Dr. Jart Silver Label Rejuvenating vs. Most Moist Water Fuse BB cream

As you all know if you read my previous post, my holy grail BB cream is Dr. Jart Silver Label Rejuvenating BB cream. I've tried a lot of BB creams in the past from Skinfood, Missha, Purederm, and Skin79 but this is the only one that I can say I can't live without coz I have already finished 3 tubes of this.  I don't use foundation on a daily basis, just BB cream, concealer and powder. I got this Water Fuse BB cream when I asked my brother in law from Hongkong to buy me a back up of the Silver label, but he got confused and bought this instead! Ahh... guys! LOL But nevertheless, I'm happy I got to try this.


The Silver Label  retails for HK$212 (about Php 1,166)  while the Water Fuse for  HK$236 (about 1,300).

 

 Product info from Dr. Jart:
Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Blemish Base provides sun protection from UV rays to skin. The SPF 27 / PA++ product is gentle. It enhances skin’s natural radiant glow while covering blemishes for a clean, natural finish.
Water Holding System that uses highly absorbing sea water, portulaca oleracea extract and hyaluronic acid helps maintain healthy moisture level to leave a dewy, flawless look without glossiness. Porous powder controls sebum production while protecting skin from hazardous environmental factors.

  Product info from Dr. Jart:
Dr. Jart+ SILVER LABEL Rejuvenating Blemish Base SPF 35 PA++ is formulated by a unique professional formula, which contains active ingredients aiming at covering imperfections, concealing imperfections, and activating skin rejuvenation. It soothes red and irritated skin while providing moisture to skin. 



Both BB creams are unscented btw 

Swatches
 Dr. Jart Water Fuse Most Moist | Rejuvenating Silver Label
As you can see, Water Fuse is a tad darker than the Rejuvenating BB.
Water fuse has a beige undertone while Rejuvenating is yellow toned. 

The Water Fuse BB cream has a watery texture and coverage is just light. Doesn't cover pores, pimples etc. Since this is a moisturising BB cream meaning this is good for normal to dry skintypes and offers a dewy finish. Honestly, I find it too sheer, doesn't really do much for me and the oil control is poor. I also noticed that after 4 hours or so when I sweat, I can see the BB cream sliding on some areas of my face (even with primer underneath). Fyi, I have normal skintype with slightly oily t-zone. What I do sometimes so that this product won't go to waste, I mix 50-50 of the BB creams if I want a medium coverage.


The Rejuvenating Silver Label BB cream on the other hand has a thick consistency and offers full coverage. See how well it covered my veins?! I like this better compared to other full coverage foundations I've tried (yeah you read it right "foundations"). It feels so lightweight despite the high spf 35. I've been using this BB cream for more almost 5 years already! Oil control is good and staying power is awesome! This BB cream stays put until you take it off, but make sure to remove it properly before you go to bed.

So which Dr. Jart BB cream is suited for you? I think it depends on the coverage you're looking for and your skintype.

How I do my brows + simple EOTD

Hello guys! 
This is just a quick tutorial on how I do my brows everyday.

BEFORE
So here's my straight looking brow =P


Here are the 3 brow products I'm using:
Nichido eye pencil in black brown

Tools:
Spoolie
Angled brow brush 
So here are the steps on how I do my brows:
1. Using the angled brush I FILL in my brows using the brow powder from Sleek.  
Use the spoolie afterwards to evenly distribute the powder.

2.  OUTLINE your desired shape using the brow pencil, then run the angled brush on the "outline" to avoid harsh edges and to blend the powder and the pencil. Use your spoolie to brush the brows again.

3. Then I use MAC Girl boy browset to CORRECT (lighten) the color of my brows. 
So simple eh? Just remember to FILL - OUTLINE - CORRECT (FOC) method.
I know some they draw the outline first before filling in the brows, but it really depends on you =)

AFTER 

I used my new Bobbi Brown To Go Smokey Neutrals Eye shadow palette in this pic which I got during the launching of Bobbi Brown cosmetics in Rustans Ayala Cebu. Thank you Bobbi Brown Philippines and to Ms. Jill Baysa.


Here's the pretty palette, I used the following shades:
#1 -  Navajo metallic Eye shadow (highlight)
#2 - Cement eye shadow (crease) to blend #3 shadow
#3 - Velvet Plum Metallic eye shadow (lid)

I'm loving Bobbi Brown's eyeshadow palette! Review to follow. 


Till next time,
