I'm back with yet another Cosme Review!
And it's a product from one of my recent favourite Korean brand, Innisfree!
*This product is not sponsored and paid fully by myself btw*
I only first started using Innisfree's products about 3 months ago when I received the Volcanic Pore Clay Set and Green Tea Seed Serum from my aunt as a gift and that was when I started buying other stuff from them!
Also, as an avid fan of Pony Pony (Korean Youtube Make up Guru), I always tend to look out for the make up items she uses in her videos and Innisfree's products are one of them.
And since she uses Innisfree's BB Cushion a lot in her make up videos, I decided to just get one to try it out~
Here's one video of her using TONS of Innisfree products:
She uses the Ampoule Intense Cushion a lot, most likely due to the harsh winter weather in Korea.
I wanted to get the Long Wear Cushion since it's summer all year round in Singapore but decided to just go ahead with the Water Glow Cushion instead since the staff said it will have more of a dewy look.
There are a total of 3 shades:-
♥ No. 13 - Light Beige
♥ No. 21 Natural Beige
♥ No. 23 - True Beige
I got the No. 13 - Light Beige shade but... unfortunately I think too highly of my skintone and it turned out a little too light for me. =(
The properties of the Water Glow Cushion however are really good in my opinion. The first thing that attracted me was the SPF 50+/PA+++. Sunscreen to me is like... Water. Thus having a SPF 50+/PA+++ in my cosmetics is a +++ point!
Like most cushions in the market now, the Water Glow Cushion comes with the air puff which I love using even with my normal foundations. The air puff in the Water Glow Cushion is more or less comparable with the Laneige's one.
The cushion has a seal to ensure that it is a brand new product just like all the other cushions, obviously if the seal is already broken, don't even think of using it! Go get it exchanged or something~
I would have to say that the coverage of the Water Glow Cushion as compared to IOPE and Laneige's BB Cushion is way way better. But that being said I was a little disappointed as I was expecting it to be really dewy. But it came out kind of matte looking as you can see in the picture below.
Looks really matte eh? But the coverage is definitely A LOT higher.
Like I mentioned earlier, because I thought too highly about how fair my skin is (never crossed my mind that there are Koreans even fairer than I am) I could only use the one and only cushion from Innisfree I bought whilst in Korea which is the lightest shade as a highlight base before applying my IOPE BB Cushion over it and around the rest of my face~
Above picture illustrates the different parts on my face in which I use the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion on as a highlight. On my T-Zone, the triangle area below my eyes and beside my nose, cupid's bow and chin!
I would definitely go back an purchase either the Long wear cushion or Ampoule Intense cushion for sure~~~ Just to test it out! I'll do another review once I get it ok!
Conclusion: (Max 5 ♥)
(Innisfree - Water Glow Cushion)
Texture of this product feels OK to me.. Blending wise, I would say.. not the best as the consistency is a little thicker than the Laneige and IOPE's BB Cushion.
Effect on my skin: ♥♥
As I was expecting the effect of this cushion to be more dewy, I'd have to give only 2 hearts for this product. Coverage is quite good though.
For those who are looking for a cushion that is more dewy, this is not it~ The water glow cushion gives off a really matte look. Which I think could be achieved with a foundation. For me, I use a BB Cushion only because I want to achieve a dewy finish. So that is the downside of this cushion for me in my opinion~
Only available at Innisfree outlets in Singapore (only a couple outlets) or if you're in Korea (tons of them around). Get them in Korea if possible as they are much cheaper!
I got mine in Korea and I can't remember the exact price but definitely cheaper than if you get it in Singapore. Innisfree Singapore outlets retails them for about SGD$31 if I'm not wrong which is quite alright for me if you compare it with IOPE or Laneige. But if you were to purchase them in Korea it will be cheap! They are one of the brands that has great product quality at an affordable price!
Will I repurchase this again?
I probably won't purchase the Long Wear Cushion again but I'll definitely purchase the Ampoule Intense and Long Wear Cushion just to try it out~
