PACKAGING – The packaging of this one is very similar to other Celeteque products. It is housed in a plain white tube with the Celeteque brand logo and a pink accent that ties the entire look altogether. Honestly, I doubt that you will be able to notice that this is a BB cream if you have this beside other Celeteque products since the product’s packaging doesn’t seem as such. Be that as it may, I still like how simple it is and how detailed the box is (with manufacturing & expiration date, ingredients, etc). It comes with a screw cap with a tiny nozzle that dispenses just the right amount of product. The tube is also really thin, which I find really cute for some reason, and easy to pack for travelling purposes.
APPLICATION/SHADE – I apply this using my RT Expert Face brush and it went on smoothly. I had no problems blending it. The shade is a bit lighter than my skin tone, so I had to set it with a loose powder (Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder) and sadly they offer only this in one shade. I also noticed that this gives off a bit of a white cast with photos taken with flash. Therefore, if you plan on getting your pictures taken, you might want to use a different product instead.
CONSISTENCY, COVERAGE & FINISH – I like the consistency of this one. Not to thick, not too watery either. Just right. It also provides a decent coverage, but can definitely be buildable. I prefer to apply just a single layer (sometimes 2) then cover up some areas with a concealer then set it with a loose powder. Like most common BB creams, it has a dewy finish and it has a whitecast, which is not surprising because it has SPF.
PERFORMANCE & LONGEVITY – I’ve been using this all throughout the entire month of July, and I’ve noticed that even without a primer this BB Cream lasted on me for more than six hours which is quite impressive. My makeup stayed in tact as well as my blush is which is definitely a good indication that it has a good staying power. Further, as you may already know, I do have a dry skin, but I didn’t notice this product emphasizing any dry patches on my face. I also find this product quite moisturizing and it felt natural on my face.
SCENT – This product has a really (and I mean really) faint ‘foundation-like’ scent. Nothing to be worried about unless you’re THAT particular.

I LOVE THIS BB CREAM!
I just wish they offer it in different shades. But thank God for setting powders, right?
Other than that, I really don’t have anything else to say about this BB cream. I have been using this non-stop ever since I got it and like I said, I’ve been loving it. It’s affordable and it provides a nice coverage.
As previously mentioned, the coverage is amazing, with just a single layer, you can cancel out all your redness, discolorations & can pretty much even out your skintone, and it can last on you all day. Depending of course on your skin type, As for me, I have a dry skin, but I’ve read lots of reviews about this one, and so far most of them are saying that it’s a good buy.
It’s pretty affordable, and sometimes it’s also free (at Sample Room, so why not take a chance?
So those are my thoughts regarding this BB cream. How about you guys? Do you like this BB cream? Did you get one from Sample Room? What’s your favorite BB cream? Let me know
