I changed the colour scheme of the blog for a more simpler look, and the navigation is now on the side, nothing major, just less pinks and purples now. I'm planning to revamp the layout a bit by bit, as I learn how to code and Photoshop. :P
Also I have a Etude House BB Cream giveaway here, if you want to check that out. :P
Anyways, I'm finally getting some time off from studying, since next Monday is a holiday here in Canada, Woohoo! So gonna do lots of reviews this weekend. :3
Ok on to main topic, today I will be reviewing the Lioele Miniature Special Set that I won from Tangerine Babi (check out her blog ;) a couple of weeks ago. This is the first time I'm trying a Lioele product, so I'm really excited! I have tried all the BB Creams, Base, and Sunscreen from this set, so read on too see my review! :D
Bright pink packaging, great as a gift for someone who wants to try out BB creams. :)

It's great that there's English instructions and ingredients on the package. I wish more Korean brands had HQs internationally, so products can be manufactured with English on them, so it can be accessible to more people. :D
From left to right: Lioele Fresh Sunscreen, Lioele Blooming Simmer Pearl Base, Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream, Lioele Water Drop BB Cream.
The sunscreen is obviously just white. The base is pinkish with some simmer. The Beyond the Solution BB Cream is a bit darker than my arm. And the Water Drop BB Cream really is what its name implies, I don't know if you can see it, but when I blended it there were white water droplets forming! The shade also matches my arm better than Beyond the Solution BB.
Everything blended pretty nicely except the Beyond the Solution BB Cream, which is too dark for my arm. :P
Lioele Fresh Sunscreen
"With SPF45/PA++, it protects your skin from UVA, UVB at the same time. It lasts long without stickyness."
I really like this sunscreen! It's not sticky at all just like it claims, and goes on my skin very smoothly. When it dries it doesn't leave any trace of sunscreen residue or heaviness, so it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing any sunscreen at all! With the high SPF45, I think it's great under make up, especially during the summer when the sun is most intense. The only thing I'm not too found of is the scent. It's hard to describe, but it has a refreshing, clean scent that is very sharp and potent, which lingers in my nose. ~_~ It doesn't smell bad, but it's a bit too strong, so good thing it fades over time. :) I'm not too sure about how long this lasts, since I can't really tell if it fades, but it claims to last all day. I would still reapply after a few hours if I'm going to be out in a sunny day for a long period of time. :P
Lioele Blooming Simmer Pearl Base
"Illuminating primer! Our highly concentrated Shimmering Pearl Base gives your skin a radiant, glossy finish."
Before and after base.
Never really looked at my skin up close, but now I see I have a lot of black heads near my nose. t.t
This base when first squeezed out looks like a baby pink pearl, very pretty. :P It's easy to blend out just like the sunscreen, and is not sticky, and light. The simmers are more apparent and separates as I blended it, however the glitters in this base are very fine, unlike the Skin79 BB Cream that I've tried, so you won't look like a disco ball. :D It does give a nice glowing effect, and made my face look brighter. From the before/after picture above it does look like it covered a minimal amount of my imperfections, but since it's a base, I don't expect it to have perfect coverage anyways. But ya, it's a pretty good base, since it sort of smoothed my skin too. The scent to this is similar to the sunscreen but much fainter. So overall I really like this. :)
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream
"Long lasting BB Cream soothes, and keeps skin smooth and less oily for fair complexion."
Before and after BB cream.
I think my face looks redder in the after picture because of lighting, and not the BB Cream being too dark.
I though this BB Cream would be too dark for me judging but the arm swatch, but after applying it on my face it matched my skin quite nicely. :D My face is just a few shades darker than my arm. haha
Like the sunscreen and base, this BB Cream follows the same easily to blend, non-sticky, and light feeling it gives. I'm really starting to love Lioele!
From the picture above, the coverage looks great. My pores and most of my freckles and sun spots are covered or at least evened out. It also gives a smooth silky feeling after it has set. The wear is also pretty good, I wore this for a whole day, and I think it only faded a bit. My face didn't get too oily either, so good oil control like it claimed. Overall I give this a thumbs up! :D
Lioele Water Drop BB Cream
"It is an exclusive moisturizing BB cream which makes your skin moist since water drop, which is generated when you apply it to skin, is well absorbed into your skin."
Before and after BB Cream.
Ooh this is the BB Cream I was most excited to try! I've heard many great reviews on this, and I think it does live up to its hype. I was really intrigued by the fact that there was water drops forming while blending this in, never tried anything like it before! :D It felt very refreshing and cooling. And like all the previous creams, it was easy to blend, lightweight and non-sticky too. The coverage is great, considering how sheer it feels. From the picture above you can see it really covered my pores, and my skin looks like it has been airbrushed haha~ I was really pleasantly surprised! The wear is good, but I think it faded faster than the Beyond the Solution BB Cream. I don't mind, because I love applying this just to see the water drop forming LOL. xD This also contains SPF27/PA++ so you could skip sunscreen. Overall I love this, and will probably purchase it when I'm in need of BB Cream. :)
I'm really impressed with this first impression (impressed impression ~_~) of Lioele! I really have no complaints on any of the products in this set. I will look out for more of their products in the future. :D
I totally would recommend this if you want to try some of the Lioele products or give it was a gift!
- Easy to blend
- Great coverage
- Get to try 4 different products!
- The scent is quite strong in some of the products
Phew that was quite long. :D Hope it was enjoyable or useful in some way!
Have you tried any of these products or want to? I sure loved them. ^^
Thank you all for reading!
I'll see you soon on the next post~
