CLIO Big Aurora Glowing Cushion 02 Lingerie Review:

I’m not a cushion-person so I rarely use cushion foundation for my daily makeup because I find most of cushions don’t last on my oily-combination skin. I do have several cushions that I really love but it is very hard to find one that won’t make my skin looks like a mess.

I notice that usually cushion with skincare suit me the most then CLIO released their new cushion called Big Aurora Glowing Cushion and I can’t help but want to try it so bad since their claim is too good to pass on. CLIO describes it as a cushion that fills wrinkle and pores, makes voluminous skin, and contain Peptide Volume Essence in it. I’m not sure what is Peptide Volume Essence but as long as it has essence in it, then I need to try it.

For the shade range, it’s quite disappointing because they only has 3 shades to choose from. Usually CLIO has more than 3 shades so I’m not sure why they decided to only make this cushion in 3 shades only. There’s almost no deep and fair shade as the lightest shade is a tad darker than my skin tone and the deepest shade is not dark enough for deep skin tone.

[REVIEW] VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review:

If you read my review about VT X BTS Black Collagen Pact, you probably know how much I love the product. Simply, since I’ve tried that foundation, I started to be a big fan of VT Cosmetics. I was attracted to try more, especially their base makeup. And one product that I kept eyeing was their Cica Redness Cover Cushion (seriously, I was like seeing my bias photo everytime I saw this product on my IG’s feeds, lol). And I finally got my cushion about a month ago, so I think I am good enough to write this review for you. They have 3 shades and I purchased the darkest one, number 23 (Natural Beige). The others are number 13 (Vanilla Beige) and 21 (Light Beige).

Ah, in case you haven’t known yet, VT Cosmetics launched Cica X Care line in the middle of 2018. This line consists of skincare and makeup products that have Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica) as their main ingredients. You know, this ingredient got very popular recently as it is able to treat acne and sensitive skin very well.

Aside from the main ingredient that would be perfect for my sensitive and acne prone skin, there was also another thing that intrigued me to try this cushion. A thing that makes this cushion looks very unique. What’s that? Mmm, keep reading please!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla

Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla Review

Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla was purchased by Cosmeperks.

We all know that Korea makes some of the best cushions, whether it’s a sponge cushion, mesh cushion, or even a pact type of cushion. Even some luxury brand like YSL and Lancome make their cushion foundations in Korea. Until these days, cushion is still really popular because of its practicality and most of them have dewy finish which make our skin looks twice healthier and better in real life.

I’m not a huge fan of sponge cushion because somehow that type of cushion often break apart on my oily-combination skin faster than any other foundations but I do love mesh and pact cushion! They usually stay longer on me and they don’t emphasis my skin texture.

One day, Nigama offered me to try the newest cushion from Etude, the Skin Glow Essence Cushion and I’m pretty excited to see that it has a mesh type. It also contains essence and I really love base product with skincare in it (until now the Double Lasting Serum Foundation is still in list of my favorite foundations).

It’s a new product from Etude so you may have a bit difficulty in finding this product but no worry, there are some well-known online stores who ship internationally or you can get it directly from Etude House global official website.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Peripera Inklasting Cover Foundation 01 Ivory SPF 30 PA+++

Peripera Inklasting Cover Foundation 01 Ivory Review

Peripera Inklasting Cover Foundation 01 Ivory Review:

If you ever read my review on Peripera’s Ink Blurring Skin Tint, then you know that I’m a big fan of that product. Until now, the Skin Tint is still in the list of my favorite foundations so I was really excited when I saw Peripera launched another foundation for their Ink family, this time called as ‘Ink Cover Foundation’.

If I read it right, the Ink Cover has more coverage than their previous two foundations (Skin Tint and Ink Foundation) thus the name along with improved quality. I bought it immediately when one of my trusted online shop open a pre-order for this foundation. But I was really impressed on how Peripera keeps releasing product after product.

As always, it’s only available in 3 shades. I don’t think they will ever make another shades (like Etude or Clio) but I hope one day they will make a tons of other shades since they are really popular and have so many international customers worldwide.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] VT Cosmetics BTS Collagen Pact BLACK 21

VT Cosmetics BTS Collagen Pact BLACK 21 Review

VT Cosmetics BTS Collagen Pact BLACK 21 Review:

It is not a new product but still be a best seller item on VT’s website. Hence, I guess it’s not too late to write this review now (though VT had just released other makeup collections last month, hehe). I think you already knew this product too. Yess, VT X BTS Collagen Pact (Black). A product that became crazily popular because it collaborated with BTS (Bangtan Boys), a South Korean boy band.

