Etude House Double Lasting Foundation Review

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be reviewing the Double Lasting Foundation by Etude House in the shade Amber. This is the first base product that I’ve tried from Etude House!

Laneige BB Cushion Medium Review

So I’m not sure why I never reviewed this product before. The Laneige BB Cushion was my very first cushion compact. It is still my everyday go-to for natural base makeup. I decided to spotlight it now because they have recently expanded their shade range from just 3 to 6 colors! Anyone who has looked into Korean foundation or BB creams knows that finding any shades that aren’t extremely light is a struggle! Even as a black woman with comparatively light skin, it has been incredibly difficult; even the darkest shades most Korean brands sell are a bit too light. So I’m so glad that Laneige has expanded their range to suit more skin tones. The Laneige Cushion promises buildable natural coverage that moisturizes while color correcting. I’ll be showing you the wear of the shade Medium. Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Laneige BB Cushion Medium Review”

Missha M Magic Cushion #27 Honey Beige Review

Hi again after a bit of a break! Missha released their much anticipated M Magic Cushion last summer! Since they are known for their amazing BB Creams, it was a big deal. Alas when first released, it only came in two very pale shades so I couldn’t even bother to try it *sigh*. So you can imagine that when they finally expanded the range to include Honey Beige a few weeks ago, I crossed my fingers and immediately scooped one up! The Magic Cushion promises oil control, flawless coverage with no oxidation, and a skin soothing formula. Let’s get down to the details to see how it fared!
