Review: Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control in 21 Natural Beige

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

I had been curious to try cushion foundation. First I got myself the Sulwhasoo Brightening one, but I didn't really use it because the shade I picked was too pink for me. Usually I never order a foundation online since I find it difficult to choose the right shade without testing, but I couldn't find any store selling Sulwhasoo in Tokyo. I liked the ease of use of the compact and thought I should try another cushion so I ordered this 'Pore Control' type of Laneige BB Cushion - they also offer a 6-in-1 type cushion but Pore Control sounds so good. Well I googled like crazy and saw a lot of shade swatches of it before ordering and it was a perfect shopping!

Let's open the box.

The box is quite big because it has a chunky compact and an extra refill in it.

The manufacturing date is printed on the back. I ordered the product on around June 20th and you can see it is so fresh.

I like the simple white packaging. Here's how it looks when you press the puff on the cushion.

The Laneige cushion comes in 5 shades and I got the shade 21 Natural Beige which perfectly matches my medium skin tone. There is the Sulwhasoo Brightening cushion in 21 Medium Pink behind the Laneige one.

The coverage of Laneige BB cushion is medium to high, it covers everything that I want to be covered, like the redness and pores around my nose, without looking cakey. I like how it brighten up my face and gives a natural semi-matte finish.

As it has SPF50+ PA+++, I normally apply it without any primer or sunscreen. I noticed the cooling effect upon application, which is so refreshing. The scent is a bit strong but smells nice. The best part of this cushion is its lasting power. I applied it and added a very thin layer of the Cosme Decorte Lacouture Loose Foundation to set, then I went to a concert at night. After fangirling for 4 hours, I looked at my face and it didn't get shiny at all. Normally with most BB creams and foundations, my T-zone gets oily in 3 hours so I was very impressed that this cushion stays on my skin all day. This cushion is going to be my best friend this summer.

I recommend this product if you find the Sulwhasoo cushion too dewy just like I do. Also this will work great for oily or combination skin.
