[Review] Lalavesi Akma Cushion
Finally I received my Lalavesi Akma Cushion from Korea! 5555~ (T.T) It took forever as I placed my order on Dec 9, 2015 and received my package today (Jan 14, 2016). It was done through a seller I found on Facebook, and the order was delayed because of Black Friday event 😦 In addition, their supplier in Korea had difficulties collecting the Pink Ice Cute Edition for me.
Anyways, this post will be based on my first impression of the cushion as I’ve not tested on my face. I can’t wait to blog as I’ve anticipated the Lalavesi cushion for a very LONGGGG time!! It was an impulse purchase and I’m super duper excited to receive my package !!!!! Weeeeeeeee~
Jeng jeng jeng~~~ They are actually empty cases without the cushion. I thought it came with the cushion and I got extra refills from my purchase. Unfortunately NOPE! After checking my order sheet, I wasn’t over billed by the seller. They purchased the case and refill separately for me.
First impression: Very dry and matte.
Prolly should have got the F.W (for winter) season as my skin type is dry. It was an impulse purchase after watching Beauty Bible on KBS World and I did not do my research prior to buying.
The S.S (Summer Special) Classic which I’ve bought has “French Volcanic Ash” ingredients for oil control; S.S Natural has “USA Lime extract”.
The S.F (Spring Fall) Classic has “Italian yogurt”; S.F Natural has “Italian yogurt” and “USA lime extract”.
The F.W (For Winter) Classic has “Organic Honey and Diamond Powder”; can’t find F.W natural and I don’t think they have it. Here’s the link to their official website: http://en.lalavesi.com/Product/Category/list/cid/100
Super Duper DRY !!! 😦
The special summer (S.S) Classic range with French Volcanic Ash ingredient (oil control) is NOT suitable for me. This foundation doesn’t last long and makeup looks blotchy in about 2 hours after application. That is when my T-zone turns oily and the Y2 shade is too “white”.
Coverage for Redness is 100%, medium coverage for dark acne scars.
Definitely can’t be used indoors if you work in an air conditioned office. Too cakey.
