Revisited: MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream

MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream 21 review swatches

I remember trying this MISSHA bb cream 6 years ago and thought it was an OK product, giving it 3/5 in my previous review. Back then, my skin was worse than it is now; a lot more oily, spotty and textured, hence, the bb cream wasn’t a favourite until now. Hooray for finding the perfect skincare routine and for ageing! So what happened? I was looking for a light feel, natural-looking coverage foundation with a high SPF for the Spring and Summer season and thought I would give this another shot as it had fit the bill from what I had remembered. I couldn’t decide between shade #21 and #23. It took me a day to decide from looking at online swatches to reading reviews, then ended up taking a risk with #21.

At first, it does apply quite light but then it oxidises a little bit over time which is perfect for me. Shade #23 would be perfect when I’m that little bit tanned! I always apply this with a dry beauty sponge (mhmmm, dry!), more specifically, Innisfree stamping puff and it gives me better coverage as compared to a brush. It doesn’t really cover my under eye circles or the odd stubborn spots but I’m not mad though. It is a medium coverage with a satin finish, also without the heavy look or feel. I still have to set it with a powder for that extra longevity and to satisfy my mind.

This is my go to base, even replacing my all time favourite Revlon Colourstay. Now that is a big statement for me due to having used Revlon since I was 17ish. Dayum 10 years or so now and haven’t shied away from it until now. This is definitely a game changer and will not be returning to my beloved Revlon.

If you have very oily skin, I wouldn’t recommend this for you as it does start to disappear over the day. However, if you have found your holy grail of a primer and setting powder then you can definitely make this work.

Have you ever revisited a product years later and now it’s become a HG product for you or is still/now a disappointment?

    It’s interesting to read about a product you’ve tried before and now am revisiting. I’ve never really used anything on my skin but I should probably start soon Haha

    This sounds like such an amazing product! And thankfully, I don’t have oily skin so I can actually try it 🙂

    I love bb cream, especially during the summer months when I don’t want any heavy makeup on. I’ve never used it as a primer though so I’ll have to try it out!

    I think this will really look good on my face. I gotta try this product, my face is oily and this will ease it.

    Never heard of the brand Missha but it has beautiful packaging.

    I like using BB cream because it’s so light and moisturizes my skin whilst protecting it from the sun. I don’t think I have ever returned to a product that I didn’t like in the past though. It does make sense to try it again if your skin changes.

  12. 14th December 2018 / 7:36 pm

    This sounds like amazing produxt. I should try this out soon.

    Great to find that suits you. So what do you think an oily skin can use?

    Who would’ve thought that ageing can be a blessing, right? I’m glad you find MISSHA bb cream works for your skin after trying it for the second time. I have oily skin, so this product probably won’t suit me. I might look into Innisfree stamping puff tho. It sounds like a great tool for better coverage.
