Do I need to set my BB Cream with a powder?

powderIn todays world of cosmetics BB creams are commonly mistaken for liquid foundations, resulting in many women setting their BB creams with powder. Liquid foundations do not set, or at least do not set fast. It requires the use of a powder to achieve that matte look. However, the combination of liquid foundation and powder has a few setbacks to it: crack formations and sometimes, that “cakey-look”.
These problems are easily solved with the use of BB creams. The major advantage is you no longer have to worry about setting the cream up with powder after application. Good BB creams contain talc, a similar ingredient often found in baby powders and facial powders. It is the talc that provides BB cream that powdered finish.

Is BB Cream enough to give me a good coverage?
