It's never too late to jump on the BB cream wagon. BB is all over the place, I don't think I need to tell you the story. This is the real stuff from Asia, it's the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++. It's my first BB cream ever and here's my review on it.
I use mineral foundation most of time and it's perfect for my oily skin, yet sometimes I like to see if the grass is greener on the the other side. Usually it's not. That would be the case this time too, sadly.
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream is said to do all kinds of great things for your skin. I got mine to use as a foundation, I don't really care about the other aspects. I like that it has a high SPF, it helps my pale skin to stay pale and wrinkle-free in the future too. How are the abilities as a foundation then?
It's really easy to apply, let's start with that. I apply it with my fingers and it works. This BB cream is quite thick, so a little dab goes a long way. It covers really well! I can skip concealer if I want to, the coverage is really great! It feels a bit heavier than a regular foundation on my skin. I have super oily skin and I must say that this is too moisturising for my skin type. It starts to look messy about after an hour I've put it on, even if I powdered my face. Despite that I still use it some days, it's so easy to apply.
I have the lightest shade #13 which is truly fair, it's a great match for me. I don't really like the scent, it has a slight SPF scent to it too but mainly it smells something like an older lady would like. It doesn't linger on my face though, so I guess it's ok.
If i had normal or dry skin I think I would be madly in love with this cream. I suggest you try it. For me it was not what I expected so I wont't be giving up my mineral foundation just yet. I want to try next the Dr. Jart BB Cream because I hear it's great for oily skin but luckily I've had some trouble with my eBay registration so I can't get my hands on it right now. I'm saving a lot of money :)
