Review: L'egere White Multi BB Cream

What is a BB cream? It's the latest craze of skincare particularly in Asia. 'BB' stands for 'Blemish Balm' which has ALL-IN-ONE function:
  • Sun Protect
  • Makeup Base
  • Skin Cover
  • Foundation
  • Skin Whitening
  • Blemish Concealer
Sounds too good to be true right? There are tons of BB creams with different brands but thanks to these lovely ladies' reviews (xppinkx and MakeMeBlushhh), I was able to pick 2 brands. Believe me it's too hard to pick! I wish someone would sell samples of different bb creams just to try. I got mine from ebay seller Japanese Products Lover. I'm still waiting for the other one by Skinfood. I picked these 2 mainly because of their 'oil control' properties. My face is super oily especially on the T-zone. So here is my review of my very first BB Cream:
L'egere White Multi BB Cream 50g $29.99
I thought it's gonna be dark but it blends to your skin tone. I'm NC 25-30. BE PREPARED TO GET SCARED! YIKES!
  • Blendable
  • Buildable
  • Not too heavy
  • Easy to take off
  • Brightens skin instantly
  • Great Coverage
  • Hard to find
  • Doesn't fully hide dark under eye circles
  • Skin tends to look oily at first BUT it gets better by the end of the day
FINISHED LOOK Urban Decay Scandal and Last Call eyeshadows NARS Blush in 'Angelika' NARS Multiple in 'Copacabana' as highlighter MAC Mattene Lipstick in 'Poise' Maybelline Lash Stiletto L'Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner in 'Carbon Black'
VERDICT: I'm very pleased with this product. I don't even have to use a foundation primer, liquid foundation, and concealer. I just use concealer now for my dark under eye circles. I still have to set it tho with my 'Smashbox Halo' which btw i also love. I should have a review for that soon.
