So nearing the end of summer I decided to try out a couple other BB creams once more, after being previously disappointed with other brands.
First of all the packaging is super cute! The pink tube, which could've easily turned tacky, is adorable yet still carries an air of elegance about it. The pump is super nifty/hygienic, alas it does have a tendency to shoot out more than I need at times.
The formula itself is currently too light for me, and I will update this review once I review it on my fully untanned skin. But currently I am using this to lighten another BB cream which is too dark for me. Now let me tell you, when I use the other BB cream (it is the smashbox one), on its own it has pretty terrible longevity. However when I mix the Lioele BB into it, it lasts WAYYYY longer. Rather interesting, especially considering that the Lioele carries a certain bit of dewiness to it. Not sure why, but i'll take the results! The coverage on this stuff is also excellent.
Like most all asian BB creams this one too is scented, but I find it to be less offensive, not quite the usual garish baby powder scent, like of that found in MISSHA.
Overall I would definitely recommend this, however anyone over nc25 should definitely beware.
This is my HG BB cream. The coverage is medium-full which is exactly what I'm looking for. I really don't even need to put on foundation over this unless I'm looking for a really flawless look... but when I just add a translucent powder only over this, I've been told by friends that my makeup looks "fresh" which is really nice to hear. The packaging is cute and I love the pump because it's not only sanitary, one pump gives just the exact right amount of BB cream I need to cover my face. I really have nothing bad to say about this BB cream. I will probably always repurchase this.
I had high hopes for this BB cream at first. It smells nice. Has good coverage about medium to full i would say. But unfortunately it doesn't look our feel to flattering on my skin. its very heavy on the skin and feels like your wearing A LOT of product even if your wearing just a little bit. it doesn't blend into the skin very well and really sinks into the pores and makes them much more visible. When your blending the product it can feel like your pulling your skin with it. The color is nice at first but on my skin it oxidizes quite badly and gets a orange color 5 mins after applying it. but it last pretty much all day on the skin and wont melt off if your skin is oily like mine.Overall not the best product in my opinion. The packaging is cute though and good quality.
This stuff is gorgeous. I really don't think I could live without it in my makeup collection now! I like it better than the Lioele beyond the solution BB cream because it gives better coverage and isn't quite so dry/matte looking.
I had heard a lot of people say it its quite pale, on my face it was a perfect match and I am NW15 or NC15 in MAC which is quite pale but this BB cream is still darker than my skin but it still blends in well and looks natural.
It gives amazing coverage, it looks nice and dewy and moisturising at first but dries to a semi matte, still looking hydrated, and stays on all day its great.
I use Nyx dewy finish setting spray over the top and it stays looking fresh and amazing all day and night!. My skin is dry so I like an illuminating look.
All in all this BB cream is better than most foundations I have tried in my time and I've tried one hell of a lot!!! Leaves a beautiful finish and I am definitely going to keep re purchasing. :)
I saw this product recommended on a YouTube tutorial on how to cover hardcore cystic acne. The angry red blotches seem to magically disappear on the video so I was quite impressed. I ordered it all the way from Korea to the UK from eBay and it took only around 10 days to arrive, free postage! Anyway.
I'm recovering from chickenpox and I was left with lots of red horrible marks on my face. And I mean loads. Also my skin is a mess at the moment with dry patches and scabs here and there. Because of this, I do get flaky dry patches with this product on but this is due to my horrible skin, I can't fault this product at all.
Even with dry patches, this BB cream does not cling to them, it gives the skin a bright/whitening finish which I personally like. Fans of bronzers, fake tan and brown skin might absolutely hate it though.
EDIT. SECOND THOUGHTS.
I've taken away two lippies as this product has no staying power whatsoever, it melts and slides off oily skin like it's nobody's business, specially around the nose. And because it doesn't control the oil, it also settles inside scars (acne or otherwise). So I reckon, great for dry or normal skins, but not great for oily or combo.
I got this in a sample pack so can't comment on price or packaging. This was much too dark for my fair skin, and it had orange tones to it (think the light garnier one) It was very thick and I found it difficult to spread and blend. I also found that it showed my pores which I had never had happen before. It also feels quite Mask like on my face. One good aspect is that it has quite good coverage. I don't like this anywhere near as much as the lioele dollish veil vita bb cream
I am thrilled with this BB cream! It goes on smooth, with medium to full coverage. I apply this with my beauty blender, and the result is near flawless skin. However I have dry cheeks and if i don't use a seperate moisturizer my skin looks flakey. I do think its worth the price, I have never come across anything like this bb cream. Will repurchase this wonderful product.
I've been so excited to try this bb cream! I have been using this all through this summer and at first it kinda broke me out but then i guess my skin got used to it? I do still get the occasional monthly pimples but other than that it has been treating me fairly.
This cream is definitely one that has medium to heavy coverage, which is what i want in a bb cream! I only use half a pump if not less so i still have a lot of product and it should last me quite some time longer and i have been using it pretty much every day this summer.
I do have to spot reapply late in the day sometimes but other than that its a really natural look and covers better than any other creams i've tried.
I dont recommend to wear it if youre going to be outdoors all day. school and work is okay though and ALWAYS WASH YOUR FACE at the end of everyday as you would with any makeup.
Love love love this stuff! Applies nicely and evenly and is super soft to my skin. I also love the cute princess themed tube. The tube is a pump and makes this look very fancy and expensive. Matches my ski tone perfectly. I know most don't like Korean or Japanese brand bb creams because they're isn't a variety of shades I actually like that since I can never get my correct shade anyways.
This BB cream have really HARDCORE coverage at all. It covers really everything. It lasts all day on my face. This product is great for evening - go - out. Its little bit heavy, but doesnt matter to me. The colour is also not so grey as most of BB creams are. It has heeling and soothing ability. I use this bb cream when I go out in the evening. For everyday use is still a little bit heavy for me.
