Okay, so I figured I should repost my previous BB cream post so you guys know exactly what I am on about when I review this new BB cream which I ordered online that arrived today.
These are my initial thoughts about the cream, I haven’t used it over a long period of time yet (obviously LOL). But I’ll do my best. The bottles look like this:
Yes, I put my Urban Decay Naked Palette behind it because it’s amazing. LOL.
Sorry for the small & crap images. My camera REFUSED to focus. -.-‘ Anyway, my review is comparing the Lioele to Skin79’s Gold+.
Packaging: I love the packaging, both bb creams have really pretty bottles. The Lioele looks like a tube, but it actually has a nice gold pump which is much more convenient in my opinion. Have to admit, I prefer Skin79‘s bottle only because it is more stable on my dressing table. I hate it when my makeup falls over LOL.
Functions: Lioele has SPF30, whitening & wrinkle care functions, along with the general BB cream functions of moisturising & evening out skin tone. Skin79 has the same, but it is SPF25. This generally means that it will not leave as grey a cast in photographs, however I have yet to confirm this.
Coverage: I read/watched MANY reviews about this BB cream before I purchased it. Everyone mentioned that it is medium-high coverage, particularly for a BB cream. I can safely say that this is true. It has comparatively better coverage than the Skin79 BB Cream in Gold+, which is a plus for me because it means that I won’t have to use a concealer or foundation along with the cream. The Skin79 Gold+ has a lighter coverage, however this also means that it feels lighter as well.
Other: Lioele’s BB cream has a floral-y scent to it, which I must say I am not a fan of when compared to Skin79‘s cleaner, fresher smell. Alone, I suppose it doesn’t smell too bad. It’s not that it smells bad, it just smells STRONG. I prefer a more subtle scent.
Verdict? Overall, I am liking the cream but I am not sure if it will replace Skin79 Gold+ as my main bb cream. The excellent coverage makes up for it’s scent. If it has good coverage in the long-run & my skin reacts well to it, I may use a combination of both creams ^__^
PS. Today on my date with Bryan I bought a Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait for $15! Been wanting one for a while after I heard about the hype and Jenn showed me hers (I can’t remember what colour she got). Maybe I will do a review on it later.
