Umm, too pink and contains parabens. The coverages is pretty good, so good i almost believe it's a foundation. Feels kind of heavy on my skin, and i had minor breakouts. I may consider finding another BB cream.

This product has surprisingly high coverage, so if you're looking for a product that will cancel discolouration and cover pimples, all while feeling not to heavy on your skin, this is the one! However, it does have a very pink undertone and is definitely on the dewy side. This BB cream is fairly long lasting, although towards the end of the day I have found the redness of my breakouts peaking through and surrounded by a layer of oil. My biggest concern with this product is that there are way too few shades! I am very pale yet the darkest shade is still slightly light for me. Overall, I looooveee the coverage of this product and would recommend it!

Power perfection BB cream has all the typical problems of Korean BB creams - pink undertone (though not as bad as Missha), too dewy and expensive. I bought a small tube on a whim, tried it out a couple times, aghast that I looked like a shiny mess throughout the day despite my very dry middle age skin, and tossed it into my makeup dump pile. I recently find a good use for it, though. I mix a small dab of the PP BB cream with a flat, yellow tone foundation such as Revlon Colorstay. Voila, now I have dewy, hydrating foundation matching my neutral to yellow undertone. I raised my rating now because I found yet another good use for it. Since it's highly pigmented and emollient, I use it as an under-eye concealer. The light ashy pink color which otherwise would have been too pale brightens my under-eye area.

It has a pink undertone :( Very long lasting actually, lasts all day. But it oxidizes on me.Full Coverage. Thick consistensy. A little goes a long way, be careful while you applying it, it may look like a mask.i hate how it settles in creases and accentuates dry patches. Won't repurchase

Flashback alert! This is fine for day use but avoid situations where you will be photographed with a flash, because... Shiny ghost. I'm putting this down to it being a heavy feeling cream with a high SPF that really does feel like coloured sunscreen rather than a lightweight tinted moisturiser. I guess it's down to personal preference whether that's a pro or con but I have a lot of discolouration so not one to shy away from weighty coverage. I don't find I need a whole pump to cover my face though, and less is more. A thick and full coverage cream that dries very fast, so blend in quickly. I think it works best with fingers because sponge can be too slow and brushes can leave stroke lines. It can dry a bit streaky, but if this happens just pop on a bit of moisturiser over the top to get it workable again without sacrificing much coverage. Same fix if it settles into dry patches, which it will within minutes if I have any flakiness. I don't usually add moisturiser atop Base products but it works well with this formula; I've also layered foundation and powders with it successfully. Because of this the finish is more satin for me, but without the 'moisturiser melt' it is a bit more velvety. Longevity is about 6 hours in an outside humid climate and up to 9 sitting in an air conditioned office. After this it gets patchy. I wouldn't say it's waterproof because it goes blotchy immediately if I'm working up a sweat or playing sports, but I still use a makeup remover or oil to dissolve it before cleansing, as water alone isn't enough. I have shade 2 which should perfectly match MUFE HD 120 or NC/NW20 skin as it's fairly neutral without being grey, but I'm NC25-30 at the moment and it does look a bit washed out if I use the full pump and don't add some bronzer or powder to balance it. It doesn't oxidise on me but some people say it matches darker skin tones after its mixed with facial oils after a while, but not in my experience.All up, it's a fine BB cream thanks to the coverage and wear time, but I have to deduct points for flashback, application issues (especially for dry skin), and the lack of shade options which mean a slight mismatch for me.

My HG! I've used this for more than two years now, tried countless others and still find myself reaching for this everyday over my foundations. I have mediocre skin with some pimple scars but when I put this on it makes my face look healthy and 'glowy' :) love it!It has a light texture yet provides medium-full coverage on its own. I find that with this, a little goes a long way - I use just about a pea size amount and build it up in thin strokes before blending everything out + setting powder. If you put on too much you may end up looking pasty! I barely have to use concealer (unless for really stubborn pimple scars) and it lasts all day. Doesn't break me out which is a huge plus!Minus one lippie for average oil control..setting powder can only help so much and my T-zone is usually shiny by mid day. I find that when I use Benefit's Porefessional underneath it kinda helps a little bit. Love the pump packaging for hygiene purposes! Although it's hard to tell when you're about to run out but I definitely prefer this over tubes. I believe it's about AUD$50 in TFS stores but eBay's got quite a good heap of these with reasonable prices.I'm Asian, NC30-35 in Mac, has prominent yellow undertones and I use the shade 02 Natural Beige. It goes on lighter initially but blends well into my skin colour after a few minutes :)

I have a very pale complexion and dry, redness prone skin. I have been using a full coverage foundation (Revlon Colorstay) layered over sunscreen (Benefit Dream Screen), and a neutralizing primer (BareMinerals Prime Time) to cover my redness. Needless to say, I needed to simplify my routine. I've been attracted to the idea of BB creams ever since they gained attention in the US, but I've read enough bad reviews and seen how most US formulas tend to be either orange in tone, or have little to no coverage. Then I started researching the Korean brands, but they were all so hard to find in stores, and I hated the idea of wasting $20 buying one on Ebay only to hate it. When I found out that The Face Shop has a location only 10 minutes from me, I had to try it. It feels amazing on my skin, matches my skin tone PERFECTLY, and covers my redness even better than my prior routine. When it first goes on, it feels a little greasy and I worried that it would leave my skin too dewy, but once it settles, it has only a slightly dewy finish. I set my nose, forehead, and chin with NYX HD Finishing Powder and I'm done. My skin is glowing and just enough pink shines through in my cheeks. Wish I had found this product years ago!In store, I paid $20 for the small size, and the large size was listed at $39. I like the pump packaging for hygiene, but it does take a couple of pumps each time to get the product to dispense. Not a big issue. For the price, I am so happy with the product. I will definitely be tossing my foundation and sticking with this BB cream.

I absoutely love this! Before I got this i was using the foundation Make up forever hd which is a great foundation the downside it that it waa $50 and no spf, with this product i got it for like $20 ~ because it was $25 plus 25% off and it has spf 37. this foundation isnt heavy, its light and radiant just like what the packaging describes. I am probably not going back to my previous foundation

Fantastic BB Cream , gives great (but light feeling) coverage. I do find the price a bit steep in comparison to how affordable most of their products are , however all in all it's worth the buy if you want to spend. Also, the fact it has an SPF higher than 15 is a huge bonus!

If your having troubles with an oily, patchy face at the end of the day I highly recommend this BB cream! I don't think I have ever had to touch up on powder or concealer when im wearing this BB cream because of the thick like consistantsy, but don't feel turned off by the coverage. You can have a light, low coverage layer if you blend it out well or you can build it up for a higher, denser coverage. It gives such a natural look and ticks all my boxes when im looking for a foundation but a bonus as its a BB cream and is a lot nicer for all skin types! Buying it from the shop is quit expensive but I buy it online on ebay from Korea and I have saved some bucks to which I can buy more! Love, love, love and recommend for everyone!
