Laneige BB Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++

This is my first BB Cushion, bought because I love the case.. Lol.. Yeah that's me, sucker for packaging. Another cushion that I have (not a BB) is from Etude Magic Any Cushion which is a make up base/primer/corrector and also bought because of the case, the Minnie Mouse edition. Don't judge me!! Hahaha...

This set includes a case with two refills, one is already attached and another one is inside a sealed packaging. 

My case design is a Playnomore Large Heart with Whitening BB Cushion refills. Actually I want Pore Control refills but this is already set. No choices, I bought this one instead of another design that I'm not interested in, Playnomore Three Small Hearts with Pore Control refills.

I choose shade no 21 Natural Beige which I think is most suitable with my skin tone according to some swatches on Google. Each refill consists of 15 grams of product. So basically in a set you have 30 grams of product in total, same with a size of normal bb/cc cream or foundation in tube/bottle. 

While a bb/cc cream or foundation's tube/bottle is designed to keep the moisture and not easy to dry eventhough you maybe forget to close the cap, bb cushion works slightly different. It is so easy to dry if you are so careless and forget to close the lid and protector. 

The case is strong and sturdy and is very cute with white and metallic pink as dominant colors. The lid closure is a click type and mine works perfectly.

Inside we got a mirror attached to the lid with a playful eyes sticker. There is also tray to put the applicator that functions as a product protector too. Once the seal is removed, make sure that you close the protector tray properly to prevent the product from drying.

The applicator is a white-blue thin sponge with a strap that helps the application process. Just put two fingers inside the strap and then continue pressing it to the cushion to pick the product. The amount of product picked is just perfect.

First impression is that it's bit too dark for my skintone. When you see the picture above you will know that it looks darker than my usual foundation and also a bit yellowish.

Your Left: After. Your Right: Before

But when applied, it blends perfectly and creates a dewy and natural finish. No signs of wrong shades at all. It covers my imperfection and brighten my complexion. 

It also smooth out my pores, the result is visible in the picture above and below. You can zoom the picture to see how big my pores before I applied this product. It covers signs of fatique and some dark spots. The coverage is not that high, still need concealer though. It is buildable up to medium coverage while still looks natural.

The texture is not too sheer or too thick. It is easy to apply and blend. I don't find any signs of breakouts even after hours. It is light enough to use in the morning and quite long lasting on humid weather, around 7 hours before start fading. 

It has SPF 50+ PA+++ which means that it protects skin from dangerous sun light. And with that high SPF, this product is non oily and non sticky.. Seriously, this needs to be considered. Sadly the case is limited edition, you can buy the regular case instead.

Thank you for reading..
