IOPE Air Cushion XP Intense Cover

Faking a clear complexion is easier than ever with the IOPE Air Cushion XP Intense Cover! Formulated with two different powder sizes, Melting Complex, Mineral Water XP, Siberia Peptide 6 Selection, three types of vitamins and Pore Elastomer, it nourishes, boosts skin firmness, brightens and absorbs excess oil for a flawless and healthy finish.

Name: IOPE 아이오페 Air Cushion® XP Intense Cover 에어쿠션® XP 인텐스 커버
Price: ₩ 40,000 for 15 g ×2
Made in: Korea

For starters, this foundation smells like peaches. The cushions by Etude House bear the same scent too, so perhaps this is a trait shared among the brands under the Amore Pacific umbrella?

The medium (buildable!) coverage is good enough to even out blotchiness and take some of the red out of the areas with a lot of sensitivities. For those wanting more polish, you may need to do a bit of targeted concealing. I don't mind a hint of bare skin to peek through on the days I wear base makeup (to stop myself from looking like I have caked on cement), so this amount of coverage is ideal for me.

It actually feels fairly nourishing, perhaps due to its rich formulation (we are talking about IOPE here!). It gives the most gorgeous, luminous finish and gets me through the entire day without disappearing. The T-zone area would benefit from a powder though, to ensure everything is locked in place - this would only be necessary if you live in a hot and humid climate or if you have combination/oily skin.

Here, I am wearing I23 Intense Cover Beige. I23 (supposed to be more beige in tone than say, I21 Intense Cover Vanilla) is ironically a little too neutral for my skin and lends it the faintest touch of pinkness. It is wonderfully healthy and all but my terribly yellow toned neck highlights the colour discrepancy all that more. As a whole, I like it a lot, but I do think that it would have been perfect should it be a tad yellower. IOPE, extend your shades please?



The Air Cushion® XP Intense Cover retails for ₩ 40,000 on Note: you only have to purchase the compact once, after which you can go for the refills (that's some cash saved, woohoo!).
