MISSHA Complexion Coordinating BB Creams - Pure & Flawless*

Today I'll be talking about a line of BB/CC creams form MISSHA. The MISSHA Complexion Coordinating BB Cream (hence the BB/CC) comes in two versions: No.1 Pure Complexion and No. 2 Flawless Complexion. This BB/CC cream range is advertised to “coordinate” internally and externally to provide a flawless complexion. Internally it is suppose to brighten, firm, moisturize and soothe with various ingredients such as pomegranate extract, peptide, cactus extract, etc. Externally it is suppose to improve skin tone, correct flaws, and even texture.

The white version, No. 1 Pure Complexion, is said to be a skin brightening cream to achieve luminous and glowing skin. The black version, No. 2 Flawless Complexion, is a flaw correction cream to achieve clear and smooth skin. Both are SPF 43/ PA +++ and provide ample sun protection for daily use.

No. 1 Pure Complexion: 
The product is a white cream that contains colour capsules that is suppose to adjust to create a natural tone. When applied, the white cream only changed colour slightly, producing a very pale shade. It was too light for me and for reference I am shade Beige 10 in Chanel foundations and 117 in MUFE. Also the coverage was pretty sheer. It did not cover any major imperfections but did do a good job in evening the overall look of the skin. The finish was very dewy thus delivering on its promise of luminous skin. The staying power of this product wasn’t great on me. It lasted roughly 2-3 hours before it got more oily than I can stand for and I had to remove it. I also found that the texture of the BB/CC cream to be thinner than those that I have tried in the past.

Overall, I don’t have very much to say about this BB/CC cream because its not formulated for my skin type. For my oily skin the coverage, finish, and staying power just didn’t cut it for me. But if you have dry, dull skin I would definitely suggest trying it out as I can see it working out quite nicely. 

No. 2 Flawless Complexion:
This product is dispensed as a beige cream. The shade of this BB/CC cream was much more acceptable for my skin tone.  It appeared too light when first applied but oxidized a tad with wear making it a pretty close match. The coverage is fairly good, about light to medium, and covers most of my hyperpigmentation and scarring. The finish of this BB/CC cream is what surprised me the most. It dries down a lot more than I expected. I wouldn’t say it dries completely matte but a demi matte, making it perfect for my oily skin.  This lasted around 4-5 hours on me before I had to blot, which is decent oil control for a BB/CC cream. The texture of this was thicker than the white version but was still easy to blend out with fingers.

Overall, I much prefer this BB/CC cream from the line. It provided all the things I need and did not get from the white version. I would recommend this version over the other if you have similar skin concerns and needs as me.
