I know that BB creams are all the rage now, but while I own a lot of BB creams, I don't use them very often. So it takes some time and use until I feel comfortable writing a review about a product that I'm sure I know about well. Thanks for your patience! ^_^
By the way, if you are new to BB creams and want to learn more about them please click here for more information!
I have had both of these BB creams for around 1 year. But I only use them for going out with friends, dates, special events, etc.
Today I will be reviewing the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in No. 27 Honey Beige and FACEit Aqua Tinted BB Cream in No. 02 Natural Beige!
(I will have swatches at the end of this post to compare both BB creams before and after oxidation!!)

What do I think of this product?
So I also saw Bubzbeauty talk about this product and I bought it as well. I bought it in 02 natural beige. This BB cream provides sheer to light coverage. It overall evens and brightens my complexion but it is not for medium to full coverage. A little goes a long way like the Missha and I only need a pea size amount for my face and neck! This is a very hydrating BB cream and great for my dry combination skin. It is also great during the winter when the air is cold and dry. It does not irritate my sensitive skin and does not feel sticky or heavy. It feels so light and so much like my own skin, even more than my Missha Perfect Cover!
Even though I have the color natural beige it is still quite pale, and I only use it when my skin goes back to its normal pale color, otherwise I would look like a ghost! And even though the picture for 02 natural beige looks kind of yellow, it is not that yellow in reality and I will show you swatches in the end as well! After oxidation, personally, I don't think it changes color or darkens at all, so maybe this is good for people who have very very pale skin.
Again, the only problem I have with this product is the fragrance, it has a fragrance, which again, isn't too strong and it does fade, but I would appreciate it more if it didn't have a fragrance. And I don't know if this BB cream causes me to break out, because I don't use it everyday or that often.
Do I recommend this product?
If you do not mind fragrance and you have light to pale skin and you just want to even your complexion, then I recommend this product! Please remember, this BB cream gives sheer coverage, it will balance your complexion and make you look even and brighter such as covering up redness and uneven skin tones, however, if you have a lot of acne or acne scars, this will not be enough coverage for you.
It is not thick or cakey and has a beautiful thin and smooth consistency which will make it feel like your own skin! I usually forget that it is on during the day.
This is great if you have dry skin that especially tends to show up when you put makeup on or if your skin gets dry from the weather or wintery seasons.
Here are my swatches of both kinds of BB creams before and after oxidation. I will point out any details or differences. Please remember that the camera and the lighting plays a part in the color of the BB cream and sometimes show the color incorrectly, so I'm sorry about that. I will point any incorrect colors out, etc.
Here are 4 pictures of swatches before 20 minutes of oxidation:
