Hera UV Mist Cushion

Hera 1Hera 2Hera 3Hera 4One 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:

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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.

Verdict:

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?

  • man….hands down to you! I really want to try this. I have damaged skin so dewy doesn’t really work for me..probably will look like “fresh out of the gym” hmm thanks for the intro! I’m googling it now~~

    • You should definitely try it out especially if you use BB cream. What?! Your skin doesn’t look damaged at all!! Just make sure you wear sunscreen!

  • I don’t understand…. well, i guess i sort of do. do u wear foundation daily?? or just every once in a while.. i don’t think i’ve worn foundation in a while.. just spot concealer here and there. is that bad??

    • Hahah i think just wearing spot concealer is fine. It’s like a cross between bb cream and foundation but you don’t have to wear it everyday. Just whenever you want to look more “put together”.
