I really wanted to like this, because I'd heard so many good things about it. After having used it for the past four months though, I think I am going to have to shop around for a new BB Cream.
First of all, the packaging on this product is quite cute--very girly, but still functional. I like that it has a pump dispenser. You do not need a lot of product at all, so this will last a very long time. I get medium coverage from this, which is about as much as I ever need. However, it felt quite thick and seems to clog my pores, which has led to slight breakouts and redness. At the end of the day, it seems to have a particularly unsavory effect on my skin, making it feel kind of sticky--definitely not what I want, especially for summer months.
I'm glad I found this for a good price (my advice is to shop around on eBay!), but as I mentioned at the beginning of my review, I'm going to be looking for another one soon.

I also got this from prettyandcute.com and found it to be really awesome. The formula is light which means that it can be layered with a primer/sunscreen/moisturizer underneath if you wanted to. I have a lot of issues with redness and found that this bb cream works great alongside MUFE's HD primer in green. I would recommend this to anyone who is new to bb creams.

I got the 30ml tube from prettyandcute.com. I am sure it is new but the cap isn't air tight so tube becomes puffy even when "closed".
So far my impression on BB creams is " thick and pale". In terms of that, Lioele's BTS is in between Legere (balmy) and Missha (light) . still it feels like putting concealer all over my face. You pat it on quickly, never rub or massage. It gives me an opaque coverage which I didn't like initially because I thought looked lifeless. but a few hrs later it blended with my body heat and natural oils with a luminous glow. Much better!
I would say this is a spring/summer product. It is very good for evening out redness/discoloration/light pigmentation. The pale look can be toned down with a bronzer or darker set powder, but if your shade is NC30 and up you might want to stay away.

I've tried a ton of BB creams and I've got to say this one is one of the better BB creams that I've tried.
It has a smooth, creamy consistency that makes it really easy to put on and blend all over my face. It comes in a hygienic pump too, which helps to get bacteria out, but at the same time, it can be a bit of a nuisance when you get to the bottom half because it is in a tube.
Color wise, it's honestly a bit light, maybe NC-20ish, but if you wait around half an hour the BB cream will mix with your skin's natural oils/oxygen/etc and it'll match your skin tone a lot more. I usually wait around 20 minutes to let the BB cream before brushing on a light dusting of powder so the color looks more human-ish.
Coverage wise, I would say it has a medium converage that's buildable. It'll cover up most red blotches or uneven skin tones and for any areas that need a little extra, just pat on a dot over the area and it would be all covered up. It's not enough to cover up undereye circles or especially red blemishes so you might want to consider a concealor. Otherwise, for those with perfect skin, just half a pump is probably enough to keep you looking porcelain.
I haven't noticed any significant changes to my skin while using this BB cream, but I don't think it broke me out any. The BB cream has a very medicinal smell that takes quite a few uses before you get used to it. It was a bit of a turn off at the very beginning for me, since I prefer unscented products and I worried if the smell would stay even after I put it on.
The only one defactor I would say this BB cream has is the lack of SPF. Usually a "BB cream" would mean the cream covers these three areas: moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation/base. This BB cream is marketed as a non-oxidizing base that won't irritate the skin. Most BB creams I've used have a pretty high sun protection, the fact that this one has none is a little surprising. I do like the fact that it promises not to oxidize on your skin, but I wish it offered my skin a little shield from the sun too.
Overall, I would buy it again... if I can find it again for a low price. Otherwise, since most retailers are selling this for around $19, it's not worth the money. A regular foundation would be cheaper and closer match to my skin tone.
EDIT: 07/18/2011, I've been noticing lately while wearing this that my face seems a little orange, which is strange because this product claims not to oxidize. It's summer, so I don't think my skin got lighter or anything so this is weird.

HG HG HG! I love this! First off, the pink and white packaging is adorable. The only thing I would gripe about is that it is a pump, and too much can come out. I lightly tap it to get the perfect amount. I use this as my concealer, as it is the perfect shade, but you can use it as a foundation. It leaves a dewy look and looks absolutely amazing. I got it for about $15 online, which I don't think is a bad price because it contains a lot of product- I can see this lasting for at least a year. I will definitely repurchase this!

