L'egere Shiny Pearl BB cream review + YU-BE cream

I finally gave in to BB creams, after months of resisting the temptation from many bloggers n some Taiwanese shows, kept telling myself that I don't really need it, I gave in.... I was kinda skeptical about it at first, thought it would probably just be like another tinted moisturizer, but after i tried it, I fell in "LOVE" the very first time i put it on my face!!!!!! L'egere Water Drop Shiny Pearl Blemish Balm Cream is what I've been using for a lil over a week. This is the new upgrade formula in the pink packaging according to this insert from inside of the box (it's all in chinese so i didn't take a pic). It's oil free, water-proof n sweat-proof!!!!

Description on the back


I think the color is neutral, so it should match most skin tones, if not all.....

my skin is more even and it glows after

I even tried it on RIGHT HALF of my son's face to show u that it'll work on darker skin tones. this is when i just put it on so it does seem a lil lighter than the left side, but like it says on the box, it will match ur skin tone after 15 minutes!!!

I really love this BB cream, I've heard some BB creams can make ur skin grayish, but this one matches my skin perfect!!!! I don't think I can live without it now!!!! It has tiny sparkles in it, but it's very fine, not over the top like Eyeko cream. I'm not scared to put this on my entire face. It gives me a natural glow n highlight. I think it's good for my skin too because I fell asleep one night w/ it on, I woke up w/ skin looking even better than the night before!!! Of course, it's recommended that u take it off w/ cleanser at the end of day. The coverage is light to med, so some ppl might need to use a concealer. what i do is after i apply it on my entire face, i would "dab" or "pat" on a lil extra on areas that needs more coverage. I'm still willing to try others, because I love testing out different things, so I ordered Dr Jart black label n Missha perfect cover the other day, can't wait to try them too!!!!!

So, I can't stop checking out my skin in the mirror for the past week!!! Thanks to L'egere n Yu-be. Yes!!! it's my the other new love!!!! My skin always act up when seasons change, especially winter. as I age, it gets worse every year as well. A week ago, I was still frustrated w/ my skin, it would be oily, greasy and dry all at the sames time. it's weird, my skin felt tight, but when i looked in the mirror, it was oily. if i put less moisturizer, it's not enough, if i put too much, i would get a million of tiny bumps on my cheeks, forehead and chin. i don't know what they were...maybe blackheads n whiteheads??? my skin looked irritated, and i looked 10 years older.

That's when I received my sample of Yu-be cream, which i originally ordered to try it on my daughter because she has eczema. After reading about the cream, I thought, why not try it on my face. I didn't really think it would work, I thought it might clog my pores, but my skin was so bad, i didn't think it could get worse, so I put it on that night, and I woke up the next morning, I could already see a difference in my skin. It really calmed my skin down, less bumps, n skin more even. it's been a lil over a week, i wake up w/ glowing skin every morning n i haven't even tried it on my daughter yet :P because i don't want to run out of the samples before I receive the full size one. All I put on is just a pea size for my whole face at night, n in the morning I use a lil less because I wouldn't put on my T-zone. It has the menthol smell, but it'll disappear soon after u apply

This is w/ Yu-be, Legere, Milani Luminous on the apples and a tiny bit of EDM original glow in beige neutral on my t-zone and the triangle area under my eye to give extra highlight

The red dot is not a pimple, it's broken blood vessle :P

Note: I got my L'egere from Taiwan and it's way cheaper than ebay, if i get a number of ppl interested, i could order in a lot which cuts down shipping cost for me and give u a better deal. If u want to try some samples in a jar, we could work something out, but I'm in canada, shipping cost is generally more costly than the states, tho i live right next to Detroit, it costs $8 tunnel fees there n back, so it would not be cost effective for me to cross the border to ship out some samples


  1. OH wow girl -- where in Canada are you? Im venturing out to Toronto in the next few months/weeks.

  2. When you mean Taiwanese tv show did you mean dramas or thoses celeb.s show? J/W That Legere bb cream you got looks so good! I was debating on which to get, either the original or this one. I decided to get the original cuz I thought the pink one would be too shiny. After seeing you with it on, I'm wishing I got the pink one instead. You look so good, it makes you glow! Your son's a lil cutie! He reminds me of my lil brother when he was young.

    How much would it be total for the bb cream + shipping if you get enough ppl?

    I think I'm gonna get some sample of the Yu-be! Thanks for the follow-up!

    BTW I love Dr. Jart+ Black Label! And Missha Perfect cover is very good! They both do the job! Right now my fave. is Dr. Jart+ Black Label. I can't wait to try the Legere!

  3. @KT I'm in Windsor, which is next to Detroit...U moving to toronto??? i lived there for a very short time years ago. my godmother n her family has a few well known restaurants there, u should check em out while u there!!!!
    @xphoenix06 it's this show mostly about makeup, skincare n fashion, it's a very popular show in taiwan.
    it'll probably be around $18-$20 + shipping, i'll have to price on shipping... they charge $2.99 on ebay. i hope i'll get it that cheap
    so u tried them both???? i can't wait to try them too!!!!!

  4. thanks for the bb cream review! i wanted to try that one out since it's winter and my skin gets dry around february every year o_O. where did u order ur bb cream? not just the l'egere but the dr jart and missha? cuz i went on the missha site and i didnt see where i could order it. thanks!

  10. Hi! i live in Canada too. do you live near toronto by any chance? because i live in Brampton.
    I have been interested in the L'egere BB creams and if there is a cheaper way to get it than ebay. please contact me if you are planning on getting it

  11. you look beautiful! thanks for sharing the review on this bbcream.. btw you still look great after having two kids!

  12. Hi can you help me? I plan to order a lot of Legere creams from Taiwan. I'm in Seoul now. but I don't know where to order online. Hope you can help me thanks!

  13. I got the L'egere Water Drop Pearl because it looked good on your son, lol! I'm darker than him, but it's working out for me. I'm going to have to "tweak" it a bit, but for now it makes such a nice base before I put on my powder MAC Studio Fix

  14. hi jenny!

    i also bought the l'egere water drop pearl and noticed it was darker than the regular l'egere in the purple box. I've only tried it once since i bought it though but i'm glad there are bb creams like l'egere made for darker skin. yay! i bought it for $45 aussie(expensive i know!) from a local store near me but atleast i was able to try it before buying it.

    thanks for following my blog btw. i'll be sure to add you to my links. i appreciate it =D

  15. Thank you for your post! I will definitely try L'egere since it's pretty difficult to find a shade dark enough for me. BTW, your son is such a cutie :)
