I remember saying that I won’t buy this again. But can you blame me? A tube only costs 50 php and it didn’t sink in to me that this is just a renamed and repackaged tube of their old tinted moisturizer.
The smell, texture, and finish is the same as the old one but the ingredients listed are not exactly the same (rearranged maybe?).
And — as if the sparkle situation wasn’t bad enough in the previous release, they decided to add more. WHHHYYY???
The sparkles can now be seen in any lighting situation. With the old one, you can only see them in fluorescent light.
Note: My phone camera couldn’t capture the smaller specks, so, just imagine that there’s a mini-galaxy of various sizes of shimmer on the back of my hand. It gets worse if you try to build up coverage — it’s like 3D shimmer :D
I highly recommend this to those who are going to a Twilight-themed costume party some time in October, if Twilight is still relevant. I’m telling you, no other bb cream can give you that much shimmer. Serious question: Do all vampires sparkle?
I hope they consider making a VitaMatte variant. I’m sure there’s a sizable market for us who do not dream of becoming Edward Cullen’s wife.
P.S. If you still wish to try this, I’m going to try to dissuade you one more time — spend your 50 pesos on something else, e.g., McDonald’s Cookie Butter-flavored McFlurry OR add another 50 and get the Maxi-Peel Concealing Cream instead.
