Missha Pure Complexion Coordinating BB Cream Review & Swatches
Guess what? Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Creams are now available in the US!
You might recall that I reviewed the Flawless Complexion in a recent review. Today I thought I’d concentrate on the Pure Complexion BB Cream which honestly, is more of a CC Cream than a BB one.
Take a look!
Unlike the original Flawless Complexion the Pure Complexion formula acts both as a CC Cream and a BB Cream. Missha took the best of both worlds here and combined the two to create a rather refreshing BB Cream experience.
They call it a clean more natural look and indeed they are right as this begins life as a white cream and adjusts to your natural skin tone when applied. It melds and creates a second skin finish that can fool anyone into believing you aren’t really wearing makeup at all.
The consistency is that of a BB Cream as it is thick and creamy but once applied it blends out to a silky smooth finish that’s lightweight and breathable. It does have a strong fresh floral scent so those a little sensitive might want to be aware of this prior to purchasing.
I do find the chunky twist to release jar a little awkward as it is rather huge. This has a similar style packaging as that of ExfoiKATE but you aren’t pushing to release the BB Cream, you’re twisting. There’s a tiny spout in the center of the jar so as you twist the BB Cream is released. You can than dab a finger or a sponge into it and start application. Missha also released these in a tube in Korea so I expect Missha US will also get those soon. I think the tube is a little easier to use and considerably less large than this bulky packaging.
The color is a little too light for my skin tone and doesn’t adjust quite as well as I would like. It starts out white, goes a tad lighter peach, and proceeds to go creamy beige with pink undertones once fully set. The pink undertone is what fails for me. A little more creamy beige and I would probably be a ok! On the upside it blends out very well and once makeup is applied you won’t really notice that the shade is off.
One of the main reasons this is one to watch is due to the naturalness of the product. It’s pigmented enough to conceal problem areas yet light enough to wear comfortably without creating shine or being too heavy for daily use. It’s something that gives that bare naked skin effect which I’m all about.
It also has a rather incredible formula with brightening ingredients like Arbutin as well as peptides for firming and soothing and moisturizing ingredients so skin is left looking its very best during and after application. This also contains an SPF 43 for sun protection.
The white texture that self adjusts works as a color corrector so problem redness or darkness is easily eased here while you get the coverage of a BB Cream as well. It wears for a solid ten hours, yes, even in the heat, without fading or needing a touch up!
Overall, there’s a lot to love about Missha Pure Complexion Coordinating BB Cream! It’s unfortunate the shade wasn’t quite for my tone but if it does fit your own you’re in for a treat. This combines the best of both a CC Cream and BB Cream formula with a second-skin like finish that can only be called flawless.
This one is worth picking up!
