[MAKEUP REVIEW] INNISFREE NO SEBUM BB CREAM SPF 30 PA++ #02 NATURAL BEIGE

Thursday, March 31, 2016




“One is not enough.” The sentence is true when we are talking about BB Cream, right? Even we’ve already had one or two BB cream products, everytime we know other brands we just want to try them. That’s why we’re called women, LOL. So guys, for today I’m going to make a review about one of my BB cream from Innisfree. Actually, it is not my favorite BB cream at this time, but it was. I don’t want to talk too much, so let’s started!



NAME:
NO SEBUM BB CREAM SPF 30 PA++

BRAND:
INNISFREE

COLORS:
#02 NATURAL BEIGE

WEIGHT:
40 ml

PRICE:
USD 21.00







This BB cream is one of Innisfree’s No Sebum series. It’s in the same line with its No Sebum Mineral Powder and No Sebum Primer. I think the Mineral Powder is the best sale of all. There’s a lot of reviews for this powder, mostly is great. No wonder la since the oil control of it is so awesome. I love the powder so much and always repurchase when runs out. Then I thought, why don’t I buy the BB cream of this No Sebum Series? So yeah, I bought No Sebum BB cream and hope it would be as great as the powder.




Descriptions
The naturally derived mineral sebum controlling powder adsorbs excessive sebum on skin surface, helping to present a non-greasy, soft, and powdery complexion all day long.

It also claims for its four main expertises: oil control, long lasting, no darkening, effective coverage. The product contains Jeju mineral powder and Jeju green tea, I love green tea so soo much...






Packaging
The outer box is so into Innisfree, so simple and clean. Of course, like always, it is printed with soy ink. Innisfree is well known for its natural and green concept. I think that’s my first reason why I’ve tried and now falling in love with their products. You can see the outer package by clicking the pictures to zoom.
The product itself came in a white plastic tube.  Like no other BB cream packaging, Innisfree made it into a flat tube and the size isn’t that big for its 40 ml content. That’s why it doesn’t come in a pump type. I like the package because it is very friendly to my makeup pouch, so I can bring it anywhere I like in my pouch.
Don’t have anything else to be told since the tube is kinda plain and not that cute, LOL. Just see the pictures!



Scent
Like the Powder, it has natural herbal and mint scent. But this one is quite strong than the Powder’s scent and it won’t disappear once you blend the cream T_T The scent stays quite long. You might don’t like the scent if you dislike herbal scent. I felt weird too when smelt this BB cream for the first time, but then be ‘okay’ after several times using it. In fact, it won’t make you can’t breath while using this BB cream, LOL.





Texture
Sometimes BB cream with matte finish and high coverage comes in a creamy and thick texture, so does it. Well, it’s not that thick like soo thiiicckk~ at all since it’s blended quite easily. But I believe if you have dry skin, you won’t like it. Though I have an oily skin and this BB cream is smooth in texture, I have to make sure that my skin is well moistened before applying it, or the result will be clumpy.




Result
You can see on my pictures, once applied and blended it became soo white like crazy. Look at the difference of my skin color on my back palm. Btw, when I apply the BB cream on my face, it was like a naughty ghost for awhile, LOL. After some minutes, about 10-15 minutes, it will blend naturally with your own skin. Pheww... Oh, thank you.
The result is totally matte! As an oily combination-skin person, I like it.  It also has good oil control, especially when you set it together with the No Sebum Powder. My experience, use it alone without the Powder will keep you from oily face for about 3-4 hours. And with the Powder used, it can stay non-oily up till 6 hours. Hmm... quite good!




