Hey hey 🙂 I decided to try making some review for myself hoping that it could help you guys make your choices 🙂
I decided to start with a cushion since this is one of the biggest characteristic of the Korean cosmetic nowadays 🙂 and the one I picked to start with is Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion !
I have talked a lot about Hera UV Mist cushion and the IOPE air cushion xp so today I wanted to bring in a 3rd one and most likely the best (would you guys agree ? )
First off… the ingredients for those of you who needs it :
Water, Titanium Dioxide, Cyclopentasiloxane, zinc oxide, a chilhek silme cinnamate ethoxy, phenyl dimethicone trimethoxysilane, cyclohexanone siloxane, dimethicone PEG -10, Butylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol dicaprylate / digital camera plate , arbutin, PEG lauryl dimethyl siloxy Paints poly -9 dimethicone, acrylate / Ethyl acrylate / dimethicone methacrylate copolymer, polyhydroxy stearic acid, sodium chloride, aluminum hydroxide, silsesquioxane polypropylene, stearic acid, phenoxyethanol, Tok Sycamore tree frills reel silane, glycerin, lecithin, iso stearic acid, isopropyl palmitate, Ethyl hexyl palmitate, hectorite dimonium distearate, methyl methacrylate Crosspolymer, polysorbate 80, glyceryl -3 poly poly receiver tease Inn, lily flower / leaf / stem extract, Rehmannia extract, okjuk extract, peony extract, lotus seed extract, lecithin Painted Hydro jeneyi, Ethyl hexyl glycerin , an acrylate / stearyl acrylate / dimethicone methacrylate copolymer, poly methyl silsesquioxane, mica, silica, ethanol, squalane, dimethicone, tri methyl siloxy silicate, disodium this dithiane A, adenosine, honey , dimethicone / Vinyl dimethicone Crosspolymer, hyaluronidase sodium carbonate, haesongja oil, peach tree flower extract, sesame oil, camellia oil, Almond oil, alumina, Christian extract, Almond extract, plum extract, honey extract, lotus germ extract , red iron oxide, yellow iron oxide, black iron oxide, fragrance
The case is ivory and gold color which makes it quite elegant, refined and modern.. what you would expect from Sulwhasoo.
Cushion puff is brown color.
Sulwhasoo Perfect Cushion has sun block, It’s SPF50+ PA+++. I even can skip my sun block when the sunshine is not really strong (like for rainy days or when I get super lazy… but well, DON’T SKIP your sunblock ;p )
No13 and No21 are a bit pinky, No13 is brighter than No21. No23 and No25 are beige based in yellow. So if you have acne / reddish skin, I recommend you to use No23. If you have pale skin then No13/21 would be perfect for you! 🙂
I choose No23 even though my skin color is brighter than No23 because I don’t have that pinky face. It doesn’t really fit me ;P
when you open the box, you can see one of perfecting cushion and one more refill.
when you open the cushion pact and there is a cushion. Sulwhasoo cushion puff is brown color which is quite unique.
when you apply this product on your face, there is only one tip i can give you (same for all cushions hehe ) ! Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap!
Do not rub or press. Just tap tap on your skin to fit the BB/foundation into your skin smoothly. It really fits on the skin with the air puff! no extra effort needed
From my personal experience, Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion is much moistfull than Hera Mist Cushion. Hera Mist Cushion has powdery finish and high cover and Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion gives dewy skin look. I have combination skin, oily but dry inner skin. I prefer Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion since I like dewy look. For the summer, I recommend you to use Hera Mist Cushion for people who have oily skin like me.
As so many people already know that I’m a huge fan of IOPE Air Cushion 🙂 Comparing with Iope air cushion Cover 21 and Sulwhasoo perfecting cushion No23, I think these two have similar coverage, but Iope gives glow look and sulwhasoo gives dewy look.
Best strength of the cushion products is that it really helps and gives us natural looking skin makeup! It’s really easy to apply and it REALLY helps me a lot to cover my skin! I even don’t need the other base makeup product if I have cushion product 🙂
When I go out, I bring my cell phone and the cushion and that’s it 🙂
Here is my thought of the cushions :
1. If you need Coverage
Hera Mist Cushion(Cover) > Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion / IOPE Air Cushion(Cover) / Innisfree Longwear Cushion > Amore Pucific Anti Aging Cushion > Amore Pucific Treatment Cushion > Banila co CC Cushion
2. Glow look – dewy look – Matte look
Banila co CC Cushion > Amore Pucific Treatment Cushion – IOPE Air Cushion > Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion – Hera Mist Cushion / Innisfree Longwear Cushion
Hope this helps for finding your cushion or maybe will make you curious about trying one 😀
