Hello my lovely readers...
This is the most popular cushion at this moment among Indonesian Blogger. I believe if you follow most of Indonesian blogger you might already seen one of them talking about this new cushion from The Face Shop. Even though I know that there are so many review about this particular cushion, but if you have oily skin and always skeptical about Korean Cushion type of bb cream or foundation like me. Then you might want to know what will I say ^^
Couple weeks ago, The Face Shop Indonesia finally launched their Oil Control Water Cushion at Senayan City, Jakarta. Now days, cushion technology become more popular especially due to their easy to use, and travel friendly concept. This is not the first cushion I've ever tried, but so far this is the only cushion I like to use.
Packaging wise, The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion is the same size as the other cushions. With white and silver packaging and nothing written on it except for a small The Face Shop logo on the middle. It simple but yet elegant.
I am not sure if this one is a bb cream or foundation cushion. I would say it's in between. It has the light consistency of a bb cream, but the coverage and lasting power of a foundation. I would say it have medium to full coverage which is impressive because most of Korean cushion usually have sheer coverage. It contains sunblock with SPF 50+ and PA+++, without causing photo flashback. It's not those bb cream that's going to melt after 3 hours of use. I am been using it regularly and it still looks good on me even after 6 hours.
It comes in 2 shades that you can get at The Face Shop Indonesia for about IDR 329.000. If I am not mistaken they currently having a promotion where you can get a free refill.
The shade I got is Natural Beige (V203). It match my NC 25 skin tone perfectly. The color have yellow undertone so If you are Asian, I believe you could easily get the shade that works good on you.
I won't bother try to explain to you about the packaging. You know the drill about cushion packaging. It always comes with a sponge soaked with the liquid product and an applicator that stored above the lid, that covering the sponge. One thing I love about this Water Cushion from The Face Shop is the applicator. Somehow it's slightly different compare to the other cushion I tried. It has a very soft sponge surface. The Face Shop called it as Microfoam. Microfoam made from a fine foam with high-density cells. It makes application become easy, smooth and didn't cause cakey face.
During application, I suggest you to apply it section by section. Start from left cheek, to right cheek, to the chin and lips area and last is on the forehead area. It much easier using cushion that way to archive even skin tone.
As you can see from this picture bellow, it does cover my acne scar and even out my skin tone. Please excuse the light changes. It still have slightly dewy finish. I found my skin looks dewy and glowy, which is a signature style for Korean Makeup. If you have dry skin than you don't need extra powder. For me, I still prefer to set it with a loose powder.
Overall, I really love this product. I tried some cushion foundation from big brand name before, but this is so far the best cushion that match my skin needs. If you have oily skin like me, and you want a good coverage of foundation than I highly recommended this one. People with dry skin might find this cushion too matte, but people with oily to combination skin will looks good using it even after 6 hours. But if your skin is super oily, it might not enough to control your oiliness.
