Review: Lioele Beyond The Solution BB CreamTuesday, April 26, 2011
From the website:
This makes a clean and natural skin tone by being absorbed into your skin with a soft feel of use. This enables speedy makeup because of not needing to apply makeup base or foundation. Ingredients such as bisaborol, licorice root acid derivatives, allantoin, etc. soothe your skin and ingredients such as jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, hyaluronic acid derivatives, vegetable collagen, etc. keep your skin wet and smooth.
* Usage : After the final stage of skin care, apply a proper amounts of it, spread it evenly on your desired part or entire face, and have it absorbed with a feel of tapping.
* Capacity : 50 ml
My tube of Lioele: beyond the solution BB cream.
Well to be honest, I bought this because it was pink and had a princessy vibe about it. Who would dare hate the packaging? It's just too cute.
This is the 3rd BB Cream I've used and compared to the others, this has superb coverage and it smells really really good, but I like the Missha Perfect Cover scent more. This bb cream felt really like foundation. It didn't feel light at all. It felt heavy and you will feel that you're wearing thick makeup on. I have oily skin and this didn't really help. I have to blot 2-3x still. So oil control isn't that great. But this does stay on your face the whole day, and I like it for that reason. I have a love-hate relationship with this, though it didn't give my skin much benefits it also didn't break me out. It doesn't have sun protection too, so better yet use sunblock before applying this. On really humid days, I mix this with my sunblock for a lighter application. It feels less constricting this way. This comes in one shade only but it matches my skin pretty well, maybe because it has a yellow undertone to it.
The bottom line:
Amazing buildable coverage. (Medium to Full coverage)
Super cute packaging!
Comes in one shade only.
Comes in one shade only.
Not locally available.
Can sometimes feel heavy on skin.
Oil control is good for people with dry skin but for people with oily skin, it's not so good.
The lid of the pump easily gets dirty. >_<
Overall, this is a good bb cream but I can only use this when it's not that humid. Living in a tropical country makes my oily skin more oilier. Haha. I use this when I need the extra coverage. It really delivers! I can recomend this for people with dry skin and for people with oily skin but for people with super oily skin like me, prepare to blot!
