What it is:
A semi-matte foundation suspended in a dab-on cushion sponge that combines the fresh and radiant look of a liquid foundation with the practicality of a compact. The ‘Magnet Fit Effect’ and ‘Double Shot Technology’ evens out the skin and conceals imperfections for a flawless finish.
How to apply:
Pick up preferred amount of product with the puff and spread evenly by lightly patting onto the skin.
Shade to review:
The cushion comes in a nude box color and the packaging for this cushion is just like a normal cushion-typed packaging with nude color on top and “Double Lasting” name printed in the front. The color of the cushion packaging is dark navy blue color and the packaging is thin and not bulky. Overall, I like the packaging which is very simple and straightforward.
Inside you will get cushion puff.
I did have a hard time choosing the shade that is suitable for me because all my cushion foundations are mostly ivory or warm neutral tone or in the shade 21(Korean cushion) (I like one tone lighter than my skin tone). I saw that Neutral Beige is a bit dark from Etude House website, so I chose Ivory.
The texture is light, easily melt into the skin and doesn’t look cakey. The puff spread the product very well. It doesn’t feel sticky and the finish isn’t dewy nor matte but in between. After 4 hours application, there’s slightly fading under eyes area but the rest still in a good job. I love dewy cushion typed-finish and most of the time, I don’t set my foundation or cushion with powder, so this foundation gave me the finish that I like. However, this product doesn’t settle very well on dry, bumpy or acne scarred areas. After 8 hours application in Malaysian weather, this cushion worked perfectly fine for me, it faded slightly but not really much.
Okay, let’s try the cushion!
When you applying cushion or any sort of base makeup, make sure to dab the cushion puff all over your face instead of swiping it over. This will make your cushion adhere to the skin and to make the application more evenly. If you feel like you need more coverage, you can go in with a second layer. Always apply a thin layer to avoid looking cakey.
Here is my face with one layer of cushion. Everything seems to have been covered with one layer.
This cushion definitely has medium to high coverage, depending on how many layers you apply. If you have acne scars or bumps, you might need 2 or 3 layers to conceal it.
I had no problems with it since my skin does not have much problem and not dry, the cushion stayed pretty well under Malaysia weather except under my eyes, the cushion faded a little. Plus, it lasted a good 8 hours or more than that depend on what product you use underneath to make the cushion stay long.
The cushion doesn’t have a strong scent to it. If you want me to describe it, the scent just smells like foundation. hihi
