BB creams have always fascinated me…I know that they have connections to Europe and Asia originally, but now many major make up brands have released their own versions (which I believe are basically tinted moisturisers, but that’s a different debate!)
I have often heard about the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream, and really wanted to try it out. I was worried that it would be a little too dark for my skin tone, so I bought some sample sachets from eBay!
As soon as I saw the packaging, I fell a little bit in love…it looks like Cinderella’s carriage and you can’t go wrong with pink!
I decided to just go for it and apply the Lioele BB Cream all over my face and neck and give it a good blend!
I absolutely adored the texture of the cream – it felt thick enough to cover but not thick enough to be a foundation. The shade of the cream on my hand looked rather dark but I still decided to give it a fair trial…
The verdict? I felt that it was a tad too dark for me – I know it doesn’t seem it in the photo but I felt quite uncomfortable wearing it! I’m very used to having a foundation that is the exact same shade as my skin (my beloved Illamasqua Skin Base) so it was very noticeable in my eyes.
I would thoroughly recommend to people with darker skin tones than me to try this BB Craem – it only comes in one shade, and I have to say that it does do its best to blend to your skin tone, but I’m too pale a customer for it to cater to!
The finish is absolutely gorgeous – very silky and even. I wish they made a lighter version!
Have you tried the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream? What do you think of it?
