This unfortunately comes in one color and when I tried the sample for the first time, I knew I would not be able to use this. (You'll see the color below.) It was quite orangey. Besides the color, it was not moisturizing for me. It dries pretty matte, which I'm not so used to in a BB Cream. It does look like it has light to medium coverage. But due to the quite dryness of this BB Cream, it accentuated my fine lines in my face. Even if this comes out in other colors, I don't think I'd purchase this. The coverage and the function of this BB Cream is not worth the $56 price tag. I've seen better BB Creams for less than this. Unlike other BB Creams, this does not colormatch or blend to your skin tone well. So if you have oily skin, and your skintone matches this, you might give it a go. But personally I think you might be better off trying the Diorsnow UV Shield BB Cream SPF 50 PA+++ ($50). This also comes in one shade, a bit dark for my skin.
Definitely too orange for my skin....
Not sure you can tell, but where the I point, you can see that it did not blend in well and see the splotchy color difference. It looks quite dry....
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream ($39)
Smashbox comes with 5 different shades ranging from Fair to Dark in a squeeze tube.
It has SPF 35, it claims to moisturize, primes, perfects, controls oil, and protects for flawless skin on set and beyond. And if worn under foundation, it enhances the wear of makeup for up to eight hours.
I got the second lightest shade- light. I'm kind of on the fence on this one. As for the product itself, I think it's good. But if I compare this BB Cream to other BB Creams I have used, it's just alright... I've used better ones. The formula is very light, moisturizing, however it lacks in coverage. It's pretty sheer like a tinted moisturizer. If you don't have to cover up any flaws, than this would be okay. But for me I have hyperpigmentation that I'd like to cover up well. The formula is also not oily which is good and kept good oil control throughout the day. But since I've seen better, I probably won't re-purchase.
Finish is natural, but you can see that it's quite sheer.
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream ($13-$20 depending on where you buy & shipping)
From all the BB Creams I have ever used in my life (Faceshop, Skin79, BRTC, Etude, Skinfood, Missha, Somang, etc...), Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream is the best I have used and is now my absolute favorite!!! This one does not incorporate SPF, but they do have the SPF version- Triple the Solution which runs about $25- $35). This one goes on soooo smooth on your face and has medium full coverage. It is moisturizing. At the end of the day, my nose is a bit oily, but it's like that with any products I use. I can get away with not wearing concealer using this BB Cream. It goes on thick at first but quickly absorbs into your skin while still giving you the full coverage. This hides my hyperpigmentation! And leaves that Korean Celebrity like glowy but natural skin finish that I love! You can always set it or reduce the glow with powder. However, this comes in one color, so if you have really dark skin tone skin, this won't work for you. Although the big claim and big sell for Korean BB Cream was that it works to match and blend in with your skintones (which I'm guessing ranges of Asian skintones). My friend who is darker toned, she has used same BB Cream as I have and found that they still match her skin tone.
I would absolutely repurchase this and I highly recommend it. I bought mine for $13 + $7 shipping on Amazon (ships from Korea).
Goes on thick at first...
