Brand New Missha BB Cream shade - No. 27 Honey Beige!

View my review and BB Cream comparision with No. 23, No. 27 and No. 31!

Ok, so by now you should all know how much I love my Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream.

Missha is the only brand making a wider variety of shades in BB Cream (for darker skin!) and they've just introduced a new shade, #27 Honey Beige. I'm thinking this may have to be a purchase for me, since #23 is still a little light for me even in Winter months. Lucky for me (and my wallet) they are having a 4 day promo, from today July 20 - July 24 and the BB Cream is only $8.99 + $8.99 shipping & handling ($17.98, which works out way cheaper than any price I've seen for Perfect Cover BB Cream). They also have free shipping for orders over $40, which is pretty great.

Here is the promo email I got:

The offer is limited to one per order.

I'm pretty excited about this (sad, I know) so I had to share :) I'm hoping the other brands (Skin79 etc) will jump on the wagon and release a few darker shades for those of us without milky complexions. I'm interested to see which company will start doing a BB Cream for ladies on the darker end of the colour spectrum, as they have been completely neglected so far. I do give props to Missha for being ahead of the game though.

Do you own any BB Cream? What is your shade, and are you happy to see Missha bringing out darker tones?

NOTE: I am not paid or compensated to share this offer with you. I have not been contacted or asked to post this by PR for the company.

EDIT: Minutes after posting this.... I bought the BB Cream.  Yes, I know.. I have no willpower :) So stay tuned and I will post a review/swatches/FOTD as soon as it comes in the mail!

Manicure Monday: 4th of July edition

Happy 4th of July to all my American readers :) Hope you’re having a great long weekend! We have a lot of BBQing in store for today.

I didn’t have much time to do my nails last night, but I wanted to do a simple but pretty 4th of July inspired mani.

These are the polishes I used:

Unnamed Color Club blue polish, OPI Met On The Internet, Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope.

Forever 21 Haul: accessories & nail polish

Hey Beauties :) Happy Independence Day weekend for my US readers! And I'm informed it's also Canada Day weekend? Not sure about all this, considering I am an Aussie expat :)

I had some time to kill the other day (and only one child!) so I did a bit of shopping in Forever 21.

Here's what I got!

GORGEOUS bronzer, with gold shimmer and a rose imprint $3.80
