Skin79 and Missha BB Cream Review + Shopping and Food

Before I get to my review and such, I'd like to introduce my BF's blog -->

I actually persuaded him to blog with me because [its a funny story actually] he complained that the only time I go on the internet is when I blog. He is always online checking his emails for business and newsites/stock market shit but for me, the internet is for either homework or blogging. I go online on my phone way more than on the computer. Most of the time I'm out anyways!

So long story short, he made a blog so he could better connect with me (d'awwwwwww). CHECK OUT/FOLLOW HIS BLOG!! he will probably have more outfit photos, embarrassing photos of me, and even more food stuffs HAHAHA.

Anyways, Shirley gave me this BB cream recently! She bought it and it was way too light for her so she decided to give it to me since I gave her a Missha BB cream in NO.23 (the red one). 

Skin79's The Oriental Gold BB Cream


Many other bloggers actually raved about it on and on so I wanted to see what all the commotion was about. 


It comes with this lip/blush pop off that I really dont give two shits about. I mean, its nice for on the go and vacations but I honestly don't think I would pick this over my blush/lip color.


Photo with it on. 

My thoughts on this BB cream is that its really pasty. It has good coverage and goes on really thick so you only need one layer. As for application, it does not go on smooth at all. I have used this on my bad skin days and it was so bad. You could see it peeling off my face (not moisturizing!) If you deep exfoliate your skin, I think it should be fine. 

I know with the consistency, this BB cream will stay on for a long time. I've used many foundations and BB creams and I think this will be the one with the best staying power since its so pasty.

 Its pretty dew-y! Look at how dewy I look!
Note: This photo was taken in a dark place and does not show how light the color is IRL.

Color wise, this is actually WAYYY too light. I know some girls LOVE light skin but its really a stretch when your neck is a different color than your face. Trust me, I'm pretty damn pale even when I do tan. There isn't any greyish tint to it so if you are super albino light, this is the perfect shade. It gives a yellowish undertone which I adore!

Onto packaging. Whoever designed this tube should get fired immediately. The bottle is really big with a pump but no nozzle. So basically, you press the whole top portion down and the BB cream comes from the middle making the whole top of your BBcream disgusting and unsanitary if you don't clean it every single time. What a disappointment!

Score: 3/5 I can stay out of the sun for a while and this will be my perfect shade but I think the packaging really kills it. This is advertised for dry/combination skin but to be honest, I feel as though its made more so for oily skin. I assume so if you are extremely pale with combination to oily skin, this is the one for you!

 Next BB cream: Missha Watery BB Cream

I bought this one off of http://i-beautyshop.net/
They also have other cosmetics/clothing/circle lenses if you guys want to check it out!


I bought the shiny version of this which was supposedly "lighter" and after a while, I decided to get a darker version for in case I go crazy and want to be REALLY dark. I've read a bunch of reviews on it and almost all the reviewers have said this was SO DARK... be prepared to be disappointed because...

its not dark at all. When I swatched it on my hand, it appeared pretty dark but when I applied it onto my face it looked "normal" shade. I know nowadays most girls want the extreme, but for me I love this BB cream because it didn't lighten or darken my complexion. It actually ENHANCED my skin.


Here is a photo of me with it on. 

This is actually one of the best BB cream's I've used HANDS DOWN!  I can not rave enough about this. The shiny version I got was a bit lighter [probably two shades] and it went on pretty sticky. For this one, it GLIDES on. For the record, I have extremely dry skin so for something to glide on over my dry pores is something I wanna keep. There is a bit of shimmer to it but nothing to make you resemble a disco ball.

Score: 5/5 I seriously think this is the BEST FUCKING CREAM I've used. For the girls who don't want to be extremely pale, use this one. I can't say its for tan skin because its still relatively light IMO.

Outfit timeeee!!
Here is what I wore these past two days! 
 

 Me+Aaron went to get him a haircut yesterday and snapped this quick photo of my casual outfit. I love these boots because they open on the side and have these kickass straps/zipper. My shirt is a knit sweater that says GIVE ME LOVE ... no seriously I need it ): LOLOL jay kay. 


Me today getting a hotlink downtown after a long day at the Musem of Modern Art. I'm wearing a newspaper print tank!

After going to the MOMA, we stopped by H&M Wetseal & F21. My boyfriend offered to take me shopping [OMG DREAM COME TRUE] ... but unfortunately I didn't like anything except for these two shirts.


I got this one from H&M for 15 dollars. I'm really into abstract prints now! I've never been a fan of floral but abstract or abstract floral prints are really catching my eye. I LOVE the cut of this shirt. Its super short in the front and long in the back. Its also a racerback! This shirt isn't really my style but I just wanted to try some more playful colors/prints for spring/summer (HAHA my idea of playful is yellow and black...)


I've never been a BIG fan of Wetseal because it looks like the ugly clubgirl cousin of F21 but I decided to give it a shot since the last time I went I saw these acceptable leather jackets.  When I walked in I saw this cutest tank with lipstick kiss on it! I love anything with lip marks so I had to get it... 

Plus we have a dress code for the purikura store during Cherry Blossom which is THIS SHADE OF LIGHT PINK and I really don't have that much pink clothing. This shirt was 17 dollars NOT BAD... but not a steal either...

