Hello ladies, we are in summer and don't we luv something on our face thats soothing, hydrating, whitens, sunblocks, good coverage? Here is one that I wish to share, I believe most of you have heard of the Korean invention on foundation cushions. A lot of Korean brands like Laneige, Sulwhasoo, Etude, IOPE had been releasing these lovely cushion compacts where the CC cream are embeded in a sponge in the compact.
This Hera UV Mist Cushion, are embeded with CC cream that contains SPF 50+ PA++, whitening, hydration and good coverage. It is suitable for any lady who are really stress in time each morning, before going out to work.
I tried this last year and I have to say my previous try - I do not quite like it because it melts away pretty fast during the day. You imagine its summer, with sweat dripping off, it is the worst. I find pretty hard to glide on loose powder as well. The product itself can standalone without to much loose powder so it is up to you if you want loose powder on or not.
So the reason I am writing this blog is, I had been trying this again for the past 2 months and find it sits pretty well on my face. I do not know if its my face condition its a bit better or is because I found the best primer (Hourglass Veil) that helps to get this set on my face. I have also been applying this using a foundation brush instead the puff provided which I think helps the product to sit better on my face.
I would say this cushion compact is quite durable and not too expensive - at a range about HKD3xx with a refill including a special puff as well. If you use this daily it would probably last you 3 months time and you can change to the refill pack - so one compact should last you 6 months. The refill is very easy to be put in place, slight push the base the whole container will come out and you can just put the refill container in and its all set.
I am using the shade N21, which is the lightest shade in the neutral tone. It also offeres higher coverage in the coverage range which starts from C21 if I remember correctly. At first thought I would definitely get the C21 with more coverage, but somehow I got the N21 just because I really wanted to create a nude look. You always can use concealer with any thing you wanna hide.
I have to admit I put this on a test over a few months, and I find is in general pretty good for all in one protection. I am not sure if you are aware, that most Korean stars, they got this glow on their face. This product will give you that glow. As a personal thought I do find my skin smoother when removing the make up at the end of the day maybe because of the hydration concentration within the compact. I do regular check on my face if I need to touch up or not. I do add a slight loose powder on the Tzone and pores areas of my face to reduce any oil that may pop up during the day. Otherwise this cushion doesn't need too much on top of it.
It is a good one go product. For ladies like us is the best to have one and only in our bags. If you are interested on a blog piece on the Sheseido foundation brush that I use, please let me know so I can start of the next blog piece.
