This is the best time of the year, here in India, when I am reviewing the new Cushion foundations by Innisfree. Summers are almost around the corner & our quest for a light weight, natural, summer centric face product begins.
I recently went to the My Style My Cushion DIY event by Innisfree. They have launched two new variants to their cushion foundations, along with some really fun & quirky cases. These cushion foundations are available in two variants: LongWear Cover Cushion & Water Fit Cushion.
The former is a mattyfying cushion foundation more suitable for oily skin, while the latter gives a dewy finish, more suitable for dry to normal skin.
I chose the Longwear Cover Cushion for myself, as my skin tends to get quite oily in summers. Let’s proceed to the pros & cons of the Longwear Cover Cushion foundation.
✔️ Gives 95% matte finish with 5% dewy glow especially on the strategic parts ie cheekbones & nose.
✔️ Gives low to medium coverage, making the foundation appear very natural & light weight on the skin.
✔️ Very good for summers as it is light weight, mattyfying formula, that stays put for long hours without melting.
✔️ Enriched with green tea water extract that helps replenish the skin & keeps it healthy.
✔️ Contains the essential Hyaluronic acid. This acid is naturallly present in human body, but with age it tends to degrade, causing skin ageing. Presence of this acid in the Innisfree cushion foundations, helps restore its content in the skin, thereby delaying the process of ageing, if used regularly, as what the company claims.
✔️ These foundations also contain very tiny natural oil particles that prevent cracking of the foundations. It also gives a smooth flawless application of the product.
✔️ The Longwear Cover Cushion foundation is easy to blend on the skin, gives a low to medium natural coverage.
✔️ Stays on for 6-8 hours on my skin in normal temperature of 25 degree celcius.
✔️ Innisfree has launched these foundations in more colours as compared to their previous version where colour choice was a disappointment. N27, N 31 & N 33 are the warm tones, good for Indian skin tone, while N13, N 21 & N23 are the cooler tones. I got myself N31. (For your reference I am NC35 in MAC)
✔️ More variety in shades is still desired looking at the varied Indian skin tones.
✔️ Does not cover dark circles, one has to use concealer to cover up the dark spots/circles. But as long and you prefer a natural looking foundation, you can well ignore this aspect. No natural finish foundation will give that kind of coverage.
These foundations come in a refill pack of 14 grams each. One can choose the colourful cute cases & get the refill assembled on the base of the case. The case has a flap inside which opens to access the cushion, while the top part of the flap is used to place the puff. The puffs are sturdy & does not absorb too much product, rather they transfer the product on the skin & enables good blending, unlike the conventional sponge applicators that are good for nothing but eating up the entire product.
The case also has a full size mirror. A very practical & travel friendly packaging.
The refill retails for ₹900 for 14 grams of product. The cases are for ₹600 each. Puff costs ₹150 while the beauty blender costs ₹350.
I recommend the Innisfree cushion foundations. It’s a very practical, day to day, go to option.
