not my shade when I applied it on but the shade tends to oxidize and then blended well with my skin colour. Luck is definitely on my side!

Both have an SPF 25 factor which is excellent to wear in this season. For a price of £6.99 each how can you be wrong? You can get these two here and here.


Seventeen BB and CC Cream are both great products to try and makes them super value for money. If you have a fiver or a tenner and looking for a drugstore makeup buy, drop by the stand of Seventeen cosmetics. I’m sure you will find something you like.

Which one between Seventeen Cosmetics BB Balm and CC Cream do you think suits you best?

I hope the camera picks up well the foundation application in this picture.
