Review: Missha Geum Sul Vitalizing BB Cake in No.13

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Missha Geum Sul Vitalizing BB Cake in the shade 13! I waited so long to purchase this product because I have not seen any reviews or swatches, and it cost a whopping $80NZD to purchase from a real life store.
Perfect your base makeup in one step with the Missha Geum sul Vitalizing BB Cake. This bb cream in a compact case covers blemishes and imperfections for an even complexion and shine-free finish. Also provides wrinkle repairing, brightening, and UV blocking benefits.

Contains oriental herbal ingredients for healthy, glowing skin. Complex powder allows for a light yet buildable coverage for a clean, flawless finish. Baby Pixel powder helps control sebum and oil balance in the skin for a smooth, shine-free finish. High adhered lasting polymer and Silky-Lasting Coating powder provides excellent adherence and long lasting benefits.

How to use
After basic skin care, get an appropriate amount onto puff and pat lightly over the face following skin texture.Close case after use to prevent bb cake from drying out.

Even the box this compact comes in is elegant, but the compact itself is absolutely beautiful!
This compact is much like a cushion compact, it has has a mirror, cushion puff and most importantly the product!
This BB Cake is really just a cream compact, this initially made me a little nervous since my slightly oily skin hasn't had a good history with cream products together so far.
This BB Cake is quite soft and silky, it has a thinner texture than a traditional cream compact which is why I guess they call this a BB Cake rather than a cream compact!
I have the shade No.13 and this is not similar to the 13 in the BB Creams! This is definitely on the warm side, and is slightly orange. This does oxidise quite badly on my arm, but it does not on my face (thank goodness!).
There is a cushion puff included with this BB Cake which is actually great quality and surprisingly applies the cake very nicely! It also applies nicely with a brush, though this does sheer the coverage out in comparison to using the cushion puff.
I find the coverage of this BB Cake to be medium, it's easy to build up another layer of product, but it's also easy to sheer it out to a lighter, more natural coverage. The colour looks a lot nicer on my face than it does on my arm!
I really enjoy the way this BB Cake makes my skin look, it's dewy without looking oily and covers my imperfections without making me look too made up.
After a fairly active day, this BB Cake did fade slightly. You can see that the coverage is not quite as flawless after 6 hours and some of my scars are more prominent. It's not the end of the world, but this is not a product that I would reach for if I have a long day ahead of me.
The oil control is quite average, but better than I expected from a cream product. My face isn't melting off or swimming in oil, but it's not exactly controlling any oil my skin is producing.

What I Love
- Beautiful, elegant packaging
- Great shade for Porcelain Princesses on the Warm side (NC10-15)
- Easy to apply and conveniently packaged
- Fantastic medium coverage, easy to build up or sheer out
- Beautiful dewy finish without looking oily 

What I Don't Love
- Fairly expensive
- Does fade slightly throughout the day
- Average oil control
- Must be set with powder otherwise transfers quite a lot 
Final Thoughts
I really like this BB Cake! It applies really well and makes my skin looks really pretty and fresh. If I'm being really picky, I would like it more if it was slightly lighter and didn't fade so much during the days wear, but these things are not enough to stop me from using and liking this product. The gorgeous packaging helps a lot too of course! This is a great base for any Princesses with drier skin, but oily skin Princesses should stay away since this offers very little oil control.

I would definitely recommend the Missha Geum Sul Vitalizing BB Cake to any Princesses looking for a BB Cream Compact that leaves a beautiful dewy finish and comes housed in the most elegant packaging!
