I'm back with another review of the Hera UV Mist Cushion Nude in shade 23. I got this cushion from antcosmall.com in exchange for a review, nevertheless my opinion will be 100% my own! Do check out antcosmall.com though they have great deals (especially for sheet masks guys!) and free shipping worlwide!
I was already super excited for this cushion because I wanted to try it out for SO long but was always too stingy to get buy it with my own money haha. I heard korean idols use this cushion too so my expectations were pretty high.
They sent me this cushion "set"which includes:
- a cushion case with a refill (15g)
- one extra refill (15g)
Shipping from antcosmall.com was fast (~11 days from South Korea to Germany) and I'm very happy with it, they even sent me gummi bears as a gift which is so sweet & thoughtful, thank you very much!
This is what the cushion case looks like:
I love the white/lilac design omg
I got this cushion in the shade 23
(I'm a NC25 and the shade was a perfect match!)
There's a small mirror on the inside for on-the-go application
and a cushion sponge
You should close the lid tightely after each usage to prevent the hera cushion from drying out fast.
You can also throw out this sticker after your first usage.
The sponge is like a regular cushion sponge but I somehow feel like I run out of this cushion so much faster than with my other cushions or maybe I just used more of this one. I start to run out of it after a month
The cushion sponge is blue on the other side and looks like a regular cushion sponge. The sponge is a little more dense and stiffer than Missha and Etude House cushion sponges. I personally prefer this one much over the other sponges because I feel like they make my base makeup application much easier and more even than those super soft sponges.
Here's the coverage test of the Hera UV Mist Cushion Nude:
It seems like the coverage is pretty light. It will even out your skin tone but won't cover up scars, hyperpigmentations or rednesses completely. If you have many skin problem I wouldn't recommend this cushion.
Hera UV Mist Cushion Nude swatches on my face:
The finish looks SO natural and slightly dewy/glowy imo. It didn't highlight my dry cheeks at all and feels very moisturizing and light on my combination-dry skin. The finish looks like you would have sprayed mist all over your face, just like the name haha.
It does a decent job at covering up my pores and canceling out uneven skintones. Look how natural and skin-like it looks omg. It does highlight chapped, flaky skin patches though. I had some problems with it on my chin, it seems like this cushion isn't suitable for uneven skin texture.
So you definitely need to exfoliate regulary to wear this cushion but I honestly think that this cushion already does a great job at moisturizing and not highlighting dry skin. The Missha Magic cushion and A'Pieu Air Fit cushion even highlighted the dry skin on my cheeks but this one doesn't do this, I think the Hera cushion is already pretty good in that aspect.
The staying power isn't that great though. I started to look a little shiny/ oily after 4 hours, especially on my oily areas. You can definitely fix this with a touch up or a little powder but this is something to keep in mind if you have oily skin!
My Personal Rating
I LOVE this cushion and it's the best cushion I have tried so far for winter. It's really nice for dry skin and looks super natural. I think people with dry skin and not many skin problems will love this cushion because of its natural finish and moisturizing feeling. I would stay away from this cushion if you have oily skin or major skin problems because it won't look very flattering on these skin types.

I have never been more productive in blogging than now. I have been writing so many reviews these days. I finally wanted to review all these products and feel like I have been so productive, such a nice feeling haha. I'm going on my vacation soon and won't be able to post anything the next two weeks but I really want to post a small travel diary for each country *-*
Back to the review, I got this mask in a Jayjun sheet mask set. You can get it here and if you google a little, you will be able to find a 8% off coupon for your whole order. This set is pretty nice for trying out some Jayjun sheet masks before committing to a full box of 10 masks.
I honestly wasn't too excited to try this one since I heard many people didn't like it that much.
Here is what the sheet mask looks like:
The back part is golden! :0
You have to wear this mask for 10~20min. and pat the essence into your skin
Here's another fake check. This striped pattern will appear if you place a magnet behind your Jayjun mask.
This is what it looks like when you open the packaging:
I used this one at night (sorry bad lighting)
It seems like the sheet mask is gold one the front side and white on the back part. It seems to be a two piece sheet mask with a sheet for your upper face part and one for your lower face. I didn't notice a particular strong scent. The were a few small gold flakes in the essence.
The material of the Gold Snow Black mask is very thick and stiff. Eventhough there are tons of slits for a better fit, it didn't fit my face well at all and was way too big and didn't stick to my face well, it kept sticking out. After 15 min. it started to kind of dry up and cling onto my face a lot, it felt like an octopus is trying to cling onto my skin lol
This is the upper part. I couldn't take a good photo of the lower part but it was basically just the same material and the piece had a hole for your mouth.
The Gold Snow Black Mask had a slight cooling effect when I put it onto my face. As I already mentioned above, it was super stiff & thick and didn't hold well onto my face for the first few minutes. The fit was way too big everywhere, especially around my nose and chin area. After a while when it started to dry, it clinged onto my skin well though. It seems like the thick material prevents the mask from drying inside because the outside was kind of starting to dry after 20 min. but the inside was still super wet.
