BB Cushion Evolution - Review of New LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control and Whitening

 Review of New LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control and Whitening


Sorry lovelies for the lack of updates on the blog lately! I have just officially moved into my first matrimonial home! And the past two months were a mad craze of overseeing my interior designers, contractors, getting furniture & furnishings, shifting from two homes to one, cleaning/packing/unpacking and now, trying to organise a housewarming party as well as plan an overseas trip. (Gosh!)

Now that I am finally more available to blog, I have decided to review the newly packaged and improved formula of the  Laneige BB Cushion (both Pore Control and Whitening) that I have used for more than a month.

Don't you find this pretty & very elegant holographic design cover exceptionally alluring? This new packaging is also much more slicker and easier to carry around for touch-ups. 

Note: Your old BB cushion refills won't fit this new one.

LANEIGE, being the pioneer of BB Cushion, is also one of the rare brands that offers a wide range of shades. There are 10 shades in this new line of BB cushion, and you can pick according to your skin tone (neutral or cool) too! Read more on their Singapore website HERE.

The main obvious difference of this new packaging is in the cushion itself. Laneige introduces its exclusive 3D Skin Fit Cushion which delivers a new and differentiated experience! This embossed cushion is strong, dense & elastic; and allows product to be picked up evenly on your puff, thereafter distributed better when it touches the skin. Moreover, the BB liquid will not flow over the edge of the puff even when it is presses, keeping the compact clean & sanitary.

In photos, the finish don't show up with much difference. However, in real life, the Pore Control version is semi-matte and suits combination/oily skin types; whereas the Whitening version feels a tad more dewy and looks more moist hence it suits dry/normal skin. Being a whitening product, I'd expect it to look pale on the skin but nope, thankfully, this did not - the finish is soft, natural & beautiful.

Above pics were taken with no other makeup. It might be a lighting issue here that the top photo of my face looks brighter. In person, the two didn't look too different.

MY THOUGHTS

Comparatively to the older version of Laneige BB Cushion, this range had indeed revolutionised and evolved into a much better product. I love how natural both the Pore Control and the Whitening look on the skin. Unlike their predecessors which shades wore down to a greyish/pinkish cast and could feel streaky at the end of the day, these new ones did not have such issues. Shades blend totally into the skin, and the good news is, Laneige widens their shade variety to cater to the South East Asian market; therefore, EVERYONE will be able to find a shade match!

This new improved version also holds more longevity than the older version. It last me a good 6 hours with no need for touchups, amidst the humid climate I live in! Most importantly, they did not clog my pores unlike some other cushion products.

As for coverage, both are excellent and the finish is comfortable, natural and super long-lasting!

    3. Hi Joanna,

      Older version(1st generation) won't fit. But the newer version will fit the Chouette casing.

  3. BB Cushion is my fav! I am currently using HERA but considering trying out Laneige (unable to resist their Lucky chouette collection). Between pore control and whitening, is it me or does the lighting makes it seem like pore control gives a fairer effect?

  4. I've read a few reviews that shade 21 for their new 2016 BB cushions are a bit lighter than their previous bb cushions. My BB cushions running out soon and I'm not sure if I should stick with 21 or switch to 23. Will be purchasing them online. That's the problem. No testers. What do you think after trying it out? Is there a big difference?

    1. Hi Dina,
      I don't see a visible difference between the old and new - at least not for Shade #21.
