Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream

Coverage: Light to thick coverage. Definitely buildable. That's one thing I love about this product.

Texture: almost like liquid foundation but creamier.

Shade: Light Beige (they also have a darker color, forgot what it is called)

Fragrance: I like the smell. It smells sorta like any other lotion sort of smell. It eventually fades though, but I like it.

Oil-Control: Seems like its oil free. I dont get oily at all at the end of the day. It actually CONTROLS my oil =D.

Dewy or Matte (finish): Dewy at first, then slowly fades to matte.

Overall comments: I am in LOOOOVEEE with this BB Cream. It is my first one and definitely the last. It has SUCH good coverage because it is buildable AND i've noticed my scars are DEFINITELY DEFINITELY fading away slowly. I just love this product. Highly recommend. AND I only bought it for 20 shipped on ebay. Not only that, it also has an SPF of 42. Definitely awesome. Coverage lasts for whole day basically.

Skin type: Oily

Skin tone: Light

Skin undertone: Olive

Skincare Regime: Wash face, moisturize, primer, bb cream.

I know, I love it! I used a sample for awhile. Most complain about the smell but it smells good!

I bought the 30ml one for about $13 shipped on ebay, too. Waiting impatiently for it to arrive!

I wish someone would list the oil-free b.b. creams somewhere, if there is one, can someone let me know?

[Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream]

Coverage: Medium to Heavy. Buildable

Texture: Similar to liquid foundation and thicker than your average bb cream but it's not extremely heavy on your face

Shade: Revlon Colorstay in Buff and Skinfood Aloe Sun in shade 1

Fragrance: It's scented, but not something that's extremely strong. Fades after a while and probably resembles something floral

Oil-Control: Good oil control

Dewy or Matte (finish): More matte than dewy

Overall comments: Like this! I bought this when it was on sale in Incheon Airport (woot duty free shopping) at $11 for 50ml (the one with the pump) and I'm glad for the price. It's a bit lighter and more yellow toned than my Aloe Sun so it's not a perfect color match. The coverage is amazing. With light concealer and the skinfood one, my scars are still visible, but after I repeat the same process with Perfect Cover, I dab it bit more over the scars and they disappear! The only MAJOR issue I have for this is that it's not so good for dehydrated or dry skin. It clings to my flakey skin and I look terrible outdoors despite blending like crazy. The pump is super sanitary but it does tend to dispense a bit too much.

Skin type: Combination skin - feeling dry lately

Skin tone: light (I used no. 21 light beige)

Skin undertone: yellow

Skincare Regime: cetaphil cleanser, neutrogena toner, nivea soft moisturizer

Can anyone recommend me a bb cream that has really good oil control? Before I given up on bbcream, but now since summer is coming I wanted to try it again. I'm yellow toned and my shade in Revlon's Colorstay foundation is sand beige. Sorrry, I know people usually post their Mac foundation shade, but I don't use mac foundation so I wouldn't know what shade I am.

[skin79 Prestige Diamond BB Cream]

Coverage: Sheer

Texture: Creamy

Shade: I use light and fairly light for BareMinerals...i'm pretty light with a pinkish undertone more than yellow

Fragrance: Scented - not sure what it smells like but it smells nice. Light and not too overpowering.

Oil-Control: Good. I have combo skin and it kept my cheeks nice and matte all day long (maybe a little too matte...my cheeks were kinda dry actually) however, my nose (it's always oily...distugsting -__-) i had to use some oil blotters half way throughout the day.

Dewy or Matte (finish): Matte (kind of dry if you have dry skin)

Overall comments: I love this BB cream! It's my first BB cream and it's great! I loved the coverage because i didn't want anything too thick. I don't have problem skin, i just wanted something to even out my natural skin tone and give me that natural, no-makeup look. It's like a tinted moisturizer and it's not oily at all. Although i found it a bit drying for my cheeks (as i've said, my face is really weird; my cheeks are pretty dry while my forehead and nose are oily) - maybe it's the cold weather? But i'm not complaining. It smells nice and here's the best part - it made my skin appear absolutely PORELESS! For as long as i can remember, large poes bothered me. This BB cream made my skin look poreless and porcelain. I love it! <3 Oh and the packaging is nice too...very pretty pink pump bottle.

