THIS WEEK IN BB CREAM: TONY MOLY GODDESS AURA BB CREAM AND AURA BEAM

I'm back to my bb cream review after about a couple week's rest from applying any other cream on face apart from the house of obagi skin hydrating cream.
I got this free after purchasing other items from Tony Moly Philippines at one of the local malls in Metro Manila
this is the aura beam.  so hmmm it's like a lip gloss


and here's the bb cream.
i love the coverage of this thing! it covered the green vein.
and just like the back of my hand it evened out the my skin tone, and i hardly need under eye concealer with this on
and a pic of me with the flash on.  it's not reflective and the shade it's close to the shade of skin of my neck.
and my entire face with the bb cream and my blush of the week
Likes:

  • great coverage
  • shade match almost as fair as the skin of my neck
  • has a scent but hardly discernible 
  • i hardly need any concealer under my eyes
  • lasts all day
  • does not break me out
  • does not cake up
  • spf 37 pa ++ good enough if you're staying inside the office anyway
  • doesn't pool up on my pores (where you get puddles of foundation or bb cream on your visible pores LOL)
  • doesn't make your facial hairs obvious
  • so the last two bullets what do i mean? i'm pretty sure i'm not the only person who's ever experienced seeing your facial hair with foundation around them, what my last two bullets mean is that this is one of those bb creams that's really easy to blend out ;-)
  • semi matte finish so at least it's not flat
  • locally available where you can find a tony moly store/kiosk
  • only 700 for something that's 45 g
  • very little if any oxidation throughout the day
Dislikes
  • the aura beam, seriously it's like the wanna love lip gloss! so it feels like your spreading lip gloss on your face with some really fine glitter
  • oil control of the bb cream is so so, i still have to blot my oil from nose about twice a shift and to think i'm in an airconditioned office
  • the god awful packaging it's just like:
which kinda means that the bb cream will ooze out of the tube since this is an upside down bottle, so you'll always end up with wastage around the nozzle and in the cap.  but i guess it's the not so great packaging that kept the price of this aura bb cream low
i'd've wanted to buy the full size of this bb cream except for the packaging. this bb cream really reminds me of my elisha coy always baby bb cream ;-)

I am using missha`s BB cream but looks like tony moly bb cream is very light does it cover well?  

Marge said...

 this is medium to heavy coverage.  i like it, i just dislike the packaging.  ^_^

Dawn said...

Woah. I was about to buy this bb cream when I last visited their store. Sayang. I should have kasi it somehow performs good pala. :P

Marge said...

yep, it's pretty decent, and for the price, yep, yung container/dispenser lang ang chaka.
i just don't like the aura, so yeah, malang sa malamang di ko rin bibilhin yung nymph aura
ey, you watching big bang ba? confirmed na sila dito later in the year ^_^ nood tayo!

Marge said...

 naku parang lip gloss lang talaga inihalo sa bb cream or foundation to make it more iridescent, eh yun lang ang lagkit =(
wait ma side by side nga habang di pa tuyo LOL
wow! fantastic baby! let's watch na yan. kaso baka di kayanin ng araneta, so you know what that means sm arena na yan since may hydraulics ek ek

Dawn said...

Kahit saan pa yan, tatahakin para lang makita sila. Haha! Yung friend ko sure na daw na aabsent sa med school para makanuod. :))

Marge said...

yep, gora na ^_^

Clair said...

super lagkit ba? :( graah. ayoko ng super sticky sa fez.

Marge said...

yep, medyo lang, di naman sa naglagkit ako pero i prefer the pearly iridescence to come from the bb itself instead of another step like this one ;-)
i'll compare it to the nymph aura fr EH this week ^_^

Clair said...

I use my sample sized Girl Meets Pearl. More of parang pearl base ata siya ng lioele pero I use it to highlight sa may cheekbones and nose. Not sticky kasi konti lang kita agad yung glow. Will wait for your post on EH's Nymph Aura. :)

Marge said...

oooh i think i have the pearl base ng lioele? i hope? LOL ow, baka skin79 yun, hehehe
ok, nalimutan ko lang kunan ng picture yung nymph aura today lol :P

Clair said...

Yung pearl base ko, sample hehehe. O di ba. Saya bumili sa mga online shops na namimigay ng free samples din. XDDD (Sa yo ko nakuha yung tip na yan hahaha!)

Oooh. So soon na ang Nymph Aura review? Di ko pa maisip gamitin yung sample ko ng Nymph Aura dahil mas madalas akong nasa labas ng office lately.

Marge said...

hahaha soon, hopefully by tomorrow i completely forgot to photograph it today LOL

Clair said...

Naku, sa totoo lang nakakalimutan kong mag-picture ng stuff kaya di ako maka-post ng reviews :)) Kaloka di ba?

Marge said...

hahahah guilty tas pag uwi sa bahay, tinatamad na ko LOL
pag tinatamad ko mag blog at photoshop for the watermark of pix, usually i end up blogging with the android na lang hahaha
well, it works ;-)

Clair said...

Exactly hahaha. Pero minsan after ko mag-exercise, wala na. Di ko na kayang mag-picture kahit gamit yung phone :)) Diretsong shower, basa ng facebook at tulog na. Kaya di na ako laging nakakapag-comment sa blogs. At pag nag-fail pa yung internet sa bahay, di na ma-post yung comment hahahaha. Happened to me a lot this summer.XD

Marge said...

ako naman di na maka youtube, super bagal ng internet samin, :'(
