I have used this product for a decent period of time and love it. I have now stopped using foundation. It has a good coverage and is quite smooth and not too drying. However, I do use moisturiser underneath.
It is quite thick. Although it has SPF, I would STRONGLY recommend anyone using it to still use sunscreen underneath. I stopped using sunscreen as I thought the SPF in this product will do the job and then I got freckles. I never usually get freckles even before when I didn't use sunscreen. After noticing that, I started using sunscreen under this product again.
I will buy this product again.
I had a small sample tube of this BB cream and didn't buy the full sized product. I had the #23. This cream provides decent coverage but it was very drying to my skin! I use Olay Moisturizing Lotion before putting on BB cream and my face was still dry after using the Missha BB Cream. This may be better for people with oily skin?
I got this 2 months ago in the full size in #23. It's too dark for me by a little bit so I will probably go for #21 next time if I think it is worth it to splurge (I spent $9 for it for signing up for the newsletter on Missha M website. So if I buy it again, I will have to spend more).
It works pretty well as a foundation but I haven't noticed the kinds of skin benefits I expected it to have. I still get acne and still have fine lines. It actually settles into my fine lines on my forehead, so that's upsetting. It also is too pink for me while I have golden undertones. I kind of look silly when I first apply it all over my face but as everyone has said, it oxidizes so it matches a bit better. But that doesn't say anything about the quality that is just matching problems.
It doesn't last as long as I expected it to. It doesn't conceal as well as I thought it would. I'm thinking people who I heard review this only have 4 hour work days and flawless skin (or barely flawed). For those of us who have 8-12 hour work days and acne and fine lines, this is not super duper effective. It's ok, but just as good coverage as an average foundation. Need concealer! And yes I have tried to layer the stuff over blemishes twice and it doesn't help as much as you would think. Can. still. see. blemishes. And it is not cute, it just looks like I half assed my makeup pardon my language.
All that said, it's better than most foundations I have tried because it doesn't cake a great amount, it has a nice finish, it covers enough for a foundation, it doesn't break me out, and it has skin benefits:super spf, anti-aging (or so they claim), skin brightening effects, blah blah blah.
Pros: Nice radiant finish, not too shiny, medium coverage, doesn't break me out, nice color-not orange, lots of spf, I guess my face is softer and I'm brighter I guess...but dang I wish my fine lines were gone! Guess I can't have everything they PROMISED >XP geez... oh and cruelty free :3 (except for the caviar part)
Cons: Still have fine lines and acne, comes off after 4-5 hours (needs a finishing spray), DO NOT use everyday minerals base over because it will look sooo cakey, doesn't conceal as much as expected, accentuates fine lines, expensive, no yellowy undertone colors for fair skin available.
WIth age I am experimenting with more and more products trying to adjust to my changing skin. I love to look made up, I love full coverage foundation, the feeling of product on my skin is normal to me. Having said that I was skeptical about using a BB cream because I am still very oily and didn't think this would help control it nor provide the amount of coverage that I am used to. However, I was still very interested in the good-for-your-skin qualities of them. So I purchased this BB cream and I love it! Oily skin is not an issue and let me tell you what my dynamic duo is. I use this bb cream in #27 (I have nc30-nc35 skin), it's light to medium coverage, definitely evens out any redness and covers minor acne scarring. It does feel a bit sticky going on but blends easily into my skin, does not feel like its sitting on top of it but sinks into it like a skin treatment should. After I let it set for a few minutes, I top it with MAC Mineralize skinfinish and both of these products combined have such a beautiful finish and texture on my skin. Any additional coverage I need comes from the powder and I have the full coverage that I was looking for. As with all makeup I require a touch up mid way thru the day but this cream does not break down and turn blotchy like a regular foundation does on my skin. Nor does it oxidize and turn orange. Even though I am oily, this combo performs better than any oil controlling foundation which is the most surprising element! I also have noticed after using it for a few weeks that it does calm any redness in my skin and feel I am seeing positive changes in my skin tone. Admittedly I did not have high hopes for this product but I absolutely love it and recommend it!!
Shade 23 is a perfect match for my complexion. After application this BB cream oxidizes immediately and my face looks as if it has no makeup on. It definitely evens out my skin tone. The coverage it provides is medium to light, however it feels really heavy on my face. I think that the more hours you wear this the heavier feeling it gives you. My skin doesn't get oily after application, it suffocates, as if my pores get plugged and are gasping for air! On the other hand I really like its soapy scent which lingers for hours. If you are one of those who don't like intensely perfumed face products and a heavy feeling on your face this may not be for you.
I have a really sensitive skin and Im acne prone.
Does cover the acne scars, blemishes.
Acne scars seems fading after I remove the bb cream from my face.
