Since it is an all new product in the market, let me run though with you how this product should be used.
LET’S GET EDUCATED WITH THE LAYERING PUFF
A teardrop (or water drop) shaped dual puff, the LANEIGE Layering Cover Cushion & Concealing Base layering puff (damn long la the name…) consists of a velvet puff on the top for concealing and an air puff (also the usual puff used in Laniege BB Cushions) for layering.
The velvet puff occupies the top triangle point for concealing precision at smaller regions of the face. It also has shorter fibers to help pick up just the right amount of product and nicely buff the concealing base into curved areas and under-eyes. I find that for best coverage, use the puff to apply in a gentle upward movement.
The air puff on the other hand is perforated to maximize moisture and natural coverage from the layering cover cushion. It also has a wider coverage area for faster and more even application. This also helps to blend out your concealing base and even out skin tone. Simply apply in a gentle tapping motion and blend out with swiping motion near the hairline.
STEP ONE: PERFECT COVER – High Coverage For Imperfections Without Darkening
I usually apply my foundation first before moving on to conceal areas of the skin that needs extra help. However with Laniege Layering Cover Cushion & Concealing Base, you are supposed to apply the concealing base before the layering cover to ensure a even and illuminated skin tone. The concealer applies balmy like a dream! High coverage, matte finishing without looking cakey at all. I had to resist the urge to apply this all over my face 😛 The concealing base is formulated with an Aqua Melting Technology which helps the product to melt and blend seamlessly into the skin. It also has priming properties that control sebum secretion, oxidation and helps the product adhere to skin imperfections better.
STEP TWO: REAL COVER – Layer For A Flawless And Moisturized Finish
After concealing, it’s time to achieve that famous Laneige #SparklingBeauty look! The cover cushion layer helps brighten and illuminate the skin with the help of powerful skin-loving ingredients.
- Illuminating Jewel Powder gives the skin a bright and healthy rosy complexion with anti-darkening effect.
- Litchi Skin Extract soothe the skin and helps protect the skin from external aggressors and antioxidants.
- Water Capture System provides round-the-clock moisturization with a combination of purified water from France and Hydro-ion mineral water that releases and adds a surge of moisture to the skin with every tap.
Full matte coverage from the concealer and brightening glow effect from the layering cushion.
I find that layering step 2 sometimes shifts and removes part of the applied concealer thus I’ll sometimes go back in with a little more concealer where needed.
Habitually, I’ll dust on some translucent loose powder to set my cream base contour and the rest of my makeup. The final result is a semi-matte finish with glow from within.
One of their major selling points is sebum control and durability, so I had to put the cushion out for the test. Selecting a long day where I have to transit between 2 events and a meeting, my makeup was budge proof until the 5th hour when my T-zone got alittle oily but nothing a tissue blot can’t fix. I found myself touching up on my nose, corners of the nose and chin (my major trouble areas) at the 8th hour before my evening event as some of the blemishes was showing.
The above said, I was waiting for my Grab under the late afternoon sun. Given a full-day in the office, I am confident that the LANEIGE Layering Cover Cushion & Concealing Base would stay on and well for a evening date.
The LANEIGE Layering Cover Cushion & Concealing Base comes in 7 Shades selling at $43 each. For the month of March, you can purchase it on Lazada as a special launch promotion.
