Missha B.B. Boomer is a BB boosting cream. It's supposed to make your BB cream last longer and make it appear brighter. Initially I thought this was just a regular BB primer. From first application though, I knew that this was no ordinary primer. I don't know exactly how much this retail because this was just given to me but the Missha website says $20.MISSHA says:
Right now I would like to say though that regarding its whitening and wrinkle repairing functions I do not have any opinion. While it did make my skin feel soft and moisturized, I still would use my moisturizer before application because the weather now makes my combination/oily skin dry sometimes. I also recommend using a primer or makeup base if you don't have smooth skin like me. It may seem redundant but the thing about this booster is that it is a sort of highlighter which will cast a spotlight on all those little bumps and holes on your skin.
I really got scared of the sheen effect because of my combination/oily skin but the booster itself does not cause my skin to become oily. It goes on light on my skin and actually makes my skin feel moisturized. I used Missha Matte BB Cream and lightly dusted my face with Bobbi Brown pressed powder. Normally, that combination would cause my skin to appear flat but surprisingly, the dewy/luminescent effect remained. It was almost as if my skin was emitting its own highlight or glow. This was probably because it was underneath the powder.
I also liked that the pearl powder was tinted with a bit of pink/lavender because it greatly complemented my yellow skin tone. For those with darker skin tone, I suggest you try this first as it may be too pale or white. The dewy effect lasted about 5-6 hours on me but my BB cream went on until about 8 hours although I did retouch my powder.

I know I don't necessarily fall under the "who should buy it" category BUT I do love what this does to my skin and with a little effort I know I can rock this on me so I will continue using and loving this booster ;)
