    Wow the coverage is really quite stunning for a bbcream! When u say 2refills for 145 does t mean u get 30g or 45g of products? It is quite at the expensive side if it is 30g and dries that fast.. since I don’t makeup everyday, it will be qute a waste for me to get this.

      Hi Gin, you get 30g split into 2 15g tubs. I’d say its quite pricey since it does seem to dry out quite quickly, but if uses it everyday then the pain is less to bear :) I like it for hot weather or if I know I’m going to be out walking and sweating because at least I know it stays on :)

      Right?! Glad you agree :D I keep thinking mine is drying out but when I press the sponge in, there’s still colour so maybe I’m mistaken :P

    Sounds good..but it dries out so fast…
    For a person like me who don make up so often, it will be expensive =(
    Anyway, have you tried their other products?

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      Yes if you don’t wear makeup often then it would not make sense to get this :) Which other products do you mean? I have tried some of their moisturizing skincare products but makeup wise, I’m not quite wowed by the selection. I am sort of curious about their foundations though so I might give that a go in the future. Have you tried anything from Laneige yet?

        ehh sorry to butt into this convo :p saw your question about their foundations – i have the laneige snow crystal dual foundation and it is nothing to shout about at that price bracket – colour is a little too orange/warm, quite sheer and doesn’t really even out skintone. find it a little oily too!

        Butt in all you want :D I was quite concerned about the tone as well. I find that Laneige foundations tend to be a bit warm and since I’m cool *ahem* I was afraid it’d look too yellow. Will try to snag a sample and see how I like it :)

    Well, I have walked past Laniege counters many times and saw this on their display rack. Knowing that its a BB kinda makes me skeptical about the coverage as well as the shade. All BBs I have used before (ok not that many but enough to put me off lol) turn out grey or white or ‘weird’ colour on me. So this is a good review and MAYBE it might change my mind about BBs. Not that I need another base makeup but no harm swatching hehe ;)

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      I know exactly what you mean by turning grey. It was what put me off many BB creams at the beginning, until the Westerners started putting out BB creams with a bit of a pink tint and suddenly, I could wear BB Cream without looking like a zombie! :D This one has yellow tint but its got a brightening effect so I don’t get a zombie tint. Always worth swatching and seeing if it works ;)

    Sounds lovely! Too bad it dries out so fast. I have a few bottles of foundation to go through and sounds like you have to use this daily to get the most out of your buck. Otherwise, I’d probably jump at picking it up. Its been so hot lately, I’ve been using powder foundation.

      July 2, 2012

      Yep, its definitely one for daily use else it’d just be too expensive! For occasional base users, I think the regular liquids and powders work best :) I was wearing powder lately too, but there was a day when I had to be out and it was hot, and I was sweating, and that was pretty much the end of my foundation LOL! :D

    Well it does not look too dark at all! Having said that, I’ve just got myself a bottle of foundation heh heh heh. Will have to go through some amount before I get another one ^.^

      Haha I don’t think I”ve ever really made much in road into liquid foundation. It never seems to ever finish! I’ve finished up quite a few powder foundations though so maybe it evens out :P Which new one did you get? :)

      • Hanny
        July 2, 2012

        The MAC Pro Longwear. I still can’t commit myself to the MUFE HD. Well, now I’m praying that it will still be there when I can really afford it heh heh.

        I’m sure it’ll still be there or if not, a new incarnation that may be better, hopefully! I’ve never tried the MUFE HD myself. Or any MUFE foundations for that matter!

    Wow…that looks interesting! And the coverage is actually pretty good. I just bought the Dior Snow BB Creme tho (after reading your review about it hehe!), so guess this will have to wait…>_<

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      Haha are you liking the Dior BB Creme? Did you get the original or the light one? I find the light one fits me better colour wise but their texture is quite similar :)

      • sooyin
        July 2, 2012

        I bought the light one. Even then, the color still looked pretty dark, but it blended well on the back of my hand. However, when I applied it on my face, it looked a tad bit too dark which is strange coz I think both our skin color is pretty similar (ie. leaning on the fair side).

