Product Review: 4u2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder SPF 15 PA++

Sunday, November 4, 2012

     My favorite powder foundation as of the moment will bid goodbye next month because I've already hit the pan :( As much as I wanted to repurchase a refill of Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover, methinks of looking for a cheaper alternative because I'm saving extra cash for my father's dialysis right now. So I guess it's somehow a perfect timing to try this bb powder that I saw months ago from fellow beauty blogger and friend Aya of Codename Aya. I asked her about the price and it's a Eureka moment when she told me that it's less than 200 pesos. I'm sure you've seen this cutie from beauty bloggers and most of them gave positive reviews about this product. I really wanted to get my hands on 4U2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder the day I saw it from Aya but it's OOS. It's always OOS, meaning the prorduct really delivers! 

     So after months of waiting, I received a message from the SA at Sm Fairview where I made my reservation. After two weeks of using this bb powder, I can finally share my thoughts on how well this product performed on my combination skin. And oh before I forgot my technique of applying face powder is using a kabuki brush in a stippling motion. This method gives me a sheer coverage. I only use the sponge for my undereye area to set the concealer and prevent it from creasing.

What I don't like:
  • Always OOS. The SA said that they only stock 3 pcs. per shade. 
  • Shade no. 01 is a tad dark on my fair skin tone.
Will i repurchase? Yes after hitting the pan. 

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. Now I know why a lot of beauty bloggers are raving about this product and why it's always OOS. It's a great alternative to my HG powder foundation and very affordable too! I highly recommend :D It's worth every peso and for a cheapskate like me it's a real steal!

  1. I hope your dad get's better + good job for finding something cheap.

    I haven't checked out 4U2. Hopefully they have something very yellow. But recently I bought Human Heart Nature's Sand Dollar. The refill is 195. I only bought the re-fill coz I might not like it. 4U2 seems cheaper considering it already has a compact case for that price.

    Anyhoo, I'm liking HHN's so far.

  7. @Shen Jarlega- Thanks for the visit dear :)

    @twinkoolet- ok, let me know how you like it. Thanks

    @Janet- If you really want to try this siguro your best option is to have a reservation. Sabi kasi ng SA dito sa Sm Fairview na yung delivery nito is hand carry and limited lang yung number ng pcs.

    @Gellie- Yup, cutie talaga and ang liit lang. parang laruan nga sya e ^_^

    @Aya- Naku Aya, thanks ha :) Will Wait for your review. Di ko pa na try sa pics e. Will update this post with my photo wearing this powder :)

    @Rae- Thanks Rae :) It's a relief nga din kasi pag tipid mode talaga kailangan mura pero effective naman sana. hirap din kasi sumugal minsan na mura nga hello breakouts naman. Ang dami ko din nababasa about HHN mineral cosmetic line kaya lang ang layo pa kasi nung store nila or I have to go pa sa trinoma if ever gusto ko bumile :(
