Luckily for me, I have The Face Shop's Power Perfection BB Cream to save the day, and my face. This BB Cream, if you can remember, was sent to me by my husband some two months ago. Marketed as a 'total solution BB cream', the Power Perfection BB Cream is designed to address most skin problems (i.e. roughness, dryness, uneven skin tone) while giving the face a natural, flawless coverage.

|I'd say it matches my skintone perfectly.|
Coverage is pretty good - medium to full, depending on how you'd like to wear it. It has a semi-matte, slightly dewy finish, with a texture that's very lightweight and not icky on the skin.

It has impressive staying power, too - a good ten hours and the BB cream is still sitting pretty on my face. I reckon this BB cream would suit even those with oily skin. And for those with sensitive skin like me, you'd be glad to know that this BB cream gave me no allergies whatsoever.

In Korea, the Power Perfection BB Cream retails for 22900 Won. That's more or less Php 900 when converted. Here in the Philippines, it's priced around Php 1500 (correct me if I'm wrong), which seems pretty fair considering Philippine taxes and shipping from Korea. It's a tad more expensive than Etude House, but still way cheaper than Missha's. And that's a fact. :)
What I love:
Pretty (purple) and sturdy packaging
Excellent shade match
Medium, buildable coverage
A little goes a long way
Light, powdery scent
Semi-matte, slightly dewy finish
Stays on for ten hours at the very least
Safe for sensitive skin

It looks like this will be my last post for the year, so please allow me to indulge in a little self-love. Haha! Here's my last Face of the Day for 2012.
It's been a crazy, beautiful year for me, and I couldn't thank you enough for staying with me for the past 12 months. I am looking forward to yet another wild and wonderful year with all of you.
Happy New Year everyone!
Ever onward to 2013!
