comes in a cute, red 30g tube
I'm not sure how many shades are available, but I have #10 Light Beige and #20 Natural Beige
#20 Natural Beige
bare face + pimples + red disclorations
after a layer
notice that it already covered most of my reddish marks(sorry for the patchy look, was in a hurry to take a picture I wasn't able to blend well ^_^)
added another layer for more coverage
PROs:Creamy consistency, easy to blendProvides medium to heavy coverage, best applied with fingersNo heavy feeling on skin Matte finishNo need to use a separate concealer Did not break me out, no allergic reactions tooIt has SPF!Aside from SPF, it also has Vitamin B3, C, E and Pearl Extract to reduce the appearance of spots Keeps my oilies at bay for 3-4hrs, but I didn't need to retouch the whole day. I just used oil blotting sheets..
I used Palgantong Theatrical Powder to set everything before stepping out
CONs:Can look patchy or streaky on skin when you have dry skin, so make sure you moisturize well first. I used it when my skin's peeling a bit because of Obagi and it didn't look nice. But the coverage is amazing!A bit expensive at Php1200/30ml tube but you only need a little to even out skin discolorations (layer if you need more coverage) so I bet this tube will last longNeither of the two shades is my exact shade, but Light Beige blends on my skin after a while
I find that the best way to apply this is using your fingers. Dot the product on your face and then blend outwards. This will even out your complexion a bit. Then dab a little more product on areas where you need more coverage. Start with just a little amount, dabbing it on the spot you need to conceal and adding (dabbing) a bit more for more coverage. I confess that I tend to apply a lot on my first few tries so I ended up looking all-patchy. But don't worry, you can remedy that by wetting a sponge and dabbing it on those areas.
I still can't vouch for its healing/skin brightening properties as I don't get to use this everyday, but I really like the coverage.
Another thing: This is not available locally but there are online sellers that sell this baby and other Palgantong stuff. Check out BeautyandMinerals and get yours fast as she only has limited stocks. Don't forget to get the Theatrical Powder too! Set this BB cream with that loose powder and promise, you'll have perfect-looking skin the whole day.
