Review&Demo: Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

Guess what?? Another review on BB Cream! I thought March was the 'BB Cream' month, since I have done so many posts about it. Well, apparently not. To be honest with you guys, this is the last BB Cream I have on my collection, and I am not planning on buying a new one until I finish them. But of course this is not a permanent plan! You know me.. If there's something good out there, or something you recommend to me, I could not control myself not to buy it! Haha.

So today's review is for the infamous Korean BB Cream called Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++, I bought this BB Cream because it is (probably) the only BB Cream that can heal blemishes. I bought this BB Cream last year along with Lioele Triple the Solutions BB Cream, and I like the Lioele better because it has more coverage than Missha does. However, Missha delivers more great benefits than Lioele, so I like to switch it back and forth.

One of the benefits that Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream and other Asian BB Creams give is the whitening agent. Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream can lighten your skin tone in order to make wrinkles and blemishes look invisible. This is what I really need for my skin problem. I know I mentioned this a million times, but I have acne scars (it is like red marks that are caused by previous acne, so if you have any tips on how to get rid of them, I will appreciate if you can share with me), and the way to get rid of them is to lighten your skin so that these red marks become more and more invisible, almost like freckles. So, I am really happy that Missha can help me to lighten them up while I have makeup on.

Another great benefit of this is it can prevent skin aging through anti-wrinkle properties. Even though I do not have wrinkles yet, prevention is the key! Also, it has high SPF and PA, which will protect your skin from the UV rays or sun damage.

Now lets talk about the coverage... Like I said before, compared with Lioele Triple the Solutions' coverage, Lioele wins. However, Missha also gives a great amount of coverage, and really a little bit goes a long way. Lioele has thicker texture, whereas Missha has lighter texture but it is not too light either. What I am trying to say is Missha gives a decent amount of coverage in one pump, but usually I use two pumps, while I only use one pump for Lioele. As you can see in the picture below, you still can see my acne scars on my cheeks after one layer, but overall I am really happy for its coverage. Even sometimes when I am lazy, I just use one layer and then apply powder to set it, then I am good to go. You can definitely build the coverage, but I see the more you add product, the more cakey you look. Pretty and Cute's site says that you need to wait at least five minutes before you layer more product in order for it to set in.

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream comes in four shades: No. 21 Bright Beige, No. 23 Natural Beige, No. 27 Honey Beige, and No. 31 Golden Beige. No. 27 and 31 are fairly new shades, and I think Missha has the most variety of shades of all Asian BB Creams. I am using No. 23 Natural Beige, and I am NC 20 in MAC foundation for your reference. I am really fair with yellow undertones and No. 23 matches my skin tone perfectly. Also, the shade has a grey tint to it, Skin79 is more grey, whereas Lioele is more yellow, and Missha is kinda in the middle. Again, like other Asian BB Creams, you might look grey when the first you apply it, but it will oxidize to match your skin tone. So don't freak out! :)

Last thing I want to mention is I do not know if Missha BB Cream broke me out. All of sudden my face broke out here and there after I was using this - some on my forehead, my cheeks and my chin. I really do not want to say that this BB Cream is the reason I broke out because I am really not sure. Probably it is because my diet too, I eat so much sugars these days, I am just not eating right :( do you know eating too much sugars can cause acne? I am going to keep using this BB Cream and if I was still breaking out, then probably I might have to stop using it. I am gonna be really sad if this really causes me breakout because I really like it. It is supposed to heal your blemishes too, so how is it possible to give me more blemishes? :( Fingers crossed this BB Cream won't break me out or hopefully I am not allergic to its ingredients!

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream is packaged the same way as Lioele. It is housed in a plastic tube and comes with a pump. I like how it pumps out because it can keep the product more sanitized, but since I have this almost a year, the lid for the pump keeps falling off. It still fits but I think it loosens up. Also, it smells really really good!

Overall, I love love love this BB Cream as much as I love Lioele. I barely use my regular foundation and keep switching these two products. I just need a little bit of concealers to cover my imperfections that are still showing up after I apply Missha or Lioele BB Creams.

Where to buy: Pretty and Cute, $28.50 for 50 ml.

  1. it might how broke you out because it has mineral oil in it! thats why i can never try it : /

    1. Oh really?? OMG Thanks for letting me know! Does Lioele Triple the Solutions also have mineral oil?

  2. Hello, I think the Missha bb cream is breaking me out too! :( I didn't want to believe it, so I continued the use with it and every time I used it, I would have a few new pimples...not helping with my acne scars too! Does the Lioele bb cream give you any new pimples? :)

  3. Please have a review of Etude House's Sun BB Cream! :)

  4. Hi i really enjoyed your review! i have really acne prone skin and so i was quite cautious before trying the missha honey biege bb cream, but i tried it and have been using it for half a year and it's working fantastic with my skin, it hasn't made me break out once! and you look so pretty in your picture! very pretty eyes! i really want to try the liole bb cream though after reading your review, do you know if it comes in any other shades?

    1. Glad you like the BB Cream! So far I don't think Lioele comes with another shade. But it matches my skin tone pretty good!
