Cushion Makeup♥*

Cushion foundations are the next biggest thing right now within the beauty community. The first big name I can remember bringing out a cushion foundation was L'Oreal, now every brand are bringing them out, including Lancôme. As well as their foundation, they have also introduced a cushion blush - and this was the first cushion blush I have seen. Fair to say I jumped right in to give it a bash.



Teint Idole Ultra Cushion* - first of all, can we please appreciate how beautiful and elegant the packaging is?! I adore it. I was glad to see you do get a makeup puff with the product, obviously because it's the cushion style. When you lift the compact, you discover the foundation section. I have the shade 015, which is ever so slightly too dark for me, but regardless, the coverage is flawless and the finish is beautiful. It does give quite a high coverage but I reckon that it would be buildable. Although it has quite high coverage, it doesn't look cakey in any way, the only way to describe it has to be airbrushed.


Cushion Blush Subtil* - The concept of a cushion blush had me intrigued. I was afraid in case I would use too much, but after I got the hang of it, I knew what I was doing. As you can see, shade 02 is a beautiful, rosy yet natural blush and it will look beautiful in the colder upcoming months. It blends out like a dream - I apply a small amount with the makeup puff provided then use a damp beauty sponge. I would even say that it would be a good base for under a powder blush. As with the foundation, both require very little product as they are very pigmented.

Although I had never tried cushion makeup products before, my first experience has been interesting yet I must admit, I do really like the products. I do feel I have more confidence using a cushion foundation as opposed to a cushion blush, but if you wear blush on a daily basis, I highly recommend this one as it is easy to get to grips with!

Have you tried any cushion makeup products? What are your opinions on them?

  1. the cushion blush looks gorgeous, I think I would struggle at first too with getting the application right, but I love how light and fresh they can make your makeup look!

  2. Really love to try this - I do find the cushion foundations don't last very long which is the only down side.

  8. The packaging is definitely elegant, blusher is one thing i can't go without, I've used the body shop one for ages - i always get worried switching blusher because I love mine, but this one looks good and quite pinky as well which is just what I like

  10. Hi Jasmine,
    Such lovely products. I don't normally shop the higher end brands (once in a while treat!) but these look great.
    I wonder if the more high street brands will do something similar?!
