Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion was purchased by Cosmeperks.
Lately COSRX is being very much popular and most raved in Korean beauty products. Personally, their acne treatment products have won my heart since they worked well and effectively on my blemished skin. And also it’s like that COSRX was the first brand which brought me to the Centella Asiatica Extract hype. You know, this ingredient is very good for acne prone skin as its benefits to care inflammation and soothes skin.
Getting more and more popular, and like they know that skincare is not enough, COSRX is coming back with their new product. Now it’s time for their makeup line. It is COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion. This cushion was only available on Style Korean at first, but then it was launched in Korea about weeks ago (I think it should be the first week of this month, cmiiw). And finally I got my baby after waiting more than a week due to accidentally shipping issue.
I was really attracted with the claims this cushion not only works as makeup with its great coverage but also skincare with effective formula for acne prone skin. It contains trendy ingredients like Centella Asiatica Extract, tea tree oil and niacinamide, and also SPF 47 UVB/UVA sunscreen. These things are enough to make my acne prone skin hungry. So, let’s feed my skin and see the result of COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion. Ah, by the way, I got mine in shade #23 – Natural Beige.

Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion | #23 Natural Beige Review:
I usually fall in love easily with cute packaging instead of the simply proffesional one. But then, I didn’t know why, this cushion defeated me. I do love the packaging since it’s very unique and rare compared with other cushions. Well, when saw it on internet my reaction was like “oh, okay…” but after having the cushion in my hand, immediately thought “oh, I love it!!!” LOL.
Start from the outer box. It came with black cardboard and had no special design. The descriptions and directions of the product is clearly written in English and Korean. It’s just like a standard outer box of Korean beauty product.
Now, move to the cushion itself. From this point, I will tell you why I think this cushion is very unique in my attention. This cushion is unlike usual cushion products we met before. COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion came in a square case, it’s very unique yet cute, isn’t it?
This cushion is compact and not bulky though it has square case. It’s made from tough and sturdy material. And it is all in black! Even the product’s name on the front side is written with black glossy letters (makes me a bit hard to capture it with my camera, LOL).
A good thing from the square case is we got a bigger mirror inside. Overall, I will give two thumbs up for the packaging. it looks pro and classy. The simple-monochrome design really matches with the brand COSRX.
I think COSRX made this cushion in unique concept entirely. Even the puff is unique too. It came in grey color. The band is also wide and very handy. I never know other brands have the same puff like this. However, I like the puff since it’s soft, flexible and the quality is good. It helps me to apply the product quickly and evenly.
Once knew the sponge inside, I was so happy because it’s a type of cushion sponge I really like. This cushion is made with ‘mochi’ design. If you are familiar with AprilSkin cushion, I guess you already know this design.
So, Mochi Cushion is like a mochi cake where the foundation is kept in mochi-type sponge bag. It will keep the foundie for not easily drying out and also more hygienic. I didn’t find mochi cushion information on the product claims, I think COSRX should say it because this is actually an interesting product value.
The foundation has a soft minty-herbal scent. People with sensitive nose will like it because the scent is not too strong. Personally, I prefer floral scents but this one is okay for me. The scent will disappear after seconds applied on skin, so it’s not disturbing at all.
Before we go to the foundation quality, let me tell you about the swatches. COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion only has two shades. #21 for Light Beige and #23 for Natural Beige. I browsed some reviews before ordering my cushion and found that shade #21 has yellow base color (I guess it will be too yellow for me), so I went to #23 which has a slight of pinkish tone. This shade matches and blends very naturally on my skin. However, I think it’s better if COSRX add other shades, right?
A light touch on the cushion sponge is enough to take the product out. I suggest you for not pressing too hard on the cushion because the foundation consistency is watery, you will get too much product on your puff if you are too rude, haha.
Since it’s watery, it is also easily to be blended on skin. The texture of the foundie is also creamy and it can create smooth and soft skin after applied. This cushion is weightless like I’m not wearing anything on my skin. Hence I like use it everyday.
Lightweight cushions usually have sheer coverage but COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion is different. The coverage is not disappointing, it’s totally great!
Let the pictures tell you, guys. You can see on the before-after photos that the cushion did its job very well. My skin is in a super bad condition with blemishes and redness like everywhere. With only one layer (I did not apply both primer and concealer too), the cushion covered my skin imperfections perfectly. It also covered some of my pores and made my skin look more subtle and soft. Well, if you still can see some big pores there, I guess it’s just my pores which are truly big, though *cry.
COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion has semi-matte finish on my oily-combination skin. I think it can be more matte on dry skin. As I said that it feels lightweight on skin, we can apply more than a layer if needed, in case you want full killing coverage. But I don’t suggest to apply many layers since it will look cakey and patchy, especially on dry area. However, I think we don’t need to apply many layers, though, haha. The coverage is definitely awesome!
While I do adore the coverage of this cushion, unfortunately the oil control formula is not as great as the coverage. The oil control is so so, even I guess it’s too bad for a matte foundation.
When I do not set it with powder, it takes less than two hours for my skin starting oily (especially on T-zone). When I add powder (I use Innisfree No Sebum Powder), the oil control can held about 3-4 hours. As the weather is now getting crazily hotter in my country, I need more than twice blotting my face during the hot days.
Aside from the disappointing oil control, this cushion can stay more than 8 hours without getting oxidize. It won’t make your face look dull or more greyish after hours. I guess it’s because the shade doesn’t have grey tone in it. I also found that this cushion creased on some of my fine lines under eyes area (my skin under eye is dry). Hence make sure that you prepare your skin well before apply the cushion to avoid creasing result.
As mentioned, this cushion is not only makeup but also skincare (not 100% skincare but at least it’s formulated to care your skin gently) for acne prone skin, I guess it works well enough. I have very very very sensitive skin and so far this product didn’t cause any breakout on my face.
The surprising thing is this cushion makes some of my tiny blemishes dry quicker. It doesn’t work on my big pimples but the formula is enough to tone down the redness around the big pimples. This is a great thing more than I expected before.
I can’t tell you the comparison between COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion and their previous one, Make Me Lovely Cushion since I haven’t tried it yet. But if I had to give a suggestion, I will recommend COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion for you (both for dry and oily skin).
Let’s overlook the less oil control (since I can manage it with powder), this cushion fills any requirements to be my holy grail. The amazing coverage and lightweight texture are the points. The catchy packaging is a bonus, haha. I also love its gentle formula for my sensitive, acne prone skin. I will repurchase it and be happier if COSRX make the refill, so I can get it in more affordable price, haha!
