Initial Review: Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream + LOTD: Purple

i got this bb cream because of xxpinkx's Valentine look and her New York trip blog post. She raved about it and her skin does looked amazing on them pics. i ordered it from ebay seller legendeaux from Korea. i got it in 12 days. Not bad for international shipping. So here's my mini review of the product...
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream 50g $16 + $3.50 shipping ^ Comes in a tube but has a pump dispenser ^ Comes out dark from the tube but blends to your skin ^ It matches my skintone more than the L'egere Multi bb cream ^ After i set it with Smashbox Halo
PROS:
  • decent coverage
  • matches my skintone more
  • great oil-control
  • cute packaging
  • has a light 'night cream-ish' scent - i likey
CONS
  • no spf
VERDICT: If i was to rate all of the 3 bb creams I've tried, this has to be my top 1...mainly because of it's oil control properties then the color match. I just hope this doesnt break me out. That's the reason why I temporarily stopped using L'egere Multi bb cream and switched back to tinted moisturizer. I'm not sure if L'egere is the culprit or me being super stressed out. I'm still keeping it just in case. Nevertheless, I'm stil in search for the perfect bb cream. I just ordered another brand and will do a review when i get it.
Here's the look i came up with.. Purple again =) MAKEUP USED EYES UDPP as primer Revlon Eyeglide Shimmer Shadow in 'Pearl' as base Stila Holiday Trio in 'Cool' eyeshadows MAC 'Vanilla' pigment as highlighter MAC 'Blacktrack' Fluidline UD 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in 'Lust' on waterline Lashblast Luxe Mascara in 'Black Platinum' Milani Browfix LIPS NARS 'Sweet Dreams' Lip Gloss FACE Lioele BB Cream MAC Concealer+Benefit High Beam+Benefit Powderflage for undereyes Smashbox Halo to set MAC 'Light Flush' MSF on cheeks ^ still wearing my HK inspired nails

Oh your skin looks so flawless! Its lovely :D I think BB creams are a hit or miss type of thing for a lot of ppl...sometimes you have to be patient to find the best technique or something.

Oooh, the BB Cream looks great on you. I've only tried the Skin Food Mushroom BB cream and it was way too light for me. I gave up because most of the bb creams are made for lighter skin. =/ I love your eyes! XOXO

hey girlie. have you been exfoliating with use? i used to think my face creams were breaking me out, but it was just my pores getting clogged. now i don't break out at all since i've been doing light exfoliation every day. that lioele looks amazing. do bb creams help your complexion at all? or do they just make your skin look awesome? - JJ
