Smashbox “Camera Ready BB Water” & Tony Moly “Luminous Aura” *Review and Demo*

Hello peeps!!!

Yes, I know… I legit didn’t post at all last month! But a lot of stuff occured T.T

Lost my cellphone, getting crazy hours at work, Xiumin from EXO still isn’t my boyfriend… sigh 😦

But now it’s all good in the hood, and I have returned!!!

Annndd today I bring you a review of not 1 BUT 2 products!!


Smashbox “Camera Ready BB Water”

This products claims to prime, perfect and protect (they should just called it a pp water xD jk)

This product is supposed to give you a demi-matte look and it’s formulated to last a long time!

It’s alcohol free (means no shine and no drying) and it also comes in tons of shades. I am really glad the cosmetic industry is trying really hard to create shades for almost everyone!

Let’s try it out

I applied this product with a beauty blender. I feel like it gives you the best finish!

This stuff is super watery (hence the name xD)

Then I added some of the Luminous Aura

You can use your own ratio but I did 2:1 with this. The Luminous Aura will work with just a small amount

Super dewy and healthy looking skin.

But if you ain’t about that “all-over” dewiness and want to mattify some areas of your face I would recommend to use a brightening powder.

The Sephora Collection “Bright Set” powder in banana should do the work!

I put some powder on my T-Zone so it didn’t get too oily!

But I was completely happy with then end result.

Now let me give you a quick rundown of the Luminous Aura:

Sephora Website: Tony Moly’s multitasking Luminous Goddess Aura Beam creates a luminious glow with its real pearl powder. Enriched with collagen and natural oils that are known for their antiaging and hydrating benefits, it can be used alone or mixed with your foundation. Perfect for every skintone, this powder nourishes skin with argan, almond, and jojoba natural oils and extracts.

I haven’t seen any of the “anti-aging” results but it definitely hydrates. It works really well and you can also use it as a highlighter.


CONCLUSION

  • Great products. I would recommend the BB water for people that do not have much to cover. I would say it has a light to sheer coverage, but you can use it with your favorite concealer or foundation
  • If you ain’t about that extra dewy life, then the Luminous Aura is not for you. This stuff will give you “I-just-came-out-of-a-korean-drama-shooting” dewiness. But if you love it, then you should go to Sephora now and buy it!
  • Neither of these products broke me out! I was really happy about that.
  • I give these products a 5/5

NOW LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE EVER TRIED THESE PRODUCTS! LET ME KNOW YOUR  THOUGHTS!

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见, 안녕

Well, since I have been recommending some songs in my last posts, I think I will make this a part of my posts from now on!

The song I recommend this time is OneOkRock “Deeper Deeper”

I really like the live version, but this song rocks in general!

OneOkRock is a Japanese rock band. They sing most of their songs in English, but they also throw some Japanese in there.

Check them out!
