Review: Missha M Magic Cushion No. 21 Light Beige


This is by far the third BB cushion I have ever tried. Been using this for months, didn't intend to write any review but now I feel the need to since I kinda like it. 





I bought this set of special bundle where you'll get a full size cushion with puff, a full sized refill cushion, and an extra puff. The cushion comes in a sleek all-white packaging with silver lining. The size is a bit bulky but still practical enough for traveling.


What it claims(*):
  1. Micro Cover Pigment conceals imperfections and creates a flawless dewy finish.
  2. Lightweight texture to absorb sweat and oil for long lasting wear.
  3. Anti-caking formula to ensure even application and easy touch-ups.
  4. Replenishes hydration & refreshes skin.
  5. Contains SPF50+ / PA +++
(*) At least that's what I can conclude from reading their official website.



INGREDIENTS:
Water, Titanium Dioxide, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Glycerin, PEG-8 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Iron Oxides, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, PEG-8, Magnesium Sulfate, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Sorbitan Isostearate, HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Stearic Acid, Alumina, Iron Oxides, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Fragrance(Parfum), Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Iron Oxides, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine, Water, Disodium EDTA, Silica, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Boron Nitride, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Xylitol, PEG-32, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Bambusa Vulgaris Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Cereus Grandiflorus (Cactus) Flower Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Oxygen, Tocopherol.



When you first open the cushion, you'll find an air puff applicator and a blurry mirror. I must point out that you have to peel the sticky plastic thingy off of that mirror.


If you open the lid, you'll find the product is right underneath it, covered with some sticker as an indication the product is still new. Once it's removed, the product has one year period before it has to be disposed of.

Please keep in mind that you must never touch the cushion with bare finger unless it's clean. Whoever do this with dirty finger, you must be a child, or a serial killer, or just blatantly clueless. LOL. Just kidding. I do this for the sake of this review only.


The applicator is an air puff. It has the combination of blue on the bottom and white on the top, with Missha logo of course.

 The formula felt really lightweight on my skin, as if I wear nothing. It has beautiful dewy finish and make my normal-dry skin looks glowing and healthy. The coverage is low to medium but also very buildable. It can't cover up my imperfection in just one layer, I also have to add up some concealer to cover my dark under eye. Other than dark circles, I have no major problem on my skin that need extra cover.

I would wear this Missha M Magic Cushion using my own applicator, whether it is a damped beauty sponge/blender or a kabuki brush because it is easier for me to do so. If you prefer using its own air puff, be sure not to pick up the products too much once at a time, use it with tapping motion and light hand. I have a hard time to do this. It'll always end up looking uneven. 

I usually would just wear this product without setting it up with powder or anything. Maybe a setting spray, but not powder, because the cream sinks into my skin just like that, like a second skin, so I don't like to add powder. Please note that I have normal-dry skin. For those of you with oily skin, I would recommend otherwise.


The only thing I dislike from this cushion is the shade which is waaaay too light for me. It's No. 21 (Light Beige) which is the fairest one. I'm NC25 but my face is darker than my hand, so it's not a big deal, I guess?

I bought this bundle for about IDR 250.000 from local online store, I forgot exactly. Currently, this is my go-to base makeup and I love this. You can watch me using this cushion in this video and see how white it is on me.

Review: Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42 PA+++ (Natural Beige/23)

To buy or not to buy this, has been a confusing question for several months, but finally I got my hands on this what-so-called the best oil control BB cream ever.
 
Well, let's see.
 
***


 
The product I bought was its 20 ml which was travel size. Also available in 50 ml size. I know it's a bit cheaper to buy its full size, but I already got several base makeup products in my drawer so I gotta be wiser spending my bank account. Please note: I only WANT this, instead of NEEDING it. If only they have a 5ml travel size (not share-in-jar), I would have purchased it.
 
 
 
Some of you would notice that its 50 ml tube size was a bit deflated as if the product has been used several times (although it wasn't true), but it didn't look like that with this 20 ml tube size.
 
