[THE FACE SHOP x My Other Bag] Oil Control Water Cushion (Zoey Bag): Review

7:03:00 PM Mei B 12 Comments






Recently, The Face Shop Collaborated with My Other Bag, an LA based brand that makes premium canvas tote bags with the design of a  'signature' in the form of a hand-printed illustration, to produce 3 different adorable CC cushions:






I 'm not really a fan of dewy finish and I already have plenty of moisturising cushions, I'm not interested in cushions with high coverage either but I had to find an excuse to spend more money (I don't have) to get my hands on one of these lovely cushions (and preferably the oil control one since I have barely any products for oily skin and my skin tends to become really oily sometimes during summer) and when I was about to give up, I received an email from BBCosmetic where they asked me if I were interested in trying any of the products they have on their website and my first reflex was to look for THE cushion, and guess what? I found it *-*




A couple of days ago, I finally received a pink package with bbcosmetic written on it and I was reaaaaally excited to try it out but.. when I read V203 instead of V201 I was a little disappointed.. less Than I should have been (since the main reason I wanted it is the packaging and not the product inside but still, I was disappointed). But since it's me, my disappointment vanished after few minutes and started trying it out, and thankfully, it wasn't as dark as the other 23 shades I know but still it was darker (and yellower.. does this word even exist?)than my skintone but since it's a CC cream, it wasn't that bad.

So..

How to use:

- Take this on puff and spread to face through skin texture.
- Tap lightly for adhering.
- Add on the area where more covering is needed. 


Packaging:




I absolutely love this packaging ♥ It's absolutely worth taking it out of your bag to show off xD
It has goldish base with a beautiful artwork on the cover, but instead of just printing it they covered it with a hard transparent top which made it look even more adorable.





Instead of a paper box, this cushion comes in a lovely canvas drawstring bag with a design of a  Louis Vuitton Bag printed on its front, and the name of the purse with the name of its designer I suppose (not sure about it though) and a little description on the back, and that's really unique.




The puff that comes with it has the same consistency as the other ones I've tried (Missha for example) But it is much smaller you can only use 2 fingers instead of 3.





Shades: The other two cushions come in three shades (V103, V201 and V203) while this one comes in only two shades (V201 and V203)


Undertone: The one I got (V203) has a really yellow undertone (not orange, yellow), but it does a good job hiding redness and stuff (and it looks less yellow than expected).




Scent: Typical BB/CC cream scent


Finish and coverage: It has a matte finish (which u can rarely obtain with a bb/cc cushion), and it's a huge plus for me (I'm not a huge fan of dewy finish), and it has a medium coverage, but it can be built up to full coverage.




Does it cake up when you layer it or retouch it? No it doesn't, but it kinda clings to my dry patches, so make sure you don't have any before applying this cc cushion.


Lasting power: I have a dehydrated skin, and I used it alone without primer or concealer or anything, so it lasted for about 7 hours before starting to slightly disappear in some places and kinda look shiny on others (my face doesn't produce thaaaat much sebum anyways, but it did a decent job on my sister's oily skin). It doesn't really settle on my tiiiny fine line but it did on 3 or four pores xD (some huge ones), but over all it did a nice job. after 9 hours, most of it was gone (just keep in mind that I keep touching my face more than I should so..)



Oil control: Like I've mentioned before, this does a decent job controlling oil but, oil always wins in the end so... It also wasn't drying at all even though it has a matte finish, which means even those with dry skin who prefer Matte finish can use it.


Do I recommend it?
If you have a normal to oily skin (or even dry skin since it doesn't dry out the skin), like matte finish and have a yellow undertone (or you have a pink one but aren't bothered by its yellow color), then I absolutely recommend it. (I mean, it's not bad at all + it has a gorgeous packaging)


Where can you buy it?
