Get enhanced coverage with Maybelline New York’s new BB Cushion. With 60% moisture essence and SPF 29 it keeps your skin moisturized and sun protected. Its compact format allows you to achieve the perfect flawless look anytime, anywhere and every day.
The packaging is exactly like the Innisfree longwear cushion. The flip- open flat case is quite sturdy and has a sponge applicator on top of the product. The sponge at the bottom is completely soaked or drenched in foundation liquid which when pressed delivers liquid to the applicator puff. The puff and the sponge are separated by a sturdy plastic lid that also prevents the cushion from drying off. The compact case is easy to carry around and can be used on-the-go.
The liquid foundation is moisturizing and gives a matte finish at the same time. It makes the skin appear dewy after sometime but does not feel greasy.
The foundation comes in only 2 shades- natural and light. I got the ‘Natural’ shade since ‘Light’ would be too light for my skin tone. The foundation has no yellow undertones which most of the Indian skin tones prefer, as a result it looked a bit white on my skin. Though, it blended well after a minute or so and did not look as white as it did initially. Application of Nyx Hydratouch powder on top of the foundation corrected the white cast and gave it a perfect yellow undertone to match my medium skin colour.
How I use and staying power: Since the cushion foundation gives light to medium coverage, a concealer is needed for dark spots and under eye dark circles. After applying the concealer, simply press the applicator puff into the foundation drenched cushion and gently tap it all over your face just like you do with a beauty blender. Let the foundation set for few minutes and follow up with a setting powder. I use the Nyx hydra touch compact powder since it evens out the white cast and mattifies my skin (I don’t like dewy finish!). The foundation then looks good on my skin and I am ready to go. Skin stays matte all day long with a slight dewy finish which is not greasy, so I don’t have any problem with it. It does not melt away and stays put. I only wished it matched my skin tone so I would’ve been happy with this buy.
