MISSHA MAGIC COVER CUSHION FOUNDATION UK REVIEW

I will always be obsessed with cushion foundations, the ease of tapping the product for a flawless youthful look is something I will always look forward to. My sister recently came to visit from Hong Kong and she bought me loads of goodies that she knew I would love to try out and review. Missha is a Korean brand and is a brand that I love especially the skincare and the BB Cream that I have in my collection and I can't wait to share my review.

PACKAGING AND PRODUCT

I tried the product with and without a primer to see the differences and the standalone wear time of the cushion. The overall product has a good medium buildable coverage that covers redness and hyperpigmentation quite well. The shade range, however, is not great for deeper skin tones and even I found it a tad too light (shade #23). The set that I received comes with a refillable cushion and also the cushion sponge which makes it ideal for those who want to change up the sponge so it's more hygienic. The product contains SPF50+, therefore, there was flashback so I don't recommend taking flash photography with this cushion foundation.

The cushion compact is so incredibly cute and if you are a despicable me fan you are going to love this compact design. Missha and many other cosmetics have come out with limited edition design that loads of people like to collect. What I like about the cushions is it can be refilled, it's affordable and comes in many different finishes depending what you are looking for.

WITHOUT PRIMER

I found that the cushion enhanced my pores especially on my cheeks and sank into my forehead lines. The main problem that I found was that it is really hard to get the product into the crevices of your nose and it did end up caking up after a few hours of wear. I did use two layers of this waiting for the first layer to dry to test out the coverage. It has a slightly tacky feeling but dries down to an almost matte especially if you powder on top. It did wear off a little bit near my nose since my foundation fades of my nose the quickest and my jaw line as I have some scars there but it was not noticeable.

WITH PRIMER

I used the Nivea Shave Balm as a primer, a primer that I use every day which I thought would be a great way to test the cushion out as it increases the wear time on my skin. With the primer, my pores were less enhanced and I was not that oily especially as I feel asleep for 20 minutes during the evening. It did however still cake up around the crevices of my nose but my over complexion looked absolutely flawless if you did not notice the product build up around my nose.
WITH PRIMER 


VERDICT

Overall I think the Misha Magic Cover Cushion Foundation is one of the best I have tried so far, it covers my imperfections well and gives me an overall flawless base which everybody likes; I do like the L'oreal cushion but that dried up within 2 months and was not that affordable or able to refill. The next cushions I want to try is the Maybelline and Clio which are only available in the Asia pacific area so I will need to wait until I head over on my holidays. If you tried this cushion foundation before let me know how you got on with it.

That is all for this post, I hope you found it helpful. I currently have a giveaway running on my last post so don't forget to check it out.

Until next time!
