Moisture-lasting CC cream for a vibrant, lively complexion. It reduces wrinkles and brightens skin.
Full coverage formula with ultra-natural finish. The formula was designed to sit close to skin, giving it a smooth and natural finish without making the makeup look heavy as it covers redness and discolorations for a picture perfect complexion.
Luminous finish for vibrant complexion. Formulated with Rose Oil and Lavender Oil, this cushion makeup with intense coverage gives your skin a vibrant appearance and provides a feeling of relaxation to tired skin. It creates a bright finish as the formula stays true to its color without turning luminous.
Special treatment with Hyaluronic Acid for moisturizing, elasticity-enhancing, and volume adding effects. The formula contains micro-molecule Hyaluronic Acid that immediately boosts skin’s moisture content, giving skin a supple, bouncy texture.
Application and Precautions:
Press the puff applicator to the cushion and lightly pat onto the face. Apply over areas of concern for more coverage.
Replace the cushion with refill once the formula is depleted.
Discontinue use if irritation or rash appears. Do not use on broken or abraded skin. Keep out of reach of children. Do not expose to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight.
My Experience with The Face Shop CC Intense Cover Cushion:
Beginning with the packaging of the product. The cushion foundation comes in a classy pure white tub. The lid is also white in color with a silver colored brand logo embossed at the center of this lid. This tub comes housed in a cardboard box with silver detailing. Once you open this press-open lid, you can see a small sponge puff resting on the small tray or safety cover.
Below the safety cover, comes the CC cushion. I already had an extra case that I had got for free with The Face Shop Oil-Control Water Cushion Foundation. Therefore, I had to buy just the refill. Overall, the packaging is very classy and travel-friendly.
There comes a nice and soft sponge applicator with an amazing quality. The product is very easy to use. Just apply the CC in light press and release motions. The sponge blends it effortlessly into the skin in no time. The sponge is soft, smooth and dense enough. It does not drink up a lot of product and provides great coverage and a polished airbrush finish with dabbing.
The CC cushion comes in four shades, out of which I got the second shade called Dark Beige. This shade perfectly suits my skin tone. So, I am glad that I found my perfect match. The CC cushion comes in the form of a soft sponge containing some liquid makeup that comes out with a little dabbing of the sponge applicator over it.
The CC cushion has a very thin and lightweight texture. It blends very easily and gives a seamless, natural-looking finish. It never looks patchy and it does not emphasise dry patches of my skin. I have large skin pores, which look somewhat minimised as this product gives a blurring effect to the skin. The CC cushion gives some sheer coverage. Therefore, it hides very little skin imperfections. It is not capable of hiding dark acne scars or blemishes, of course. It does not look cakey on the skin.
It gives a healthy and natural-looking glow to the skin. It instantly brightens up the dull face. It is a great option to be used on a daily basis when you do not want to put on heavy makeup. It does not clog my skin pores. It never causes any acnes or skin breakouts either. The formula is quite lightweight and it does not make my skin oily. It gives a lovely dewy finish to the skin. The CC cushion comes with SPF 50 PA+++ which makes it good enough to be used during daytime. It prevents the skin from harmful sun rays.
My skin stays properly moisturized and hydrated with this product. It claims to control oil but it could not keep my skin oil free for more than 2 hours or so. The lasting power of this cushion foundation is around 5-6 hours on my skin without any primer underneath. Overall, I currently love using these CC cushion and cushion foundation by The Face Shop.