Affordable and easy to use.
Breakouts after a week.
Since I have a fair skin tone, my face looks pale after I put it on.
Doesnt stay long on my face. My face gets really oily and shiny after 2 to 3 hours.
I wont buy it again because it causes breakouts.
Though it causes breakout after a week, I still use it for about a month because I do not want to wastes it. And what I end up was pimples all over my face. So for acne prone skin and oily skin, I definitely dont recommend this product.
Background on my skin: Acne Prone. Sensitive. Oily. Acne Scars. NC 30-35 in MAC. I have warm undertones.
This is becoming my holy grail product! It has the best coverage among all my other BB or CC creams that I have tried! I am in shade 27 honey beige and the color matches me PERFECTLY! This BB cream does not clog pores and I notice that my acne scars are lightly fading after about 1 week of use YAYYY!! Love love this product. I don't use foundation anymore! I only use this BB cream and set it with mac blot powder so that I do not get oily too fast.
CLAIMS OF BB CREAM: SPF 42PA+++, oil free, anti-wrinkle properties, whitening, dermatologist tested.
CONSISTENCY: Thicker compared to the other BB or CC creams that I own. However, it might be because it gives a lot of coverage. It feels lighter than regular foundations but it is slightly thicker compared to other BB creams.
COVERAGE: It gives medium to full coverage. Medium coverage if you apply one layer and full coverage if you apply 2 layers. I consider full coverage: Mac pro long wear foundation & revlon colourstay so you can estimate how good the coverage is from that :) 1 pump is enough to cover my acne scars! If i want full coverage, I will go for 1 1/2 pumps :) Do not pack on too much on the skin because it might get cakey in about 3 hours if you have oily skin like mine
LONGEVITY: I live in a humid country, temperatures here are about 27-34 degrees Celsius. The BB cream lasts for about 5 to 6 hours before it started to fade.
PRICE; I bought this for SGD$28 on sale from watsons. Original price is SGD32.90. Every single cent was worth it!
PACKAGING: Comes in a sleek red tube with a pump at the top. Very hygienic. Even the pump has a cap so that it is very travel friendly and you won't have the BB cream splattered all over your bag when you travel!
APPLICATION: I do not rub or massage the BB cream on my face! I pat it onto my face and it gives the best coverage EVERRRR in the world of BB creams coverage. By patting in the product, it also forces the skin to absorb the product in. This has skincare benefits so it does not harm the skin :) I have been using this BB cream in replacement of my other high-end foundations can you believe thisssss. Foundations are strictly makeup whereas BB creams have benefits in them ;)
I rate it 4 out of 5 because the oil control is not good. I get oily within 2 hours of wearing it. I get oil with all my other BB creams anyways so it wasn't a big deal. I blot my face about once or twice a day. If I set the BB cream with my mac blot powder, I will be able to get away for about 3 hours without blotting!
In conclusion, I definitely recommend this product if you are on a hunt for a BB cream to try out! You won't be dissapointed.
Additional information: Shade 31 is darker than shade 27 but has pink undertones.
I like the idea of BB creams however, all the colors always looked too orange or yellow (atleast the ones I sampled.) I noted that my face was looking better and even a little bit of foundation was looking fake on my face so I researched BB creams and decided on the Missha M Perfect BB Cream ..... I am very pleased .... I use the lightest color #13 and it works perfectly on my NW 10 skintone ...... I need some coverage on my chin where I have light discolorations and M Perfect Cover BB Cream covers my flaws (for a BB cream, I find it very thick and surprised that it adds coverage.) The cream goes on nicely and does not oxidize (yes it does not oxidize) and looks natural. The only downside is that this item is not sold in the U.S.
I don't know why it has taken me so long to review one of my most favorite products! I got this tube about 8 months ago from Glossybox, and just now ran out and repurchased. The product I purchased from Amazon is genuine and unexpired, and at a great price ($16)!
I use this on a daily basis instead of foundation. It goes on grayish, but don't be worried, it will oxidize to match your skin! The cover is a solid medium, which is excellent for a BB cream. With a setting powder, it lasts all day, with minimal breakdown, and never feels heavy or cakey. It looks so natural and flawless, I love it!
The finish is very dewy, but is easily toned down with a powder ( I love Revlon Nearly Naked over this). I will repurchase as long its available.
No 23 is a great match for my medium skin tone
I absolutely love this product. I have normal skin so this bb cream works perfectly well on me. The consistency is light and not too thick. It blends really well either with a brush or your fingers, I use both. The packaging is really hygienic, comes with a pump and a cap as well. I got mine at a local asian beauty counter for $28. Totally recommend this bb cream for first time bb users. One of my HG bb creams. Amazing stuff.
