Trust Korean beauty brands to come up with a BB cushion that is luxurious, intensely high coverage, highly buildable and is designed to sit close to your skin giving you a dewy, ultra natural, super flawless finish. And what’s more, its got SPF 50+ PA+++ that will protect you against harsh UV rays. Could you ask for more? Chuck that gluggy foundation and get involved with this miracle BB.

As much as this sounds like a sponsored post or an ad right off the press release of the product, it’s neither. I’ve never been big on wearing foundation – its takes time and effort to wear it well and makes me visualize my pores being stuffed with product. However non-comedogenic these products might be, I just can’t be bothered to wear moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, foundation…so on and so forth!

But, this BB is genius in a pot. Just dab on your usual moisturizer and top it off with this BB. Its high coverage and adhesiveness makes it ideal for wear without concealers or colour correctors. It helps even out and brighten skin-tone, adds a subtle glow, looks fresh and dewy, doesn’t cling on to dry patches, can be built to intensify coverage under eyes, claims to reduce wrinkles, takes care of sun exposure and feels so light on the skin that you even forget you are wearing any makeup! And oh yes, it lasts for hours, even if you forget to powder. It contains Hyaluronic acid, which is supposed to boost the skin’s moisture content and give you supple, hydrated, glowing skin.

And let me not get started on the black and gold packaging with the beautiful brand emblem on the top! Pure luxury. The plush navy sponge provided with the cushion is of such fine quality – it is perfect for application and doesn’t absorb any product or get stained. Its small size makes it ideal to get into nooks, under eyes, around the nose etc. And to make it all just perfect, it’s even got a little mirror!

I am brown-skinned with a fair-medium skin tone, and I use the shade V205, Dark Beige. For me, this shade is like second skin

As long as you use gentle tapping motions to allow the product to sink into your skin and build it up evenly, you’ve got yourself a winner. The pot, like most others in the market is reusable. For your next purchase, you can buy the cushion alone.

It is reasonably priced in India, considering that the quality and packaging are both top-notch. It is available for online purchase at Nykaa. I have been trying to get my hands on their BB cream as well, but with no luck as these brands have a very narrow selection of shades suiting Indian skin tones.

Until next time, always make room for more beauty in your life. XOXO
