Let's be real. How many of you guys fuss around applying foundation or BB creams every morning? Take a brush? Soak the BeautyBlender every morning? Yes, I was the one who went through all that progress until I met the miracle fuss-free product, CUSHIONS.

I confess that I'm not a trend-adapter, which means I don't buy the product just because it's NEW. This was the biggest reason I never mentioned CC creams in any of my videos, and blog posts. Sometimes the new trend seems to be very gimmicky, same product in a different packaging or a new name. I wasn't that up for trying the Cushion foundation as well. But I guess I need to confess again, I really do regret my attitude for neglecting the trends. THE CUSHIONS ARE THE REAL TREND!

As an insider, if I can take some advantage of that I'm the one who actually resides in Korea, goes to a girl's uni, living in the hottest city (really?), I think what I see everyday is a real trend right now. Without any exaggeration, you can find many girls in a subway, cafe, at school, carrying a particular product, Cushion Foundation.

Below, I review five cushions from five different subsidiary brands of AmorePacific. And if you haven't known, AmorePacific is the only company who has a legal right(patent) to manufacture this new technology, cushion foundation.




= The mother of cushion foundation
[Color: Natural #21, Natural #23, Cover #21, Cover #23, Shimmer #23]
What I have is Cover #23, which is generally suitable for MAC NC25-30, but this product is one tone brighter

This is just legendary product that made the trend, still remains as the best selling product. It contains 30% of Mineral water, Pore Elastomer, Siberia Peptide 6, Vitamin B5, E, P, which will help your skin to be hydrated and elastic.

Coverage is medium and definitely buildable. The moisturizing feeling dries down in a few minutes and it actually finishes with semi-dewy to matte finish depending on your skin type/condition. Actually, I see a lot of MUMS wearing this one because Korean mid-age women do like the brightening foundation and I say this one stays on your skin quite long!

Suitable for all skin types who would look for an overall great cushion product. But if you have dryer skin, you might want to look for more hydrating & dewier options!



= The latest baby, but the strongest coverage!
[Color: Cover Vanilla #21, Cover Beige #23]
I have #23 and it matches my skin tone very well.

I'm gonna start bold, OMGGG. In this little compact there's a hope in a jar. This got really popular in short period of time ever since it was released because it finally satisfied every girls who needed some COVERAGE. Since cushion foundations has a fluid capture system technology, it is more moisturizing than any liquid foundations but the coverage may be a bit disappointing.

It still contains 35% of Hydro Essence Water but this guy is on the matte-st side and doesn't require a finishing powder. The thing I really like about is, it's the most SUMMER-APPROPRIATE foundation with the long-lasting power, high coverage, and above all, the light-weight consistency.



=Waterbank technology, self explanatory product for Laneige fans
[Color: #13, #14, #21, #23]
The Laneige coloring is one tone lighter than any other brand's standard. I use #21 for Laneige. 

I both experienced two versions of Laneige BB cushions and I feel the only difference is the texture, Whitening one has more coverage with powdery finish, Soothing Cushion was definitely more moisturizing.

Whitening BB cushion has Laneige Melacrusher ingredient that activates to maintain your skin cells bright and flawless, but I honestly don't know if it does after a short time of wear. I personally prefer the Soothing cushion better and I reach in the days when I feel like I need a rest from makeup! But still I want something that can give some sheer coverage. And it's just HYDRATING! I'm sure you can try this guy if Laneige is accessible in your country i.e Singapore. :)



[Color: Natural Shining #21, #23, Cover Glow #21, #23, Shimmer Beige #22]


This is the most famous one right after IOPE Air Cushion. Most of my friends own this cushion over IOPE one and it surely does give you a beautiful glow with a flawless, Korean actress-like finish. 

However, I think this one is catered more towards dry to normal skin as this can turn a bit cakey as wearing. The key of applying this one is to apply - or dab the sponge - with LIGHT HAND to create a flawless, airbrushed look. Otherwise, it can look a bit cakey but it doesn't settle on your fine lines. For me, I would use it towards winter when my skin is dryer. It activates to hydrate your skin and it does give you a refreshing sensation. This is the most effective one when it comes to touch-ups as it does provide medium to high coverage. 


[Color: #104, #106, #204, #208]

AmorePacific has a great range of skin care, especially the Moisture Bound Skin Energy Mist is superior. The ingredients are very reliable and they constantly put effort on making a new, innovative cosmetic.

As much as I like the brand and as much as it's a high-end, expensive (60USD with the full package+one refill) I have a mixed feeling on this item to be honest. I'm not 100% sure if I want recommend this to you all as I feel there are many alternatives for this time, such as the cushions I mentioned above. This cushion definitely has a narrow target, for those who look for natural ingredient and go for a very sheer face makeup. It serves the highest skincare benefits to you with all the asian botanical, herbal extracts that cools and soothes your skin and also, helps you prevent skin irritation.

This does have a very luxurious texture and the cooling sensation when it touches your skin is splendous! Although it being a foundation, I recommend you to use another layer on top of this such as powder or concealer to actually work as a foundation. I use this guy only when I go for minimal makeup or can't be bothered to apply a foundation. For my taste, I would rather say... this can be a good sun protector or a makeup primer but not a foundation when you look for coverage. But as I mentioned in the video, it does provide you a nice healthy glow with evening out your complexion. :)

Another official video I found thru youtube :)

  3. hello liah!
    i was wondering if the refill packs all fit into the same container?
    so if i bought a hera one would it still fit into a laneige one?
    or i saw others from "cheaper" cosmetic brands such as etude house and such..
    would the refill veresions fit into a hera compact?
    thank you!

  10. Brilliant review, have subscribed, shared, liked and commented :) I ordered the AmorePacific so am hoping it works for me. I do have quite a bit of redness so it it's really sheer it might not be worth it, even with all the botanicals. Which of the foundations would you recommend for very dry skin?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For dry skin Laneige soothing BB cushion, HERA UV Mist Cushion and AP CC cushion you got. But the AP cushion is very sheer as I told you :) Let me know how you like it so far.

  13. Hi liah, i loveeee your blog ! It is so helpful. Thank you soo much for doing this, it helps other girls like me so much easier in choosing cosmetics for ourselves. Im from Melbourne, Australia. The weather is cold and dry in winter, humid in summer. However, my skin usually get very dry and sensitive all year around. Can you please recommend me which cushion foundation i should use? Should I get the Laneige or Hera ? Thank you soooo much. <3

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Does it get humid in summer there? I think both Laneige and Hera gives you a nice semi dewy finish. Mmmm but I personally prefer the Laneige one because of the lighter texture! It's up to you tho :)

  20. Hi Liah:) I have a question about the air cushion foundation.
    I have a acne-prone skin, and i am using acne product which dries my skin out. And if i use normal foundations, my make up look so cakey/flaky, should i try out the IPOE one? or Laneige? Thx!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi Liah! May I ask does the Laneige Cushion Whitening have the waterbank technology also? Is it an older version of the Soothing Cushion or is it just two different products? Because they seem very similar. Thanks!

Do you know were else I could find them with free international shipping? Thanks
