Missha X Line Friends Magic Cushion in #23 Review
*This post is not sponsored. Item is bought with my own money and review is done with my own honest thoughts.*
BOUGHT FROM: Missha
Hello hello, readers! I’m finally here with my Missha review! I’m putting up the BB cushion review first then I’ll get into the lip products 🙂 This would be quite a heavy post so let’s get started!
The packaging is really, really adorable!! For those who aren’t familiar with Line, Line is a messaging app and the character on the casing is one of their mascots 🙂
The packaging is actually the main reason I bought this product lmao I’ve never tried or heard much about Missha cushions, so I figured that I’ll just give it a shot. And hey, no regrets.
For ₩11.600, you get a cute casing, and 2 extra refills.
The box itself has more details at the back, like so
So this product basically claims that:
– It improves wrinkles
– It has whitening features
– It can act as a sunblock (SPF 50/PA+++)
– It can cover
– It won’t darken over time
As for what the BB is made of:
– Has silica bead powder to absorb sweat and sebum for longer lasting make up
– Has bamboo water and baobab fruit extract for moisture
– Has witch hazel extract to soothe the skin
** Has PEG-8 Dimethicone (Synthetic skin protecting agent)
** Has Cetyl PEG (Silicon-baser polymer for skin conditioning)
** Has PEG-32 (Thickening agent)
** Has Phenoxyethanol (Preservative)
** Has Aroma
**Ingredients may trigger reactions
The cushion casing itself is brown since.. well… the character “Brown” is… well.. brown.
It’s like any other BB cushion casing out there.
At the back of the casing is the BB’s basic info and claims that were mentioned above. Oh and, an expiration date. This expires 2018, but once opened, you only have 12 months to use it up.
Once opened, say hello to this cute puff!!
It has Brown still printed all over the puff!
The bottom part is the usual blue puff, no Brown face printed on this time lol
AND HEY HEY HEY I CLEANED MY PUFF FOR YOU GUYS HAHA
2weeks worth of puff-use does not look very audience-friendly.
The puff picks up a great amount of product and it does fine with blending. No complaints so far 🙂
The BB itself:
On initial patting, it would look like it’s too light, but it would end up fine after you make it set. I’m a #21 in Laneige, and the two are quite close to each other.
It feels… wetter (???) than other cushions that I’ve tried, but it doesn’t feel so sticky and the wet feeling fades off in a few minutes time.
As for the scent.. I can’t point out the exact scent, but it’s faint and I personally don’t find it too disturbing.
I have two swatches below, one with normal lighting and the other with flash. I took both photos about a minute or two after patting them into place.
The finish is semi-matte, semi-dewy. It’s just in between, or more like it provides the key-points of both aspects. It’s pretty moisturizing and it gives off a decent and nice glow like how dewy cushions would. While it also does some work oily skin like how matte cushions would. So whether you’re oily skinned or dry, this would do fine.
Another thing I like about this is how it doesn’t cake much and it doesn’t look too icky over time. It’s not very thick and since the formula is thin, both application and finish is smooth. By the first layer, you can already see the brightening effect and coverage 🙂
The coverage, I would say, is light to medium and it is definitely buildable! As for me though, I’d still use concealer because.. well.. my dark circles and scars are that bad lol
I have photos below of a before-and-after comparison and a bare-and-with comparison 🙂
Do note that:
1. I did not use primer
2. I did not use concealer
3. I only placed on one layer
4..?? lol i took a picture immediately and i didn’t wait for it to fully set lmao darn it
to show you guys how this works alone 🙂
Before and After:
Bare and With:
Talk about whitening lol But it matched my skin better after a few more minutes, I swear! At first, this would make my face look whiter but it later evens out so no worries 🙂
I mentioned that earlier, right- With one layer, my scars have faded, redness has been slightly reduced and my skin has been slightly smoothened out. If you want a more satin and clear finish, then ofcourse you’d have to layer and prep 🙂 I actually took a selfie the other day with this BB on, excuse me as I find it lol
Ah. Here it is lol
So yep. The finish is nice and I like it. Heck, I like this better than The Saem’s and IOPE’s new one.
Longevity is good. After a few hours, it would only look shinier but still not very cakey. I’d say a good 6-8 hours, yeah. It also thank the heavens doesn’t oxidize on me and it is still true to its colour after some hours. 🙂 No to orange-y face this time for me with this cushion! It slightly cracks under my eyes after some time but that can easily be fixed so meh.
Overall, I love this cushion! For the price, this is really worth it! This is definitely in my recommendation list 🙂 Stay tuned for more Missha x Line reviews, coming soon! 🙂
