REVIEW: Encara BB Cream

Are you once a BB cream lover like me? Finally, my love for BB cream has been rekindled. Thanks to this awesome BB cream I am about to review.

I was super blessed to be one of the winners of Aila's birthday giveaway.  This is the first BB cream I saw that has a yellow undertone to it that's why I got so excited when I found out I won.

I almost gave up on finding the "BEST" BB cream for me as most of the other products I have tried before made me look ashy especially on photos. This is a bit light on me but it did not give any grayish color on my skin. With the right powder to set it with, it perfectly matched my skin tone.

- Sleek packaging. I am just glad they made the packaging black. I love simple yet classy stuff.

- Manufacturing date is written on the box.
- It came sealed so it's guaranteed brand new and not contaminated or whatsoever.
- The amount of product released through the nozzle is controllable as long as you don't squeeze it too much.
- Yay for it's yellow undertone! FINALLY!
- Buildable coverage. You can go from medium to full. And you can also use this as a concealer. Just layer it on.
- It doesn't look cakey even if I go full coverage. Of course, with the help of a nice setting powder. I prefer loose ones as they give natural finish.

- Staying power is nice. In the photo above, after 3 hours of no retouching, my skin still looks nice. Actually, it can go up to 5 hours then powder retouch only and I'm good to go again.
- Works well with any skin type. But mind you, this gives off a dewy finish and requires a good powder especially to those who have oily skin. Once you were able to set it nicely, it will last long. 
- I love the scent. Yes, there is a slight perfume-y scent to it and it is quite addicting. Haha!
- I did not experience any breakouts while using this.
- Very 'matipid'. A little goes a long way.

- Affordable. One tube which has 50g of bb cream is being sold for Php 999 but they are currently on sale.  You can buy this for Php 499 pesos only. Super steal!

- I can't read all the things written on the box so I don't really know if ingredients are given or not.
- Not available in malls/department stores.
- Comes in one shade only.
Packaging/Apperance = 5/5
Effectiveness = 5/5
Availability = 3/5
Affordability = 5/5
OVERALL = 4.5/5

I love this BB cream. I think I will be purchasing another tube once I finish this.
