[comparison review] HERA UV Mist Cushion C21 & Summer Long Stay C23

As some of you may know, HERA UV Mist Cushion Foundation is my current all-time favourite make-up base. Cushion products originated from South Korea and has been a trend-setter in the makeup industry since its debut. If you are unfamiliar with cushion foundations, it's basically foundation absorbed in a sponge (hence "cushion"), applied with a polyurethane 'air' puff packaged in a compact. They are raved to be "light-weight", "portable" and provide an "even finish' by reviewers and beauty youtubers.

Every Korean cosmetic brand now produces their own versions of cushion products, ranging from liquid foundation, BB/CC cream, to blush and lip colour. Just last weekend, the lady working at the Dior counter in my local mall was telling me about an upcoming cushion product.


I choose the HERA UV Mist Cushion Foundation because of its medium coverage, staying power and semi-dewy finish. I ended up buying both the regular version in C21 Cool Vanilla Cover, and Summer Long Stay versions in C23 Cool Beige Cover.
