Clio Vampire Face 21 Collection with swatches

This got me excited when I spotted VF21 (Vampire Face 21) collection at Watsons (I love vampire theme and very pale base colors). Their previous collection - Bloody (Devil & Angel) liners collection are awesome too!

I'm a fan of very pale and brightening skin look..
- Because I'm quite fair to begin with, so I won't look very pale or sick with pale foundation/base.
- Pale blue tone pink kinda brighten up my complexion so much better then just beige ivory shade. (Some... even though they look light , but when they touches my face (I have pink undertone), the shade make my face look dark and warmer then the rest of my body.

So When I see the VF21 CC cream in pink.. I'm in heaven ~lolx

What is VF21?
In reference to the classical myth of eternal youth, Clio names its new range Vampire Face 21, both as a nod to its youthful-looking ambassador Sandara (age 29), as well as a promise of the age-erasing efficacies of its new makeup range. With the VF21 range, a dewy, beautiful complexion is easy to achieve.

VF21 Cushion CC
A color control cream in a cushion, this contains moisturizing and skincare properties. It contains antioxidants and SPF50 PA+++ to protect skin against environmental damage.

Available in 2 shades : 01 Pink and 02 Beige

VF21 Cushion CC have ....

Ingredients list...

The cushion delivery system
The Korean Brand's VF21 Cushion CC stands out from a plethora of similar CC cream offerings with its cushion delivery system. The cushion delivery system features a polyester sponge that, when pressed, releases just enough product onto the puff.

Not only that, the porous cells on the sponge introduce air evenly into the product, turning it sheerer and more refined. The result is a complexion enhancer that, quite literally, cushions the skin comfortably.

At the same time, the product contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Lonicera Japonica Flower and Lilium Candidum Flower Extract, so you won't need to worry about washing the puff.

The cc cream is seated nicely at the bottom of the case - under the sponge (the sponge wasn't soaked with product like most of the similar "cushion" products)

And when I press the puff on the sponge, it pick up a nice amount of product for a small area of my face (a little goes a long way~)

The puff that came with this CC cream is a "waterproof" type of puff 
(prevent absorbing the product into the puff)

Swatches in various lighting
(01 Pink) and (02 Beige)

Both Pink and beige were quite light and pale ... really suit the Vampire theme.

The cc cream (the one I have is Shade 01 Pink) -  pale but brightening on my skin, doesn't make me look odd. Sheer but buildable coverage, does help to even out my complexion... I simply love the finishing! Dewy~

I only test it out at home, haven't wear this CC Cream out yet, so I'm still not too sure about the oil-control power and everything... will do another more details review post soon!

VF21 Volume Brightener
This complexion highlighter has light-reflective mineral powder to instantly brighten selected areas, making fine lines, dark circles and signs of fatigue disappear. Delivering easy application at the click of a button, it hides skin flaws and ensures a velvety finish while shielding skin with the Berry Complex, a powerful antioxidant, and Broccoli Extract, which strengthens skin's natural defense system.
