I have been trying out a lot of different BB Cream, most of which are Korean. I have to say that this BB Cream has been one of my favourites.
It is very similar to the Revlon Colorstay foundation in my opinion and it is quite long last, although I recommend using primer and setting spray.

Unfortunaltey this BB Cream only come in 2 shades and I am using the lightest one which is similar in shade with the Revlon #180 Sand Beige. This BB Cream will give you a satin finish, which is again really close to the Revlon Colorstay finish.

To apply this BB Cream I like to use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. This BB Cream is water resistant and won't smudge or slide. It will give you medium to buildable full coverage, although it might end up looking a little cakey if you are not careful.

Overall, it's a really good BB Cream. The only thing thatbugs me about this BB Cream is the fact that it doesn't have SPF. I also don't like the packaging, because the air gets trapped inside the tube and when you open it some product will come out.

I got this after seeing all the hype on youtube and beauty blogs. Only 2 colors are available and I got the lightest color. It's a 35g tube that has a sponge applicator which i used just once since I felt that the application was not even and product tends to get wasted. It gives medium coverage but the thing I don't like is that it feels slightly heavy on my skin -- like I just plopped on a heavy moisturizer. Not good when you're oily skinned and live a in a tropical country.. :(

The texture is somewhat thick and not runny at all so I find that I tend to use a lot for one application. I rated it as somewhat expensive because of this aspect.

For those times that you get your photo taken a lot, I think this would be a good face base since it does not contain SPF (which gives a white cast in photos). Overall, I think it's okay but I wouldn't buy this again. I think I would get better value for money and coverage with the Etude House or Missha BB creams.

On Pretty and Cute Website:
Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream was produced by Mayumi Yasutomo, a newscaster, who desired to have a product that made her skin look flawless while on camera. This shine-free, oil-free and waterproof product was the perfect solution. The product itself is a lightweight formula allowing you to apply the amount of layer you would like without feeling like your skin is being weighed down. Micro- gold pearl hides scars and freckles. Soft focus powder uses light diffusion not to show wrinkles and makes skin smooth. Cover with thin film, and protect from dry and rough skin.

This is probably my favorite BB cream ever. The only drawback is the ingredient list, included are parabens, petroleum, and aluminum hydroxide (very bad chemicals.. causes cancer and etc). There are only two colors available, light ochre and ochre. Most BB creams from Asia are more suited for fair Asian skin. They both have a yellow undertone. I would recommend this for oily skinned girls with yellow undertones!!

Matte finish
Acts like a foundation
No SPF, can be worn for night time and for photographs
Flawless finish without looking cakey
Good for oily skin (I don't get oily for 5-6 hours, looks dewey more than oily)

No SPF (doesn't bother me, more versatile because can put sunscreen on)
Bad chemicals (parabens, petroleum, and aluminum)
Only two colors available
Expensive for the amount ($30-40 + shipping... online shops)
Hard to get (Japanese brand)

Would I re-purchase?

Although it comes in a small tube about with about 35g, I have had this BB cream for over a year and I still have quite a bit left (half) because a little goes a long way. I didn't like the tube packaging and actually put it in more of a jar and I use a foundation brush and a dense brush to blend it out instead of using the sponge that comes with the BB cream.. Sponges tend to soak up more product... I would definitely re-purchase even though it is really pricey. This BB cream is perfect for photographs and special occasions. I try not to wear this daily because its sooo beautiful!!!

I didn't give it a full 5 stars because of the chemicals and how expensive it is for just 35g...

UPDATE: After trying the newer foundations in the drugstore and the department store, there are wayyy better foundations for photography and etc than this. This isnt even essentially a "BB Cream" more like a foundation. I would'nt repurchase again because it is pricey and there are better foundations out there.
