Jumped on the bandwagon yet again! I purchased based on soooo many youtubers raving about this product. I am 46 with pale, dry skin. My hopes were for this to even out my skintone (slight areas of hyperpigmentation) as well as providing a natural finish. I have yet to find anything that can provide a natural, dewey finish on my skin. This was no exception :(. The color is strange (#21). A light, yellowy grayish tone. I don't take issue with the color however. Somehow it works on my skin tone. What I do have a problem with is how thick and powdery it is! My first grade teacher in 1970 was the queen of "foundation/powder mask". This is what my skin looks lioke wearing Perfect Cover!!! I look like I've used about 5 pumps of the most heavy duty 70's Max Factor cake makeup on my face!!!! I use one pump of Missha and apply with either a beauty blender or my fingers. One of the appeals of a BB Cream is the high SPF...yeah, if I am using 1/2 of a pea sized amount I am getting very, very minimal sun protection!!! I won't toss this, but this doesn't live up to the hype AT ALL for somewhat older, drier skin. The search continues!
I got this as a gift for christmas. it scared me at first because it had a gray hue, but it oxidized in a few minutes and matched my skin tone. Good for when I want to look natural and don't want a full foundation coverage. I like how it has a pump, and the lotion-esq design. Won't repurchase because I'd rather have a bare face than a light coverage, but it's still a good product.
- decent shade selection
- good hygienic packaging
- don't like the way it feels on my skin. was hoping for a cream, but it feel like a rather thick/heavy foundation. This was my first bb cream, so i can't say if it was better or worse than other creams
- caused breakouts :-(
I had love hate relationship with this bb cream. Till i realized that i was getting a fake one, twice from ebay and different sellers, I tried this 4years ago, sample size and i loved it. So i decided to buy the full size. But the full size i bought made my skin itchy, like i wanna wash my face right away. The smell is too strong, and gave me small red bumps the next day. I rested my skin and tried few times but same thing happened. So i thew away and moved on to other bb creams. My hg bb cream was legere multi white for 4 yrs till they repackaged and maybe reformulated. I didnt get the same result anymore so i had to find another bb cream. I remembered that i liked this missha crm and good thing, there is a Missha store now in my country. So i bought the small size #21 and i liked it. Not strong smell, glowy skin, but think its too dark for me. I bought from ebay seller again, i dont know why i was that stupid and i got the same red bumps, strong smell and remembered my experience years back. So i went back to Missha store and bought #13 instead and fell in love with it. I was comparing the ones i bought from Missha store and the one i got from ebay. Confirmed, the one i got from ebay is a fake. So please, do yourself a favor and buy it from Missha store only. I had the best experience with the jars i bought from them. The people here who gave low ratings review mustve bought the fake ones. Buy from Missha store and try it why its still the most loved bb cream up to now. HG bb cream. NOTE: Fake Missha perfect cover has a very very strong smell, they causes red bumps or zits, sometimes make skin itchy.
I ordered this product online after seeing the hype it had on YouTube. I really liked this product. The packaging was very handy and hygienic and looked very luxurious compared to other BB creams I have used! I really liked the coverage this product gave me compared to the skin 79 bb cream ( the pink one) and liked that it had an SPF of 40! This also had products that seemed to help the overall appearance of your skin such as the whitening ingredients to help blemishes! When first putting this on it gave my face a grey sheen but once oxidised it was fine! I had to set this with powder because it was quite oily but it did not feel cakey on my face when I did this! Overall I liked this be cream and finished the full tube which is unusual for me because I am quite fussy and usually change my foundations and BB creams to find my ultimate HG product!
I bought this, tried it as just a "tinted moisturizer" did not work for me because of the color, I have #21 and #23 both are horrible colors for me but I tried to use them as a "base" under my foundation and I LOVE it! I put a light layer on and then pat it in with my finger tips, let it sit for a minute then apply my foundation, it makes it look beautiful, creamy, skin like. Use it everyday!
I bought Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream (No.13) in the 20ml. Travel Size for $13 ($9 + $4 shipping on Amazon). There are counterfeit versions of Missha that come from China. To be 100% sure that I was buying a real Missha BB cream, I bought it from a South Korean seller. It took 3 weeks to get to my house. I also got 2 free samples - Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream and the Signature Dramatic Base Boost.
