Shortly after reading about this BB cream on Prettybeautiful.Net, rather coincidentally, I saw that my mom had the Elianto Miracle White Multiplex BB Cream. Naturally, I had to try it since I've been hunting around for a new BB cream.
Elianto has three types of BB creams. Miracle Multiplex for oily skin, Miracle Multiplex White for dry skin and a compact type of BB cream which gives a sheerer coverage or work as a base. Something like that.
The BB cream promises a lot of things; whitening, anti wrinkle, firming, moisturizing -- that I really couldn't care much about in a BB cream.
Read on for the review and swatches.
The texture may look more watery compared to my Missha BB Cream but it's actually very very creamy. As you can see, just a little dollop can be spreaded on a large area. It's generally quite easy to blend but the BB cream takes a little while to settle so that it wouldn't look like it's just sitting on top of the skin. The coverage wasn't too bad either. The finish is smooth and glowy, giving a decent color match but still a tad fair for me. Downside was the strong fragrance that somewhat bothered be.
I thought to myself, "Not too shabby..."
After less than 2 hours, the terror begins. My skin is not the kind that excretes a lot of oil but this BB cream made my face look oilier than a wok that has just been used to fry Hokkien noodles. Mind you, I've used a makeup base underneath and loose powder over it. Then, the makeup started to look blotchy and cakey. I was not a happy camper.
The only way I found to make this BB cream work for was when I use it with my Revlon Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup.
It worked fine for Mom so I guess this one's really meant for dry and more matured skin. I'm not tempted to try the Miracle Multiplex BB Cream though when I can get SkinFood BB Cream at the same price (RM49).
Elianto Miracle Multiplex White BB Cream retails for RM59.
