Review: Tonymoly Luminous Goddess Aura Beam + BB Cream

27. June 2013
I ordered a couple of samples of Tonymoly’s Luminous Goddess Aura Beam + BB Cream. Each sample sachet consists of two parts, one containing the primer, the other containing the BB cream.So it is a nice way to try both products.

Product description from Tonymoly:
The self-luminous BB Cream moisturizes the skin and maximizes the radiance of the skin.
+ Customized for your skin! Provide moisture and radiance to your skin.
+ Blemishes Cover! Provides firmness, smoothness and radiance to your skin.
+ Faithfully delivers the function of BB Cream.
Directions: Mix Goddess Aura Beam and BB Cream (or foundation) at a ratio of 1:2, and apply the mixture to the entire face in a gentle tapping motion. If you are only using BB Cream, apply an appropriate amount to the entire face, and gently pat your skin.
The full sized product comes in a white plastic tube with a pink cap. The sample uses the same colors: white and pink.
Tonymoly’s Luminous Goddess Aura Beam is a pink colored gel which contains very little glitter. It is very fine, so you won’t see real particles sparkling on your skin. It just gives your skin more radiance. Tonymoly’s Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream is a beige colored BB cream. It comes only in one shade. The consistency is not too runny but comparable with Missha’s Perfect Cover BB cream (review here).
If you have a look at the Perfect Cover BB in shade 23 from Missha, you can see, that Tonymoly’s BB cream is a bit brighter than Missha’s. The scent of Tonymoly’s BB cream is floral, but not as strong as Missha’s scent. But coverage of Missha Perfect Cover is still better in my eyes. Also, Missha’s oil control seems to be better…
Below you can see a picture of me, wearing Tonymoly Luminous Goddess Aura Beam and BB cream:
Actually, I like Luminous Goddess Aura BB cream, because it feels nice on the skin if you wear it on its own. The downside is in my eyes Luminous Goddess Aura Beam. It is too sticky in my opinion. It gives your skin a great glow, but it fells like putting honey in your face…and afterwards my hair kept sticking to my face all the time :/
I would recommend to try the BB cream though. Just skip the Beam, instead I really can recommend Lioele’s Pearl Base if you want some additional radiance and glow. I reviewed it here.
You can buy the full size product (45g) at W2beauty for US$ 18.11. If you use my link or the sponsor code 088505 for registration at W2Beauty you’ll get a 5.00 $ voucher after registration. You can use the voucher immediately for purchases from $ 30 onwards. The BB cream comes at W2Beauty with a special gift: a Tonymoly hand mirror with cute cat ears. I put it already on my wish list :D

    The BB cream looks great, but the primer is a no-go. Stickiness is a deal breaker when it comes to face products.

    • Fräulein Schnee 28. June 2013 at 9:06

      Yes, you’re right. I don’t mind if something is a bit sticky, but this was simply annoying, haven my hair sticked to my face :/

  • Rini Cesillia 28. June 2013 at 5:03

    yes i think that’s the problem with volumer like tony moly beam or etude house nymph aura volumer, they are too sticky >.<

    • Fräulein Schnee 28. June 2013 at 9:08

      I didn’t like it at all. I’d preferr the peal shimmering base from Lioele. It left such a nice and satin-like feeling…

  • Apple 28. June 2013 at 5:28

    ohh, good thing i havent bought any volumer yet! i thought its good!

    • Fräulein Schnee 28. June 2013 at 9:18

      I didn’t like it, , unfortunately…:/ but the bb cream is really nice :)

  • Bethany 28. June 2013 at 8:47

    Thanks for this. I wanted to try it the BB cream but couldn’t find any good swatches. I’m still not totally sure whether it’ll be light enough, because I’m Missha 21, not 23. Any thoughts? It doesn’t look too yellow there, either.

    • Fräulein Schnee 28. June 2013 at 9:15

      The color is similar to Missha’s 21. It’s definetely brighter then the 23. I can recommend you to try it :)

  • Rhia 28. June 2013 at 10:17

    I hate feeling sticky also! >.< I’ve been eyeing this bb cream because it’s available here in the Tony moly shop. It does gave a glow to your skin! ^^

    • Fräulein Schnee 28. June 2013 at 10:20

      The BB cream is really nice, I can recommend you to try it. You’re lucky having a store near you :D

  • Chee Z 29. June 2013 at 4:35

    I hate stickiness in face products too! >.< This looks really shiny as well. The BB cream looks great on you, but it has a lot of oil :O

    • Fräulein Schnee 29. June 2013 at 10:21

      I was shocked when I looked at the oil control paper :D As long as you have dry skin or combined it doesn’t matter actually…but I guess you will need some oil control fixer is you have oily skin. Thanks for commenting!

    This is on of my favorite BB creams! It’s great for someone like me with dry skin who wants a dewy finish and the coverage is great.
