I'm not one of those people that are super crazy about using foundation daily, I just find them too messy and time-consuming. This BB cream has been in my wishlist for the longest time but the £18 price tag puts me off and since they had so many options (four) it took me forever to pick one. Nonetheless, a few weeks ago, all Dr. Jart range was 50% off and after hearing so many good reviews I decided to try it for myself. I have had high expectation for this because it's originated from Korea and as you probably know that Korean are known for their flawless skin (I think so anyway!). So, this product technically was made for Asian skin and as you know, I'm Asian...
I love Dr. Jart's packaging, it has the lovely blue metallic, shiny, reflective box and tube. Everything about is just very pretty. Water Fuse variation is aimed at oily/combination skin. However, I have very dry skin but this works wonder for me. It is oil free and has SPF 25 which is great for me because when I'm in England, I never really bother to put on sun cream.
The consistency is great because it is quite thick but it also feels very light on the skin. It is very hydrating and long lasting as well. It gives great coverage with an effect of dewy skin. Whilst I'm wearing this I don't really feel the need to set it with powder because I really like the finish (which is shown down below!).
At first I was a little bit worried that the one shade suits all would be too light for me but surprisingly I think that once it has been blended properly, it works well in evening out my skin. I do find that I still need concealer to cover the more problematic areas such as under eyes, nose and around the mouth.
Here, is the picture of me without any make-up and just woken up face. Excuse the miserable face...
I don't know why I'm making a a surprised face here (Yes, that's my surprised face...don't judge me). This is my face with the BB cream and some concealer (I applied the concealer under the BB cream because when I applied the concealer on top of the BB cream, the concealer looked quite cakey and didn't blend too well).
Voila, this is my finished look. For this look I used Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Medium, Cyber Color eyebrow pen in Brown, MUA Eye Primer, On and on bronze Maybelline Colour Stay, Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner, Benefit They're Real! Mascara, Nars blusher in Deep Throat and Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Staim in Lovesick.
Overall, I'd repurchase this in a heart beat because it's perfect for everyday use. It's lightweight, gives dewy finish (which I love), long-lasting which is great a long uni day, it has SPF, I think it works well with my skin tone (being a NC25 by the MAC standard), it's hydrating and moisturising. I just love this product a lot! I'm so glad I brought into the hype!
Hope you have enjoyed this review.
