Review & Giveaway: Skin79 Gold VIP BB Cream


Skin79 Korean Gold VIP BB Cream

If you've read the beauty posts on my blog over the years then you will know that I am constantly on the search for a foundation that will match my skin tone. So a few years ago I turned to the Korean bb creams that were slowly becoming more and more popular, across Asia and the rest of the world.

It's safe to say that apart from a certain colour supplement (that I shall be reviewing shortly), I have had the most luck with BB Creams over Western foundations. After the lovely 'Smokey Eyes MUA' recommended I try Skin79's Gold VIP BB Cream I rushed off to buy some, in the hopes that it would be the miracle I had been waiting for!

Swatches - straight from bottle, and blended.

Unfortunately this bb cream was too dark for my skin tone. 
It did change tone slightly after I applied it, but it didn't match my skin enough.
Actually it was quite visible that I was wearing it, even after I had blended it and added powder etc.
The coverage wasn't bad and it did make my skin look smooth, and didn't feel cake-y but it was just too dark.

I decided not to do such a lengthly review this time as the product just didn't suit me or work with my skin, 
so I don't feel like I could write a proper review on the product.

However I have decided to do a giveaway for the above bottle of Skin79 Gold VIP BB Cream from Korea.

THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
