REVIEW : Laneige's BB Cushion (Pore Control)

This review is sponsored. The product were give to me for free but ALL OPINIONS are my own! 

Hey! Today I'm reviewing Laneige's BB Cushion (Pore Control) in 23 Sand Beige. The product is given for me from Ibuybeauti.com for review purposes. Ibuybeauti.com is a Korean cosmetic retail site, they ship worldwide and they're based in Korea, 100% trustable! The packaged arrived to my doorstep around 2 weeks after they said they have shipped my orders. 

The service is great and personally their site is too easy for makeup browsing since they have these tags that can cater you to your beauty needs and match you with a matching product for you. For example, you can just check "Oily", "Acne/Pimples", "Matte Finish" and TADAH products that are in those category will shows up and you can just browse! 

Honestly, it's the first time I encounter a site that actually caters and care about your beauty problems. Hats off! Head over to the site so you can see what I'm talking about. After reading this review of course! :*

Like most of other cushion products, the design isn't really different or unique, by now I'm sure you have been accustomed to a lot of cushion products since every brands seems to have their own! Right now I probably have around 5 cushion products from various brands lying around! 

Recently, not a lot of cushion product came with the actual refill for them. It's nice to see that Laneige still keep the "buy one get one refill" rule. It does take a while to finish a whole cushion, but it's always nice to have a backup! 

The product itself came in 4 different shades and #23 Sand Beige being the darkest one. Laneige itself has several cushion products on their collection, so if you're getting one, make sure it's the blue one! 

Favorite activity - so satisfying! 

If you've been around, I'm always go for #23 or the darkest color for face product in Korean brandm and now you can see #23 is the exact match for my skin. LIKE super MATCH, because you can hardly see the difference between the left and right side, right? I can say comparing to other products, Laneige's BB Cushion Pore Control #23 is a level darker than other #23 shade cushion. Here's a shade swatch comparison to my other cushion products :

Some people asked me in my various post, that if they're MAC NC30, will it match #23 shade? I say for other brands #23 might be too light for people with MAC NC30 above. But, this product probably your safest bet to get if you can't try them for real. As the shade is not only a shade darker than other general #23, it isn't pink or yellow, it's neutral. I just realized on the site, Laneige actually recommends for people that uses #23 on other brand, should purchase #21 in their product. 

The difference between the swatches look so far stretches, but once it sets and oxidises the other 3 products is slightly darker than in the swatch. So, still matches my skin! :) I'm MAC NC 25-30 btw. 

For the finish, it may look super matte on the swatch, but in real life it does keep a slight sheen to make your skin look more natural, so it doesn't look anywhere cakey. The coverage goes from medium to buildable. 

This product does have a photoshop-pore-blurring-effect when applied, crazy surprised when I see my skin is definitely a lot more smoother after application. Oil control is super great, I never need my primer when using this (another shocker here.). 

Although it's stated "Pore Control" - it definitely doesn't mean only for people with large pores. Upon using I see that this product is great for people with oily / oily combination skin. If you have large pores issue as well, than it's a 1+1 solution for ya! 

In general, cushion products are great for on the go, they're less hassle and great for touch ups! Since I'm moving back to Indonesia, the humidity and hotness of this tropical country isn't a big problem for my makeup to stay on. All thanks to this product! Plus, the high SPF is definitely helping for staying in this 365-days-of-summer country! 

I probably sound not as exciting, but here I go, this product is my cushion HOLY GRAIL. There. I said it. 

Starting from the total match shade with my skin, to great coverage and lasting power, no primer for me, I can sell my soul for this cushion. This is my everyday wear and never once I found a bad point to deduct from this product. 

Everything that it claims to do is pretty much all done. Pore Control? Check. Semi-Matt Finish? Check. Long lasting? Check. UV Protection? Check. Cooling Sensation? Check. Pore Coverage? Check! Can't get anything wrong. 

This cushion have thrown my Innisfree's Long Wear Cushion from the HG throne, mainly because 1. this doesn't get cakey even when layered. 2. Better lasting power and oil control. I do still like my Innisfree's Long Wear Cushion, but it has moved to the second place in my heart. 

I am forever in debt to ibuybeauti for letting me trying this product. Unless I would probably not purchasing this on my own until forever. Don't forget to visit their site! 

Thank you so much for reading this post! I promise I'll find you guys again soon :* Questions? Down Below! Don't forget too I'm hosting a giveaway HERE

  1. wow, it seems like the perfect BB cream! Laneige tends to be pricey, but I guess their quality is worth the price


  2. the effect is amazing! super smooth and nice skin :) the tone is perfect. i love the look of the product also~

  3. I have never tried any cushions yet and I was thinking about getting this one as my first one. You totally convinced me that I should ^^

  4. I'm currently using the Laneige cushion as well, and before that I used Innisfree's Long Wear Cushion. Innisfree was also my HG cushion until I found the Laneige!! Laneige is definitely more moisturizing and doesn't cake like the Innisfree one. It's my HG cushion too~ <3

  5. This I want to try. I've seen so many different cushions flooded onto the market and most of them aren't living up to their expectations. The before wear and after shots are absolutely fantastic. I love the pore blur as I'm a gal with rather large pores myself. Any makeup that can reduce the look of those is top notch in my book.

    Thanks for sharing this review! I am really considering trying this product now.


  6. wow thx for making this
    review, Filia! I have been really curious about all this rave on cushion
    products, but not too sure to jump on the wagon, yet. But I have been stood by
    Laneige products for too long, so finding out that their cushion is a great
    deal have given me an easy option, so thanks again!

  7. Glad you love this too! I've got mine in shade 13 which is a tiny bit light but I love it. I love how the oil control is and I personally like to use a brush to apply mine as I find it sits better on my skin. I don't know why I took so long to try this but it's fantastic!

  8. I totally agree on this being a HG cushion!! It's definitely the best one I've tried so far and nothing comes close. The oil control is really amazing :)

  9. I thought innisfree long wear would be the best cushion for our not so lovely weather! lol.

    does the coverage really that good? because so far I find IOPE cushion (coverage version) is having the best coverage among all cushion. innisfree is like covering nothing to me xD

    anyway am planning to order this because of your review! haha.
    hope no 21 isn't too light for me :/ since innisfree one is way too light > <

  10. Innisfree is good, Laneige is better! :D Pengaruh harga kali ya tapi I'm positive that Laneige's finish is much better :> super less cakey! :D

  11. Halo..kalo foto pake flash, whitecast nggak?
