I've heard so many good things from Korean brand Skin79, I decided to purchase this set from Ebay, which included the pink BB cream and the sun pact. If you do buy Skin79 be sure to buy them from a trusted seller as there are a lot of fakes going around.

Now I've heard that the pink and gold BB creams are actually pale shades, which I thought was good for me as Skin79 only do one standard shade in their BB creams. The colour is a sort of light greyish beige, but this is actually slightly too dark for me, but of course it isn't too highly dramatic as I can sort this out with a white face powder on top. Also it seems to blend well into the skin. It actually does look quite pale in my swatches. I will use this up but I wouldn't buy this again as it isn't the correct shade for my pale skin tone. Missha Perfect Cover BB cream in 13 is exactly my skin tone.

The texture is quite thick but blends easily and extremely well. It has a medium coverage and has a slight baby powder smell, which I think is quite nice. The wear is fantastic and it lasted me all day with sweat and all.
It comes in attractive packaging which is a pump bottle. It's very easy to use and looks fabulous on your vanity table.

I'm amazed how lovely this sun pact is, but sadly it is far too dark and orange for my skin colour, which is such a shame.
The powder is finely milled, silky soft and glides on the skin evenly. As you can see the packaging is adorable and very thought out, complete with a mirror, puff and a silver push button that won't damage nails and there's even a plastic flip over lid, so you don't have to lay your puff on top of your powder.

It comes with a high SPF30 which is brilliant.

Purchased at Ebay
