4U2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder Review

It is an absolute must for me to blog about an amazing product the minute I finish road-testing it. I rarely give reviews about stuff that don’t really wow me [despite getting it for free].

4U2 Cosmetics sent me a bunch of products to try out and I really wanted to test them before giving in-depth reviews. Although I already did a tutorial using the products, I still needed to put each of them under separate tests. By tests, I mean, myself using them throughout the day—this way, I can really really tell that they work.

I really wanted to put this blog post out simultaneously with the experiment video that I am yet to make, but I just have to release my raves about this product!

Before anything else, let me give you a little background about 4U2 Cosmetics:

4U2 Cosmetics is exclusively manufactured by Colorcos Co., Ltd. (Colorcos), in Thailand under an exclusive and registered license with Bel*Air Cosmetics Corp., USA. 4U2 was launched in the Philippines in Sept 2007 in an exclusive partnership with Watsons. It is now available in major SM Department Stores and Watsons Nationwide.

I have always seen 4U2 Cosmetics in Watsons but I never really got around to try any of their products (now I am wondering why!)

Anyway, the first product from the bunch which really amazed me is the 4U2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder.

  1. Confidence builder through all day complexion perfection.
  2. Has an exclusive formulation to achieve evened out and natural-looking skin tone
  3. Controls oil build-up on the face
  4. Has SPF 15 PA++
  5. Suitable for all skin types
  6. Comes in 3 shades (mine is #1)

I used this product to set my foundation in today before heading to school, it was my first time to give it a try and I never really thought it would be SOOOO AMAZING. No, really. My honest first thought about this product is that, “this doesn’t look special, I bet it wouldn’t work on me”  I definitely ate my words when I started dusting it all over my face.

Let me discuss this point by point…

1. The packaging is amazing. Who wouldn’t want a tiny PINK compact powder? It screams power to the feminine society!

2. It comes with a facial sponge which you can use, although I used my Sigma F30 Large Powder brush to apply it (you can use a sponge or a brush—whatever floats your boat)

3. Upon dusting it all over my face, my skin felt so VELVETY! (“Cakey, you mean…”) NO, NOT CAKEY AT ALL! That’s what really amazed me because usually when a powder gives full coverage, it would tend to look cakey on your skin, right? That totally does NOT apply to this product

4. My face looked totally flawless, believe me. Not only that—I noticed a hint of brightness on my skin! A healthy glow, you can say!

5. It blended very, very well with my skin tone—I am not kidding. It really DID blend with my skin tone

After all that amazement, it was time to head to school and put it under the test.

I rode a tricycle to school, it was a 10-minute ride with all the heat from the sun, the wind blowing all over my face and again all the heat from the sun (just to emphasize) You would THINK I’d get out of the tricycle with all my makeup melting away, huh?

I alighted looking fresh and FEELING fresh! No sweaty feeling (mind you, I was wearing a corporate uniform with a hot blazer) I was thinking, “Okay, so far, so good.”

I DID NOT PUT ANY PRIMER, BY THE WAY!

I got into out air-conditioned room and went on with my 4-hour night class. I retouched only once (around the nose area) slight build up of a teeny weeny shine, but that was it. My face looked totally fresh and flawless all night long.

When I got home, everything looked intact. I did not look cakey at all!!! It was amazing. Hence, I had to write this review at once.

Do you feel like trying it out too, now? You can most definitely do! Why? It’s super affordable at only PHP 194.00!!! (Come on, now!) 194?! *now this product is definitely going in my PHP 500 Makeup Challenge video*

Available at all leading department stores and Watsons nationwide.
