    [Skin79 Gold Label BB Cream]
    Coverage: Adequate. I have blotches of redness on my cheeks, and the BB cream lightened it, but I still had to apply a dusting of mineral foundation on top .
    Texture: Thick, like creamy foundation.
    Shade: Beige, with a hue of ash-grey
    Fragrance: no scent
    Oil-Control: I don't have oil control problems, so I'm not quite sure abou tthis
    Dewy or Matte (finish): Dewy
    Overall comments: I like this BB cream. It's reduced the redness on the cheeks slightly (thought I have yet to see any miracles). The coverage is good. My skin feels 2x lighter with BB cream and a dusting of mineral foundation than with Clinique Supermoist Makeup foundation, which is what I used prior to this. I have less clogged pores as well, and the cream is easily blendable

    I read somewhere, after I bought it, that this BB cream is designed for mature skin types(?) Thus, next time, I might try the Skin79 BB cream in the pink can.

    The cons...well, it is thick, so it may not be good for oily skin types. It also has this ash hue to it (I suppose it's for the "whitening effect").

    Skin type: Combination, but leaning towards dry. Sensitive.
    Skin tone: I'm a pale Asian.
    Skin undertone: Yellow
    Skincare Regime: Washcloth + water, moisturiser

    [BB Cream Brand & Name] Missha M Watery
    Coverage: Super friggen sheer
    Texture: Liquid
    Shade: One of the darker BB creams... it's not pinkish, thank goodness.
    Fragrance: Kinda like old lady powder? I dunno how to describe it. It's not disgusting, but it's not super pleasant, imo.
    Oil-Control: Pretty good oil control
    Dewy or Matte (finish): It's so sheer, I have no idea lol
    Overall comments:
    I really like this BB cream despite its lack of coverage. My skin isn't bad off to begin with so I didn't want anything too heavy. I have to admit this is less than what I had expected. The color match is perfect for me-- I'm not too tan, not too pale. But I'm definitely on the tanner side of the BB cream spectrum. I would stay with this cream if it had more coverage. It fails as a concealer, even for ligther blemishes. Like I said, it is sheer. The oil control is pretty good, however. And that makes up for its coverage. I just wouldn't wear this to a photo shoot or something.

    Skin type: Combo
    Skin tone: I currently don't use a foundation. But I listed my shades above.
    Skin undertone: Pinkish yellow?
    Skincare Regime: Witch Hazel every morning/night, AHA Souffle at night

    Dewy or Matte (finish): Dewy?
    Overall comments: It didn't cover up that well, I am kind of tanner then most girls
    who use shade 1, but it works for me since I have yellow undertones, and my face is lighter then the rest of my body.

    Once I put it on and put concealer on my scars it looked really good :]

    [hanskin super magic]
    Coverage: sheer to medium
    Texture: Liquid
    Shade: darker than dr. jart silver label but lighter than black label with a slight pink undertone
    Fragrance: don't really smell anything
    Oil-Control: not bad, my forehead gets a little oily by the end of the day
    Dewy or Matte (finish): matte
    Overall comments:
    this is better to use in the winter because it is not as drying as the dr. jart silver label and has a more sheer coverage that allows for quick application. does not fully cover the acne scars on my forehead but i have bangs so its ok. i like how i look after just applying but a touch up may be necessary to maintain the look. overall, i'd give it a 8.5-10. still looking for the one bb cream that suits me. in the meantime, this will do.
    Skin type: Combo with acne scarring on forehead
    Skin tone: i guess im kind pale? i use the lightest bare minerals set lol
    Skin undertone: Pinkish?
    Skincare Regime: shisheido fash wash and neutrogena combination skin moisturizer

    I am using it. image
    I have dry/sensitive skin.
    Pinkish undertone?!? (i suppose).
    It smelled really good. The texture is also super smooth but doesn't provide much coverage if you have acne or much redness on your face.
    Shade: I chose Light Beigh since my skin is pretty fair. It's lighter than other BB I tried before.
    Oil-control: not so bad but I feel my forehead and nose bridge a bit oily towards the end of the day though.

    CLIO Professional- Whitening B.B Cream
    Coverage: sheer-medium
    Texture: Creamy
    Shade: Beige
    Fragrance: slightly scented
    Oil-Control: not sure... but i tend to have dry skin and this type of bb cream helps individuals with dry skin
    Dewy or Matte (finish): dewy
    Overall comments: i recommend this brand of bb cream, but don't get the whitening. i think bb cream by itself makes your face glow whiter, so adding whitening cream makes you look slightly sickly. some blush might though; i haven't tried it. i've used it for a few weeks; my skin did get lighter. didn't help with occasional acne or blemishes, but the cream did cover blemishes when i wore it. made my skin look sooo much clearer image it's slightly overpriced, and oxidizes after a short time.

    Skin type: dry
    Skin tone: i'm a pretty tan asian. so i guess that's why i look super pale/sickly when i wear this bb cream?
    Skin undertone: beige-yellow
    Skincare Regime: st. ives apricot scrub/week, olay beauty fluid moisterizer/morning&night, neutrogena oil-free acne wash/morning&night. &i drink lots of water lol

    [ COOGI FLOWERTOX 3ACTION ]
    Coverage: medium, buildable
    Texture: creamy
    Shade: pale, pink undertones. NC15-20 and it fits pretty well.
    Fragrance: smells like flowers! i like it image
    Oil-Control: decent oil control, have to reblot every few hoursl
    Dewy or Matte (finish): dewy
    Overall comments: this bbcream was my first, so i am biased and i liked it alot bc i didn't experience other ones yet image still, it was a great first bbcream to start off with, it is one of the paler bbcreams and i choose it since i am very fair. i also have alot of hyperpigmentation, and this is a very buildable bbcream, i just wear this + a bit of concealer, sometimes LP and my skin looks flawless image it does seem to change color throughout the day though, my skin looks best with this bbcream the first few hours after application

    [ LIOELE: BEYOND THE SOLUTION ]
    Coverage: light-medium, buildable
    Texture: creamy but not as spreadable as coogi or a moisturizer.
    Shade: it actually fit my skin shade better than coogi, and i am very fair... NC15-20
    Fragrance: no distinctive smell to me
    Oil-Control: very good oil control! i went thru an entire day of class without reblotting image
    Dewy or Matte (finish): slightly more matte, but doesn't look too "made up"
    Overall comments: i love this bbcream! it feels heavier than coogi because it is harder to blend, but i sort of like it since the oil control is much better and the overall color matches my skin better. i was somewhat scared to use because everyone said it is one ofthe darker bbcreams, but it fits my skin color well.

    i really want to try feverlet but it is one of the more expensive bbcreams image

    Skin type: oily, acne-prone, sensitive
    Skin tone: MAC NC15-20, BE fairly light
    Skin undertone: yellow, beige?
    Skincare Regime: shiseido toner, shiseido the facecare spf tinted moisturizer, bbcream + laura mercier lp. night; wash off with shiseido white lucent cleansing foam, exfoliate with neutrogena aha/bha scrub, philosophy hope in a jar + bio-oil
    smile. you don't know who's day you're making. :)

    Dunno why it's not widely known here.
