REVIEW: Missha BB Boomer

Missha BB Boomer Review: The BB Cream Primer

I wasn't planning on buying this, but the sales lady talked my mom into it and she gave it to me. This is the Missha BB Boomer. It's supposedly a primer for your BB cream and the sales lady also told me that it has anti-wrinkle properties.

I was super skeptical of this because BB creams are supposed to have primer, powder, and miracle healing powers in it so why would I need a primer on top of that. The SA told me it would hydrate as well and work with my other foundations. Eh why not.

This baby retails for $168 HKD which is roughly $21 USD. Which is a little pricey for primer if you ask me.

On the front of the box it says:
"Boosts the adherence and duration of BB Cream and makes your skin brighter when applied. Its pearl antioxidant and moisturizing ingredient make your skin more radiant while leaving it moisturized.

Containing Moringa, patent ingredient, and Mannan and  Olive ingredients which have an affinity with the skin, It keeps moisture on the skin and creates moisture shield. Containing Adenosine and Arbutin, it improves skin tone and fine lines."

Butylene Glycol
PEG-10 Dimethicone
Titanium Dioxide
Sodium Chloride
Dicaprylyl Carbonate
Quaternium-18 Hectorite
Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer
Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer
Disodium EDTA
Aluminum Hydroxide
Stearic Acid
Chrysanthemum Morifolium Flower Extract
Coral Powder
Diamond Powder
Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Oil
Platinum Powder
Amethyst Powder
Pearl Powder
Alcohol Denat.

The packaging is exactly the same as their signature BB cream only this one is white. It's a 40 ml tube with a pump. i like the packaging because it's easy to get the primer out and you can also control the amount you want.

When the primer is pumped out of the tube. It's a white cream with slight opaqueness to it. If you look closely it also has a shiny iridescence to it. It really reminds me of how a highlight works. Well the same kinda shimmer. 

This is what it looks like slightly spread out. It's super easy to spread and has a creamy almost dry texture to it. The scent is very heavy. Like baby powder. I laughed when I first used it because the SA told me it was unscented (she was def wrong!)

This is what it looks like blended out. You can't really see the full effect of the primer bc the light isn't hitting it just right, but it does remind me of Twilight when the light hits Edward and he sparkles (obviously not as bright) but you get the point.

Over all verdict: I have to start off by saying I have combination skin, so oily t-zones and dry other places. This primer was actually drier for my skin than I thought it would be. It didn't suck up any oils but I did notice dry patches in certain areas.

I've used this with my Missha Signature BB Cream and thought it didn't enhance the BB cream any but it did make it last longer. I actually preferred it without. I've also used this with my MAC Studio Sculpt and it gave me awful dry patches.

I have to say that I've used worse and I've used better. For the expensive price it's not really something that I would say you absolutely need. It might work better for some skin types, but it just dried mine out. I'm prob gonna give this another shot when it gets warmer and see if it works better. 

  • Drying
  • Expensive
  • Might not work with darker skin tones
  • Heavy baby powder smell
  • Not available everywhere

  • Brightens complexion
  • Easy to work with
  • Enhances BB cream life

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
