FOTD Ft Evangelist Nobuto BB Cream

IMG_3413.JPG
Today’s FOTD is a very simple look which features bright pink lips. The easiest way to wear bold bright colors on the lips is to keep the rest of the face simple and clean. This is so we can have the focus on the lips. Defining brows is a must in all sort of looks but you can keep the eyes clean like what I did.

I have received this Evangelist Nobuto BB Cream sample during the Tokey Luxey meet up last month. Have been trying it out for a couple of times and I like how it wears on the skin.

Here’s a swatch of the bb cream. The texture is towards the runny type and not too thick which makes it easy to blend during application. You won’t have situations where it looks as if you applied too much just because the product is too thick. Which means you can also apply more if you find that the coverage is not enough for certain areas.

Here’s a half face photo after applying the bb cream. You can see that it evens out the skin tone and it provides medium coverage to cover up redness and flaws. As I have mentioned, you can apply a little bit more product to up the coverage on required areas.

The shade Ochre No1 suits me just nice. This BB cream can be used as a makeup base or as your foundation. What I usually do is that I’ll set it with either a loose powder or a two way cake if I wanted more coverage.

A good base will brighten up your overall look and complements the colors you add on after. 🙂

The Evangelist Nobuto BB Cream is a top 3 product on Cosme and I think it lives up to that ranking!

White Label Premium Placenta’s Elastic White Skin BB Cream Review

I received the White Label BB Cream for review from BeautyDirect just after CNY and I have been using it since.

20140317-014241.jpg

The White Label BB cream comes with skincare benefits with the presence of the Premium Placenta contents which helps to keep the skin nourished and moisturised. It also comes with an SPF of 25 PA ++.

It comes in a small 30g tube which can last you for a very long time. I must also say that it is very affordable at $14.90.

The colour of this BB Cream is towards the yellow tone but when applied to the face, it will blend into the skin and brightens up and evens the skin tone.

Coverage of this BB Cream is light to medium.

The texture of this cream is a little thick and I also find that it dries up pretty fast when applied. Hence, I actually find myself to prefer applying this with a stippling brush instead of using my fingers as I do with other BB creams. I find that using a brush enable me to spread the product faster and more evenly on the skin.

The lasting power of this BB Cream is quite decent when set with a powder. I would say it last a good 6 hours.

It’s great for sensitive skin as my current thin skin did not react to it.

I find myself reaching out for this BB cream very often as it give a nice glowy natural finish and feels really light on the skin!

I rate this a 4.5/5! Would be full stars if the coverage and durability can be a little higher. But I will definitely purchase this when I’m done with it as I think it’s really good for daily use!

The White Label range is available on http://beautydirect.com.sg/ and at Plaza @ Cosme, Guardian, BHG and John Little.

I hope this review is useful!

Review: Klairs Illuminating Supple BB Cream

Hi all!

I’m back with a beauty product review!!

I was sent the Klairs Illumination Supple BB Cream from WishTrend 2 months back and have since used it enough for a proper review!
20130719-160535.jpg

This BB Cream comes in a 40ml slim tube which makes it easy to carry around! It also have SPF 40 PA ++ which is not too bad.

20130719-160542.jpg

Here’s a swatch of the BB Cream on black surface. It is of a light tone, and is suitable for most skin tones as it’s of a neutral tone.

20130719-160548.jpg

A swatch against the back of my hand. The texture of this BB cream is rather light yet still creamy. It blended in well and coverage is pretty good as it can cover up my redness.

20130719-160605.jpg

I blended it out thickly then thinly towards the left of the hand. A light layer give you that dewy look and if you need more coverage, just add on a bit more product and blend.

20130719-160612.jpg

Here’s me wearing the BB cream with just loose powder and a little blush. No filter on this photo, taken under natural light. It covers up my redness pretty well and even the skin tone well. Does not appear too pale as this BB cream blends with your skin color.

Coverage: 4/5
Texture: 3.5/5
Oil Control: 2.5/5

Overall Rating: 3.5/5.

This BB cream is pretty much in my favor in terms of coverage and texture as it feels really light on the skin. But oil control wise, it only lasted about 2-3 hours before I oiled up in my T-zone. So you might want to avoid this if you have oily combination skin like mine.

I would recommend it for those with Dry to Normal skin types. I have tried this on someone with dry skin and it looks really good.

The Klairs BB Cream is available for purchase here: http://www.wishtrend.com/bb-cc-cream/584–klairs-illuminating-supple-blemish-cream.html#

Review: Skin 79 Vital Orange BB Cream

I’ve received the latest addition to the Skin79 BB Cream family from the kind people from StarAsia.

It’s the new Vital Orange BB Cream with the highest spf of SPF 50 PA+++, providing you with the highest level of protection from the harmful UV rays.

 

 

Here’s a swatch of the BB cream. Color is unlike the VIP Gold one which is more to the greyish side. The Vital Orange BB cream is more yellow toned which is perfect for us with the yellow under tones.

 

Here’s a half face photo with the bb cream applied to the left side of the face. I feel that it evens out redness quite well and coverage is quite good.

 

Here’s after setting with powder. Looks pretty good no?

Here’s my ratings on the Vital Orange BB cream:

Coverage: 4/5

Blendability: 3.5/5

Oil control: 3/5

Color: 4/5

Staying power: 3.5/5

Overall: 3.75/5

I would recommend this BB cream to those who needs coverage and those with normal or more towards dry skin. For oily combi skin like me will just have to blot more often as the oil control for this BB cream is pretty average. But I would say this BB cream is a win in terms of coverage and color.

Hope this is helpful!

Thanks,

XOXO
