Sample Wednesday: Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream

Happy Wednesday, Lovelies!

I have a bunch of base makeup samples and since I love the Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream, I decided it was time to try the BB Cream ;).

And I would just like to add that Tony Moly must reaaaally be into the long names!

Claims:

  • Nano-sized pearl for soft radiance
  • Silky finish

Short and sweet! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Caffeine
  • Adenosine
  • Syn-ake
  • Olive oil
  • Argan oil

With the exception of olive oil and caffeine, I really love the ingredients in this product!

Adenosine, like Arbutin, is supposed to be very good for brightening your skin and syn-ake for anti-aging.

Scent:

Oh my goodness, this has such a strong smell!!!

I didn’t notice it until I started applying the bb cream to my face, but it smells like some kind of floral perfume. Personally, it is way~~~ to strong for me and took too long to fade.

But, if you like scented products this will make you feel like a princess! (◕‿-)

Coverage:

This is definitely a more medium-full coverage product!

I was really surprised at how thick it was. It even covered my poor freckles!

I actually like my freckles though (╯_╰).

I’m not sure why I look so awkward in this picture. I’m chalking it up to being tired this morning ;).

And the side with the bb cream. You can definitely see that all the redness is gone along with my ikkle freckles.

The coverage is great, right?

And the finish is really pretty. I would say it’s somewhere between matte and dewy. If you aren’t really into the dewy finishes, but like a fresh look this would be good for you.

When I was applying it inside, it looked a little light for my NC 25 skin, but it appeared to oxidize pretty nicely by the time I took the last pictures.

And then I stepped outside…..

Oh my goodness, it’s about a half to full shade too light for my skin! It wasn’t so noticeable inside, but I just looked slightly sickly in the sunlight.

I wish this came in more than one shade!

Overall:

4-5

 

This made me sad! If it matched my skin better and didn’t have such a strong smell, I would absolutely LOVE this bb cream!

Maybe I will try it again in the Winter and see if it matches better then ^_^.

If you want to try it for yourself, you can get it here at Jolse for a really good price!
