TONYMOLY Face Mix Primer Color Cushion 02 Mint SPF50+ PA++++:
Tonymoly is known as an affordable brand, with cute packaging, directed mostly at teenagers. It’s a very popular brand not only in Korea but also internationally! I have previously tried the BCDATION foundation made by the same brand and really liked it. Also, lately, I’ve been on the lookout for a good primer/ concealer, that wouldn’t make my acne more noticeable and would let my skin breathe without clogging my pores. This product is said to have covering and highlighting abilities, similar to color correcting, which has been gaining more and more fame lately, for it’s magical results. I thought that since all Tonymoly products I have tried so far have been nice, maybe I should give this one a shot I thought. And so I bought it.
The Face Mix primer is promising to smoothly cover the skin and the roughness of it, like pores and wrinkles. It is supposed to make the skin tone even, with the moist cushion which is easy to apply. The cushion works not only as a base, but also as a sunscreen with UV ray blocking function. Suitable for all skin types.

TONYMOLY Face Mix Primer Color Cushion 02 Mint Review:
I bought the Mint colored cushion, which is recommended for sensitive skin that turns red after being exposed to the sun and with redness, acne or trouble irritants. It is supposed to help with the covering of the appearance of veins and pimples.
This product is smaller than expected, it’s about half the size of a regular cushion. The container is very hard to open (I’ve broken about two nails so far), and it’s very cheaply made-to the point where you can hear it every time you open and close it.
The sponge is very hard, I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be this way but it’s multiple times harder than any normal cushion foundation. Even though it’s like this, I’d say there’s a purpose for it. One pump/press is just enough to cover one cheek.
It doesn’t have any particular smell, I’d probably say that it smells like nothing, which is not a bad thing, you don’t always want your face to smell like peaches or strawberry flavored cheesecake.
It isn’t pigmented at all, it cancels the redness of your face with about 2 applications however, your skin tone doesn’t get more even. I’d say it becomes more un-even. Maybe it’s just that my makeup applying skills aren’t that good but every time I try to use it, I end up looking like someone that is very, very sick. Additionally, it doesn’t have any coverage. The redness of your face will still be visible, it’ll just have a darker tone to it.
Personally, during all ten out of ten times that I used it, it made my skin feel like there’s constantly an annoying layer of concealer on top of it. My acne gets worse every time I use it and I’m not wondering why.
Concluding, I personally don’t like this product. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone to try it however, if you really want to try it for some reason, I should insist you should try avoiding it especially if you have sensitive/ acne prone skin.
