BB creams have been all the rave for the past few years. This is apparent if you’re a makeup junkie because you’ll notice how all the brands have been coming out with their own versions of this. From drugstore brands like Maybelline to crowd favorites like MAC, BB creams can be seen. However, while reading reviews online, they still say that Asian BB creams are the best. So I tried out one of them.
Lioele Triple the Solution comes in a cute hot pink and gold box. For 1150 pesos, the cream promises whitening and wrinkle care and has SPF 30, which is always a plus for me since I commute and I really need to take advantage of whatever additional sunscreen I can get. And besides, I read a lot of good reviews about it so I decided to give it a try.
I found that it’s a little bit on the pink tone, and thus, it doesn’t really match my skin since I have yellow undertones. It’s got really full coverage, though, which leaves you looking flawless throughout the day.
After using this BB Cream for around a week or so, here are some pros and cons that I’ve come to observe.
1. Buildable coverage- you can go from medium to full
2. SPF 30
3. You don’t have to use a lot for good coverage, and thus, this tube can last a lot longer than other creams.
4. Provides a smooth, dewy finish
6. Not cakey- you can pile it on for that extra coverage of hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
1. Very oily.
2. Kinda pricey for a BB Cream.
3. Only comes in one shade
Overall, I believe this BB Cream was made for people with skin colour that’s preferably on the pink side. I love its dewy finish in the morning, but my face becomes an oil slick in the afternoon, causing me to keep blotting. People with dry to normal skin would probably appreciate this product more than I do. Don’t get me wrong, I love its flawless finish, but this BB cream just isn’t a good match for oily skin and the hot, humid weather where I live.
