Hey there! It’s a cool and gloomy morning, as I pen down my thoughts about Mamonde’s NEW Brightening Cover Powder Cushion… 🙂
For those who are still unaware, Mamonde has finally made its way to our shores with the 1st beauty counter at Tangs VivoCity. You can also shop their collection on LazadaSG or grab their skincare products at selected Sephora stores and online.
Now, Mamonde has expanded its beauty presence at Isetan Tampines! Woohoo to us East siders cos VivoCity is actually quite far la…hahaha
In conjunction with the 4th beauty presence, Mamonde has launched the BRIGHTENING COVER CUSHIONS – POWDER & WATERY versions (right to left).
In this post, I’ll be sharing about the Brightening Cover POWDER Cushion first! ^^
This is basically a cushion that gives you a powder finish on your skin.
- Clean coverage
- Velvet-matte finish
As the name suggests, it has a powder finish. You can see it looks like powder on your skin. I have dehydrated oily skin (tilting towards combination skin type) and I prefer to gently dust loose powder over it, as it is already very matte.
The texture is pretty thick but doesn’t settle into the pores. The coverage is pretty similar to your typical BB cushions in general. You will still need to use a concealer to cover those blemishes. Due to the powder matte touch, it can look cakey under the eyes. I suggest using a hydrating primer underneath or dab little product around that area. Alternatively, you can also just use a concealer instead.
In terms of longevity, it does last a long time. But once you perspire, I feel that it doesn’t hold as well as the Watery version. Also, I recommend gently dabbing any excess sebum because too much pressure can make the existing makeup a lil’ messy (not sure how to describe this well).
The cover fit puff feels very nice on the skin and makes application easier and smoother.
I have previously tried Etude House Real Powder Cushion and didn’t enjoy it. You can read more about it here. In comparison, I feel that this Mamonde’s Brightening Cover Powder Cushion isn’t as cakey, doesn’t settle into my pores and lasts much longer.
Overall, this is a nice powder cushion but it’s a little too matte for everyday. I prefer the Brightening Cover WATERY cushion. Hop over here to find out why!
