Mini Review: Skin79 The Oriental Shining Pearl BB Cream Plus

Hi everyone! =]
 I have another sample today, and it's from Skin79. Skin79 is well known for their Hot Pink BB Cream other similar range of BB Creams. The one I have here is The Oriental Shining Pearl BB Cream Plus, the name sounds like it will be a BB cream that adds glow to the face. Read on to see my first impression and product info! :D

Front, shiny gold package.

English product description.

Full product is 20 ml.
The price is around $10-15 CAD.


Blended in.

Under different lighting. There is so much glitter! Even more noticeable in person.

First Impression:
Way too much glitter! OAO I knew there was going to be some shining properties judging by the product name, too much for my liking. The colour matches my skin quite well though, but it only comes in one tone. The texture was smooth and creamy, and blended well. The full product looks interesting as it comes in a tube with a brush end. But they should've named this product Shining Diamond instead of Pearl, since it makes the skin sparkle and not pearly. :P

Will I Purchase the Full Product?
No, and the only reason is that it's too sparkly, otherwise I think it's a decent BB cream.


Have you tried this product? Or would want to try it? I would love to know your thought on it.
So stressed recently because of exams t.t, but only 2 more to go and I'm done! Hurray!
Thanks for reading, and see you next post~ ;D

  2. Ihave one powder that is too sparkly, and it makes my face look just crazy x3 perhaps it's the same effect with that BB cream.

  6. Ooo, too bad this has so much glitter. =-= I can see that in the pictures too! Otherwise, it probably would be okay. =/
    Thanks for sharing about this one! Skin79 has been mainly a miss for me. Their other BB creams are really popular, but for some reason, they just don't work well for me.

    1. Ya their BB creams are popular because it's sort of the "beginner" BB cream lol, I started out with one of their BB creams too, I guess it's cause it's relatively more accessible, and they are seen everywhere. I think they are alright, but there's definitely better ones out there.
      Thanks for follow! <3 ^o^

  9. I guess it could be used as a highlighter, but the glitter particles are kinda big, so still very disco-ball ish haha D: thanks for reading!
