In the beauty world, over the past say 6 months there has been a new kid on the block in the guise of BB cream. I have heard so many of the Youtube beauty gurus talk about it that i have been dying to get my hands on some and give it a try!!!
Its notoriously hard to get hold of here in the UK so i spent alot of time and energy finding an Ebay shop based in Korea with 100% feedback. When i found one i was pleased with i took the plunge and bought one.
I didn't get the the skin79 BB cream in the pink canister as the reviews have always said it is a lil on the grey side, and having an olive skin tone i didn't want to get it only to find it left an ashy tone on my face.
I instead opted for the MISSHA Perfect Cover BB Cream in shade 23. I decided to pick this one as it has a slightly darker tone and a little less grey.
As you can see from the above swatch, it is more of a pink tone, i was really pleased with the colour choice as my skin with its olive tones can sometimes look a little sallow (mostly in the winter) so the pink tone warms up my skin nicely.
The official website says...
The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.
Whitening + Anti-Wrinkle + UV Protection (SPF 42 PA+++)
I would have to agree with their claims that it gives a natural cover, for me tho i think i could wear this with just a little powder and would feel confident.
At the moment my skin is a little to dark to be able to just use this, so because of that i am using it as a foundation primer ( I ran out of my Mac PREP & PRIME) and loving the results.
Have you tried BB cream?? What do you think?
Does it live up to the hype?
I would have to say YES!!