Sorry, I didn’t include the waterproof test pictures, but this BB cream is waterproof. I had some effort to erase the swatches on my hand with water. Finally I decided to use oil cleanser.
The coverage is medium. It can cover up my dark circle and uneven skin tone, also most of my scars. But it doesn’t work that well for my super red blemishes. I still need concealer because this BB cream is not buildable. You will end up with cakey result if you use it more than one layer.
Overall, it was my favorite base makeup last summer since my country has crazy summertime. But these latest days when it becomes rainy oftentimes and colder, I need a base makeup that has more moistfull effect to my face which is this product doesn’t have. Besides, nowdays I am becoming a fan of glowy makeup ^_^
The conclusion, I love using No Sebum BB Cream when my skin is in a good condition (read: no red blemish and moistfull ) since the formula of this BB is not buildable. I have to make sure using it in a proper amount, so it won’t be cakey. I’ll give it 4 stars of 5 (actually because it’s Innisfree, LOL).


My FOTD using Innisfree No Sebum BB Cream + The Powder
I should cut my bangs and bring it back again -.-


What I like :
  • Good oil control
  • Perfect when I want a matte makeup
  • Waterproof
  • Good coverage
  • No greyish effect
  • No breakout

What I Dislike :
  • The smell maybe too strong
  • Sometime it will be cakey under eye area and smile-line (Don’t blot it with tissue, it just will make it more noticeable. I usually use my face mist then pat it gently with sponge to fix it)


I don’t recommend No Sebum BB Cream for everyone who has dry skin or you all who doesn’t like matte finish. This Bb Cream is good for you with oily skin or you all who loves matte skin.
Finally, that’s all for today. I hope this review will help you. So guys have you tried this BB Cream? What do you think about this BB Cream?

[MAKEUP REVIEW] AIR-FIT A’PIEU CUSHION SPECIAL SET X DORAEMON

Tuesday, March 22, 2016
Hello hello beauty people! Come join us playing in the garden!
Wait... I think someone is missing! Where’s Doraemon?






Ah~ Here’s he is! He has just had a meeting with A’Pieu for their collaboration I think. LOL LOL ^u^








Well, this cushion is coming from A’Pieu. For you who doesn’t know this brand, A’Pieu is a sister brand of Missha from Korea. Honestly, I didn’t know this brand until they have a booming collaboration with one of the famous character from Japan. A’Pieu X Doraemon.

I love Doraemon since I was little. So when I heard about their collab, I decided to buy one of their product which is Air-Fit Cushion. Actually they have lotta cute products from this collaboration like jelly tints, eyebrow powder, cushion blusher, mini eye-pallete and others. All in the Doraemon extra kawaii package. I want them all, ahaha. But in the reason I haven’t tried A’Pieu and couldn’t find lot of reviews about this brand, so I just try the Air-Fit Cushion first.

I should write this review months ago since I bought it in 2015, but it’s still okay, right? So scrolling down and see more about Air-Fit A’Pieu Cushion Doraemon Edition^^








NAME:
AIR-FIT CUSHION SPF50+ / PA+++ (SPECIAL SET DORAEMON EDITION)

BRAND:
A’PIEU

COLORS:
#21

WEIGHT:
13.5 g + 13.5 g Refill + Air Puff 1 ea

PRICE:
USD 15.00








As they made it to a special set, a box of this product consists of a cutie Doraemon case with cushion, one cushion refill and one air in puff. Hmmm... It’s very affordable for the price around USD 15.00 or under IDR 200,000, imo.

The description is written in Hangul Korea and A’Pieu doesn’t include the English brochure btw T.T Don’t worry, I write the English description for you below ;D







Description

  • Air-Light Powder’s gives light and clear application giving natural make up finish.
  • Used mineral water instead of water for clean and moisture skin.

  • ‘Rolling System’ with skin curves giving clean and even application.

  • ‘Airy Cover Powder’ gives silky comfortable skin coverage.

  • Aloe / tea tree extract gives comfort on sensitive skin.

  • Patent ingredient avocado peptide gives healthy elastic skin.










Packaging

Who can resist this hella cute case? Exactly, not Me! Since I don’t really know about this brand, the first reason why I bought it was its cute package. As you can see, there’s Doraemon face printed on the case. Whole face over it!

