If it were up to me, I would use korean makeup 100% of the time. Especially face makeup. I remember the first time someone gave me a 'twin cake' compact from korea... I was sold. My skin looked flawless, and after using that compact, no other powder I tried here seemed to compare. I have to say, koreans are good at anything beauty. (I have to admit, when I was in Korea...I thought there was a bit too much emphasis on beauty...BUT with that said, they make good products!)
The BB Cream "craze " has come to America... but really its been around in Korea for ages. Originally created for women who had 'treatment's' done to their face, BB creams were made as 'safe' makeup that was actually good for your skin, delicate enough for skin that had been treated with laser, and coverage and protection all at the same time.
I've tried several different types of BB creams and have been oogling over Liole products for quite some time now. What can I say, I'm a sucker for packaging and the little cinderella-ish princess carriage makes me want to have all of their products!
I recently got these BB creams and I have to say that it couldn't have come at a better time. This heat wave we are in is no friend to makeup. Amazingly, my face is still in tact at the end of the night..
Go BB Creams!!!

This is the Water Drop BB. $22.80
I was excited to try this one (especially for fall and winter) because I have really dry skin. If you have dry skin, you know that a lot of times makeup can make the dry patches look flaky and accentuate the dryness. This is literally like a drink of water for your skin. It goes on like water...and you skin eats it up. It strangely refreshing. Definitely more sheer coverage, so if you need more full coverage you may need to wear a bit more concealer with this one. I can already tell this will be my go to for fall and winter.
Triple the Solution BB. Cream $28.60
This is what I like to call 'the gangster, hardcore version of BB Cream" this is a thicker more full coverage BB Cream. this one is not going anywhere. At first it feels kind of thick and looks almost an ashy grey, but once it sets in your skin looks WAY better than before. It stays on all day and doesn't budge. I wish there were more color options for different skin tones though. I am a NC35 ish olive skin tone and it is a tad light, but after bronzer and powder it looked perfect.
Silky Highlighter BB Touch $25.50
Ok this one is a BB Cream for your whole face to make your face look 'glowy', but I use it just as a highlighter. I LOVE it. A lot of highlighters are overly shimmery and sparkly. This one just brightens and smooths. (my gigantic pores look pretty! haha!) I love how it dispenses, although I dot it on and blend it in with my fingers... something about BB Creams, I feel like they work the best when you apply with your fingers, but that's just me! It apparently is suppose to make your face look slimmer. I might need a bigger tube to slap this on my love handles! hahahha!!
Dollish Veil Vita BB in Green $21.99
DAAAAAANG GINA! ok this might be one of my new must haves for life. I got this makeup base in green...and its like making my face a blank, CLEAN canvas for my makeup. I love it. I have a lot of red splotches and age spots and I feel like it really evens it out. It doesn't completely cover everything, but I feel like it makes my skin "ready" to be covered up. After I apply I do my normal foundation routine and everything looks flawless...and it lasts! I did so much the other day in 113 degree weather with non air conditioning, and at the end of the day I must say.. I looked pretty dang good! haha!
So I really wanted to do a separate review for each product and make myself look 'prettier' so you could really see the amazingness of each of these products, but I think the true testament is to see me after a long, hot, sweaty day.. still looking OK.
You will definitely see me talking about these again!!! woot woot~
