Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream

petek, marec 15, 2013

I became very, very pale this winter, too pale for my beloved Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 51, so I went on a search for an extremely light shade of foundation or BB cream. I found some great reviews on MUA for Missha's BB creams and their shade number 13, so I ordered myself a small tube of the M Signature Real Complete B.B. Cream. This is my third Asian BB and it is very different than the other two I tried (Skin79 Pink Label - review and Holika Holika Peach Girl - review), particularly in terms of texture. 
The texture is very light and runny. It reminds me a lot of Bourjois Healthy Mix serum, but the latter has a bit more coverage. Also, unlike HM serum, this BB leaves my skin tacky for about a 1/2 hour, then it finally dries and sets. It has an SPF 25 PA++. Like most Asian BB's, it best applied with fingers, namely it needs the warmth of the finger tips to blend in. Since it's not as thick as the rest BBs, it also works fine with a brush.

It has light to medium coverage. It evens out the skin and covers minor redness, however, as you can see on the picture below, it doesn't cover blemishes, dark circles or strong redness. It has a dewy finish and I suspect most with oilier skins will perhaps find it too dewy. Like Healthy Mix Serum it makes your skin look like you have nothing on, it just looks like your skin but better and this is the finish I love the most. I don't detect any grey tones that Asian BB creams usually have.
Staying power is decent, it's not going to last all day, but keep in mind this is a dewy, light coverage foundation. It wears off nicely, evenly and doesn't go patchy like foundations with fuller coverage do on me.

It smells like baby powder and the scent is quite strong, but it disappears quickly.

The shade I got, number 13, is the lightest I have ever come across. It's somewhere between neutral and pinky toned, and fits me perfectly right now. In fact, this is the first foundation/BB that fits me that well and  Bourjois foundations, though very light, are very yellow toned. There are two more shades, number 21, which I hear is close to Skin79's Pink Label BB, and darker one, number 23.
I got the small, 20g tube, which is nice and it's easy to get the product out. The full size tubes come with a pump and contains 45g of product.

I bought it on eBay for 11$ (8.5€ / 7.30£). Full size is about 14€ / 12.50£ / 17$ (it depends on the seller, obviously).

I've had it for a month now and I really enjoy wearing it, however, I got blackheads on my nose, which I've never had before. I can't be certain that this BB is the cause for it, it could be Collection 2000 concealer causing it, but these are the only things I changed. I haven't had any breakouts elsewhere.

I'm wearing only Missha BB here with no concealer:
I'm also wearing Missha BB but with Collection 2000 concealer in this post.

I really like this BB, because the shade is perfect, I love the light texture, dewy finish and the fact that is almost undetectable on the skin. However, I don't like that it leaves my skin tacky and I'm concerned about the blackheads. It rivals my beloved Healthy Mix Serum, however, I still think the latter looks and feels better on the skin.

  1. Živjo,
    že nekaj časa čakam kdaj se bo Peach Girl v odtenku 1 pojavila na e-bayju, ker sem prebrala tvoj post o njej pa je ne najdem ali je pa predraga, tako da sem na koncu naročila Missho Perfect cover v odtenku 13 in je ok, sem pa zraven dobila še testerček tele Signature in mi je bolj všeč po teksturi in prekrivnosti, tako da sem jo ravno včeraj naročila, tudi v najsvetlejšem odtenku, danes pa berem tvoj post!!! Tole pa je naključje ;)

    1. Meni tudi ni jasno zakaj je svetlejši odtenek Peach Girl toliko dražji na eBayu, res nelogično. Je pa Peach Girl zelo prekrivna in veliko težja od Signature Complete. No super, upam da boš zadovoljna z nakupom :)

  2. your skin looks gorgeous without and with missha ... the shade is really light

    1. Thank you. Yeah, it's the lightest I found to date and it matches me perfectly. They have two darker shades as well :)
