Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50+ PA+++

It should be a crime for Song Hye-kyo to look beautiful in the midst of applying makeup!

She is using the regular BB Cushion in the still cut, but I am far more interested in the pore purifying version.


Name: Laneige 라네즈 BB Cushion Pore Control 비비 쿠션 포어 컨트롤 SPF50+ PA+++
Price: ₩ 37,000 for 15 g ×2
Made in: Korea

This medium coverage alliterative base glides on smoothly and gives a matte finish for there is no dewiness to it at all. It does not cover pores but it does lessen their appearance. I normally associate enlarged pores with shine, so it is a shame that it is not effective against oil secretion.

I experienced slight oxidation as well as creasing along the nasolabial folds when worn alone. A primer must be applied beforehand to prolong its wear.



Retailing for a reasonable RM 150 (thanks to the refill) at Laneige counters and boutiques nationwide, BB Cushion Pore Control comes in four shades:
◆ 13 True Beige
◆ 21 Natural Beige
◆ 23 Sand Beige
◆ 31 Brown Beige

21 Natural Beige

The shade range is fairly wide (admirable really because most of the others only offer two to three choices) so Laneige is definitely the (Korean) brand to go to for those with sunkissed hues.

I'm quite interested in these cushion compacts mainly for the hight sun protection. It would be great to carry around and touch-up.
Do you feel that you need to set it with powder?

Kathy said...

Looks great! I kind of gave up on BB creams, especially the Korean brands because they always oxidize on me and turn me ashy looking. I love that this has a nice color range.

Bijin Blair said...

Hmmm, I don't set it with powder because of the matte finish. Plus the powder might cake or settle in the pores if I decide that I am in need of a touch up...

I loooove cushion bb creams! They're much lighter and look as if you're not wearing makeup at all : D

Arya De Guzman said...

you have great skin and large pores doesn't mean shine, I have large pores but I don't shine hahahaha, joking I have dry skin that's why. i should have bought this instead of a normal bb cream I mean look at song hye-kyo and your photo, it looks natural and beautiful :)

I love the way it looks on the skin! Look like it gives such natural finish without over cake-ing the face! I never tried any these cushion bb cream

Ahleessa said...

This sounds amazing! I need to try the sample I received. Do you believe our Targets carry Laneige products now?

Mizu said...

I really want to get this! But the Korean version doesn't have the darker skin tone shades..and the local ones are pretty expensive T_T

Frl Schnee said...

I only tried a sample version of Laneige's Soothing Cushion and I didn't like the herbal scent...I suppose the normal Cushion from Laneige doesn't have this scent though, right?

Bijin Blair said...

Hey sweetie! It has a floral scent, nothing herbal about it at all but our definitions of herbal may vary... I'm worried you'd be disappointed if you decide to get the Pore Control cushion?

Frl Schnee said...

Don't worry...I will check the ingredients list again. I think the Soothing cushion I tried continued some tea tree extracts or similar which caused the scent :D Thanks!
