HOW TO USE/APPLY
Take content with the puff, apply on the face in the direction of skin texture in a pushing motion, and gently pat to make the application adhere to skin. To increase coverage, apply once more.
Packaging – The pink compact and the holographic typography is so darn pretty!
Coverage – FULL. Yes guys, it’s a full coverage BB cushion. I initially applied too much because I thought it would be light. One push on the sponge is enough to cover the entire face with one full layer. If you have red spots or discolorations, an additional layer can be put on. It has a creamy finish, and does not dry matte. So I recommend setting this with finishing powder of your choice.
Texture – Thicker than most BB cushions I’ve tried, and very moisturizing. Probably because of its serum claims? As seen on my photo, it leaves a dewy finish. Making your skin look bright, healthy and moisturized. I did notice that it slightly emphasized my pores.
Scent – I did not find any distinguishing or offensive fragrance.
Longevity – Lasts a good 6 hours without any retouch. It settles into my lines and pores after an hour, so I have to blend it with my fingers.
Transferability – Contrary to its claims that it’s not sticky, it is. When used on its own , it transfers on my tissue when I wipe after eating, and also on my clothes if I accidentally touch it. So use a SETTING POWDER!
Final Thoughts – The BB Cushion reminds me a lot of my favorite Missha CC Cushion sans the line and pore settling. I love the coverage it can provide and how it makes my skin looks porcelain-like. The packaging is pretty and I’d keep it for future use. I would probably put in refills from other cushions once I run out.
