Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in No. 31 Golden Beige – Review

Whaa!!! Laptoppie is back and so am I with this picture-heavy review of my first BB Cream!

A few weeks ago, Missha was celebrating the re-launch of their website with a superb deal. A free tube of their famous Perfect Cover BB cream, about 500 tubes a day for a few days (just pay the $8.99 USD shipping cost.)
