One of latest beauty trend in Korea is the cushion compact. I normally just use BB cream as my foundation but since I was running out, I thought this would be the perfect time for me to try out the cushion compact. The brand I decided to try was the Hera UV Mist Cushion.
What is cushion compact?
It’s similar to a BB cream but in a compact case. The “cushion” in the compact is soaked with the “foundation”. It comes with a sponge that you use to apply the foundation to your face.
How the color works with Hera UV Mist Cushion:
- 21 is for those with paler or pink skin tone
- 23 is for those with a slight tan or slight olive undertone
- C if for more coverage
- N is for lighter coverage
Color choices for Hera UV Mist Cushion:
- #N21 Vanilla Natural
- #N23 Beige Natural (this is the one I have)
- #C21 Vanilla Cover
- #C23 Beige Cover
- #22 Shimmer Beige
- Featherlight coverage.
- Lightweight SPF 50 coverage.
- Patented “cell trap technology” that allows the foundation to be disperse in super fine layer so you don’t look “cakey”.
- More sanitary to apply with the sponge provided.
- Just like BB cream, it is also multifunction, with ingredients that helps brighten your skin, hydrate your skin with mineral clay water, and help control excessive oil production.
- The compact is easy to carry around in your purse so you can re-apply throughout the day whenever needed.
- Comes with an extra “refill” in a sealed bag.
- There’s not that many colors to choose from.
- If you like a matte finish, then this compact isn’t for you since the finish is a “dewy” look.
I highly recommend the Hera UV Mist Cushion if you like a dewy finish without looking cakey. Since I got the N, it doesn’t provide great coverage but just enough to even out my skin tone. It provides more of a “natural” look so people can’t tell you have foundation on. I also like how convenient it is to bring along in your purse for any additional touch-up needed throughout the day.
Have you used cushion compact before? If so, do you like it? If not, would you consider trying it out?
