Laneige BB Cushion - Review/ First Impressions

Hey Biscuits,
Today's post is about the Laneige BB Cushion!
I recently got it in the mail and today is the second day I am using it.
So here is my review of the product so far.. Please note this is my first bb cushion that I have ever owned or used!

Firstly, packaging is incredible. One of the main reasons why I chose the Laneige over the Etude house was because of the beautiful packaging. Trust me, I was so tempted to purchase Etude's cushion because of it's price point. It has crisp white lines and is very sturdy, almost similar to Lancome's miracle cushion but not as expensive.

Application is easy to use, it comes with a little blue sponge/puff that makes blending easy. However, the applicator does get a bit of the product on the white area. But that doesn't bother me, I mean every applicator, especially the ones that comes in compacts get excess product.

Coverage is light to medium. I would definitely use a primer first, don't just apply to blank canvas.
Yesterday, I tried it with primer and it held up very nicely without getting cakey. But today, I tried it without primer and you can see that it doesn't look as smooth. So I think it is similar to any other foundation, you NEED primer. This is also very friendly for everyday use. I mean who has time to pull out their foundation routine every morning? I certainly don't!

Fragrance, I come to notice that many Korean cosmetics like to put a floral fragrance in it. I know that it bothers some people and the smell from sample I received from Target was very potent as well. The scent is on the light floral makeup smell side. So I was really glad that the full size wasn't heavily fragrance like the sample. I will highly recommend you to ask for a sample from target before you buy the full size. I wouldn't want you to waste your money.

Color range, I personally purchased the shade 21, and I think it is pretty close to my shade. However, Lancome has 11 shades! Overall, my skin looked brighter and and more evenly toned. It is so lightweight on my skin and so portable. But let's be honest, mine is going to stay at home because I don't want to scratch the packaging LOL! I am so happy to have this item in my makeup collection. I'll cherish it forever.


P.S. It comes with a refill!
