The struggle of finding the perfect match
When it comes to Korean BB creams I always struggle in finding the right shade for me. I am truly in love with Missha perfect cover BB cream and I think that it is absolutely amazing. The only problem I have is finding a shade that works really well. Usually I end up with shade 23 that I mix with other shades to find a match for me. I have tried 27 and 31 mixed with 23 but not with a perfect result. Then I found out that Missha has a nr 25 as well, but it is really hard to find and there aren’t many places they sell it. Missha Baltics is one of those places so I decided to get the shade to compare with others. And maybe I would find my perfect shade.
But NO NO NO I was wrong. The shade 25 did not match me at all. When looking at swatches online sometimes they just seem to be the perfect match, but in real life they are completely off. This depends on what computer of device you are watching the pictures on. So, one can only be sure by testing yourself.

The problem I have with the other shades is that they are either to pale or to gray or to orange. There is really nothing in between.
When I first swatched the shades I really did not see any difference at it might be hard to see on my pictures as well. But there is the tiniest, tiniest difference between the shades. But truly I don’t get why they did a shade 25 so close to 27. There really isn’t anything between 23 and 25 sadly.
So, what I have to do is mix myself and I mix 21 with 25 (which is a great match for me right now)
So, what is the difference between 25 and 27
25 tends to be a tiny bit more yellow and 27 goes more towards orange (or the color of Donald Trump if you need a different mental picture). The weird thing is that in the photo above it actually looks the opposite.
If you are like me, just waiting for that perfect match in shades when it comes to Missha perfect cover BB cream. Just face it will probably never happen.
As you can see on the pictures it is almost impossible to see the different between the shades which makes it really hard to understand why both the shades actually exists.
I am constantly looking for a match trying to mix different shades together.
Missha is by far my favorite BB cream brand. They seem to skip a whole selection of colors in the middle and at the end. But they are also the one with the weirdest selection of shades.
There will also be a post comparing all the shades next to each other.
