An Introduction to the Laneige Brand
If you are into makeup and cosmetics, you have probably heard about the Laneige brand. Laneige is a South Korean cosmetic product line that was founded in 1994 and created by the largest leading cosmetic brand in South Korea, Amorepacific. It has since gone on to become very popular in other Asian countries and beyond. As one of the largest cosmetics companies in the world, Amorepacific puts in a lot into their research and development so you can be assured high quality and innovative products.
I have heard many rave reviews about Laneige either on makeup forums (e.g. makeupalley) or from my own social circle. The Laneige product that really caught my eye is the Laneige BB Cushion. The BB Cushion is actually one of the top sellers, leading behind the popular Laneige Water Sleeping Pack Ex.
The Laneige BB Cushion give off a classy vibe and looks rather sleek. As with all other foundation products, the Laneige BB Cushion features a reflective mirror and a power puff. The puff however is slightly more unique given that it is specially engineered to allow better application. (See image for reference below) Although the puff is relatively thinner, it is really soft to the touch.
So, what are the benefits of the Laneige BB Cushion?
Most Korean BB creams come with only just one or two shades, this can be especially problematic if it does not blend well and create a white cast over the face, creating a pale-like appearance. (A big NO!) I hope you’re as glad as I am that the Laneige BB Cushion comes with 5 different shades (See image below)!
It is common knowledge that a dedicated sunscreen should be applied even though the makeup product may already come with SPF protection. However, I do always look out for products that have a minimum SPF 30 for that extra protection. This is especially helpful since I do occasionally get lazy and skip applying sunblock (esp. when I’m rushing for time).
The texture is smooth and I love how it is so easy to apply all over the face with a gentle pat on the compact. It also gives off a cooling sensation upon application. It is important to use the patting motion so that it will last the entire day.
The coverage of the cushion is very good and was able to conceal my blemishes and minimize my pores with just one layer. This is especially important as there is a higher possibility of getting it caked up with more layers. It does help to even out the skin tone, giving a bright, well rested look with its matte finish. 🙂
Where to Buy Laneige BB Cushion? From Lazada Singapore!
The average local retail price of the Laneige BB Cushion in its boutiques will cost around $59. Unless you want to go all the way down to Korea to purchase it for ₩ 37,000 (about S$45), then your best bet would probably to buy online. The best place to do so would be Lazada Singapore (http://www.lazada.sg/), a website I discovered recently. Other than the Laneige BB Cushion, they have a large assortment of other Laneige products, all at an affordable price!
Now, you may also be wondering, what’s Lazada Singapore all about?
They brand themselves as South East Asia’s largest online shopping mall and they have operations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam as well as Singapore. And they really do mean it when they say they are a big online shopping mall. A quick browse through their website revealed that they have 13 different product categories ranging from mobiles, tablets, cameras, and consumer electronics to toys and fashion. Each category was broken down into further subcategories and it was very easy for me to navigate the website and find what I needed thanks to their neat and organized layout. Their wide assortment of items was very impressive and they also offer many products at prices much cheaper than the market rate. The fact that they offer free delivery on all orders above $40 as well as free returns if you are not satisfied with your product is also a plus. There are also various payment options including cash-on-delivery where you can pay only when your order has been delivered right to your doorstep!
