Having tried more than 20 BB creams, believe me when I say I love it especially now that BB creams come in more than 2 shades! Say what?!
Missha has always been in my to-buy list of BB creams because I've read good things about this brand. 3 or 4 years ago, this brand wasn't here in Manila yet so that got me even more excited to get my hands on this. Missha was the only brand I had in mind when I went to Korea. That's how determined I was to try this brand.
Two tubes later, I still love this Missha BB cream.
Let's see what that 'Perfect Cover' is all about!
When I swatched this in Missha store, I was a bit hesitant to get it. Why? Makeup stores in Korea only have two shades of BB cream and foundation! #21 and #23. Take your pick. Wow. I see the logic in there cos all of them are fair-skinned! But still?! What if they get a tan or something?!
switch of #23. I find this light and a bit greyish.
#23 blended. Coverage is similar to a foundation.
Here's my bare face.
Here's ONE layer of Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. ONE layer!
It's even on different angles.
I have never encountered a BB cream that gives full coverage with just one layer. Now, I understand why a lot of people are saying that Missha is the best BB cream out there. Despite its full coverage, it still feels light on your face. Blemishes concealed! Staying power on me is up to 8 hrs. Just enough until I get home from work. I have combination skin so if I stay long outdoor, I retouch on that area only to keep my face from shining. This dries semi-matte so to be safe, set it with powder if you're going for a matte look! I always go for a matte look thus setting this with powder.
The only thing that I do not like about my Missha BB cream is its shade. I have #23 because they do not carry the darker shades in Korea. Here in Manila, Missha has all shades. That shade that fits me well is #27. I've swatched it several times but I'm trying hard not to buy it because Missha is so expensive here in Manila. I got my Missha BB cream in Korea for KRW15,800 which is about PhP800 (give or take). This same BB cream here in Manila retails for PhP1,600. Twice the price, such a rip off! What I do to make make my face match the rest of my skin is set this BB cream with a darker setting powder and I'm good to go!
I'm currently in Japan and I'll try my luck looking for a Missha store here. Hoping that I find one and that they carry darker shades and most of all, I hope that the price is not too jacked up! Let me know if you've tried Missha!
Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!
