BB cream Series - Dior Snow BB Cream

Lastly we have a high end BB Cream. This is Dior Snow BB cream. It has SPF 50 and PA+++
This BB cream comes in 2 shades, regular and the light shade, which is the one I'm wearing in the picture below.
The regular shade has pinker undertone, and the light shade has a more yellow undertone.

Among the 5 BB cream I review in this series, this seems to be the least scented. It does have a floral scent though.
The texture is a bit thick and can be a bit harder to blend.

This is hands down my favorite one among the bunch. It has the highest SPF and PA rating, and living in a tropical country, sun protection is important for me. (more so since I basicly treat bb creams as tinted sun screens).
Another plus point is that it doesn't have grey tone in it. a flaw that bb creams are prone to have.

Sadly, it's also the priciest one.

BB cream Series - Feverlet HD BB Cream

Fourth in the series is Feverlet HD BB Cream. This one has SPF 30 and PA ++

The texture is thick and can be a bit hard to spread and blend in at first. Once it's blended in though, it blends in naturally. It looks like your skin, but better. I kept staring closely at the mirror, and it doesn't look like I have anything on. The finish is natural and the coverage is sheer to medium.

This is the second BB cream I bought, and remains one of my favorite.
It's scented, but the scent disappears upon application.

BB cream Series - Peach Girl BB Cream

Third in the series is Peach Girl BB Cream by Holika Holika. It has SPF 37 and PA ++
It is scented, like every other bb cream in this series, and comes with a cute little cream blush.

The blush is attached on the cap of the bb cream. It's a pretty medium pink color, and blends nicely.
(left - unblended, right - blended)

This bb cream is creamy and easy to blend, and has a dewy finish. This is actually one of my favorite bb cream.
The coverage is sheer to medium, it evens out my skin tone, but doesn't really cover blemishes. You'll need to use a separate concealer for that.
The one I have is #2, natural beige. They do come in a lighter shade (#1 - light beige)

BB cream Series - Misha Perfect Cover BB Cream

Second bb cream in the series is Misha perfect cover bb cream. The one I have is shade 23 and it is darker in color compared to the other bb creams I review. It seems to blend in after application though. Misha also have a lighter shade (shade 21).

This bb cream has spf 42 and PA +++ and claims to "lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability, and prevents skin aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties"

The texture is creamy and blends easily. It has good coverage, and gives a natural finish. I found that the scent lingers for quite a while after application though.

BB Cream Series - Skin79 Absolute Total BB Cream

This is the first post on my BB Cream series. Over the next few days I will go through some of the BB Creams I own.

The first one is Skin79 Absolute Total BB Cream.
This BB Creams has SPF37 and PA +++ and has wrinkle improvement and whitening among the claims. But how does it perform?

This BB Cream is floral scented, and has sheer coverage. The finish is natural leaning to glowy and doesn't really have oil control ability.
The texture is thick, and creamy.

This is the amount I applied on my skin.

And now the before and after:
These are taken in the same light condition, a few minute apart.

Overall I would not re-purchase this, mostly because it kinda breaks me out when used several days in a row, and I have other BB Creams that I like better. Keep in mind though that I do have sensitive skin that is very acne prone.

NOTW - Mavala Lagoon

Another NOTW for you.
This is Lagoon by MAVALA. Mavala is a Swiss brand, and their nail polish comes in a tiny 5ml bottles.
Despite of the small bottle size though the brush is good, and I don't have any problem using it.

The picture above is 3 coats, and the staying time is good, almost a week after application I only see minor tip wear. (worn with OPI natural nail base coat, and sache vitte top coat).
