Three words…I love Laneige. I like practically everything about how this Korean brand is represented, advertised, and I like the subtle prestige of the quality I’ve tested in the boutique at Shangrila. I’ve just never been brave enough to buy anything ‘coz I didn’t need anything at the time and believe it or not this brand is totally overpriced in Singapore. I even appreciate the way the makeup on the girls in the ads is on but toned down in a classy way (check their awesome site here, choose English) . I came home yesterday with this press gift, one of Laneige’s more unique base items, the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion compact and my experience within a span of 3-4 hours with it was kind of like a Pride and Prejudice romance. I wasn’t too keen about that dewy finish at first…yes, at first, then time DID tell. I’ll get to the details in a sec.
New-concept: Whitening + Sunscreen + Sweat-proof + Soothing + Makeup Effects SPF 50+ PA+++ (Shade 21 Natural Beige)
- Skin Types : ALL SKIN
- Size : 15G
I know what you’re thinking, looking at that you’re probably like letting out a “WTH” thought bubble. Trust me, it’s not as strange as you think and it’s not that dark on the skin, that’s just how it looks in the compact. That in there is a sponge soaked with a BB cream formula.
“Bright and Clear Whitening Care + Strong Sunscreen Effect
Contains White Plus Renew Complex™, the major ingredient of Laneige White Plus Renew, for bright and clear skin. Moreover, its SPF 50+ PA+++ formula blocks UV rays even under strong sunlight. High molecules strong against sweat and sebum form a network to create an elastic barrier on the surface of makeup to hold makeup and UV screen on for a long time. Also, highly elastic cushion powder holds up the makeup barrier that can easily be collapsed by sweat and sebum for long-lasting makeup even with one layer.“
I was supposed to show my finger afterwards but I couldn’t get a decent photo after this shot with one hand, sorry LOL. Basically I had liquid base product on my fingertip as if I had dipped it into a bottle. Read more to see how the product looks applied on my face.
