Review: MUA All in One Beauty Balm

Inspired by the ever popular Asian Beauty Balms that have taken the Beauty community by storm this year, MUA Professional are bringing out a purse friendly version, due to hit the shelves this month.  As you will know I love BB creams, as I tend to prefer a more natural look in the day time and just need a little something to even out my skin, not a full coverage foundation. The new MUA All in One Beauty Balm is a full coverage foundation containing a multi-functional formula that conceals, brightens and evens out skin tone for a perfect complexion. 

It comes in three shades: light, medium and dark - and has skin adapting technology to adapt to your own skin. I tried the Medium shade which was perfect for my colouring (normally I'm a MAC NW15/20 if I'm not tanned). The BB Cream is much thicker in consistency than other BB Creams and gives a full coverage but is still lightweight on the skin. It was easy to blend and buff into the skin - I tend to rub in with my fingers rather than using a brush and there is no need in using a powder to set. I found the finish to be matte and I think this would be great for oily skins. I did however find the formulation slightly drying in areas where I'm prone to dryness such as around the nose and forehead so I would suggest using a good serum and moisturiser underneath but overall I think this is a great BB Cream for those on a budget as it is the cheapest currently on the market. 

MUA All in One Beauty Balm Foundation is priced at £4 and shall be available from 14th March at Superdrug and 

Have you tried any BB Creams? What are your favourites?

  2. i don't really use foundation because i don't like my face to feel heavy and cakey. but this sounds great! it looks like it gives a full coverage which is good.

  3. I use Garniers Beauty Balm 'Miracle', it also has an SPF in it that I like. I reviewed it and the scientific claims they make on my blog -

  4. The texture of this looks quite good, especially for the price :)

  5. I've tried the Garnier and I didn't like it, it was too dark for my pale skin. My fave BB Cream so far is Skin79 it is a true BB cream from Korea. I'd definitely love to try the MUA BB Cream :) Thanks for blogging about it.


  6. I am a bit confused with this, I believed that BB Creams are supposed to be a tinted moisturiser with all the good bits thrown in... If you have to use a moisturiser as well this clearly misses the point?

  7. Defo think I will be trying this! £4 is such fab value!

  8. I loved the coverage from Garnier but it was way too oily for my skin. 17 has left me feeling a little meh -not enough coverage, difficult to blend. This sounds like one I absolutely have to try!
