My stash of… BB Cream!

20131103-235357.jpg

You got it right!! Time again for my stash review – my stash is growing day by day!!!!

Today I’m gonna run through my stash of BB creamsss!! You may see CC cream or foundation appearing too though.. LOL!

First in the list is none other than Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion! If you are a regular beauty boxes subscriber you will not be a stranger to this great products! Most beauty subscription boxes recommend this to their users!! I happen to be one of the many who got the chance to try them and fall in love with it after trying! Love it even more after being advise by a makeup artist on how to use it to cover blemishes during my SWW shoot~!!

(from the second pic you can see I have been using it very diligently huh~ HAHA!!)

A new-concept cushion-type whitening BB for 6 effects (Whitening + Moisturizing + Sunscreen + Water resistant + Soothing + Makeup Effects)! Yes, 6-in-1, used to be just 5-in-1 i think!! I’m not too sure which version I’m using because I bought it on Qoo10 and they shipped direct from Korea. Packaging is different from Singapore Laneige before the change.

Nonetheless, they are still as good! I’m already using my 2nd refill.. 😀

Here you can see, the side with Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion is slightly fairer and my freckles has lightened quite a bit!! I feel that is has brighten my chubby face yet doesn’t look too ghostly! Can’t see the diff?? Try comparing the eye area and freckles.. 🙂

Some user may find the coverage not that fantastic but I find it great! The trick (advised by Eric Tan, the MUA) to get better coverage is to DAP. Dap on area where you want better coverage (ie: freckles)! That’s all~ It doesn’t turn cakey It doesn’t look oily after half a day. It has SPF50 PA++. Gives a dewy look. What more can I ask for…?

And not long ago, Laneige launch their NEW BB Cushion Pore Control! I tell you…  This is AWESOME! Not only it gives a better coverage, it minimize pores!!

These BB cushion is good for going on date, going to work, going shopping or even going for tea (coffee if you like it!)!! That natural dewy look~! I can’t resist!!

Yay or Nay?? Definitely a BIG YAY for me!! I love how I look when i just put it on! Even after a day at work, I still look decent! Oxidization doesn’t really ruin the look.. If you’re keen to try, probably you can head down to any Laneige boutique to take a look!

Ok, now for my all-time favorite! .. wait.. I mean above mentioned are my favorite too!! This is probably the pioneer among the other BB cream in my favorite list! Ettusai’s BB Mineral Cream is the first to be added to my favorite list before exploring any others..

It’s a BB cream that gives you coverage while treating your skin at the same time. Love it because it covers, spreads easily and is so lightweight yet it works hard to keep to your skin baby soft.

It also contains 6 different kinds of moisturizing ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, while also preventing acne with our star ingredient, AC-Control Oil. Contains SPF 30 PA ++.

And I totally agree with what was stated! The color of the BB cream is suitable for Asian skin and it stays matte even after lunch time! It blends really well with my complexion, good coverage(!), oil control(!) and even out skin tone!

Not long after, Ettusais launch the whitening version – BB Mineral WhiteAn all-in-one makeup base, concealer and foundation in cream form that gives coverage and brightens skin by 120%!

IMO, this is too fair for me. I don’t know if it is suppose to be like this or I bought the wrong color (too light)~ Either one, I still prefer the BB Mineral Cream (pink tube) than this BB Mineral White (white tube). Anyway, I saw on Instagram that Ettusais is gona launch a new bb cream soon has launch another new bb cream.. gel type! Definitely looking forward to to using that soon…!! *excited*

I thought it was pretty greyish at first but as I apply I think it kinda neutralized and blends with my complexion. On pigmented area, you just need an extra touch to cover them and you’re good! Coverage is good in this case (with that extra touch)..

20140411-094212.jpg

Although the pics I am showing you in this post are mainly a half face application but you can always use your hand to cover the other half that you don’t want to see!!! hahahaha.. Like that, you will be able to visualize the effect better.

20140411-093227.jpg

Perfect Pore Cover is what this BB Cream is named. So it should cover pores right? Do you think it did its job?? Me? I think it did a great job! My complexion looks smoother eh! flawless?? O_O hahaha.. ($$$: S$29 for 45ml)

Next in line that caught me by surprise is Touch in SOL Pure Dew Water Drop BB Cream!! This BB cream is safe to use on sensitive and trouble skin with SKIN FILM SYSTEM for the excellent calming skin! Not only that, it’s long lasting from sweat and water for all day long.

Water radiance textures, bright color and excellent coverage for skin flaw but also features gorgeous skin radiance through water holding system. Sun protection? Of course!! This bb cream comes with SPF 36!!

The texture of this bb cream is sooo.. watery yet not runny. creamy yet not sticky!! Very lightweight BB cream..

20140418-232714.jpg

You can really feel the moisturizing agent on your skin and it looks very natural too!

Man.. Although BB cream are getting “outdated” but I’m still loving them so much!! Recently I redeemed Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore BB cream on SampleStore and I thought it might just be another so-so product..

drjart

Ya, you can tell I ain’t prepared to showcase this right!? It perform better than expected and I thought I should make a note!

Well, the coverage isn’t very good but it can cover pores better than regular bb. oh wait! that’s not the reason i’m attracted to it! I like it because after a day at work, my bb cream is still covering my pores and looking fresh! If you’re keen to cover some pores, quickly head to SampleStore now to redeem the sample sachet before it goes out of stock!! Retail price is about S$44 (40ml) and available for your purchase at SaSa and Guardian if I’m not wrong..

So far these are the few BB creams that I’m pretty satisfied with.. I will be updating this post periodically when I find a good BB/CC cream to share!!

So stay tune!!
