Spring 2011: Visée Mineral Cheeks Baby Finish & Mineral BB Cream Baby Finish

If you see this post on another site than lotuspalace.blogspot.com it has been stolen and used without my permission. I only allow reposts with proper credits for my work (please contact me first!)!

Woohoo! Visée managed to jump on 2 bandwagons with 1 product: Mineral BB Cream! How cool is that =D
I picked these goodies up from Adambeauty before I went to Hong Kong and I am happy I did as I didn´t find Visée in Hong Kong myself when I went there. Probably missed whichever shop stocks Visée!

Anyways, I picked up the Mineral BB Cream Baby Finish and 3 of the new Mineral Cheeks Baby Finish blushes.

I like the white and sort of lighweight and airy design of the new Visée products as it looks really pretty.

The Mineral BB Cream comes in a quite small squeeze tube containing only 25g for a retail price of 1400 Yen.

It´s unscented and has a slick slightly thick texture ike most other BB creams but still it´s neither heavy nor uncomfortable to wear. The color is really light and quite neutral-toned however it will work for most skin-tones as it´s really sheer so to me this is more like a makeup-base rather than a regular BB cream as the coverage isn´t really sufficient but it does even out my skin a little.

The finish is slightly dewy which is really pretty in my opinion.


Overall this is a really lovely and mild makeup base but not really what I would classify as a BB cream.

Rating 4/5

The Mineral Cheeks caught my eye the moment I spotted them on Rouge Deluxe so I instantly knew I´d have to pick up some of these.
There are 4 colors in each palette. The lower 2 colors are deeper and a bit more matte and the top 2 colors are shimmery and more suitable as highlighters.

The texture of these is a little dry but finely milled and easily blendable. The thing I dislike about these blushes is that the colors are all too glittery for my liking except for the deepest color which is matte. It´s the kind of glitter that is quite obvious and not giving a dewy but indeed a shimmery finish.


The colors are quite standard and nothing special at all.
The included brushes are quite soft and can work in a spot but I still prefer my regular blush brush.

Overall cute blushes but they can be skipped in my opinion.


PK-1 is a sweet pink combo

PK-4 is a dusty rose combo

RD-5 is peach-tangerine beige combo

Hi from Adelaide South Australia,
I have just discovered about BB Cream. So far I've only tried a product by Tony Moly called Tomatox Tomato whitening cream in a red tomato shaped container. I bought it because she demoed a bit on the back of my hand and after a few minutes she wiped it off and I liked the lightened result. But sadly she doesn't have any sachet sample for me to trial the other stuff at home. I could have stayed longer to try all the testers but none are in English and the Korean lady can't speak well in English. So I am now starting to do my research about it whom people whom have the product.

Is there anywhere I can get some sachet samples that I can try? I am happy with my Tomatox but would there be something better than that. I'm noticing some dark rings round my eyes and been bothered with freckles since my younger days. I am now 35 yrs old and wondering if there's still any possibility of getting rid of those blemishes as Im'm tired of wearing heavy foundations and concealers just to hide it.
I just wanna try things before I buy and see what works better on my Asian skin. I hope to hear some advice from anyone in this forum and point me to where I can try some products. I'm so glad I found this web page.

The Mineral Blush in Peach Tangerine is pretty. Shame it's so sparkly.

I went to the drugstore a few weeks ago (I live in Japan) to grab an eyeliner that you recommended and ended up buying one of those Visee blushes. I got RD-2 which is the brightest I think. I was quite worried how it would look on me, as my skin is extremely fair, but I love how I can swirl the colors together and get both highlight and contour!
