Innisfree Mineral Whipping BB Cream: Review

It's always more fun when your styling or makeup products dispenses in a foam/ mousse form. It could just be the kid in me but it was definitely one of the reasons why I bought this Innisfree Whipping BB Cream.

The cap is dirty, I know. I'm sorry but I didn't want to clean it up just for this photo since this is already an empty container. ;p 

At first, I was not sure if it would really foam up like other mouse products (hair mousse). I had to do some research. I mean, the online beauty community is so big that one of them must have tried this product already, right? Right? Well, that's what I thought too. So I looked and searched but only got limited write ups regarding this particular product. I got a little bit frustrated so I decided to just buy the product and just trust on the fact that this is a Korean product (always a plus for a K-Pop fan like me) and that Innisfree is a good established road shop brand with good skin care and makeup items. My initial plan was to purchase this, try it out then make a video review on my channel to add onto the limited number of posts regarding this product. I was so set on my goal that I didn't realize that I was using the product too much and that it got used up even before I was able to take a photo of the actual product, let alone film a video review for my channel. So here I am, very sorry, because now you only have my words to rely on. I don't have photos and videos to prove whatever I am trying to say. BUT! If you've been a follower/ subscriber of mine for quite some time, you'd know that I don't sugar coat my reviews. I say it as I view it. It doesn't matter if it's sponsored or not, I just write everything down honestly. So expect the rest of this post to be full of honest words straight from the heart (or brain, whichever you prefer).

So initially, I didn't really like the product. I mean, I liked the packaging and I like the fact that it actually foams up. But the thing is, it only dispenses white mousse that doesn't really provide any coverage nor color. It was like I wasn't putting anything on my face. Honestly, I thought I wasted PHP800 for something that can be described as 'more than disappointing'. Good thing my sister borrowed it from me, shook it vigorously, and dispensed the product. Imagine my surprise when beige colored foam came out from the nozzle! It turns out, I wasn't shaking the bottle vigorous enough. The color is a good light beige color with NO grey undertone. The coverage is light but it does brighten the face and evens out my skin tone. Concealer is definitely expected for blemishes and other discolorations, though. It feels very light on the skin and gets absorbed easily with a nice finish between matte and dewy. I don't get too oily with this particular product and the best part is it didn't break me out. If you have nice skin to begin with, I would highly recommend this product.

I particularly got this from gailygirl on ebay with my own money. This is not a sponsored post.
with love, Anna Luisa

The packaging looks really nice but I'm more of into medium to heavy coverage :(


Anna Luisa said...

@Becca: I will. Thanks for telling me about her. :) Followed you through bloglovin. I can't seem to follow you through GFC, I'm not sure why though. I hope to meet you too! I just hope that when it happens, I don't get too shy.

@Gellie: Medium to heavy? Aww that's too bad. This definitely isn't the one for you. :(
