This is my first time trying Skin79 BB cream as well as a shimmery type. I'm glad I did because the experience is so much difference than regular BB cream.
Skin79 Luminous Pearl BB Cream has little shimmery particles in it. Here are some before and after pics...you can clearly see the shimmery effects...
a really close up pic on my skin ^^
What I like about this BB Cream:
+The texture is soft as a mouse. It's very light and goes on skin smoothly.
+The shimmery particles make my face glows and vibrant looking
+Comes in a detachable brush so you don't have to use your fingers or a sponge to apply the cream onto your skin. The brush head can be taken off easily therefore, it makes it much more sanitize to use
+Great for taking pictures. Take a look at the pictures below. My face looks really bright and glowy due to the shimmery effect.
What I don't like about this BB Cream:
-Availability. Location to get this bb cream is rare here in the U.S. or at least where I live. Therefore, for me, the only way to get it is online but hey, same things goes for most of the other BB creams I've tried ^^
-A bit too oily. I have combination skin and I had to blotch my t-zone several times more than I normally would have to.
-Coverage is medium. It does not cover all my blemishes compare to other bb creams.
-Too shimmery for everyday look. I'm a matte girl. Although it's fun to be bright and shinny once in a while, I found this BB Cream not suitable for everyday wear.
Would I buy it again?
This is a maybe for me. I like the difference feeling it has on my skin. I might be using this more during the summer since I like the how it makes my face glows while out in the sun but during colder months, I wouldn't want to look all glittery walking around. Not recommend for people who just started using bb creams, those who have oily skin and those who do not like shimmer. Also, not recommend for people who look for heavy coverage and has lots of blemishes or skin discolorations. Overall, I'm giving this a 3.8/5
