Swatches:

Laneige BB Cushion
Packaging: Compact case that has a chic 3D prism design. This latest innovation has a much denser cushion. Still, has the dual purpose cover that protects the cushion and serves as a place for the puff.

Scent: Light fresh floral scent.

Consistency: Slightly thick liquid-crème but not heavy when applied.

Verdict: It is, indeed, a love at first use! I have loved the predecessor Laneige BB Pore Cushion but I can say that this latest formulation is the bomb! When Laneige said that this is an incomparably superb, NEW BB Cushion, I absolutely agree with them. I have an oily to combination skin and this product really keeps the oilies at bay but still keeps my skin well hydrated. I use this every day, did not give me any breakouts, was able to make my pores look smaller, evened out my skin tone, and mostly, gave my skin that smooth, glowing effect. I can also tell that it does not budge or melt at all, it lasted me a good 4 – 6 hours sans primer but a whopping 6 – 8 hours when I use a primer. I also love its consistency, it’s much thicker than the first formulation but it’s not hard to blend on your skin as long as you do the recommended technique for application. The scent does not bother me at all as it will quickly go away after a few seconds. The coverage is light to medium but buildable, so you can decide depending on your preference. It doesn’t give that grayish tint that all BB cream users are familiar with. Laneige now offers a wider array of colors, you can choose if you are warm toned or cool toned, though the darker colors are not easily available in the market. By the way, I’m using the shade Neutral 23. My skin color ranges from NC 25 – NC 30 in MAC. Aside from its oil control and pore minimizing prowess, this baby here also has an SPF of 50+ PA+++, another layer of protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays is not bad at all! Overall, this BB cushion is truly a make-up gem and I highly recommend it.

Where to Purchase: I purchased it from AltheaKR for P1,320.00 though prices may vary. You can also check with LANEIGE Official Website.
