I actually got a sample of this product, and it was shade #1 which is the lightest. Amazingly, it matched my skin tone very well. It gave me a matte finish, neutralized my red cheeks, and my skin looked clearer. This BB cream was easy to blend for me, especially when I applied it with my fingers. My face felt very moisturized after application so I was pretty happy with that. After a day, my face was still semi-matte, but that was expected. It is pretty cheap, about $9+ on eBay.
I just looove this bb cream. It's got the typical korean bb cream texture: it's thick and kinda siliconey, if that makes sense.
But i think it's great not having to apply several layers of the product for a good coverage. The application is quick and foolprof. I do it with my fingers, cause i found it could look streaky when applied with a brush.
The only tiny problem i have with this bb cream is the color. It's not greyish like the skin79 ones, but it has a pink undertone to it that just doesn't go with my light yellowish skin. Nothing that a little powder can't fix though.
As it is super inexpensive, i recommend you to try it, especially if you've never tried any asian bb creams.
I got a sample size of this BB cream, so I cannot talk about long-term effects such as breakouts. I was pretty disappointed with the low SPF20 PA+ but I was still excited to try it. It's said to be designed for those with sensitive skin in particular, leaving the skin "moisturized while it corrects skin tone for a naturally air-brushed complexion."
My sample was in shade #1. I'm between an NC20-25 with light yellow tones. This BB cream was beige leaning slightly pink/peach toned. It wasn't a perfect match but it was pretty decent.
The consistency was thick when I squirted it out the packet, but applied lightly on my face if that makes sense. It didn't feel heavy or thick and blended pretty easily. I have normal-combo skin and it left my skin looking a little flakey on my forehead and cheeks, so a good moisturizer beforehand is essential for me.
The coverage was nothing special - it evened out my skintone and covered any redness and discolouration. I'd describe it as light to just below medium coverage. The claims of an 'airbrushed finish' were not true in my experience. It was natural looking, my skin but more evened out. The finish was quite matte upon application but soon turned into a soft matte/slightly glowy. It held up well throughout the day but settled around my nose and got a bit dewy on my nose after a couple of hours. I don't think it's a very long-wearing BB cream but lasting power was good.
I would not repurchase this BB cream as I prefer the skinfood Mushroom one...works better for my skin type and the finish is nicer. This BB is nothing special and I wouldn't waste my money on it tbh.
It is moisturizing (for the first 2 hours) and cover up my dark eye circle. However, the oil in the BB cream might cause acne problem on the T zone. After 2 to 3 hours, the BB cream effect start to fade. My cheek will become dry and it is not easy to remove the makeup with cleansing cream.
It's got a decent sheer coverage, but the texture is too thick for my taste, it's too creamy and I prefer liquid. My biggest issue is the packaging: terrible! So hard to squeeze the product out! Maybe it was the specific BB Cream I bought but ugh!
- delivers that sheer coverage
- With proper application (brush works well) it looks quite natural; a friend asked how I keep my skin in such good shape rather than what makeup I use
- texture too creamy and thick
- potential to make my skin flake
- the tube does not like squeezing out the cream!!
- as with all BBs, limited in shades
Very sheer coverage with pink/orangy tone and very hard to spread T.T
Broke the hell out of my skin and took me 2 months to somewhat recover. My sensitive acne skin was already bad as it is, I didn't need a SKINCARE foundation to make it worse. I have half a mind to try and sue the s*** out of skinfood. Other than the nasty breakouts though, the only good thing was probably the texture and coverage. It felt thick and heavy on my face and the shade oxidised horribly on me, I looked like the freaking lovechild of Donatella Versace and an Oompa Loompa.
Bought on Ebay, got #2 first, when it arrived it was just a bit too dark so i gave it to a friend who loves it and ordered it in #1. I wear it as my only foundation and use a light layer of powder over it. Love it. My skin is great and this is perfect for summer.
I bought this product in summer and my skin is slightly oilier when the weather is warmer. When I used this the first couple of times I was happy with the coverage, it's sheer but still provides some coverage but I did not like it because it did not last very long and my skin got oily fast.
I didn't touch it for a couple of months and now it is winter and I used it again getting much better results this time! It lasted very long and did not dry out my skin!
I would recommend this product in the colder days when your skin feels dry though this product does nothing for me in summer.
It comes in two shades 1# (lighter with yellow undertones) and 2# (slightly darker with pinkish undertones). I have shade 1# and am really happy with it.
I got this in a swap, and I'm LOVING it!! I have shade 2 and it fits my skin tone perfectly! I only need a small amt to cover my whole face, and it really evens out my natural tone very well. It doesnt look like I have makeup on when I put it on, it just looks so natural! I love this 10x better than the Super Magic BB Cream I owned once before. It feels SO light weight and has a nice scent as well! Simply amazing! I'll def. buy it when I run out, or swap for one again! :):)
