UPDATED-[REVIEW & SWATCH] Holika Holika Luminous Silk BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++ #01 Light Beige

Good morning readers!
Today I'm going to review another BB Cream.
【Holika Holika】luminous silk BB cream korean cosmetics
It is Holika Holika Luminous Silk BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++ #01 Light Beige. This BB cream is available in 2 shades which are :

cute box isn't it xD The box made of 3D stripes plastic with lace prints which is very cute ^_^ But because it is transparent, it's a bit hard to read the side texts (like ingredients etc :( )

The color has pink-y undertone. I actually have yellow undertone skin color but however, the color will adapt to my skin tone and doesn't look weird on me :p
It gets me a bit oily after 4 hours but it's normal since I live in tropical island ^^ So far I feel the oil control of this bb cream (without applying base first) is good.

It does brighten and makes my skin looks a bit fairer but will adapt to my skin tone after about 10 mins. Feels so light like wearing nothing on skin :p Not sticky too ^^
Pros :

  • Doesn't break me out
  • Available in 2 shades
  • Affordable price
  • Contains 50gr ><
  • The expiry date after opening is 18 months! :D
  • Very cute and creative packaging ^^
  • Has SPF 42 PA+++
  • No paraben and some other harmful ingredients :D
  • No strong or ugly smell
  • Good oil control (I would rate it 8/10)
  • Easy to blend
  • Feels light on skin, makes me forgot that I was using BB cream xD
  • Not cakey at all
  • Anti wrinkle : yes
Neutral :
  • Coverage is sheer to medium (well, since it's a bb cream not foundation. It covers my dark circle nicely but my acne scars still a bit visible even after layering it)
  • Whitening? Feel nothing about it
  • semi-dewy finish
Cons :
  • Contains fragrance
  • Starts to fade on the forehead areas and around mouth areas after 2 hours ++ (maybe need touch up or thicker layers, since I barely use powder too because I want to achieve dewy look heheh :p)

Repurchase? No. This is a very good BB Cream but I prefer to more dewy finish so I'll try Etude House Precious Mineral BB Bright Fit one ^^ Hope it is dewier like what people said :p If you don't mind having semi-matte finish, this is a great BB cream with many plus points^^

I mean if I take a selca with it or I use it until several hours it won't appear dewy T_T i want a dewy finish that will stay long and show up on the camera xD well hope it makes sense! because yesterday when I make a dance video I can see it looks dewy and being too white on me but in real life it does match my skin tone (but have a little pinkish color) even though my skin is yellow undertone and doesn't look that dewy T.T) I realize now that this bb cream blends easier than other bb creams I've tried.

Repurchase? Yes. This is the best bb cream I've tried so far :D EH Precious Mineral Bright Fit disappoints me since it is not dewy like many people said and the coverage is not better than Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion like my friend said :s Well I know everyone's opinions are different but that's what I feel ._.

FOTD with the BB Cream : 
*please don't mind my clumsy face T________T just wanna show the bb cream beside the window sunlight (?) :D* #no edit so you can see :D
My dark circle still visible a bit..
That's all for this BB Cream :D
See you on my next post^^
