Review: LUVIEW Whitening Capsule BB cream & Crystal Mineral Pact

Hello everyone, how've you been? happy and fine I hope.
So I'm going to post my overdue review, as promised, Luview whitening capsule BB cream and Luview crystal mineral pact. I'd rather just put them all up at once, cuz this babies are inseparable.
If you've been following my blog for awhile, you might know that I was chosen as a supporter for Korea Cosmetic (I'm happily ecstatic!). I'm not getting paid, they sent me the products, along with a lot of freebies to be reviewed.
So deeply thanks to Korea Cosmetic ft. Luview for providing the product

ok, let's move on!

Formula  Cream

safety lock concept!
My comment:
Packaging: PhotobucketI'd like to start with the packaging first, typical of hygienic pump type casing which is very very convenient, I like the safety lock concept, just twist and pump! But, however, I accidentally, or should I say that I'm just being a lil bit unlucky cuz there's no 'straw' to suck up the product inside the casing. Meeeh, I tried to pump it again and again and nothing get out. But oh well, not a big deal, I opened the cap and take the product with my fingerv( ̄Д ̄)v

Color/texture:Photobucket I was froggin' shocked when I laid my eyes on the cream, it's WHITE! this is definitely a new to my eye. However, once the product settles on my skin, it blends in naturally with my natural skin tone. Allow it to oxidised and this brought about a VERY natural, silky and radiant cast to my face. Obviously love the 'MAGIC' BB cream concept! as for the texture itself, it's a bit watery in consistency, the less thick, the less cakey! yay for that! It has a fine pearly-shimmer too.
omg, I'm just love love LOOOVE the product mainly because the color and texture! I've tried many korean BB cream before but nothing can be good enough to be compared with this! (I'm being HONEST here!)♡♡♡

Coverage:Photobucket Naah, as for the coverage, don't expect much. It gives you a sheer coverage, I assume this is due to its watery consistency.

Oil control:Photobucket There's still a slight shine on my face and I need to reblot it every 3-4 hours. Contains Aloe extract and the famous hyaluronic acid for moisturizing properties.

Scent: PhotobucketOmaww so lovely! I can't stop smelling its scent on my hands after each application. It has a soft musky fragrance. You guys already knew that I hate fragrance in BBC, but this one is an exception! really raeally love the scent!

LOVE POINTS: Contain lots of natural ingredients, Watery consistency, non-cakey, a little goes a long way, MAGIC BB cream concept! Gives a silky cast on my face, easy to blend, natural tone, non-comedogenic, TALK FREE, mild musky scent, whitening properties~
(I'm sure that there's a LOT of unjottable things that I like about the product! (*^▽^*)

Not so loves: a bit shimmery finish. and...'strawless'(unlucky me), and it comes in a small size (30ml)

Okay, let's move on to the next review! gogogo...

3. Optimizes skin's varying tones to create a more even appearance.
Buildable coverage lasts for hours, yet feels like nothing at all. Controls shine. In a ready-to-go, ready-to-perfect compact.

My comment:
I got mine in shade 1, the lighter one. I use it to set the BB cream. Prefferably on nose and  forehead area. I'm not fond of compact powder since I find that they could cause breakouts, But however, I still need it to set my BB cream(> o <) Though, sometimes I'm just being lazy to set the BB cream. fwehehe...('◇')ゞ
and just like many other pacts, it blends naturally on skin and dissapear. So swatch up there↑↑↑ I applied it heavily. So shall we go with the verdict?

Packaging:Photobucket as you've already knew, I LOVE the classy and lavish packaging already! It has a separate space for the puff, hygienic.

Texture/color: Photobucket  As we all know, pressed powder tends to be more cakey. So I just puff it a little here and there on my face just as enough to cover the excess shine on my face.and Just like the MAGIC concept on BB cream, give it some time and let it oxidize and it will surely blend in with natural skin tone.

Coverage:Photobucket  coverage is good. works well with whitening capsule BB cream. If you swipe it over the concealer, it will gives a perfect coverage :)

Oil Control:Photobucket decent, the fine particles on it (pearls) gives off some sort of glow and dewy cast to my face. I LOVE it. My face was radiantly glowing with this. This mineral pact sets my BB cream for a good 4 hours untill I need to blot my face with oil film.

Scent:Photobucket Mildly scented, I can barely smell anything though. No feint cosmetic scent.

LOVE POINTS: Mineral pact, SPF 25 PA++, decent oil control, no feint scent, lavish packaging, good coverage.

NOT SO LOVE: tends to be more cakey.

Well. That would be all for the massive review >.<~ Here 's my FOTD with the product on:

  1. The BB cream sounds like a great product.

    Most of the time I am on the fence about "magic" products that change shades, but this one seems to change to a natural shade and doesn't look cakey~ Impressive review xo

  2. wow white?! i'd freak out too haha i love the packaging though!!! that'd prob be enough to make me buy it >.<

  3. The BB cream seems so nice! If it's natural, it's good! :) The press powder seems interesting also. Thanks for post!

  4. It's a very soft looking powder, isn't it? It makes your face looks soft-focus-y.. ^^

  5. First time I have heard of this brand, the BB cream looks promising :D

  6. ahh your skin looks very flawless there but i think you already have good skin hehe. good to hear that everything worked out!

    You look very cute in the last photo. You've got amazing skin! Major envy :)

  17. in response to your question. yes, i suppose you could use cocoa powder instead of the peanut butter, but i suggest you add a little bit of sugar, and that you freeze the bananas before blending. the beauty about milkshakes is that you can do absolutely anything! <33
