With every beauty brand fully on board the cushion wagon, Sulwhasoo now goes one step further with a luxurious new offering that combines skincare benefits with coverage – the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Intense!
Sulwhasoo was one of the first luxury brands to introduce the world to cushion foundations, and has been treasured by ladies in the know for years. The latest Perfecting Cushion Intense is beautifully presented in an elegant mahogany brown casing with golden trims. The accompanying puff applicator feels nice and plush on my skin, and does a good job of diffusing the product on my face.
Leveraging on Sulwhasoo’s holistic approach towards skincare, the Perfecting Cushion is formulated with Red Pine extract, which is featured in the brand’s Timetreasure range designed for mature skin. Red Pine extract contains DAA which heightens the skin’s natural resilience and rejuvenating mechanisms. The cushion also contains Plum Blossom extract which is a good source of antioxidants to prevent pre-mature aging from external aggressors. Furthermore, I like that it has SPF50+ / PA+++ to protect skin against UVA/UVB rays. For the full list of ingredients, please click here.
I’m always wary of Korean cushions for their propensity to go overboard on the dewiness, so I was relieved to find this Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Intense leaves a nice luminous glow whilst giving my dry skin a satin-matte finish. The coverage is definitely good as you can see the noticeable improvement to my dark circles. There are 7 shades to choose from, and I tried both shade 21 (used in the comparison shot above) and 23. Both would have been suitable for me – 23 would be much more closer to my neck, but I opted for 21 for a slightly brighter effect.
Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Intense is a nice option for those who need additional coverage and a bit of skin-pampering never hurts! Have you tried it yet?
