THIS WEEK IN BB CREAM: SKIN79 DIAMOND COLLECTION PEARL LUMINOUS BEBELISH BALM

 This is the last of my bb sample set from Skin79.  I think I saved the best for last.
Literature I found online regarding this bb:
from: Sasa
Skin 79 Diamond Collection Luminous Pearl Beblesh Balm is a brush-up Beblesh Balm that performs a gorgeous look with pearly glow.
With the patented Nano Silk Particle and the specially-designed brush, it allows better adherence for a fine and glowing makeup finish. Various nutrients are contained for healthy and dewy skin.
how to use it:
Suggested skin care routine: cleanser>toner>lotion> Luminous Pearl Beblesh Balm
Apply a proper amount. Blend it evenly to entire face. For areas with enlarged pores or blemish, tip the cream on troubled points for better concealing effect. Afterwards, you may apply loose powder or foundation for a long-lasting nude makeup look.
To clean the brush: Rotate and take out the brush. Wash it with neutral cleanser. Towel dry. When it is completely dry, you may reinstall the brush.

this is one pricey bb then with all those precious minerals. LOL
It starts out your regular bb/foundation
 but that finish, let me just say it's better than my photoready.  this is smooth and not as chunky.
 yet you still see of the shimmers
 on my face, it brightens up the tops of my cheeks,  but unfortunately just like the photoready, this provides very little coverage.
 not too reflective with flash photography.
 once applied on my entire face and finished with my current finishing powder.
this actually reminds me, as in really reminds me of the lioele highlighter bb and they are even packaged the same as well.
Likes:
  • the finish - it's slightly finer than my photoready
  • consistency is foundationy so it's easy to apply, not chunky
  • does not cake up
  • actually lasted all day despite the supposed shiny shimmering splendor
  • i only have to blot the oil from my nose and forhead once in an entire shift.
  • didn't break me out
  • not reflective in flash photography 
  • BUT is actually brightening
  • did not accent my pores (make my pores look bigger)
  • very mild scent
Dislikes:
  • no sun protection
  • light coverage, as in very very light coverage 
  • funny ingredients with equally amusing description
  • in the Philippines this is not readily available and have to be ordered online
Do I recommend this? yes, to those who have near perfect skin and want a subtle dewy finish
Will I purchase the full size?  probably the compact :P

Have you found any luminous bb creams with medium/high coverage? I liked the shine on this Skin79 Pearl BB cream, but didn't like the almost non-existent coverage.  After wearing thick foundation, I have become accustomed to a flawless, almost photo-ready look, so for me, this is way too sheer, almost non-existent.  I'm hoping there's a thicker formula with the glitter!

sorry for the awful pictures, the light(sun) and my cam was not working with me that day.
but pretty much the lioele one has way more coverage than this one from skin79 ;-)

Great! Thanks for your advice.  Have you tried Skin79's Diamond Prestige BB cream? It seems to have pretty good reviews, but I have no idea about how much coverage it has (I tried looking for it on your page but didn't find it, so I was wondering if maybe you had tried it but hadn't gotten around to reviewing it).  I wish they would sell these in the U.S...by the time I get it all the way from Korea, I may have run out of my sample pack of BB cream :(
