This Sample-Ready Saturday I’m reviewing a sample of the Laneige BB Cushion, which I received in a Target Beauty Box, I believe. I also tried it a few years ago when Target first started carrying Laneige. For those unfamiliar with BB Cushions, they’re basically a compact with the BB cream liquid and a foam insert that comes soaked in the liquid. Recommended application is with another pad. Here’s more information from the sample and what the sample and full-size looks like.
The formula is very moisturizing and it gives a dewy finish. To be honest, I’m not sure if I like using cushions. I usually apply foundation with a brush. It’s fast and ensures even coverage. However, using a sponge results in a more flawless finish but takes more time to apply.
I used the lightest shade, Light. When I used this a few years ago, Light was a perfect match for my skin. However, this time, it was a little bit dark for my skin. I think my skin may have gotten lighter as opposed to a reformulation.
I think this cushion would be wonderful in the winter when my skin is a little drier, but in the summer, it’s just too dewy for me. Going to try out a few other BB cushions and see if I find another one I like better.
Have you tried BB Cushions before? What are some of your favorites?
