Missha x LINE Friends Magic Cushion Moisture Review & Swatch

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions are honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here  

Hello, lovelies~ A while ago, Missha collaborated with one of the famous chatting app, LINE, and came up with a variety of makeup/skincare products that is as adorable as their characters. I got a few makeup items to try out because they look cute interesting. Aside from the Sally lip balm tint and Brown lipstick that I have reviewed a couple of weeks ago, I also got the Magic Cushion, although I'm not sure what is so magical about it. After trying it out for two weeks, here are my thoughts about the lovable cushion.


The cushion comes in a separate orange box that has Sally's face printed on it. Inside the box is one cushion case complete with the BB cushion and a puff, along with an extra puff with another refill of the BB cushion. Unlike the outer box, the cushion case is yellow with Sally's face in the center of it. This is similar to my previous Doraemon BB cushion, both are equally adorable.


As I have mentioned in the paragraph before, this cushion comes with a puff that is just as cute as the casing and outer box. It is covered with pictures of Sally! I am not the biggest LINE friends fan, but this is just too cute. I bought this in the darkest shade out of the two, which is number 23. 


The BB foundation/cushion blends effortlessly with the puff provided. I just tap the puff multiple times all over my face to get an even coverage and finish. It doesn't leave any sticky residue on my face like other moisturizing products on the market. I do prefer to set it with a mattifying powder on my T zone to keep my excess oil away for a few hours.


I like using it for an everyday look because it has medium coverage that partially conceals my sun spot and moderate acne scars. The redness on my skin (cheeks and edges of my nose) is evened out, leaving a more even skin tone and fresh-looking face. 



Another reason I like using it (nearly) every day is because of its semi-matte finish, making it look more like skin as it still has a slight sheen.  To ensure a more natural finish (overall), I like to apply it from the center blending it towards my jawline. I don't like the idea of having a different shade of neck and face. 

I work in an office where the air-condition is on full blast most of the day, so the environment tends to be drying for the skin. My legs ends up dry at the end of the day, but it's a different story for my face. I have an oily T-zone, so the BB cushion lasts for an average of 2 hours before I see oil seeping out of my pores. If I were to use a primer before and a powder after, the oil control increases to a mere 4 hours. It is a product targeted for dry skin type, after all.


Overall, the BB cushion is quite comfortable to use every day as it doesn't have a sticky residue after applying. As I am a fan of light medium coverage, I am enjoying it because it doesn't look cakey or made up. Oil control might not be its strongest forte, but it does say that it is intended for those blessed with dry skin or the likes. 

What do you think of this adorable cushion from Missha and LINE friends? Do you think you will try it or leave it? Tell me what you think about it in the comments section below. Thanks for reading and until then, I'll see you later~

Etude House Big Cover Concealer Cushion Review & Swatch

Monday, May 02, 2016

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions are honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here 

Hello, lovelies~ Base makeup has always been my favorite makeup category because it helps even out my skin tone so I don’t look like someone who just had allergies all up on her face. Whevener there’s a new concealer in the market, I just feel a sudden urge to buy it and try it out on my face. Thus, this Etude House Big Cover Concealer Cushion blog post is created, lol.


The concealer comes in a separate beige box with all of the product information and ingredients listed on the sides of it. I bought the darkest shade as I usually do with most Korean makeup products. Even then, it can sometimes be a little too light for my skintone. Luckily, this one mathes a bit better compared to my previous purchases.


Right out of the box, the concealer is housed in a tube that has a clicking mechanism on the end. On the opposite side is a white round puff where the product comes out. I usually dot this on the back of my hand before applying it straight to the problematic area, i.e. my blemishes. This helps me reduce any bacteria transfer from my acne to the applicator.


The consistency is slightly thick, but I can still blend it easily with fingers or with a brush. It has a slight plastic-powder scent when I applied it on my skin. I’m not sure if this is a dud on my part, but that’s what I’m experiencing at the moment.

It is able to conceals the redness and light acne scars, but can only partially conceal my sun spot.

The coverage that this concealer gives is around light medium to medium coverage. I tried applying it in layers, but it looked cakey and overall terrible on my skin. It has a matte finish, so I prefer using this for blemishes on my cheeks and other areas where it is usually oily. I don’t like using this under my eyes as it accentuates the dryness under my eyes and makes it look cakey.

I don't know if you can see how cakey it is under the eyes.

Overall, Etude House Big Cover Concealer Cushion may seem like a more practical method in applying concealer if you are not fully equipped with a sponge or brush. Tapping it with fingers can also be done to get the concealer even on the skin. The matte finish makes it more suitable to be used on my blemishes, instead on my under eye area.


What do you think of this concealer? Have you tried it? Let me know what you think in the comments section below. Thanks for reading and until then, I’ll see you later~
