Love it - The Korean's really know their stuff when it comes to BB cream. As I already have about a zillion and one products to use up I managed to exercise some shopping restraint and ordered this in the 15ml size to try out as well as her sister "Always Triple" - which is a good one too.( I prefer Always Triple for my Normal/Combo skin and the fact that it has an SPF).
As you don't need much at all this little tube will last awhile, it does come in full size too, my skin is NC15 and the colour match is good, I think it could easily work for a darker skin with a bit of bronzer or coloured setting powder. I like to apply this is with a damp BB or RT sponge. The finish is beautiful - coverage light to build-able medium but you can't build it up too much as it does tend to cake. Because this is hydrating I do need to lightly powder over this as I have combo skin.
I have tried Missha, Lioele and Skin 79 as well and think I do prefer Elisha Coy over the others. I bought mine from www.prettyandcute.com a site in the US that has a great range of Korean products and skincare.
They ship to NZ and Australia direct, have loads of sample sizes to buy and free samples to try. There are 2 shipping options so be sure to select the cheaper one as the other can get pricey if you are doing a big order.
I liked this BB cream a lot. It is the second one I'm using and it perfectly matches my skin tone. If you apply it with a foundation brush it will cover pretty good as I have acne prone skin. It has a light smell and after application you won't notice it at all. I would not recommend it to people with oily skin because you would probably have to reapply it throughout the day.
But for people with dry/ combination skin it is good because it makes your skin shine and look moisturized. The problem with this BB cream is that it gives me breakouts!! :(
So i won't be buying it again.
This is the first BB cream that doesn't settle into my pores. Although the shade is a bit too dark for me, for the reason stated above I continue to use it. It has light coverage and is suitable for everyday wear. It has gray undertones so it is not suitable for those with too warm/golden skintone, or those who are too fair or too dark. Minus is that it doesn't have spf and it could deliver a better coverage considering its thick texture. Anyway, I highly recommend for those who want to achieve natural look.
I have tried a few Korean BB creams which in my opinion are vastly superior over the tinted moisturisers passed off as BB cream here in Australia.
I recently received 2 generous samples of 'Always Nuddy' with my latest purchase and have been using them this week. I believe the sample size is 2g, this lasted me 3 days.
Unlike other BB creams this is a darker shade with no ash tones that leaves you with fantastic sunkissed looking skin. Can't say it covers all my blemishes, but skintone is evened out well enough that I didn't have to go over with a concealer.
Lovely thick cream, very moisturising, applies easily and great for my mature dry skin, might not be so good for oily complexions. I love the way this left my skin feeling hydrated, soft and looking really healthy, There was no settling in the creases and it lasted all day. I am very impressed with this product.
There is enough coverage for daily wear. You don't have too but I do set with Almay Line Smoothing powder in light/medium. I also like to bronze and highlight.
Up until now my favourite brand of BB cream has been Missha but I will be replacing it with my new favourite Always Nuddy.
I finally got a sample of this BB cream. It goes on much like any other Asian BB but without that gray cast. I feel like it's a perfect choice for those with really light skin. And I like the texture so much more than Skin79's.
That being said, this doesn't last very long on me either. It fades away after about 2 hours. At $30 a bottle, it's definitely not worth the price...especially since I still can't find the full list of ingredients for this product.
Overall, it's a nice Asian BB cream but I feel like there are better products out there.
