I placed a few orders on eBay a while ago during one of my maudlin "I must buy things" moods. I picked a few quirky Korean things that I thought looked pretty, including this Missha BB Cream.
Thanks to lovely blogs like Makeupmonster, I've been intrigued by Asian BB creams and cosmetics for a while, but have never used any apart from the little sample sachets that come free with eBay orders. I ordered this 20ml mini size from this seller for a total of €5 (P&P was free). Please note - on that listing it shows the full size, which has a pump dispenser. The mini size has a normal screw top.
At first look, I thought it was going to be far too pale for me - believe me, that's not a problem I come across regularly.
It's thick, much thicker than some other BB creams, but blends well. Here's a gammy picture, left face has nothing on and right face just has the BB cream.
The coverage was really nice for a BB cream and it felt super light on my skin. It lasted all day, but I'm not sure how well it would hold up if I was doing anything other than arsing about the house. It's still a bit shiny on my nose and on one cheek so I think if I was going out I'd use a small bit of powder.
For a shade comparison, I grabbed some foundations - I compared it with Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr in 005, Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory (Ivory my hole, it's the darkest out of the four), and Max Factor Facefinity 3 in 1 in Warm Almond:
If you're a fan of Teint Idole, but you don't want to waste it for every day, I'd definitely recommend this BB cream. It's cheap as chips, it arrived quickly, has an SPF, and it feels lovely on the skin.
