Mac Viva Glam V

hello again!

so i've been wanting Mac Viva Glam V since the "tale a tartan" collection came out w/ the set and a bag but waited for it because i asked my secret santa to gift this to me instead.
instead he gave a gift card and a card stating that he is sorry but the item i wanted was SOLD OUT! BOO!! but i still love my secret santa because i still get to buy the lipstick and something else not makeup related for a change lol!

maybelline bb cream review + new year's eve fotd!

hello gals!

been wanting to try this product ever since the launching on 2009 but this little bad boy wasn't available in Guam. so when my sister traveled to Philippines i made sure she grab me one of it. i know you bb creams lovers have read many reviews on this but i just wanted to share my thoughts.

anyways,


Maybelline B.B. (blemish balm) cream.. the hottest makeup/skincare in asia (not literally Maybelline but few other great products such as Missha, Dr. Jart, and skin79.. etc)

B.B. creams are super well known in asia and even the super well known brand such as "M-A-C" also created a B.B. cream though the availability of Mac very first BB cream can only be purchased in Asia or selected Duty Free.


the package stated that it is an "8 in 1" cream.. pls see further info above.

it comes in a small tube and when i started to pump out the cream i kind of hesitated on how little the product is.. maybe 50% full on a full size product.

here is the tube next to a mac lipstick... pretty small eh?

what i love about this BB cream is that it blends well w/ any of the skin tone it just take a few minutes to sink in and harmonized w/ the color of my skin.

its a natural beige color , i'm a bit on the tan side but after a few minutes
the color react to the persons skin tone.

pros:
great coverage
"8 in 1" as promised
non greasy

cons:
not locally available
a bit pricey (when purchasing this item on ebay approx. $15-$20 )

i can't really think of any other cons w/ this item but will i repurchase again?
yes! but only if i travel to the Philippines to purchase it cheaper!
