This is the only BB cream I've found with a shade that caters to darker skin! I use #31 and it blends in with my skin really well! It's helped with my skin a lot, I've stopped breaking out except for the occasional pimple and even seems to have helped even out my skin a bit over the past months. I also love how it's buildable, I can just slap on some primer and a thin layer of BB cream for everyday use just to hide my redness and give me that dewy look, or use more, for more coverage.
As a nc30/MUFE 32, color #27 works so well on me. I don't know how other nc30 girls were wearing #23! #27 isn't grey at all like #23 is.
I use a large flat foundation brush to apply over the BB Boomer. Lasts 10+ hours including great sun protection while skiing. I don't think that I'll be using this on a day to day basis as it feels pretty heavy on my face.
I am really in to this BB Cream. I love its coverage. I have oily skin, but this product really know hot to control oil. My skin does not look shiny after 8hours i use it. I am about NC20 and I use light beige #21, this shade is really match to my skintone. Love this product.
It didn't work out for me. I have oily combination skin and Acne prone. I was excited to try this out because this is my first BB Cream and the SA told me that it's Missha's best selling BB Cream, so I gave it a go! But after a few tries I stopped! It's really thick, it has a strong smell which I don't really like! It break me out! At first I thought it was just part of me being "teen", but when I decided to stop using it, my face stop having acne. I didn't finish my tube, not even 1/4!!
For reference I am about nc40 in winter and nc42 in summer. I have shade 31. I absolutely love this mostly because of the benefits it gives my skin! The packaging is very hygienic as it has a pump (the biggest size does). When I apply it I don't even need to use a full pump because a little really does go a long way. Know too that it may look too light at first but in about an hr it does oxidize to your skin tone. I find that it evens out my skin tone and for extra coverage I just use a little more bb cream where I need it (under the eyes, blemishes). For me, it doesn't clog my pores nor does it break me out. I always set my foundations/bbc cream and I feel this controls my oils longer than any other foundation I've used. Please be aware of the high SPF - do not use this for flash photography.I bought this bb cream on eBay and it was about the same as a Mac foundation ( in CAD) which is great because most Mac foundations break me out and I think they're a reasonable price. This is my go to everyday bb cream esp in the summer!
I have been using this product for over 2 weeks now. And I can't even tell you all the amazing things it has done for my skin. First of all, it doesn't break me out. Secondly, it has sheer to medium coverage - enough to cover my redness and hyperpigmentation. Third, after having used this for 2+ weeks, I can honestly say that my hyperpigmentation has almost completely faded away! I didn't wear this today for the first time since starting this product, and when i looked at my face in the mirror, i could see almost NO scars or hyperpigmentation! it was amazing!!
the only thing i don't like about this product is the color. i'm nc30 and i bought the #23 color. it's too pinkish for my yellow/olive chines skin tone. :(
I picked up a 20mL tube of No 23 when I was in Korea. I have combination skin, oily but mad dry during the winter.
It doesn't do a fantastic job of oil control. Because my skin is so dry during the winter, I have to moisturize like crazy prior to application, and even then it's hard to apply/blend. I didn't have this problem during the fall when my skin was less dry.
This BB Cream actually only comes in two different shades. I recommend 23 for most everyone, because the other one is very very pale and would not work for most people.
Coverage is alright. I have acne scarring and large pores; the larger acne scars and pores don't get covered very well. Also coverage doesn't last all day.
I really wanted this one to work because the lady at the MISSHA store said it was the most popular one.
So far I really like this. I got this on Ebay for about $15 in the color 13, Bright Beige. For reference, I am so pale that I recently got mistaken for a Cullen. I meant, we no longer need bedside lamps because I glow in the dark. I MEANT NW15 or thereabouts. I have started to realize in the last year that many of the foundations I *thought* matched actually oxidize after a bit, thus becoming too dark. I have a mirror in my new house that's like an anti-magic-mirror. It shows EVERY flaw, etc. And so I've become kind of obsessed with finding something that *really* matches --- not just when I put it on but 30 minutes or 3 hours later, too.
This is actually a little bit lighter than my skin. It blends great though and doesn't oxidize. It also photographs GREAT, even with flash. We travel a lot and take a lot of photos and because I'm SO pale even things without sunscreen or whatnot tend to give that ghostly effect whenever flash is used. Nightmare! End up having to throw out almost all my pictures with flash because of this. This doesn't do that. When I saw how high the SPF was AND realized that it's even a bit paler than me I was like "Ruh Roh". Because I think in my head like Scooby Doo, you know, as you do. But this photographs beautifully.
I like how this looks, too. It's not too yellow, for one thing. And I just like the finish it gives. A minor-ish quibble is that I don't feel it controls oil quite as well as what I was using before but it's not like I get oily from it, just a tiny bit shinier than I did with my previous foundation. (Note: I have myself listed as oily, and that IS true. But I've actually been taking a really high dose of pantothenic acid and my skin is WAY less oily than it used to be in consequence). I will say, it is STRONGLY fragranced. The fragrance does disappear quickly, but it is the most strongly fragranced foundation I have *ever* tried. Like times 10. If the fragrance or anything else starts breaking me out, I will revise. Because it seems like everything I find anything I like THIS much (I'm looking at you Undercover Secret Agent!!!) it ends up breaking me out. continued >>
Nothing I have ever tried has made my skin look so perfect. I am very pale and neutral and I use 13. It matches pretty nicely and covers well. I like the soft scent and with a setting spray, it lasts pretty much all day. I also love the package. There's not really anything that I don't like about this product other than the fact that it isn't easily accessible--as far as I know, you can only buy it online. I will definitely repurchase this as well as some of the other Missha BB creams.
I have super oily skin, large pores, discoloration and all that fun stuff.
I find that this has at least medium coverage when I use a semi fluffly blush brush to apply it. It covers everything about 80% which is great for bb creams.
It doesn't control oil very well, but I just use a matte powder on top and that helps.
I love how it makes my skin smooth and pale [I love me some pale skin]. It doesn't match my skintone, but in the winter I wear long sleeves and scarves so no one knows haha
There's usually really great sales on the missha us website so it's a great deal!
