Swatches:

Hera Cushion

Packaging: Elegant purplish-gray compact with a solid white upper cover with a Hera logo on it. (2016 Edition)

Scent: Mild pleasant fresh fragrance (I think this is a signature scent of Hera.)

Consistency: Lightweight cream to liquid.

Verdict: This is by far, BEST-est cushion foundation everrr! Now I know why my friend Anri, who recommended this to me, was totally raving about it. Yes, it is pricey but you really get what you paid for. Hera is one of the luxury skin care and makeup brands in Korea and is mainly known for their iconic cushion and a whole lot more. The cushion has two finish, C is for COVER if you want a more buildable coverage while N is for NUDE which has a Sheer Finish. They both have the brightening and UV protection properties except for the wrinkle care that is only featured in the N- Series. I love EVERYTHING about this cushion. It’s lightweight but really has a great coverage, it evened out my skin tone with just one layer, the satin finish, the fragrance that is so fresh and nice, stays long enough on my face even in humid climate, not sticky, transfer-proof, has a decent oil control, and last, but not the least, my skin has no negative reactions with it. Need I say more? Oh and I remember, this was featured in one of the scenes of the Korean Drama Legend of the Blue Seas starring Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun. Incidentally, she is the latest brand endorser for Hera.
