Sulwhasoo is a Korean high-end cosmetic brand that has dominated Asian beauty market for years. The idea of cushion foundation was unknown to me, yet fascinating.
Because I’m trying to be mindful with my spending right now, I only purchased the refill I already know that I don’t need to carry it around, so the compact isn’t a must anyway.
My experience with the Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion has been very pleasant.
The foundation feels feather light, hydrating and leaves the skin a dewy finish. It never fails to make my skin look radiant and healthy.
It has a nice, cooling effect the moment that it touches your skin but fades away quickly. I’ve never experienced anything like this before, so it was mind boggling to me. I thought that was pretty cool and from what I heard, all cushion foundations should do this.
I always apply the foundation with the puff that came with it, which works great with the foundation. I used tapping motion and then blend it out with wiping motion. I’ve find that I don’t really need to work hard to achieve the seamless look, the foundation just melts on your skin. Ah, beautiful!
The Evenfair Perfecting Cushion evens out my skin tone, has almost a medium coverage and is also long-lasting. It lasted over 10 hours on my skin, but some oiliness did come through, mainly on the t-zone. Most importantly, it kept my skin moisturized all day – no flakiness, baby. Note: finishing powder and concealer are still needed.
I don’t know how to describe the fragrance to you, but it smells very nice, sophisticated and has a slight ginseng/herbal smell to it, very settle. I think that’s part of Sulwhasoo’s signature scent.
I probably will purchase the full package, since I really enjoy using the Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion. The package should include 2 refills, 2 puffs and the compact. The compact is really pretty.
They have 4 shades and I picked up the darkest shade which is no. 25 Deep Beige, and it’s a perfect match for me at the moment. If I’m going to repurchase it again (fall/winter time), I think I need to go a shade lighter.
I think the Sulwhasoo cushion foundation is great for normal, dry and combination skin. The dewiness can be a problem for oily skin.
