[REVIEW] New 2018 The Face Shop Sweet Apeach Edition Kakao Friends Oil Control Water Cushion V201 Apricot Beige

The Face Shop Sweet Apeach Edition Kakao Friends Oil Control Water Cushion V201 Apricot Beige Review:

Another newest and cutest makeup collaboration this month! And now it comes from The Face Shop X Kakao Friends, Sweet Apeach edition! I was crazily impassioned when got a sneak peek of this collaboration from The Face Shop Facebook Page few days before it was officially launched on May 7th. I didn’t pay much attention for The Face Shop X Kakao Friends Hoodie Ryan edition. But this Sweet Apeach edition is totally cute and adorable (maybe because it’s pink!). I couldn’t resist it.

This Sweet Apeach edition comes with super cute cushion case, Baby Sunscreen Cushion, lip tint, eyeshadow palette, blotting powder, sun stick, hand cream, body wash, body lotion and they even have Dr. Belmeur soothing gel cream and tone up cream in Sweet Apeach jar. Ah, all are so cute! The Face Shop really knows how to take my money.

I finally bought this Special Cushion Case Sweet Apeach edition on May, 6th. Right, a day before its official launch (and I regretted why I didn’t wait until the D-day because they gave a special Apeach pouch as free gift for buying certain products. I cried T T ). I picked the Oil Control Water Cushion for the refill of my Sweet Apeach cushion case. So, are you ready to meet the cute Apeach?

This Special Cushion Case comes in a pastel pink Sweet Apeach pouch and consists of a Sweet Apeach Cushion Case and a refill of Oil Control Water Cushion. You can also choose other variant of The Face Shop cushion refill according to your skin type because this case will fit to any The Face Shop’s cushion product (such as CC Cooling Cushion, CC Intense Cover Cushion, BB Power Perfection Cushion, Tone Up cushion, etc).

First, let’s meet the Sweet Apeach chusion case. I just want to know if there’s anybody who can resist this cushion case. It’s CUTE overload! So far, there are only two cushion cases that make me like, “I don’t care. I MUST have it!” One is My Peripera Pearly Night Inklasting Pink Cushion and this one. That’s why I didn’t think twice and just bought it even a day before this special edition was launched, haha.

The Sweet Apeach cushion case is housed in a pink outer box. Even the outer box is very cute and catchy, right? Meanwhile, the cushion case itself has a unique and different shape, unlike the usual cushion with round shape. It is Apeach head. How cute and adorable!

And although it doesn’t have a full rounded shape, this cushion is still travel friendly and very handy. The size is somewhat similar with my Apieu Air Fit Cushion. It’s not bulky at all.

Apart from the cute Sweet Apeach look, this cushion case provides general features like the others. It has a push button to open up the case and a circular mirror inside. Oh, by the way, the Sweet Apeach pouch is pretty thick and bigger than I thought and it’s reusable since it has a zip lock thus we don’t need to tear off the pouch to meet the cushion case.

This cushion case comes along with a refill of The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion. I don’t want to talk too much about the refill package, because it’s just an ordinary refill. They didn’t even repackage it (this is the reason I kinda regretted why I didn’t buy Sweet Apeach Baby Sunscreen Cushion because it has a very cute Apeach puff).

As they claimed, the Sweet Apeach cushion case fits the Oil Control Water Cushion refill perfectly. And to pair them is easy peasy. The instruction is also written on a side of the cushion case box.

And as I mentioned, the puff comes in its regular version. It’s an air puff with a good quality. It is not that thick but very soft and bouncy. The puff can deliver the foundation well and it doesn’t absorb too much product into it. It’s really helpful to apply the product evenly and quickly.

I chose the Oil Control Water Cushion because I was attracted with the claims, controlling sebum while giving a good coverage and moisture onto skin. Besides, the ingredients are so nice, just take a look at the list.

It has Niacinamide (which is good to improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and dullness), and also Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Oil (which has high antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory content) and so on. I think my skin will like them.

Well, before trying out the formula, let me give you the swatches of this cushion foundation because I was a bit surprised about the shade. I chose the shade V201 which is Apricot Beige and it’s not a gambling because I’ve been using the Dual Veil concealer in the same shade and love it (you can go to my review page to see the swatches).

But, in fact this Oil Control Water cushion in V201 is different. This cushion shade is brighter than the concealer. It also doesn’t have any yellow undertone. It is actually a cool tone – light beige.

I like this shade since it has a cool undertone without yellowish hue though it is brighter than the concealer. At first, it looks too white after application and all things to do is just give it some minutes to fully set on skin. After 5-10 minutes, the color blends seamlessly on my skin (like the swatches on my hand). It doesn’t look too pale nor greyish. It just looks very natural. Ah, I also like its mild and soft floral scent.

The foundation has a nice texture. It is lightweight, not clumpy and somewhat watery. And as I guessed, the finish is matte and slightly powdery. Well, it is matte but not flat. It still gives a very little sheen on my oily T-zone.

But on the contrary, it also tends to emphasize my dry patches as I don’t feel it moisturizes my skin. Hence using a lot of moisturizer on dry areas is needed before applying this product.

Now, the coverage. This product has natural-medium coverage. Applying one layer of this foundation will give a natural-weightless look and nice coverage to minor imperfections such as uneven skin tone and little blemishes.

Basically, the coverage is buildable but not that much. I think two layers is enough to give extra coverage. But I don’t suggest to apply more as its matte finish can be cakey after several layers. Besides, this product contains SPF 50+ PA+++ which is very great for a base makeup but able to leave white cast if it’s applied too much.

The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion gives a lovely oil control to my oily combi skin. It can keep my face away from excess sebum about 4-5 hours and after that, even though my skin starts to be oily, this foundie doesn’t melt away nor create flaky result. It still sits prettily.

Unhappily, it oxidizes after several hours, but it doesn’t make my face look too much darker or dull. I mean, it oxidizes but is still tolerable.

I’ve been using this cushion about a week and since it is a makeup, I think now I’m good enough to make a conclusion. This is, honestly, not my favorite cushion foundation but I don’t hate it, though. I used it for daily makeup and so far don’t have any major issue (like irritation, breakouts or crack result).

BUT however I need more moisturizing foundation. I will prefer base makeup with satin or glowing finish which provides good moisture and doesn’t emphasize my dry patches (and then set with powder to control excess sebum) rather than the matte one. So, I think it’s just a personal preferences.

In all points, I would recommend this Oil Control Water Cushion for oily skin. I like its natural and lightweight result. Its matte finish, oil control and coverage are nice too.

But as I said that I prefer satin or dewy finish, I wouldn’t repurchase it. I’d rather buy the other refill of The Face Shop cushion product to my Sweet Apeach case. Yes, this Sweet Apeach cushion case is the only thing I would recommend to you ALL because it is too cute to ignore!
