It looks more like a stippling brush to me

Product Review: Bloop de Paris Flawless Cover Foundation

Bloop de Paris Flawless Cover Foundation

Hi Guys!
I’m back with a foundation review!
Today its the
Bloop de Paris Flawless Cover Foundation
I don’t know why there isn’t a lot of reviews on Bloop products
My use of their products has been very nice for me
I feel that this brand doesn’t get as much recognition as others
Which is a sad thing
So without further ado
Here are the pictures:
Product comes in a matte black squeeze tube
The same size with the Holika Holika BB Cream and the Garnier BB Cream
Which I review it HERE
Piece of advice when buying this foundation
BEWARE OF THE SQUEEZE TUBE
It oozes out none stop!
My color is 204
Similar to my MAC shade NC20
According to Bloop
This is a light-weight liquid foundation that gives moderate coverage
Which should be meaning light to medium coverage
Gives a flawless matte finish
Smooth away wrinkles and repair age related skin damage
It also contains Vitamin E and UV filters
This is how it looks when it freshly applied
It suits my skin fairly well
True to its name
It does give light to medium coverage
Gives a semi matte finish
I applied my holy grail loose powder and touched up with some concealer
I also used a primer before applying the foundation
This is how it looks like after 6 hours
The oil on my face is peeking through and there is no fade
The foundation is a yellow toned liquid with a runny texture
This is unblended
Slightly blended
Fully blended
It does have a smell to it
Kind of a really clean water kind of scent
You think of very filtered water when you smell it
Conclusion:
Texture 4/5
Oil control 4/5
Colour 3/5 Still a bit too light
Smell 3/5
Packaging 3/5
Blendability 4/5
I like this foundation
It evens out my skintone and let my natural skin show through
It gives the benefits it promises
I don’t know much about the anti-aging though
But I certainly feel a connection with this foundation and I feel that I will go back to this often
So why not try it?
Bloop is having a promotion anyway!
That’s all for today
Love,

Product Review: Garnier Instant Fairness BB Moisturizer

 Garnier Instant Fairness BB Moisturizer

Hi guys!
I’m doing another BB cream review!
By now I know some of you will be thinking how many BB creams do I have
Haha
Well
Let’s just say that I’m a very avid fan of BB creams
So today’s review will be on the
 Garnier Instant Fairness BB Moisturizer
This BB cream promises 10 benefits
Which are:
1. Radiance
2. Even skin tone
3. Less dark spots
4. Less visible imperfections
5. Reduce redness
6. Smoothness
7. More hydrated
8. Less visible lines
9. Less visible pores
10. Healthy glow
Also it is oil free and fragrance free
Does not clog pores and suitable for all skin types and tones
So let’s see does it deliver shall we?
Here are the pictures:
Product comes in a squeeze tube with a white cap
The tube is about the same size with the Holika Holika BB cream
Which I did a review HERE
I don’t like this packaging though
Feel a but cheap to me
One thing which irked me a lot was the amount it comes in
20ML!!!
Like really?
That is very little when compared to other BB cream brands out there!
Why Garnier!
This is how the squeeze nozzle looks like
Unblended
Apologise for the brown spot there
I was testing out a new bronzer
Hehe
Slightly blended
Fully blended
It looks a tad dark on my skin
It is also due to that I’m really fair
It blends fairly easily
Remember about Garnier saying that it is fragrance free?
TOTALLY DISAGREE
It does have a fragrance
It smells a bit like plastic
EEK!
Also
Remember Garnier claiming that this is suited for ALL skin tones?
Seriously Garnier?
Does this look like it suits all skin tones?
*Presses wrong answer button*
So this is how it looks on my face:
Freshly applied
I wore this during my day off where I know I was going anywhere
So I didn’t bother to powder it
As you can see
It has a dewy finish
It gives a sheer to light coverage
My pores looks diminished and there is less redness on my face
My skin does looks more radiant and even toned
My pimples were not really covered by this BB cream
Skin feels slightly more hydrated
I can’t say about lines because I don’t have them yet
This is how it looks like after 5 hours
Still holding up quite good
But bear in mind I didn’t go anywhere while wearing this
So conclusion:
Texture 3/5
Smell 1/5
Colour 2/5
Packaging 2/5
Blendability 3/5
Coverage: Sheer to Light
Conclusion:
This BB cream promises 10 benefits which delivers to a certain extent
But it is not for everyone
I think this BB cream would be more suited to people with Dry to Normal Skin, are in a NC20-NC35 range and have fairly good skin
Seriously I’m tired of western company making false claims for BB Cream
*ahem* Suit all skin tones *ahem*
That’s all for today guys!
Love,
Evan Chang

