Today, a new product from Dr. Jart+ goes in the gradebook. This is the BB Mate Contouring 1.2.3 Kit, which I purchased online from Sephora. The Dr. Jart+ BB Mate kit comes with three shades – Highlight, Neutralize, and Bronze. These are meant to be applied over your favorite Dr. Jart+ BB, but of course, you can really use whatever foundation you want!

Ease of Application: 5/5
All three of the shades come in a tube with a doe foot applicator. I like to dot the products on my face and then blend with fingers, sponge or brush. Amazingly for a liquid product, I even find this easy to use to contour the nose area. I have nothing bad to say about the application.
These shades all blend superbly with each other and other makeup. The bronze shade, which I use for contouring, manages to blend out while still maintaining some color on the initial application area, making it a really easy product to use. All three tubes have the consistency of a liquid concealer – not runny but not thick.
This is a tricky situation because all of these colors are perfect for me, which means they will not be perfect for a lot of people. I do think you could be somewhat lighter or darker and still find a way to work with these three shades. I would love to see Dr. Jart+ come out with sets for other skin tones. [Edit: an Instgram friend has informed me that Dr. Jart+ has indicated they are making a set for darker skin tones!]
The little booklet that these tubes come in is cute, but is also excessive. It is hard to get the tubes in and out of their little nooks. I plan on throwing the box away as soon as this post is published. Additionally, I am concerned that for the price, these tubes are a bit small. I am worried about running out of product.
The Dr. Jart+ BB Mate Contouring 1.2.3. Kit receives an A!
I really like this product. The price may make some hesitate, but if you have money to spend and are fair skinned – go for it!
