Is The Innisfree Water Glow Cushion Really Worth It ?

Innisfree Water Glow Cushion

Cushion foundations have become so popular recently. There are so many options to choose from. I have been using the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion for a while now & thought about sharing my views with you.

What is a cushion foundation?

For all of you who don’t know, a cushion foundation is essentially a liquid foundation packed in a compact format. Traditionally, liquid foundations come in a bottle or a tube but cushion foundation changes that. The foundation is housed in a sponge like cushion in a compact-type packaging. Thus, the cushion foundation is basically the best of both worlds. Cushion foundations are meant for light to medium coverage, so they perfect for everyday use.

About the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion

According to Innisfree, the water glow cushion is a moisture-rich cushion that works to create a glowy and radiant look. .The 100% Jeju green tea fills the skin with essential moisture. It also cools and soothes skin and provides powerful UV protection with SPF 50+/PA+++. The Water Glow cushion formula is specially made for summers.

The product is available in 3 shades #13 Light Beige, #21 Natural Beige, and #23 True Beige. It comes in sleek, simple & light weight cushion case with a built-in mirror. The best part is that the box packaging is printed with soy ink and the container is eco-friendly.

The product retails for US$ 23.

What I Think About It

I bought the Innifree water glow cushion in the shade #23 – True Beige. It doesn’t suit my skin tone perfectly but it doesn’t even standout as too white/fair for me.

The cushion itself is really soft & the sponge provided in the box picks up the product really well. If you press too hard, you will end up getting a lot of product. (Trust me, I did that & regretted it immediately)

The sponge applicator is sized perfectly, fitting 3 fingers into the band of the sponge. It is really soft & feels really good against the skin.

The Innisfree Water Glow Cushion offers medium coverage in my case. So it is not meant to cover all those acne marks. But I find that it is a great product to get that even toned skin. Since it contains SPF 50, I won’t regret if in case I forgot to wear my sunscreen someday. Being a water glow cushion, the product does give you a little shiny/dewy effect. It creates natural glow effect without drying my skin.

It is just the perfect thing for everyday quick makeup. Even though it doesn’t stay on for like the whole day, reapplying it will only take 2 minutes & so it is not that big of a deal for me.

  1. This looks like a great products for a low price! I hardly ever wear makeup, but when I do I prefer a liquid foundation for my skin. I love that this has a dewy finish, perfect for a summer glow!

  2. I haven’t tried the Innisfree Cushion yet, but I have used IT and AmorePacific. I’m on the fence about cushions because I find them messy (I gave up on the applicators that come with them & use my blending sponge instead) and they don’t really give me enough coverage. Plus there are usually not enough shades for a good color match. That said, I love the SPF 50 in the Innisfree Cushion.

  3. Though I am not a big fan of compacts because of the powdery finish, I think this SPF50 water-based product is a nice idea. Also, the easy application, green tea component and environment friendly packaging are certainly added benefits…would love to try one 🙂

  4. I have never used a cushion foundation ever before. It sounds interesting thought, I might give it a try in the near future.

  5. I love cushion foundations. I heard that this one is a cult favorite. I use the AMOREPACIFIC one, and I’m obsessed. I’d like to give this one a try, as it’s less than half the price!

  6. I’ve never tried water glow cushion ever but it looks like a great product for everyday makeup! The best part is that it also contains SPF 50 sunscreen. I’ll check it out!

  7. I love the colors, it looks really natural and nice for your skin. Is it waterproof? I like trying new makeup.

  8. This post was a great inspiration for me, well written and with so nice looking photos! I’ve never tried a foundation of this kind so this was a good tip!

  9. This is the first I’ve heard of a cushion foundation. Admittedly, I’m intrigued. It sounds like it’s easy to apply and may be a solution for quick touch-ups if I’m out and about. Will definitely be keeping an eye out for it. x

  10. This looks awesome, I’ll have to look into giving this a try, always looking for new makeup that feels good and light on my skin.

  11. So, I am just now entering the makeup world at 32. I went to Sephora the week before last and the artist told me about my skin and found me foundation and concealer. I like the makeup-look (I guess to make me more even toned, etc.) and I was soooooo happy. I was a liquid foundation. I’m glad you posted this because I’m still learning.
