Beauty Talks: Laneige BB Pore Control Cushion!

Finally... I am back with another beauty review! Hope all of you are doing fine lately. So let's get on the topic~ This is not a sponsored post. I paid for it and decided to share it to you since it is such a good product and I always believe sharing on things that work for me!!
 Introducing the Laneige BB Pore Control Cushion!

I am using shade 21
I really love their packaging, so sleek and pretty! ^~^

I've been searching for a good BB Cushion that doesn't clog my pores and causes any breakout since last year! After searching high and low and looking out for reviews on the best bb cushion... I finally found one!

I can't believe till now I still have the bunch of Brand X, Y, Z which has been lying around my make up table since 2014. Why? That's because I stop using it since all of them didn't work well on my skin and I find it a waste if I would to throw them away! Anyone feel me!!! What a waste of money! SAD GIRL.

Ever since I found the right one, I did not regret investing my money on a slightly more expensive Korean brands especially on Foundation (Laneige). Oh yes, their products are expensive (at least to me) because I really don't find the need to spend so much on just one product itself, that is why I've been using a lot of Innisfree products cause they works really well for me! Not to forget about how affordable and strong eco-friendly as a cosmetic/skincare brand! However, I cannot deny that I was disappointed in their BB Cushion... cause previously it breaks me out so bad. Maybe I guess the reason of breaking out from it.. could be either their ingredients that are too strong for my sensitive skin or the consistency is thick and not suitable for a daily wear.

Nonetheless, I found the perfect BB Cushion for myself! I have been using it since December 2014!!!! I don't intend to switch anymore unless I found a better one! For now, I decided to stick with Laneige BB Pore Control Cushion because it works damn well for me! 
 This is how the BB Cushion looks like from the inside. It comes with a puff & a clear mirror which will be very useful when you touch up your foundation in the public. 

Apparently I had no idea why the instructions are in English because previously the ones I bought are in Korea Language... but that doesn't matter that much la.

When I first tested their product on their counter, I told the staff that I wanted a shade to make me look slightly fairer. Had a hard time choosing because there are two shades which I wanted and now I decided to pick Shade 21 since I find that the colour will suit my skin colour better but slightly fairer. Hehe, is this consider a scam to people? lol, I am dying for a fairer skin!! 
 Showing you how the brand new puff looks like! The air puff is actually a ruby cell puff, it feels soft when applied. 

Downside?
The thing that we definitely cannot avoid when using BB Cushion, yes the puff gets dirty easily after uncountable times of usage, I can't be bothered washing the puff. It's either I get another new ruby cell puff or I use my foundation brush as an application. Brushes work fine! 

I did a light press on the cushion.. for a better view. I really didn't want to dirty my cushion too! Hahahaha oops.

Pros & Cons
Pros
  • Gives off a semi dewy finish
  • Pretty and clean packaging
  • Comes with SPF50 (Which is an extra protection on top of your sunscreen!)
  • Medium Pore coverage
  • Doesn't break me out
  • Slightly hydrating to the skin
  • Comes with a refill pack in the box 
  • Cover redness well
  • Lasting power up to 5 - 6 hours
Cons
  • Puff gets dirty very easily
  • Doesn't cover big  and active acne
  • Expensive for a BB Cushion
  • Doesn't cover dark blemishes very well

So here's a picture of me having my full makeup done (Include Laneige BB Cushion as the base)
Teehee.
 I hope my review may be helpful for you if you're looking out for Laneige BB Pore Control Cushion! It is really good! I've been a loyal fan to this BB Cushion since December 2014 ^~^ Oh yes, I am currently working on a new video so please be patient and keep a look out if you're keen!!! *Hugs*

Thanks for reading!

    1. Hi!

      Nope, apparently this is the first bb cushion that works well on my skin! No break-outs for me~
      But keeping the sponge clean is essential as it plays a part in breaking out at some point of time!

  2. Omg so happy to see this post! I bought Innisfree long wear cushion and it breaks me out ... Small little white heads or pumps here n there after I used a few times.. Very sad! As I really like the matte finish of innisfree. I'm looking for alternative and I might give Laneige a try! I have used western products such as MAC , NARS, Chanel , Dior foundations so far no problem . Don't know what's wrong with innisfree
