Air

I admit, sometimes I buy Korean cosmetics blindly because of the cute packaging. Hey hey hey, don’t judge me…I know you bởi vì the same thing. Couple weeks back, Ryan Roar posted up a blog post about A’pieu’s new limited edition BB cushion which they collaborated with Garfield. Now, I was a 90’s kid that grew up reading Garfield comics since back then there wasn’t internet & these futuristic stuff called the internet. Garfield và Archie comics kept this crazy monkey kid, that was always hyper active & super talkative lớn just sit down và be absolutely silent for hours at a time. So of course I had lớn get this, purely for the packaging but it was a BB cushion so that was a bonus. At first when I went to search for it online lớn buy, no big korean cosmetics stores online was carrying it và only three ebay sellers had it but it was $10 starting bid. I was bidding on it since it was still not half bad at $10, but I ended up losing the auction so I just settled & got the regular A’pieu BB cushion. It was only $6 with không tính tiền shopping so I was like meh, why not.

Product packaging:The a’pieu Air fit BB cushion comes in standard BB cushion packaging, a circle compact that is slightly bulky for my taste but it is understandable, a removeable BB cushion case that has a lid lớn keep the moisture in and germs out, a nice sized mirror and of course the air puff. When you first get your BB cushion, the mirror is covered with plastic which I thought was a nice touch & attention khổng lồ detail. I’m just OCD lượt thích that haha.

Excuse the dust :P. I found A’pieu’s air puff lớn me a lot less stiff then what I am use to. I usually use the Etude House ones which is a lot more memory foam like and the air bubbles are a lot finer then A’pieu. A’pieu’s air puff is more spongy, air bubbles are slightly larger then the Etude house one. I lượt thích the Etude House one since the texture and the fineness of the air bubbles absorbs a lot less product, making the product actually just sit on the đứng top of the sponge, while A’pieu’s would soak a bit more product. Many they are doing this on purpose so that consumers would buy more of this product. Sneaky sneaky…

Lucky for us, this BB cushion, you can pop out. This means we can just buy the refill for cheaper :D. Not that this BB cushion isn’t cheap already, but I want lớn keep the Garfield packaging! Luckily for me, the Garfield limited edition packaging is not a sticker but the design is actually printed onto the plastic lid. I’m impressed considering this is such an affordable BB cushion!
*
 Of course I’d have lớn see if the refill can fit into an Etude House BB cushion compact. 
*
Oh poo… you can fit the A’pieu refill into Etude house’s compact since the A’pieu refill is a bit smaller then Etude House’s. However A’pieu’s refill in Etude House does not sit securely & if you were to hold it, it could pop out. Etude House’s refill does not fit into A’pieu’s compact whatsoever since it is just too big.

Color/ Pigmentation:

At first when I purchased the regular packaged one, I got it in shade 21 since I am very far, even during the summer time since I don’t lượt thích to sun bath so I’m still a vampire during the summer time. I hardly chảy but my skin vì chưng get a little bit darker. I didn’t think I would need khổng lồ get shade 23, but when the garfield one was available I say heck to lớn it! Just get the other shade & also try it out, for science!

For reference:-skin type: normal to lớn dry skin, slightly flaky skin on nose & around laugh lines và corner of mouth-MAC màu sắc reference: NC20-25 (yellow undertone, vampire pale)

*
The shades in the cushion looks crazy, especially shade 23 looks lượt thích it was made for an oompa loompa. 

*
Out of the cushion & into actual skin, they don’t look that crazy. Shade 23, surprisingly, actually matched my skin better then shade 21 which I thought would be the one since I’m pale pale pale. Shade 21 has a slightly more pink undertone but I would say it is quite neutral, so even people with yellow undertone can wear this. I can’t wear shade 21 right now since I’m on the slightly tanner shade, not that much tanner but enough wear I can’t wear this pale shade right now. I am hoping that I can wear this shade during the winter time, but I highly doubt it. If I can’t, I can always use it khổng lồ contour as a highlighter. No worries! Shade 23 is a yellow undertone shade that works for my NC25, it is a definite match. If you were NC30 or above, I bởi vì not believe you can use this BB cushion, it won’t work for your skintone.
*

