Because of it's pink understone is not very friendly on people with yellow understone, this BB cream is not very popular in Asia. In Hong Kong, China and Japen, they sell Water Fuse, V7, Primium and Renewalist which all gear towards neutral or yellow skin tone. So, I'd like to agree with a previous review that black label is more for white people :-)
i am an NC25-NC30. i have sensitive, hormonal cystic acne prone skin, oily t-zone and dry cheeks. some hyper pigmentation on cheeks. when i get upset my cheeks get red and stay red for the day and even until the next day sometimes.
I've been clear for 3mos and decided i didn't need to use much makeup anymore. i tried water fuse and premium. i bought water fuse without trying this one bc it wasn't available. when it became available i tried it for a week (indoors) and it went on flawlessly, my skin looked and felt like velvet! it was matte and healthy looking, no oil all day, excellent coverage i didn't even need concealer, and it helped a few blemishes that were starting up. i loved it!! and i decided to go back to sephora and trade my water fuse for the black label....
BUT THEN... i got in the car and looked in the mirror and saw my face in the natural light and i was HORRIFIED!! i was PINK!! straight up pink! like i decided it would be fun to use a sheer pink blush all over my face instead of a beauty balm! omg... horrified!
i was already in the car, so i had to wipe it off with "say yes to cucumbers" wipes and immediately applied the water fuse! i was so upset my face stayed red! thankfully the water fuse covered up most of it.
note to self: ALWAYS check makeup in natural light! omg... *face palm*
love it! very good coverage, hasn't made me break out. covers so well i don't even bother with concealer. moisturizing, but kind of dries to a matte finish on my dry skin, reminds me A LOT of skin79 hot pink bb cream. it might be nary a shade lighter, not much. has a bit of a gray tone to it like skin79 bb creams, so if you dislike that, you'll dislike this stuff. however, as it's the only thing that makes my mediterranean skin look fantastic, i LOOOOVE it. if you like the color & texture of skin79 hot pink, but hate the bulky packaging, this is a way better alternative. it also lacks the triclosan in the skin79 products, so basically i've totally converted.
similar-ish in price, anyhow!
I have tried many foundations and BB creams on the market and this is my HG! It is very moisturizing in the winter time and creates a natrual glow on my face while effectively covers the acne marks. I put Benefit dandelion after applying this BB cream and I consistently got compliments.It is a little hard to buy from US but I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a BB cream that serves as a moisturizer-foundation-sunscreen all in 1.
For reference, I am Asian ranging from NC20-25 depending on the season.

I have used this BB cream for over a year, so this is my first review on my thoughts of this. :) Black Label is a greyish-pink undertone BB cream that doesn't match my yellow undertoned skin very well. The texture is also quite thick making it a little difficult to blend, but the coverage is very good. It evens out my skin tone and covers my blemishes well enough so that I can skip concealer, but I still need concealer for my dark circles. I haven't seen any long-term effects on wrinkles or fine lines, but I wasn't really expecting any. Overall, I would recommend this for normal/combination skin with pink undertones.
Great all-in -one product. I use this when am having a lazy day, use it as a moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation. I always like products that are supposed to enhance the skin, and with the ingredients in this products I think this one does just that. The consistency is quite thick, but once you start spreading out it kind of melds with the skin. Colour is on the fairish side, with slight pink undertones, however it works. Im really beginnin to love this more and more. Plus is reasonably priced
This is my new HG BB cream. Etude Houses Magic BB cream used to be my favourite but I don't think I can go back after trying this. The coverage is really good, it's not greasy, leaves my skin looking dewy and it just plain great! The packaging isn't the prettiest thing around but it's forgivable. I will re-purchase this because I think it's a great foundation, I'm unsure about the other claims it makes. I never go to BB cream as a skin care product.
This stuff is pretty good. It covers up blemishes and freckles just fine, and gets rid of uneven skin tone. Dr Jart doesn't clog my pores or anything, and it's just slightly moisturizing for dry skin. The product is a little to pastey and difficult to smooth over skin.
Please see my review here!
NB: I wrote this review about six months ago. I no longer use this stuff.
This has SPF 25 as opposed to the paltry SPF 8 of the silver label. Texture is the same, though: somewhat thick and pasty. It feels creamy enough but needs to melt a little onto your skin before it can be easily blended. Unlike the silver label version, this one is supposed to be whitening, and has a slight fragrance that reminds me of the Neutrogena peels (very sweet, slightly rotten fruit and flowers).
This also can look too pale on me if I don't sheer it out and use a medium-toned powder on top (like NARS' Eden). Wears well like the other version and better than tinted moisturizers. Unfortunately both the black and silver versions ended up making my pores look huge and breaking me out. This stuff is also really expensive and it's near-impossible to find a full ingredients listing. Wouldn't repurchase.
