THE FACE SHOP | Miracle Finish Cushion - What You Need To Know

On Cushion Foundations

Cushion foundations. Let's talk about them for a minute. So recently I have been giving a go at The Face Shop's Miracle Finish Cushion Foundations and I have to say that it has made my makeup routine a whole lot easier. Reason being is not only is it convenient to carry around, but the formulation makes my skin really radiant and fresh, just like I had just stepped out of the shower and took a good look into the mirror.

On the two new products from The Face Shop

Now we all know that The Face Shop has been giving their store and products a fresh new facelift and with it's latest concept that exudes classic elegance, these new compacts are packaged with a rather luxury design and wrapped sophistication. There are six variants in the collection which will be listed below, but kindly note that each of them cater to a specific skin preference, hence their ingredient list may vary from each other.

Miracle Finish Cushion | 6 Variants

  • BB Power Perfection Cushion
  • CC Long-Lasting Cushion
  • CC Cooling Cushion
  • CC Ultra Moist Cushion
  • CC Intense Cover Cushion
  • TFS Oil Control Water Cushion

The Other Varieties

However what I do find particularly nice about the entire range is that the brand did not compromise on three factors within the ingredients listed, and thus included Hyaluronic Acid (Moisture Effect), Skin-like Ceramide (prevent loss of moisture) and Micro Collagen (Anti-Aging) within all 6 of their cushions.

On the packaging

It also has a Micro Foam cushion that has 4 times higher cell density than any regular cushion to even out skin pressure during application, and this on overall prevents the product from shifting or flaking in order to created a smooth and flawless finish.

The Cushion

Now to give a little breakdown on the compacts, you will notice that here I have two, one in a pure white packaging and another a black with a gold accent. The white compromises of three which is the CC Ultra Moist Cushion, CC Intense Cover Cushion as well as the TFS Oil Control Water Cushion; while the black holds the BB Power Perfection Cushion, CC Long- Lasting Cushion and CC Cooling Cushion.

A little summary to what each of them do as well as to which would suit to what type of skin preference will be listed below so no worries, but do take a special note of the CC Intense Cover for this particular formulation does well under the Malaysian weather and gives a beautiful finish that can last up to 4-6 hours of wear without touch up.

When Applied on the face

Now on overall, the two foundations that I found that worked really well for dry skin was the Intense Cover Cushion and Cooling Cushion. The coverage for both are lovely and doesn't give too much of a cakey feel and is extremely lightweight on the skin. Each of these cushions also retail at RM104.83 (inclusive of GST). In addition, The Face Shop also has it's refill at RM58.90 (excluding GST), so once you are done with your compact, you can simply head over to get a refill.
