Garnier, who has the most accessible and affordable BB cream on the UK market, didn't even think of including a dark range in their BB creams. Think I'm joking then check out their website. In both Boots and Superdrug you can only find Garnier BB creams in light or medium.
UNE, does coms the closest to matching anything close to my skin tone (and thats not saying much as it is still a LOOOONG way off). It has no spf and is more of a cream compact foundation than a BB cream
And finally MAC! MAC, I am soo very disappointed in you. Mac is the last stop destination for women of colour and even they didn't offer a BB cream in a suitable colour. On the MAC Website, they boast that their Prep + Prime beauty balm 'is lightly tinted in a sheer beige tone to work on an array of complexions' . . yeah . . . well . . . NOT!!!! If I wore anything beige as a foundation or under my foundation, I honestly believe people would stop me in the street asking if there is either something wrong with me or if I was sick.
Now people could read this and say I am making a big deal out of nothing but I honestly dont believe I am. If you are going to put something on the market and plug a whole lot of PR and Advertising into it then you should make sure it can be used more the majority of skin-tones. Because honestly anyone who has a seriously deep tan/ happens to have dark skin (whether Asian, African, Caribbean, South American or mixed race) and live in the UK,would find that they can't reap the benefits of the BB cream phenomenon . . .Well until they happen to bring out a new shade next year then reset the whole bb cream hullabullo hype to drum up sales, instead of bringing out all the right shades AT THE SAME TIME LIKE THEY WERE MEANT TO!!!
I popped into the largest Boots closest to my home in search for 17's magnetic polish (no luck by the way) and I spied this colourful display just winking at me. Model's own has brought out their own range of brushes, mirrors, eyeslash curlers etc etc etc . . . why did I not know about this???
*there's no such thing as too many make-up brushes* but I decided to be a good girl and grabbed a pink and white, 'peppermint on acid inspired' mirror . . . I think I might go back for the brushes though

I don't know about you but me and my friends would get the biggest kick out of it and if we had a spare $4000, we could thanks to Real-F and their 3-D printer which makes a 'spookily' detailed replica of your face.
I'm talking skin tone, freckles, lips shade, eye colour, eyebrows . . blemishes. The whole shabang!!
