Review: Laneige BB Cushion

Hello!

I have used BB creams since ’08/’09?  I don’t really remember but it was when it started to become popular. BB Cream is a staple in my collection because its what I wear on days where I don’t feel like doing my makeup but I need something light. Its one of those products that is good to have around. When this concept of a cushion BB cream was on the market its one of those extremely intriguing things that a beauty addict wont be able to pass on.

I chose the Laneige Cushion BB because it is actually the most easily accessible given that its available at Target! I’m not sure if all cushion BB comes with a refill but mine did which was really nice because this definitely does not have as much product as a tube of BB cream.

I have been meaning to write this review since last year but never got around to it so I figured this is the perfect time to write one because I just finished my first pack. The refill is very easy to pop in and out so the refill process is extremely easy. With the refill, it also comes with a new pad so if your old one was getting a bit used and old then no worries because you have a new one!

Like most BB Creams, the shade selection is not great with only 2 that is catered more towards the lighter skin tones. the coverage is light to medium but more towards the lighter end. You can build it up by layering more on but I have found that the more I layer on, the quicker my skin will get oily. Generally I would have to blot about 3.5-5 hours in because it is not good at controlling oil at all.

I would recommend this to be part of a on-the-go makeup kit because of how simple and easy it is to use. You don’t have to worry about bringing an extra brush or if your hands are clean to apply this. Although this is a lighter formulation I don’t find myself relying on this during the hotter months because it is more on the moisturizing spectrum. If you have dry skin then this would work for you  but for me that has combination skin its a bit trickier. I like to have this as an option in my collection but its definitely not part of my everyday routine.

Have you tried other cushion BB that you would recommend?

Until next time,
❤ Jess
