This product I found to be a little strong fragrance wise....maybe because my nose is a little sensitive to strong scents? I actually really like this BB cream I find that it has really great coverage over my face. It evens out my skin tone really well especially since I have eczema on my face. I got No. 23 and I was afraid it would be too light for me but it turned out to be the perfect shade. My face tends to be very sensitive and dry but this didn't cause any problems and moisturized my face very well. The only let downabout this product is that its a little pricey and maybe it's just me but the scent is a little over powering at first.
One of my fav bb cream so far! I have oily skin that just oxidizes everything I wear, leaving me looking like an orange grease ball at the end of the day. I like the scent, spreads pretty easily, a bit on the creamy side, light coverage, and leaves a nice dewy finish. Its lighter when you first apply but will oxidize a bit to match skin tone. I would definitely repurchase this, I just hope they will keep the tube packaging. I like pumps because it's very hygienic, but its so wasteful!
I love love love this product! I am pretty skeptic when it comes to foundation because they tend to disappoint me more often. So I decided to get the 10 ml sample first. I am NC 30-35 and I got #23 Natural Beige. The first thing I loved about this is the smell- it has soft, flowery smell to it ( more like smell of baby products , lol) . I applied this foundation and it was chalky white on me ( I wasn't surprised ,after reading all the reviews). But then in 10-20 minuted it oxidised and matched my skin tone. Now , here is the best part - It gives you NATURAL HEALTHY INNER GLOW !! It looked like as if I was glowing from the inside . I was so happy for that. It stays for 6-8 hrs for me. It has pretty good staying power. The only con is that it doesn't have oil control. I didn't put on primer the first time because the consistency of the cream was very light, so I thought I wouldnt need one. But I was soo wrong. You will want to prime your face before applying this BB cream. As for its other properties, it is a very good sunscreen and prevented my break outs!! I guess this is gonna be my dailywear, holygrail foundation for a while !!
This is by no means a bad product and would probably be well liked by a lot of persons- this just did not meet my particular needs. Due to this having such a high SPF, I was expecting this product to be rather creamy and opaque. I was disappointed to discover that it is actually light and sheer and leaves a moist appearance on the skin. I prefer a thicker consistency with more of a medium coverage and a slightly matter finish. This did not provide the type of coverage that I prefer and need. This could theoretically be used just as a sunscreen and then a heavier foundation put over it. But this would not be emollient enough for me to use as just a sunscreen. My skin type prefers a creamier and more moisturizing sunscreen.
Also, this product is very heavily scented. It has a strong perfume smell- the smell kind of reminds me of a lighter, more powdery smelling version of Calvin Klein's Obsession. I really didn't like having to smell this most of the day. The back of my hand- where I placed this before dabbing it on- smelled of this all day- even after I wiped it off.
I used the #13 shade which did suit my skin color perfectly. I typically use the lightest shade of foundation in pretty much any make up brand (I always use Ivory, Fair, etc). So, if you are a very fair girl, then go for the #13 shade. For me it was pretty much a perfect match. And the shade is nice and neutral- I did not find it to be orangey at all.
If you are looking for light, sheer and dewey with an awesome SPF, then this is the tinted moisturizer for you!
I used this only once. If you are interested in trying this, it is on my swap list.
I felt it was time to give this product a review. I ordered mine off of Amazon for around $17+shipping. I'm about an NC15 in MAC, though I've never owned anything by them so it's difficult to say. I'm quite pale with yellow undertones. I'm one of the lucky few who can actually find a shade close to my skintone. I use the one in shade#23. It's a bit darker and pinker than I'd like, but I use so little it really doesn't show.
I apply less than a pea-sized amount and it's more than enough. In fact, it looks terrible if you use too much. BUT, if you use the right amount, it covers light discoloration beautifully and more naturally than anything else I've tried. You'll need a concealer for spots and for undereye circles though. It's not pigmented enough to cover those entirely and it doesn't build coverage or anything or layer well at all. If you have oily to combo skin, you'll want to powder a bit.
If you are using retin-A, this product is a god-send. It was the only thing that didn't look hideous on my peeling skin and it did seem to help it quite a bit. It does contain mineral oil, so if your skin reacts negatively to that ingredient definitely skip it. I'm very breakout prone, I've been using this for months and my skin has improved a lot and the product hasn't caused any breakouts.
I would say it lasts fairly well and doesn't rub off, but then again I use so little I don't think I'd notice if it did.
