BB cream in 010 Light/Pale shade

When applied

After 10 minutes (it looks a bit darker than my skintone but it evens out and livens up my pale complexion so it's really not an issue for me, since it has a very light coverage it doesn't really darken my face so much)

Natural lighting (no flash)


  • Yellow undertone
  • Light reflective pigments made my skin look healthy (not shiny, oily or overly dewy), improved my overall skintone
  • Non greasy and did not make my skin oily
  • Feels very light on the skin 
  • Perfect for everyday use
  • Did not break me out
  • Very natural looking
  • Available locally

  • Very light coverage (you will need to use concealer for blemishes and pigmentation)
  • A tad darker than my skintone

Overall Take
This product I  lives up to its name being a skin perfector since it does just that- It made my skin look healthy under any lighting conditions and gave it a subtle glow/sheen. I love that it has a yellow undertone so it would suit most Asian skintones pretty well. It does not however give much of a coverage so you will need to use concealer or powder foundation over it. This is the lightest shade they have but it's still a bit darker than my skintone although it really did not cause me any problems since it has a very light coverage so it did not darken my face so much but instead gave me a more livelier color.  I think this product can also be used as a makeup base/primer also since it has a light diffusing and skintone enhancing effect. I have combination skin and it did keep the oilies at bay and the shimmer/light reflective particles did not highlight my pores.

Would I recommend this? Yes if you don't need that much coverage. This is perfect for everyday use since it feels so light and non greasy.
