Now, it is time to review one of my new beauty haul. MISSHA SHINY J bb cream. For those of you who are wondering about BB cream, BB cream is, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia.
Originally formulated in Germany by Dr. med. Christine Schrammek, it was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.
BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are anti-acne, some are anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars. BB creams are sometimes used like a primer under foundation, and if tinted may even replace foundation and some newer ones will have functions of primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization and skin refining together which can save time and money in make-up.
Personally, I love BB cream because it is good to your skin, compares to usual foundation. And I haven`t mention that some BB cream works as well as foundation. In indonesia, there are 3 BB Cream products so far, caring colors BB cream (read the review), Maybelline BB Cream and Silky Girl BB Cream. This MISSHA cream is imported and is not available locally.

Here is the swatch
- THE package-
swatch on my skin. In a real world, it is actually greyish
shimmery look and it will oxidize to match with your skin.
The packaging of MISSHA shiny is quite cute and elegant. With a white tube and shiny labels, it totally works out the image of pearly and shiny BB Cream. The packaging is a lot like Maybelline BB Cream. You will get used to it effortlessly. When I first opened the tube, suddenly the cream inside came out without me squeezing it. I was like “ Aaa, noooo!” It happened on the second time too. So, I suggest you guys to store it upside down, so you wont waste your BB cream.
This BB cream is super pearly and super shimmery. No kidding. At first I used this Missha to my entire face. And my face turned weird. The whole face was shimmery, and if you looked at my face real close, you can really see the glitter. If my face were a sky, then the glitters are the stars. I really don`t like the result. So, I cover the cream with a Revlon loose powder ( see the review). But, the “stars” wont fade. It still glimmers. So if you still want to buy this product, just use it as a highlighter. Put it only in the bridge of your nose, your cheek bone, and lil bit on ur forehead and chin. So, your face becomes shiny where it needs to.
It has 27 SPF. The coverage is real great. I just need a little and it goes along the way. My uneven skin tone covered perfectly. It also stays longgg, super long, it stays 6 to 8 hours. Unfortunately, the oil control is bad, in three hours, you need to blot. This happens if you linger in around 30 celcius room. Overall, the rating is
Rating : 3/5
Price : 85000/ $10 for 20 ml
