Missha BB Cream No13

Today's post is on Missha Perfect Cover BB cream in No 13 Milky Beige.
Now I wasn't fully aware of BB creams until recently, and for you who don't know what they are here's some more information.
'BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, although larger beauty brands are increasingly transferring BB creams to European markets as well.

BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities mainly perceived as being anti-inflammatory, regenerative and having a soothing effect. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are said to be anti-acne or anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars.'
Most BB creams also contains spf which is a great bonus, Missha has spf 42.

After seeing lots of different BB creams around I decided to try Missha Perfect Cover, after looking at swatches I settled on no 13.
I purchased mine from ebay for around £6.50 with postage for 20ml, you can see options here.

The consistency is very similar to my Liz Earle skin tint, you can see that review here. This is not as moisturising as I expect it to be, I feel Liz Earle is better. It doesn't feel heavy or too greasy which is nice as I had a feeing that could be an issue.

Colour wise the match is great, you can see the swatches below.

I love how this applies to my skin, the colour match and coverage. But oddly I don't think it lasts great. I also don't feel it cover my blemish or dark circles that well either. But maybe I was expecting too much. Though this will be a foundation I repurchase as at the moment I would miss this in my collection.

Here is me wearing it.

I also like BB Cream and think that in general they don't last long :(

I know! I was really surprise, I thought it would last longer.

It's one of those products I really want to love, but I don't see any reason to part with concealer/foundation/bronzer to use it regularly.

Darn, I was hoping to try this. I shall have to continue my search. It does look lovely on you in the picture, however. Too bad it wears off so quickly.

Thanks for the comments.

@Susie - I completely agree

@Isis04 - thanks, its one of those products that you could do with a sample of first so you can see if the staying power is better on your skin type etc.
