This was the third or fourth Korean BB cream I've tried and between this and my Missha Perfect Cover, I'm set. It's creamy, hydrating and the coverage is medium, I'd say. I can see why this is one of the most popular BB creams. It's lightened my acne scars and I don't need to use anywhere near as much concealer as what I would usually. The colour oxidises to a natural shade on me, I'm roughly NC20. I'd rate the longevity approximately 6-8 hours, I prime and moisturise first. It works really well for me and I'd strongly recommend it.
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.

This is sort of a lipgloss-lipstick hybrid. It has amazing pigmentation and staying power. The colour range is decent. It smells like sour candy, which is appealing. I'd definitely repurchase again, it's the best gloss I've owned.
I really, really wanted to love this concealer, it's creamy and blends nicely. But it completely broke me out.
Oh my Goddd...this eyeshadow. Wonderful colour (I see no golden shimmer personally) and I'm going to be honest here, I prefer it to my MACS on the basis of, with a wet brush, it goes so creamy and slides on quite intensely. The MACS I have (two frosts and a matte) barely even come off the pot with a wet brush, it's ridiculous (that's how I like to apply my eyeshadow). The colour and intensity of this is great, it was my first Prestige shadow, I'm checking more out today!