My skin is acne/clogged pore prone, a little sensitive and on the dry side. I had a very bad reaction to a sunscreen last year that left me with horrible acne scarring all along my jaw line and a few spots on my cheeks. With pale skin the acne scarring left behind can be almost as bad as the actual acne that caused itÖ
APPLICATION & COVERAGE -
It seems like with BB Cream less is more. An amount the size of a large pea is ideal. I apply it with my fingers. It spread and blended well with very little streaking or unevenness. The coverage is light - med. I would say about 90% of the red marks from acne scarring, freckles and dark spots under my eyes were covered. I dabbed a little extra product on a few of the darker spots and most of them were then covered as well. Dark under-eye circles, active acne or recent scarring would need a bit of concealer under the BB cream to make them completely disappear. HOPEFULLY the claims of evening skin tone and reducing scarring is true. It will take a few months to know for sure (that would be wonderful).
COLOR (No. 13) -
Shade No. 13 is the lightest version of this BB cream and matches my skin tone perfectly. Iím very pale and most foundations are too dark or have an undertone that throws off the color, so itís pretty awesome to finally find a color that I do not have to correct with powder.
'Dewy' would be accurate. It gives you a natural glowing look. I donít hate it, but Iím not used to it either. Iíve always used foundations that give a matte result. I have dry skin and read that BB creamís are notorious for building up around dry areas. Itís very trueÖ I have to use moisturizer and do a light exfoliation before putting it on.
The 2nd time I used this I put on too much at once (2 or 3 peas) to see if I could get better coverage. It didnít work out so wellÖ My skin looked flawless for a few hours, but by the time I got home (about 6 hours later) the product had accumulated around lines and globbed together a bit. For the 1st time that I can remember, my face looked oilyÖ It wasnít horrible - I still got a lot of complement at the play group my son and I go to. Iím sure applying two thinner layers would be a better approach.
Skin Problems? -
I have been wearing this BB Cream for a whole week (4 separate times) and I have no active acne. As in none! I had been wearing Revlonís Colorstay for about 6 months. I knew that it made me break out - for me every foundation does to some extent. Some are worse than others. Missha seems to be the first foundation that has actually improved my skin - so far.
This was my first BB Cream and I love it! I donít see myself going back to a regular foundation any time soon. M Perfect Cover BB Cream (No.13) is the only foundation I have used that is an EXACT match for my skin tone AND it doesnít make me break out. I love that it has 42 SPF! Iíve had horrible luck with sunscreens so the 42 SPF is a huge plus. BB Creams are also a lot easier and faster to apply than applying liquid foundation with a sponge or brush (not counting additional SPF and powder). It looks more natural too. Pending my Missha Signature sample, Perfect Cover is my 1st HG foundation. I plan on buying the full size when my travel size bottle gets low (2 or 3 months?).
There are a few things that I donít like about this product. Waiting 3+ weeks for it to be shipped to my house is not wonderful. I would prefer it to have no fragrance. I normally avoid fragrance because you donít know what the hell cosmetic companies use to make the smell and it is a common irritant to sensitive skin. Besides, does your face need to smell like flowers? Anyways, itís not foul but it is strongÖ The smell doesnít really go away. Throughout the day I catch whiffs of it here and there. It annoys me a bit, but at least it smells good. Dry skin patches are an ongoing issue. At the same time thereís a tipping point where applying too much makes my skin look oily. BUT, If you get it just right it's perfect. I might need to find a powder to go on top this summer when the 'dewy' look might turn to oily mess on hot days. I wish this would have a little more coverage. With all of the horrible acne I had last year, and the scarring that followed I have gotten used to med-full coverage foundation. Missha does not give me any additional acne or clogged pores, so I think this problem will be a non-issue in a few more weeks. If it helps to heal scarring and evens out my skintone, I will make a Missha shrine in my closet and take all of that nit-picking back.
