Tony Moly's The Oriental Gyeol Goun Two-Way Pact.
Please do not expect to see this limited edition set at Tony Moly stores near you because I was lucky enough to grab the last few sets left a couple of months ago! It took me a couple of tries before putting up a review. Why? because this shade is a tad bit light on me but I still manage to use this for review on days I don't need to face clients, you know, those random days I just face the computer! Hahaha
The Oriental Gyeol Goun Two-Way Pact (Php1,148.00) is supposed to be just a two-way powder foundation (two way meaning, you can use this wet or dry). Now, the limited edition set is perfect because I also get to try The Oriental Gyeol Goun BB Cream (full size priced Php1,348.00).
The shade I got is in 02 Natural Beige. If you purchase the Two-Way Pact separately, I believe they also have Dark Beige as their darkest shade, but asking a couple of Tony Moly stores, they seem to be out of stock!

As for any BB cream and powder foundation application, you always start with the BB Cream first and I like to apply a tiny amount using short quick strokes. Using a smaller concealer brush, I use the same BB cream to "spot conceal".
The coverage of the BB Cream is build-able, light to medium heavy coverage. I can actually cover certain redness, spots and dark undereye circles. The texture is smooth, easy to blend and applies like a dream! It has a tiny hint of floral scent but it goes away after a couple of minutes.
Dry skin users like me can actually get away without setting this because it gives off a semi-matte finish.
As for powder, you can choose to use a sponge or a brush and I went for the latter because I have dry skin so just a couple of powder dabbing on oily areas around my face is enough to set everything.

Half Face ResultAs you can see, my skin looks fresh, really bright and healthy as opposed to my dull (make-up less) face. The effect is still natural considering the shade is at least 1-2 shades lighter than my neck.
Overall, I would highly recommend Tony Moly The Oriental Gyeol Goun BB Cream for users with normal and dry skin, the Two-Way Pact for users with normal, combination and oily skin. I personally prefer both because it gives me that super clean, fresh-looking skin even on days my skin looks and feel like crap :)
If you would love to test this product out, check with Tony Moly SAs near you if the set is still available, if not, you may try out one of the 2 product first and see how it fairs!