Product Review: TheFaceShop HD-Perfect BB Cream

TheFaceShop HD-Perfect BB Cream

Hey guys!
I’m back with another BB cream review!
Today it’s TheFaceShop HD-Perfect BB Cream
TheFaceShop claims that its good for HD photos and videos
So let’s see how it fare shall we?
Here is some pictures of the product:
Matte gold Squeeze tube that is the same size with the Aqua Tinted BB cream
Which I done a review and you can view it HERE
I got mine is the shade 02 Natural Beige
This is how the squeeze tube looks like
Unblended
Slightly blended
Fully blended with a bit of grey casts!
But it adapts to skin tone in time
DEFINITELY NOT FLASH FRIENDLY!
So is it HD photo friendly?
In my opinion
I think it does a great job without flash
BUT
When flash is on
HOHOHOHO
Your face will look like the MOON
So let’s get to the product performance:
The BB cream is very easy to spread and blend
It absorbs quickly into the skin
Adapts to my skin within 5 minutes
It smells like some of the other TheFaceShop BB creams
A bit of a floral scent mixed with baby powder
What a weird combination
=.=’
It gives heavy coverage while not looking cakey at all
It looks very natural actually!
It dries to a natural matte finish
Giving the look of skin
It controls the secretion of oil of my face up to 4 hours
Then I start to get oily around my T-zone
It doesn’t make my skin break out in anyway
So I guess this is one of those BB cream that just satisfies most people criteria!
Conclusion:
Blendability 4/5
Coverage 3/5
Smell 3/5
Finish: Natural Matte
Would I recommend this?
There are other BB cream that has the same functions, nonetheless its still a good BB cream
However this is one BB cream that is more suited for oily skinned people
So dry skin people, do find another BB cream!
That’s all for today!
Love,
Evan Chang

Product Review: Lioele Have to Men BB Triple

Lioele Have to Men BB Triple

Hi guys!
Girls step back for this post
For today I am going to review a product for men!
LOL
Just kidding
Both men and women can use this product
I’m going to review for you guys the Lioele Have to Men BB Triple
Lioele’s version of a BB cream for men
Here are the picture of the product along with my face and swatches:
Product comes in a matte black squeeze tube
Very classy
The squeeze tube looks like this
Quite small
Able to fit in the palm of your hand
Product is quite liquid
Not very thick
Which means not a lot of coverage
Slightly blended
Fully blended
As you can see
It DOES NOT have a matte finish to it
It is very glossy and shiny
I highly suggest you powder this down to avoid looking oily
The product smells like your typical EDT
It’s nothing strong
Very suitable for men
Again
With most BB creams
It only comes in ONE colour
GAH!
Before BB Cream
After BB cream
It evened out my skintone
Hid some of the redness
However it does not provide high coverage
I would say light to medium coverage at most
This BB cream lasts a long time on me WITHOUT POWDER
Granted I did not sweat or anything
However it made me look very shiny the whole day
So conclusion:
Colour 1/5
Smell 3/5
Texture 3/5 Too runny for my liking
Coverage 2/5
Finish: Dewy
Would I recommend this?
To oily skin peeps? NO
To dry skin peeps? Maybe
To Combination skin peeps? Maybe
To Normal skin peeps? You don’t need it, your skin is probably flawless
To sensitive skin peeps? Try to this test this out at Sungei Wang before purchasing this BB cream
Love,
Evan Chang
