Missha: M Perfect Cover B.B. Cream – No. 23 Natural Beige Review

How was your holidays so far? Mine has been uneventful due to work. I had to go to work for nothing when I should have been on leave! Right now, I’m in my relative’s house doing absolutely nothing, when my special someone promised we’d go out. And by some circumstance, he found yet AGAIN another reason not to fulfill what he promised. So please don’t expect me to be all happy about it.


And because of my idle time, I decided to write this overdue post.


Few months back, I wanted to try this popular BB cream from Missha. But I don’t really go to work with full make-up on my face, so I get to try this when I go out. Or when I hang out in the house, trying new make-up. I’m just too lazy to put a lot of make-up so early in the morning when I go to work.


Meet the popular Missha M Perfect Cover B.B. Cream SPF 42 PA+++  in No. 23 Natural Beige!IMG_0199Missha describes this product as:

FRONT PRINT: 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.

BACK PRINT: This M Perfect Cover BB Cream makes your skin tone clean and natural by concealing blemishes with excellent skin coverage. It is a multi functional makeup cream with blocking UV rays, whitening and wrinkle care effects and simplifies makeup formalities. Its moisturized application with W/S texture makes sleek skin tone while supplying moisture and nutrition at the same time.

Directions: After basic skin care, apply an appropriate amount along the skin texture and finish with powder. Do not need to apply Sun cream in addition.


For one, I have to agree with the claims that this is indeed a good product. Based on the website, this product comes in 5 shades: 13 (Milky Beige), 21 (Light Beige), 23 (Natural Beige), 27 (Honey Beige), and 31 (Golden Beige). Such an extensive color choices for a Korean product! There are 2 sizes also: 50g (full size) or the 20 g (“half” size). I got mine in the mall, and it costed me P799 ($18) for a 20 g. You might get this 50-60% off straight from a friend or a relative from S. Korea. I got the smaller size since I don’t really get to finish a tube. Plus, you only need a small amount to cover your face!



Like most of Missha’s BB Cream, this came in with a shimmy (brown to red and gold to silver) box. The BB cream (20g) came in a red tube form, with a small nozzle and a twist cap. For the full sizes (50 g), it comes in with a pump at the tip instead of nozzle, and a transparent cover. Nothing fancy here.


Here’s the BB cream upon dispensed. I only used a small dot to swatch it for you. The consistency upon dispensed is like a watery/oily moisturizer. It does have this powdery chemical smell. For those who are extremely sensitive with scents, this might not be the one for you. But I really don’t mind the scent.


Upon spreading out, you’d notice it’s a tad too dark for my skin. I initially thought so, and believed that I should have gotten No 21. But based on my experiences with Korean products, I know darn well that I’m a 23. My skin color is like your typical Pacific Islander girl, just slightly tan.


And here it is all blended! As if it just adjusted to my skin color (became lighter). It has this light powdery finish. It has a good wear time too. Around 6-8 hrs if settled well. This terrific for hot and humid days when you need light coverage. It also didn’t break me out, which is loves! This has good oil control, perfect for combi like me, or perhaps to oily skinned people. For dry skin, this might not be ideal since it could emphasize your lines. This is also good at concealing minor blemishes, but for those big and too dark, you might need to still use a concealer. Another plus: relatively high SPF coverage and PA! The highest I’ve seen so far. Not bad, not bad at all.


Would I recommend this? Definitely! Good for combi, reasonably priced, long wear, small dot goes a long way, and can conceal minor blemishes! Oh and not to mention the high SPF and PA coverage!


I love this. It’s just that I don’t really use this often, and I’ve got tons more of make-up! Isn’t it obvious from my hauls? Yet, I find this one a keeper.

  1. Thanks for the great review. I’m back to using my beloved #13, I had used up a small tube and started a 50ml one quite some time ago, but like you I also have other great skin products.. I really like this for many reasons, the great SPF and PA, nice ingredients, coverage and moisturization is just right for me and I love what a rare pale color 13 is *yay*

    Wishing you nice holidays with at least some fun things to do! x


    1. Thanks for dropping by Crackpot Honey! Happy New Year to you! 🙂 Wow, #13?!?! You must be very very fair to use such shade! If I remember it correctly, this BB cream was part of the top 5 BB Creams list a couple or so years back. I’m just not sure what position it holds exactly, but it’s a big no wonder.

      Hope you’ll have a great holiday too. At least for the remainder of it. 🙂


  2. Great review! I buy the #21 shade in 50ml size tube from South Korea-based top-rated sellers on Ebay for around 10Euros or 11$USD.
    It’s a wonderful BB cream, the only one I tried that doesn’t break me out (and I have combination acne-prone skin, more on the oily side, very sensitive too). I totally agree that this gives good coverage for a BB cream and the formula is quite good for oily skin: in my case I just set with translucent powder and usually only need to blot a couple times throughout the day.
    But for dry skin patches it doesn’t work so well, so I always prep my skin with a light moiturizer of easy absorption, and only after that I apply the BB cream.
    The only downside I can think of is that the really high SPF makes this BB cream terrible for taking photos with flash at night… the face just looks like a ghost! So I really wish Missha would also create a “night out” version by simply removing the SPF from the formula.
    I wonder if there is a nice concealer by Missha with good coverage to also go with this great BB cream.