        So what I’ve been doing is to use less and blend it with the Clarins UV Plus Day Screen before applying and it looks much better. I find it does help to control oiliness, my skin is more matte even towards the evening…=)

      • Paris B
        July 6, 2012

        Ooh that IS strange! I found that the Light version gave a much more brightening effect than the original one. But I hope it works for you nonetheless :)

    I’ve been reading a lots of reviews and raves on this BB cream. Too bad it dries within a month. That’s expensive for a product that last for a month. My usuall BB cream lasted me for god-knows-how-long. ;p

      Yup, most liquid ones last pretty much forever. But I think its the composition in this so its great stuff but pricey in the long run :P

    July 2, 2012

    huh, looks quite interesting but yes, a little gimmicky too. Looks like it holds so little product! I feel like I’ve seen something similar to this before, but for the life of me I can’t remember where….a very old drugstore foundation perhaps? Who knows, it looks really natural on you though!

      An Almay foundation I bought in the US circa 2006 or so had sponge packaging as well. Maybe that’s what’s you’re thinking of?

      I *think* it’s this one, don’t think I’ve actually seen it in stores since. At the time I bought it it was on clearance for a $1.

      It holds 15g in each tub and you get 2 tubs which isn’t too bad, considering a normal bottle of foundation is 30ml :) But it does dry out more quickly mostly due to the wider area of exposure. I think its a fun thing to have, but definitely not a must have.

    quite a unique product PB but the look on photo gives me a tiny bit of goosebumps! LOL

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      LOL!!! I know what you mean! I can’t look at it too long either :P

    July 2, 2012

    wow…liked the before and after ones!!! it really works. but, you can’t skip sunscreen coz one can’t really apply a lot of the product, right??? I have never seen any product with cooling claims…didn’t know they even exist :D but, then, the cooling doesn’t stay for long so exactly not a great one…may be they put some menthol or something in it which feels cool initially!! it does feel nice when one is burning, though :)

      Nope I never recommend skipping sunscreen but there are people who don’t like using sunscreen for whatever reason so maybe… just maybe this might be what they’re looking for LOL! :D Its actually surprisingly good. I wasn’t expecting it to function very well :P

    July 2, 2012

    oh, it’s nice to hear that this is good! I am also skeptical about this. haha. But I am so glad it works.

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      I know! When I saw this, I thought I wouldn’t bother using it. I”m glad I did :)

    July 2, 2012

    Interesting! From the before and after photo I think the coverage is very good! and if you mentioned bout not oily and matte finishing, that’s what I looking for! guess it can be one of my favorite too.. =p
    if one tube can only last for on month, RM145 is kinda expensive right? normally bb cream is something that I can never finish up, but this one seems different.. hmmm..

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      Yup! Its pricey if you don’t plan on using it daily. RM145 gets you 2 tubs :) The finish and texture is really good and I think its the texture that is quite different from the BB creams that come in a tube. Those feel a bit heavier. But coverage wise its really nice and has a nice brightening effect :) Maybe you can wait till there’s a counter promo? I know Laneige gives very good GWPs and one doesnt’ have to spend a lot. On the bright side, here’s a makeup product I’d actually finish! :D

    July 2, 2012

    ohhh, the texture of that blue puff looks very similar to beauty blender sponge! perhaps they’re the same?
    you should definitely check out this other brand – innisfree. their melting foundation is quite similar to this bb. and i kept on thinking of maybe these two are very similar product since they’re under the same parent company? hmmm

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      I haven’t tried the beauty blender sponge, but the blue sponge is a thin rubbery material so if the beauty blender is the same then it might be the same technology :) I’ll bear Innisfree in mind. I’m not too good with Korean brands – can never keep up!

  16. Sunny
    July 2, 2012

    Interesting! I’ll have to check Laneige out when I’m in Taipei, though I don’t really need anything with an SPF50 living here (I think 30 is generous enough for the amount of “sun” that I get… or don’t get)!

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      LOL!! You barely see any sun right? I remember when I visited Brussels. It was fine for a couple of hours and then it was just raining away. So I don’t recall much of it except the food because we enjoyed staying out of the rain so much! Haha!

      • Sunny
        July 2, 2012

        Oh trust me you have seen about the best part of it :p

        We see SOME sun sometimes, but honestly it’s been very gray and cold this year. SPF30 is really generous enough!