I have tried over 16 Japanese, Korean and Tawainese BB creams and this is the best out of them all. I am an NC15-20 with golden undertones, normal/combo sensitive skin.
PACKAGING: Perfect. It comes in a pretty pink and white tube with a pump dispenser, so not only is the packaging cute as heck, it's hygienic and practical too. I also have a travel size version of this BB cream (10ml) to take with me whilst travelling. Comes in the same pretty packaging but minus the pump.
FEATURES: This BB cream is designed to make the skin feel smooth and look clear and natural. It contains bisabolol, licorice acid derivatives and allantoin component to soothe the skin and jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, hyaluronic acid and marine collagen to moisturize. Doesn't say anything about SPF protection (although it does contain titanium dioxide) so I'm not too sure about that.
COLOUR MATCH: BB creams are notoriously difficult to find a perfect colour match with. Some BB creams I've tried have made me look grey, pink, orange...this one does none of that. It is an almost *perfect* match for my skin colour. If it was slightly more golden/yellow toned it would've been spot on. However, it looks look extremely similar to my natural skintone and does not have any pink or grey tones whatsoever, it's pretty neutral. I'd describe it as a light neutral beige.
APPLICATION AND COVERAGE: It blends very easily on my ski, although it can emphasize dry flakes if you don't moisturize beforehand (isn't that the same with all makeup products though?). I apply 2 layers for optimum coverage as I have freckles on my nose that I hate and some blemishes on my chin and cheek area. 1 layer gives light coverage, 2 gives medium. I apply a little bit of concealer on big blemishes for a full coverage look though. My face looks near-flawless when I wear this BB cream, without looking like I've caked makeup on my face. It looks like my own skin but 100000000 times better. Doesn't look thick or cakey at all. Evens out my skintone, diminishes redness.
EFFECT: It makes my skin look brighter, whiter (not geisha white, but peaches and cream white) and clearer. I cannot stop staring at my skin in the mirror whenever I wear this BB cream, it looks so smooth and porcelain! I feel really confident about my skin when wearing it, which is quite a major thing for me as I'm normally concious of how horrible my skin is.
LASTING POWER: I apply at 7AM most days ontop of primer and get no oil break-through until about 3PM. Even once the oil does start breaking through, the BB cream itself does not budge. For that reason, I can wear this on nights out aswell - it's not just a day time makeup product for me. I wore this in the middle of summer in Korea last year and it was sweltering, but my BB cream held up all day without melting off. Definately holds up well in different climates.
BREAKOUTS/IRRITATION: I have very sensitive and breakout-prone skin but this BB cream doesn't break me out or irritate my skin.
This is a must-have product for me, I don't know how I would live without it (I never ever thought I would say that about a makeup product!). It's definately HG.
Here's a pic of me wearing the BB cream with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish ontop:-
(BTW - the user bellow is not reviewing the 'beyond the solution bb cream' she is reviewing the 'triple solution bb cream' which is different to this one. However, I agree with her that the triple solution bb cream is nice too! Lioele has the best BB creams ^^ )

My favorite bb cream and only bb cream I have eve used is lioele triple the solution. It has 3 healing powers, lighten, prevent wrinkles, and has sod for protection. Its a tad bit too light for my skin, I usedto be nc40 when I wore mac, but I think I have gotten a little lighter since then. I only use about half a pump after I moisturize using an emulsion and essence. I don't really need to conceal dark circles because its good at covering . Its good with oil absorption throughout the day which is good considering that I have normal/combo skin and I work 8-9 hours a day. I usually prefer not to touch up makeup either cus im lazy and I very much dislike adding more makeup cus it will just settle in your pores(makeup in general) .I don't have issues with break outs or acne. However I do break out once a month during my hormonal disfunction! But when using this product, I don't even know if im about to start my period anymore because I don't break out! It says it has yogurt in it which can prevent blemishes from forming. And it also faded some of my minor scars I had from picking at pimples -_- I know it's bad but I can't help it sometimes. As far has the lightening goes, it does even out my skin tone and I notice that my skin glows after my morning wash. I would say that it has gotten About a shade lighter. I forgot to add that it is lightweight and does not feel heavy on the skin. I bought this product because of the positive reviews that it has gotten. Even if it was only a few reviews. All of them were positive and beneficial. Most of the reviews stated that it helped with their cystic break outs and prevented them even! In my opinion, it is wow! I would definitely go for this than the beyond the solution because of the healing benefits that it has over having none at all.

I though I would love it since I had read lots of positive comments before buying, but I was wrong.
The package was really nice and hygiene (the cream comes out of a small pump)
First things I noticed: it smell super weird, something like...chinese balm! It was think and not easy to blend. The most important thing was it does NOT do anything to my skin, no coverage, no brighten, absolutely nothing. It was even cakey and not natural. It left me with a grey cast (people say it would adapt to your skin colour after awhile, but not for me!). The grey cast made me look old, tired and "dead". Also it made my skin more oily than other makeup products.
I tried it 7 times without and with the help other products, but there was no way to make it work for me.
The price was similar to the price of Bourjois foundations, so I think it was expensive in the sense that Bourjois foundations worked well for me
Never purchase again ofc!

Korean Lioele Photogenic Mix Concealer Review
I must say for a first time user of a Korean product concealer this is very good. It covers blemishes like past and present cystic acne well. Just place a primer before applying this concealer for added staying power. Your scars blemishes is almost completely covered.
It has a light beige color concealer (bigger) & a darker beige color concealer (smaller). Placed in a very tiny reflective pink square compact. You can mix or just use one that suits you.
It's creamy so it's best to use the warmth of your finger and dab on problem areas. Does not cake and does not get oily.
Package Quality 3 - I wish it is placed in an airtight container. I am always worried of it getting dry so I use a ziploc when I store it. I also always close the compact while applying on my face to prevent the concealer from drying.
Yes I would buy this product again.
NC 35 for reference.
