MY EXPERIENCE:
I would say that this BB cream is  a little tricky to use . It gives me different finishes depends on how I use and mix with different primers. I honestly didn't like it at first cause I find it too drying for my  dry combination skin. It leaves dry patches especially around my cheeks area and settles into lines. That was the time when I use it alone with a thin  layer of moisturizer. It was not impressing and thought I might threw it away, give it to someone else or might kept it in my drawer forever. However, I didn't give up hence gave it a second time using it with my Loreal Paris base Magique Primer, it was convincing then that it wasn't junk at all. This bb cream has a thick pink undertone which  I thought might be too light  for me.Surprisingly,  it blends pretty fair and nicely with my NC25-30 skintone. One technique that I've learnt from using it is by mixing it either with a tad moisturizer or a foundation, depending on how much coverage you would like to achieve. If I want to have a dewy look finish, I mix it up with my Benefit Girl Meet Pearls Highlighter,  or with my MAC Strobe cream .This is my favorite finish, my face looks bright, glowy and flawless with a dust of loose powder on top. It didn't cause to breakout as  well which is a bonus:) I have to say that I still need to blot excess oil after a few hrs using this regardless of what kind of procedures I used. It's oil control power doesn't last long. The color shades aren't universal too. In my overall opinion, this bb cream isn't bad at all. I don't have any ideas how it performs to other skintypes. But for dry skin combination like me, I suggest you to play around with this cream as it was really tricky to use and can be too drying if worn alone.

thanks dear, but my skin is way too far from being flawless! Thanks to power of bb creams:)haha..kissses *

Fabulous Aimee said...

let me know what your thoughts about it when u have tried it:) Make sure to prep your skin well with a good moisturizer cause it's really drying when used alone to a dry combo skin  type.

The bb cream looks really good on you Aimee! It makes your skin look so luminous :D I never knew Clinique came out with a bb cream. It's good to see non-Asian cosmetic companies branch out into the bb cream market :)

Hi Rinny :) Thanks! Yes this bb cream actually first came out to duty frees then sold afterwards at the counters ;) It's a good bb cream but needs to mix well with a good moisturizer cause it's a bit drying for dry skin like me. I love the finish of it with a mixture of MAC strobe cream;) Makes your face luminous and glowing;) Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless device via Vodafone-Celcom Mobile.
