Spotlight | Innisfree Long Wear Cover Cushion.

Time and again I have mentioned it in this blog - when it comes to makeup, I'm a sucker for pretty packaging. And when it comes to cushions, the packaging options at Innisfree are pretty much endless - which is the main reason why I ended up buying yet another cushion during my last trip to Seoul.

With Innisfree's My Cushion line, you can customize everything - from the cushion itself to its shade number, the cushion case, and even the cushion puff. With more than 50 cushion case designs to choose from and at least 12 foundation/cushion shades available, the possibilities are limitless. In the same way, you get to 'build' a cushion that's truly unique and matches your vibe.

My own Innisfree cushion looks like this - a purple case with horizontal stripes, an Air Magic (Fitting) Puff, and the Longwear Cover Cushion in shade N23.

Made with sturdy plastic, the Cushion Case (8000 won each, around $7 or Php 380) is sleek, slim, and lightweight. It's equipped with a mirror, like most compacts and cushions do.

Now as for the Puff (2000 won each, around $1.86 or Php 95), Innisfree has two kinds - the Air Magic Glow, which helps add a dewy look and shimmery shine to the skin; and the Air Magic Fitting, which helps the foundation/cushion 'fit' onto your skin for a smooth and matte finish.

I chose the latter upon the recommendation of the store attendant. He said (yes, it's a he) that the Fitting puff is more suitable for the cushion that I chose, which has a matte finish.
The Fitting puff is brown underneath. The Glow puff, on the other hand, is blue.
Now here's a closer look at the cushion itself.

Product description on the plastic pack.
The Innisfree Long Wear Cover Cushion (12000 won each, around $11 or Php 570) is 'a long-lasting coverage cushion containing Jeju volcanic powder that enables the texture to blend effortlessly leaving a long-lasting smooth, soft matte finish with a weightless, fresh glow.' I chose shade N23 True Beige, which is a nice match for my skin tone.
The cushion comes with a plastic tray to hold the puff and separate it from the product.
Insert the cushion to the case and you're good to go!
True to its claim, this cushion does a good job of covering pores and fine lines and 'blurring out' skin imperfections. It has a lightweight formula, making it ideal for this country's hot and humid weather, and has good, buildable coverage without the sticky, heavy feel. It also has impressive staying power - about 5-6 hours on my face with just a wee bit of touch-up on the corners of my eyes, where this foundation tends to crease most often.
The cushion now inserted in the cushion case.
Like most cushions, the Innisfree Long Wear Cover Cushion looks creamy but once it settles, it leaves your skin with a soft, matte finish. Do note that this foundation has an oil-free formula, making it most suitable for those with oily skin. If you have dry skin or prefer cushions that leave your skin dewy and glowing, this product might fall short of your expectations.
Creamy! :)

I love how this product evens out my skin tone and covers the fine lines on my face without making me look 'too made up'. However, I'm all for that dewy, Korean makeup look so I'll probably save this cushion for the hot summer months when my skin greases up as soon as I step out of the house, lol.

I actually got another cushion case in a different design and color because the cases were on a 1+1 sale at that time. I haven't bought a cushion for it, but I'm leaning towards the Ampoule Intense Cushion. If you've tried this cushion before, do let me know how it worked/works for you. :)

This product looks amazing! I love how smooth and flawless it's made your skin, both in indoor and natural lighting! Gorgeous look! :)

I like that you can easily change out the foundation color, so you only need one case. I think the packaging is great on this product. I really like how you showed hat it looks like in both natural lighting and indoor lighting, I haven't seen that on a make up post before and I think more need to follow by your example

I like natural swatches like these. All these colours suit your tone :) The cushion case is quite handy and good too.

I've never heard about this but it looks like a great product. Must try them to see the look after I use it.

This product looks like such a good idea, I havent seen anything like this before where you only have to buy the one case, such a good idea. It looks great on you too, such a natural glow :)

I had never heard of this before and love the look. Your skin looks so fresh and natural. Even better that you can change out the color for a better match if needed and with less overall packaging better for the environment.

Luci Coo said...

Looks like a really great foundation. You never think about the difference lighting can make.

I've been hearing alot of good things about Innisfree. Haven't tried it myself yet as I always get intimidated by new make up brands. I've only tried 2 Korean brands. Reading your post makes it want to try this one as well.

Marie Angeli Laxa said...

I love the packaging! So cute! And it's so much cheaper than how it retails locally huhu.

Peachy @ The Peach Kitchen said...

Ang ganda ng packaging and I love that it's customizable.

Ayi said...

I know nothing about makeup and cosmetic products in general. Everything seems so alien to me. haha! That's why I enjoy reading entries like this since it makes me want to give it a try :)

Edel San said...

I was tempted to buy Innisfree Cushion the other day but decided against it since I have a newly opened Laneige. But after seeing your post, I wished I bought one.

Tweenselmom said...

Your skin really looks even and smooth. I want something like that!

One Proud Momma said...