  17. Sze Ling
    July 2, 2012

    Ooo…I saw this quite same time ago, but thought it was a bit gimmicky. And I don’t like using the same sponge over and over again. So, those 2 reasons have prevented me from giving this a try. Plus, as you already know, I’m yet to jump on the BB-bandwagon. :P

      Haha I was a latecomer to the BB bandwagon. Was all dead set against it till Dior and Garnier (surprise surprise!) came on the scene. Since then, I’ve worked out what works and what doesn’t and generally, Korean ones don’t work… well until this one ;) The sponge is washable, and I think its about the same as using it with a powder foundation but then, I’m a wee bit grubby I guess hehe… ;)

  18. ANITA Choi
    July 2, 2012

    Oh, do you like it? It is also Best item in KOREA. also it is my mom’s favorite. kkk… but i feel some oily when i using this.

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      Hi Anita, seriously? Its a top seller in Korea? I can see why because the coverage is really good and natural. I don’t get the oily feel, but then again, I don’t have oily skin so maybe that’s why. I probably have similar skin with your Mom! LOL!! :D

    July 2, 2012

    OMG, I been dying to try this but couldnt decide whether should I get it or not. I think the whole cushion thing sound really cool and there are lots of other brands pushing the same kind of product out too :/ so I cant decide which one to pick up!

    Good thing that you made a review on this :D help loads!

      I’m glad you found this useful Helz! I didn’t know there were other brands using similar packaging but if they are Korean brands then I’m not surprised because their products are all so similar! LOL! I do like this one though so I hope you will too if you get to try it :)

  20. Jesz
    July 2, 2012

    I love this one!
    If the top part of the sponge is drying out, try flipping the cushion upside down. The bottom part of the cushion would still have generous amount left, then can flip another time before it really run out of the BB Cream inside. Reason being the the liquid flow downwards…I tried this way & one refil pack could last me 2 months with daily use. I did the same complaint as yours (it dried up) to the counter 3 weeks after use & this is the method they taught so that we could use up every drop of the BB cream inside. This at least make the purchase more worthwile…

    • Paris B
      July 2, 2012

      Ahhhh Jesz this is brilliant! I’ve included your comment and tip into the post so everyone can benefit from it :D Thanks so much (saves me from running out to get a refill now hehe… ;) )

    July 2, 2012

    This looks unique, and good coverage too! Looks good on u PB :)

    But packaging wise, I think calculative me would forgo this. I’d rather waste the product on my fingers rather than on the reservoir AND applicator sponge.Am sticking to maybelline bb white for now, heheh

    • Paris B
      July 6, 2012

      It is pretty good, Anis :) But I know what you mean about the packaging. Its certainly innovative but maybe not for everyone. I am also quite liking the Maybelline BB white :D Its surprisingly nice

  22. Jennifer
    July 2, 2012

    Wow, I love the excellent coverage and glow it gives you! Two thumbs up :) Lol, I was taken aback when you sing praises for 1) BB Cream 2) Sponge Applicator. This sounds like a smart product, the compact packaging but in liquid form with refills – trust the innovative Koreans eh. Only thing is, it dries up fast. For 30g, the price seems alright minus the dry up factor. But hey, it looks great on you, so why not? Now you got me wanting to drop by Laneige tomorrow hee hee :P Glad you finally found a BB Cream worth singing a cool tone ;)

    • Paris B
      July 6, 2012

      Haha I know right? Usually I’m all BB Cream? Meh. Sponge? Meh and this time I’m going ooh! Try it! Try it! haha… It is quite pricey overall so I don’t recommend this for occasional users, but more for those who use it daily or want something lightweight. I’m planning to take this to the beach or something. At least I know it won’t slide off everywhere :D

  23. milktea
    July 2, 2012

    Is the sponge a special kind of sponge? Could we maybe infuse our own cosmetic sponges (weird idea on the way!) with BB cream and apply it in the same way? ;)

    • Paris B
      July 6, 2012

      Actually I think its the formula that’s special :) Its more watery and not creamy so if we water down our own BB creams maybe it might work? hehe

    July 2, 2012

    The color looks really dark but it appears to be a perfect match for your skin and with good coverage too. The cushiony cool marketing really got be interested. I wonder if your skin feels any cooler after applying it.

      Well on immediate contact with the skin, there’s a cool feel but it dissipates quickly. Coverage and colour wise its really good but packaging wise it might end up being too costly in the long term.

    Oooh, this looks really interesting! It does look a bit orange in the skin swatch, but it looks fine on your face. I’ll have to ask my mum about it :D
