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.
