This is for one of the members who requested a comparison between Western and East Asian BB Creams.
Here is a nice swatch of the 3 BB Creams that I have.
From left to right:
1. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light SPF 30
2. Skin79 Dream Girls BB Cream SPF 30
3. Skinfood Betula Alba BB Cream SPF 35
As you can see, I`m VERY pale skinned. My friends tell me I`m as pale as the wall or a piece of paper.
You can also see that the color that matches me the best is the Skinfood Betula Alba BB Cream. (It`s also a men`s BB cream. Out of all the BB creams they had, THIS was the only one that was closest to my skin color).
The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream made me orange! Someone asked if I got a tan over the weekend!
In terms of coverage - I preferred the Skinfood and Skin79 one over the Maybelline one because they were actually more sheer. I found the Maybelline one very thick, but in a weird way. Instead of helping to even out my skin tone, it enhanced the differences and you could actually see my pores. Even without makeup, you could not see my pores! I think its because it`s too dark for me. =(
After about 5 hrs at the office, I noticed that my skin looked dewy. However, when I touched it, it was dry. It was...weird.
So yea, I`m glad I only spent $7 on it. I will try blending it in with my sunscreens to make it lighter and more sheer. I really hate wasting products.
After trying out Western BB cream, I think I`ll stick to my Korean brands. But that`s just me.
