BB cream craze

have you tried bb cream yet?

maybe some of you haven't recognize what bb cream is. BB stands to blemish balm. no, it's not an acne cream. it's more like tinted foundation with an advantage of moisturizer, nourisher, primer and sunblock. it said as the secret of Korean stars flawless face's secret. :D

i'm not a fan of Korean stars, but this bb cream seems promising. tried and tested.

i've been using it about a year now, but not religiously. my first (for a long time) bb cream is dodo club since it's easy to find (on the internet), got a good review, and cheap (of course).
i like how this (claimed as) magic cream done with my face. it make my face supple and better by slightly covering impurities. but a thing about this dodo club is it doesn't match my skin tone. as a common Asian, i'm yellow-toned, and this dodo cream is more pink-toned. even though bb cream's coloring tend to blend with our skin, it still annoy me.



the dodo club bb cream


that's why, after long time, i finally has a courage to find another bb cream that really suit me. and now it seems more difficult (or easier?) since there are soooo many range of bb cream to pick. oh.
my second try is Missha Perfect Cover #21. unlike the dodo club one, it has two color selection, 21 and 23. 21 is fairer than 23, while the 21 has more yellowy undertone, 23 is more pinkish. so i pick the 21. turn out it's way fairer than my skin i look like a ghost. and though it said as more yellowy, it's still pinkish to me. despite of the color, it's actually good bb cream. high SPF, good coverage, easy to blend, good oil control.



missha M Perfect Cover


i found it quite difficult to find the perfect bb cream for my skin tone. since most of the bb creams are originated from Korea for Korean market, they were tend to have fair colors. dodo club was said as the dark bb cream, and it still too fair for my tanned skin. :(


the search continued, then i try scandal bb cream. i think it's dc now, so hard to find it in the market. i heard that it was one of the dark bb cream, with good review (no SPF, though), and nice packaging! tee hee..



it has better coloring than two previous bb cream! slightly grayish tho, but ok. i think it will suit better for night out since it has no SPF, and the coverage is somehow heavy (especially if i want my face look entirely flawless from those nasty acne scars).



that said, i need to search more! :D
