INITIAL REVIEW: SKINFOOD ALOE SUN BB CREAM (SHADE 1) + PURPLE LOOK

I was so excited to try this bb cream because of Ms. Pink's review on it. This is supposed to be her main go to bb cream. I got it from ebay seller skinfood2you for $16.19 free shipping from Korea. So here's my take on it...
Skinfood Aloe Sun BB Cream in Shade 1 (Light)
50g like L'egere
From the tube, It's lighter compared to L'egere but blends to your skintone...
On my face...eeew again lol!
PROS:
  • brightens skin instantly (well all bb creams do)
  • matches my skintone more when applied
  • i like the light floral scent (some people may not)
  • very affordable (only $16.19)
  • decent coverage
  • easier to find than L'egere
CONS:
  • consistency is a bit runny
  • cakes up after a few hours (see photo below)
This was after a couple of hours. I was so surprised when i looked in the mirror! It caked up especially on my nose area. I really thought it's gonna be my fave bb cream but this killed it! I don't know if I used a lot of product or because of my super oilyness. I wonder if this happened to anybody aside from me. Tell me please! Anyway, I'm still willing to give it another try and will update u guys for sure so no verdict yet. So here's the finished look before it caked up on my face :P i did a simple purple look... MAKEUP USED EYES UDPP as eye primer Urban Decay 'Flash' and 'Grifter' eyeshadows NARS 'Kilimanjaro I' as brow bone highlighter Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in 'Lust' on waterline L'Oreal Lineur Intense in 'Carbon Black' Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara Milani Browfix on brows LIPS MAC Lipglass in 'Song and Dance' FACE Smashbox Halo in 'Light' YSL Touche Blush #2 on cheeks

hey dear, mine doesn't cake..hmmm..did you set it with powder after the bb cream? or maybe you've used some primer or sunblock before that? i've tried different powders right after bb cream..what i've noticed is that it gives the best coverage and lasting power with mineral powders..but i dunno, it could just be me..hehe
