So that's for the swatches, extra zoomed in pictures included so that you can see 'em clearly. the colors, textures, etc. I'm not going to review the other two because it was only a sample. Anyhow, the thickest goes to BRTC whitening & repairing BB cream, while the most watery one is BRTC Gold Caviar BB cream that has the darkest tone among those three.

As you can see on the swatches above, they didn't match really well with my pale (yellow?) skintone. I'm not pink though. I am Not. Really. hahah... and to my surprise, the tone! three of them! it looks slightly DARKER compared to my real skin tone. I'm not that pale in real though. But even the 'fair' BRTC jasmine water bb cream turns out dark on my skin (lll´Д`)

My verdict on BRTC Whitening & Repairing BB Cream: 
I super love the result because it gives off a dewy finish on me. I'm not a fan of matte-finish make up. It doesn't give me any breakouts or so. I've already got like 2-3 pimples on my cheeks. with its nice coverage, nothing to see here folks xD~ as for the packaging itself, nothing special, ordinary BB cream in a tube type with profesional and sleek looks. The only things I don't really like about this BB cream is the paraben, and its grayish tone. However, I love the fact that it contains Vitamin C as whitening purpose, and other beneficial ingredients like hyaluronic acid and peptide to help recude wrinkles.

Tone:  Photobucketslighty DARKER than my skintone(ノ_<。) and Grayish. It looks ashy on me, and turns out darker after oxidized. See the swatch? But it's not a big deal though since I used just a small amount on my face, the darkening isn't noticeable.

Texture: PhotobucketThick, the thickest BB cream I've ever tried. So better coverage, eh? definitely ^^ the thickness makes it harder to spread. I put a small amount and used make up sponge (for the first time!) to blend in the BB cream. It blends well and gives no cakey finish.

Smell:Photobucket Subtle fragrance and neutral, if I never read the ingredients, I would have thought this BB cream is non-fragranced.

Coverage: PhotobucketI considered it GOOD compared to some other BB creams I've tried. Almost foundation-alike.

Result: PhotobucketDewy finish and healthy glowing skin. Minus the cakey look = LOVE♥

Oil Control:Photobucket Since it gives off a slight dewy finish, so a thin layer of 'oil' should be there on your skin. But it do controlling sebum secretion nonetheless, I only need one sheet of oil blotting film at night to absorb excess oil and all done.

Staying Power: PhotobucketQuite good, or at least better than my old skinfood BB Cream. I didn't set it up with powder but it goes along till night.

TIPS: To prevent cakey look, use moisturizer and apply very small dab amounts (BB cream) and lather into skin until desired look and coverage is achieved.  This BB Cream blends well with other BRTC BB Cream
Here's how I look with BRTC Whitening & Repairing BB cream. Taken with my old samsung cellphone, lolz. sorry for the low quality (☉`ェ´☉)ジ cuz I left my digicam at my BF's room yesterday. And as for today... I feel super lazy to retake a full face-swatch. Mwahaha... Actually, I rarely rarely put on BB cream. On lazy -I have to go- days, I prefer to stick with concealer alone. a bit concealer here and there. Okay. So that's all for the review, I hope it helps you (*^ ・^)ノ⌒☆ See ya~
