swatch + BB cream review!

been wanting to try out one of Paul and Joe lipstick!
i grabbed # 29..


a peachy nude color!
i love how it's sheer and shimmery, i had to do 4 swatches on my hand.
i also love how its smell.. this particular lipstick would match any outfits, also bling out the lips due to the glitters.



i've been using BB creams for a year now, i've tried dr. jart & skinfood
but by far Missha's BB cream topped my listing.
i've collect 3 of their best sellers. fyi: i have really oily skin on my t-zone area
and my skin color is medium.




(from l-r: vita, shiny, and perfect cover (#23) )

the best one yet is Missha VITA (gold) the best BB cream i've tried so far.

pros:
matches skin tone after few minutes
hides blemishes and scarring
smells great
lightweight on face
doesn't give me breakout

cons:
makes you look a little darker
gets oily
fades due to sweating


rate: 4.5/5 just because i have to re-apply this about twice throughout the day because of our warm and sunny weather. i recommend a blot powder to use w/ this item.


(from l-r: vita, shiny, perfect cover)

vita has a pink beige color, great to cover any redness and scarring on the face.
shiny has a nude beige color, kind of shimmery.. similar to Revlon's Photoready foundation in 'natural beige'.
perfect cover #23 has a nude beige color also similar to Revlon's Colorstay either could pass up to 'medium beige' or 'natural beige'


shiny (white and silver) BB cream is the last thing i wanted to try out. when i swatch and blended the colors in the back of my hand i thought that its way too shimmery to apply to my oily skin.

pros:
great for highlighting
covers blemish and scarring
smells great
create a healthy glowing reflection

cons:
way too shimmery
gets oily through the end of the day
makes my face more shiny due to the shimmer
hence makes my face more oily

rate: 3/5

i would give this BB cream another shot to use as foundation base, maybe when
i go somewhere cold. this BB cream is really not a good base to use at a tropical area.

here's how it look when its spread a little bit, now you could easily tell 'vita' is a tad lighter than the other two. you could also tell that 'shiny' and 'perfect cover #23' is similar.

Missha's hottest selling product Perfect Cover BB cream. i was skeptical at first but when it was trending back then i had to get my hand on one.

pros:
matches skintone
great spf
covers my dark circle, blemish, scarring, and redness.
great use as a foundation base or alone itself
feels like silicon when applied


cons:
heavy
made me break out
makes you a little dark at the end of the day


rate: 4.5/5

may sound great and apply great, but still doesn't do justice when i break out.


this is how it looks when thoroughly spread out.
