And so started my mini love affair with VDL. Prior to this, the only VDL product I had used was their shading liquid – this one hadn’t impressed me very much as both the colour and thin fluid didn’t allow me much control. However, I was contacted by BB Cosmetic recently and they sent me a sample of the Beauty Moisturizer. I gladly accepted, as I was really wanting to given VDL another chance and, goodness, I am glad I did.
I started testing this one before I left for Korea and actually made up my mind about it really quickly – it was very convincing. I actually purchased a bunch of other products from VDL while I was over there too, so there will be more reviews from this brand to come.

With that, it’s on with the review!
Here’s another review for a product that BB Cosmetic sent me! This time, I’ll be looking at VDL’s Expert Blending Shade which is, essentially, a liquid shader. I’ve been a little obsessed with trying different contour and highlight products lately, so I was quite exactly when they sent me this. I have used MISSHA’s shading product in the past but didn’t like that the tube was so small. I’ll likely be looking for a large tube of that when I am in Korea next.
As for this one, it is the first product that I’m using from VDL so I have quite high expectations for it. The box is quite simple and plain, so it’s nothing amazing, but I liked the glass bottle. It’s very sturdy with a thick base and gives a luxurious feel.
The bottle actually comes with a metal pump but the reason that there is no photo of that is that I was stupidly thinking it was a twist open bottle and have been using it like that until one day when I accidentally pulled instead of twist. So – note to everyone – it’s a pump. The pump is easy to control and won’t make you disperse too much product.
As a blogger, I feel like I am so lucky to be able to work with people who also love what I love – Asian beauty products and quality service. For this upcoming post, I have been sent a package from BB Cosmetic of some of their top selling products to review. While I will be leaving the real, in-depth information for the individual posts, this is going to be a review of my experience with BB Cosmetic in general (as well as showing you the goodies that I was sent).

I found BB Cosmetic through another blogger’s instagram posts and, after checking their website, was immediately drawn to the wide variety of brands that they carry. Of course, once again, they don’t have everything in every brand, but I find that they seem to carry a lot of trendier brands or even smaller brands that are not as easily accessible internationally (more expensive brands like VDL come to mind, as well as Laniege). When I emailed them, I spoke to Chloe who was very polite and helpful with great English skills too! After talking to her, I expressed my interest in products from 3CE, Too Cool For School and VDL – brands which I saw often in Korea but not so much now that I am back in Sydney.
I’m so excited because, after talking to them, Chloe said that they would be sending out these products for me to test!
So aside from these really exciting things that they’ve sent me, let’s talk about their website and services (the product reviews can come later).
