…props to easily searchable full ingredients lists! Many companies should do this, I didn’t even had to search for the product in Korean, a simple English search was all it took :3
…sorry for the obsessive packaging pictures; I just really like the colors of this product!
This cushion did not break me out and I love that it doesn’t contain any mineral oil (tends to break me out), petrolatum (tends to break me out a lot) or SLS (loves to break me out at random)! Although fragrance is at the very end of the ingredient’s list, this cushion has a quite heavy flower/honey scent to it that does linger for some time – very sensitive noses should probably stray away for this. I personally don’t mind the scent as it is the exact same scent as my beloved Skinfood Royal Honey Cover Bounce Cushion 🙂
+ light formula
+ no Paraben, Ethanol, Phenoxyethanol, Benzophenone, Triethanolamine, Talc, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum and SLS (didn’t break me out)
+ honey scent (might be yay or nay depending on personal preference)
+ natural finish
+ decent staying power
– very sheer coverage
– heavy fragrance
Conclusively, I really do enjoy this cushion if only it had more coverage! There will be a time of clear skin coming though where this cushion will hopefully be all I need and be able to ditch the heavy concealers, I know it will be. In the meanwhile, I happily continue to walk the route of cushion adventures with you guys 😀 If you’re interested in trying this, I highly suggest you get it as long as A’True offers a free extra refill with purchase 🙂 Since it’s Monday evening I will enjoy one of my favorite activities: Watch the newest episode of Game of Thrones, drink wine and pretend to be badass Cersei Lannister.
If you have any questions that I didn’t cover, please feel free to ask away in the comments!
Happy start into the week everyone!
Lots of love,
