Protects like a BB, covers like foundation
on July 5, 2013
This BB cream outshines others in a couple of categories. It comes in several shades (unlike other BB's which usually come in one grayish looking hue) and it covers pretty well. I use shade No.27 on both myself and on my mom and it looks great on both of us (for reference I'm a MAC NC37 and she's NC42). I've used many different brands of BB creams and this one has by far the best coverage. It's close to what you might get from a medium coverage foundation and it's buildable. You can add another layer while still maintaining that fresh light, no makeup feel that BB creams are so famous for.
I can use it straight out of the tube (it's a good color match), but I tend to mix it with another brand of BB cream. The reason I have to mix/dilute it, is because it contains mineral oil. Mineral oil breaks me out like nobody's business and makes my already oily skin even slicker. It's a problematic ingredient for a lot of people, so I'm not sure why they even put it in there. I would have given it 5 stars otherwise. A tiny dab the Missha Perfect Cover gives my other BB a boost of color, provides better coverage, increases the SPF a little, and gives my skin a nice dewy glow that lasts all day. It also solves the breakout problem, for me at least.
