Beauy Review: BLK Cosmetics BB + CC Cream Stick in Light Beige

Hello there! This will be my first time using a BB/CC stick and I am looking forward to it.

I got triggered and bought this the other day. I waited for the mall to open so that I can swatch these and purchase one for myself. I have high hopes for this product because I am looking for something that I can wear on a daily basis that is light and won't cake up or oxidize on me. Let's see if the BLK bb + cc cream is the answer to all my make-up prayers.

This is available in three shades: Ivory Beige, Light Beige, Natural Beige

Price: 449 ($8.63)

Available at: SM Stores Beauty Counters, Watsons, BLK Cosmetics Website, Beauy MNL, Shopee.PH

What it claims: Score that coveted Korean glow with this hybrid skin perfector that gives you the benefits of both a BB and a CC cream in an easy-to-use stick. Infused with shea butter, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E, the rich, buildable formula expertly smoothens skin and conceals blemishes, while the unique priming core ensures a flawless application. Use the brush end to buff and blend for an all-day luminous look.

I have oily skin and I am always having issues with using foundation. I was able to try both bb and cc creams and they worked fine with my abnormal skin. I also have acidic skin that whenever I use foundations, it oxidizes and looks grayish on me which is a bummer. Finding the right product will help me out with covering my impurities and make my face look even and smooth.

It comes in a retractable container with the product on the other end and a buffing brush on the other. The tube is made of a tough plastic material. The brush on the other end of the tube is. The product itself is your typical cream in a stick and since it is a combo stick, the bb cream and cc cream are separated just like the layers of the Earth. (I am so bad at describing, I hope the photos will give it justice)

It is a mix between creamy and mousse-like texture. I love how smoothly it glides on my face and it can be blended easily. I used a beauty blender to buff it on my skin and it worked well. I haven't tried using a brush but I might do it some time soon.

I used it as my base when I went to work one day and my shift is for 9 hours. I applied makeup at around 8:40 in the evening and traveled to work at 9pm.  I actually used the Quick FX primer before putting this on, locked it in with the BLK All-Day Matte Powder Foundation and finished everything off with the L'oreal Inffalible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray. I got exposed to the usual Metro Manila pollution which is a good way to test out this baby.

I was able to visit one of BLK's beauty counters at the mall (SM Mall of Asia) and swatched each shade so that I can choose the correct one for my skin. I love how creamy the product and they swatched perfectly. I took photos of these in two different lighting conditions to know if there will be a difference.

2:08 AM and this is the first time that I blotted since I put on makeup

12:30 PM and this is after I have blotted my face

I will be checking in every now and then to check if I need to blot and to see if the product is still on my face. These will be in random hours of the day during my Thursday shift. I also apologize for the quality of the photos because I was using my phone, an iPhone 6s, to take the photos. The first photo was when I have arrived a

Light Beige suits my skin tone perfectly and it did not oxidize on me. I chose the correct shade and am pretty sure that this will be my go-to base whenever I feel like being all dolled up. I love that it is not heavy on the skin and it looks like I didn't have anything on. Although I had to blot every now and then, it stayed intact despite the blotting and rubbing that I did. Setting it with powder and finishing spray helped it stay longer as well.
Will I repurchase? I am definitely repurchasing this product and I might hoard this too. I just love the coverage and the effect that it gives my skin. It gives me a flawless, skin-like finish.

Have you tried BLK Cosmetics? If yes, how was it and what products have you tried? If no, would you consider trying it out?
