Once I found that Missha had released the Perfect Cover BB cream for darker skin, I started buying from the Ebay seller, NewDrSkin, as this was one of the only places to get it. The product was amazing- and frankly does not need another review on the internet. The only problems were the price- a full 50mL size cost me $37 AU a pop as compared to the other lighter shades which cost as little as $12 including shipping! I have no idea why there is still such a steep price difference, seeing as the product has been out for years. The other problem was that shipping from America took over 3 weeks. So it was necessary to plan ahead and order a new one when I had approximately 1/4 of my bottle left.
I was aware that Missha had an Australian website at the time, but the ordering process turned me off- it said the words 'fax your order' and I immediately dismissed the site. I have never faxed anything, let alone have a fax machine! Hence my happiness when the new Missha Australia website was announced! I immediately ordered the Perfect Cover in #27 and it came within the week and cost me $32.90. This also gives me the flexibility to try out other products from Missha- I have my eye on a few products already! Missha is fantastic because most, if not all, of their skin and lip products come with SPF which is incredibly important in Australia's harsh climate- my mother is a skin cancer surgeon, so I am well aware of the dangers of the sun!
There are the next products on my wishlist! I feel a makeup overhaul coming soon. It's great that Asian cosmetics are becoming more readily available in Australia and I'm going to take full advantage of this!
Now, for those of you who are interested in seeing shade #27 on someone's face (it's quite hard to find picture reviews for this shade on the internet), I have taken some scary-ish pictures to show you. This is my face after a breakout and I want to show how well the shade covers and matches my darker Asian skin tone.The only things edited have been the brightness and contrast.
