Review on Laneige BB Cushion
Having heard many good things about Laneige's BB Cushion before, I decided to give it a shot. It claims to have 6 effects with just one product alone - whitening, moisturising, water resistant, sunblock, soothing and makeup coverage, hence I was intrigued.
Determined to test if it is really as good as it proposes to be, I decided to get one to try. At SGD$59.90, the box comes with one compact and an extra refill, so it is rather affordable.
I got Shade #23, Natural Beige. Actually it was exciting to see how this magic "cushion" form BB foundation works.
So it was just a taut sponge with a dark blue face, which we would use to dab against the moist cushion, so we get some of the BB foundation transformed to the sponge.
Apply the tainted side of the sponge to the face - amazingly, there is a cooling sensation when the BB-stained sponge comes into contact with the skin. A couple more dabs of the BB foundation and sweep over the face, and it was complete- it was a smooth and easy application.
This is how it looks like after brushing on some loose powder - smooth, soft and radiant. However, the BB foundation turns oily very quickly, within a matter of couple of hours. One may require touching up or some very matted loose powder / setting powder to keep it from shining.
