TONYMOLY Luminous Live Aura CC Cream review
I loooong awaited to share my thoughts on this CC cream. as i have mentioned it in my *previous post* , it's my holy grail foundation ever since i discovered it, and i cant wait to tell you what wonders it can do to your skin <3
First of all, here's what it promises:
7 in 1 product!
sun screen+ whitening +wrinkle care + radiance + moisture +base makeup + primer! What's more, it has a pinkish undertone therefore it corrects uneven skin.And the most important thing is that it's free of harmful ingredients like paraben, benzophenone, talc, mineral oil ect. That's exactly the reason why it does not break me out.
This is a CC (Color Change) Cream which has SPF30 PA++
the quantity is 50ml, which is a good amount of product (specially if you use just a little bit of it every time, like me.) It comes in a hard tube with a pump. i have to tell you that it's really sturdy as i dropped it many times, but nothing happened with it except for the cup of it. unfortunately it broke :') but it's not important that much, right?
the packaging is really simple, a white tube with a black top, and the writing is really classy! Golden and there are stars, i really like it. AAAAND as i ordered it during winter, i got this limited edition box with it :D it says "happy holiday" and has a snowman and stars and cute things on it :3
the texture is quite liquidy. it's not as thick as a BB cream as it has less coverage. first, it's white, but as you blend it, it turns into a color of a BB cream. it's looks as if you'd mixed a BB cream with a makeup starter or a base.
as i said, it has less coverage than a BB cream, but still it works pretty well on my skin. when i do have some break outs, it covers well, sometimes i might put a little bit of a bb cream on my blemishes.
and also, on some days when i know i have to wear makeup for a very long time, i mix my missha m perfect cover bb cream with this cc cream, and it makes my skin look flawless.
i'd say that it's a long lasting product, however if you really want to wear it all day long or something, i suggest you do as i do, mix it with a little bit of BB cream, it will definitely last longer and cover better.
As for the price, it was TOTALLY worth it. on sale. to tell you the truth i would think hard on buying it full priced. i've never bought any facial products for more than $15....:D and since i know that it might be on sale sometime, i will wait. although, i think i might be kinda running out of it(i've had it since january i guess) so as soon as i see it on sale, i will definitely repurchase it.
me wearing it:
So, all in all:
-doesnt break me out (!!)
-good amount of product
-does its job
-free of harmful ingredients
thank you for reading. :)
