Avon Ideal Shade Tinted Makeup Base in Pink Pearl

Best Blogger Tips

What the Label Says

Makes your foundation more effective by preventing creasing and fading. Makes your pressed powder more effective by preventing caking. 

Pink Pearl (corrects dullness & enhances skin clarity) 
Mint (evens out skin tone)

25 gram

P 379.00 

it has a pinkish tinge in actual but somehow my camera does not capture the color

 I am already very much satisified with my Missha BB Boomer as my makeup base. I have been using it for over a year now and have no problems with it. I bought this on impulse when i ran out of my Missha BB Boomer and could not find one as fast. Read on how this makeup base fares. 

The Good
- i got this in Pink Pearl which is meant to brighten skintone and it really does the job
- inexpensive
- has a nice light scented baby powder smell
- makes foundation or your bb cream last longer

The Bad
- the consistency is too thick as a makeup base
- because its too thick, it goes on white when you apply it on the face. make sure to apply only a little amount and blend, blend, blend

Missha BB Boomer VS. Avon Ideal Shade Tinted Makeup Base in Pink Pearl

I did a review of Missha BB Boomer here

Size & Price: 

Missha BB Boomer 40ml at P700 is slightly more expensive than Avon's Ideal Shade 25g at P395. Difference is about P2.34 / ml. 

Consistency & Texture
LEFT: Missha BB Boomer
RIGHT: Avon Ideal Shade Tinted Makeup Base in Pink Pearl
Missha BB Boomer has a lighter consistency which i love as it is easier to apply. Avon's Ideal shade is a little too thick for my liking. You cannot apply this without applying moisturizer first as it would be a bit difficult to spread. You will also notice in the picture above that Missha gives a pink pearlescent sheen when spread, whereas Avon's goes on just white. 

Both products actually accomplish what they promise to do. They both make my foundation/bb cream last longer and they really do brighten the face. In terms of keeping the oiliness at bay, they both fail at this. I have yet to find a primer that will do a good job in controlling oiliness. Between the two, i would pick Missha BB Boomer because i like its consistency & texture better and i find that it has a more brightening effect than Avon's Ideal Shade. 

Final Verdict
While this is a pretty good product, I still prefer my Missha BB Boomer as a makeup base.
