Food: Coffee and Cafe Box

A few weeks ago, i visited Shin Okubo with my friends.
Shin okubo is known as korean town in Tokyo and there are many korean restaurants and shops here.

It was raining heavily the day we were there so we took refuge at a cafe

Review: L’egere Aqua CC Cream

Last September, i went to Taipei for a holiday and whilst there, i picked this up.

L’egere Aqua CC Cream

There is a non aqua version of this CC cream but when i tested the testers available, i found it to be far too dry and cakey for my liking. But this could be due to the tester so i am not sure.

Pros
- cheap [i forgot how much but legere is never expensive]
- has spf [though only 20]
- easy to wear, easy to blend, smooth
- will be good for summer, the watery formula is very soothing in the warm weather

Cons
- only comes in one shade [it worked ok for me though, i am NC15 at MAC]
- can be hard to buy
- low coverage [some ppl dont like that but i do]

Overall Thoughts
I wanted this to work as I never quite the hype that was the Legere BB cream [it oxidised badly on me and made me look gray XD]
But in regards to this,I like it! To be honest i have not used it a lot as the weather is very cold in Japan right now. I assume i will use it a lot more come summer though. As to whether i will repurchase, i am going to have to say no. Whilst i think it isnt bad, i dont think its HG status. So i’ll be looking around a little more!

It came with a free beauty blender rip off sponge XD I havent tried it though.

Happy Shopping
