Lioele Beyond Solution BB Cream

2 weeks ago, I picked up a tube of the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB cream from Pretty and Cute. I've been wanting to test out a foundation with a little more coverage than the Water Drop BB (which I am absolutely in love with). The reason is, you all know I have some freckles on my cheeks, and for everyday occasions, a light coverage BB cream that doesn't hide any of my freckles is fine with me; but for those special occasions where I want to look my best, whether it's attending an important event, or standing in front of the camera for a photo-shoot, that's where Beyond The Solution comes in.

The texture of the BB cream is much thicker than any of the others th
at I have tried, thus, better coverage. I figured that after I applied it to my face, I had to let it sit for about 2 minutes before applying any other beauty products to my face. It goes on thick and sort of sticky at first, but after a few minutes, my skin feels much smoother than before.. But sometimes, that's just the price you pay for better coverage. Be patient, it's worth it. What I love most about it, is it lasts for a long time.. I didn't worry about touching up or reapplying.. And with this product, a tiny amount is all you need, because it expands over time.

After my first time using it, I felt like a couple pimples came out of nowhere (one below my chin and the other above my lips), but I shouldn't blame it on the BB since I've had quite a share of greasy foods those past couple days.. Anyway, the BB Cream did an incredible job concealing those bumpy imperfections. Oh, and my annoying under-eye circles!! Since I can never seem to permanently get rid of them, Beyond the Solution helped me hide them pretty well, giving me that extra boost of confidence anywhere I go. Now, two weeks later, I haven't seen any random zits, so if it did cause those earlier ones, they also improve over time.

If you haven't picked up a bottle of Lioele's Beyond the Solution BB Cream yet, I say, try it out.. There are a couple different sizes that you can choose from.. Get a small tube if you're just planning to give it a shot, and if it works well for you, grab the bigger sizes.. It'll last much longer.... Plus, the packaging is incredibly cute!

P.S. make sure you know what shade you are..
it goes on a bit lighter, so it brightens up your face. You could
tone it down a bit by applying a light dust of bronzer over your face,
and apply a 2nd layer of bronzer (or blush) over area of the face that you
want to accent (such as your cheeks, sides of your forehead, and chin).
