So I brought this in Hong Kong, in the official Missha store for $299 (£25.32) which was before I started online shopping. Otherwise I wouldn't have pay for the retail since you can get it online for around £15 or lower. On the bright side, at least I know that it's not fake, as I heard eBay sell some fakes. I did originally planned to buy the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream because has been hyping about it, but the sales lady persuaded me into buying this one instead and i'm really terrible at saying no LOL. Oh wells, let's just hope this one is better...

Starting on the review - the product claims, its best for those who:

  • Want to have perfect coverage
  • Want to reduce signs of ageing or sunspots
  • Want to use BB cream for a long time without losing its brightening effect
  • Has sensitive skin
  • Doesn't like grey toned BB creams
  • Want to use a BB cream with skin conditioning effects

To start off, I have the BB cream in the shade No.23 Natural Yellow Beige. I do think this BB cream is really good for those who don't like ashy grey tones, as this BB cream has more of a natural skin shade. As you can see from the picture below, it gives off a very natural shade and blends nicely into the skin. It matches my skin tone really well. The texture is quite runny, some people may find that it feels 'oily like' and heavy on their skin. It's definitely not lightweight.

From testing out both the Signature and Perfect Cover BB cream, I believe that this one has more coverage. It has a decent medium to high coverage. It covers the redness in my cheeks and spots, so thats pretty good. I love how radiant and dewy it makes my skin look, but if you have oily skin like me, after a few hours when the oils seeks through, it can make your skin look really greasy. :/ So you do need to blot your face throughout the day. The BB cream is longwear, so it lasts much pretty the whole day.

Another factor I like, is that it has SPF 25++ as it block harmful sun rays, and prevents my skin from darkening. As I am super obsessed with skin whitening hahaha xD. Below are photos wearing the BB cream in natural daylight and in flash. As it does have SPF, in flash photography your face can look slightly ghostly.

(Sorries my face looks really bad LOL, as I didn't want to use filters or edit it, so I can show you guys the best results. >w<)

As for reducing signs of ageing and sunspots and its great for sensitive skin, I cant really tell since I have neither hahaha. Also for the skin conditioning effects it claims to have, I don't think the BB cream has much 'skin conditioning effects' LOL. As I didn't see any differences in my skin, after using it for weeks.

For this BB cream, I would recommend it to people that don't mind spending a bit more on makeup or want to try to new products. Personally I don't think it's worth the price, as you can get BB creams that offer the same results or better results for a lower price. So overall I would rate this product 6.5/10. It's not very likely I would repurchase it either, since its not anything special.

What do you guys think of this BB cream? and you have you guys tried it? ^_^
