Hi! I hope I didn’t startled you. As you can see on the photos above, upon initial application the cushion instantly brightened and evened out my skin tone.

Packaging: Glittery compact, sleek and elegant.

Scent: Light soap-y fresh scent, not overpowering and does not linger for a while.

Color: N23 Sand Beige

Consistency: Semi-thick or slightly creamy

Coverage: Medium Buildable

My Thoughts: I honestly have a love and hate relationship with this cushion foundation. At first, I thought that I’ll never like it but thank heavens I was able to find a way to make it work on my skin. Thinking about the price tag! 😑 Whenever I use this, I apply the product carefully, making sure that I won’t layer it too much. I set it with my 3W Clinic Professional Powder using my Real Techniques Duo Fiber Face Brush and gently pat the brush on my T-Zone because I found that it really emphasizes my pores if I sweep the powder all over my face. I also make sure that I will only apply a very minimal amount of powder because it will definitely cake around the sides of my nose. I also sweep some bronzing powder to make sure that my face matches my neck! I got so pressured to add bronzer in my makeup routine because of this so I purchased the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronze.

PROS:

– brightens and evens-out the skin tone

– long-wearing

– buildable coverage

– doesn’t wear like a mask

– packaging is nice and easy to carry around

– did not cause break outs

– smells really amazing

– semi matte finish

– has SPF 50+ PA+++

– comes with a 15g refill

CONS:

– minimal oil control (around 2.5 – 3 hours before the oilies seep through)

– emphasizes pores if you apply too much of the product

– not transfer proof

– a little expensive

– the shade is tad pale

– only available online (Althea Korea)
