SULWHASOO EVENTFAIR PERFECTING CUSHION (SHADE 23) REVIEW

Since I started to get interested in Korean beauty products I have been wanting to try the worshipped Sulwhasoo Eventfair Perfecting Cushion. Eventually, I finally had the chance to buy one when I was over in New York, so I could get a perfect shade match.

Then my addiction for Sulwashoo continued and when the limited edition of this cushion (pictured) came out I had to buy it, just because it was so beautiful

Packaging

The packaging is very classy and sturdy. Most of cushions have a similar packaging, but I would say this is slightly flatter. The air puff it comes with is very bouncy and it allows you to blend the product into your skin perfectly. Additionally, the sponge releases the right amount of product, I just press the puff twice to do a full face and this is enough, even for building coverage.

The product I have purchased comes with a refill and a spare air puff.

Ingredients

You can see the full breakdown of the ingredients at the COSDNA link here : Ingredients Analysis

Several ingredients are flagged, in particular: Zinc Oxide, Butylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Squalane (Acne score 1). Stearic Acid, Gingelly Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil (Acne score 2). Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Palmitate (Acne score 4 / Irritant 1)

This product also contains fragrance which can cause skin irritation for those who have sensitive skin. I personally have sensitive skin, and this product did not break me out. It has quite a herbal scent to it.

Texture

The product is very easy to apply, as I have mentioned, pressing the puff twice into the sponge, allows me to do a full face and build coverage. The coverage this cushion gives you is medium to potentially high. The cushion did not cake on me upon adding coverage. Even with added coverage it provides a very natural finish, which I really like

Product Claims

These are the claims as listed on Sulwhasoo site:

  1. Apricot Kernel Oil works to promote collagen formation in the skin – improving skin elasticity and resilience for powerful anti-wrinkle benefits.
  2. Jaumdan™ Water and antioxidants deliver optimal hydration and lifting effects.
  3. The unique Flexible Film-Fixing Polymer offers a thin protective barrier for a flawless finish for 12 hours.
  4. SPF 50+ PA+++ protects the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays that cause photo-aging.
  1. True/False I agree my skin feels moisturized when you have the cushion on, although I cannot judge on the ant wrinkle benefits, since I am not particularly affected by wrinkles
  2. True That is definitely true, my skin feels very hydrated whilst I wear the cushion and even after taking it off
  3. True Definitely, I wore this cushion for a good part of the day, and it did not patch on me, nor smudged. I had a cold and despite sneezing a lot, some still remained around my nose
  4. True I wore it on a very sunny day and it definitely protected me from the sun

Results

I am in love with this cushion, it is my favourite cushion so for, and I am yet to find a valid substitute. The cushion stayed on my face for the whole amount I was wearing it, it did not patch and it did not fade. It gave me a very good coverage, despite the sweat and heat, and it did not wear off

I will definitely repurchase once finished, though I still have many refills to go through!
