I guess BB Creams need no further introduction since they're getting more popular, especially in Asian countries. But with the recent hype that BB Creams can improve pigmentation and also wrinkles, BB Creams have penetrated into western countries as well - well, that's something different, Asian cosmetics are getting more popular!
Honestly, I am not a big fan of BB Creams since there isn't one BB Cream in the market that suits my skin tone. Furthermore, most of the times, if I use BB Cream, it tends to oxidize faster than anything else I've applied on my face. At the end of the day, I always end up looking grey in instead of glowy.
I was skeptical about Skin79's Hot Pink BB Cream lately but luckily for me I have yet to purchase because I'm still with my Heynature BB Cream. I'll do a review later.
The other day, when I was at Watson at Pavilion, I was surprised to see Skin79 has finally became a drugstore brand.
Since I've always wanted to try out their BB Creams, I'm so glad that testers are provided for each different BB Creams.
Hence, I tested out the four famous BB Creams from Skin79 the other day when I was at Watson.
Not much comment on the texture since I haven't been exposed to a lot of BB Creams all my makeup life. LOLX! I'm really anally crazy, you see... I brought my makeup remover and tried the BB Creams right on the spot - since I don't intend to get any new BB Creams yet. These BB Creams feel light on my skin, in which, I guess, you'll only need a thin layer but coverage is like... a little below average but you can't slap on too much product or else, you'll end up looking like a clown!
I will try to describe each of the BB Cream, so, please bear with me if I can't do it perfectly since I did not buy each of them.
Skin79 Hot Pink
On the whole, this BB Cream is said to suit those with oily skin. I'm not sure since I'm quite skeptical about this one - wrinkle improvement? Perhaps, perhaps! The colour is slightly lighter than the gold version - it doesn't really suit my skin tone, yes, again!
I like this one if I were to compare to the other versions. The colour matches my skin tone quite well, of course before oxidation. I wore this one for the whole day and yes, indeed, it oxidized but not to the extent of turning grey. Hence, me likey! Gonna put it in my wishlist real soon!
Skin79 Total Absolute
Again, this BB Cream comes out quite light and I think if I slap this onto my skin, for sure I'll end up looking like a snowgirl. Gosh! If you are searching for BB Creams with pink undertone, well, this could be the right one for you!
Skin79 The Prestige
The Prestige comes out real light as Total Absolute too but the only difference is that it has yellow undertone which suits most of Asians skintones.
Well, that's it for BB Creams from Skin79. Lemme know how these BB Creams perform on your skin. I'll be glad since I need help in choosing the right BB Cream for my oily and pale skintone.
Do have a great day, people!
Be safe and healthy!
