So...Yves Saint Laurent introduces Le Cushion Encre Fusion Ink Foundation in Korea.
I had to wait a long time to get my hands on this,
since it was sold out every time they stock it.
It is Asia-exclusive at the moment but will launch it subsequently worldwide.




Check out my video review!
I also show the demo on how it applies and do a 12hrs of wear test.


YSL Le Cushion Encre de Peau
14g / 75,000KRW / No refill included
- Refill is 41,000KRW -


Shades

4 shades available in Korea.
10 / 20 / 30 / 40 
I normally go for #23 with most of my other Korean Cushion Foundations,
and I got the shade #30 for this YSL Cushion.
All the YSL Cushion shades tend to lean on a strong rose-pink undertone.
However I find it oxidizing through out the day and settles to a more natural beige tone.

Packaging

Black and gold, signature YSL design.
#SEXYALERT
The glossiness of the casing gives a much luxurious feel to it.
Definitely one of the cushions you can show off to your mates. :)

Compatibility

The refill is compatible to the followings;
- Bobbi Brown Capsule Compact 
- Biotherm Aqua Source Evermoist CC Cushion
- Lancome Miracle Cushion
*But not compatible with most Korean brands cushion foundations.



Scent

There is a subtle fresh rose petal scent in it like most of other YSL foundations.
But it fades right away as you apply it.

Coverage

The formula is highly pigmented, meaning it will create a flawless canvas with a tiny amount.
It corrects uneven skin tone, discolouration in one layer,
and it conceals severe acne scars and blemishes beautifully by two layers.
You can definitely build up the coverage to high.
However, you will need a concealer to cancel out the dark circles.

Texture & Finish

Even though this cushion formula is based on the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation
it's not as matte as the foundation.
It's somewhat hydrating once you apply it but it quickly sets to a beautiful semi-matte finish.
The best thing I like about this cushion is, it just subtly highlights the face by leaving a healthy sheen while keeping everything in place.
It's definitely one of the pleasantly dewinesses that oily skin users can handle.
The consistency is really light-weight and it won't cake up at all by layering more,
which makes it as a good touch up foundation to carry around as well.

Staying Power

YSL promises this to last all day long.
I've worn it for 12hours if you've seen my video without any powder or touch ups during the day.
I have oily skin and this lasts throughout the entire day
without any smudging, smearing, or clinging on to my pores/fine lines.
It will definitely get greasy towards the end of the day for oily skin types like it did on me, 
but it's still manageable once you slightly dust and set with a powder.
I was just impressed by the fact the makeup and coverage haven't faded at all.
I haven't tested in a humid and warm environment, but so far the longevity is mind blowing-!

Overall

Pretty impressive.
I would highly recommend if you're willing to splurge on a high end cushion foundation.
I'm generally a big fan of YSL foundations for it's extraordinary velvety-silky-smooth finish.
Yet this YSL Le Cushion Encre de Peau didn't disappoint us.
It's one of the foundations or cushion that will enhance the look and the texture of your skin.
Gorgeous, beautiful, and stunning!
I can't find a single complain except the price tag.
