Current Obsession: Sooryehan Bichaek Jadan Metal Cushion Foundation

tellmeyblog - Sooryehan Bichaek Jadan Metal Cushion Foundation - after (5)Cushion foundation or cushion compacts are such a big hit on the foundation market for the past few years. While this lovechild of the cosmetic and skincare worlds has been sworn by so many of my friends and fellow beauty junkies, I didn’t jump on the bandwagon until I met Sooryehan Bichaek Jadan Metal Cushion Foundation.

The reasons I have been holding myself back from cushion compacts are simple:
a. the liquid foundation in the cushion is constantly exposed to air which doesn’t sound very hygienic to me;
b. I need high SPF in my foundation for the extremely strong Aussie sun.

So even though I love how luminous the results are from the cushion compacts, most of them don’t meet these two criteria. One day I saw this Sooryehan Bichaek Jadan Metal Cushion Foundation in a Taiwanese beauty show, and I knew I have found my cushion compact.

The foundation comes in two shades: #21 and #23. The one I got from Yes Style is #23, which is a very natural beige colour. For those with fairer skins, you may want to go with #21. Both shades can be found on Yes Style, ebay, and Amazon.

Each set comes with an extra refill which is absolutely a steal.

But what’s so special about this cushion compact, you ask? Sooryehan is one of the many beauty brands owned by LG (yes, the same LG that makes smartphones and electronic appliances). The Bichaek Jadan Metal Cushion Foundation is equipped with a LG patented metal cushion. The metal plate helps retaining moisture in the foundation and prevents its temperature from fluctuating.

Look how pretty it is with its snowflake like pattern on the metal plate!

Gently press on the metal plate, and it will release a finer quantity of foundation for more buildable control, aka you can get the last drop out of your cushion compact!

Moving on to the meat of today’s review, here’s my lacklustre face during period…

Doesn’t matter if you are using this Sooryehan foundation or not, cushion compact is all about dabbing. Instead of smearing the foundation onto your face, tap your sponge into the cushion (in this case, gently press on the metal plate) and then dab it on your whole face. If you want extra coverage for particular areas, go back for a little bit more foundation and dab away.

Just a thin layer of the foundation and the glow is restored on my face.

The formula is infused with Ginseng, Vitamin B3 and other herbal essence to hydrate and brighten your skin. It also contains Adenosine, which is an anti-wrinkle ingredient. It really feels like mixing your skin care products with your foundation.

Once I take care of my face, all I need is some light makeup to finish the whole I-woke-up-like-this look and leave the house.

This lightweight foundation is dewy but not over the top. The coverage is sheer but it brightens your complexion instantly. It also comes with a SPF 50+ PA+++, and stays put for hours! I am totally in love with it now!
