Missha BB cream and shades


It makes the skin look natural and clean, and provides excellent and yet light coverage of blemishes. It is a make up cream that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, whitens the skin and also protects it from the harmful effects of the sun. It is really moisturizing, so in addition to providing glowing, dewy and sleek complexion, it also provides nutrition that the skin needs. It is applied after the regular skincare products and with added powder on top if necessary. As it contains SPF, adding sun cream is not necessary. Although some formulas contain parabens and mineral oils, there are versions of this BB cream that are completely paraben- free. Many BB creams in the US market claim to be all- in- one products but rarely live up to those promises. However, Korean BB creams, like this one by Missha, really live up to those standards and provide even fuller coverage then the US ones.

Lip products:

Etude House products for lip are probably the best on the Korean market, especially their latest release of liquid lipsticks. They come in a pretty transparent bottle and the packaging is very eye- catching. The shades are very vivid and greatly pigmented and the formula is watery at first but it dries to a matte finish. The color is not fully opaque but it could be built up and they have a nice and pleasant fruity scent. You can choose from the seven very unique and wearable shades that suit every skin tone. However, they are not really long- lasting and the color transfers after some time, but overall, the quality is quite good for the very affordable price.
