Phew! That was long! LOL

A 50ml tube costs Php1380.00 from Missha stores in the Philippines.
But mine is only 20ml. Bought it online months ago.

The tube is very hygienic. It has a sort of like a stopper on the cap to avoid leaking.
The tube is actually soft so squeezing out the product is very easy. But the small whole makes squeezing the product out very controllable so you get the desired amount.
 Here's the product on my hand

It's not yellowish but not beigey either so it's quite safe on my skin. It doesn't make me look like i have grayish skin. :P
It has a scent too. Not a fan of it but it is tolerable. You don't really smell it unless you apply a generous amount.

Here's my hand when I blended the product.
The product is a little thicker than some BB creams I've tried but blends quite easily. But it's not as thick as liquid foundations!
This never got my skin irritated but it doesn't have oil control properties.

 Here's a before and after shot of my face when I apply the product,
Eeew at my pimple marks! Haha.

Anyway, it didn't give much coverage. I guess it's between light-medium. The shade is lighter than my skin. It brightened my face and also hid the redness on my skin.
 I don't really think it gives a pearly effect. It looks dewy because of all the glitters.
It really has a very glittery finish. Just look at the photo below.

Zoom in in the picture and my face is sooooo sparkly like a fairy princess. But seriously, it's like a glitter bomb just exploded.
The glitters are quite fine so i use a very matte finishing powder to lessen the 'glitter-ness.'
It actually looks better after a matte powder is applied.


♥ Has SPF 27
♥ Brightens face
♥ Easy to blend
♥ Locally Available
♥Love the tube packaging


• I don't like the super glittery finish
• Quite expensive for me
• No oil control

Will I buy again?
Probably not. I don't like having a sparkly face. I already got an oily face and adding glitters won't help me avoid having my face all shiny. I just bought it because I was curious about the "dewy" look. I still think the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream is better.

Have you tried this BB Cream yet?
What do you think about it?



  1. parang gusto ko i-try yung glittery finish. interesting lang. hehe :P

  2. Hi Gellie! Kind of reminds me of the vamps in twilight! LOL

  3. Aww sayang hindi sya pwede for oily face like me!

  4. Natawa ako sa vamps in Twilight! :))

  5. Hazel - Oh well, there are still more BB creams out there for us to look out for! :P

    Janine - Haha! True naman eh! :P

  6. awwww thanks for this review sis, I might skip this one then. have a nice day =)

  7. I've a tried another BB cream na medyo pearly ang finish. I like sana kaso lalo akong kumikintab. Haha

  8. Frozen Blossoms - No prob! Have a nice day as well!

    Aya - My thoughts exactly. This one is rather good in terms of the coverage and color but the "my face looks too sparkly" part turns me off. :(

  9. awww too bad about the shining shimmering kyeme.
    it's kinda hard to shake products like these since it's in a tube like that and it's squeezy and not see through so it's hard to tell if it's all mixed right O.O
    it reminds me of photoready though yung tipong wala masyadong coverage tas ang bilis mag oily hahaha

  10. Marge - True. That's why we just have to remember to "shake well before using" everytime. Haha. Parang hair spray/mousse lang. :P

  11. I was browsing from since morning in search of music notes in that search sudden i got your post its really nice and interesting also.

  12. Hi everyone! Sino dito naka try na ng Missha lip balm? nakita ko kasi sya sa (, last night and now I'm thinking kung bibilhin ko sya kasi nag hahanap palang ako ng positive feedbacks. So far magaganda naman yung mga nakikita ko kasi ok naman yung brand na missha. Thanks!