I didn’t notice this product because I was not familiar with VT Cosmetics (and I’m not an ARMY too). Moreover, in my country, this product is famous with its nickname ‘BTS Cushion’ (ha?!). I’m not sure what you call it in your country, but most of my friends call it BTS Cushion. Thus, I thought it’s just an usual bb cushion. But once I, accidentally, watched a video on YouTube and found out that it is a COLLAGEN pact, I immediately hunted it! Because I love collagen!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Innisfree My Foundation Glow 3.1 C13

Innisfree My Foundation Glow 3.1 C13 Review

Innisfree My Foundation Glow 3.1 C13 Review:

My Foundation is a latest foundation from Innisfree. With such a simple name, I think it makes me more curious and want to try especially because of the unique shade numeration. If you notice, each foundation has different numbers (e.g : 3.1, 2.5, 1.3, etc) and from what I read from Innisfree website, it is a custom foundation so a lot of skin types can try this foundation.

With this shades range, personally I think this is a huge innovation especially from a Korean brand (which is famous for their limited shade range). I’m happy to see this foundation on my local Innisfree store so I got to swatch the shade first before purchasing it.

From what the personal assistant told me, the first number shows the foundation finish. 1 means Matte, 2 means Semi-matte, and 3 means Glow. The second number shows the coverage level, 1 being the lightest and 5 being the fullest.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2018 Etude House Double Lasting SERUM Foundation SPF25/PA++ N02 Pure

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation SPF25PA N02 Pure Review

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation was purchased by Cosmeperks.

About 2 years ago, Etude House released a foundation called Double Lasting Foundation which became really popular both in Korea and overseas. Etude must have noticed how popular their foundation was and finally change the entire shade range and adding several new shades in the collection for their international customers. I bought it as well and I have to say that it maybe the best foundation Etude House has ever made so I’m pretty excited to see finally they came with a new version!

From Etude House global website, I can see that the Double Lasting Serum Foundation has similar shade range to the original one. Both have 12 shades in 3 different undertones. I really appreciate how Etude House starts to make more shades so most of their customers can try and enjoy their product too.

The hype for the new Double Lasting Serum Foundation is really huge but it’s hard for me to find because there’s no seller has it on stock and Nigama so nice for letting me to join a pre-order for this foundation. I thought it’ll take 7 to 10 days but I only have to wait for 4 days! Kudos for that seller for sending the package really fast.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review:

Moonshot is a brand I’ve always been interested in due to its chic, sleek and often minimalist aesthetic. If I remember correctly, I first heard of the brand due to its popular Jelly Pots, which were raved about by various beauty bloggers a few years back. However, due to scarcity in local stores (I often prefer to swatch makeup products beforehand) and their products’ often mid-high price tag, I eventually just shrugged the urge off.

However, when a flagship Moonshot store opened up locally and later held a number of products on sale, I decided to give in and ended up getting myself one of their cushions as I was coincidentally running out of base makeup. So, how did the Microfit Cushion – or also known as the “GD/G-Dragon Cushion” hold up in humid climate?

[REVIEW] Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain

Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain Review

Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain Review:

Mamonde is one of the most well-known Korean beauty brands internationally. Thanks to their brand ambassador Park Shin Hye years ago, their lip tints were hyped and sold out almost everywhere and their cushions were famous as well. I never tried any of their complexion product so I was intrigued when I heard they launched a new foundation.

All Stay Foundation is the latest foundation from Mamonde and I think they release it last May (I’m not too sure so don’t count me on it). I was browsing and searching for information about this product and from what I found, a lot of Korean beauty bloggers had tried it and their reviews were mix. Some said it was their favorite foundation while others said it wasn’t worth the money.

Regardless of the mix reactions, this foundation was picked by Allure Korea as their foundation of the month so I decided to purchase it and try it myself. One thing I love was they have 6 shades in total which pretty rare for a Korean foundation! Unfortunately while the fairest shade is perfect for my fair complexion, the darkest shade are not deep enough for deeper skin tone. I can say the darkest shade will suit medium-tan skin tone the best.