It’s made from plastic but doesn’t look cheapy since Doraemon’s face makes it look kawaii, indeed. Compared with other cushions like Laneige, Iope or Etude, this one is smaller and lighter in weight. But don’t worry because the case is sturdy enough though it’s made from plastic. Frankly, I like it because this cushion is travel friendly and so handy. It’s perfect as my pouch-mate.

Anyway, I don’t have to describe more, just enjoy the pictures here because all the things I can say is cute, Cute, CUTE!!! \(^w^)/








A thing I like from using cushion product is because of the air puff. It helps us to spread the content quickly, also the air puff technology will enable us to control the product amount without leaving a lot of foundie absorbed into the puff. It’s more effective and efficient, of course.





The interesting thing I found from the air puff of A’Pieu is its huge good quality. Even if I should compare it with Laneige’s air puff from their Pore Control BB Cushion. Oh seriously, Laneige?! O_O

I’m serious, this fuwa fuwa air puff is so soft and puffy. I really appreciate with the quality of this air puff. Good job A’Pieu!





Smell

I like the smell for sure though it’s kinda strong. Even you can smell it once you open the screen under the air puff. The smell is fresh with a hint of floral scent. Since my nose is not that sensitive, so far the smell doesn’t bother me at all. Well, I like it tho ;P










Texture

Like many others cushion products, Air-Fit A’Pieu Cushions has very light texture. It’s not like that watery, but I can’t say that it’s creamy enough. You know lah, it’s ‘cushion-creamy’ texture. It is easy to blend out over my face and neck area. And since it’s very light, I don’t feel like wearing a mask on my face. I think it’s very suitable for daily use or anytime you want a natural makeup look.








Result

Lately I know that A’Pieu has lighter shade than other brands usually have. I’m usually in No. 21 which is light beige, so I picked the same number too for this product. In the fact, it’s a little bit lighter on my face. Fortunately, it’s still tolerable for my skin tone. The good point is the shade of this cushion works well to brighten up my skin instantly.

Talking about the coverage, Air-Fit Cushion’s coverage is just so so. It has light and sheer coverage for red blemishes but works pretty nice to camouflage the dark eyes area. My advice, if you want more coverage, using you concealer is better than reapply this cushion on your face. The more you apply this product, it will be more cakey. That’s why I like to use it when I want a natural daily look or everytime I have a very good skin condition. Because I get the best look with this cushion when I apply it lightly and sheer.

On the pictures, you can see my red blemish is still noticeable.

Please, ignore my silly face >.<   You can see my blemishes there, right?


This cushion will give you semi-matte finish with no moist effect. I think it’s more suitable for combination to oily skin. Unfortunately, you still need your the-best-oil-control-compact-powder to keep your face from oily ugly face because this cushion has not too good oil control. On my face, it just stays about 2-3 hours free-shine. After that, the product will meltdown. So, I don’t want to use this cushion when I have outdoor activities although it contains very high sun protection, SPF50+/PA+++.

Idk, but somehow I find clumpy residue under my eyes area and my smile-lines after hours using this cushion. Normally it just happen when I apply the product a bit thicker. So yeah, as I mentioned before, I just like using it when I need no high coverage on my face so I can apply it slightly.








What I Like :

·  Love the CUTE packaging like CRAZY!!!

·  Affordable price

·  High SPF50+ / PA+++

·  Light texture suitable for daily

·  Brighten up my skin and no breakout





What I Dislike :

·  Less coverage

·  Oil control is so so

·  NO moist effect

·  Cakey after hours







I’ll give it 3 stars of 5. I have to admit that I’m not that satisfied with this product, EXCEPT for its package. LOL

I think this product is the best for people with flawless and radiant skin. For me, I just use it when my skin is in her happy mood (read: good condition) Anyway, since I really love the Doraemon cute case, now I replace the cushion inside with my Laneige’s cushion. So I bring A’Pieu Doraemon case in my pouch but actually the content is Laneige’s. LOL. Yah, a little cheating trick is okay lah! Ahahaa...

What do you think about this product guys? Lemme know...^^

Where to buy : Korea Buys
