A cushion foundation that recharges skin with moisture while controlling sebum for long-lasting freshness!
I’m not a fan of cushion foundations or any foundations for that matter because I easily breakout when using these products on my face. I only use specific base products na hiyang sa face ko. But since cushion foundations are popular these days, I decided to try it out.
The Face Shop is a trusted Korean cosmetic brand so I have higher expectations. Oil Free Water Cushion claims that it’s all proof moist cover, fresh fit, and long lasting. It also has a sebum control formula that helps keep the makeup shine-free. I have a combination skin that has oily T-zone so I’m really looking forward to the result of this.
The cushion compact comes with faded light blue box. I like the minimalist design of the cushion case. It looks classy and durable. It has a puff applicator and a refillable cushion inside that is separated by a flip case. I liked the divider between the puff and the cushion. Thus, you don’t have to worry about contamination.
So I got the Apricot Beige shade. Following the instruction in the box, I lightly pat the puff to the cushion. I noticed that the product was transferred easily to the puff applicator. Its also easy to apply since mabilis din kumapit sa skin yung product. Upon application, the shade was too light for my skin tone. I had to apply a bronzer to match the shade to my skin tone. But I didn’t mind because the result was #onfleek!
I also noticed that the feel of the product on my skin is very light. It’s as if I wasn’t wearing anything at all. Moreover, the coverage amazed me. I have a lot of spots and pimple marks but I didn’t even have to use concealer to hide it. It really softened and blurred out the imperfections in my face.
At first, I was worried that my makeup won’t last the day. But I was amazed that after 6 hours, my makeup still looked fresh without retouch. There was no visible oiliness. It was unusual because my makeup doesn’t usually last that long. The best part was I didn’t get any breakout after using the cushion foundation.
Overall, I really liked the Oil Control Water Cushion. I’d give it a four (4)point rating. Despite the mismatch shade, it lived up to all their promises: shine-free, cotton skin, and long lasting. Plus, it has 50 PA+++ SPF, not bad huh.
I would definitely buy this product again but I’d choose a darker shade. With the right shade, this is perfect for people who loves to opt for ‘no-makeup’ makeup look!
