Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion Review, Swatches and Photos

January 2nd, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

After getting utterly hooked on IOPE Air Cushion XP Foundation and Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion Foundation, I came across Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion, a premium cushion foundation by AmorePacific.

Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion Review Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion
The Evenfair Perfecting Cushion Foundation comes in a luxe-looking glossy light beige compact with a chrome trim and is about 3 inches wide and 1 inch thick. Like the IOPE and Laneige, there is a mirror on the inside of the lid, with a two-part compartment at the bottom – a top one that stores a puff applicator and one below that holds a sponge (or “cushion”) soaked in a super runny foundation. The foundation also comes with an additional foundation refill and applicator.

Combining oriental medicine with skincare to balance the Yin and Yang that’s crucial for beautiful skin, its ingredients include:

* Sulwhasoo’s signature ingredient, Jaeumdan (滋陰丹), which is a blend of Korean herbal medicinal plants (Small Solomon’s seal, Adhesive Rehmannia, White Lily, Chinese Peony, and East Indian Lotus) to counter the effects of Yin deficiencies like dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.
* Apricot kernel oil and Korean herbal water complex to promote skin resilience and hydration.
* Flexible film-fixing polymers to form a thin protective barrier so that skin is left flawless and smooth.
* Octinoxate, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide for broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Shade-wise, there are 4 – #13 Light Pink, #21 Medium Pink, #23 Medium Beige and #25 Deep Beige – to cover pale to medium light skintones. My NC30 skintone fell right in between #23 and #25. #23 was much lighter than my natural skintone while #25 was warmer and slightly darker. Needless to say, I went with the #25.

The foundation applied with a cooling sensation and a semi-heavy scent. It felt moisturizing yet lightweight on my dehydrated combo skin and left behind a natural and dewy finish. Although the coverage was a little lighter than the IOPE, it was nonetheless very buildable and perfect for every day.

The wear was superb. Even without a setting powder over it – that’s how Korean celebrities wear them – my makeup stayed on intact and I did not notice any oil on my T-zone like I did with the Laneige.

Overall, SulWhaSoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion lived up to its reputation of being a premium cushion foundation with its moisturizing yet lightweight texture, buildable coverage and great wear. It was definitely a better fit for me than Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion Foundation but similar to IOPE Air Cushion XP Foundation, which was 2/3 of its price.

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ Foundation Review, Swatches and Photos

July 11th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Per a reader’s recommendation, I decided to try out Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++, one of the most popular air cushion foundations from Korea.

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion Foundation SPF 50+ PA+++ review

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion Foundation SPF 50+ PA+++

Like the IOPE Air Cushion XP SPF50+/PA+++ Foundation I loved, the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ Foundation came in a portable white compact about 2.75 inches in diameter and 1.25 inches thick. Flip open the lid and you have a mirror on top and a bottom part that is split into two compartments – an upper one for storing a puff applicator and a lower one that holds a sponge (or “cushion”) soaked in a super runny foundation. To apply the foundation, you press the puff applicator into the cushion then pat directly onto skin.

The 5-in-1 formula contains:

* White Plus Renew Complex (Bead Tree extract, Korean thistle and Natto), the major ingredient of Laneige White Plus Renew, for bright and clear skin.
* SPF 50+/PA+++ to block out UVA and UVB rays.
* Soothing ingredients and cooling sensation that lowers skin temperature by 3 degrees Celsius to perk up tired skin.
* Elastic cushion powder against sweat and sebum for long-lasting wear.
* Spherical powder to control oil and prevent excess shine.

The foundation applied smoothly with ease and did not feel as moisturizing as the IOPE. The finish, though less dewy, was skin-like nonetheless. There was also a pretty strong scent, which you pretty much can’t avoid with Korean makeup and skincare products.

Color selection wise, it was better than IOPE. There are 4 shades to choose from – #13 True Beige, #21 Natural Beige, #23 Sand Beige and #31 Brown Beige – which all run darker and warmer. On my NC30 skin, I use #C23 Cover Beige for the IOPE and was able to get away with #21 Natural Beige for the Laneige.

As for the coverage, it was on the lighter side. A few dabs evened out my skin nicely but I definitely need concealer over problem areas. And while the foundation did wear well on my dehydrated combo skin, there was shine on my T-zone after 5-6 hours, which I did not see with the IOPE.

All in all, Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ Foundation was a decent cushion foundation that was easy to use and provided natural, skin-like coverage. But for now, I will stick to IOPE.
