The Infamous Lidl £1.99 BB Cream

It is safe to say i'm a big fan of BB Creams and have tried a good fair few. Whilst browsing online last Friday I stumbled across a Daily Mail article about the new Lidl BB Cream that was surprisingly good and best of all only £1.99. The day after I made a trip to Lidl whilst out and picked it up. 
First off for £1.99 I wasn't expecting the packaging to be anything special, it comes in a beige tube. There are two shades of the BB Cream available, Light and Medium and it also comes with an SPF 15. 
As with all BB Creams the claims this comes with sound a little too good to be true, such as smoothing fine lines, blurring imperfection and having a flash radiance treatment. 
So is it any good? Much to my surprise, yes it is! It applies much like a moisturiser and feels very light on the skin. I applied with my fingers and then blended out with a brush. The coverage is light but can be built up to a medium coverage. It definitely evens out the skintone but doesn't cover all my blemishes, a little concealer over those would do the job though. It looks very natural on the skin and doesn't cling to dry patches or look oily on the skin. The wear time is also pretty good, it lasts for most of the day and wears evenly.

For me the only downside is the shade, being a pale person I found the Light shade to be a touch too dark, mainly on my jaw line where it can look slightly orange. For the price if you're on a budget I would recommend this product, especially if you aren't as pale as me. I think I will still keep using this but because it is a little too dark it won't be making it's way into my daily routine which is a shame because I really like the finish and look it gives.

Osiris BB Cream retails for £1.99 and is available at Lidl. 

Will you be trying the BB Cream? What are you're favourite cheap makeup products?
