Hello Beauties! How was your week end? I hope you all enjoyed it as much I did. Today, I would like to share my thoughts and experience upon using these products that were given to us by Korea Cosmetics in sponsorship with Luview Company. 

I remember when KC asked us (supporters), of what we would want to do a review on, I was torn between the whitening capsule bb cream (which was geared for the oily type skin and has whitening properties~ and I was like whoah, this is great I wanna have this asap!)  and on the other hand, the crystal cover bb cream (which promises to conceal scars, redness, pimple marks, varicose veins, anti wrinkling,whitening and SPF included! now that’s a lot, eh?) I noticed that between the two, the crystal cover bb cream has more features so I opted for it and luckily, I got it!

Hope you find this review helpful! Enjoy reading everyone 😀

* Packaging

The packaging is to die for—- It comes in a with a wine red color combined with a softer baby pink hue. Very elegant and classy so to speak. 

> Crystal cover bb cream – the container comes in a cylindrical/ cylinder form (correct me if I am mistaken dunno, how to describe the shape!) but what I like about it is that it comes with a pump which is hygienic and for us consumers to be able to control the amount of cream we are dispensing.

> Crystal mineral pact – the container is really nice! I love the mixture of red and gold—- very posh and classy! What I do like about it is that it has a separate compartment for the puff. You see dear readers, when we apply any pressed powder or pact unto our skin, the cushion we are using, picks up the oil and dirt from our face and so if it comes into contact with the product pr pact itself wihtout any divider or so, there is a higher tendency for our skin to be irritated or prone to acne.

* Product performance

Note:This is a joint effort since I asked help from my sister Wynonah if she could be my model. She has an acne prone skin and I want to test if the Crystal bb cream lived up to its promise of covering acne scars and redness since she has both problems with her skin. As for me, I am having troubles with my varicose veins on my cheek area and some sun spots as well. Here are the some of the before and after pics. The following pics are not EDITED as well

Wynonah’s bare face: As you can see acne marks are everywhere and redness is noticeable.

After applying the LuView Crystal cover bb cream (WITH FLASH): The dark spots and redness are barely noticeable. One problem though, the bb cream was too light fir her skin tone as she is a tad darker than me T.T Nevertheless, it did a good job in covering her acne marks and redness! thumbs up for that! 😀

TIP: for darker skin tone, just mix this bb cream with any darker liquid foundation that you have on your vanity kit and youre good to go without looking like a ghost! 🙂

(WITHOUT FLASH) The marks are still there but barely noticeable and redness was covered!

My bare face: 

Problem area: red scar on my left brow bone and varicose veins on my cheeks!

After LuView crystal cover bb cream application: dark spots were moderately covered and redness was reduced!

LuView crystal cover bb cream provides a sheer to moderate coverage depending on the amount of product you use on your face. It is easily blended when one uses a foundation brush ( as for me I use my ELF foundation brush) or you can use your hand as well. It feels smooth upon application and the scent is not irritating at all. With regards to the color, its a little too light for my skin so at times, I incorporate my darker liquid foundation to the bb cream to even it out. Luckily, it shows up pretty decent enough in pictures 🙂 I usually set it with my LuView mineral pact to create a matte finish and for sun protection whenever I am planning to head out to run errands or something.

Here is a pic with the mineral pact on top of the Crystal cover bb cream:

I did notice a glow and dewy finish on my skin afterwards but not to the point that it is showing off as greasy looking! I super love the mineral pact! I have been using the bb cream and mineral pact for several days now, and I am happy that I did not experience any breakouts or any allergic reaction to the products that were sent over for me to review on and I like that!

* Summary

Overall, I could say that the products were able to meet my expectations. The crystal cover bb cream was able to hide my sister’s acne scars and redness, my darkspots and varicose veins on the cheeks while the mineral pact hold true to it its promise of controlling sebum formation! I need not re apply the powder after 2-3 hours since my face was still matte and has that youthful glow. I highly recommend these products! I give it 4.8/5  rating!