I wore this mask for an hour because I feel like it's a waste to throw away sheet masks that are still drenching wet after 10~20 min. It started to dry after half an hour. My skin looked brightened, more even toned and sticky when I took off this mask. The stickiness disappeared after ~15 min. and my face started to feel so hydrated, soft and plump.
I honestly wouldn't repurchase this mask because I really don't like the fit of this mask. Eventhough it's a two piece sheet mask, the fit is terrible. The worst fit I have ever experiences tbh. The hydration effect of this mask is just pretty average, it hydrates more than the Jayjun Rose Blossom mask though. My personal rating of this mask is therefore 3/5 !
Thank you for reading my review! ♥
I hope you will have a nice day!
I'm back with another review, this time I will review a Pigment from BBIA which I have bought a month ago from beautynetkorea.com ! One pigment was only like 2$ so I just put one in my card, I already wanted to try them for a while because they looked so sparkly and pretty on the internet swatches and on videos *-*
I also really want to get some BBIA Gel Liners, I'm waiting for the next BBIA sale though because I'm too stingy to pay the regular price haha.
They come in this very, very small pot:
Bottom of this pot:
You can find an expiration date and the shade number
There's this little lid over the openeing of the pot to prevent spilling or getting to much product. You will need this little lid, trust me haha
This is what they pigment looks like when you pour some out:
They look very chunky and like small crystals when you pour them out but after rubbing them onto your eyelids/hand they will blend to regular glitter eyeshadows. Be careful when applying them on your eyes. Some chunks might fall onto your cheek and create a huge gold eyeshadow spot when you're trying to dust them away.
Here are some swatches:
You can create different sparkle/pigmentation levels.
You can see how much it sparkles and how pretty it is!! ♥
I thought the more photos, the marrier haha. The color is more of a warm toned gold tone! It sparkles so so beautifully under lights! I love this color so much, it's very versatile and can be used on the middle of your eyelid to create some dimension or all over you eyelid to create a very glam/sparkly look ♥
There are some fallouts since the glitters are a little chunky and there are so many of them too! You can put a tissue over you cheek while applying this pigment to prevent fallouts. I have to say that fallouts are very common with pigments though. Try not to spill the it or you will create a huge glitter mess, I actually dropped it on my desk!
Here are some eye swatches:
BBIA Pigment in #3 Sour Taste 신맛 all over the lid
what I like about it:
- super glittery
- chunky glitters
- a lot of product (will last a while)
- lasts a long time
what I don't like about it:
- a few fallouts
- can get messy
My personal rating for the BBIA Pigment is 4.5/5 ♥
Thank you for reading my review, I hope you will have a lovely day!
I'm back with another review. I will review the JayJun Rose Blossom Mask. If you have been following my blog you will know that I bought a set with 5 Jayjun masks to test out and repurchase a whole box if I end up loving them haha.
I really wanted to try this mask because many blogger really seem to liked this mask. I got this from bbcosmetic.com for about ~12$USD. If you search around on the internet, you can find a few 8% off coupon codes as well. If you're looking for a website to get Jayjun sheet mask for a good price, please check out antcosmall.com they're 11~15$ for 10 Jayjun sheet mask! (link) ♥
Let's move onto the review, the packaging of this sheet mask is seriously so cute! I love that it's completely in pink and the Jayjun logo is honestly so aesthetically pleasing haha.
"Brighten your skin with Rose Water, Nourishing and Hydrating"
Here's a photo of the back:
You can find the ingredients, a user guide and caution on it
You have to place this mask on your face for 10~20 minutes. I honestly like to let it sit on my face longer because I feel like I'm wasting essence if I just take off the sheet mask while it's still drenching wet.
You can also check if your JayJun sheet mask is real by placing a magnet behind this small JJ logo on the front of the sheet mask packaging, like this:
If the logo changes to stripe pattern, the mask is real, else it's a fake. My Rose Blossom sheet mask was fortunately real, yay!
The Jayjun Rose Blossom sheet mask was drenched in essence. The cotton sheet had a brownish color. There was no plastic seperator which made it a little hard to unfold the mask, I had to be very careful to not tear the cotton mask.
This is the shape of the Rose Blossom Mask:
There were two cuts in the jaw area
The cotton material felt very soft and thick. No stiffness and the sheet mask sticked to my face well. The fit was good but too big around my chin area.
There was a really strong but (for me) pleasant rose scent. It helped me relax but it might be terrible for people who dislike rose scent or strong scents! There was a slight cooling effect and the sheet mask felt very soft and comfortable. It started to dry a little on my forehead and nose area after 30min. I usually wear sheet masks until they start to dry because I feel like taking them off after 10min is a waste when they're still drenching wet ^^;;; I kept this sheet mask on my face for 1 hour. My face felt a little sticky for maybe half an hour? after removing it. There was a small brightening effect but nothing dramatic and my face felt hydrated.
Overall, I really really like this mask because of the rose scent and will definitely repurchase. If you're expecting an outstanding hydration and hate rose scent, I wouldn't recommend this mask to you because it hydrates just like a regular sheet mask but I'm so in love with the rose scent!
I will rate this mask as 4/5 ♥
Thank you for reading my review!
I hope you will have a great day! ♥
