Tried and Tossed – Myra VitaGlow BB Cream Review

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.

  1. Sayang I mean why put shimmers or glitters on a BB Cream? I don’t know what’s their definition of BB Cream, to the makers of this not so awesome product. Kaya pala ng sale ng 50 pesos… Quite surprising BB cream for 50 bucks?! hehe.. I have respect for Myra E pa nman…

    1. Maxipeel Concealing Cream has limited color selection too. It makes you sweat a little during the first few minutes after applying but you’d still look presentable after patting off the sweat with a tissue. The scent is quite strong. It’s an ‘ok’ product, but I’d only recommended for people who don’t need a lot of coverage. :) It’s kind of like Myra E without the shimmer.

  2. Ohh my gulay! parang shimmer powder hahaThanks for the review Rae! I’ve been seeing this pa naman on IG and FB these days.

  3. Hahahaha Twilight hahaha! I read and actually like the books but despise the movies. And wait lang, BB cream ba talaga ito o highlighter? Yung totoo?

    1. Parang BB Cream poser hahaha. Ibig sabihin ba nun na-catfish ako? Yun ba ang gamit ng term na “catfish”?

      This should be named Myra VitaSparkle. :D

      1. What is catfish (I know it’s hito) even huhuhu matanda na ba ko at di ko na alam ang mga terminologies na ito? -_- Mag submit tayo ng proposal na palitan ang name to VitaSparkle :p Also, who wants to look like a freaking vampire? They’re too pale. And in the case of Twilight vampires, they’re too pale AND too sparkly. Hahaha

        1. Mali pala ang usage. Here’s what catfish means (from Urban Dictionary) – A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they’re not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.

        1. I like Robert Pattinson. I admire his being a minimalist. He prefers to live in a small apartment and live a simple life sans superfluousness. But, of course, it’s not very ideal to live in a random apartment in the city when you’re a famous actor.

          1. Yeah. Even though he’s a millionare now he still drives an old beat up Ford. I think he belittles himself too much though.. i agree that he needs to be bit more secure. Cuz I’d stalk him like a mofo when I see him hehehehe :)

  4. I had the same problem with the Étude House BB Cream, satin finish with shimmer, clearly I am not the shimmer type. I now stay away from BB creams and will stick to matte foundations. Am too old to be shimmering. I guess now we know why they slashed the price. If it’s tinted moisturizer I suggest the Laura Mercier if you haven’t tried it yet.

  5. That bad, huh? Lol. I used to use that before, but it wasn’t all that shimmery. I used it everyday and no one ever really commented or asked if I was going for a Twilight vampire look.

        1. Their marketing folks are probably living under internet rock. They should be googling product reviews for this, right?

  6. Wahaha the twilight angle is hilarious! I’m pretty ok the myra tinted moisturizer though (I think I have the old variant/tube) even though I did notice the sparkle effect as well.

    1. Hahaha, got that from the husband, he once told me para daw akong si Edward Cullen. In denial kasi ako na hindi ako sparkly. That was with the tinted moisturizer

What do you think?
