First Reviews: L'egere BB & Kevin Beautymaker Concealer

UPDATE:  The L'egere dries out my skin and clogs my pores, and the Beautymaker concealer makes my old pimples re-appear! (What?!) I'm finding that any products with the words "BB" in it, is probably going to break me out.  Consequently, I'm not using either of these products now. :)

Helloooooo, Blogger World! On Friday, I completed my whopping 5 hour exam! Right after, I felt super-giddy because of all the excess adrenaline haha! Wee. I hope I did alright... the funniest thing is, I ran into an old friend who happens to work in the exam building!!! *WEIRD* Apparently, she sorts socks for an online Japanese sock company... o_O *SUPER WEIRD!!!!*... but the socks were cute. Anyway! On to the reviews.

L'egere White Multi BB Cream
First Impressions: This felt a little thicker on my skin than I had anticipated. The coverage is medium, with redness covered but darker blemishes not. It is buildable, but it will look cake-y if you put on too much. Almost immediately after applying, my skin looks brightened and fresh.

Application: Definitely need to hydrate the skin before applying. I take a little bit of product onto my foundation brush (there's no difference when applied with fingers, it's just easier for me with a brush), dab onto the skin and blend.

Overall: Very good! After applying, it looks almost exactly like my skin. So, I have to make sure my skin looks pretty good to start with haha. It lasts all day, and controls oil pretty well! After the stress of a 5-hour exam, I wasn't as oily as I thought I would be. Overall, this can't trump my favorite foundation, but it's very nice for a BB cream!

Kevin Beautymaker BB Mineral Concealing Cream
First Impressions: Very small! Haha! It's probably comparable to the amount of product in my other concealer; it just doesn't look like it because of the streamlined packaging. Thick texture, very pigmented, and you don't need alot. Makes my blemishes go bye-bye!

Application: My fingers are too meaty so I can't use it to apply concealer in a precise way. I drew some pictures to show you what I mean!! Yay~

You see?! ;P This is why I use my mini-concealer brush that came with my previous concealer palette! It is from Shiseido's Qiora line. I love it!

Overall: Great! The color doesn't work for me as an under-eye concealer, but it's great for all other stuff! And it lasts ALL DAY! Really glad I picked this up (thanks Fuz!). Now, I secretly wish for Kevin BM to come out with a concealer palette that includes a few different shades!

OK that's it for my first reviews!! Did you like it? XD I'm sure it wasn't very helpful, but I had fun doing it HO HO HO! Until next time lovely people... "to infinity and beyond!!"

    I'm sure you'll love Up! :)

    haha silky underwear is just one of LUSH's dusting powders, it works like a baby powder but with much nicer smell, you can use it to dust all over your body on a hot day, or just if you want to smell nice. It also helps to get rid of that greasy feeling you get after using a LUSH message bar, so it mattifies your skin. You could also use this as a dry shampoo for your hair, etc. What were you thinking!!! :p
