This is my recent haul from this online shopping. This Package arrived on Wednesday, 11 March 2009, so it's earlier than expected ^^. I'm glad to receive it, as i got some extra samples (though i just ordered 1 piece of compact powder). So, i've tried the pact and the BB cream. Thus i want to review these two items here.
My Skin tone: ivory (quite fair with yellow undertone).
Skin Type: Normal to dry skin, non-problematic skin.
Product brand: Skin 79
Product name: Hotpink BB pact SPF 30 PA++
Nett weight: 15gr.
My Rating: ****
The package of this powder is not really appealing to me, however the shocking-pink color might be attractive to some people (yes, the colour is quite cute). This powder is attached with a mirror, standard powder puff (with a light fragrance), and clear plastic cover to put the puff on.
This powder is not a two-way cake powder and only comes in one shade only (it's quite fair). It's claimed to give a sheer coverage to skin, which I feel is indeed yes. The powder is also slightly fragrant, just like the puff.
That day, i just apply my emulsion & BB cream hotpink as the base of my make-up. I left the sunscreen behind, because i think the sun protection from BB cream (SPF 25) and BB pact (SPF 30) is enough. With a light application, the powder could give me a brighter and even skin tone. When i touched my skin right after application, i felt my skin was moisturized enough. It didn't look cakey nor oxidize after a couple hours (note that i was going through a HOT journey on the bus and sweat was all over my face!).
After 12 hours, the powder still stayed (although it faded a bit, but i could still see the that it still covered my skin good enough). However, when i looked closely to my nose, i saw some brown spots clogged my pores (which never happened to my previous powder, i believe). I'm not sure whether the spots was caused by the powder or the BB cream, but as it didn't really bother me, i still rate it 4*. Yes, I'm quite satisfied.
Product Name: Hotpink BB cream SPF 25
I got this product as a free sample. It comes in a cute small tube, also with a shocking-pink colour. This BB cream also comes in one shade only and it's claimed to have 3 functions: whitening, UV protecting (SPF 25 PA++) and wrinkle free. This cream also has a light fragrance.
The texture of this cream is light and very blendable. That's why, it gives sheerer coverage than Dodo Club BB cream. What i like about this BB cream is that it could help moisturizing my skin.
