|L - R: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly #02, Lioele Water Drop & Lioele Silky Highlighter Touch|
I've been using Lioele's Water Drop BB Cream and I really like it! It's light and cooling on hot summer days. I live in The Valley (of Los Angeles) and the temperature is almost unbearably warm in the summer. Recently I purchased Holika Holika's Aqua Petit BB and wanted to compare the two, as well as Lioele's Silky Highlighter BB Touch. For reference, I'm a MAC NC30, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand, and MUFE HD Foundation #118. I have normal/combination skin with occasional mild acne.

Aqua Petit Jelly - lightest in texture, like jelly (hence the name), very easy to blend
Water Drop - light texture, cooling on the skin, water droplets form when you blend this into your skin, not as light as Aqua Petit Jelly
Silky Highlighter - light in texture, sheer, easy to blend
Aqua Petit Jelly - light to medium depending on how many layers you apply. I need to use a separate concealer for blemishes or hyperpigmentation.
Water Drop - light to medium depending on how many layers you apply. I need to use a separate concealer for blemishes or hyperpigmentation.
Silky Highlighter - not sure because I don't use this all over my face although I know some beauty bloggers do. I think if you have NC20 skin or lighter, this would be fine to use as an all-over BB cream.
Aqua Petit Jelly - this matches my skin tone perfectly
Water Drop - this is almost a little bit too light at first but after it oxidizes, it blends in with my skin. Near perfect match.
Silky Highlighter - perfect shade of highlighter for medium skin with yellowish undertones. Subtle sheen. Although it has some shimmer, it is not overly glittery and shiny.
Aqua Petit Jelly - semi-matte photo finish
Water Drop - dewy
Silky Highlighter - subtle sheen
