April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Black 2.0

May 13, 2017

Assalamualaikum and hello! It's been awhile since I posted my last product review. My life is super hectic now but let's just say Alhamdulillah for everything. Okay. for this post I'm super duper excited of buying and getting this product at the first place. This is because, I heard a lot of good things about this product and I'm pretty sure why :)

I have never interested in cushion foundation/bb/cc cushion before. This is because I know cushion usually gives you a dewy effect and have low coverage. Since I have an acne prone and oily skin, those kinds of products should be avoided and what I need is matte, oil control and medium to high coverage. However, since my foundation is almost finish and I dont want to buy heavy foundation anymore since I'm pregnant right now, so I thought why not of trying cushion for once, right?

I logged in to Hermo.my and started to browse and I saw April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Black 2.0. People say, dont judge a book by it's cover but hey... this cushion caught my attention on the sleek black packaging. After reading some reviews and watching youtube review, I decided to get mine. 

After few days, I was so excited to receive my parcel. This is the look of the box. The box was made by non-glossy material and decorated by gold fonts and border. It looked fancy. It was sealed properly and for the packaging, I have no complains at all. All is well. 

As I opened the box, I could see the cushion and I thought it was so smart. The container is all black and the fonts were in gold. It looked so exclusive and the material itself not just like other cushion. It was non-glossy container, not  like a usual cushion container would be.

When I opened the lid, I can see a typical cushion sponge but in black colour.  After that, there was a mirror attached to the lid. Not that important, but I kinda disappointed with the quality of mirror of this cushion. I mean, the mirror is a dull one and you could possibly can see your reflection on the mirror. It's funny because it was first time getting that kind of mirror- I mean with the price that I paid, with the hype that I've heard, it's just so funny getting a mirror like this :P

As for the second layer of it, it was the place where the foundation is stored. It was sealed by a plastic cover on top of the sponge where the foundation is stored. Once you press the sponge, the foundation will come out.

Claims & Reality: 
1. Claims : It is said to provide you with flawless coverage- high and natural coverage. 
    Reality : I must say it's true. I have acne pigmentation and it helps to cover it up. To get better                         coverage, I usually do two layers on the affected areas only.
2. Claims: Moisturizing Texture - great adherence for lasting coverage and easy touch ups without
                causing cakeyness. 
    Reality : Yes, it's moisturizing. Does it long lasting? Well, it depends. From my experience, if I am
                 exposed to high humidity, sweating, I think you need to touch up. It does looks cakey, in
                 my case on the chin area -but maybe this is just my skin problem. 
3. Claims: Smooth application - glides smoothly with 45% water-based formula
    Reality: Yes, it gives you smooth application and glides smoothly despite of my skin condition. 

The only verdict I have for this product is the shade range. There are only 3 colour to choose which is 21 Light Beige, 22 Pink Beige and 23 Natural Beige. I think they should be aware that Asian have wide skin tones range and 23 Natural Beige can cater for 'sawo matang' like me which is slightly tanned than usual.

Final thoughts: 
All in all, I think this is one of the products that I think I would repurchase, because why not? It's easy, compact and have good coverage for acne prone skin like me. It's very convenient to bring it everywhere and took shorter time to set it. It would be nice if they add more shades and sell the refill because I dont think they have one yet? (sorry if I'm wrong)
