The Face Shop Miracle Finish Cushions & Moisture Touch Lipsticks

I am a huge advocate when it comes to Korean beauty brands, be it makeup or skincare products. Thanks to the never ending raves online, and hype spurred by the Korean wave.

The Face Shop recently send me a range of their newest products - The Face Shop Miracle Finish Cushions and Moisture Touch Lipsticks.

I had loads of fun testing both of the products out. Here's my take.

RD02 Red Rising (my favorite!)

- Personal Views -

The Moisture Touch series is infused by multiple layers of hydrating serum, that kept my lips moist and conditioned, throughout the day. Despite the matte lipstick hype, I'm not much of a matte person, because my lips chapped so easily, hence I'm really glad these managed to give my lips a moisture boost.

The lipsticks also contains multiple essential oils, hence it does carry with it a bit of mild scent, though tasteless overall.

I wouldn't say that the lipsticks are heavily pigmented (great!), I'd always prefer it to be more versatile when it comes to application. The highly dense color compact system would only require two swipes for a complete finish. Tip: I'd normally line my lips with a layer of lip balm first.

As far as staying power goes, I didn't have to reapply as frequent as I do other lipsticks, just once or twice a day after food.

I love red lipsticks so my favorite was an obvious pick, the vibrant shade of the RD02 Rising Red. The shade easily brightens up my entire face. It's also not too glossy and shiny, just the way I prefer it to be.

The BE01 Beige Bomb on the other hand, would be great fit for a more muted look, whereas the PK02 Pink Flash was a sweet addition, and the CR02 Feel So Coral would make the perfect everyday lipstick.

Cushions are one of those things which I've never experiment enough of. I'm so used to my liquid foundation and compact powder! But the Miracle Finish Cushions - definitely got me going.

The Miracle Finish Cushions comes in an elegant yet sturdy packaging, available in either black or white. The puffs too, are fairly conventional. It's not too thick and picks up and absorbs just enough product for a single application. The Miracle Finish Cushion range comes with sunscreen protection of SPF50+ PA+++.

Tip: Pat and built up when applying. Do not swipe.

Now, let's talk about the cushions.

The cushions that were more fitted for me was the CC Intense Cover Cushion SPF50+ and the BB Power Perfection Cushion SPF50+. My shade is Natural Beige.

I thought the CC Intense Cover Cushion SPF50+ was lightweight and provided surprisingly good coverage on my blemished prone skin. While the cushion is on the heavier side, it pats in easily and covered up the acne marks on my skin, without being overly cakey and thick. The cushion contains a special treatment of micro molecules of hyaluronic acid and flower oil complex care to hydrate the skin. Having said that, it did made my face a little oily as the day goes by, but I have really skin so this was not exactly unexpected. I'd usually pat on some compact powder for longer stay.

The BB Power Perfection Cushion SPF50+ also worked really well on me. It's typically a total skin treatment BB cushion foundation that provides power hydration and color correcting effects. I'm prone to redness, especially on my nose area. The cushion even out my skin tone, provided a medium coverage (obviously not as heavy as the Intense Cover Cushion but it can be built on) and gave my skin a semi-matte finish. It did get a little oily throughout the day, but nothing that an oil blotter can't fix. Again, the formula contains natural moisturizing factor for a more moisturized finish. For it's hydrating, moisturizing and brightening effects, I'd say the BB Power Perfection Cushion SPF50+ would be suitable for all types of skin. 

What I really liked about the Miracle Finish Cushion? The naturally light shimmery and dewy glow it provides.
