Refer back to My Skin Break Down post to get a better idea of how the product worked out for me.

Missha M Perfect Cover B. B Cream SPF 42 PA+++

One of the most well known Korean bb creams on the market.

On the front it says,
“MISSHA M PERFECT COVER B.B CREAM offers a novel skincare concept with B.B cream. Which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability, and prevents skin aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties.”
Also quoted from Missahus.com
"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. "

First off lets take a look at the packaging. It comes in a 50 ml pump-tube bottle. The over all packaging is quite simple being an all over red coloring tube with the top portion front and back of the tube having small gold dots. When you first look at the tube it may seem like an ordinary red bottle, but as light hits the surface of the packaging the tube gives off a golden sheen, which I do enjoy the subtle detailing to the package.
On the front of the bottle, in silver lettering, Missha’s logo M is on the top center on the tube with Perfect cover b.b cream right under it. Following that it tells you this product contains SPF42 PA+++ and the shade, in the case NO.21. after that it describes a little about the overall b.b cream and lastly labeled at the bottom is Missha’s name.

On the back it restates the product, shade, and functions in Korean.
Missha M Perfect Cover B. B Cream comes in 5 different shades. NO.13 Milky Beige, No.21 Light Beige, No.23 Natural Beige, No.27 Golden Beige, and No. 31 Golden Beige.  It is quite rare to find bb creams that have more than 1-2 shades. This definitely makes Missha more user friendly. (Swatches of colors can be found on the Misshaus website). 

Now on to the actual product review.

This bb cream is one of the thicker bb creams available. It supplies a good amount of coverage with a creamy consistency.


The creaminess of this product gives it the ability to glide on easily without having to use any effort to blend. Not only that, but it also has amazing medium coverage, which is easily buildable or sheered out. Another thing is that is bb cream is very moisturizing and does not leave any type of patchiness on the skin.

The undertone to this product leans more on the pink to neutral side with a hint gray undertone. This shade is more suitable for lighter skin tones.
This bb cream also does not enlarge pores or settle into fine lines.
After application the product does oxidize, changing the initial color, making it slightly darker than when it first came out of the tube.
This product does give off a slight perfume scent, which dissipates not long after applied.
Price for this can range anywhere between $13-$30 usd, which may sound like a big range, but it comes in a variety of sizes, from 20mL to 50mL. 

My experience:

I have no troubles blending this into my skin; I have used a brush, sponge, and even my fingers and all work great. Using different tools will give you different coverage. The color is suitable for my skin, though when first applied may seem a tad light and the color seemed to be off, but after giving it time to settle and oxidize, it works well. I enjoy how buildable the coverage is and how easily it is to sheer out. This also brought moisture to my face. I like wearing this bb cream during the drier, colder seasons because of the moisturizing factor, but this works well in warmer seasons as well. The fact that this also has a SPF of 42+++ is just one of the reasons why this is such an amazing product. Because of the type of skin I have, I do have to set with a powder. The oil control for me is about 6 hours before I have to blot. If I were to stay out for the entire day I would maybe have to blot every 5-6 hours. Another thing that I enjoy about this product is that it does not enlarge pores or settle into fine lines. The scent does not bother me nor have I experienced breakouts with this product, in fact, this bb cream have lighten, even diminished, preexisting acne scars and helped reduce existing blemishes. I can’t say too much on the anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties in this product because I haven’t seen any dramatic changes, but it is still one of the main properties I like in this product. I feel as though my skin has truly benefited from Missha’s bb cream. This bb cream will always stay in my repurchase items. 

Let's move on to the photo review ;)
Here I have shown this product on my arm and on the back of my hand.

Coverage: Medium-Full
Oil Control: ~6 hours
Undertone: Pink
Texture: Creamy
Suitable for: All Skin Types
Fragrance: Slight perfume smell
Finish: semi-matt to dewy 

For those first starting off with bb creams I think this is a great product to begin with. Given that Missha M Perfect Cover has a wider shade selection, it will be easier to find a better match for different skin tones. You may also want to try out the smaller sized bottle to see if you like it before purchasing the bigger one. :D

I have both shade No.21 and No.23. When I was more on the tan side No.23 matched well, but at the moment No.21 is a better match. 
If you would like me to do a comparison of shade No.21 and No.23 together, let me know down below :) and I will do my best to compare the two shades. 



  1. Hi Kristen, Great review. I loved using this BB cream too but my only issue is that it got oily too quickly and I'm not one to touch up my make up ever. I agree this might be the best BB cream to start with for beginners. Thanks for the review.

  2. I've never tried this BB cream and now I really want to try it out >_<

  3. One of my favorite BB creams. Great review :)

  4. Hi Fannie,
    Thank you so much and you're welcome ;) If oiliness is one of your concerns I recommend Dr. Jart Silver Label BB Cream.
    Thanks for stopping by !

    Hey Lisa!! x)

    Hey Lauren,
    Thank you so much! This is definitely one of my staple bb creams ;D
    Thanks so much for stopping by! <3

  5. I'm wondering, did you purchase this BB Cream straight from Missha's website, or from a seller on another website?

    I'm currently trying to determine whether the BB Cream I just purchased is a fake or not, so I'm looking around for some help/evidence. :s

    1. Hi ^~^ Thank you for stopping by ;) I actually didn't purchase this BB Cream from the Missha webpage, but from another site. If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase yours from? From experience I can only speak for some sites that I have or another person has purchased from. Usually packaging or product is a dead give away in determining a fake.

  6. are you sure yours is real?? where you bought it?