I'll definitely repurchase and would suggest this to anyone who is fair. Packaging and price are great too!
For reference, I'm an NC25 and I use the Missha M Perfect Cover BB in No. 23.
This is a great foundation. My skin looks smooth, with a dewy finish. I often fear looking too "wet" at first, but the product dries to a more natural look. I prefer to blend it out with the Sonia Kashuk Flat Top brush. The formula is really lightweight, but keep in mind that it is a foundation that does need to be cleansed off before going to bed. I have dry skin, so I love how moisturizing the BB cream is, but you may want to be cautious if your skin is oilier. I also love the pleasant smell. It smells like a combination of flowers and plastic (if that makes any sense) that's just really refreshing. This is the only BB cream I've used so far, but I'll have to try other brands in the future.
* MY SKIN - NC30, normal to to dry skin. Occasional dry and flaky spots in the winter and occasional hormonal acne.
* MISSHA #23 REVIEW - (a) PACKAGING- in a hygienic, airtight, opaque 50 ml. upright container with an easy-to-control pump dispenser; (b) TEXTURE - a pleasant lightly-scented creamy liquid that blends easily without streaking or caking; (c) COVERAGE - light to medium coverage; (d) SUN PROTECTION - SPF42 PA+++, the PA+++ means that it contains UVA-filters, providing the highest protection against UVA; (e) WEARABILITY - wears like a very well-formulated "second skin" tinted moisturizer with very strong staying power; (f) COLOR - although the creamy liquid comes out of the bottle as an odd ashy gray color, it does oxidize to perfectly match my NC30 skin tone after about 10 minutes; (g) ADVERSE REACTIONS - absolutely none so far and I will update again if anything arises; (h) PRODUCT APPLICATION - I apply it like a tinted moisturizer with my fingers. One gentle pump is enough because a little bit of this BB cream goes a very long way. I don’t need to powder afterwards because it has a clean matte finish.
* ONLINE SHOPPING - I purchased from COSME-DE.com. The entire ordering process was smooth and worry-free from beginning to end. The international shipment arrived to me by safe and secure signed delivery, approximately 2 weeks after my order was placed and quickly dispatched.
* RECOMMENDATION – Good for normal to dry skin in the NC25-NC30 skin tone range.
* SUMMARY - The Missha Perfect Cover BB cream in #23 creates a smooth and satiny skin texture, giving me that nice, natural “no makeup” look. It instantly improves my complexion; my skin appears radiant and healthy. Thanks to Missha Perfect Cover BB cream #23, my skin looks flawless. Highly recommended!
works great when i'm too lazy to wear normal foundation. i'm nc25 and have been using this in 23 for two or three years now. i've tried others but this is the closest match. the finish is great and skin-like, it's good at covering moderate redness and fills in my acne scars like no other. the oil control sucks, but it's not too bad if you use a good mattifying primer. i've used this with a beauty blender and it worked all right, but the best application is with fingers: warm it up with fingertips, work into your face like you're using a moisturizer. i get a nice, even, natural application that way.
i love the pump packaging and imo you get a decent amount of product for the money. my skin is oily, acne-prone and sensitive and i haven't had any problems with breakouts. i've tried bb creams from the face shop, skin79, etude house, nanoce et cetera and i keep going back to perfect cover. it works the best for me.
this is actually my 2nd BB cream after the SKIN FOOD mushroom multi-care BB cream.. but, i must say that i like the skin food one.. it doesn't end up as ashy as this one.. (FYI, i am asian and have the No.21)..
nonethless, if you have dry/combination skin like i do, you could use mosturizer that has a little bit oily texture but not too oily (in case it may fade easily!) am i gonna repurchase this? yes :)
I got this in No21, for my NC20-25 skin. Really enjoys this BB cream, think this along with my Skin79 pink label are 2 of my favourite Bb creams for its coverage and consistency. Its capable of covering small blemishes like redness and evens out the skin tone really really nicely. But it doesn't cover under eye much, but then its the same with all foundations/BB cream.
The SPF is great for the Australian sun, but doesn't photograph well since its sooo high, but still likes this very much. I bought it on ebay from a korean seller which including shipping only costed $15-20USD and took about 3 weeks to arrive, which I think is a great deal despite how long it took.
Overall will be re-purchasing again, I think I prefer this for every day wear, prefer this a lot more than some of my foundations.
