I guess the BB cream rave isn't quite over yet. While I was planning to get Jill Stuart's limited edition blusher from my favorite seller, she had quite a few new items such as this Coffret D'or BB cream.
Coffret D'or makes one of my favorite eyeshadow from the stash-Jewelicious Eyes and I have been eager to try their base product. Since I score it at a great deal this time, why not give it a try?
At 30g, it comes with SPF 33 PA++, which a decent SPF number in most Asian bases these days, and I believe they come in 3 shades:
01 Bright Tone
02 Natural Tone
03 Healthy Tone
I picked up the 02 color this time. I purchased mine at $180hkd and Adambeauty has them for $220hkd here.
Ingredients in Japanese... but I noticed this product does contain Parabens "パラベン" at one of the last ingredients:
More pictures of the bb cream tube:
The packaging of this tube is very simple and it's just a normal toothpaste like squeeze tube with a twisting cap closure:
Swatches. The consistency is rather creamy, but not as thick as Korean BB cream by Missha that I owned:
Spreading it apart, it's rather easy, but I noticed small frecks of shimmer in this BB cream
Fully blended out. Coverage is rather light, just like any BB cream, which makes it ideal for a light make up day.
Comparing this Japanese BB with another brand I own, the Hado Labo BB cream, which is at 45g and $130hkd at Adambeauty, Coffret D'or BB cream is a higher price per unit. However, I think I like the Hada Labo BB cream more not only because of it's cheaper price (beauty on a budget, yay!), but also I think Hada Labo is better at oil control in summer months. Given the same amount of time I wear these BB cream, the Coffret D'or one melts on me by midday while the Hado Labo one will last me till late afternoon before I get oily on my T-zone areas.
