Unfiltered Series: Clarins Cushion Foundation

I went to Dublin a few weeks ago and when I got there, I realized that I forgot to pack my foundation and concealer. Hey, at least I had the beauty blender with me lol. I’ve no problem going barefaced outside, but I wanted to take photos on my trip and Easter was right the next day, so I wanted to put some foundation on. As I was walking around downtown Dublin, I came across a department store. When I walked inside, I saw all those beauty brands but what caught my attention was the cushion foundation from Clarins. I said to myself “I need to buy you!”.

Another thing I noticed is that in Europe, all the big beauty brands (European ones), have come out with cushion foundations. But they don’t have those cushions available for the US market, interesting.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with what a cushion foundation is, it’s basically a compact foundation that comes with a puff which can be used to apply the product. It’s easy to apply and you can carry the compact everywhere you go!

Anyway, shall we begin?

What I like

✿ Medium coverage (it really covers up pimples and dark circles)

✿ Has SPF (yay!)

✿ Long lasting

✿ Keeps your skin moisturized throughout the day

✿Easy to apply

✿It’s for all skin types

✿Dewy finish (I used not to like the glowy look, but it has started growing on me. I especially like it if I go for an everyday look)

Before and after

Before and after


What I don’t like

✿The puff isn’t great at blending so you need to apply the product two times in the area you want to cover

✿ The scent. It smells like a face cream.

In other words, I really like the cushion and I didn’t expect it to like this much especially when I bought it in a hurry. I think this product is great for everyday makeup!
