Review: The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion (Natural beige)

September 20, 2015

Call me old fashioned, but I wasn't really interested to try BB Cushion that has been hyped so much lately. I think every Korean Makeup brands have their own BB Cushion, and my dear friend Rini has tried at the very least 5 BB cushion from totally different brands haha. The reason why I didn't want to try it is because I was afraid that the coverage wouldn't be enough for my skin, as I have some blemishes to hide and dark circles to cover. So this is the very first BB cushion that I ever tried!

Note: BB Cushion is a liquid foundation that comes in micro foam case.

The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion
It comes in two different shades: V201 Apricot Beige and V203 Natural Beige. I got the natural beige, and I think I got the wrong shade :( it's too dark for my pale skin. The coolest thing about this cushion is it's water-based, there's no such thing as blotting in the middle of the day when I use this cushion! It has great oil control even if I don't top it off with powder.

This water cushion also has SPF 50 PA+++ to protect the skin from the sun. It doesn't have weird sunscreen smell, it doesn't feel sticky at all, instead it has satin matte finish!
The size is compact and travel friendly, comes with mirror and puff to transfer the product from the micro foam to the skin. I told you earlier that I was afraid that bb cushion won't have good coverage, but boy, was I wrong! I only need thin layer of product to cover dark circles and redness, it has medium coverage, much better than some BB cream that I've tried. If you need more coverage, you can always build up the layer, and it'll always feel light on the skin just like you're not wearing anything on your face!
The only downside for me is it takes more time to apply my makeup with water cushion as I'm more familiar with using face brush to apply my foundation/bb cream. But that doesn't stop me from using this product. I will keep using The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion and might be getting the lighter shade, Apricot Beige (hoping that will be the perfect shade for my skin tone!).
It's said that one pack of water cushion is for 3-6 months of usage. Once you finish the cushion, just get the refill instead of buying the whole thing as it'll be expensive. I'll definitely bring this cushion to my beauty travel bag later! Bringing this cushion's the easiest way to touch up during the day.
This is how it looks on my skin. As you can see, it's a tad bit darker than my skin tone (see my neck). If I got the right shade, it'll be the perfect cushion for me!

XOXO

    1. Let me know if you tried it :D
      harusnya sih tetap oke, karna cukup moisturising kok.. tapi finishnya lebih ke satin-matte gitu, mungkin kalo dry skin lebih suka kelihatan glowing kan hihi

    1. karna cobain cushion ini malah skarang aku jadi penasaran mau cobain cushion lainnya! cuma mungkin karena biasa lebih sering apply bb cream/foundation pake kuas, sekarang pake puff masih belum biasa... tapi enaknya gak berasa heavy di kulit aku, tapi kalo kata temen aku si Gita (comment di atas yang pertama: miss rhea) dia pake agak cakey di kulitnya dia. beda-beda sih yaa..
