Luview: Haul and Review

Hi everyone. I've read such good things about the Korean Brand Luview, that I decided I must try them out for myself. I bought some products from their online shop which ships internationally.



I bought the following products:

Crystal Mineral Pact

Real Skin Primer BB Cream

Whitening Capsule BB Cream

Glossy Kiss

I normally wouldn't buy so many products from a brand I've never tried before, but the prices were so reasonable I couldn't resist.

I'll review each product in separate posts, and today I'll review the Whitening Capsule BB Cream.


I do love the packaging of Luview products. They were far more superior than what I would have expected for the price. The Whitening BB Cream is housed in a sleek bottle with push top nozzle.


This cream is said to have whitening and moisturising effects. It has a medium to thick consistency which is easily applied and blended. Initially white, the cream blends to a pale beige (which matches my skintone exactly) with micro shimmer.


The cream half-blended:


The cream fully blended:


The cream on my skin:


I'm quite impressed with the coverage of this BB cream. It has a medium coverage which looks light and natural on the skin. The coverage is good enough to even out my skintone and covers any redness on my skin. I do not think the cream alone would be enough to cover any potential blemishes.

I love the finish of this BB cream. It doesn't cake and give that 'obvious makeup' look. It just covers small imperfections and gives a flawless, radiant finish.

I found this cream to be long lasting, and best of all - it does not irritate my sensitive skin.


Pros:

Great Packaging

A Little of the product goes a long way

Good Coverage with a flawless finish

Does not irritate my skin

Contains ethereal looking micro shimmer

(and I normally detest shimmer)



Cons:

Not to keen on the strong scent

Would like it to contain SPF

  7. I've read such great reviews on the Korean BB creams, but when I tried out some of these brands I felt they are better suited for lighter skin tones as most brands don't carry wide shade selection. But if you can find the right shade, a BB cream can be an HG product indeed. Thanks for sharing this with us

  8. A little bit of shimmer (like this) is good. A lot is scary and overwhelming. I think this looks beautiful on you.

  15. Can't wait for reviews on the other products! Great review for this one as well! =) Btw, I agree I wished it has SPF. But most of my BB cream that I order before always had SPF, so I don't understand why they don't have it.
