Heiho, girls! First of all, welcome to my blog 😀 I realised that people always looked for the easy-to-read makeup and skincare reviews, hence my writing style. So… get ready with me! My first review EVER (yay) is going to be my favourite makeup base for now: LANEIGE Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50 PA+++ I won this from the Lizzie Parra giveaway event; and yes, that was my first giveaway winning ever. I claimed the No. 21 Natural Beige shade. Let’s get started, shall we?
First of all, what is BB Cushion? Is it the same as the BB cream? It is actually quite the same, but it provides more moisture. This BB Cushion came up with a pretty decent package: cute, but not childish. There’s also a mirror inside it which makes it easier to be used anywhere! And the best thing there is: the refill AND the new air puff came along with the main product! Therefore you don’t have to buy them separately; unlike the Etude House’s ones. A pact of cushion contains 15g of the BB cream, thus you can get 30g of product in 1 package.
Its claims: Whitening, Sunscreen, Sweat-proof, Soothing, Makeup Effects I just wore it yesterday, so the air puff isn’t really clean. Don’t get me wrong, I washed it after every 3 times of usage! How to apply:
- Press the air puff lightly to the cushion puff
- The product is a lil bit ‘fluidy’, so put it on your face before it dries!
- Close the cushion lid immediately after usage so that the product wouldn’t dried up.
They call it a cushion air puff because it is different from any other powder puffs; lighter than the usual powder puffs and not as soft. When you wash them and pressed them lightly to drain them up, the water will emerge in the form of small drops. It’s kinda weird and cute at the same time.
When being applied, the texture of the BB liquid was very very light. It can be easily blended onto my skin and end up in a natural finish. Since my skin is a combination of oily and dry (my nose is the worst! Sometimes it could be oily but the dry flakes were there!), the BB cushion did a pretty great job on the oil control while moistening my skin at the same time. My pores are being covered as well 🙂 It is quite long-lasting: 8 hours of usage and it oxidise afterwards. Since it has a quite large amount of SPF, this product is perfect to be used by women who always have to get outside everyday, like me 😀 On the downside, I always needed a concealer to conceal my red side of the nose and some of my small blemishes but Korean products rarely came with a high coverage. It does, however, cover the redness of my face (I just exercised and took a bath ._.). So this might not be the best one for me, but this has been the best one I’ve ever tried 😀 To sum up: Score: 4.5/5 Counter Price: IDR 430,000 or about US$32 (I know, I hate the taxes and customs too) Pros:
- Natural finish
- Not thick at all
- Great for everyday use because of the large SPF amount
- Long-wearing because of its sweat-proof feature
- Quite expensive for 30g of makeup base
- Too large to be brought everywhere
