Cushion Compact, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion (02 Beige Rosé)

I remember my excitement in 2016 when the first cushion launched in the UK – about time I thought. I saw the Lancôme Miracle Cushion Foundation at the Boots counter and had a little play with it. I wasn’t overly keen however because it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for as it had low, dewy coverage. (Not that I…

Cushion Compact, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: YSL Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation (B30)

After being pleasantly surprised by the L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique which I tried last year, I’ve been a lot more open to trying other Western brand cushions despite the less-value-for-money price tag (that doesn’t come with an extra refill). Despite my view that Korean brands still produce slightly superior cushions, there are aspects of Western cushion formulas that I really enjoy too. One that I initially…

Cushion Compact, Hera, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: Hera Age Reverse Cushion (C23 Beige Cover)

The Hera Age Reverse Cushion! Whoo! When I first discovered cushions compacts, this one always stood out to me for looking super luxurious with the most elegant packaging, so I desperately wanted to try it. The high end price tag always held me back though and so I continually bought more affordable alternatives. But after trying so many other cushions my eyes couldn’t help but start wandering back towards…

Cushion Compact, IOPE, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: IOPE Air Cushion XP Matte Finish (No.23 Matte Beige)

I figure it was time to get my butt into gear with this IOPE Air Cushion XP Matte Finish review because IOPE have recently released their upgraded, 4th generation air cushion in 2016 and I plan to pick up 2 of the 4 versions during my trip to Seoul this August. They are still selling the (now) old versions however,…

REVIEW: L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation (No.4 & No.7)

More cushion foundations are landing in the UK! Yay. If you don’t know what they are by now, check out my cushion 101 post for the low-down. Cushions have been the trend for a good few years now in South Korea (where they were invented), and foreign brands have been catching on to the hype since the end of last year, as…

REVIEW: TonyMoly BCDation Cushion Plus (No.02 Skin Beige)

So my previous cushion compact reviews have been from mid to high end brands so today I’m back with a review of a low end cushion compact from roadshop brand TonyMoly. The TonyMoly BCDation Cushion+ was released in the latter half of 2015 and I initially bought it because I had a sample of the BCDation+ – which is a regular foundation…

Cushion Compact, Isa Knox, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: Isa Knox Limited Edition Micro Foam Cushion Silk Cover (No.23 Natural Beige)

Ahhhhh. Now this is a cushion compact I just had to have as soon as I laid eyes on it. There’s some products you own because it’s well known, you’ve researched it, has a lot of rave reviews etc, and then there’s some products you know nothing about but the packaging just screams buy me! This Isa Knox special edition…

Cushion Compact, IOPE, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: IOPE Air Cushion XP (No.C21 Cover Vanilla)

They launched the first cushion product in the South Korean beauty market…

Cushion Compact, Hera, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: Hera UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture (No.21 Cool Vanilla)

This Hera cushion was the very first cushion compact I ever tried back in September 2015 when I discovered them, and I haven’t looked back since. I love cushion compacts for their ease, convenience and multi-functional purpose that they have completely replaced normal foundations and BB creams in my regular daily makeup routine. It’s taken me awhile to get around…
