Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream Review

 Hello!

It seems like all brands are launching their own BB cream. Chanel has come out with CC Cream few months ago, Dior has DiorSkin Nude BB Cream, and the list goes on.. Recently Guerlain launched Lingerie de Peau BB cream and I picked this up to try it on myself.

This product promises to correct skintone, provide hydration the whole day and not to make the skin feels oily. Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream comes in a rather big (long) tube with a dispenser at the end. This product comes in two shades; light and medium. I picked shade light.

This product has a creamy texture and it gives light to medium coverage. I usually use half pump to achieve light coverage and one pump to medium or even almost full coverage. I usually use my Real Technique Buffing Brush to achieve a lighter coverage and I’ll do a bit of finishing touch with my finger to spread the bb cream evenly all over my face. It has a rather dewy finish but it is not shiny at all. This product can cover redness on my face well. However when I have dark circle under my eye area, this products doesn’t help covering my dark circle too much. I still need to put some concealer to cover it.

Lingerie de Peau BB Cream has a strong smell. Some people might like it and some might want to avoid it. I personally don’t mind with the scent of this product. Another thing that makes me in love with this product is the lasting power. It last with me the whole day without fading and it doesn’t make my skin oily.

Swatch and Look:

I did a very simple look for my Sunday brunch last weekend. I prefer to have a simple look for my weekend brunch. Just a foundation, touch of neutral eyeshadow, eyeliner and blush. In this picture, I use half pump of Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream and did not set it with powder. As you can see, it doesn’t provide a too glowing finish but it surely helps my skin to look healthier.

 

Final Thought:

I bought this product a months ago and I have been using it nearly everyday. I simply love this product to the bits. I love the coverage, the skin tone correction and the lasting power. It doesn’t make my skin feel oily at all. The scent might annoys some of you so you need to smell this product before you buy it.

Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream Review

Hello everyone,

IMG_4931

Few weeks ago I received this Kiehl’s BB cream and has tested this product for 2 weeks. I know I am late but  I am currently obsessed in trying BB creams. Kiehl’s has a great reputation on their skin care range and now they’re venturing into base makeup products. This excites me as I believe this product also contains skincare benefits. I have posted the press release for this product in the previous post.

Kiehl’s BB cream is packed with natural mineral pigments which helps our skin to appear perfect all day. It also contains Vitamin C to  prevent and correct skin damage when applied topically. Works to clarify skin tone, smooth texture and enhance radiance over time. It also contains SPF 50 PA+++ which is suitable for Singapore hot and humid weather.

The Packaging:

Kiehl’s BB Cream is packed in a white packaging which looks simple. The tube is thin and short. It’s handy to be brought anywhere. You can see the size of this tube on the picture below. I can easily grab this product with my hand.

IMG_4938

 

The Texture/Color:

I receive this BB cream in the lightest shade “fair”. The texture of this bb cream is not too thick and not too watery too. I like the consistency of this product as it provides a light coverage. If you wish to have more coverage, you can always put another layer on top of it.  This bb cream has no significant smell. I can barely smell anything.

I have been using this bb cream for two weeks almost every day. I used this for 9 hours. So far I felt this bb cream works great and it lasts for 9 hours. It lasts perfectly up to 7 hours and it starts fading after that. I also feel that this bb cream does not make my face feel oily. In fact it does make my T-zone feel less oily. So I think this might work for people with oily skin.

IMG_4973

 

At the picture above, you can see the bb cream when it is freshly pumped from the tube and when it is blended. It provides a light coverage and great for everyday use.

In Singapore, Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream retails for $52.

 

Final Thought:

Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream satisfied my expectation and works great for everyday use!

 

Thank you for reading. I hope my review helps.

Chanel CC Cream Review

I have heard so many rave about the newly launched Chanel CC Cream and I am lucky to get my husband to pick a tube for me from Changi DFS at SGD62. Chanel CC Cream is retailing in department stores at SGD82. This is my first ever tube of CC cream; I have never tried BB cream either. My base makeup is always either my Avene High Protection Sunscreen or Burberry Velvet Foundation.

I have only been using this CC cream for few days but the finished look has been consistent for these few days and I think it’s fine for me to write the review. Chanel CC cream is only available in one shade 20 Beige. I am MAC NC20 shade and this 20 beige shade match my skintone pretty well.

Packaging:

It’s a white plastic squeezable tube with black cap. I think the packaging is rather dull and looks cheap considering this is retailing at $82. It’s very light and handy to be brought on my daily makeup bag.

Texture:

The texture is quite thick but it blends very well. I blend the CC cream with my hands.  The CC Cream has a very nice smell that’s not too strong. It has a sheer coverage and I don’t think this would be good for covering acne scars or spots. This CC cream provides a matte finish without giving an impression that you’re wearing foundation. It’s matte but it does not make your face looks flat.

Lasting Power:

Chanel CC cream lasts for 8 hours with me and the best thing of this CC cream is that it does not makes my face oily. Usually my face tends to be oily after 4-5 hours of application but it’s not the case with Chanel CC cream. My face still looks the same even after 6 hours without any touch-ups.

Final Thought:

Overall Chanel CC Cream has done a very good job to my skin. What I love the most is this product does not make my skin oily after hours of application. I also love the finish look. My skin looks fresh and it does not look like I am using a foundation.
