First Impression: the packaging is GREAT. It's hygienic and very cute! It comes in a tube with a pump. When I first used it, my pores were exaggerated and gave me white cast. But that was because my skin was dirty and I didn't know how to cleanse and moisturize properly.
Second Impression: After getting my skincare routine in place, I tried this BB Cream again and... WOW. It makes my skin look healthy, perfect skintone match (I have slight yellow undertones) and gave me a healthy glow without making me look like an oily mess!!! It made me look like I didn't have anything on!
The packaging is really cute, the only downside is that the pump is kinda harsh to press, if I press gently a too tiny amount would come out, if I press with way more strengh, too much would come out so I only do a lot of little press. The cream goes easily on the transparent cap so if you don't remove it, it can look dirty really fast
The finish is mate, for a more dewy finish I recommend to mixt it with your day cream. Coverage is okay but it really accentuate flaky skin, so if you have dry skin I don't recommend it
The only BB cream I actually like! The colour is slightly too light for me - NC20 - but with a little powder on top it looks fine. Most Asian BB creams appear grey or pink on my skin but this doesn't. I like the beige tone. It gives a good medium coverage and covers redness and discolouration. Lasts at least 9 hours on me with no primer. Gives a semi matte finish upon application. After several hours I get some slight shine on my nose but never bad enough to need to touch up or even blot! I have dry skin and it works great for me. Very happy with it and the packaging is hygienic and practical. Blends easily with my fingers and doesn't look cakey on the skin.
The Lioele Beyond The Solution BB cream is, in a word, okay. It goes on very nicely and feels hydrating to start with. The lasting power is a bit cruddy, however. Now, I know for a BB cream to last more than 4-5 hours is quite impressive. After two, it was starting to crack on me and dry patches were exacerbated. This is really unusual as I moisturise and prime before I put ANYTHING on my skin. At least it has good SPF. Overall, a bit disappointed.
I was a bit sad seeing a low rating review for my beloved bb cream. This is by far my fav bb cream. I was in need of bb cream that does not have SPF so that it would not give any white cast on my face when taking flash photographs! I have combination oily skin and this bb cream stays all day on my face , I did use a powder to set it and also UD all nighter. But overall, compare to my other bb cream that i own (missha perfect cover bb cream and brtc jasmine bb cream) i would say this is the least dewy and the best at controlling oil which is what i want from a bb cream. I will usually just use one or one and a half depending on my skin need that day. The coverage is very buildable as well. It does not break me out but enhance my skin appearance!!!!
Try this stuff, if u r hesistent, buy the sample pack first like what i did before purchasing the full size! I am going to try the tripe solution one as i heard great things about it as well.
This BB cream is wonderful, it suits my skin tone perfectly and covers up my acne scarring enough without being too heavy on my face. I'd definitely recommend it for people who want a medium coverage BB cream that isn't too heavy or too light.
Found this to be too drying and too heavy for my skin. It looked caking and unnatural. It just wasn't comfortable at all for me to wear. If you prefer a heavy coverage foundation, then you may like this. I prefer light to medium.
I imagine this would work wonders for dry skintypes, but for my normal-ish skintype it is just too dewy.
I like how it initially applies and looks after I lightly powder, but in about 3-4 hours this stuff is just melting off my face. I've blotted about 5 times so far and I'll probably have to blot a few more times.
I've worn this several times, with and without a primer and I don't see any difference either way.
Color match was OK for NC25 skin.

Would you buy this product again - No
I tried using this product again and I have to say I have a change of heart. This has become yet another favorite which I opt for for nights out when SPF is not a factor. I just love the way this makes my skin look and feel. I would still prefer a lighter colour (I like to embrace my fair complexion) but I can still get away with using this product. As for the once mentioned greasiness, my skin seems to love it now. I am not sure if this change is due to a change in my skin as winter has progressed or having opened the tube a few months ago only to neglect all season so now when I use it is no longer as fresh. Either way, my skin seems pretty happy. I now understand the initial raves this product once received. Beyond the Solution covers pores quite nicely and evens out redness quite well. I would say this is definitely one of my heavier coverage BBs, lighter than Missha's Perfect Cover but not by much. I quite like that it is not heavily scented and the boyfriend agrees. I hate those moments when he kisses my cheek only to pull back with a disappointed look on his face sighing "ewww, makeup" - which I suppose says something about the natural finish this product gives if he initially is unable to detect it.
I now find myself grabbing for this stuff quite a bit, favoring it over the heavily scented Perfect Cover and Skin79 offerings (which remain favorites but the smell, my god the smell!), and when I want more coverage than my beloved Holika Holkia Aqua Petit Jelly BB can provide. This product is great for photos leaving no detectable white cast, it will last an entire night for me and somehow manages to perfect my skin-tone and overall complexion without looking like I wear makeup. It also has not broken me out after nights when I stupidly go to bed without washing my face (a bad habit, I know). I now kinda love this product but I consider it to be more of a tinted moisturizer/foundation rather than a BB as I still see room for improvement. I wish this was a lighter colour, I wish this had SPF and I wish this had the usual bells and whistles that come with other BBs. My remaining complaints about this product seem to be addressed and remedied in Leoele's second release, Triple the Solution. I will be picking up a tube of Triple the Solution once I use up at least two of my current BBs, I am starting to feel like a bit of a BB hoarder.
Yikes, this is far far far too orange for my skin. I am not sure what I am in terms of Mac colouring as I have never been matched, but to give you an idea of my skintone, I have a hard time finding drugstore foundations that are light enough however Missha's perfect cover in 21 seems to match me perfectly. Even if I were to cut the stuff with another product, I feel the orange/brown colour would still show on my skin. Lioele's Beyond the Solution seemed a bit heavy and greasy to me, but I have super dry skin so that might be an unfair assessment. I gave it to my mother and it matches her perfectly and evens out her skintone, apart from the places where she has rosasia. Even if this product did match my colouring, I dont think I would repbuy as I am not a fan of the texture, it seems to be lacking a certain amount of slip which I quite enjoy in my Missha BB. I love the packaging of this stuff however, super cute and super hygienic. I guess BB creams are really a matter of personal preference and lucking out with the colour.
Great product but has more of a yellow undertone. I usually stick with the grey undertone bb creams because of my light skin, but I am sure this cream would be perfect for those with yellow undertones in their skin. Love the pump!
