Swatch & Thoughts

The Powder cushion formula is seamless and non-patchy even though it is supposed to give a matte finish. It also has a non-greasy, light and powdery finish. As its name suggests, there really isn’t any need for loose powder application after this cushion. (This is quite unique because most matte-finish cushions usually feel heavy and thick 🙂 ) The coverage is medium range, but definitely buildable. 🌟However, I do realise that for better and more flawless results, you might wanna use a primer before application of this cushion 😋

The only concern is that I have really dry skin 😨 so this cushion might not be suitable for my skin-type. It might suit girls with oily skin instead! So, if you are a dry-skin girl like me, then maybe you might wanna consider using the Watery cushion instead! 

The Watery cushion formula does feel light and dewy. Since I have dry skin, I feel like this could stay on my skin better. It feels hydrating too~ 💦 BUT, this isn’t overly dewy like other Korean Cushions – Laneige Whitening BB Cushion / Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect … Instead, this is a very mild dewy-finish which mimics healthy radiant skin. 

Similar to the powder cushion, this watery cushion has medium coverage that is buildable to high coverage~ I’m all about that Korean dewy skin and youthful radiant look, so I’m definitely gonna love this formula better! 😜

Here are some swatches~ I’m thinking about doing a DEMO on youtube, would you like to see it? 🙂 Stay tuned!
