Anyway today i'm going to review a cushion from Laneige and i totally suggest you reading this review because it's worth it hahaha :)

     I guess you already know what Laneige is, right? Well, incase it's new for you i'm going to introduce the brand and the product here before i start with my very own review. Well, Laneige is one of the famous brand from South Korea. If you love Korea or makeup i guess at least you have heard about Laneige. Laneige was born in 1994 as a brand committed to help women achieve clear, radiant skin like snow with their "water science technology". That's why the first thought from my head everytime i heard about Laneige is the skincare. I heard and read a lot of good review about Laneige skincare but unfortunately i haven't try it. Anyway not only skincare, but Laneige also has its own makeup range and yes their cushion is quite famous.
     Laneige BB Cushion is one innovative makeup that sold every 10sec! No wonder it's the second best on global ranking. The cushion is easy to use, easy to carry, and real good when applied. Laneige has a few cushion (around 4 so far if i'm not mistaken), and i'm trying one of them, this one is Laneige BB Cushion [Pore Control] SPF 50+ PA+++ in Sand Beige (no.23).
A little about the product:
1. Pore Control
Pore Purifying Complex™ refines the pores and strengthens skin's natural resistance.

2. Semi-matt Finish
Contains powerful Dual Powder Formula that keeps skin soft and smooth to the touch with a lasting semi-matte finish.

3. Long Lasting
Anti-darkening Powder keeps the formula true to its color regardless of how long it was worn.

4. UV Protection
Can help protecting your skin from sun damage.

5. Cooling Sensation
The cooling effect refreshes skin as soon as it is applied.

6. Pore Coverage
The elastic Silicone Elastomer and Soft Focus Powder conceal the pores.

※ 2-in-1 (UV protection SPF 50+ PA+++, brightening)

    Unlike most of the korean product i know that only has light shade, this BB Cushion actually has 6 shades from fair to dark! Well, yes most of them still light shade but at least they have quite a dark shade and also shade that looks nice for yellow skin tone like mine.

Left to right:
No.13 True Beige: The beige color with yellow tone for bright and clear skin tone.
No.21 Natural Beige: The calm natural beige for chic and natural skin tone.
No.21P Pink Beige: Medium beige color with pink undertone for vibrant, bright complexion

Left to right:
No.23 Sand Beige: The sand beige for healthy and natural skin tone for tanned skin.
No.31 Brown Beige: The brown beige for naturally healthy skin tone for darker skin.
No.35 Cacao Beige: Dark Beige for chocolate undertone.

      Let's see the packaging~

     Like most of the cushion i know, the packaging is in the box, but this one has quite a big box like cushion from Sulwhasoo that i own if you ever read the review. Why big? Because it has extra refill inside! Yippie! Anyway the color is silver and really shinny because it has hologram almost all over it. That explain the rainbow color on the picture above hehe.

     Tadaaa! These are what inside of the box. One cushion and also one extra refill. I love how they have free extra refill inside.

     Here goes the cushion. Pretty, simple and still looks expensive. The size is also normal like most of cushions i had, so still easy to bring on my tiny little bag. Anyway these are the ingredients if you want to know:
Water, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Methyl Trimethicone, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Arbutin, Nylon-12, HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Sodium Chloride, Sorbitan Isostearate, Acrylates/Ethylhexyl Acrylate/Dimethicone Methacrylate Copolymer, Aluminum Hydroxide, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Stearic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Triethanolamine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Silica, Melia Azadirachta Extract, Salicylic Acid, Alcohol, Protease, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499, Fragrance

     This is the puff. I love how the puff is actually kinda thick and soft! Well, it might look the same, but actually i think this puff is kinda different than the other cushion's puff. I found out that this is a tailor-made puff! Means it's the one and only puff of its kind in the world (or so i read on the Laneige's website haha). Anyway the puff can absorbs the moisturizing formula and distributes it evenly on skin's surface, giving skin a natural and smooth texture.
"Antibacterial air cell sponge / Double puff structure.
The formula sits close to skin without creasing and does not absorb skin's moisture, leaving it cool and refreshed."

How to maintain the puff:
Keep the puff clean at all times. Use lukewarm water mixed with a small amount of neutral cleaning agent and gently massage the puff to clean. Rinse thoroughly, squeeze the moisture out, and dry completely in a cool shade to prolong use.

Cleansing the puff:
1. Hold the puff with both hands and press down with your thumbs.
2. Push out the foundation residue toward the edge of the puff.
3. Press down on the puff with your palm when rinsing to remove impurities.

      Do not rub or crease the puff when rinsing. The double-ply structure may crack or get dislocated, you wouldn't want that to happen.

     Anyway the cushion is sealed perfectly, so you don't have to worry it get contaminated or whatever before you open it yourself.

     Let's try to use it baby!

     As you can see the cartridge is actually from a sponge and like alwyas, i don't really like seeing those holes, you know, kinda shivering hahhaha. Anyway you can just press on the cartridge sponge to distribute the cream to your puff or finger. See the shade? It match perfectly with my hand! Well, it's kinda a little bit darker than my hand skin tone, but my hand is lighter than my face, so i guess it's good hahhaa.

     The texture is quite thick but really easy too blend and feels light on the skin! It can covers dark circle, redness and my darkspot even though it's just a bb cushion! I'm impressed. The coverage is light to medium, so you can use it as much as needed. Guess what? For a troubled skin like mine, this cushion is perfect for daily because it can covers most of my annoying problems. Plus it also covers my pores i guess, i have such a big pores and i need to put on primer usually or using a really thick foundation, but this is really something. Feels light and can cover pores, i love it, Hahahha.
     The shade is also perfect on my face, but not as yellowish as i thought. But still, it doesn't turn greyish, so i guess it's still great. I'm happy that i choose shade no.23 in Sand Beige because it's perfect for my skin! <3


    It almost perfectly cover the small imperfectness like uneven skin tone, pores, dark spot, redness, etc. So my first impression was great and after i tried to use it for a few times i still love it! First, it covers well like i mention before, light on the face, stays quite long! The longest time i used this was for like 8hr straight and even though it was kinda fade in the end of the day, but the oil control surprisingly still quite well and still cover most of my redness caused by acne. So i am surprised! To be truth at first i didn't put too much hope at most korean cushion really (mostly because most of the shades doesn't suit me). But once again Amore Pacific's product does surprise me. I love it!
     Second, even though the texture is light and totally easy to blend, it actually can cover my pores real well! I have this big pores that i hate so much, most of the time i need to put on lots or primer/base or using a thick foundation to cover it, but this cushion really does it jobs well! Me likey!! <3

+ light-medium coverage
+ perfect for daily use
+ light
+ easy to blend
+ stays long
+ got plus refill and puff
+ easy to carry
+ bye big pores
+ shade almost perfectly suit my skin
+ semi matte finish

-  i kinda don't like the smell idk why

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

     Well, i totally love my new cushion from Laneige and i totally recommend this to you guys. The only thing that i don't like is the weird smell like i mention before, it's actually smells nice at first but somehow after that it smells like goat hahhaa, my nose is weird. But other that that Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control is really nice! I guess you can buy it on your nearest Laneige counter if you're curious about it! Anyway you can also get Laneige products at www.sociolla.com and use my code "SBN04BEFD" for IDR 50k off!

     Well, Ghoulia is excited as well! Who doesn't love a new makeup that works amazingly nice? Hehehe. Anyway that's all my review for now, see you guys on my next post! Cya~
