You might have heard of Be Creation which is a Japanese/Korean brand offering a vast variety of accessories (be it nail ornaments, eyeshadow applicators, false lashes, wigs etc. etc.).
I believe the brand itself (Lucky Trendy Be Creation) is actually Japanese but the Beauty Magic BB Mineral x Silk line has been designed in Japan but produced in Korea.
The Beauty Magic BB Mineral x Silk set contains:
-BB Cream Mineral x Silk SPF30 PA++ in Natural (15g)
-BB Powder Mineral x Silk SPF30 PA++ in Natural (6g)
The item that mainly interested me was the BB Cream so I ordered the set on Sasa as a special promo was going on (US$13-something instead of US$23.40). I probably wouldn´t have gotten it at full retail but US$13 seemed a good deal.
I got the set recently and the first thing I noticed when I removed the protective plastic slip was that the pouch smells strongly of acetone, much like nail polish remover. That´s usually not a good sign in my opinion (read an article about toys..they said the stronger the plastic reeks of something the more toxic stuff might have been used).
Anyway, the pouch is cute though with its imprinted roses.
The cute pink tube of the BB Cream Mineral x Silk seemed to be half empty but that´s probably because the tube is just too large for the 15g included.
The BB Cream has a rather dark peachy color and is a bit hard to spread as it´s very thick. Furthermore it has an unpleasant smell... it is unscented but somehow smells gross (I will not say of what the smell reminds me as I don´t want to gross anyone out...but it stinks!).
The coverage of this is actualy not bad however the color is off for me as it´s too dark.
This also made my skin slightly itchy which is always a bad sign.
The BB Powder Mineral x Silk on the other hand is super pale, almost white, with a very light glowy sheen (no shimmer or sparkle at all though). It doesn´t smell but the powder puff included (the flat one, not the fluffy one) smells like the pouch...either the odor transferred from the pouch to the puff or it is made of the same stinky stuff.
The powder feels silky and finely milled and doesn´t leave a white cast on me because it´s very sheer (I´d say this is nearly transparent). It doesn´t dry out my skin either but sets any BB Cream nicely.
It´s loose which is something I generally dislike but I think this is good enough to enjoy it.
The fluffy puff is really cute and soft but I haven´t tried it with the powder yet.
Overall you can skip this as the BB Cream stinks and is hard to blend and feels rather heavy and the powder is nice but nothing outstanding by any means.
Since I have no real use for the BB Cream and powder I will give those 2 away to one of the commenters to this post as something that doesn´t work for me might work for someone else!
I think you should be at least NC20-25 to get use out of the BB Cream.
