(SPOILERS) Ipsy February 2013!

My Missha tube usually lasts about 6 months for me and I use it nearly everyday. I always buy on Amazon for less than $20 and they ship straight from Korea, wait time is around 2 weeks but that's not too bad.

 

P.S. Who's your favorite Doctor and companion? Mine's 11 and Donna.

Ok, I'm torn now between trying Missha and Skin79.  Has anyone tried both?  What were the differences, that you could tell?  I have skin like meaganola, pale, but with very pink/red undertones.  There is absolutely no chance of an Asian skin store opening anywhere near me (sigh. rural.) so which one is easier to order online?

You're my hero.  Just for that.

I think Missha is good for pink/red undertones. It provides very good coverage. Skin79 has a few different BB creams to choose from. I don't think you can go wrong with the Hot Pink one - good coverage and easy to apply! It seems like most people really like that one (from what I've read online). The VIP Gold one provides more coverage and is a bit lighter than the hot pink one. It's also thicker so you'll see that in the application.

 

I've tried tons of the Korean brands (Missha, Skin79, Skin Food, Holika Holika, Lioele, Dr. Jart, BRTC, The Face Shop, Innisfree, Etude House, etc etc) in the last few years. My absolute favorite is the BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream!!! It provides great coverage, smells soooo good, and makes my skin look flawless! It took a little while to find the right one for my skin but it was worth all the trial and error! I think Missha and Skin79 are good brands to start with (I primarily used the hot pink Skin79 BB cream for about a year before finding the BRTC one)!

So many great ideas here!  I'd like to see:

 

  • A lip scrub
  • A sheet mask, clay mask or a mud mask
  • Bath salts or a bath bomb
  • Lashes or maybe an eyelash curler
  • Some sort of brow product...I don't remember seeing them do this yet?  [EDIT: Ohhh, right, the empty Chella tube.  No wonder I forgot]

 

Basically I want some good pampering stuff for pre-date prep and then some final touches that take your look from everyday to extra special.  

 

If they do chocolate again, I hope it's dark chocolate and salted.  YUM.

I have not tried both, but I have very fair skin with serious rosacea (bright red cheeks and chin) and the Missha works for me.  It goes on really gray and weird but evens out as it oxidizes.  I get a little pooling/unevenness by the end of the day though, so I prefer a regular long wearing foundation like MAC studio fix over a BB cream since my red is so intense and I work long hours.

-It sets REALLY quickly.  I have to be fast to spread it around before it dries up on me

-It doesn't provide any coverage that I can see.  

-It hasn't improved my skin.

 

I've used it 3x now with with no visible results.  So for me, it doesn't have any of the benefits that I've seen advertised for BB's.  However, I just got a sample of the Maybelline BB cream in the mail today, I'll try it soon and report back if there's anything that's different!  

 

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-In-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector:  This is my HG foundation.  I have hated everything else I tried - my skin can still breath with this.

Um, that's probably because you're not using a "real" BB creme. Sorry to sound elitist and persnickety (which probably a lot of people who use Asian BB cremes do, but it's true), but what "real" BB cremes are are completely different than what the western market has manufactured (psst: a tinted moisturizer).

 

I use Missha BB cremes and it: 1) is super thick and covering 2) dries kind of slowly (which is annoying) but makes your skin look close to flawless after it sets, and 3) is not watery and runny at all.

 

Also, I'm not really sure what visible results you expected to see after 3 uses? What kind of effects do you see from beauty products in general after 3 uses? This isn't Crest Whitestrips.

I love the Missha. At first I was terrified because you're right it does initially go on very gray and doesn't look like it matches your skin at all, but after a few minutes it sets in and looks airbrushed. I love it. My only  issue is that by mid day it tends to make me a little oily in my T zone (and I don't usually have oily skin) - but nothing some quick power or a blotting paper can't fix!

Thank you EVERYONE for your responses!  I think I'm gonna have to order some Missha soon!

