I’ve ordered it off ebay for about US12$ with free shipping. It is available in 3 shades and I’ve got for myself the lightest one.
And now moving on to all the “promises” stated on the packaging :)
– excellent coverage
Not so excellent actually :) I’d say it’s a medium coverage, because it doesn’t conceal all my blemishes and you can still see my under eye veins. I don’t like layering this bb cream otherwise it looks like a mask on my face and it tends to accentuate all my fine lines by creasing. So make sure to apply a thin layer of this and top it with powder. This is how it works on my combination to dry skin :)
– sun protection
This is what I so love about this bb cream… While I was wearing it on a daily basis I noticed that my body was gradually getting a tan but my face remained pale lol So this stuff really works! So, I just skipped this bb cream for some time to get a little tan on my face also, because I don’t wear makeup everyday and it would look like “this face (or this head) doesn’t belong to this body” )))
– whitening effect and wrinkle care
Unfortunately while using it didn’t mention any. Maybe you should use it for a longer period to notice any changes…
– makes your routine easier by combining in it moisturizing and nutritive properties
While it feels moisturizing once applied on your face, it can accentuate all your dry patches after it sets on. You definitely need exfoliation and a moisturizer cream if your skin is dry and flaky, otherwise it won’t look good at all on you.
Let me show you the swatches:
This bb cream will definitely even out your skin tone but don’t expect a lot of coverage, a concealer is still needed. It blends effortlessly into your skin, I prefer using a sponge to apply it
Can’t say its lasting power is fantastic. It lasts for 3-4 hrs on my combination to dry skin before I need a touch up.
Another thing I have to mention, this bb cream tends to oxidize. I’ve tried all 3 shades available (I’ve ordered some samples before getting the full size) and all of them oxidize and become pinkish. You will notice it especially if your skin is olive or yellow undertoned. The higher the number of the bb cream, the pinkier it becomes. At least on me. And that’s not cool at all :) This is it’s biggest con I’d say.
Even if this bb cream looks grey-ish at first, anyways it turns to be more pink in a couple of hours. That’s why I chose the lightest shade, even if it oxidizes but it’s almost unnoticeable.
All in one I like this bb cream and I consider it as one of the best on the market for its price vs quality.
Not sure if I will repurchase it, but it’s definitely worth your attention. I quess those with normal skin and cool undertone will love it the most! :)
Hope you have an amazing day! :)