Skin type: Combo

Skin tone: BareMinerals Foundation Light/Fairly Light

Skin undertone: Pink/yellow

Skincare Regime: Day: proactiv 3-step system, clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel

Night: L'essence D'eau exfoliating scrub, proactiv toner & repairing lotion, clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel

Missha Perfect Cover in shade #23 sounds good... it's the darker shade. It's oil free and has good sebum control.

I want to try the Skinfood aloe as well, because I heard it has good sebum control. It will be my next one.

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream

Oil-Control:: It does VERY LITTLE to control the oil on your face

Overall comments :

I really like this bb cream except for the oil control. I wish the product had more oil control so that my checks wouldn't look so oily. But its a great product if you have dry skin and offers SPF 42 (the highest I've ever seen). I wouldn't recommend this to people that have oily skin nor would I use this product in the summer time.

Skincare Regime: SANA cream, bb cream

[Missha Perfect Cover BB cream]

Coverage: Buildable

Texture: Creamy, but thick.

Shade: I use #21 Bright Beige

Fragrance: Scented - not sure what it smells like but it smells nice. Light and not too overpowering. I like this smell.

Oil-Control: I have oily/normal skin and it doesnt seem any oilier than normal when I apply this. In fact, it sort of better!

Dewy or Matte (finish): Matte and smooth

Overall comments: I love this BB cream! It's my first BB cream and it's great! I loved the coverage because i didn't want anything too thick. I wanted something to replace my foundation and this is it :) I'm a teenager, so naturally I have a few breakouts. This drastically reduces the look of them. I also have little freckles which also are reduced! My skin is brighter and more luminious after I apply this. I have to say I really like it! You can see other comments I've made on this on my blog {link in sig~}

Skin type: Oily

Skin tone: NC15-20 (pale)

Skin undertone: Yellow/Neutral, mixed.

Skincare Regime: Wash morning and night with Cetaphil, exfoliate a few times a week and use random homemade masks every so often. I moisturise with bio-oil.

Some BB Creams are on the thicker side like BRTC and Dr. Jart. There are others that are not too thick nor too thin like Lioele. While some are much thinner than usual such as Missha and Dr. G. It depends on which brand and type of BB creams you purchase. From my experience, the thicker the consistency the better the coverage.

[bB Cream Brand & Name] Dr. Jart Black Label

Coverage: Medium/Buildable

Texture: It's thick and very creamy

Shade: Dr. Jart is one of the darker BB Creams, but it still has a slightly pink undertone.

Fragrance: Didn't notice anything, actually.

Oil-Control: Normal? Nothing outstanding but nothing bad, either.

Dewy or Matte (finish): Matte.

Overall comments: I really like this. Since the color is still a tiny bit too light/ashy for me, I mix a tiny dab of a darker/yellower liquid foundation in. It makes the perfect color.

Skin type: Combo, prone to a couple pimples around the hairline during that time of the month.

Skin tone: NC 30-35

Skin undertone: Yellow

Skincare Regime: Missha strawberry foam cleanser in the morning and St. Ives Apricot cleanser at night. I use Olay Anti-Age Renewal cream at night.

I have my skinfood bb cream and the texture is so thick.. it's really hard to spread. it's still a bit runny but thick. I think it kind of sucks cause I rather my makeup feel light on my skin, not pore clogging. also the coverage is sheer to medium for it's consistency which is a con for me. however at the end of the day, my skin is glowing! my t-zone gets really oily though.

I think the consistency is a turn off because my diorskin nude foundation has medium to full coverage while feeling lightweight and amazing on my skin.

Ahh I see, I was thinking about Lioele or Missha brand so thats good that they aren't TOO thick!

>.< Does it look like "cakey"? Do you know what I mean? I don't want it to be SO thick

that it looks TOO cakey.
