Osiris Avisé BB Cream from Lidl

Dia daoibh!


Today I'm going to review a new BB cream to hit the Irish shelves in Lidl. Introducing Osiris BB Cream available from Lidl as of today for a mere €2.99. (I have reviewed the CC Cream version >HERE<.) As with most Beauty Balms, this can be worn alone or underneath foundation. From my experience, this has a light coverage which is why I personally prefer to use it as a base to give my lighter foundations and extra layer. Worn alone I found it to be too sheer for my taste although it's consistency is quite thick.

This is marketed as being an "8-in-1" BB Cream...... what that claims is skeptical but one plus is that it has an SPF of 15 - another great reason for it to be used under your foundation.  It is quite moisturising and because of that it does take quite a while to set and stays almost tacky for a while after application. It
 stayed dewy on my skin, lasted pretty well throughout the day and wears evenly.


You may be able to tell from the picture that a downside to this is the shade. I wore the Light shade and found it to be a touch too dark; a common occurrence in BB Creams (and foundations for that matter!) It's not overly dark, so again, works perfectly under a little foundation/concealer.


Overall it's a decent BB cream, especially for the price of €2.99. It's moisturising, applies & blends out  nicely and lasts well throughout the day.

Below are some more from the range available from today, the 27th January 2013 while stocks last.
