Review : Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in No. 27

Hello loves!

This is actually a late post, but I still want to share it because this product that I will review is one of the few BB creams that I LOVE! 

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream

I bought this at Cinderella, Glorietta for PhP 799.00. I purchased this a long time ago and I'm not sure if the Missha stall is still there. :P

The shade is have is No. 27, Honey Beige. This is not my exact shade. It's a tone darker, but during the time I took the photos, my skin was also darker or of the same shade as this BB Cream. So all was good!

Before I proceed with the review, here's what was written on the label of the product's packaging:

And on the website:

Originally developed as a salve for patients after laser treatment, BB Cream’s soothing and regenerative properties were adapted for cosmetics to improve skin while providing coverage. The M Perfect Cover BB Cream is Missha’s most popular product with over 30 million sold worldwide. Combining cosmetics with skin care, this product promotes natural-looking coverage while providing sun protection, treating dark spots, and preventing wrinkles. 

The M Perfect Cover BB Cream is suitable for all skin types and can be used as a makeup base or foundation. 

Size: 50ml

How to Use:
After your basic skin care routine, use a primer for an even base
Pump out an appropriate amount of BB Cream (1 pump is usually more than sufficient)
Dab product on cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose areas and use the tips of your fingers to lightly smooth product over face OR
Lightly dab product with a sponge and smooth evenly over face
Build coverage using leftover product by lightly tapping over any problem areas
Set with powder for a matte finish if desired

The one I bought is the 20ml tube. Missha also has this in a 50ml tube with a pump dispenser. The smaller size is just a simple tube with a small nozzle. You can easily control the amount of product you dispense (it also helps that the product has a thick, creamy consistency). Design-wise, it looks classy with it's metallic red color, with a twist cap that's silver. The fonts used show a serious tone which shows a different vibe compared to most cutesy designs that I usually see in Korean makeup.

Missha claims that the Perfect Cover BB can provide sun protection, add coverage, and is anti-aging (although I consider this more as moisturizing), lightweight, and gives a natural-looking finish. Those claims are music to my ears because those are exactly the things I look for in my base makeup! Let's see if these are true. ;)

Here's the product. As mentioned above, the consistency is quite thick and creamy... 

But when spread out, you'll feel that it really is lightweight, but also gives quite an impressive coverage.

It gives a semi-matte finish. See the before and after photos of my face below for a better comparison: 

Bare face
with the product

The yellow undertone of the shade Honey Beige gave me a more warmer tone which I actually like because it is closer to my neck and shoulders' skin shade. My face is redder as it is often exposed to the sun.

As seen on the photos, it does give that matte finish but still not flat (that's why I call it semi-matte). It actually looks natural! The coverage is really good as it took care of the redness and also the pimple scars I have. It's buildable too! Just dab it on the darker scars and it's like an instant concealer. It didn't do much on the pore reducing part if you're wondering about that... but this product doesn't claim anything to help in that department so this is not an issue.

As suggested in the product description, I apply a setting powder on top. By adding so helped with minimizing pores and the combo of BB Cream + powder made sure that my makeup lasted for the whole day. Even if I don't blot my oily skin, my base makeup is still there (but shiny with all the oil).

Sorry for the ugly brows again

I like that this product simplifies my morning rituals as it is like a moisturizer + sunscreen + foundation in one. I do still use an oil free moisturizer underneath, but if I'm in a hurry, the hydration that this product provides is enough. I brought this with me when I travelled to Australia and it was just so handy!

What I LIKE:
- Really good coverage (buildable)
- Has SPF 42, PA+++
- Long-lasting
- Lightweight
- Easy to blend on skin
- The shade Honey Beige is warm tone
- Gives adequate moisture to skin
- Natural-looking finish
- Packaging
- Locally available

- This is not really a big issue, but I find Missha PH's price a bit more expensive than I expect (if I compare it to the prices in the Korea and some other Asian countries and even in the US).
- No oil control (As I've mentioned, the product never claimed to control sebum production so it's still not an issue... I just prefer products with oil control)

So yeah... All the claims that it promises are all true. No wonder it's one of Missha's best selling products. As I've said, I love this BB Cream and I recommend this if you're looking for a BB to try.

Have you tried the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream? What shade are you? Do you like it too?



  1. Beautiful products :)
    Love your blog and I am a new follower on GFC.
    I hope that you will follow me too :)

  2. This has to be one of my favorite BB creams, I love the coverage and yellow tone of it. I've owned this shade before and still keep it for mixing with other shades when I get tanned.

    1. It's one of the few BB creams that I really love! I think it's one of the few base products that I can buy again without hesitation. :)

  3. This is one of my favorite BBs too! It's actually my first BB ever. :)

    1. Nice! I can't remember my first one, but I bet this set the bar high when it comes to the next bb creams you tried. ;)

  4. Ate, what did you put after the "with the product" photo? How did you hide your pores??

    Also, do you know a nice bb cushion for oily skin (or my type of oily anyway)?

    1. I used a setting powder, either Ben Nye's Banana powder or the 3W Clinic Makeup Powder. :)

      I'm a fan of the one from Laneige. I also liked a product from Missha and it's a BB Cake... but it's not really a cushion kasi it's like a solid cream type pero compact form na may applicator na parang sa cushions. It's pretty good. I have a review of it here, check out the Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing BB Cake.
