I know it might be a bit late to talk about this cushion, but I guess as long as the product still exist, it will never be too late :-).
As I have oily face, I always seek a product that really able to reduce it on my face. So, when I saw this product, I attracted to its name called “oil control” and searched some reviews for my consideration. And finally, I bought this through Lazada e-commerce since they offer a special discount. I chose color V201 Apricot Beige that match my skin tone.
Wait no long, I received the product 2 days after I ordered and here my first impression regarding The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion.
I have to admit that this cushion is well packaged, form its design with pastel color creating attractive impression. Going to the cushion container, with white color and silver chrome circling around and transparent acrylic on top lid make this cushion looks elegant yet lux.
This cushion also has similar design like other brands. Having a whole circle mirror inside attached on the lid, air puff applicator placed on top the separator before the cushion.
As usual, most product writes its excellence claim of benefits. Let’s hear what it says:
Oil Control Water Cushion
All Proof: Moist Cover + Fresh Fit + Long Lasting
SPF 50+ PA+++
Cushion foundation recharge skin with moisture while controlling sebum for long lasting freshness.
Moist cover effect promotes a healthy look while covering up imperfections and pigmentation. Sebum control formula helps reduce shine and keep makeup stay in perfect condition for hours. New microfoam keeps makeup feel as fresh as when it is first applied.
Microfoam cushion with microfiber helps protect the formula fresh. It also helps makeup go on evenly for more meticulous and coverage.
Now let’s check the real proof of the claim.
Using cushion is apparently a way more convenient since it has applicator, so we can keep our finger clean and more hygienic. Thus, we have to remember to wash the puff periodically to stay hygiene.
In applying the cushion, simply tap the puff on the cushion and dab it onto our face evenly.
This TFS cushion only give you a sheer to medium coverage. It can’t cover most flaws like acne scars and redness, but build able without making cakey look. I think it is wise to use in daily basis but for formal or special event, you still need concealer or other foundation with high coverage for flawless look.
Most review I read stated that it can last at least 6 to 8 hours till the sebum re-appear. But for me it only can stand for 4 hours and the oil start to emerge thought its not in hyper mode. I need to slightly dab with facial tissue to cast away the oil. No need to retouch since the liquid still mighty stand on my face.
Moist cover effect promotes a healthy look while covering up imperfections and pigmentation.
Sorry to say, it doesn’t cover my reddish acne scars. Maybe it will be effective for light imperfections.
Sebum control formula helps reduce shine and keep makeup stay in perfect condition for hours.
I admit this one. Even the oil starts to appear in 4 hours but it doesn’t let the oil flooding on my face. It still acceptable. And yes, the cushion cream still stay perfectly after hours without retouching. I wear the cushion for a long day working hours since applied at 9.00 am.
I don’t regret to buy this cushion but will consider for repurchase since I wish at least medium coverage of foundie. I like the package and the container that easy to go. I love the puff because it is more hygiene than using fingers. This cushion also has a little fragrance scent but won’t disturb your smelling.
Other thing I feel a bit waste is just it has high SPF and PA which it doesn’t necessary for those who work indoor at most. Higher SPF and PA is perfect for those who has most outdoor activity.
