I sometimes sweat so much in the unbearable Singapore heat that even the strongest BB cream cannot hold up perfectly. At other times, I’m simply too lazy to apply BB cream, especially when I travel, which was why I bought a cushion compact to do my makeup on the go.
Perfect cover, smooth adherence, absolutely long-lasting!
Any Cushion All Day Perfect provides long-lasting perfect, elastic makeup.

Due to a series of unfortunate events, I matched to my hand colour and got the wrong shade (Sand). I would be better off with Beige or Petal, while Sand is a tad too dark for me. Lesson learned – match your foundation/BB cream shade to your jawline, not your hands!!
As you can see, the design also looks a bit…plasticky? It’s quite different from, say, IOPE and LANEIGE’s cushions.
I used this quite a fair bit in the past when my skin was not in its best condition, and I was not very impressed by the coverage given. It also doesn’t make your skin look particularly radiant, which is a bit disappointing because all it really does, then, is just to even out your skin colour. However, it feels much better on my skin than its BB cream counterpart though, which is a plus point.
I wore this on full working days (~ 8 to 7), and the oxidation process was painfully visible throughout. At around noon, I could already see that most of it was gone, and had to reapply again. If I decided to be lazy and not reapply, the results look even worse by the end of the day. I think it’s even worse because I stay in air-conditioned rooms the whole day, which leaves the makeup on my skin feeling really dry and cakey. I even had comments from friends asking if I hadn’t done my makeup that day…
If this product was good, I would have totally considered buying a refill of the correct shade. However, my experience with this cushion compact has been nowhere near amazing, even disappointing.
I’m not repurchasing this, and I won’t recommend this either if you’re looking for something long-lasting and with high coverage.
