Review: Skinfood Royal Honey Cover Bounce Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ (Snoopy limited edition)

It was just last November that I reported about the release of the Skinfood x Snoopy limited collaboration over on my Instagram. It wasn’t until my recent trip to Seoul in February that I managed to snag a box of the cushion after searching high and low for it in multiple stores. Given that this Snoopy line was released back in November and many stores running out of it when I visited, I was genuinely surprised when I stumbled into the flagship store over at Sinsa-dong and they still had plenty of stocks remaining!

Well, after trying it for one week now, I am ready to tell you all about it in this review proper today. Read on to find out all about it!

First, a little info-visual from the brand:

Personal take : I had pretty high hopes for this Royal Honey Cover Bounce Cushion to be honest. After reading several online reviews about this cushion, I purchased it thinking it’d be a cushion with sufficient coverage and moisture which you can sort of feel on the skin.

For the moisture part, yeah, you can actually feel the moisture on your face because, well, the skin is definitely not dry nor tight while wearing this cushion throughout the day. Honey/Royal Jelly extract does have this moisturizing ability when they are used in beauty products. However, it is the coverage part that I am a little…baffled with. You see, when I was at the store testing this cushion on the back of my hand, it feels right, the coverage was noticeable. But when I used it back in Singapore, the coverage was just…lacking. Even after two layers of it, I can still see the little imperfections I have staring back at me. In its defence, maybe the two pimples of mine were toooooooooooo glaringly red? Whatever it is, I have other cushions that can suppress the redness easily and effortlessly (I feel).

The saving grace for this cushion is its ability to impart a subtle glow, your skin but better, second skin effect. While its certainly moisturizing, it can also spell trouble for combination/oilier skin users as that it oxidizes slightly faster. This cushion oxidized on me after aprox. 5~6 hours of wearing, and started becoming patchy towards the end of the day even when I have not done any touch-ups earlier.

In conclusion, I like the glow. I would wear this again for that soft, subtle glow. But I would not wear this on my bad skin day.

Will i recommend it? : No, I know there are better cushions out there that can conceal better AND comes with a glowy finish to boot
