Review of My Asian BB Creams (NC30): Holika Holika, Canmake, Lioele and Skin79

L to R: Holika Holika Aqua Petit #2, Canmake Perfect Serum #2, Lioele Water Drop, Skin 79 Hot Pink Super+
Having recently become obsessed with Asian BB Creams, I've acquired a small collection.  I have four of them, which seems a bit excessive to me only because I don't think I will use them all before they expire.  I believe liquid makeup stays fresh for only one year after opening the container.

I did a lot of on-line research before I purchased these creams so I am happy to say I really like them all.  Every shade works with my NC30 skin tone and normal/combination skin.  None of them make me break out.  


L to R: Holika Holika #2, Canmake #2, Lioele and Skin79
My ratings:

Highest coverage:  Skin 79 and then Canmake

Longest lasting coverage:  Skin79

Highest SPF:  Canmake with SPF 50! And no greyish cast!

Sheerest:  Holika Holika and then Lioele

Favorite for the weekends:  Lioele because it's easy to apply and it has a natural dewy finish, but if I know I'll be in the sun I use the Canmake because of the high SPF

Favorite for work:  Holika Holika because of the semi-matte photo finish and then the Skin 79 for the coverage

Good for dry skin:  Lioele because of the dewy finish

Good for oily skin:  Probably the Skin 79 although I don't think any of these would be my first choice for very oily skin because even though I have normal/combination skin, I still have to set them all with powder to reduce mid-day shine.
