Product Review: Korean Brand Makeup Cosmetic - Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream
I love Korean makeup, and more Korean brands are now selling face makeup for darker and more tan skin tones. The reason for this is to sell to the U.S. market (there is more and more Korean makeup brands being sold in Target now), and because there is a current trend in Korean for tanning. So, one of the few Korean brands that has darker shades is Missha, so I will be reviewing the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream today.

Lines: This BB cream did settle into the lines under my eyes quite a bit, so I recommend keeping it away from the under eye area.
Pros: This is a great BB cream because it does cover really well and it does reduce the appearance of dark circles. The coverage for this BB cream is so good that you can wear it by itself in place of foundation.
Cons: The downside though is that when taking pictures, because there is a lot of flashback and a white cast, it can look quite white on the skin and very mask-like if you are at all tan. Also, because of the whiteness of this BB cream, I do not feel that this BB cream is for women of color or women with even a slight tan. This BB cream is exclusively for very light-colored women, such as Asian women and women who are very pale.
Finally, this BB cream did settle into the lines under my eyes and into the lines on the left-side of my mouth. So when wearing this BB cream, you should keep it away from the under eye area, and since it does settle into lines, I do not recommend it for older more mature skin.
Personally, I feel that my skin looks better without this BB cream; it just isn't for my skin tone.
