I made mention of a Japanese makeup product that I’d share with you following this review on Missha Magic Cushion Moisture SPF 50+/PA+++. Most of the products particularly the base makeup I have tried here (thanks to the testers available at the shops) are in the shades suitable for those who have pink undertone. It has been quite a challenge for me to find that one thing that’ll match my skin even a bit. I’ve been using this since summer. So is this the one? Read on!
A mineral pressed moisturizing powder foundation that gives medium-to-full coverage with a matte finish.
With SPF12 PA++ for added protection against harmful UV rays.
Covers pores, spots, dullness
With brightening effect
Can be used in all seasons
Fluffy sponge included
Available in 4 shades (PO-B1, OC-C1, OC-D1, OC-E1)
Made in Japan
Refill price: 800 JPY (tax not included)
No funky smell
Matte finish but my skin doesn’t look dry
Doesn’t break me out.
Pores are less visible
It has a yellowish undertone (for the shades OC-D1 & OC-E1). Just so you know the OC-E1 seemed a little darker for me. So I switched to OC-D1.
Long-wearing (without sweating)
No need to dampen the sponge upon application
easy to blend
Traveling with this isn’t inconvenient at all.
Can’t really cover up scars and spots.
Contains two types of paraben-based preservatives (methyl and ethyl parabens). Studies say parabens are generally harmless when used in low percentages. That being said, I can’t be too complacent especially when the percentage isn’t even written in the ingredients.
If not for the parabens in it, this could have been the one for me. I’m still searching for a paraben-free product that’ll match my yellowish undertone. In the meantime, I’ll continue using this. I don’t use it on daily basis, though.
Have you tried this before? If so, what do you think?
