Edward Bess Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector in Medium

Overall Rating

Edward Bess is not a famous or very popular brand but I am really fond of their products. They are expensive and usually only Neiman Marcus carries this brand but from time to time you can find Edward Bess cosmetics at Sephora or Amazon at a very affordable prices (sometimes 50% off!).

Complexion Perfector is my favorite product by Edward Bess. Complexion Perfector is something between a foundation, a BB cream and a tinted moisturizer and it got the best of all three. It gives coverage like foundation, hydrates like a moisturizer and gives you the natural glow like a good BB cream should. On Neiman Marcus its price is $56 which is pretty high in my opinion. I remember buying it on sale for about $30. However, there is plenty of the product in the tube and it should last you for a while (I bought mine two years ago and still haven’t finished it). So, $56 might not be so bad after all.

It comes in a simple plastic black tube. There is nothing particularly elegant about the packaging but it is good and sturdy. There are four colors available: Light, Tan, Medium and Deep. I use Medium. It looks a bit darker than my skin but when I apply it, it adapts to my complexion and sort of melts in. What I love about the Perfector particularly is that, unlike other BB creams (Dior BB Cream and NARS Tinted Moisturizer), it doesn’t give my skin that orange oompa-loompish undertone. The texture is nice: it’s a bit runny and that way it melts in with your skin faster and more naturally.
