Hello my lovelies,
Today I got stood up, so in order to ease my broken heart I went shopping. Cushion foundations have been all the rage in sout-east Asia especially in Korea with popular YouTuber Michelle Phan speaking highly of cushion foundations.
So, I made my way to The Face Shop and picked up the ‘Oil Control Water Cushion’. I am no stranger to The Face Shop and have enjoyed many of their products. Now, let’s get down to business on this foundation.
First of all when I purchased the cushion foundation I was given a refill for free, as part of the promotion they had going on.
The product was very easy to blend on my skin and provided a decent amount of coverage. I applied one layer of the fondation over my face and it did not feel cakey. Throughout the day it did not feel like I was wearing make up and my skin felt very fresh.
The only negative I have for this product is that it makes my face slightly paler than it actually is. This is because of the sunscreen embedded in the formula. I know whiter skin is something that is sought after in Asia, but I felt uncomfortable with a face that was a different shade to my body. However, I can combat the pale complexion it gives to my face by applying bronzer.
An added bonus that comes with shopping at The Face Shop, which I enjoy is all the freebies they give.
Value for money: I paid $31 and managed to get a free refill. 7.5/10
Quality: the coverage was good and I did not need to use a lot of product. However, the product making my skin paler was a let down. 6/10
Thank you for reading and if you guys buy this product let me know how you thought of it!!
