I HAVE A WRINKLE. My very first. It’s super depressing and I’m freaking out trying to make it disappear. Thankfully, like a year ago I bought the Missha Signature Wrinkle Filler BB Cream. At the time of purchase I was wrinkle-free. God, I miss those days. I decided to get this particular BB cream for three reasons. 1) I had heard it was good for smoothing enlarged pores, 2) I like Missha and 3) How glorious is that bottle? So elegant. And we all know I’m a sucker for great packaging. Anyway, it’s been sitting pretty on my vanity forever, because I’ve always found it a bit too moisturizing for my skin. Then this bitch wrinkle showed up out of nowhere. It’s a sleep wrinkle because I tend to smoosh my cheek against my pillow. I love sleeping, so this sucks. Will this BB cream save the day? Am I turning into a raisin way before my time? Is 28 too young for Botox? I’m such a mess.
Pretty packaging. Elegant yet BLINDING.
Some info and stuff about TORNADO TECHNOLOGY. If that doesn’t make you want to get this product… then you probably don’t like science.
Ingredients. Stop squinting, I have them listed further down.
This has fullerenes!!! I have no idea what those are but Wikipedia does. Thanks Wikipedia. And congratulations fullerenes. You go fullerenes.
As far as I know this comes in two shades–I got #21, the lightest.
Did I mention this bottle is fancy as hell? Look at that detail. Even if you hate it, you’ll love it.
Hygienic pump, which is a definite plus and much appreciated by beauty bloggers everywhere.

This BB Cream is swirled with a white filler that covers pores and fine lines. While foundation is useful for covering up blemishes, it tends to accentuate wrinkles and leave enlarged pores exposed. The Signature Filler BB Cream is formulated to fill imperfections in the texture of your skin for a smooth, even finish. As with all our BB Creams, it gently cares for skin while providing natural coverage.

When I first got this you could see the swirl pretty clearly. However, I’m an awful blogger and didn’t document it in my excitement. So now you get this kinda muddled almost-swirl. Deal with it.
You can see the white more in this shot. The white is the ‘wrinkle-filler’, the beige is the BB cream.
#21 is a good shade for my skin. It has pink/grey undertones, as opposed to the yellow ones I tend to find.
First things first, this BB cream has a SUPER strong scent. Like most Missha products, it’s nice and flowery. However, it lingers. It lingers all day, and if you don’t like scents, you will be a bit miffed. I don’t mind it because I like the smell a lot, but I can definitely see it being overpowering. This has medium coverage–it definitely evens the skintone and and covers minor redness. However, if you have some pretty noticeable acne this isn’t for you. This is a very moisturizing BB cream, and I find that an extra moisturizer isn’t necessary when I wear it. However, if you have oily skin like me, it might not be your cup of tea. The oil control isn’t great, so you’ll get shiny fast–it already has a glowy finish. If you have normal to dry skin, you’ll probably fall in love. It’s long-lasting, but needs to be touched up with powder a lot. If you’re me, anyway. So–does it work on wrinkles?
Nope. But I haven’t been using it long, so maybe it’s a gradual thing rather than instaneous. We shall see. But there it is, in all its glory. My baby sleepwrinkle. Please, no autographs.
I’m REALLY not a selfie person–as a photographer, I prefer to be on the opposite side of the lens. Plus, I hate being in photos. It’s just a thing. I update my Facebook profile pic like once a year. Anyway, I thought it was pertinent to take one now–my last photo as a brunette. Yes, I’m taking the blonde plunge in like a week and a half. Before everyone is like OH LYNSEE DON’T DO IT, YOU WILL LOOK AWFUL AND YOU ARE MAKING A TERRIBLE MISTAKE, just remember that I was born a blonde and remained so the first sixteen years of my life. Dark hair is unnatural for me, even though I do like it. It’ll come back someday I’m certain, but right now I need a long overdue change. Goin’ back to my roots. I also chopped it in preparation since the ends were basically black. Only like 5 inches off, but I feel naked. Also I look a little psychotic. Which is fine, because I feel a little psychotic.
Speaking of selfies, Android-phone users: is there ANY WAY to get the camera to not go on the ‘beauty mode’ by default? It’s not good. Also I can’t imagine dudes appreciate it. And before you say that dudes don’t take many selfies that aren’t ab shots in a bathroom, I met the most annoying guy ever who literally posts like five selfies a day. Like posed senior picture selfies. Fist under chin and all. To quote any recent teenager, ‘omg i just cantt’. Which translates to ‘oh my god I just can’t’ which should not be uttered if you are over 16. Ever. So knock it off. And wake me up when selfie season passes.
Derailed much? I don’t even care. Thus ends my review of Missha Signature Wrinkle Filler BB Cream.
Pros: Moisturizing, good coverage, evens skin tone and smoothing.
Cons: Not great oil control, strong scent, anti-wrinkle effectiveness has yet to be seen.
Final Verdict: Overall I’m happy with this one–it’s a little more moisturizing then I’d normally go for, but that can be a plus in the dry winter months. It covers well and MIGHT fare well against wrinkles and pores, but I haven’t tested it long to see a difference. Will update accordingly, of course. If you want to try it for yourself, you can purchase it at Missha US for $23.80 USD. Other countries can find their respective Missha stores at Missha.net. Or you could check eBay/Amazon, as always.