NOW EPIC FOOD TIME

Aaron treated me out to Yu-Zen yesterday. Its really traditional Japanese food. Our other sushi places are usually fusion or catered towards Americans. It doesn't get more traditional than this!


 We had tenpura udon. TASTY. I don''t even like tenpura but this place is the shit. Nice and crispy without being overbearing.


then we had... A CRAZY ASSORTMENT OF NIGIRI+ROLLS 

Aaron doesn't eat salmon so thats why theres only two pieces. We had sake, hamachi, maguro, and spicy tuna rolls.


This place is so authentic that they had REAL WASABI! OMG! This is what real wasabi looks like [though I can taste they mixed the real wasabi with a bit of the squeeze tube version]! See the little dots?

This is the only place I can think of off the top of my head that actually has real wasabi. BTW, for those that don't know, sushi restaurants in America usually use package wasabi. Real wasabi is a root and the taste of it dissipates in 30 minutes after you grind it. Plus its extremely expensive.


For dinner we made this cucumber salad. It was so yummy but made my breath smell like garlic for the whole night!



Aaron with some Beard Papa creampuffs today! We actually had a hotlink + coldstones ice cream before this HAHA!


My cute little creampuff.


We went out to dinner but I didn't want to bore you guys with SO MUCH FOOD PRONS so here is a photo of our snack haul from Walgreens.

I'm so excited to go to work tomorrow! I've been extremely busy and I've actually read a bunch of blogs but didn't have the time to comment on them ; o ;!!! I'll be a lot less busy once midterms and Cherry Blossom Festival days are over

Until Next Time,
Mint

  1. Haha, I think you got me kinda sold on that Missha BB cream...which is amazing considering I didn't want to try Missha anymore after the Perfect Cover. That shit was awful.

  2. Well now I'm glad I didn't try the Oriental BB Cream after all! I'm happy with my Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream, though somedays I opt for foundation for better coverage >< Although now I want to try the Missha BB cream! It looks amazing on you... or you look amazing with it on, which ever *__*

    You should wear more yellow, you'd make a hot bumble bee. :D jk!! <3 I really do like that top on you though, very cute~!

    Okay, I went from Aaron's blog, to Val's blog, then yours, and the EPIC FOOD bit finally killed it for me. Not hungry anymore! XD My boyfriend's been talking about making his own EF spoof with cake and butter... I may never crave Paris Baguette ever again if he goes through with it!

    ....Who am I kidding, I'm still fucking hungry~ all those chips.... I think I have to stop by the store and pick up some hot cheetoh's and cream cheese >:D if you like both, try them together, it'll blow your mindhole!!

  7. I <3 to munch on the Dorito's Cheeseburger! It taste exactly like a fast food cheeseburger I swear, dill pickle an all. Not that either are very good for you, haha. I used to eat Sunchips with slices of sharp cheese too, like crackers. Good stuff.

  12. Oh I don't know anything about BB creams, but I think its good if they enhance your skin rather than try to lighten or darken it too much.

    I love the tank tops you got, they are both sooo awesome!

    The food...I'm just gonna pretend I can't see it haha!

  13. @Charlene MISSHAS PERFECT COVER IS PRETTY BAD. its so thick and it has this greyish tint. this one is actually one of the best from missha that I've tried but again, its gonna be a bit darker than what people expect because this BB cream is made so your face doesn't resemble a ghost! I've never had a Dorito's Cheeseburger but I need to try it!!!

    @Katie The oriental BB cream is kind of whatever. It didn't surprise me at all. I'm trying to work more colors into my wardrobe because I'm tired of everything! OMG HOT CHEETOS N CREAM CHEESE IS THE SHIT. Its s omany calories though because... think about how much hot cheetoes are alone

    @Rii OHHH swatch is when you put the product on your skin to show how it looks!

    @Aawon FLAMING HOT LAYZ FTW

    @Emi Oh yeah I don't kid about what I like and what I don't like... I mean if the product is shit, its shit. Did your jacket peel because you put it in the wash? I never wash my leather jackets [not even dry clean!] because one of them is faux and will melt.... LOL I LIKE HOW YOU KNOW I WRITE ABOUT FOODZ

    @Mie I can't look at my blog sometimes because I get hungers too....

    @Sara Mari I just use BB cream because foundations make me break out after extended use! But in all honesty the best cover up I've ever used was Makeup Forever's HD foundation. I bought it for my boyfriend and its AMAZING. YES! JUST LOOK OVER THE FOOD... ): ): ): I don't want you to break your diet!

  14. I was actually just gonna order the skin79 oriental a couple days ago... LOL! I've tried a lotttt of bb creams and for my skin I think an Etude House one I picked up in Korea was the best for me.. I think I'm going to order Oriental anyways though. XD

  16. I know. I split an entire bag with my boyfriend and my sister today... but I ate majority of the bag. I'm gonna be such a fat-ass tomorrow ;___;

    I think they need to redirect their target customers on the Oriental BB cream. I know Ekimura uses it and loves it, and she has oily-prone skin. There you go.

    I'm glad you're adding more colors :) Hell, it's spring, so why not? :)
