This is the new 6-in-1 BB cushion released by Laneige earlier this year. Quite a few beauty bloggers and my close friend Kelly have been enjoying this new product. It’s specially designed for the summer time and it’s suitable for those with oily and combination skin. There are 3-4 shades available, depending on where you buy it. It comes with one refill and it retails for $39.88 on Jolse and $42.99 on ibuybeauti. At the moment, this version has not been released in the U.S. yet so it’s not available at Target. The BB cushion at Target has the same formula as the 5-in-1 Whitening BB Cushion sold in Korea.
If you already own a BB cushion case by any of the Amorepacific brands (e.g. Laneige, Etude House, IOPE, Innisfree, Mamonde, Espoir), you can simply buy the refill and it will fit into the case. Comparing the Whitening BB Cushion and the new Pore Control BB Cushion, the only difference in the outer packaging is the color of the case lid (light blue for pore control and white for whitening).
CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara
After the L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara failed miserably, I decided to try a good ol’ classic mascara from CoverGirl. I’ve used their LashExact Waterproof Mascara in the past and loved it, so I had high hopes for the CG LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara.
This mascara has a large rubber wand with short, plastic bristles. It’s a little too big for my preference but I can deal with it. The formulation is on the drier-side and it’s not as clump-free as the LashExact. But it is pretty long lasting and smudging is very minor or non-existent depending on the humidity. It definitely adds volume to my lashes without weighing it down. Overall, it’s a solid mascara for those with oily eyelids. I wish the wand was a little smaller and had natural bristles instead. But based on the formulation and the price, it’s pretty decent and I’d re-purchase this mascara after I run out.
L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara
The original version of this mascara used to be really popular among YouTubers. So when I saw a waterproof version of this mascara several months ago while I was at Target, I picked it up immediately. At first, I was really pleased with the fact that the formula is not too wet and the wand creates a very voluminizing, yet natural look without clumping. I was really happy with everything until I looked in the mirror 2 hours later. This mascara smudged a lot under both of my eyes! Since I have oily lids, I always apply powder under my eyes after applying mascara. This method usually allows my mascara to last for a good 6 hours before I see any smudging. But this mascara simply won’t stay put! It’s really frustrating because I’ve tried a bunch of tips that are supposed to prevent your mascara from smudging but none of them worked. For all you girls with oily lids out there, don’t try this mascara. (Please note that this review only applies to the WATERPROOF version of this mascara. I have not tried the original version so I can’t speak for it.)
