Foundation Education: BB Vs. CC Creams



From BB to CC here’s a breakdown to help you determine which option is best for you.

BB Cream

Focusing on skincare benefits, BB cream (short for beauty balm) is an all-in-one serum, moisturizer, primer, SPF and foundation that first gained popularity in Asia. It is convenient, natural-looking, and has skin-boosting benefits.

CC Cream

Short for color correction, CC creams contain all of the BB benefits, plus color correcting ingredients like Vitamin C, to brighten dark spots and improve overall skin tone. Some even have different colored undertones to help counteract redness in skin. These creams tend to offer more coverage, and they’re especially great for people who have dark spots, acne, or unevenness.


BB Cream Picks: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB; Kiehl’s BB Cream; Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm, Dior skin Nude BB Creme SPF 10, MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 35, No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream, La Roche Posay Hydreane BB Cream.

CC Cream Picks: L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream, Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30 Hydrating Colour Corrector, Olay Regenerist CC cream, Max Factor CC Cream, L’Oreal Nude Magique CC Cream.


How to Choose

Keep in mind that every BB and CC cream has unique benefits, but in general, reach for a CC Cream over a BB Cream if you want fuller, foundation-like coverage. Either option is a great multi-tasking product that will make room in your makeup bag!

Stay gorgeous! xx

Making Heads Turn: A Bold New Fashion-forward Turban Collection by Malaak

Malaak SS2013

Turbans have made a bold fashion statement for decades. Trendsetters from Greta Garbo and Lana Turner to Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce and Sheikha Moza of Qatar have all embraced turbans as a staple of sartorial elegance, because it offers women a modest and yet fashionable piece, both fabulously classic and quietly unconventional.

Enthusiasts of previous Malaak fashion have come to expect creations of exquisite designs, masterful tailoring and a fashion-forward aesthetic that has turned this designer-to-watch into a household name whose style is immediately recognizable. Her fashion is notoriously bold and edgy and caters to women with a purpose of making a statement every day.

The collection features vintage references ranging from 50s nostalgia – think pastel colours and floral prints in silk satin and velvet, impregnated with current influences – bold graphics, patterns and accessories, which give these pieces a unique vibe and contrast: feminine and edgy.

The new Spring/Summer 2013 collection will be soon available in several boutiques and department stores in Dubai: Symphony (Dubai Mall), Saks Fifth Avenue, USH Boutique, S*uce and the signature Malaak Boutique in Jumeirah; in Doha at Impressions and in Jeddah at Cream.
