I actually got this sample from The Sample Store since January 2011. I was excited to try since this sample given is in full size initially. However, after taking some shots with my camera, I decide to procrastinate on the review on this BB cream. The reason is because the shade looks kinda of dark. I am not not fair looking lady but even for me I feel it is dark. I got the Natural Shade which is the darker shade.
This BB cream come with only 2 shades, Natural and Ivory. I redeem the natural shade as I strongly believe I do not belong the the fair group. I also find the 2 shade seems a bit little shades to offer. However, on the other hand, I suddenly remembered that this is a BB cream. It is not supposed to have shade in the first place…
The packaging. I quite like their “Cyber Colors” Silver prints on the box. It is reflective too.
In case u wonder if they are “clearing” stock. Nope! The expiry date is up to June 2013
Usage Direction and Ingredient list @ the back of the box.
It comes with a free sponge for application. However, I did not use the sponge during the review. I use my ELF Foundation brush for the application.
I wonder why is the sticker not stick properly.
It comes with a mirror too. See the shade is dark right?
For those who can’t see from the previous photo. This is the shade that scares me off.
My face without any form of foundation. I am sorry I look very in a shock. I know my face looks kinda of dark and dull.
My favourite way to compare and see what this BB cream do to me. To my surprise it doesn’t look dark on my skin. It looks even lighter than my original skintone.
This is me with only BB cream on my face. I love the effect, it looks like I have flawless.

Where To Buy
I did not expect that I will love this BB cream. I have been using BB cream even before it was launched in Singapore. I bought BRTC Jasmine BB cream from Korea Gmarket. I was the spree organiser then and one of my all time spree-er introduce me. From then on, I love it… I was quite fair at that point of time when I was schooling. I am currently work field base hence I got a tan skintone. I do not hate it but it makes most BB cream too fair for me. I have been searching BB cream since then and the only one that I can match my skintone is the skin79 one. In terms of shade, this BB cream makes me very satisfied and pleased with the result.
I applied the BB cream with brushes instead of sponge as I feel that sponge will take up more BB cream needed for usage and the BB cream will finish faster this way. I would say the first application was quite alright. I do not feel oily and it is easy to apply too. It does feel a bit sticky initially but after some blending with finger, the sticky feeling will be gone. In terms of coverage, I would say it does medium coverage. It can cover redness in my skin but it doesn’t cover black eye bags. Somehow I feel it enhance my skin’s natural glow. My skin looks brighter but not shimmery with oil kind of brightness.
The only sad thing was this BB cream doesn’t come with oil control. My oily combination skin become shinny after 2 hours and I have to blot off the excess oil.
Overall, I would still recommend this product ladies my normal tan skin.
