Recently, Laneige has launched a new foundation called Snow BB Soothing Cushion. The packaging looks like a compact powder, but truth is – it is not! It’s actually liquid foundation in a compact!
Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion is a unique BB with advanced formulation to help women freshen up quickly and providing protection for the skin under the hot blazing sun. Among some of its unique functions are brightening and whitening effects on the skin, sun protection with SPF 50+ PA+++, providing a refreshing and cooling sensation, evening out skin tone, and gives a longer lasting makeup.
Comes in a cute sponge and full size mirror, it’s still not too thick to be slipped into your handbag or makeup pouch.
Shade: Natural Beige
Once you flip open the lid, be ready to be surprised by the look of it!
I had to admit that I was disgusted by the look of it, erm, foundation, seriously?
It looks almost like the sponge for stamps in post office to me!
Of course, the great experiment had to start with a single touch 😉
Once you press your finger down the sponge, you will immediately understand the logic of it – which is a sponge soaked with liquid foundation! Awesome!
I like the design of the sponge, it’s in dark blue, and it doesn’t soak up your foundation as the pores on the sponge are tiny. It’s easy to use and the wastage is minimal.
I actually love how the foundation look on me! The coverage is almost perfect with just single layer, and it leaves a cooling sensation on your skin within the first minute of application.
Best part is – it stays on almost the entire day plus a lunch walk under the sun!!! I have combination skin, and I usually have to retouch with compact powder again after lunch.
However with this Snow BB Soothing Cushion, my foundation lasts for the entire 10 working hours 😉 And it helps blusher to stay on too 😀 Mega plus point for me!
Overall, I am really liking this foundation, it is easy to use, good coverage, and awesome staying power! The downside is, like all Laneige foundation, it has this fragrance that I don’t fancy, it’s especially strong once you apply, luckily it disappears pretty quickly so if I am liking the result, I am willing to sacrifice my nose for a while.
I am not sure how long a compact will last, it might dry up if you leave it unused for too long. And also, it only comes in 3 shades, it looks dark in the pan, but once applied, it evens out.
Caring for sponge:
Gently massage in lukewarm water with neutral detergent or puff cleanser to wash. Rinse thoroughly until the detergent is washed away, squeeze out moisture and dry completely in cool, dry place.
