Review: Missha Perfect Cover #27 *New Shade

Best Blogger Tips

After 2 months, my Missha Perfect Cover #27 has finally arrived! 


Last July, Missha introduced a new shade in their Perfect Cover line, #27 Honey Beige. To date, Missha Perfect Cover now comes in 5 shades: 

#13 Milky Beige
#21 Light Beige
#23 Natural Beige
#27 Honey Beige
#31 Golden Beige

For the longest time now, I have been using #23 Natural Beige. Read my review here. Although it is a tad too light for my skintone, I still prefer it over #31 because Golden Beige (#31) is just waaay too dark. Missha got it right by introducing a shade between #23 & #31. 

MISSHA PERFECT COVER #27 HONEY BEIGE

Here's a comparison between #23 & #27: 



The major difference in the two is that #27 is yellow toned while #23 has a grey tone to it. For an NC35 (NC40 in the summer) like me, #23 is just way too light. However, as my skin tends to oxidize, #23 just blends with my skintone after about an hour or two. 

#27 on the other hand is about a 90% match with my skin tone. One of the letdowns though is that it's a bit too yellow for my olive skin. By applying just the right amount of bb cream and when blended really well however, the yellow tone almost goes unnoticed. This did not oxidize on my skin so i have no problems with it getting too dark a few hours after use.

Ironically, both #23 and #27 matches my skin well. The only difference being that #27 is slightly yellow/golden toned so it's a better match on me than #23.

Here's my shade guide for the Missha shades: 

#13 Milky Beige (For NC 15-20)
#21 Light Beige (For NC 20-25)
#23 Natural Beige (For NC 25-35)
#27 Honey Beige (For NC 35-40)
#31 Golden Beige (For NC 40-45)

The catch here loves is that the shade #27 is sold only in the US. This is not available in the Philippines and in Korea. I got mine at a pre-order at My Little Shop which explains why i had to wait 2 months. Damage is P1,450.00 for a 50ml tube. It is more expensive than the other shades (only about P900+ for a 50ml tube in ebay and other online shops) because it is sold only in the US. Missha US is more expensive than Missha Korea (where most online shops source their Missha from). Missha in Korea is really cheap.

If you're between NC 35-40, this shade is a must try!

  1. I've been searching for the exact shade! I can't find a reseller!:(

    Btw, I was able to talk to the CEO of Missha Philippines, (wow you'd be surprised that yes, the CEO herself is the one who is handling mostly their customer service), Missha #27 is actually available in Manila! P1600 / 50ml. I think that's good enough compared to waiting for like forever when bought from US.

    I've been meaning to buy one, but I can't bring myself to splurge 1600 for just a bb cream esp if i know that it will expire before i get to finish it! been using the 20ml tube for more than 6 months already and i still have it with me!


    LOVE YOUR BLOG! GOT REALLY GREAT REVIEWS THAT I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A LONG TIME!

    KEEP IT UP!

    -------> BTW SIS, THERE'S A BUG IN YOUR COMMENT SECTION, I CAN'T INPUT THE CAPTCHA WORDS BECAUSE IT'S HIDDEN (SOMETHING'S WRONG WITH THIS LAYOUT), I HAD TO USE THE 'inspect element' FEATURE FROM GOOGLE CHROME AND PLAY WITH THE CODES SO THAT I CAN TYPE THE WORD! :( I TRIED USING MOZILLA FIREFOX AS WELL, SAME THING. UNFORTUNATELY I DON'T HAVE IE IN MY LAPTOP.

  2. @Anonymous: It's great to hear that Missha#27 is finally available in the Philippines! I think the shade really suits most Filipina skintones so it'll be such a waste if it won't be sold here. My last 50ml tube lasted me 7 mos i think. I use more than just a pea size amount for my entire face and neck. Do they only have it in 50ml? I hope they'll have the 20ml soon.

    Thanks for the tip regarding my comment section. I'll look into this. and thanks for reading my blog!

  7. Hi there, I found the Missha 27 from this website: www.yesstyle.co.uk.it's £12.90, but I am not sure how much postage would cost, or if after conversion, it would be cheaper if you can buy it in the Phillipines rather than order it online...really tough to find something which suits....there are more pink/grey based ones than yellow based around!
