I tried the MAC BB Cream in hopes of finding a shade that better matched/complimented my skin than the MISSHA I've been using for over a year. This was my first MAC purchase, so I don't know what my regular MAC shade would be. The consultant chose Light Plus for me, and indeed this is a better color for me than a mix of MISSHA 21 & 23.

Although I am happy with the color, this doesn't provide the coverage I've been accustomed to with the thicker MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream. Also, I've been having little whiteheads all over with this product. I'm thinking of exchanging it for a non BB foundation. Even with a generous application of powder on top, I'm just not getting the even/polished look I prefer.
