I am so excited to review The Face Shop My Other Bag Limited Edition CC Ultra Moist Cushion with SPF 50+ PA +++ that I got from BBCosmetic.com here! I have purchased a CC cream from The Face Shop a few years ago here and I actually enjoyed it but this wasn't a true cushion, more like a foundation in a compact form. Since, the cushion style foundations have taken over the kbeauty world and I just had to get my hands on this particular cushion. Why? The packaging!! How amazing is this packaging! I got the color V103 Pure Beige.
This cushion states that it is a long lasting, moisturizing CC cream that gives the skin vibrant and healthy coverage. This also claims to reduce wrinkles and brighten the complexion and is formulated with collagen to help improve plump and improve skin's resilience. It also contains calendula, rosemary and lavender extracts, all great ingredients to calm, soothe, refresh and rejuvenate the skin. This also contains micro-molecule hyaluronic acid for moisturizing and adding volume and bounce. Other key ingredients include niacinamide, echinacea and ceramides. This does contain a soft sweet floral scent that dissipates upon application.
I love the packaging! And in all honestly, I would have bought this purely based on the packaging LOL. It has a matte black case with the beautiful artwork on the cover. The compact features a mirror and ruby cell puff and is refillable.
I am actually really happy with the performance of this product. First, this formula is meant for dry and dull skin so I was a little nervous to how it would work for my normal-combination skin type. I will say that I would probably not use this in the dead of summer when it's hot and humid. This formula is very hydrating and it would probably be too rich for the summer time. However, this cushion has wonderful staying power! It has lasted throughout the day without separating and settling into some of my fine lines.
Here is a before and after. As you can see, the coverage is fantastic without looking heavy or cakey. The color is V103 which is a very close to my skin tone (MAC N3 / NC10). It has a slight peachy tone to it but that helps give my skin some healthy color.
I am in love with this cushion! It makes my skin so glowy and radiant! I was actually wearing this last night for dinner and I ordered a glass of wine and was carded! The server was shocked that I was 40! She said I looked 23 :) Need I say more! But really, this is such a fantastic cushion, the formula, performance and coverage are excellent. I can also easily adjust the coverage from light to full so this is so versatile. Hands down one of my favorite cushion foundations and I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase. Have you tried this cushion? I encourage you all to check it out because it is pretty darn amazing.
