10 of the Best Drugstore BB Creams for an Airbrushed Finish

What did we ever do before BB creams? A flawless middle ground between fuller coverage foundations and the sometimes too-sheer likes of tinted moisturizers, BB creams (short for "beauty balms") have had us covered the past few years, and we're not sure we can remember what life was like before them. Should we call it: BBBC—Before BB Creams? Maybe.

Just like other beauty products that gain fast-and-furious market momentum, there have been plenty of skin-improving innovations within the sea of BB creams, from color-correcting technology to almost instantaneous zip-zapping benefits. They're the ultimate multitaskers, saving us steps, time, and frustration while also gifting us with a blurred, glowing complexion to boot.

Plus you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for some of the best editor-approved options. So in honor of our love for all things BB, we've rounded up our top nine favorites—all of which you can find at your nearest drugstore. Keep scrolling for the best drugstore BB creams money can by. (Your glow awaits!)
