I was given this by my sister, she gave me the lightest color which was too pale for my skin, and the texture was very dry. So I have been mixing this with Garnier BB cream for oily skin the lightest shade they offer, since that is orange and very runny mixing these two together works great!! it makes the perfect match for my skin, and does well with controlling the oil.
I got this BB cream as a gift 2 years ago and I like it. I dont use it often and its not a HG for me but I like it enough that I'll repurchase it.
Product: I'm tan and the BB cream shades are all fair. As it was a gift, I didn't get to choose the shade (I'm not sure if there's only one shade?) and the shade I have is too light for me. The consistency is also really thick and can be hard to apply. The BB cream is also quite shiny which I think is good in helping us look more radiant. But on its own, your whole face can end up looking shiny. To solve these problems, I mix in a darker liquid foundation with a more watery consistency (abt 1 part BB cream and 1 part liquid foundation) and voila, I have a wonderful liquid base for my face! Just shiny enough to look radiant and much more easy to blend into my face. This combination also looks very natural on me after it sets. You have to give the BB cream a few minutes to set into your face and let the colour oxidise so don't panic if the colour looks very odd on you at first.
I used this for my sister for her prom without mixing (because she's fairer than me) and at first, the colour looked very unnatural and I panicked. But after abt 10 mins, the colour oxidized to a very natural looking colour on her and she looked so radiant yet you can't see any visible foundation or anything.
Staying power: Even without a make up primer, this can stay on for a whole day. It'll fade a little but not in an obvious manner. Also, it doesn't transfer everywhere and make a mess.
Packaging: I like the way its packaged because its easy to use and doesn't make a mess. The only thing is that the tip can become abit messy with the BB cream getting onto the side of the tip.
Overall, I'd recommend it if you are looking for a good BB cream but if you want to go for a more natural look, I'd recommend you mix this cream with a more watery foundation because this BB cream is of really thick consistency!
the coverage was really nice, I have a lot of acne scares and i didn't even need to apply extra concealer on.
it applied on easily but it was a bit thick.
it broke me out bad on my cheeks and made me really oily. Would not recommend for acne prone skin.
It was very oily. really sticky for me. I bought most light one, but it was too dark
so I apply it only one time. but price was cheap.

This BB cream has a thick texture. My face looks cakey immediately after application because of the thickness. But give it a few hours, and wait for it to set, and my skin feels moisturized and looks silky. Coverage is full, and makes my skin tone looks even and covers the minor scars and discolorations on my face. This BB cream does not break me out which is great because I have a sensitive skin! It comes with a pump dispenser, which is a plus because of hygiene issues. However, the pump can be iffy in terms of controlling the amount dispensed.
This is the first BB cream i've bought.. Usually i'm using liquid foundation from Revlon but then i willing to try BB cream because it was like all-the-base-make-up-you-used-on one bottle.. It's true.. i don't even need to use concealer or even powder anymore.. it has shimmer effect so i certainly no need to apply highlighter.. So my basic everyday make-up is changing.. I only need BB cream + eyeliner + lipgloss then i done !!
Just be careful for the amount you took, don't use it too much.. let it for a couple of second before apply it for more..
First of all, the pump on this is horrible. It is impossible to get out a controlled quantity and it leaks. That said, this is a decent BB cream, especially given the low price. In terms of brand quality, this is probably the Korean equivalent to CoverGirl. Basically, you should not be comparing this to other higher-end BB creams.
The color is very light, and this could pose a problem as this BB cream is very thick. It's FULL coverage. You could thin it out by working it into the skin more, but given the thickness, it is difficult to spread. And the scent is pleasant/powdery but too strong in my opinion. I would not recommend those who use BB cream mostly to give a nice diffused glow. If you're looking to cover up those blemishes, however, I think this is pretty much as good as BB creams get in terms of coverage. For that, and the fact that it did not make me break out, I'll give this a solid 3 stars.
Scent: hardly there
Staying Power: up to 4 hr without powder, up to 8 hr with powder
Didn't expect much from this bb cream cause it was so cheap. I was surprised with the amount of coverage. When I first tried this I had a very angry red pimple on my cheek, this bb cream completed covered it!
It has a dewy/glowy finish, very natural.
I tried Etude House's Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit SPF30/PA++ in W13, which is slightly different than the All Day Strong BB cream
Tried a sample of this, I normally use Missha's #13. It was too heavy and oily for my skin, and took a long time to remove. I could see this working out for other people with really dry skin types, but i have normal/dry skin and it was too heavy. I'm NC15 and it was too yellow and dark for my skin tone. I would hazard a guess that it would be great for NW25-30 skintones.
I feel like I wouldn't use this, but it's not a bad product.
