I’ve talked about this new type of BB Creams which incoporates both a BB Cream + Makeup Base all in one ( read article : here )
- Mizon Multi Capsule Changing BB Cream
Lavender purple/Olive green
*Multi functional Blemish Balm with lightly tinted natural coverage
*Makeup base + Blemish Balm + Sun block (SPF32 PA++) + Moisturizing skin care
Gives full coverage to help minimize the appearance of imperfections. The natural pigment capsules pop and change their color to blend with the natural skin tone. It provides everyday SPF protection with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 35. It is certified multi functional blemish balm for blemish lightening and repairing.
1. Makeup base to B.B. cream
The cover of the capsules (lavender purple or olive green) gives a makeup base function that makes skin tone evenly and make up large pores.
When the capsules are popped, the micro B.B. capsules blend in skin providing smooth natural skin look.
2. Protects skin
Provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays, and protects sensitive skin from pollution by forming a film barrier over skin.
3. Anti wrinkle skin care
The formula contains various skin firming ingredients such as adenosine, arbutin, beta glucan, bio saccharidegum-1, and tocopheryl acetate.
4. Lightweight elastic texture
Lightweight non-greasy formula dries to a matte finish. Elastic cream adheres to skin tightly and blends in skin naturally.
5. Lavender purple & Olive green, 2 color choices
Each makeup base with different colors works differently depending on skin tone.
Lavender purple corrects dull skin evenly.
Olive green corrects light flushed skin tone.
Apply a proper amount to at the first step of make up in order of forehead, nose, and chin. Spread smoothly. Finish by wrapping with warm hands for complete absorption.

- Chosungah Raw Tone Up Tint Recipe
To be mixed together with their ‘celebrity cream’ the Chosungah End Cream or the Chosungah Dayshu Cream. Comes in 3 colours. Mix them in a 3 (cream) to 1 (base) ratio. !
The Mizon BB packaging is the first i’ve seen of this type. It comes in a airless pump bottle which you can easily see the amount that has been used. When you first purchase the product, the pump is suppose to be clear. As you pump to dispense the BB, the BB comes up to the top of the pump and fills it up. Another special thing about this bottle is the opening. It is actually protected and closed! This is to protect air from going in to oxidize the product as well as for hygiene purposes! Very nice thoughtful packaging though it can be a little more refine from the design aspect.
The Chosungah BB comes in three small tubes and a nice looking box which makes it very convenient to carry around. No complains about the packaging. It looks nice!
Shade & Texture
- Mizon Multi Capsule Changing B.B. Cream
In terms of shade, the purple base is whiter compared to the green base which is more tinted to the skin colour. The purple shade was a more pinkish-whitish undertone compared to the green. They both have a creamy texture, but not balmy like BB creams. The texture is rather thick therefore it is not very spreadable. You can definitely feel the grainy capsules when you rub the BB Cream. The only problem i have is the application of the cream. Because the BB Cream needs to be rubbed for the tint to appear, i did not know whether to apply it directly on my face or to rub it on the back of the skin first. If i rubbed it on the back of my skin first, there won’t be much BB cream left to apply on my face because they’ve blended in with the skin of my hands. If i apply it on my face first, i fear that it will be too white and the tint will be distributed unevenly.
After playing with it for a while, the best way was to apply it directly on one spot of your face, rub it until it becomes tinted, only then you start spreading it to your entire face. It is moisturizing, isn’t drying at all and makes the skin really nice, smooth, and hydrated. It gives a semi-matte, semi-dewy finish. You have to put in extra effort with this BB Base because if not done properly, it will look unnatural and whitish on your skin. You definitely need to heat your hands up and wipe it across your face with your warm palms so that it blends in with your skin to look natural. It is worth all the extra effort because it makes you look kind of flawless after that.
There is also a slight problem with this BB Cream. It looks flawless and natural under natural light, even better under yellow light, but when using flash, you will definitely look a little more pale and white than usual. So if you’re going to be taking photos with flash, use another BB Cream!
- Chosungah Raw Tone Up Tint Recipe.
I don’t think you can use this BB Cream on it’s own. Just look at the shade! It’s totally horrible and reminds me of the Dr Brandt BB Cream or the Dior Hydra Life BB Cream except worse! The more you rub the BB Cream, the darker it becomes. If you want to use this on it’s own – when u feel that the shade is close to yours, stop rubbing and pat the BB over your face. This BB gives a dewy finish. In terms of texture, this one wins hands down. It’s really nice, light and moist !
So i followed the instructions to use a 1:3 ratio with the dayshu cream ( 1 for the BB 3 for the dayshu ).
Even with the Dayshu Cream, it still gives that orangey tan! So… instead i tried using the Mizon with the Dayshu Cream to see how it compares.
Right : Mizon Left : Chosungah Raw
As you can see, the Dayshu works much better with the Mizon to give a natural dewy radiant look!
As the Chosungah Raw BB Base was such a failure, i will not be covering it in the other section below.
I didn’t expect much from the Mizon BB Base, but the coverage was really above average! Look at how it managed to cover up my veins. You will definitely have to be careful when blending this BB Cream, because if not blended enough it is going to look whitish on your skin! Coverage is really great. The Green Base has a a higher coverage. If you have lots of acne scars, go for the green one!
Will the green base really even out redness? Seems like it below :

Water Test / Adherence
Excellent! This BB Cream doesn’t melt when in contact with water. It adheres to the skin tightly to give you long lasting coverage! I applied the BB Cream on the pack of my hand, put it under running water, and used a tissue to pat and wipe the back of my hand. Not even a trace of BB Cream on the tissue!
The the BB Creams including the Chosungah Raw had little oil content. They definitely don’t have oil control properties so don’t expect anything from them, but they won’t make you look like an oil barrel too. Just touch up with powder if you are concern !
The ingredient list is… nothing to shout about.
Don’t get the Chosungah Tint Up Product.
I didn’t have much expectations for the Mizon BB Cream so it was a good surprise. It has a good coverage, excellent adherence, has SPF 32, and has whitening and anti wrinkle ingredients in it. Like i said, the only concern is that it might look too white if not blended properly, and will look a little pale under flash. The shade might also only work for those with fairer skin as it may look too white or fair on those with darker skin.
I have a feeling that this product will probably be similar to their new product , the Mizon Correct Combo Cream ( article found : here ) which also features the colour capsules. The second thing that can be improved is the texture which i mentioned. If the ne
w Mizon Correct Combo Cream has a moist creamy texture, it will probably be the perfect product ! However, the positive thing about this BB Cream is that it mixes well with creams so you can add your daily moisturizer, highlighter, or the Chosungah Dayshu Cream which works well with anything – to give it a more creamy spreadable texture so application can be easier! The addition of a cream might also take away that white cast it can give and makes it look more natural !
If you do not have any redness, acne, or acne red scars – go for the purple one. It brightens up the tone and less a more natural coverage compared to the green one which has a heavier coverage. Have you tried this product ? Share it with us below !
