Happy Monday!  (^_^)

Well, I hope it is for all of you because I'm over here with a mean case of allergies.  I was sick last week because I caught my lil man's cold from the week before but now I have this dry, itchy cough w/ irritated eyes.  Ugh.  I am goin to take some Claritin tomorrow so I can function at work.  (-___-)*

Enough of my b*tchin'.... I wanted to show you two new BB creams that I am going to start using.

As most of you know, I really love my Etude House Magic BB Cream (no SPF).  It covers well and is inexpensive.  BB cream seems to work better for me opposed to regular ole foundation.  Anyway, I purchased the following a little while ago but just decided to open it up since it's still sunny these days.  The consistency seems a lil more runnier than the usual (from what I noticed on the hand swatch).  I'll do a full face swatch soon.

Etude House BB Magic Cream SPF30

I recently purchased this brand:  Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream Plus.  This will be my first time using it.  So far, from the swatch, it feels pretty good.  The coverage seems about the same as my original Etude House BB Cream & Lioele BB Cream.  The timing was perfect because as I was researching Skin79, a review from Ms. Eki showed up.  You can check her review here.  She has the one before the one I have now so I'll let you know how it may compare.  I especially love how there is a blush/lip tint on top.  The dispenser is quite impressive too.  I'll do a more thorough review soon.

Here are the product photos & swatch:

Be back soon! XO, ~L
