Welcos Merit Killing Me Zombie BB Cream [Review]

To be honest here, I only got this BB cream because I am a sucker for zombies and for cute packaging. Combine the two together - and we've got a winner.

... and of course I love Korean BB creams [especially for Summer!]

I've also never heard of this Korean brand before!

I got mine from this seller HERE. It's super inexpensive. They have 25% off at the moment!

Packaging wise, it comes in a standard squeezy tube [50 ml]. I just wish that the cute zombae was also printed on the tube.

Like the majority of BB creams, this comes with a number of properties: mainly 3 [whitening, UV protection - SPF 50+ ... WOAH, and wrinkle care]

Unfortunately it comes in just one shade - which is quite light. [swatches below]

Its consistency is quite thick, and I found that unlike other BB creams, this applies better with a brush, rather than with your hands. This also applies better if you use thin layers at a time, rather than 1 thick layer.

It covers redness and minor imperfections, so thumbs up for that! I especially like to use this in mornings [especially in this hot weather - and thanks to the UV protection there's no need to apply sunblock]. It hasn't broken me out.

It has medium coverage [quite good for a BB cream!]

I find that it is quite sticky, so needs to be set with some powder.

I especially love mixing this with a bit of my normal foundation.

Hope you find this review helpful,

Pupa Milano Sporty Chic Spring Collection | Like a Doll Cheeks and Hair [Review]

A while back, the ever so generous Pupa Milano in Malta agent sent me two products to try out, with one of them being this Limited Edition [Spring] Like a Doll Cheeks & Hair colour from the Sporty Collection.

Hopefully, I am not too late in reviewing this, and you can still easily find this around Malta & Gozo.

As the name implies, this colour can be used both on your hair and as a normal blusher [hence the unusual, domed shaped packaging]. Truth be told I haven't tested this on my hair as I'm not really fond of temporary hair products [I've used my fair share of hair mascaras - do you remember them? ehhh, the 90s] 

This has a really light pink shade, which true to its name, reminds me of porcelain dolls - or dolls in general anyway [If I'm not mistaken, this comes in 2 shades - this pink one and a coral-y one]

I like to apply this straight from the packaging, and then lightly blending it with a blush brush [as opposed to picking the colour up straight from the packaging with a brush] Beware - this is really pigmented so you must be light handed when applying this.

It is very lightweight-y and looks matte once applied. 

It lasts quite a long time [which is no mean feat, given this ghastly humidity]. I especially love layering this on top of a cream blusher.

I believe that this shade would suit a number of skin tones. I am loving using this now that I am bit more tanned, for example. 

This Pupa Milano Like a Doll Cheeks & Hair costs €11.60 and you can get yours from selected Pharmacies, Perfumeries and Beauty Salons around Malta and Gozo.

Much love,
