Review: Missha's Signature Complete BB Cream

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about Missha's Signature Complete BB Cream, in the shade No.13, Milky Beige! This review is going to be extremely similar to the Missha Perfect Cover Bb Cream review, because, well, they are just very similar!
I bought this straight from the Missha store in Auckland way back before I knew the joys of online shopping! This is the first products that I felt I HAD TO HAVE. I'm sure you guys are well aware of that feeling when you test or try something and instantly just have to buy it. It cost me an arm and a leg at $45 (yes I'm aware I can buy it for $20 online) but in my opinion it was totally worth it a year ago, and I would still pay $45 for another one today!
The colour is almost identical to the Missha Perfect Cover Bb Cream. For a side by side comparison check out my BB Cream Swatch-a-thon! says;

Signature Complete BB Cream

A premium line of BB Cream that contains Skin Lipid that soothes and stays with perfect coverage effect and UV protection (SPF25 PA++)
+ Whitening + Wrinkle cure functions.

  Skin Friendly Ingredient
A skin friendly ingredients, Skin Lipid and peptided Amino Acid Complex strengthen skin's natural moisturizing fact (NMF) and balancing oil and moisture of the skin. 

Perfect Coverage for 12 Hrs
Fine particles created by Micro multi rolling grinding technology and skin melting botanical ingredients perfectly adheres to the skin. Keeps the even skin tone for up to 12 hours and perfectly covers blemishes and flaw in light application.

Less Irritation Contains organic Natural heeling complex certifued by ECO-CERT of Europe and free of 7 harmful factors to less irritate the skin.

Moisturized base makeup
Contains skin regenerating Peptide complex, skin soothing anti oxidant Ginko leaf water and other 50 botanical complex to provide abundant moisture and nutrition to skin.

Fantastic! It's very buildable and not too heavy (mask-like) nor too light (tinted moisturizer). If I wore concealer on my blemishes you wouldn't be able to see them at all, but for review purposes I just used the BB Cream. It does have a dewy finish, but when finished with a translucent powder it doesn't look oily, but does maintain the glowy look.  

It's a pretty neutral colour which is great! No.13 is the palest shade Missha make and it's a good match for me.


The texture isn't super thin, or super thick and spreads out easily. If I want light coverage I can use my fingers, or I can use a brush for heavier coverage. It has such a lovely, easy to work with texture
   Oil Control
Not too bad! It does tend to get a little oily around my nose, but my chin and forehead are just fine. It definitely has a glowy/dewy finish, so be aware that if you don't want to look too dewy you will need a finishing powder.

Very much like sunscreen! Since I quite like the sunscreen scent this doesn't bother me at all.

  Lasting Power

Good! The colour doesn't oxidize too much and it doesn't really wear off. Because of the dewy finish it does tend to get a little oily around my nose after 5 hours, but this is easily fixed with blotting paper and translucent powder.
Does it do what's promised?

I'm very skeptical about the Perfect Coverage for 12 hours claim. I've worn it for 12 hours, and although it does degrade slower than regular foundations, it is far from perfect! I haven't seen any whitening of my skin or any of the claimed anti-aging, but it does provide great coverage!

Things I Love
  Good coverage
Decent oil control and lasting power
Easy to apply 

Glowy finish without being too oily
 Pale enough for my skin tone
SPF and PA++
Pleasant Scent 
Makes my skin feel great!

Things I don't Love  

Ever so slightly pink toned
Mid range price (not dirt cheap)
Not available locally 

Final Thoughts 
I absolutely adore my Missha BB Creams! Finally there is a BB Cream that is pale enough for me to wear without looking like I've had an accidental spray tan on my face (I kid you not, someone asked me if I had spray tanned my face once) I love that the finish is glowy without being too oily. I would happily pay $40 for another bottle after I finish this one! 

If you're wondering why the Missha Perfect Cover Bb Cream review and the Missha Signature Complete review are so similar, it's because they really are very similar products! They are so similar, I think I may have to do a side by side comparison and review! What do you princesses think?


  1. Love the hoodie. xD So cute.

    I don't know why, but I find the samples I've had of this BB cream have been off putting. I love Missha Perfect Cover, but Signature Complete looks grainier on my skin. o.o

  2. The coverage looks amazing!! I really wish Missha wouldn't make the BB cream pink toned though because I feel like it would enhance the natural redness so when you do blush (or get red, or whatever), it just becomes more obvious u_u Thanks for the review!

  3. Maybe you tried the Perfect Cover, because the M Signature in shade 13 is neutral. As a matter of fact, If it was pink toned I wouldn't have been able to use it as my skin is extremely pale (creamy white) but it has a warm undertone to it.
    Anyway, as it's a pretty cheap product (buy it directly from Korea on Ebay) you can always purchase the little tubes to mix 13 and 23 and get the perfect match.

    1. Hi sweetie!

      Nope, I'm pretty certain I tried both the Signature Complete and the Perfect Cover, as I have reviews and comparisons on both! ^.^

      In comparison to my favorite pale products - Nars Sheer Glow in Sibera and NYX stay matte but not flat in Ivory - both of my Missha BB Creams are definitely not as warm toned, but rather a neutral to cool toned.

      Hope this helps!

  4. I tried Siberia as a tester (now it's not even available anymore here in Milan) but it's a bit too yellowish for me, Nyx I haven't tried though.
    My redhead skin might just be too ghostly pale for them... T o T

  5. ahh sounds amazing! My auntie recently gifted this to me and ran across your review when trying looking up reviews for it :)

  6. You are pale yellow toned. My question is how do you get away wearing this BB cream. Because I also am very pale and yellow toned. I find this one pulls more pink on me then yellow!

    1. Oh it definitely looks slightly pink on me, but I just ignore it. It's so hard to get a good match in pale shades!

  7. Hi there! I know this is an old review but I've been looking for an alternative for the perfect cover bb in #13, which is a perfect match for me but sadly it emphasizes dry patches. Do you think this bb is more moisturizing than the perfect cover or are they similar? Or would you say that the skin79 green bb cream is more moisturizing?

    Thank you so much for your help in advance!

    1. I have this exact same problem. I love the color so much but after a few hours my skin is visibly cracking/flaking. Let me know if you find a good one.
