Concealer used to be my best friend, until I tried this.

EVENFAIR PERFECTING CUSHION by SULWHASOO, a renowned Korean beauty brand changed my whole beauty regime in a flash. First, I’m not really a fan of liquid foundation in a bottle. I found them too hard to apply if I’m in a rush, and to blend them perfectly, I need a master degree. And here it is, a cushion foundation, not liquid, nor powder. It reminds me a lot of Laneige BB Cushion, but Perfecting Cushion is not a BB. It’s a multi cushion foundation with skin care benefits (anti-wrinkle/whitening/UV protection) which will gives perfect coverage and that flawless look. 

Thanks to Sulwhasoo Indonesia, I had a chance to get my hands on this awesome product before anyone else (no worries, they’ll launch this upcoming September). I decided not to apply anything before Perfecting Cushion, as it already contains apricot seed herbal moisturizer to help promotes skin resilience and leave it moist all day. And I didn’t put any sunscreen too, as it already has SPF 50+, PA+++. Last but not least, I also skipped my darling concealer as it promised to give a perfect coverage. So in total, I skipped three products: moisturizer, sunscreen and concealer. Just remember to always apply on extra clean skin. 

Inside the packaging, there’s one refill available, and I use the puff provided to apply. It’s a thin puff, but don’t underestimate the power of it. The puff released just the right amount of foundation needed with just one press. Press once in the middle, and it should be enough for the whole face. Nadia from SULWHASOO Indonesia suggested me to start from the middle of the cheeks, then pat over the whole face. Once applied, I can feel the texture is very light. It is nothing like liquid foundation. Very easy to blend and it didn’t look cakey. One pat for each area is recommended though, as over applying will make the skin look to bright. And what a coverage for such a light texture! It did cut my makeup time (sorry concealer, see you again).

I also believe my skin look more radiant and glowing after I finished patting the whole face (check the pic above). Even though the Koreans like to put it that way (just the Perfecting Cushion and nothing else, said Nadia) I did put extra powder to set, because I still prefer matte finish for the final makeup result (thanks to my super oily skin). And if you like to apply powder blush like me, you need to use face powder or else the blush will streak. But if you want to use it like the Koreans (or you’re blessed with drier skin than mine), you can simply pair Perfecting Cushion with cream blush for that healthy dewy look. 

As I mentioned earlier, Perfecting Cushion will be available in SULWHASOO Indonesia’s counters at September 2014. They have 4 shades to choose (BTW, I used number 23/Medium Beige) and reportedly will be priced Rp 680.000.
