So couple of days ago, I asked you guys to vote on which BB cushion you’d like to see a review on first. If you still haven’t voted, you still can HERE. A lot of you guys wanted to see the Missha x Line friends collection first because, well it is quite new and everyone loves the packaging. I admit, I didn’t need this cushion since I already have two in my collection but the chicken (Sally is it?) is too darn cute to pass up! I know for a fact that in Korea, it was almost sold out immediately and took them two weeks to restock it. That was how popular it was, and totally justified in my opinion since it only costs 11,600 won ($10.11 USD) for the compact that already has a cushion inside and two other refills. That is the cheapest I have seen anywhere! Sadly I don’t think they are running that promotion anymore and have since changed it to the compact, 1 refill and an extra air puff with the Sally design on it which is still not a bad deal for 11,600 won. Let’s get started with the review! 가자!! (⊙ꇴ⊙)
Limited edition/ Permanent?:BB cushion itself is permanent, compact design is limited edition
Description of product:“Magic cushion sponge for a quick & easy make up application! Light weight adherence, buildable coverage, moisturizing, and sun protection benefits with SPF 50+ PA +++”That is the most vague description from Missha US site, so I’ll include a picture of the box just in case for those who can read Hangul.

How to use:If you have never used a BB cushion before, it is super simple. All you have to do is take the flat sponge called the “air puff” and place it through two or three fingers to secure it. Then lightly press the air puff into the cushion which is soaked with the BB cream. BB cushions are slightly different from BB creams, think slightly watered down BB creams that is soaked into a big sponge for easy application. Once you have got the product onto the air puff, stamp it into your face and continue until you feel like you have enough coverage.
Color/ Pigmentation:Since Missha and A’pieu are both under the same company, I thought I would also include swatches of my A’pieu Air fit cushion which is pretty much the exact same product, color wise and formula wise. I personally bought shade #23 because I knew from experience that shade #21 was way too light and had a strong pink undertone. If you like the brightening look, shade #21 would be for you but I prefer #23 for the not so obnoxious vampire look.
Texture/ Finish:When you first apply it to the skin, there is a very subtle dewiness which I absolutely love. I’m not sure if it was because I used the one that I have already opened from the Betty Boop compact, but Missha’s cushion set a lot faster then I remembered. A’pieu’s stays dewy at least 3 hours until it fully sets to a more satin finish, but Missha’s took about 4 minutes. So it really depends on your preference. If you like a more dewy finish, get the Sally one and if you are more of an oily skin type, get the bear one. Sorry I’m really not familiar with Line friends….

Coverage:This product has a light to medium coverage that is buildable. Word of advice, when you apply this BB cushion, don’t apply too much at once. I found it to apply slightly blotchy when I had too much product on the air puff, so do it in thin layers. For me, one layer is enough but you can definitely build it up with two layers for more coverage.
Lasting power:For me on my dry skin, this lasts a good 6 to 8 hours before fading ever so slightly on my cheeks and around my nose area. I don’t like to set my BB cushions since I like the dewiness it gives which also provides extra moisture. So 6 to 8 hours is quite good in my opinion, with no powder to ensure longevity.
Fragrance?:There is a slight soapy floral fragrance but goes away after application. Smell-o-scale: 4/10.
Demo timeee :P. The most fun part of the reviews for me, always!
Skin concerns:-hydration for my dry skin-flakey dead dry skin-dark under eye circles from lack of sleep-slight redness around cheek, nose and chin
Things I look for in my base make up:-hydrating-dewy finish preferred-evens out redness around nose, cheek and chin-does not cling onto dry patches
Pro:-very affordable and comes with refill(s)-nice formula with two versions to suit different skin types-slightly dewy finish, sets to satin finish-shade #23 matches well with my NC25 skintone
Con:-if not careful with application, can settle into fine lines and dry patches
Stars given out of 5:????
Overall thoughts:I couldn’t give this a full 5 stars because of the one or two minor flaws. From my memory of this product, it was the exact same thing as my beloved A’pieu Air fit. However revisiting this BB cushion has solidify that might not be the case. I still like my A’pieu one better for the sole fact that it stays dewy longer and doesn’t catch onto my dry patches but instead kind of glides over it. Overall I think this is a good product and I will continue to use it since I have 4 backs ups at this point. But when it comes time to repurchasing, I’ll stick to A’pieu.
