The 35g tube comes with a bit of highlighter cream when you flip the top of the jewel cap up, and you can use your pinkie to dab some on the bridge of your nose and the top of your lip. (Of course, when your entire face is shining like some sort of wonderful porcelain sculpture, you really don't need this, but it was a nice touch nonetheless.)
Pros- Spreading and blending this BB cream was incredibly easy. It came on pale as usual, but I think by this time I've gotten used to how ghostly white these creams come on. Tiny iridescent bits of shine are infused with every drop, so much so that I'm almost reminded of Twilight's vampires. This glow effect makes this cream perfect for photos, smoky clubbing nights, and sexy dinner dates. The coverage was medium, though my skin has been quite smooth lately so I didn't really mind. After removal, my skin felt so wonderfully soft and the skin whitener effect really did work. This goes on very light, so you don't feel like you're wearing makeup even though it looks quite the opposite.
Cons- This still isn't the right shade for me, however nice it ended up blending after the requisite 15 minutes. The oil control was better than SkinFood's, but still not good enough for me. After about 5 hours, my skin started to look quite pale and just a bit too shiny. Remember, I have oily/combination skin in a yellow/morena tone, so for ladies who've got lovely white skin on the dry side, this may be the one for you.
While I love how Skin79 blends and covers, I find that the shiny Vampire look just isn't practical for everyday use. I'd use this to highlight other BB creams and for special occasions, but it's a bit impossible to wear it to something as mundane as the office.
I got my cream from a Korean reseller based in the Philippines, and her price was quite good. Php960 isn't a bad deal at all (SkinFood's SO overpriced), and if I ever run out of this, I'd probably pick up another tube (though in a smaller size).
Readers from the Philippines can easily pick some up from the lovely Sun Kim on Ebay Philippines, while international readers may direct their purchases to Amazon.com (link on the left).
As for me, I'm hitting the cosmetics racks again! I'm not stopping til I find the perfect BB Cream for me, hehe. :)
