Please excuse my eyelid. I can’t wear any make up due to an eyelid irritation on both eyes so only applied from below the eye.
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream
Oil Control: ♥♥♥♥♥
Review: Bought this off eBay for around £6 and was shipped directly from South Korea. The price isn’t that bad as you pay double for one and a half more for the full size one (50ml). But this is great to test out the BB cream before you purchase a full size one.
The main criteria I look for in a BB cream and foundation is the coverage and oil control. The oil control is about average. Started to get oily after 3-4 hours. If I haven’t blotted, more oil will seep through in less than an hour. I have noticed that the when I blot, some of the BB cream transfers therefore not being long lasting. I’d say that the lasting power is average again. Lasts around 5 hours. If I wear it all day and remove the BB cream at night, I’ll only have traces of it left as my make up wipes would be mostly white.
It has a thick consistency. When you think thick, you think very good coverage, like semi full to full coverage. This gave a medium to semi full coverage which is what I like. Still didn’t really cover my dark under eye circle but I don’t mind using concealer. Covered the redness on my skin and the spots that are starting to come through. You have to be careful though as to how much you apply because of the consistency. Too much and it’ll look cakey. Didn’t apply as smooth as I liked but it was workable. I could feel how heavy this BB cream is on my skin. I can feel it sitting on my skin. Didn’t feel natural. When applied, it had a grey undertone to it which you probably can see on the after picture and made me look a bit washed out. I did notice that it had accentuate the dry areas of my skin so this is a big no no if you have dry skin! Stay away from it. Does have a perfumey scent which some people will dislike and may irritate those who have sensitive yet oily skin.
The positive points about this BB cream is the selection of shades and the SPF content. It comes in a selection of 3 shades, no. 13, 21 and 23. This may not sound a lot but other BB creams doesn’t have any. The BB cream will slightly oxidise to match your skin colour. It also has SPF 42 which is a plus. This 20ml packaging is travel size and won’t take up room in your bag. It’s also squeezes the BB cream out therefore hygienic and you can control the amount it squeezes out.
Overall, it is an ok product. Will probably try and use it more to see if I begin to like it more and more especially in this current beautiful weather.
Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?
