INNISFREE WATER GLOW CUSHION SPF50/PA+++

I did mention that I was obsessing a tad over cushion foundations…and yes, my goal is to try every single cushion foundation out there. In this post I will be looking at the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion which is a cushion that is designed for summer wear for those with dry skin who desire the dewy and radiant finish.

Innisfree Water Glow Cushion

The Innisfree Water Glow cushion is a moisture rich cushion which delivers a radiant and moisturized look. The cushion cools down the skin upon application in order to soothe the skin from any environmental damage whilst also containing a powerful amount of UV protection.

Similarly to most Korean foundations, they come in a limited shade range of about three shades:

  • #13 Light Beige
  • #21 Natural Beige
  • #23 True Beige
I purchased the cushion in the shade #23 True Beige, the darkest shade that is available and yet it was way to light for my skin tone.

You can purchase this product from www.kollectionk.com or the Innisfree website (http://www.innisfreeworld.com/product/productView.do?prdSeq=10662&eventSeq=0&catCd01=UB)

I purchased the cushion from ebay for a friendly price of £12.87.

Packaging

Similar to any other cushion foundation the Innisfree Water Glow compact comes along with a mirror and a non-absorbent dual air puff. The compact is very slim compared to the Etude House Any Mineral cushion which is slightly more bulky.

Formula

The cushion blends and spreads very easily into the skin with minimum effort and time. One of the things that you will notice about the cushion is the scent and the instant cooling sensation. The scents smells like a really nice subtle herbal kind of smell which sort of just fades away after a short while.

On the moisturizing side of things for me I find that wearing this cushion in the hot weather that we now have in London with my combination skin is really too much hydration for my skin however for those with dry skins this maybe just perfect!

Coverage

The cushion provides light – medium coverage so it is very buildable and I found that I did not have to use any concealer to cancel out any scars or blemishes. The more you build the coverage up I find that it looks really heavy and too wet like you just put some foundation on and decided to dip your face into water.

Finish

If you’ve got dry skin and you want a dewy look then this is definitely the cushion for you. You will definitely get a wet dewy effect on your skin whilst also keeping dry skin at bay.

Durability

Just like the Etude House Any Mineral cushion I found that the durability of the Water Glow cushion is about 4 hours before it requires some touching up but I hear that in Korea 4/5 hours before touching up your makeup again is normal.

My Thoughts

I did not like the cushion at all because the shade of the cushion was just too light for my skin and I could not get it to work with my skin tone even after applying bronzer. The cushion also delivers a very wet dewy look which I found looked too wet. I do love the dewy effect however in this case its way too dewy for my liking.
