disclaimer: this is not a sponsored post but I just like to share my review about these products based on my personal experience.
If you love cosmetic or follow beauty products I’m pretty sure you all know about BB Cushion product that at the moment is in trend. Almost every cosmetic brand has their own version of this bb cushion. From high end to drug store ones. It’s the new kid on the block kinda thing, and it evolves from South Korea where the women are blemish free and porcelain skin look. BB cushion or cushion compact is a foundation soaked sponge contained in a pocket sized mirrored compact, offering a natural looking base of make up on the go with simply glide the foundation on the skin with the applicator provided, no brushes or sponges, and you’re ready to go. Perfect for a person like me, who always rush in the morning between dropping off the boys to school and go to work, and not to mention I always take a long time in front of the mirror to wing my eye-liner😜 So if I can save a bit on my face then I have a bit more time on my eyes! 😉😉
I have been trying three bb cushions so far from three different brands. Here is what I think about them;
1. L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion $29.95
This is a budget friendly cushion compact and available on Australian market, that’s important because I don’t really like buying cosmetic online to be honest. I like what I can see directly. It comes in 5 shades. When I glide the sponge on to my fresh clean faced, it goes very smooth and gives an even finish and covers my spot good enough. I like it because it makes my skin looks dewy, light, and not cakey. It is also great for touch up. It’s alright for every day make up and when you’re in a hurry.
2. Laneige BB Cushion $59.00
I was so curious about this Laneige BB Cushion as everyone talks and rages about it. So, against my will I purchased it at Strawberry net online. For 59 bucks I personally think, [please don’t unfriend me to all those Laneige fans just because I have a different opinion than yours 😛 ] it more or less the same as the L’oreal one. I have mine in sand beige, it covers ok but it’s not as good as the L’oreal one, honestly. I found it makes my skin looks a tad bit dry after I use it. Maybe because of its fragrance formula, enough that I can smell it as I wear it. As I read, cosmetic products with fragrance formula can irritate skin especially if you use it daily and also can damage the healthy collagen production that can cause dryness. The only difference is perhaps the packaging that looks expensive and much better than the L’oreal one. Also it comes with the refill, so that’s another bonus. I don’t dislike this product, but for me it’s no difference than the above mentioned so if I can save a bit on this I definitely will buy local.
3. MECCA Cosmetica In A Great Light Compact $60
It comes in 5 shades and the packaging is so pretty and cute. Overall, in my skin it covers pretty good, better than those two products above mentioned. It blends out so well and long lasting too, gives my skin that luminous glowy look which I like. For 60 buck it’s the same as Laneige I probably will purchase this again, just because I don’t have to buy online and it doesn’t have a fragrance formula.
In the end I think choose what’s best for your skin and your wallet. The most important think is how you care about your skin, because the good skin care is the key to a perfect make up.
Hope you all have great week-end!