I am a super pale neutral skinned gal, with a sensitive, yet oily skin type. I decided to try BB creams before they became all the rage in this country, and so I ordered the MISSHA BB off of Ebay. I got color #21 which is the lightest I could find, and it works well on my skin tone.
The BB covers decently, but it is a bit too moist for my skin's taste. It takes a bit to soak in, and leaves me reaching for some pressed powder to blot up a bit of the excess oil.
It hasn't irritated my sensitive (eczema and psoriasis prone) skin yet, however it doesn't seem to be moist enough, oddly, in the driest spots.
Overall, I like the scent (quite flowery, but pretty) and the color, and I believe it's a great BB cream... I just don't know if I'm the BB cream kinda girl.
Love the packaging - pump dispenser and I love how this was the first by cream that did not exacerbate my acne or clogged my pores. I'm the super light pinkish Asian type so I was recommended no. 21 and it suited me perfectly and continued using it for a year. Now that a year has passed. I'm still loving everything about it except that I've noticed that I appear either as if I got even more white in photos, or the color no longer matches me and I'm more tan now. Not so sure but this is still a great product with great sales on the u.s. website.
This is my first review, so hopefully it isn't too bad. But if you just want it short: I absolutely love this product, and it is by far one of the most superior that I've tried.
I am an NC45 in MAC Studio Fix powder and #170 in MUFE HD (and I will likely never return to either of their foundations), and I use MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream in #27, Honey Beige. ---
Now, most would ask how that's even possible since CLEARLY #27 does not match NC45, and is at the most made for NC35/42. Simple: after applying the bb cream over my face, I use a very pigmented powder that matches/is close to my natural skintone. And...that's it. It's the best thing I've ever used in my life. HG. HG. HG. I am in love, even if it's only been for two months.
"Why not use #31, Golden Beige? It's darker." - The #31 has more red/pink undertones, whereas I have mostly yellow/golden undertones. It would look very strange with my skin color.
------ Coverage: Light to full; buildable; up to you.
If you're a girl who has some dark spots, or other pigmented scarring, or spots in general, from acne or anything else, that you're still trying to get rid of and heal - don't be so quick to believe those who say that this product is absolutely, without a doubt sheer/light coverage. At least it isn't the way I'm able to use it? Since from my perspective, it covers amazingly well! However, there are various perspectives on what constitutes "sheer" anyway, but I almost feel like "covers well" is an understatement, as this covers everything I need it to. Yet, it doesn't do this in an unnatural way. I have no need for concealer anymore. No supplementary creams, liquids, nothing. This really is a primer-foundation-concealer-moisturizer all in one. ^__^ The time it takes for me to do my makeup has been cut in half, which is a great thing if you're a college girl like me, or just want a simple, non-heavy look on some days. I can't even put into words how glad I am to have finally found a product that does what it promises (most of us have experienced the truth behind the lies of MU companies).
that I've noticed - my skin texture has improved, it's brightened my face, lightened some of the dark spots I have, I don't feel it on my face, lasts 10+ hours without needing a touch-up (does depend on weather and application though), and while I do not have acne-prone skin, I have noticed fewer, smaller breakouts :] Even though you don't notice it, can't forget about that awesome SPF 42! Also, one pump goes a very long way. For problem areas, maybe only 2 to 2.5 pumps. 3 pumps on bad days. I have so much product left even after two months of (mostly) daily use.
I've been searching for makeup that I could finally have on my skin, without feeling like I was going "one step forward and two steps backward" every day. You know? The thick foundations and concealers that feel like they're heavy and suffocating your skin all of the time, with absolutely no benefit to your skin other than a little SPF and full coverage. I'm trying to achieve that kind of "flawless", no-makeup skin (not a look - the real deal), and I honestly feel like MISSHA M's BB cream is going to help me get there sooner. I would recommend this product to everyone, the only cons being the cost and limited colors, though it's still a better color selection than the other true (true, as in, none of that drugstore faux BB-cream, tinted moisturizer junk) BB cream brands like Skin79 and Holika Holika. But for my HG, my love, I will definitely spare the $27 (I bought it on ebay, with fast and free shipping, but sometimes you can find it much cheaper). It has helped me so much, and I hope it does the same for others!