Thanks for letting me know about the gray fading, I probably would have put it on, seen the gray, and went NOPE, wash it off!  I don't have really red skin (although I practically glow when I blush!), so hopefully I'll be able to get away with just the BB Cream

You're right, I'm a relative newbie to "upscale" makeup, so I wouldn't know a "real" BB cream if my life depended on it.  Hopefully, it never comes to that. wink.gif  I've actually had several products that give me visible results after 3 uses, after all, to me that's the point of most of my sample subs... if something makes a visible, positive difference, I'm much more likely to buy a full size.  The Josie Maran Argan Oil (Ipsy/Jan), Laura Mercier Face Polish (It Kit/Dec), and Juice Beauty Moisturizer (Citrus Lane/Nov) are all products that gave me visible, measurable results after 3 uses or less.  I wasn't expecting a miracle, but a basic "hey, my skin feels kind of better even after washing this stuff off" is what I'm looking for, and didn't get with the UD BB.  And if that makes me elitist and persnickety as well, so be it!

Me too, although now I REALLY want to try Missha.  But the Maybelline is nice.  My biggest complaint with others that I've tried (Garnier, Dr Jarts, and Boscia) is that my face felt so oily and gross-shiny.  Maybelline isn't like that at all.

So where can I buy this Missha without worrying about being sent a fake product? I just can't bring myself to buy beauty products from Amazon. Too many horror stories!

I have used products that I had noticed a difference the next day. It wasn't Crest Whitestrips either. With them I noticed no difference! lol

You can try subscribing to their ML but it took me 4 tries to actually get anything from them. They occassionally will have awesome sales with like 40-50% off their products.

1) Finally resubscribing to Ipsy/ MyGlam- I cancelled pretty much right before the bags started getting awesome (of course). Anyone have any idea how long the wait list is/ what my chances of getting a February bag look like?

 

2) BB Cream- I LOVE the L'oreal Youth Code bb cream. It is a lot thicker than the other American bb's I've tried, and it has actually improved my skin- I've had less breakouts for sure since I've started using it. It's great on it's own for light/ medium coverage, but it also works really well as a primer. Just my two cents!

me too! I wear Mary-Lou Manizer every day as a highlighter and as an eyeshadow with Matt Batali in the crease. I already bought a full size Mary-Lou Manizer and I'm going to have to get the Meet Matt(e) palette because that color is my HG crease color. 

 

More The Balm please!!!

You're my hero.  Just for that.

I haven't used both, but I really like the Skin79 Super+ Gold. It's pretty thick in consistency and gives a medium coverage.  I have very fair skin with a pink undertone. 

 

I ordered direct from Skin79

From what I've read, Missha has more colour options, but if you're pale, then it shouldn't really matter. Asian BB cremes are supposed oxidize to suit your skin tone, so they don't have to match 100% percent.

 

You can purchase SKIN79 online here: http://www.skin79northamerica.com/catalogue I'm not sure what their shipping options are, but Missha is FS at $40 + GWP

I love that as a crease color too.  It scared me at first because I was worried it would be too dark, but it's just the right amount of pigment to make a surprisingly natural looking crease that you can darken with another pass for a dramatic effect as well.  I picked up the palette when they did the half off promo, but I keep going for that color in it anyway.

 

I'm glad to see mattes on trend; I think it's great to pair them with shimmers for a fuller look, and these Balm mattes have been especially great.

Has anyone who usually has allergies to make up tried the hypoallergenic missha BB cream?  I'm tempted, but I usually don't use any kind of foundation or anything since I tend to be allergic and because my skin is very clear and even usually.  It would be nice to have something for the rare days when it isn't, but I'm worried about shelling out so much money for something that might give me a rash.

I was so bummed that I didn't have the funds to order when it was half price. 

 

I like layering it over other colors in the crease too. It's a very versatile color. It would be awesome if the sold them as singles.

I would try buying sample 2ml packs from ebay so you can see if you'll break out. it does cost money but it is better than wasting money on a full sized product that you react to. also it will help you see which shades fit you.

I am very pale with pink undertones. My favorite is Missha M Perfect Cover, and I can wear both #13 and #21 (shades). It has the best coverage, IMO, and leaves my skin nice and even and smooth!

 

Skin79 is nice, too. I've used the hot pink, the pearl, and the lighter pink one so far...I like all of them decently. The pearl has a nice glow, but coverage is less. The hot pink is nice and probably my 2nd favorite BB after Missha. I have the little sample sized tubes of all the Skin79 varieties that I'm currently working through! I don't think any of them have as much coverage as Missha, but all feel nice on the skin.
