INNISFREE AMPOULE INTENSE CUSHION (COVER) FIRST IMPRESSION

Hi! It's me! You still remember me? T_T
I don't blame you if you've forgotten.. *looks at floor*

Anyways......

My skin has turned really dry during the past 2 years. The ridiculous air-con at my work place isn't helping either. I've been working really hard to keep my base makeup on my face. Primers, setting powders and setting sprays help. Most foundations crack or break down after the 6th hour. Cushions performs better, I feel due to the higher moisture level. That is why I've been opting to use cushions rather than foundations nowadays. They are so fast and easy to apply. Perfect for weekdays when I am rushing from gym to work.

Here are the cushions I have, in order of purchase :
1) IOPE XP Cover C21
2) Laneige BB Pore Control Cushion in No.21,
3) Innisfree Long Wear Cushion in No.23
4) HERA UV Mist Cushion in C21

and the latest one,
5) Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (Cover) No.21

Before I try the Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (COVER), the one I really like is the IOPE one because besides good coverage, it really gives me moisture and prevent my base from cracking. Dry patches doesn't show that much either. After I finish the IOPE, none of the others really rock my socks. I've been eyeing the Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion but when I read that it doesn't have much coverage, I gave that up.

Recently, I saw PONY's video. She is using the Ampoule Intense Cushion with the word (COVER) behind. My eyes lit up. I scoured the Internet for picture and information so that I can ask my friend to buy it for me from Korea but I can't find any. That's what prompts me to do this post. So that I can help or give information to anyone that is curious about this.

FYI, Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (Cover) is Innisfree's latest Winter 2015 Cushion release. It is a perfected formula (imo) compared to last year's Ampoule Intense Cushion which have a very light coverage. This new one gives you higher coverage and plus the dew lol!

Desciption from Innifree Website :

For reference, my skin is around MAC NC20. It is actually a bit lighter than NC20 but darker than NC15. I bought Innisfree Long Wear Cushion in 23 but I find it a bit dark for my liking so for Ampoule Intense Cushion, I got 21 instead.

A kind friend help me buy this for 20,000 won from Korea. Converted, becomes around RM75 ish. Not bad huh?

The packaging is similar with the Ampoule Intense Cushion but with the word (COVER).
This is how the box looks like

Back of the box

Top left side of the box is written COVER
I bought Color 21

sides

the other side lol

The cushion itself doesn't have the word cover written

I guess it is mentioned at the back of the pact in korean

As usual, there is a mirror and an air puff inside
Inside

and as usual new cushions are covered with a plastic seal

As you can see, the Innisfree Cushions are quite yellow based. I love it because my skin has a lot of red. Yellow helps neutralize it a little.
Pressed my finger in the cushion one time lightly

The coverage is quite good. If my memory serves me right, it is on par with IOPE XP C21 or slightly better coverage than that. I can't compare them side by side because I've finished using the IOPE one.
swatched

After patting down my whole face, my skin looks dewy and perfected. I love it. As you can see, the finish is dewy so those who hates dewy finish please steer clear.
blended out
After 6 hours of wear, skin still looks dewy and nice but my smile lines start to crease a bit because I've been talking and laughing the whole day. So I retouched and it looks fresh again! Some cushions like Hera UV Mist Cushion turn patchy and doesn't retouch well but this one is ok. So far I'm loving it.

I may update this post with more pictures soon. If you have anymore questions, you can comment down below. I think you can get it from Innisfree Malaysia outlet for RM107.59. Link here. Or the refill form for RM67.25. I give you guys the link. They also got the Christmas packaging. Mad cute!!

OK think that's all for now. I missed blogging so much but I don't have as much time on hand nowadays. I will try.

Love you all! Stay awesome!

Love,

Long Hiatus..

Gomenasai!!!

I have disappeared from social media for a long long time. Reason being I just can't find time to properly blog anymore (cliche I know). Don't wanna just churn out something halfheartedly and call it a blog post. :/

I was transferred to a busier and longer hour branch. This change has been physically and mentally exhausting for me. My typical day now is WAKE UP--WORK--GO HOME--SLEEP. 10am to 10pm. Then repeat cycle for 8-9 days before I can have an off day. I don't even have time to paint my nails properly. Chipped nails used to drive me crazy hahaha. Now I don't even care anymore. I'm still trying to get use to it. I will try not to be sad and make the best out of this situation. I believe more good things is coming my way.
agree?
On the brighter side, I now have the chance to clear my accumulated leaves starting next month. So, I made an exciting decision. I am going to enroll in make-up classes, part time. I have wanted to do this for a long time. I tell myself, it is now or never. I love make-up since years ago so it is high time that I go learn for real.
I don't want to regret not doing it
I am going to record this journey and my feelings on Dayre. (How to pronounce this shit btw? Dairy? Diary? Or Dire?) I seldom mention details of my life here because I feel that this has to be more focused on beauty stuff so yeah..

Initially, I made the account just to stalk my favorite bloggers like Xiaxue, Fourfeetnine, etc. Then I thought, why not use this to record my little journey too? So yeah, to those who are on Dayre, my username is queerpinkfish as usual.

Wanna insert one more cheesy quote before I go..
So, I guess that's it. Love you guys. Thank you for reading. I promise I will be back blogging when I have the time.

Lots of love, Pam
