I was really excited to use the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion Foundation SPF 50+ PA+++ when I got it and I have used this foundation in most of my outings since I got it about 10 days ago. Today I am going to review it for you guys so keep reading to find out how it performed!
About The Looks!
The packaging is simple and classy. The product comes in an off white box which has the name of the brand the product printed on the front and the back has the price, quantity, shelf life, ingredients and all the other information. The foundation comes in a round pot with a flip open cap and the cap has a mirror on the underside. The foundation comes with a cushion placed inside. When you remove the cushion there is a lid which covers the product. On opening the lid, you would see a sponge soaked with the product. The packaging is compact and travel friendly. Its simple and classy. I like it! The mirror provided is of great quality. Another great thing about the brand is that they are really eco-friendly! Not just in terms of the product but also the packaging. All the pots, tubs, tubes etc are recyclable and the box that the product comes packed is made of recycled paper and is printed with organic soy ink! Isn’t that amazing!! 😀

My views and experience with the Cushion Foundation!
I have used the foundation in two ways to see which method works best. While writing this I just got another method in my mind and I will try that as well and update you on my social media! Anyways, The first time I used it was with the cushion provided. I pressed the cushion on to the sponge soaked in the product and then dabbed it on my face where I wanted to apply the foundation. Then using the same cushion I blended it out. I noticed that it was very difficult to blend out the product using just the cushion. It settles in the fine lines and is unforgiving if you don’t work fast.
The cushion is good to dab on the product but its not meant for blending, so the next time I decided to use a foundation brush to blend it out. The second time I used it, I dabbed the foundation on the face using the cushion provided and immediately blended it out using the Sigma 3D Kabuki Brush. And this method worked amazingly well!! The foundation was looking flawless, blended out nicely and was looking way natural than the last time!
This shade is slightly lighter for my skin tone. But I contour and bronze my face in such situations. The foundation is like a damp mineral powder and is neither liquid nor dry. However, it is obviously drier than the other liquid foundation I have ever used.
The coverage is medium and if you have a non problematic skin then it will work as full coverage for you. If you have some dark spots, this product can cover it up to a good level. The foundation can be built up and can give you high coverage and will not look cakey only if blended out properly.
I lasts all day and doesn’t move at all!! No creasing or fading and keeps my face matte all day long! It did not cause any skin irritation nor did it break out on me. It hasn’t oxidized on me yet. I love the fact that it gives super awesome sun protection! SPF 50+ and PA+++ is huge! The protection can last up to 5 hours!! I love this fact a lot! I won’t need a sunscreen if I am using this, as this itself is a sunscreen!! 😀
Innisfree has come up with some awesome Diwali offers, how can I stop myself from shopping if they have offers like such!! If you are interested in the same go to the stores and get some cool stuff now!!

Overall, I like this foundation. It gives a lovely matte finish and great coverage. Lasts all day without creasing. I would use this foundation on days when I have plenty of time because of the blending it requires. It is difficult to blend and even more with just the cushion, so a foundation brush would be required. Love the awesome sun protection it provides and so acting as a foundation cum sunscreen!! I would certainly recommend this product to everyone.
