Laneige isn’t just a skin care company, they actually do have a line of complexion correcting BB Cushion SPF 50+ shades, which I am really excited about.
As mentioned these BB Creams have a broad-spectrum SPF of 50 and come in shades Light, Medium and Dark. They have “Cushion Form” technology and the application is supposed to hydrate, cover, brighten and soothe all skin types all day long. It blurs fine lines, helps cover pores and blemishes, and evens out your skin tone.
They come in a box and that includes the compact with product/applicator inside as well as a refill of the color.
The packaging is a cute little white and silver compact which opens up to reveal a mirror and an antimicrobial applicator puff.
Open the little tab, which opens to the left, and then you see the makeup infused into a squishy sponge. Once done using, close the tab tightly to keep the product moist, which makes it last longer.
Light is a light neutral/yellow shade which is a little too light for me right now, but may work in the winter.
Medium is a medium neutral/yellow which works for me really well right now.
Dark is a neutral/yellow dark shade.
In the above photo Light actually doesn’t look too light for me. I still think Medium works just a little bit better though.
This was my first experience using a squishy sponge-y makeup like this and it was kind of fun! I know I’m weird, I like strange textured things. When I first pressed the applicator into the color I did it way too much not realizing how much this stuff spreads out. You don’t need a lot, it smooths out over the face really nicely and smoothly. It does a great job of concealing imperfections, little veins and pores. It has a slightly dewy finish, but not overly so. I did powder down my t-zone in the above photo because it was just a little too shiny for me there that day.
It wears really well and I never felt like I needed to touch it up because it was disappearing. I did touch up the t-zone with a little bit of powder after 6-8 hours. I really like how it feels really cooling as you’re applying it. Great for summer or any hot day!
Color me impressed, I dig it.
Is anything from Laneige on your list yet?
