KOREAN CUSHION FOUNDATION SWATCHES


Here is the second post I make on Korean Cushion Comparison Series, in this post I posted all the swatches of the cushions I own.

A few things to know, if you want to skip to the swatches directly with no guidance click here

  • I am a shade 21 in most of Korean Cushion Foundations. In some of them I am a shade 23. I overall prefer if the cushion runs slightly lighter rather than darker, as it is better to fix.
  • As you can obviously see from the screenshot some are better matches than other. I don’t live in South Korea, so I was only lucky enough to get some of them matched when I was over there, or when I went to New York. I am sure there are some shades for some cushions that would fit me better than those I have.
  • I have a pretty neutral undertone.
  • Lightening is the same for all swatches and I have used artificial lightening, however, my arm was still exposed to the window and I could not control the natural lightening that came in and its changes a bit.
  • Swatches were done on my arm. Photos do not have any retouching and they are straight from the camera.
  • This post contains affiliate links, if you decide to purchase through those you will support this blog, so thank you! However, I did not personally purchased from the exact sellers, nor I monitor the listings if those are updated, so use your judgement.
  • Feel free to share this post and spread the love, I truly appreciate it!
  • This post is image heavy, it is recommended to read this on desktop, as on mobile it can use a lot of data, or not render depending on the device. Once you click the cushion title please allow a few seconds for the image to load if you are on 3G/4G. I could not find a way to optimise this better with my tech skills, sorry!
  • Here are some foundation shades that suit me perfectly and some others who do not suit me 100%, but they are still ok on me if worked correctly. Unfortunately I don’t have many nor I have a MAC equivalent
