PACKAGING
     First, let's see the cute elegant packaging!



 The box is as always sophisticated and elegant, like normal Anna Sui products! Me? Love it!

 and this is what insideeee!

 This may look normal to you, but i imagine at least if a princesses use BB Cream, they would like the design to be like this hahahaa. Plus you need to see the cap, it's sooooo pretty!

Whatever i do, i will not lose the cap lol.


SWATCH & USAGE 


Anna Sui Protective BB Cream texture is quite light but not too watery. I got shade no.2 and it suits me pretty much! You see it on my hand? When i blend it the color absorb perfectly and really resemble my skin. Of course it's a bit lighter for my face, but after a few moment the shade will adjust and perfectly fit the skin! Especially when i add shading or bronzer hehehe. 

This is the swatch on my face.

     I take a picture right after i use it, so it might still look too white and my camera doesn't really do justice like usual hehehe. Because it's a bb cream, you can see that the coverage it's not full, especially it can't really hide the bumpy acne face. But it covers my uneven skin quite perfectly. It feels quite light on the face and the best thing, it can covers my panda eyes quite good!

I recorded a video on how to use this BB Cream:

     Basically all you have to do is apply it by dotting it on your face and blend. As for the panda eyes, i put some amount under my eyes and wait for a moment before blending it by dab-dab the bb cream. The result for panda eyes? Amazing, as i didn't use any concealer or base but it can covers my panda eyes pretty good :)

OVERALL REVIEW

     The texture is not that light, but not thick also, and it's not too watery, just perfect i guess. When applied on the face, it's also feels light, but still, you can tell that you're wearing some cream, but it's not heavy even after a few hours. Plus, it feel a bit cool when i apply it, i guess it's because the mint (back then i haven't read that it contain mint hehhee).
     Well, about the coverage, i should say it's not as good as when using foundation (like ofc), but it's quite good hiding the uneven skin tone or acne redness, it just won't hide the bump or dark acne color perfectly. The finish is semi matte, so yes, you don't need to add more powder actually, because it's last quite long even without powder. Hmm, normally i could stay up 3-5hrs on my skin, it might be a bit oily after a few hours, but not much, which makes my skin looks dewy and healthy. If you prefer matte all the time, you can always fix it with a little powder.
     Last but not least, i'm in love with the simple yet sophisticated scent and packaging.
     Like all of Anna Sui product it smells like rose and i love it!
     Oh and it does makes my pores look smaller hehehe.

Pro:
+ quite light in the face
+ doesn't look cakey
+ semi matte finish
+ last quite long
+ has extra purpose like as primer and skin care
+ has a little cool feeling when applied
+ smells so damn nice
+ cute packaging
+ easy blend
+ light-medium coverage
+ perfect for daily
+ smaller pores look
+ high UV protection
Cons:
- a bit pricey for a bb cream (but for this i guess worth it tho)
- contain too little bb cream, only 21ml hahhaha

Overall Rating: 4/5

     I love Anna Sui Protective BB Cream! I mostly use this when im out if im not using my cushion. :)

Love,
