Tanned beauties look no further, there's now a bb cream suited for NC40 - and maybe higher. (: On my older blog, I talked about this bb cream once before, and I didn't like it much. But I think now my skin has changed and I'm starting to love Missha's Perfect Cover BB Cream because its working, lol.
BRAND: Missha PRODUCT TYPE: B.B (Blemish Balm) Cream SHADE(S): NO31 Golden Beige PRICE: 13-20USD (depending on size & where you purchase) PROS: SPF 42, Evens Out Skin, Helps With Blemishes CONS: Shade, Accentuate Dry Areas, Can Get Oily Throughout The Day Would I Recommend? Yes & No
Before this, I was using NO23 - which is one shade up from NO31. In the winter, NO23 is a good match for me - in the summer I'm in between shades. NO31 is actually a tad too dark, but that's okay since my forehead (LOL), neck and body gets darker in the summer so it evens out my color. From the swatch, you can see a significant difference between the two shades. I didn't realize it was such a dramatic color jump until I swatched the two together.
This BB cream oxidizes just a little, so to counter that I set it with a good powder (Maybelline's Dream Matte powder never fails me!) that's slightly lighter and that does the job. Most people say that this bb cream leaves their skin looking 'dewy', but I say it leaves my skin looking more 'semi-matte' than anything. What I love about this BB cream is that its pretty light in texture. It glides on my skin much smoother than NO23. I also saw a difference in my skin. I often get tiny blemishes that are hard to get rid of and this made them disappear. I also believe that this helped fade some of my new acne scars too.
I would recommend BB cream to those who don't really need much coverage or little coverage. If you suffer from acne, I'd say you try it if you want, but its definitely not a miracle worker - you're probably better off investing your money in skin care products. I'd recommend trying out samples first. Sites like Facial Shop have sample packs that you can try before committing to purchasing the full-sized products.
