Product Review- 4 Skin79 BB Creams

I mentioned in my Collective Spring Break Haul that I had bought a sample kit of the Skin79 BB Creams. It comes with the prestige, pearl, gold, and pink labels. And now that I can sneak away to use my dad's computer to upload pictures, you guys get 4 BB Cream reviews in one post.

First of all, let me just tell you how nice this little kit is. It allowed me to see which
BB cream was right for me and my skin. The samples are the perfect size to through in your purse. My own makeup bag got a little bulky with all the full sized bottles hanging out in there.

With all of these BB creams, a little goes a long way. It will give you enough time to figure out which one you like best and wait for a full sized product to be shipped. Since this is a product from Korea, I have to order it online.

Honestly, the formulas are pretty similar. They all even out my skin tone and hides some of my spots. I would say that they are medium-heavy coverage. I still need a concealer but I always need concealer no matter what makeup I use. They come out a little grey but after a while they oxidize to the right color for my skin.

 The prestige label does the best at controlling my oil, which instantly makes it my favorite. The sad thing is that it doesn't have any SPF or benefits.

The pearl label has a bit of shimmer to it when it's blended out. I'm not sure I like that for everyday use, but sometimes you just need a little sparkle. I wouldn't buy this full sized, the sample is just right for those few days that I want to use it.

I didn't really see anything that made the gold label stand out compared to the other four. It's pretty basic. It does have SPF, anti-aging, and whitening benefits. If that is something that sounds appealing to you, then I would recommend it. I think that this will be fantastic in the summer months when the sun can be pretty harsh.

The hot pink label is probably the most popular out of all of these. It has the same benefits as the gold label. This is a lot of people's staple BB cream. As you can see, it's a little depleted due to constant use. I have a strong feeling that I will be purchasing this full sized and repurchasing it.

Overall- These BB creams are really light and offer good coverage. My skin has calmed down when it comes to oil since I've been using these. They have replaced my MAC foundation that I has been my holy grail product for months.

Comparing this to Western BB creams, I don't think I will be getting another Western BB cream for a long time. If you've only tried BB creams from America like me before this, get an Asian one. They are so much more better.

Which do you think is better? Western or Asian BB creams?
