On to the second post in my series on cushion foundations (if you missed my first post on the Iope Air Cushion foundation, here it is) and it’s another great foundation that provides decent coverage alongside a whole host of other benefits – I can’t wait until the UK cushion foundations cotton on to the fact that a cushion foundation needs to be a little more than just a run-of-the-mill foundation squirted into a cushion and plonked in a compact!
The Scinic 7in1 Mist Cushion Foundation is all about the hydration, so it leaves skin looking quite wet, however, this is easily sorted with a bit of powder – it’s moisturised wet rather than greasy wet. The product itself is very similar in presentation to the Iope cushion foundation, as it’s presented in a silver, mirrored compact with a little insert where the sponge sits above the foundation-soaked cushion itself. Out of the three cushion foundations I was sent, this is the only one that didn’t come with an additional cushion to replace the one within the compact when it runs out.
This is another product with an extremely high SPF of 50 which works alongside other skincare goodies such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and pearl. It appears to only be available in one shade which is a shame, especially as that shade is an unbelievably good match for my very pale skin tone.
This applies easily withe included sponge, but I personally prefer to apply it with a brush as I always prefer brush application. It gives a very decent, buildable coverage that’s especially effective on redness as you can hopefully see in the pictures. I’ve included an image of my full make-up look too so you can see how it looks once powdered down.
I’m absolutely loving these cushion foundations as they provide so many different make-up and skincare benefits, but as I said at the start of this post, the UK versions have a long way to go before providing similarly impressive results. This one is £23 here – link – and I’ll be posting my final cushion foundation review soon before launching a competition to give you a chance to win whichever is your favourite, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
