Review: Missha M Perfect Cover and Etude House Precious Mineral Matte BB Creams

I wanted to try out a BB cream that felt light but still had coverage. I have some redness on my cheeks and a Rudolph nose that I'll like to cover. I saw good reviews about Missha and Etude House. I placed an order on BeautyNetKorea. I researched around to get the best price on these products and shipping costs.

Etude House Precious Mineral Matte- Sand $7.66
Missha M Perfect Cover- #21 Light Beige and #23 Natural Beige $7.52/ea
Shipping $6.75 USD

For shade references: I'm in between the shades MAC NC20-25. My best foundation match is The Ordinary in 2.0 YG or 2.0 N.

Missha M Perfect Cover has decent coverage for a BB cream. Spot concealing before would be better for acne and scars. It looked like it mostly covered my redness. I have combination/oily skin and this makes me look too dewy like it will slide off my skin. It looks much better with setting powder but the product was settling into pores in certain spots. I probably haven't found the right products to work together.


Shade #21 was too light in comparison to my neck. My face and neck are different shades but this was too drastic. It definitely pulls grey!

Missha #23 is still a tad light and pulls grey. I've been mixing it with my other yellow foundations to get a better shade match. I need to do several wear tests with other powders first. I used Rimmel's powder and it just sits on top of my skin in patches. Since this is too grey on me I could probably use a banana powder if I wanted to wear this BB cream by itself.

Etude House's BB Cream is matte. I got it in the only available shade at the time: Sand! This shade matches me better than Missha. The swatch looked really orange so I was worried. I did notice it seemed to cover my acne slightly better. It didn't look good on my dry nose. I still haven't mastered fixing that problem. Sometimes any product will just settle weird there because my nose hates me.

I actually like both of these products. I probably wouldn't be able to wear Missha during the summer without it melting off.  Etude House's shade in Sand matches me better. I wish there were more shade options since these are just terrible and limiting. These look really natural on me if my skin cooperates and doesn't look too oily/patchy. I've worn both of these BB Creams mixed in other foundation. I like using Missha's because of the grey to tone down my "too dark/orange" foundations!

I would recommend these BB Creams if you are NC20 and below. These will be too light otherwise.
