Ok, here goes.. This is the Lioele Beyond The Solution BB Cream (the regular one without SPF indicated). The one with SPF is Lioele Triple The Solution BB Cream.
I first heard about this BB cream at frmheadtotoe's youtube video long, long ago and I put it into my to-try BB cream list. During my crazy BB cream spree period somewhere back in October, this is one of the ones I got of ebay from a Korean seller. I got the sample size (30ml) in case it breaks me out.
Around RM34 including shipping for a 30ml tube. The picture shown above is a 50ml size one.

This BB cream has a semi-thick consistency. It is not as thick/creamy feeling like L'egere Multi White but slightly thicker than Missha Perfect Cover.

It comes in one shade only. I would say that this BB cream matches people with MAC NC20-25 the best. Matches my NC20 skin quite ok and doesn't oxidize much on me throughout the day. I will be even happier if it is slightly lighter. This BB cream has more peachy warm undertones and is not as grey as the Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream.

it matches nicely with my skin
Smells a bit like light baby powder.
This is one of the higher coverage BB creams I've tried. I give it a rating of 6/10 in terms of coverage (medium to high coverage and it is buildable). Covers most of my hyperpigmentations and evens out my skintone very well.
BB cream only. No powder on top..
It doesn't emphasize my pores and bumps and gives me a very natural finish. I can see a healthy glow on my skin. Not as glowy as L'egere but not as matte as Missha. Something in between. Towards midday, I need to blot a bit but that's very normal for me. Some foundations makes me way oilier than this. Recently I start setting my nose and cheeks with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and that kinda helps. Just thought I'll mention this... The finish is slightly sticky throughout the day but a light dusting of powder can take care of that.

I usually apply with my Sigma F80 (i know you're sick of hearing F80 lol). I stipple it on and buff a bit like how I apply L'egere Multi White BB Cream. A thin layer all over is the best for me. Applying too much makes me look cakey. I tried applying with clean fingers as well and the results are just as good.
This BB cream doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Doesn't break me out and is quite lasting. Without primer, it stays on fairly well throughout the day except for my nose area due to the oiliness. It is also moisturizing. At the end of the day when I take it off, my skin feels soft and nice. I really like this BB cream. It is so far the best I've tried in 2011. Running closely behind would be the Missha and the L'egere one.
It doesn't indicate any SPF but it doesn't bother me as I'm already used to wearing a separate sunscreen underneath. I will re-buy this in the full size. But ahhh... I said the same thing with the Missha BB cream but I have not repurchase that til now because I'm busy trying out other BB creams. There are so many new BB creams in the market to discover and to try! I'll surely come back to this.. sometime.. in the future.. :P
Have you tried this one before? Do you like it as much as I do?
Until the next post, XOXO~
