I use this with my Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in #21. Underneath the BB cream, it helps bring out more of a glow - but it's not shimmery at all, it's more like... it makes your skin look naturally healthy, instead of the makeup-y look that some products leave. It helps me look more like I don't have makeup on!

It does help my Missha BB last all day long (I've worn it for 10-12 hours straight before and no issues!!!!).

This is NOT what I would call a traditional primer, because it's not something that was made to fill in your pores or even out the surface of your skin or anything. It's just to boost the BB cream you apply over it. I wouldn't want it to fill in my pores anyway, because you don't want to create a barrier on your skin with an Asian BB cream - they are not just makeup, but also skin products, so you want them to be in contact with your skin to help improve it. So this Missha BB Boomer is nice overall. I'd like to see the price a teensy bit lower, but I think I'd repurchase again. Maybe I'll see what it's like to go without it for a while first, though. Not something I'd consider as an "I-need-this-or-else" product right now.

I really like this primer. It is not like base/primers that fill in pores but instead gives the finish or BB creams and foundation a pearlesent luminous glow. I have used this as a base and have mixed it with foundation or bb cream and both applications work wonderful. As a base I think you it gives the radiance, but mixed with the thicker formula foundations/bb creams makes application smoother and more pliable and still a radient finish. This bb boomer creams also will slightly lighten the foundation/bb cream if it tends to oxidize dark/or warms so sometimes I will mix it so that I don't get such and orangy cast and doesn't make heavy foundations look so cakey or thick appearing. The smell is not obnoxious kind of very light powdery scent that I could do without but it not annoying like Missha's Perfect Cover which I really can't stand as far as the scent being on my face. I would like to find something cheaper but pleased none the less.

This is a nice BB cream primer when used with Missha BB Cream. It truly does help the BB cream stay on longer. The pearlescent sheen to this really does brighten the face. It is even nice to wear by it's self.
The primer smells nice and glides onto the skin smoothly. Give it time to set before you apply your BB cream or your foundation.
Even with the primer on my skin still has a tendency to become oily in the T-zone after a couple of hours. If you have dry skin, I imagine it will work extremely well. Oily skin may require a little mattifying spray. With that said, I still wear it everyday because it does make my skin feel so good and no break outs!

I use bb cream every single day I am out of the house. I used to use this everyday with the missha perfect cover bb cream (red tube). I switched brands because I get bored and with so many bb creams out there, I have to try as many as I can. I like that it actually works. It creates a sheen that enchances the finished bb cream look, after you apply the final bb cream. The cream is a very natural shimmer/sheen, I noticed that when I use this, it makes my face brighter than if I were to use only bb cream alone. I feel I don't need to look that radiant everyday, so I don't use it everyday anymore. I still keep it around though, in case I feel like looking a little more radiant.

First off, I have to correct the misconception that many reviewers have had that this is a primer. It is not. There is no direct translation for what this is but its basically a highlighter/base to make your bb cream look more dewy/glowy. If there's a Western product with the same function as this, I'd say its the MAC strobe cream. Although on the box it promises to make bb cream adhere longer, that's certainly not its primary function. So girls, don't purchase this expecting it to function like a primer! You will be disappointed!

That being said, I use this as they recommended under my bb cream (I'm using Missha Perfect Cover, check out my review!) and it does give a good dewy glow. I felt that the Missha Perfect Cover doesn't give enough of the glow that I expect bb creams to give but this boomer corrects that wonderfully. It makes you look wonderfully refreshed, like you just woke up from a sleeping beauty-esque sleep :D

It worked perfectly well with the Missha watery BB cream, it made the watery BB stay on my face for the whole day... without shine... but dried out my face with the perfect cover, and somehow turned my face into a shiny mess with the BB balm pact... hey, everyone has to find their perfect combination of products before they find the ones that work, right?

It's a bit steep pricing for a primer but if you use BB cream this stuff is awesome. My bb cream just glides on my face nicely and it just works well. You only need a little for a little goes a long way with this product. I don't know if I would repurchase it because I prefer a better primer that is more suitable to my oily face, this stuff doesn't really mattify.

I LOVE MISSHA M BB Boomer! O.K., I have qualifications. I love it when I use it under Korean BB creams, which is how it is meant to be used and how I get the best results. I LIKE it under Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour primer but find I actually get better results with Tarte if I use Make up Forever HD Primer in Neutral but that is another review which I will be getting to shortly.

So, I saw all the hype about Korean BB creams and wanted to try them. I used to live in California so it was easier for me to both find friends (Filipina mostly) for recommendations on products (for my very fair skin, NC 10 or so, and dry) and authentic dealers. I also used online advice forums.

I was advised to try MISSHA M BB Boomer as a primer and MISSHA Perfect Cover in #13 (another review later) and Skin79 Super Plus Triple Functions BB (Orange) with SPF 50 +.

First MISSHA M BB Boomer alone. I tried using this item alone after freshly washing my face with a mild facial cleanser and patting dry. The result was not bad. It filled in my pores (WOW) which are not REALLY big but only somewhat noticeable on my cheeks near the nose. It actually blurred imperfections and evened out a little bit of my freckles. And it took very little product to do so. And the shine was sort of opalescent, even in artificial light, not overwhelming.

But I was tugging on my face to apply (remember dry skin). However; it is recommended that, if you have dry skin, one uses a moisturizer under it.

So, I next washed my face, patted dry and applied my usual L'Oreal Golden Balm (just a little) to my damp face then applied this product over it. No more tugging and the product looked even more fabulous leaving my skin looking absolutely flawless after application in a sort of natural, no makeup way. No fine lines or wrinkles, pores filled in, nose actually rather mattifed and I could just apply a neutral lip colour and light brushing of blush and mascara and I was good to go for a natural look as long as I was not going outside.

Of course, this does not give complete perfection or sun protection. For that you need to add a BB cream over it. I tried Tarte BB tinted treatment 12-hour primer in fair. It was a little difficult to apply as it seemed to "spackle" over this primer, unlike MUFE HD (which the Tarte just glides over like silk). However, it did go on smoothly if you dotted small amounts on over different areas of your face, neck and upper chest (yes I do all that) and then pat to perfection with no real rubbing. Even with a magnifying mirror this comes out, in one application only to absolutely flawless perfection, hiding all freckles and minor imperfections, discolourations (including under eye circles) and skin appears poreless. I then apply a light brush of blush and whatever lip colour and eye makeup that I want and I am ready to go.

I now have SPF, fairly matte coverage that is flawless and lasts for a good 12 hours without even a touch up (incredible) and I do not see any fine lines or wrinkles.

Back to my comment about LOVING this when used as it was meant to be used, as a primer for Korean BB creams. I used it with the Skin79 Triple Functions Plus (Orange) SPF 50 + (well, it just arrived before the MISSHA Perfect) and the results just blew me away! Wash, pat on small amount L'Oreal Golden Balm on damp skin then MISSHA M BB Boomer. Give about a minute to sink in while you put on eye primer and find something else to do.

Now, using just a pump of the Skin79, I dot it on each cheek and on my forehead. It blends seamlessly with no tugging over this primer and gives outstanding results. Absolutely flawles, poreless, airbrushed type results. Without the MISSHA under the Skin79, it is o.k. With the MISSHA as a primer, THAT is where absolutely poreless, smooth as a baby's butt skin comes in. Lasting power is 12 hours + even without a touch up unless I am doing something really active and sweating or have been out in the rain (did both). Even then I just have to pat on a little spot treatment of the Skin79.

Overall, for anyone using authentic Korean BB creams (which are top of the line for skin perfection) this is the perfect primer and I highly recommend it for same.
