First Impression: Lioele Dollish Cera V CC

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be the Lioele Dollish Cera V CC Cream! This was recommended to me as an amazing shade for Porcelain Princesses, so I bought a couple of samples to try it out!
What Does It Do?
"Lioele Dollish Cera-V CC SPF34 PA++ is a brightening CC cream that offers high coverage and moisturizing properties. Its soft, creamy formula contains color capsules that burst on your skin to match skin tone perfectly. Rich minerals and vitamins such as seaweed, vitamin E, jojoba seed oil, and Aloe Vera provide amazing nourishing and moisturizing benefits to promote healthier skin.  This CC cream will transform a dull, tired complexion into a beautifully brightened and flawless one.

Directions: After basic skin care. Apply CC cream all over face, adding extra to places needing more coverage. Wear CC cream alone or apply a BB cream/foundation over it.

I was immediately apprehensive after swatching this CC Cream. It looks much darker on my arm in real life, at least 3-4 shades too dark and pinker in tone than what I would prefer.
This CC Cream was a little annoying for me to apply, it's very thick and a little difficult to spread out evenly. On my face the colour definitely looks too dark. But check out that coverage and dewy finish! It covered all I wanted it to cover, but when I went lighter on my forehead it let some freckles show through which is nice.
The finish is pretty dewy, though I have no doubt that my choice of sunscreen today didn't really help it out in that perspective since in the before and after shot there is a similar amount of dewiness.
The colour of my face is definitely a couple of shades darker than my neck (though the camera still washes it out a little!).
During the day I did get a little frustrated at this CC Cream since it transfers really easily. This means I get the foundation smudge on the work phone that I don't usually have to deal with, and if I scratched or rubbed part of my face I would get CC Cream on my fingers and a little baldish spot on my face. The longevity and oil control isn't awful, but it definitely made my skin look dewy throughout the day.
Would I Purchase This Product?
No. Aside from the colour being completely wrong for my skin, I really dislike products that transfer during wear because as much as I try not to touch my face, it's worse to touch your face and have foundation come off. Ick! I really liked the coverage and finish of the CC Cream, but if you have oily skin or prefer a matte finish for your CC Creams, then I would avoid this product. All in all, the Lioele Dollish Cera V CC is not awful, but it's just not for me.

  1. I tried this out as a sample as well, and even though I'm a little darker than you, it was still way too dark on me :( Plus oil control was non-existent.

    1. So good to hear that the oil control wasn't great on someone else too! I thought I was crazy haha

  2. Is it just me (or the lighting,) or did it turn very yellow in a few hours?

    1. Unfortunately by the time I get home from work the sun has gone down so there isn't any natural light. Fluorescent lighting usually makes the photos quite yellow tinged, but there isn't much I can do about it in reality (:
