Swatches: Skin79 BB Cream Miniature Set

21. March 2013
I did some swatches for the sample kit of Skin79 BB creams from my recent ebay haul compared to Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. The set of Skin79 BB creams contained small tubes of 5 g of the following BB creams:

I put a nail polish bottle beside, so you can see the size of the tubes. They are quite small, but perfect for testing something new :)
The set contains:
  • Hot Pink Super Plus BB Triple Function Cream
  • Diamond The Prestige BB Cream
  • VIP Gold Super Plus BB Triple Function Cream  
  • Diamond Luminous Pearl BB Cream

The Skin79 BB creams are lighter in shade compared to Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in #23 when squeezed out of the tube. Nevertheless, applied on the face and blended in I don’t see anydifferences and the Skin79 BB creams were not to bright for my skin tone. Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream and Hot Pink BB Cream are comparable to Misshas BB Cream. They are all thicker in consistency and have a good coverage. I liked them a lot and I’m considering to buy either of these in a full-sized tube. Diamond the Prestige and Diamond Luminous Pearl have a lighter consistency and are more liquid. Diamond Luminous Pearl contains small glitter particles and leaves a dewy look if applied on the face. Diamond The Prestige feels as moisturizing as Diamond Luminous Pearl but leaves a matte finish.

I just tried out each of the four tubes once each, so I can’t tell anything about the long-term effects, but I will keep you updated :D…

    I’ve been thinking about trying one of these mini kits for a while. Everyone raves about BB creams and I’ve been wanting to try them.. These swatched really well and it gave me a little more confidence in the products. I am totally going to have to get this kit!
    I stopped by from the Stop Drop and Beauty Blog Hop and am following via Bloglovin. Would love it if you stopped by my blog as well. :)
    Have a great day!

      These kind of kits are really great for testing. I would also recommend you to look for sample sachets on ebay for example.
      Thank you for stopping by, I’m also following you now :)

    I was actually looking at this kit last week on eBay :) I’m pretty pale so I think the shades might be too dark, but it’s not expensive so I might just try it! Following you from I know all the words blog hop. X

      I’m very pale as well and the Skin79 shades from this kit matched me very well, especially the Gold.

      Thank you both for commenting. The skin 78 bb creams do a great job in blending. I’m more on the pale side in winter and they suited my skin tone.

    […] because they do a quite nice job- not perfect, but nice. I reviewed these in the past (>>here<<). 5. The Face Shop Mango Seed Line – Repurchase? Yes! I really loved using these […]