What it claims:
MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream offers a novel skincare concept with BB cream which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability, and prevents skin aging thorugh effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties.
 
 
 
 
Here are the shades of Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, just for your reference:
  1. Milk Beige (No. 13)
  2. Light Beige (No. 21)
  3. Natural Beige (No. 23)
  4. Honey Beige (No. 27)
  5. Golden Beige (No. 31)
 
 
 
The shade I chose was No. 23 or Natural Beige. Actually I was a bit confused to choose between Natural Beige or Light Beige because after googling some review, I noticed their Natural Beige tone is a bit darker than any other BB cream shades with similar names. But I finally chose this one.
 
 
 
 
How to use:
Apply the desired amount on face using hands or a make makeup sponge.
 
 
Ingredients:
Water(Aqua), Cyclomethicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Zinc Oxide, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mineral Oil, Phenyl Trimethicone, Talc, Arbutin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Dimethicone, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Squalane, Adenosine, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Polyethylene, Beeswax(Cera Alba), Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Caviar Extract, Algae Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Fagus Sylvatica Bud Extract, Ceramide 3, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Chloride, Fragrance(Parfum), Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Benzyl Salicylate, Hydroxycitronellal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Citronellol

MAY CONTAIN
[+/-; Titanium Dioxide(CI 77891), Iron Oxides(CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)]
 
 
 


The travel size has its unpractical cap, unlike its full size which is equppied with a pump.
 
***
 

Compared to some other BB creams I have, the shade is a bit more greyish. The consistency is not too thick nor too runny, and can be blended easily. I can smell a fresh and enjoyable scent, hard to explain it, but it sure is a unique and nice one.

Buat perbandingan warnanya, Natural Beige versi Missha ini lebih gelap dari Natural Beige punya Etude House Cotton Fit BB Cream.

 

Although the price is a bit expensive, I still don't expect the coverage will be as perfect as a foundation is. Turned out my expectation was pretty much true. I have some acne scars and sun damages, spider veins, etc on my face and they are nicely covered but still visible. But once I set it with a face powder, then BAM! I look flawless right away and my skin tone looks fairer. Unfortunately, the dark circles have to be covered twice or three times before I achieve its most flawless result.
 
***
 
As I said before, the cream itself is a bit more grey than any other BB creams I've tried, so this suits best with a fair complexion with pink undertone. On me, it looked greyish and pale but once I set it with face powder, it neutralized the tone in an instant. So unlike some other BB creams that can be wore alone without a face powder, I can't do the same thing with this one. Maybe I have to mix it with darker foundation or so, but I haven't got the formula just yet.
 
Talking about its good oil control and my normal-oily skin type, it doesn't work that way on me. I wore this alone with a face powder, for outdoor occassion, and in 3 hours my face look more greasy than usual. Even my Pond's Flawless White BB+ has better oil control than this (with cheaper price). I think this kind of reaction is reasonable considering its high consistency of SPF and PA. The higher the SPF and PA, the more oily it become.
 
For extra oil control, I hate using blotting papers, instead, I spritz a small amount of Evian face spray after applying face powder and that works pretty well. I once tried to apply Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer beneath it, yes it gave a good oil control but also made my face look like a dead person, soooo white and pale.
 
Considering its mineral oil (and parabens) consistency, those who have prones to those might find some issues towards this product, but fortunately my skin have no negative reaction whatsoever.
 
 
Summary:
  • Moisturizes
  • Glowing/dewy finishing
  • Low oil control (Yes, low! On me!)
  • The tone is more grey than most bb creams I found
  • SPF42 PA+++
  • Medium coverage
  • Medium longevity
  • How much: IDR 120K (USD 10) for 20 ml, and IDR 210K (USD 19) for 50 ml. But it really depends on the sellers. I purchased this from mylovelysister.com.
 
 
Score:
2.89 out of 5
