I actually like the gold label better than the pink label because it has a light peachy tint. There seems to be oil control even though it claims to be for normal/dry skin types. I have oily/combo. The pink label had a greyish pink tint which somewhat bothered me. The gold version seems to be a bit darker than the pink one. It had less coverage than the pink label, but it made my skin more natural. I recommend this gold label over the pink one!^^
I bought the full size version of VIP Gold after trying it out in sample size against the Hot Pink BB cream by Skin79. Although the Gold is targeted at dry/normal skin, I've found it controls oil a lot better than the Hot Pink, which is targeted at oiler skin types.
I use this product after a light moisturiser and apply concealer/powder after. The cream has a medium coverage, evens out redness nicely and is a perfect match for my fair/medium skin. It makes my skin look bouncier and smoother in texture after application, and requires slightly less product than a normal foundation.
Unlike some other BB creams I've tried, I have had no problems with my skin reacting to it. I'd definitely purchase again. 5 stars!
I like the concept behind BBcreams, but unfortunately, this product gave my sensitive skin horrible cystic acne. FYI: I tried this off and on for 2 years. Though I got to say I preferred using this product during the summer because it's light enough versus using it in the winter because the whitish overcast it gives my face, makes my face really pale.
I like this BB cream a lot. I have super sensitive and dry skin. My skin didn't react to it. It's moisturizing but doesn't leave me shiny, just a nice, subtle dewy glow. I also like how comfortable it is to wear, especially for the medium coverage. To me, it's weightless. My fair complexion needs the SPF and my age appreciates the skin benefits :) And like everyone else states it oxidizes and matches my skin tone perfectly. My only qualm is that I can't see how much product I've gone through (compared to a glass foundation bottle) but I'll just purchase another ahead of time to prevent running out. :)
This is my first BB cream and I really like it! Matches my skin nicely, doesn't give me dry patches, has SPF and ingredients to improve the skin, and doesn't seem to be breaking me out. Definitely will repurchase if it continues to work this well. I'm using it instead of foundation- hopefully I won't have to buy foundation again.
OoooOooOooh I like this! I think I like this more than my Missha Perfect Cover, which up to this point I thought would remain my favorite BB.
Skin79 Gold comes out a scary beige/grey colour and when I dab it on my skin I think there is no way it will ever match. I am always pleased to be proven wrong however. This colour actually matches me pretty darn well. The consistency is more slick than Missha's and Leole's Beyond the Solution, and feels far less heavy on the skin. When I wear this product I feel my skin can breathe. My skin feels soft to the touch, not oily or producty and I have not noticed any transfering on my clothing or scarves which is always appreciated. This product has a light scent that quickly dissipates which I also quite like, some BBs have scents that last all damn day, something I cant say I enjoy. It covers my skin just enough to look even and healthy. It does a decent job of taking away the few blotches of red I have acquired thanks to Toronto winds this winter without having to pile loads of product on my face. It does not highlight dry patches as far as I can tell, but I use my Nuitrogina Oil Free moisturizer about twenty minutes before applying my BB so I cant be sure if this is an added bonus from using this product or not. The coverage is not matte nor is it dewy to my eyes, my skin simply looks evened out, very healthy and plump, if that makes any sense. It looks younger I suppose is what I am trying to say. I would not say my skin looks perfect but it does look as close to perfect as one could hope without looking like they have piled on layers of makeup.
I am super happy I bought this product and will be buying it again when it runs out. I am curious as to how it will hold up in warmer months however, given it is pretty moisturizing, I fear it may slip off - we shall see.
The packaging is super cute and super sanitary. Nice! I wish more companies would make use of pumps! If you buy this product make sure to look on YouTube to learn how to take the package apart when it appears you are running out, turns out people are tossing away upwards of 50% of their product due the packaging.
Another important note: this product can cause some nasty pimples. Be sure to thoroughly remove it before heading to bed otherwise you risk some surprises in the morning. I find Clean and Clear's foaming makeup remover does a great job at removing this - nice given it is cheaper and easier to find than products specifically marketed for the removal of BBs.
UPDATE: Mon, Feb 4, 2013
I have been experimenting with new BBs as of late and decided to try this one out again. I still quite love it, only the shade is too dark for my skin at this time of year. I could probably get away with wearing it, only I like embracing my pale complexion when I have it, so I will be putting this in my warmer weather makeup collection (along with the Hot Pink Label as it too is too dark) and will look forward to using it in the summer. I have been bouncing between Lioele's Beyond the Solution when I want heavier coverage and more moisturization; Holika Holika's Aqua Petit Jelly BB in shade 1 when my skin is behaving; and Skinfood's Red Bean BB in shade 1 (my latest acquisition - lovely shade match, great coverage/texture/moisture) as of late and find the formulations and colours work ok for my dry and pale winter skin.
On my fourth bottle of this now. This thing is wonderful - simply wonderful! At the first pump, the colour is simply greyish but once it is blend into the skin, it settled into my natural skin tone. It is extremely compatible with my dry skin - it hydrates my skin without making it shiny or oily looking and it left behind a very dewy, youthful look. It does oxidized throughout the day though, but it doesn't bother me because I would dusk a light layer of powder over it and it looks the same for me.
omgosh i love this stuff! truly an all-in-one wonder! (and boy have i shpped around for bb creams). i dont even really need anything on top, but do add a teeny bit of concealer and powder if i am going out. just be careful to not overdose when you press the dispenser - way too much comes out. start with half a dose and add more as necessary. seriously, why do women cover their faces in foundation when you get all the coverage (for the average face) you need?! AND other benefits that foundation doesnt provide, to boot. beats me!
Oh how I love this stuff. I have fair skin with warm undertones. It's dry and flaky around the chin, nose, and cheeks, but oily on my forehead. I just love how my skin feels after putting this on. It doesn't set into any lines or look cakey. It's very natural looking on my skin.
For day I can wear just the BB w/some mascara. I will a put pur minerals pressed powder over for more coverage or in the summer when I get oily.
My only complaint is the packaging, it is such a waste for what you actually get. I don't order directly from the company site, it's too expensive. I found a retailer on Amazon that sells the legit product. Be careful there are many fakes out there. People have sites to help you tell what is real vs. a fake product.
I got this BB cream a month ago. Very moisturizing, not too rich, medium coverage and nice texture to put on my face. I feel I treat my skin really nice to put this cream since it has quite nice ingredients for whiting, wrinkles, and vitamins. It also make my skin very natural because its sheer looking with medium coverage. Your skin colour is almost transparent through the cream even I use a little bit of loose power. I think this is really good BB cream with all the nourishment that it can gives.
