Cushion fever... everywhere!


Let’s just admit it. Make-up is every girl’s best friend. And for today’s post, I shall share with you about this two amazing products that I am currently obsessed with.


Lancôme Blanc Expert Cushion Compact High Coverage SPF 50 + / PA +++

The rave about the Cushion trend is getting famous, I must admit. The Koreans were the first to invent BB Cream and later on, the cushion technology. I’ve come across blog reviews and forums about this but I never really had the chance to try it. Most common questions, “How does it work?” “Wouldn’t it be troublesome?” Well, I had the same exact sentiments.

To be honest, my daily make-up routine consists of me putting my BB Cream/Foundation using my fingers. I’m a simple girl. I love make-up, but I don’t go to the extent of investing on expensive brushes or beauty blenders. #funfacts about me. Or, weird facts I must say? :P When I first heard about the Cushion trend taking over the world, I was curious. But, now that I’ve tried it, I’ve come to realize that this is a super handy and useful beauty product! 



I love how it’s protected by mesh netting, thus, easier usage and continuous dosage through the net. Thus, you don’t have to worry about wasting your foundation or overdoing it. It also goes on easily onto the skin when you dab the sponge in patting motions, and it sets easily. You’ll then have a natural satin glow. Which is the in thing now! It’s a high coverage SPF 50+/PA+++, lightweight texture base product that hydrates and refreshes the skin while on the go. Thankfully, it doesn’t cake when I touch up. I’m quite blessed with a good skin (not oily, not too dry, just nice) and my skin behaves quite well most of the times, so technically, I don’t need much touch-ups when I’m out! So yeay to me! 




What I love about this Lancôme Blanc Expert Cushion Compact High Coverage SPF 50+/PA+++, it comes in a wide variety of 9 shades to choose from. So, you don’t have to worry about finding a perfect shade for your skin. They even have shades for tanner skin tones! So don’t worry. I am currently using color O-02 and it compliments my skin very well! I think especially us Asians will love this product.



Packaging wise, it’s really beautiful and classic. Size is perfect! It’s not heavy and neither bulky, which I can easily keep in my bag and bring it wherever I go. 




Lancôme UV Expert XL-Shield CC Cover SPF 50 PA ++++

Before I start talking about this product, I am gonna tell you readers that I am madly in love with this product. It is more of like a love at the first use, and I can foresee myself using this again and again, probably till I can find a better product to substitute with :p I am not exaggerating!



As much as I love make-ups, but if you’ve known me well enough, or if you’ve probably seen me outside, my make-up is very minimal. I rarely have much make-ups on, unless on days where I need to put in extra effort to look good. For events, photoshoots, filmings etc. Otherwise, I’ll keep it minimal with BB/CC Cream, Mascara, Blusher and that’s it.



Why am I in love with this product? I’m always outdoors most of the time due to my job nature that requires me to be under the sun, thus, this product is what I exactly need. It gives a higher and wider protection against the UV rays. UVA that causes aging and UVB that make the skin become darker and causing dark spots. With SPF 50 PA++++, it’s light and non-greasy and worked great on my skin. And it even combats hyperpigmentation caused by blue light! Blue light is emitted by our electronic products and penetrates more deeply than UV rays! This product does reflect light, thus making the skin appear more radiant, glowy and even healthier! Not only that, the scent is pleasant and comfortable. So, yay! Lancôme UV Expert CC Cover SPF 50 PA++++ is a daily tinted skincare that combats 7 pigment-including factors to help maintain an even, uniform complexion.



It comes with 4 different shades: Flawless Bright, Fresh Rosy, Natural Nude and Light Beige. No points for guessing which shade I’m using, its Natural Nude! Perfect shade for my skin!



And yep, if you can see from my visuals, I am using just these two products!

Is this product worth buying? Yes.
