A’Pieu is one of my favorite Korean beauty brands for the same reason that I like Missha too. Both brands are under the same umbrella and products are equally just as awesome as they are on trend. Furthermore, both brands are constantly innovating and having capsule collections featuring characters that you and I are familiar with.
Before this Doraemon edition, A’Pieu also had one of Garfield the cat! Unfortunately, my fingers weren’t fast enough and I didn’t snag the Garfield one. But I managed to get hold of this Doraemon edition and I am here to give you my review of it! 🙂
Read on to find out what i think about it!
But first, the bit from the brand:

Well, besides the utterly adorable and iconic design, I am honestly surprised by the quality of the cushion. But again, I am not that surprised because like I mentioned earlier, it is afterall developed by Able C&C, the big boy behind brands like Missha, Mika and SwissPure.
Now, Air-Fit Cushion belongs to the basic tier of A’Pieu and this Doraemon edition is basically just a change in the casing of the cushion. Having said that, I feel that this cushion does everything I needed and more. When I say “needed”, this cushion essentially helps conceal the little blemish marks and redness on my face, and it wears for a very long time! I’ve checked, on a good day when I am mostly staying indoor, the cushion could wear on for about 10hrs! Although I needed to blot with a tissue from time to time, the coverage/BB liquid still remained albeit having tiny cracking around my nose area towards the 7/8th hour mark. For the “more” part, this cushion gave me a slight dewiness and glow without being too much (i.e. W.Lab W-Honey Beam Cushion).
As a matter of fact, I liked this cushion (as with the Missha M Magic Cushion Moisture) so much that I consider it as my go-to cushion which I can use on a daily basis when I am not test driving other brand’s cushion and/or base makeup.
PS. My skin is Normal-Combination type with the usual shine on my T-zone. I am using shade no.21 for both A’Pieu and Missha.
|Will i recommend it?||:||Yes, it is now my go-to daily cushion when I am not test driving other base products!|

Does this cause you any breakouts? I wanted to buy the cushion but I’m afraid that I’ll be having breakouts since (I think) I’m still kinda young. Thank you for reviewing the product most of all!

No, this one wouldn’t cause any breakouts. At least not for me. However, at the end of the day, a thorough thorough thorough makeup removal is required to ensure color makeup doesn’t clog your pores. ☺️
Thank you so much for this review!! I’ve heard so many conflicting things about this, maybe because it works differently on different skin types, but you gave me a lot more details to work with! Thank you!!

hi! Sorry I didn’t responded in time. Sorry sorry! Anyway, how’d you find the cushion? Did you eventually went ahead and got yourself one? I would love to hear your thoughts on it too 🙂
Hi! My skin tone is kind like NC20 MAC. And now I use Etude cotton fit N02. It’s not too white for me, but it’s too pinkish because basically I have yellowish skin tone. And it’s look different between face and my hand. Do you think a’pieu shade 21 will be suitable for me? Thank you 🙂
Hello Theresia! 🙂
In my opinion, the shade from A’pieu is a little warmer/yellow-based and thus, would be quite suitable if you’re a M.A.C NC20. I am a NC15-20 myself and No.21 is quite decently although No.13 is a better match for me.
