Before I begin my review, I'd like the share my experience with this BB cream~
It has been 2 years since I first started using this, at first if I were to review it, I would probably give it 2/5, because I was using it wrong, and the cover was quite uneven on my face. Now that I've gone back to it, I've had much better results. I find it better to pat it onto your skin rather than rubbing it in circular motions so the 'water molecules' don't form.
And onto the review. :)
So I ordered this from ebay (cosmetic.love), Korean sellers do amazing packaging so this arrived in perfect shape. The box is lovely, in a Cinderella-blue colour, matching the packaging of the actual BB cream. I would have preferred this to have a 'pump' like Lioele's Beyond the Solution and Triple the Solution.
Unlike most BB creams, which tend to be quite thick, this claims to have a light coverage - which is does. One layer of this is not enough to cover any blemishes like acne scars or dark circles, but it will even out your skin tone, any additional coverage needed should be achieved with a concealer. This will help keep your face feeling light throughout the day with only trouble spots having heavier coverage.
I'm quite fond of the Lioele BB creams because they have a peachy undertone instead of greyish ones that claim to 'adjust to your skin' It is slightly lighter than Beyond the Solution, and gives more of a dewy finish.
Despite having light coverage, this lasts all day with my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural (: This doesn't oxidize too much, the colour is still pretty much the same 8 hours from when I first applied it. But this is not waterproof, as someone else stated. So it needs to be set with finishing powder~!! x
Lightweight feeling, enough to even out your skin, and the price is good for what you get. Definitely recommended.
Hope this helped you curious people x
First off, I love, love, love the Lioele packaging; it is so pretty and princess-y. (The brand is actually based around a Cinderella-ish concept btw) It does exactly what it says it does; moisturize. Also the coverage is good and the SPF 27 is a plus. What I'm really disappointed in is the colour selection; there is none! This is only good for people with fair skin. I understand that this is a Korean product targeted at a more east Asian oriented market but really? It could also have to do with their obsession of fair skin and all. This goes for all Lioele makeup; they only have limited colour, the BB creams only have one and the Skin Fix there are two shades both for fair skin. All together it is a good BB cream but I doubt it's the best, definitely light, moisturizing and good coverage.
the lioele water drop bb cream gives light to meduim coverage, so if you bought this, you would need to use colncealer to, but the lioele beyond the sulotion bb cream gives medium to full coverage and you dolnt need to use concealer, but water drop feels better on my skin, and its more cooling and moisturizing. it also feels light. beyond the solution feels a bit more heavy on my skin. so overall lioele water drop bb cream is a great product, and i would absolutely buy it again.
I wanted this bb cream very much and I found it at a good price on e-bay. But...I was very dissapointed to discover that it contains parabens!! More, I don't like how it smells, even if it's not a strong smell, still don't like it. Otherwise, it's a good cream, my skin feels nice with it, it's not oily at all and the coverage it's very natural and exactly what I wanted. I won't repurchase it because it contains parabens, but probably will use the one I have.
My skin is really dry and normally any foundation I use dries my skin up and makes it patchy. So I was so glad my friend recommended this to me!
It gives really light coverage so I would recommend it to people with okay-good skin and only want a more even skin tone etc
It doesn't come in many shades and it suits a pale skin tone, gives a slight grey cast but it's not too noticeable.
I use this everytime I go out and it has never dried up my skin! :)
Only thing is you have to get it online or when I go to HK
This BB cream really matches my skin very well. I like it's texture it's very light and smooth; it feels as if i"m not wearing makeup, it's also very moisturizing on my skin. Since it is water based i can layer it on a few times (2 layers+ powder) which is a good thing because it does not provide too much coverage. Overall it's a good alternative for people who feel like other BB creams are too greasy or thick.
PS The color is unlike other BB creams, it's a bit darker coming out of the tube and it does not leave a grey cast.
I love this bb cream! It suits perfectly with my skin tone and I don't have to apply layers of moisturizer, sunscreen, etc. It also has pretty good oil control, perfect for summer use.
I bought mine at www.skinluxx.com (cheapest I could find online) with three free samples!
- Very moisturizing
- Easy to blend, and after 2mins or so, it fades into your natural skin colour.
- Super natural finish (looks like you're not even wearing any makeup)
- Doesn't give you a white cast/grey finish (unlike most BB Creams)
- SPF 25+++
- Great for days when you just don't want to wear much makeup
- Doesn't feel heavy, sticky or cakey
- Gives little to no coverage at all (it basically only evens out your skin tone. Blemishes/acne scars will still be visible)
- May give a dewy/shiny finish for oily skin
I think this is a great BB cream for people who already have good skin and just want that little extra boost to even out their skin tone. It's a good product for those days when you just don't want to wear much makeup, and it let's your skin breathe. It feels super light, and gives you that 'no make up' look.
I do have to say that if you need more coverage, then this is not the product for you. It gives little to no coverage, meaning acne scars/blemishes will still be clearly visible. This BB Cream also gives a rather dewy finish, so if you have oily skin - it may give you an unnatural shine.
All in all, this is a great product guys and definitely one of my favorite BB Creams.
I first bought a sample set and I loved this product so much I went to buy the original version.
I have dry sensitive skin and this works great for me. It's moisturizing and not oily. The bb cream blends into my skin like a dream and gives me glowing skin. It also smells refreshing.
The coverage isn't super good though as it cant cover my dark circles, but it does a pretty decent job covering pores.
People have been telling me my skin looks awesome when I have this on. The bb cream is a bit on the light side so I think it suits pale ladies more.
(skin: NC20/ Bobbi brown concealer in ivory)
GREAT love it
super light and natural, but very subtle so its not for those who want medium to high coverage
The color is yellow toned instead of gray, I feel that the light gray color in bb creams is best so I dont really love the color
Very light, moisturizing, great for everyday use
This does contain alcohol denat so although I feel like its moisturizing...I think for others it could cause irritation and dry skin
Just try a sample of this before buying the full bottle like with any other bb cream you dont know if it suits you until you try it out
