Some people asked me what is the diff between Laneige , Iope and Hera BB cushion. So i decided to blog it here.
Battle of the BB cushions.
I have been using BB creams since 2012. The first one was from Etude house because it comes with a sponge applicator that is soo easy to apply and i was only introduced to BB cushions in 2013 on my first trip to Korea. My first BB cushion was from Iope before i switched to Hera because i find it more moisturising and gives a more dewy look. Different BB cushion suits different type of skin tone and texture. I kinda like the IOPE one but if only it is more moisturising and i felt that the sponge seems to dry up much faster than the Hera one. After tested out these 3 brands before. I decided that Hera is definitely the winner in my opinion. For all BB cushion , im using Natural tone ( N ).
Iope BB Cushion (N21)
It is about KRW 40,000 if i can remember correctly. Comes with refill pack. You can get it at any Aritaumn shop in Korea.
Coverage : 6/10 – Medium and if you need more coverage , you need to pat more.
Colour tone – Pink with slight yellow tone
Finish – Slightly Matt. I can’t see any dewy finish.
How long does it last – Not really long lasting and you need to touch up pretty often.
Laneige BB Cushion ( #14 Pink Beige).
Cant remember the pricing but its about KRW 40,000 with refill. You can get it at Aritaumn , Lotte Dept Store or Shinsaegae Dept Store.
Coverage : 6/10 – Medium but slightly more than IOPE.
Colour tone – Pink with slight yellow tone. Even though it says PINK BEIGE but i see yellow tinge on my skin. Noted the difference once i put on my concealer. My skin seems to look yellow and pretty obvious after i applied my concealer. You can see the skin colour comparison.
Finish – Very slightly dewy. Slightly matte.
How long does it last – Quite ok and able to last more than 6 hours.
Hera UV Mist Cushion (N21) or (C21 for the long stay summer edition)
KRW45,000 with refill pack. You can get it at Lotte Dept Store or Shinsaegae Dept Store.
Coverage : 8/10 – Good Coverage
Colour tone – Pink tone.
Finish – Dewy
How long does it last – Long lasting.
The dewy part and the colour tone part is the one which won me over because i dont like foundations or bases with yellow tone. Prefer pinkish tone for healthy glow look. Coverage wise not a concern because my skin is good. And usually i touch up after meals because i use wet tissue to wipe my mouth after meals and i may rub it off.
I have not tried the ones from Sulwhasoo yet. Maybe one day i should get samples and let’s see which BB cushion is the real winner.
Hope this information helps.
