[HEIMISH] Artless Perfect Cushion: Review

3:27:00 PM Mei B 6 Comments



Hello ~~

How are you guys? hope you are having a great time, and that you had a wonderful holiday so far ♥

I also wanna wish you guys a happy new year full of love, wellbeing and success. I can't believe this is the last day of 2016 already... I've tried many new brands this year (especially makeup ones), but the brand that got me absolutely hooked (as you might already know) is Heimish, thus the reason why I wanted my last review this year to be about a Heimish product: Heimish Artless perfect cushion that I have got recently from StyleKorean (along with many other heimish products, click here to read my reviews)




Description and claims:


- Seemingly effortless moistly covering cushion compact. It forms a moisture-locking membrane that gets firmer the more it is padded, leaving skin smoother.
- Naturally moist and glowing cover of a firm, sticky cushion texture with a moisture packing system full of moist glow, it naturally and smoothly covers skin blemishes.
-  Bright skin tone without darkening even if re-applied: Even if repeatedly applied several times, it gets lightly absorbed without darkening, leaving skin bright and clear all day long.
- Formula that protects skin from a harmful environment: Thyme flower, mint leaf, rosehip fruit, and other compounds form a thin moisture-locking membrane that protects skin from harmful matter like minute dust in the air.

How to use:

At the end of your skincare routine, press on the puff to soak up a desired amount of the content and apply using a tapping motion all around the face. After each use, be sure to keep the compact closed. To insert the refill, flip the product over and push the bottom out with both thumbs. Carefully align and press in the refill, enjoy.


Packaging: 10/10






You might think that I'm biased or something, but Heimish packagings are G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! They are simple yet elegant and modern, and I am absolutely sold whenever it comes to pink and rose gold.




I also love how the design on the lid is simply printed but the are some shimmery flakes in it, and the whole thing is covered with a hard transparent top, which makes it really beautiful (I failed big time showing the details with my phone's camera...)


The cushion case is kinda similar to your typical bb cushion's one, with a front release and a mirror... except for two things:

- The puff is a little thicker, denser and slightly bouncier than the typical blue air puffs, which kinda makes it absorb less product.




- since they use the mochi technique, the cushion isn't flat like the other cushions (I tried to take it in pics but failed...), so you might get some of the bb cream on the lid.



Scent: 9/10

It has a light flowery scent, nothing overpowering and fades away moments after application (but still, it might bother you if you have a super sensitive nose.


Shades: 7/10


This bb cushion comes in only two shades (21 and 23 like most of the other korean base products).
Undertone: I got it in the light beige shade (21), and it is quite neutral with a tad bit of pink to it, which a plus for me.
SPF: 50 PA+++ which means you might look like a ghost if you took pictures with flash while having this bb cushion on (or any other korean bb cushion for this matter)


Coverage: 7/10



This bb cushion has a medium coverage that can be built up. In the pics above, I have applied the product with the cushion like I would do on my face. I didn't layer it. You can see that it did a nice job covering my hand's redness, but couldn't completely cover the line I've drawn.


Finish: 8/10

This bb cushion has a satin finish (which is a plus for me since I don't like the super dewy kinda look), adheres well to the skin and is easily blendable. It doesn't conceal pores (nor emphasise them) so you might consider using a pore primer beforehand if you have huge pores. It also clings to dry patches and kinda makes them more obvious, so make sure you get rid of those before using this bb cushion (or any base makeup in my opinion)


Moisture/oil control: 8/10

I don't think that this as moisturising as they make it seem (it doesn't dry out the skin either), but it is kinda understandable since it kinda has a matte finish. So you better rely on your skincare rather than this bb cream if you have a super dry skin.
As for oil control, I think this bb cushion does a nice job for about 4 hours if you have an oily skin (not extremely so), before the skin starts becoming a little dewy, but after a couple of other hours, you might need to use a no sebum powder or blotting paper.


Lasting power: 9/10

If your skin is in a good condition, this bb cushion will probably last all day (especially if you use a primer with is). But if you have a super dry/dehydrated skin or live somewhere where the wind is blasting constantly in your face (same for the heater and the air conditioner), then this might look a quite patchy on you after 4-5 hours.


Do I recommend it?

If you have a normal to oily skin, then yes absolutely.
But if you have a dry skin, then I don't think this is the right bb cushion for you (especially during winter), unless you are taking good care of your skin (as in exfoliate it enough and moisturise it before using this bb cushion) or live in a humid region.

  2. I've never tried make-up like this before. But I've heard so many good things about cushions and the coverage that they give. I think the packaging is lovely.

  3. I have the heimish eye palette in coral. I love the little shimmer in the shades, they are beautiful. Regarding the cushion, I tried the April snow cushion, it doesn't suit my skin as I have dry cheeks.
