Sofina Primavista Bright Up Base SPF 10 PA+

I was interested in trying something from Sofina's new base makeup line Primavista for some time now but found the prices rather high online so I kept myself back from ordering.

However recently I was lucky to snatch up the Bright Up Base on Ebay for US$23 (shipping included) which is a nice deal considering it retails for 2940 Yen (about US$33). You can get this on adambeauty for US$30).
I also have to rant now a bit lol. Ebay was such a fun place to win nice steals and deals but those days are gone. You'll always find someone outbidding you no matter how high you put your maximum bid. It really sucks and I decided to stick with "buy it now" or other online shops from now on. Rant over hehe.

The Bright Up Base comes in a nice basic pale peach pump bottle with a brown cover.
The base itself is a pale peach cream with a very finely milled shimmer so it gives my skin a nearly dewy glow (the shimmer is not really noticeable after blending the base in).
The base manages to even out redness on my cheeks and around my nose nicely so it really makes a nice base.

And yes, it is brightening as it takes away dullness and slightly camouflages dark shadows under my eyes (nice prep for eye concealer, too!)

The unscented base makes my skin smooth and feeling moisturized so I really like using it now in the cold weather here.

All in all a great base I really like! A cheaper similar product is the Etude House Pore Smoothing Peach Base in Peach.

It sure looks like a lovely product. I like the fact that it is unscented.

It looks VERY brightening! Seems similar to P&J's moisturizing primer. Lovely! :]

That base looks awesome. Just wondering, do you still use a BB cream when you use this? Ever since the BBs came into my life, my MU base have all been neglected :P
