Higher end cushion, is it even worth it?
I finally made myself write about this cushion. It was my first one and I got it in September so I pretty much got to know this cushion really well. Let’s look at it.
First the packaging. I got the limited edition by Olympia Le-Tan. You can know this 2015 edition in black and gold edition with glitter pencils on top. But I don’t like gold so I decided to get the pink version.
The box is pretty simple white with colourful pinkish pencils.
The cushion itself is in bright pink with classic white refill.
In the box you find the cushion case with refill inside + one extra refill. Then you also get the little note with information (as in IOPE).
Now to the product. It claims to be long lasting, I don’t really feel like this is true. As you can see in the video, the coverage kind of wears off. It also claims to be sweat-proof which, again, is not true in my opinion. The makeup feels kind of sticky on my face as if it doesn’t fully set into the skin, I get pretty oily if I don’t powder it. I feel really weird with this on when I don’t powder it, I simply feel like it’s moving all over my face and can be wiped off with single touch. I guess the formula isn’t the right for me (I will be Long Stay Matt too, hoping it could be better). The coverage is quite good, it covers less than IOPE but it does its job pretty well. The shade is maybe a little bit darker for me but I don’t mind that, at least I don’t look like a pink ghost. The smell is decent but you can smell it, however it’s really nice scent.
The puff is classical microfiber airpuff. It’s darker blue than regular one (compared to my other cushions).
Well what more can I say? I like this cushion, I have to since I already have it ㅋㅋㅋ I don’t like the formula however I feel this is really good for normal occasions however I still prefer the IOPE (it’s my favourite out of all the ones I have unu)
Where to buy?
You can directly search eBay for this product. I got mine from eBay, just look at the seller’s ratings.
Also as I said in the “intro”, is it worth all the money? I’m not quite sure whether say yes or no. I think it’s a no for me since IOPE is less expensive and does better job in all. They are pretty similar but still. If you’re wondering whether buy Hera or IOPE, choose IOPE. And if it doesn’t suit you, definitely try Hera. I feel like Hera is more for dry skin types? Yeah.
