It all began in the summer when I tried this just for fun. At that point, I didn’t even use make up on the regular, except for brow product and tinted lip balm. I didn’t exactly need it either because my skin’s been good: Barely any blemishes to speak of and nothing else to cover up. And, like I said, it was summer and sweltering hot, and I especially hate wearing make up then.
Yet despite all that I was hooked right away and started wearing it on the daily! That’s how much I loved it and simply enjoyed using it.
In the summer, I applied this with a damp Beauty Blender. Now in the winter, I use a stippling brush. Basically, I use anything but the applicator the cushion comes with. It doesn’t matter what you use, though. Application is a breeze. The product melts into your skin like a dream, and it blends out like a dream…
Coverage is light, but buildable to medium. I personally leave it at light because that’s all I need.
Hands down, the cushion has an absolutely beautiful natural finish. It looks super skin-like, just better. Not matte, not overly dewy. Just gorgeous!
And it’s moisturizing just so. Not a lot. But definitely not drying. Just so it’s perfectly comfortable to wear.
And, oh, comfortable to wear it is! Honestly, you’ll barely feel it. In fact, you won’t feel it on your skin at all! Not in the summer heat, not in the winter cold. I actually apply this and forget about it completely for the remainder of the day. The SPF is a plus!
If I had to pick a minus, it’d be the applicator sponge. Nothing truly wrong with it, though, I just don’t like it.
I actually stopped wearing it for a while in the autumn, I think because I got lazy? Not sure. But I picked it up again lately, and I can assure you I’m still hooked!
I thought this year my skin was going back and forth between flawless and radiant, and tired and dull. At one point I truly thought, “That’s it, my face is done for!” But I think my skin was always fine, only the products I used made it look really “ugh” in the daylight. And with that I mean the Paula’s Choice TM – grrrr. Now that I use the cushion again, however, my skin is back looking its best!
