Wishtrend Blind Test: BB Creams

This is a super overdue post!!

I received the BB cream samples back in DEC’11 and I’m only blogging about it now. >~<

 

Firstly, a swatch of all the 5 samples. You can see that all 5 samples differs by color and texture. Some with yellow under tones, pink undertones, neutral tones. Some are creamy, some are thick and some are runny.

 

I did a half face swatch for the samples. Surprisingly, D is not as white as I thought it would appear on my face. It actually have good coverage too and brightens up my complexion.  A blends in well with my skin tone and have average coverage. B has good coverage, brightens up my skin tone. C blends well but coverage is average. E’s coverage is quite good but the shade is actually a little too light for me.

I would say B and D is the better ones in terms of coverage. However B wins in terms of texture and smell. D has quite a strong smell.

 

Here’s the full face makeup with the various BB creams as bases. Powders used are all the same. XD

There are 13 other bloggers involved in the test too!

Check out the overall results here!

Skin 79 Lovely Girl BB Cream

New Release from Skin 79!

Lovely Girl BB Cream!

 

Received the Lovely Girl BB Cream in a lovely colorful box. XD

 


In it includes the new Lovely Girl BB cream plus a shimmer puff in a lovely sweet packaging.

 


Loving the retro pink packaging.

 


Star of the post: Lovely Girl BB Cream.

In it’s simple sweet pink packaging.

 


Description list of the BB cream.

It aims to provide moisture to the skin, soothes redness and irritation. Good for sensitive skin.

 

Color of the BB Cream is slightly to the grey side.

 

Texture of the BB cream is actually creamy yet light.

 

It evens out skin tone and brightens up the skin.

This is only spread out, not blended into the skin properly yet.

 

Coverage: I would say coverage is light to medium. It does even out the skin tone but flaws are not fully covered.

Staying Power: Staying power for this BB cream is relatively good. I would say it last for a good 6 to 7 hours.

Oil Control: Thumbs up for this BB cream on oil control part. My face stays matte throughout the day with only minimum shine near the end of the day.

Overall Rating: I would rate this BB cream a 3.5 out of 5. It’s worth a 4 but I am not really a fan of the scent of this BB cream though. It has a slight plastic smell to it. I won’t recommend this to someone who needs coverage but would definitely recommend this to someone who needs oil control. It is definitely suitable for sensitive skin. XD

 

Exclusively available at Watsons @ $21.90.

Review: Freshel Moist Lift BB Cream

Today I’m going to review the Moist Lift W Cream with SPF 23 PA ++ from Freshel! Freshel BB creams comes in 2 variants and the other one is the White C W Cream UV which has higher SPF and whitening properties.

Like most BB creams, it’s meant to be an all in one product which can act as a moisturizer, sunblock and MU base.

Here’s a close look at the BB cream itself. Unlike most BB creams, it has a yellowish tone to it which is more suited to Asian skin tones.

Here’s my ratings on the BB cream:

Blendability: 4/5

Coverage: 2/5

Lasting Power: 3/5

The cream is easy to spread and I like how it evens and brighten up my skin tone. However, the coverage is really light. It’s not good enough to cover up my acne scars and spots. Hence it’s unable to be a foundation for me but more as a base. Lasting power is average about 3 before blotting.

I think it’s a relatively good base to use, the cream does feel light so it’s ok to pile on powder foundation for coverage.

Overall rating is a 3/5.

 

This BB cream can be found in Watsons at $33.

There’s a promo still going on till 27th July!

Drink Culture

Attended an event at Drink Culture.

 

I love the deco of the place!

 

Here’s me~ XD

 

Comfy sofas! I would love to have something like that in my future home if I will ever have one. LOL.

 

Logo printed on the chairs. It gives a very vintage feel I think.

 

Here’s the bar! Super nice! If only the bar I worked at was this nice. LOL.

 

Another shot of the bar~

 

We had a demo session during the event, showcasing the how the products actually work in such a way that it’s good for our skin.

 

First up was on oil based MU remover. It’s good to use an oil cleanser that actually can mix with water so that it can remove the dirt/makeup efficiently and not clog our pores.  The milky one is the one which mixes well with water.

 

And here’s another one on facial cleansers. These 2 cleansers are mixed with sodium chloride, the closest thing to the sweat that are produced from our sweat glands. A good cleanser would be able to dissolve the sodium chloride. But if the cleanser became lumpy after mixing with the sodium chloride, it means that it can’t really cleanse our face well. Imagine that lump white stuff on our face, and the fact that it will turn hard overtime. >< Time to test out the cleansers we used at home! If it turned lumpy as seen in the picture below, best to throw it out! LOL!

 

Last demo was on anti-oxidants! How can it help with pigmentation? Let’s see with our own eyes! Here’s a sheet of paper stained by iodine.

 

Add the drop of Anti-oxidant chemical on it and see what happens,

If only they have such instant effects on the pigmentations on our skin. ><

 

Here’s another random pic! My drink of the day, Desert Rose, a very refreshing drink.

 

With Michelle! XD

 

Kimberly and Charlene with the pearl curtains! Rusty was supposed to be in the photo too but she was looking at Michelle’s camera instead in this pic.

 

Here’s all three of them gorgeous ladies!

 

And here’s one with Rusty and Michelle! Group photo of all 5 of us is with Michelle.~

 

Received a goodie bag at the end of the event which includes skincare samples, a BB cream and a cleansing oil which was used in the demo. Will be reviewing the products in a separate post! So look out for it!

I really like the environment of Drink Culture, the furnishing and atmosphere. Will be going back again! XD
