[REVIEW] MISSHA M B.B Boomer Primer

Have you ever woken up in the morning and felt like it was going to be a good makeup day? I'm talking a seriously, 12/10, red carpet, Beyonce ain't got the bees knees on me kinda good day where you just want to shout out how great your makeup is (maybe it's just me). Yeah, it's one of the greatest feelings in the world. Then suddenly, the decimation begins. You start to feel your face sweating, and all of your hard morning's work begins to puddle in lumps down your face? Then you thought to yourself, "Man...I really should have used that MISSHA M B.B Boomer Primer that Kiki was talking about." Yup. Don't make that mistake like I did....except someone else was talking about it.

Primers are actually a new thing to me in which I've adopted in my beauty routine within the last year (thank all that is great). In a nut shell, a good primer will keep your makeup in place throughout the day, eliminating shine and greasiness. I've used expensive American products in the past and some other Korean primers as well, but this product takes home the prize for me.

So, it's your lucky day! I've decided to share my glorious discovery with you and describe my experience using this product.

PACKAGING

As you all know by now, I am a huge fan of all things Kawaii and cute. However, it's nice to get something a little more classy and elegant looking once in a while. This packaging is all that and a baseball bat. The outside is actually very sturdy (unlike your standard toothpaste bottle) and very smooth to touch. I love the pink exterior as well.

Of course, the directions and ingredients are in Korean. So, out of the kindness of my heart, I have retrieved the English trasnlation for you.

The container comes with a very sanitary pump. I used about two pumps to get the right amount of product out to cover my face.

MISSHA M B.B BOOMER PRIMER APPLICATION ON LEFT SIDE OF FACE ONLY

Ahhh...the glorious product finally made it onto my face, and I'm happy about it. The consistency is very light and silky smooth. It blends very easily with your skin and leaves your skin slightly lighter and brighter.

It might be difficult to see, but in this photo I have product on only the left side (your right) of my face. If you look closely, you can see the left side of my face is slightly lighter in color and somewhat more moisturized. Also, it seems to have lessened my pore a little bit as well.

PRIMER ONLY ON LEFT WITH ETUDE HOUSE ANY CUSHION FOUNDATION ALL OVER

I added my favorite foundation, Etude House Any Cushion Cream Filler Foundation, so you can see how the primer holds makeup. You could always use another Korean cushion foundation, BB cream, or CC cream, but I honestly can't get enough of this foundation.

I wore my foundation with the primer on half of my face for about 5 hours and noticed that the primer really held on to my makeup and maintained balance for my oily skin. I'll definitely be using this product in the future!
