Every company and their mothers seems to have jumped on the BB cream wagon during these past years, but today I am going back to the roots, reviewing some of the originals, Asian BB Creams.
I have tried many many versions of both Asian and `western` BB creams in the past and I do believe and consider them to be two separate categories.
WishTrend were kind enough to send me a few samples to test and try out and here`s my thoughts:
One of the most famous Asian BB cream brand is Skin79, and that`s what I am going to review today. I have loved their original Hot Pink BB Cream for years, and this time I got a chance to try a few more from their now extensive range.
The main problems I have with Asian BB Creams is the color I`ve said it and I am going to say it again. I am relatively light, a MAC NC20 for reference, and I still have issues matching most asian BB creams out there. I find I tend to favor them during the cold season, when I my skin is lighter and I actually look forward to their thick, denser consistency to protect me from the much harsher elements.
My favorite has to be, hands down, the now famous Hot Pink Super Beblesh Balm. The color is a close match but I love to use it as a base or just mixed in with my foundation. Coverage is medium, which is a nice thing and makes more versatile and easier to work with.
I liked all of these BB creams, Skin79 has to be one of my favorite brands. The main difference and limitation has to be the color, as far as it concerns me.
This is what the pink one looks on me.
