Ladies and Gentlebeasts
Those of you who’ve read my blog a lot know that I’ve been on a bit of an Etude House rut. I got bored oneday and started watching videos on YouTube about B.B creams. I saw so many rave reviews about his Missha B.B cream that I figured: I live in Korea. I might as well utilize that fact and start exploring brands other than Etude House. It was hard for me to do so without feeling like a bit of a traitor, but here goes:
I picked up number 21. Actually the lady at the Missha counter just picked it out for me, and as far as I know, it’s the lightest shade in the range. No surprise at all 🙂
On the iridescent red tube they printed the following: SPF 42/ PA +++
“Missha Perfect Cover B.B cream offers a novel skin are concept with B.B cream, which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkled and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability, and prevents skin aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties.”
All the usual redundant blah blah 😉 firstly I doubt whether anything can make me any lighter since I’m already Snow-White-before-her-resurrecting-kiss-white. (Yes, corpse white is the colour.) I think the SPF 42 is cute. 🙂 because we all know once SPF is more than 30 it’s really just for marketing. They threw in an extra 2 after the big 40. Love it!
Here’s what it looks like firstly:
As you can see it has quite a grey colour to it. Most Korean B.B creams are, but they oxidize and adapt to the colour of ones skin.
Here’s a semi blended out swatch:
I can tell you, the rave about this product is all worth it. I don’t have a single complaint about this product. The coverage is good. It makes my skin look flawless. (Besides the bug bite on my forehead, but we can’t expect miracles) I have to say though: if you’re someone with large acne scars or stretched pores, you’ll need to conceal a bit before using this. It’s definitely not a full coverage kind of foundation. It’s actually more like a great tinted moisturizer with healing properties and sun screen. If you’re someone who is into light coverage, then this is definitely something I would recommend.
I don’t always come on to WordPress, but when I do eye brows. I know they’re way too much, but I didn’t want to do my whole face again and I wanted to experiment with a different colour for the brows.
Have a great weekend, lovelies.
I’m going to do a battle of the B.B creams soon, so if you have any particular one that you’d like to see reviewed (granted that it’s Korean) please let me know.
