Pink vs. VIP Gold SKIN 79 BB Creams: What's the Difference?

Hellooooo everyone! 
Today I thought I'd make a comparison between the SKIN 79 VIP Gold and Pink BB creams. I've often found myself wondering which would be right for me, so I thought I might be able to help you with what I know! Yay! ^_^
The Korean company SKIN 79 has many types of BB creams, however I find that the most common ones are the Pink and the Gold VIP. There's also an orange one, but I haven't had much experience with it nor have I found it very common. In addition to that there are several others, such as the Snail Nutrition BB cream (which I just discovered today that it exists and I now want to try it because of it's pretty white and gold packaging :3) and the Oriental Gold BB creams (some of which come with a little blush/all over color thing, isn't that cute?)
And now, some possibly useful information about the two:

SKIN79 Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm:
Yayy isn't it pretty? :D
Price: For 40 g on their website, they are selling this for $30 (though you can definitely find it for cheaper on Ebay or Amazon, though there is the risk of it being a fake).
SPF?: Yes; SPF 25, PA++
Colors: To my knowledge this only comes in one shade, however it does oxidize and adjust to your skin color pretty accurately. It starts out greyish, but turns more fleshy within minutes.
Coverage: Medium; here are some photos to give you a vague idea~
And with the BB cream. 

There isn't a gigantic difference, however I did notice my skin tone to be more even and for redness to be un-reddened. A layer has pretty decent coverage, and a little bit goes a long way.
Recommended for: Oily/Combination Skin
Special Ingredients: Tangerine Oil (For lively skin), Arbutin (Aids in whitening of skin), and Phyto-Complex (Provides nutrition)

VIP Gold Super Plus Beblesh Balm:

It's got caviar :3
Price: Same as the Pink; $30 on their website for 40 g
SPF?: Yes; SPF25, PA++
Colors: Also only one color, but this is just a teensy bit lighter than the Pink. A little bit.
Coverage: Medium-low; the coverage for this is just a teensy bit worse than that of the pink, but this may just have to do with how much I applied. 
Just a little bit worse. Not much.
Recommended for: Dry skin. This is moisturizing, which obviously would be bad for a person with oily skin, especially in the summer.
Special Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil (For nutrition and resilience), Purslane Extracts (relaxes the skin), and Madecassoside (Improves texture).

Here's a photo showing a comparison between the colors of the two, along with the SKIN79 Chiffon BB Mousse which I did a review of here.
The Chiffon Mousse looks so out of place... o.O Poor awkward thing.
So yes, they look very similar. In fact the only real difference is the skin type it's meant for; Gold if you're dry, Pink if you're oily/combination. Aside from that, the coverage, texture, and color differences are very minimal, so if you're stuck, just evaluate your skin-type, and go for it!
I hope this was helpful, and I'll see ya in the next post :3
Bye bye!
