Evangelist BB Cream Review
You guessed it…..I have another BB cream to review…the fascination is endless! LOL!
Today’s BB cream is called Evangelist which is designed by celebrity makeup artist Yanagi Nobuto and was released mid last year if I’m not wrong. It’s hogged the limelight at Cosme, a hugely popular cosmetics ranking site, for several months last year and I must say it does stand out from the crowd because of its added marine placenta, EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor; which in laywoman’s terms, it helps to speed up cell renewal), and touted 3D effect.
I nearly didn’t get it because it cost almost 4000JPY (USD52) but the buzz on Cosme ate away at my curiosity, plus the colour match with my skin was excellent. I got mine in shade No.2 Ochre and it blends seamlessly into my skin.
The packaging is pretty eye-catching as well, but when I first cast my eye on it, I thought it was a bit loud and targeted at flashier young girls but the star ingredients would attract more mature women who are looking for stronger healing and anti-aging properties.
How does it compare to my beloved Hada Labo BB cream in Natural Ochre? Well, while Evangelist BB Cream does make me look like “my-skin-but-better”, things kind of go awry several hours after application and this BB cream gets a bit blotchy and oily. The Hada Labo one has a more refined finish and I somehow look fresher too (I know I sell the Hada Labo BB products at the store but this is truly my honest opinion).
I suspect that Evangelist BB Cream is a bit too rich for me in summer and might work better in the fall and winter. The marine placenta thing actually intrigued and disgusted me at the same time — I’m definitely a confused vegetarian with a major beauty habit – LOL! Would I recommend this BB Cream? Actually I would but I think drier skin types might appreciate this more all year round. I would continue wearing this because it is such a great match for my skin tone and there’s nothing a bit of powder that can’t fix a slightly richer base. In terms of luminosity, it’s actually imitates real skin more than any other BB cream I have.
By the way, Evangelist just released a Skin Care Powder (which is a loose powder) that has marine placenta, EGF, and hyaluronic acid. I’m very tempted to try this and I wonder if it would enhance the BB cream. Check out how bad-ass Yanagi Nobuto looks — more rock band grunge than chi-chi makeup artist — am very amused.
Have you tried this BB cream? If so, what do you think of it?
PS: I have yet another BB cream that I’m loving now by Coffret D’Or — review will be up in a while but I have a very good first impression of this one so stay tuned!
