HAUL + MINI REVIEW: Missha BB Creams [for DARK SKIN!]

Over the past few months, I have been on the search for a BB cream that would match with my skin color. I have pretty dark skin. I am in shade NC 42 for MAC which makes it difficult when it comes to purchasing a BB cream. BB creams are usually only made for people with light skin tones. BTW if you didn't know what BB cream is, it is a foundation that gives you many benefits. It feels lightweight like a moisturizer, has excellent sun protection, can whiten your skin/scars, and can prevent/fix wrinkles. I came upon a video which I cannot recall where the guru introduced a BB cream that would work for dark skin types but after reading the reviews online, I discovered that people who were above NC 40 were still having  trouble with that BB cream matching their skin color. So, I went to my local Korean cosmetic stores and asked for dark BB creams, and they told me that the only one available costed $60+. So, of course, I did not buy the cream nor bothered to try.

Fortunately, about 2-3 weeks ago, I did research once again about finding the perfect BB cream for me. I came across a few blogs that introduced Missha BB Cream No. 31. I then looked around for reviews and all the reviews were very positive. So of course, I googled that BB cream and was led to the website . I was even fortunate enough to find the website during the time they had their 50% off sale! I snatched the BB creams right away. I also saw an ad that if you buy $40+ , then shipping is free. I searched and searched the website to find something else to buy so my cart could amount to the minimum requirement, yet I had no luck. So, I asked my friend Michelle if she would like to order  anything, and she ended up ordering BB creams as well.

Okay, picture time! Here are the things we purchased:

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream No. 31 $15 (50% off)

Missha BB Deluxe Sampler (Free)

Time Revolution White Care Super Essential Toner $20 (50% off)

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream No. 23 $15 (50% off)

[pic is sideways again =( ]
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream No. 21 $15 (50% off)
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream No. 23 $15 (50% off)

Michelle agreed to make a haul/review/first impressions/demo video with me so here it is below! We had so many bloopers filming this, lol. BTW, both of us were very unhappy with our appearances because we both just came home from the outdoor swapmeet where we spent almost 3 hours at in the blazing sun (there will be a haul!) and I had second day hair which meant disgusting/oily bangs :(

Watch the video to see us do a quick demo/review of the BB creams. In conclusion, we both agree that the BB cream is super lightweight, has medium coverage, blends smoothly/easily, a little bit goes a long way, and was worth the purchase =) We will both re purchase if there is a 50% off sale again, since we're both students, and can't afford to keep buying $30 foundations! But in all honesty, the BB cream did not disappoint me and ended up exceeding my expectations.
