[CLOSED] GIVEAWAY! + Review: Etude House Bling in the Sea Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a very special post! :D
I am collaborating with my new sponsor Cosmetic-Love.com, an online Korean beauty shop to hold a giveaway! *u*

The giveaway item is the Etude House Bling in the Sea Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream! To enter please scroll down, some information and rules will also be there. 

But first, I will also be doing a review on this product as well, thanks to Cosmetic-love.com for sending me this to try! As you may have known, I have reviewed the original Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream. So I decided to give my friend Sinzi this BB cream. 
So I'll be 'interviewing' her and asking her some questions on this. 
It'll be interesting to see how this BB cream works on oily/combination skin on Sinzi, as opposed to my normal skin type. ^^

 Keep reading for the review and giveaway! :D 
 The packaging is very similar to the original packaging, aside from the Bling in the Sea logo.
Like the colour scheme. :)

The back, it has SPF50+/PA+++, quite nice. Still same as the original. I believe the BB cream is the same as original, just repackaged. 

The sides still has the same instructions, with English. :D

The bottle on the inside, only the colours changed and the logo, no other changes are apparent. 

The sponge, and like the original, can be taken off to squeeze the BB cream out directly if you want.

Sinzi's face, before and after. :D
Sinzi: Hmm looks really good, really covers la pores. :D

Ok now on to the 'interview'.   ^o^

Chee: So how did this BB cream feel when you first applied it? 
Sinzi: It's pretty liquidy and not thick, so it's easy to blend out and not cakey. And it felt a bit dry on the nose and chin, especially on areas where there are stuff coming out of the pores. lol
(Make sure your pores are clean! :D)

Chee:  How was the oil control?
Sinzi: Good oil control. Face felt less oily through out the day. Or maybe face produced less oil? Or maybe it dried up skin more? I guess I have oily dry combo skin. 
(That's quite a combination! xD)

Chee: How was the coverage?
Sinzi: It's good for people with decent skin, the coverage is quite light. So the coverage might be too light for scars, or large pimple, hehe.  The colour was light at first but adjusted afterwards. Also it's important to get the right shade! If you are tan and use a lighter shade it may appear to have ghostly effect.

Chee: How long did the BB cream last?
Sinzi: Hmmm last time I wore it I was out for like 5 hours and cam home, my face was still white (not literally white) lol. So it lasts pretty long since I didn't put anything under it except for cream.

Chee: Anything else you would like to add?
Sinzi:  The scent is hard to tell what it is, but it's not strong, so it's good. And after a couple of whiffs, I can't even smell it anymore. I also like to squeeze out the BB cream to apply it than using the sponge, so I really like the fact that they made it to have this option.
Overall, it's good for evening out the skin tone, such as pores and redness, but not deep coverage, yes that's how I wanted to phrase it. :D

Ah okay! That's it for the 'interview' review! xD 
Hope it was a nice change from just listening to me reviewing stuff! haha

I will pass for this giveaway and let others have the chance wile I try to finish up my current BB cream. I've been abstaining from make up for a while due to an eye infection. And somehow when I wear glasses, I avoid applying make up too.
