First impression: YSL Cushion

Hi everybody, another video here^^ when in korea I managed to get my hands on the new Yves Saint Laurent “Le Cushion Encre De Peau” cushion foundation. Here’s my review and first impressions of the product.

First of all, the coverage is a strong medium and buildable, the foundation glides very naturally on the skin and I don’t feel like I have to layer this continuously to get a good coverage with this. The price is kinda a lot though (72000 won/72$) and at the time when I bought it, there was only three shades available in Korea. I’m the second shade, but I also guess that the first one would have decently fit me. The guy demo-ing the product for me went and grabbed the “30” shade and me and another employee at the YSL counter both just were shocked. The colour match was obviously off and I ended up choosing the “20” shade. 

On the plus side with buying beauty products in Korea I got samples with the purchase and I managed to get cash back at the airport through tax-free. 

The foundation goes on smoothly and the shade stays put and doesn’t oxidise noticeably at all. This is definitely one of the best, and one of my favourite, cushion foundations that I’ve ever tried. 

The best thing about cushions are how easy they are to bring along in your bag, and you don’t need to use a brush which also is great. I hope this product launches in Europe soon. Just in case I need to buy a refill. 

Here’s my demo video below, I hope you enjoy it:

As soon as I get enough money to buy these, I’m going straight to the Yves Saint Laurent counter in the Hyundai department store closest to my house. I’m totally obsessed with Jeon Ji Hyun and this drama. She’s so stunning. And these lip products are flawless on her, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll fit me as well. Right now the lipstick is selling out all over Seoul I’ve heard. I only used one lipstick from YSL before so I’m very excited to try this one.

What lip products Jeon Ji Hyun wears  playing the role of fierce actress Cheong Song Yi in the Korean drama “My Love From Another Star”:
Rebel nude Yves Saint Laurent Vernis 105 Coral Hold up
Tint Gloss volupte shade 203 Coral Gondola
Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick shade 52

Products used:

Another recommended product is the IOPE Water Fit Lipstick in shade #44 Forever Pink:

Note: Currently Aritaum (korean make-up store) and IOPE ( make-up brand) are making a lot of commercials with Jeon Ji Hyun, about My Love From Another Star styled make-up. They’re selling their products like crazy, I checked the store in local Hongdae and they’re all out of the lipsticks. I’ll update whenever I get my hands on one of these.

Extra fun!

Here’s a few of the products that Jeon Ji Hyun/Cheon Song Yi uses that I’ve bought:
