I wasn’t at all enticed by caviar until after watching Jen’s video, when I decided that I should try some on my face too. Great idea?
As usual, I went to get samples from TheSampleStore.sg first …
If you’re wondering, I’ve previously tried and reviewed 2 other BRTC BB creams HERE. My experience with BRTC hasn’t been exactly pleasant so I wasn’t really expecting much from this. All I wished for was that it won’t cause my face to itch. Now after trying it, I can say that I’m well-pleased… On to the review!
I’ll begin with a swatch of it against my fav ElishaCoy Gold Mineral BB.
About an hour later…
What I like about it?
Doesn’t irritate my skin.
Neither does it cause any breakouts for me, although I’ve read about bloggers breaking out with this BB cream.
Has moisturising properties which is good for my dehydrated skin. I love the dewy finish that it gives!
Medium coverage. It was able to cover my dark circles pretty well.
Although it might seem darker, it was actually a good match for my skin tone. It also imparts this healthy glow on my face.
The texture was slightly thicker than the usual BB creams, but it was easier to spread than the other 2 BRTC BB creams.
As it can be seen by comparing the 2 photos above, this BB cream doesn’t really oxidize on me to give weird greyish or ashy tones.
Not much oil-control. Hence, those with oily skin might want to stay away from this.
Might not suit those with fair skin.
Rating: I’ll give this a 4 out of 5, which puts it on par with ElishaCoy’s Premium Gold BB! Finally found another BB cream which is suitable for me 🙂
YES, definitely. Already noted it down with lotsa asterisk on my pending Gmarket shopping list. *grins*
BRTC has actually upgraded this to a SPF 50 BB cream so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll be as good, if not, better than the SPF 20.

P.S. I just realised that this is given a rating of 4.6 out of 5 on MakeUpAlley!