Blended out, shade 23 looks a lot darker and looks lượt thích there is a very slight hint of a gray undertone. Shade 21 is very pale and the pink undertone neutrals out with my yellow undertone. Applied with the air puff, the greyish does not appear with both shades & it also does not make me look like my face is peeling off my body. I always have a problem, after applying a BB cream (cushion or regular BB cream), I finish my ảo diệu all the way down to lớn blush and highlight, then look at the mirror và OMGAWWWWW. Up close when I’m using my lighted mirror, everything looks fine but then BAM, looks at my full body toàn thân mirror và I look lượt thích the ghost of Christmas past. At that point, i go into denial because I spent the past hour taking my sweet time, doing my full face make up. I tell myself “no one will notice when I step outside into the human world, just blend it out down to the neck”, but in the back of my head I know I still look lượt thích I came from the demon world with my face looking lượt thích it is floating in mid air above my neck.

Finish:Koreans love that watery, dewy finish which that trend is on it’s way out. In comes the “blur” trend which focuses on the real life Instagram filter. Although this sản phẩm was not marketed as a “blurring” BB cushion, the A’pieu Air fit does just that. The finish is a slightly dewy, more on the satin finish while giving the skin that “i woke up lượt thích this” bull sheep. Oh Beyonce, how you have infiltrated the human mind with your catchy songs. This sản phẩm works great for those who have dry skin since it is very moisturizing. You’d have to make sure you vày not have any dead, flaky skin on your face. The first time I tried it, I forgot to lớn exfoliate the day before & the BB cream was slightly catching and accentuating the dry patches of skin. I can also see this working for oily skin people but I’d say powder a little bit for that extra insurance.

Smell:On a scale of one to ten, this BB cushion would be a 6 with its soapy, floral scent. It is not strong enough for me to lớn not want lớn use it or have a headache.

Lasting powder:This BB cushion on my skin type, living in Vancouver with rainy weather 9 months out of 12, wore a good 9 hours with slight fading around my nose naturally since I wear glasses. To my surprise, this BB cushion wore better then my Etude House any cushion moist. I’m scared lớn say this, but I might like this cushion more then my beloved Etude House one :S.

Onto the facial test. As you can see, I bởi vì not have perfect skin. I have my fair tóm tắt of problems.

*
I have quite dark circles due lớn lack of sleep or sleeping late, slightly redness around the cheeks, nose & chin due lớn hormones, blackheads that reproduces over night and chapped lips.
*
Let’s get started~

*
A closer look at my skin. My nose is nuts with blackheads dang it! It will never go away too. Sigh… If anyone has some trang chủ remedies that I can try, please comment down below.

Before (right) and after (left side). I should really flip these picture so the before & after actually makes sense.

*
With low expectations of this product, I was blew away with the finish and coverage this BB cushion gave me. With just one layer, my redness was covered nicely, gave me a slight glow lớn the skin without making it look lượt thích I put lip gloss all over my face and was moisturizing to my dry skin. Under the eyes, it worked well! Good enough coverage, not drying & doesn’t settled in my fine lines và wrinkles under there. I’m highly impressed.

*
Side view of the other side with no BB cream. There’s definitely a big difference, my skin looks a lot more even.
*
Both sides with the BB cream. Ahhh much better, nice và even. Not cakey, nice and moisturized.

*
Finished! I purposely don’t put concealer on my under eye to see if the BB cream gives me good coverage. I’d use my own under eye concealer as the BB cushion didn’t brighten up the under eye area. Overall, I’m very happy with the finished results.

Pros:-affordable retail price-good coverage, light lớn medium–moisturizing without making you look lượt thích a grease ball-nice finish to the skin, looks lượt thích you aren’t wearing any make up!-high SPF-no gray undertone after application

Cons:-Not easily accessible lớn those that vày not live in Asia; buy online-will cling lớn dry patches so make sure to exfoliate prior-only two shades available-air puff is not the best unique but passable

Repurchase? YES! A big fat YES!
