This is my review on one of the best Korean cushion foundations available. I’m talking about HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture SPF 34/PA++.
HERA is a Korean high-end brand which means high quality in a more expensive price range. HERA UV Mist Cushion Foundations comes in many different types such as Cover (high coverage), Long Stay Matt (for oily skin) and Ultra Moisture (for dry skin). Today I’m reviewing the HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture SPF 34/PA++ for dry skin. This Cushion Foundation includes UV protection, Camellia oil and Hyaluronic acid for hydration and to moisturize and protect the skin. Anti-aging against wrinkles & lines. Medium coverage with a natural finish, improved radiance and a healthy glow. Comes in 4 different shades #13 ivory, #17 Rose Vanilla, #21 Vanilla and # 23Beige.
My expectations on HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture SPF 34/PA++ were through the roof really, but HERA makes the cut let me tell ya’! I just love this Korean cushion foundation! If you have dry skin and want an airbrushed look with a natural finish and a healthy glow then this is the foundation for you! The shade I’m testing here today is #13 Ivory which is the lightest one in the bunch.
HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is my very first Korean cushion foundation so I went all the way and ordered one of the best and more expensive ones. At a price of a 32 euros with free shipping from Korea, you get a cushion foundation with case + an extra refill. HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is a hydrating cushion foundation specially designed for dry skin types. This product just glides on with ridiculous ease. Even if you have never put on foundation ever before, the result will still be flawless. It’s impossible to fail with HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture!
I chose the lightest color of HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture called #13 Ivory. That color is very bright and somewhat towards the colder color range. Fits me very well in the winter time when I’m pale as ever. I can compare the color to Bare Minerals “Fairly Light” or Mac NC15 (maybe a tiny bit colder though). The finish of HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is quite matte, but not “flat and dead” if you know what I mean. Let’s say you get more or less perfect skin simply. I don’t know how else to describe it. You can see the skin, so it’s not like wearing a full coverage mask but more of a natural healthy finish. However, the product is absolutely giving you an even complexion and you do see a big difference. I would probably say that HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is a medium coverage foundation.
In order for you to know my preferences, I have dry mature skin. I am soon turning 40 and I have a lot of fine lines and small wrinkles around my eyes. HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture does not emphasize dry skin, does not emphasize pores and does not emphasize wrinkles or lines. This foundation has approximately medium coverage and can be built up whereever you need some extra coverage. In the image above I’m using some concealer under the eye on the right, otherwise the HERA foundation is applied on completely bare skin. No primer.
The finish of HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture feels somewhat dewy and a bit “sticky” after a while, opposed to matte and dry. I’m a little skeptical about that, however I’m not used to cushion foundations yet. The result and finish looks amazing. And it’s possible to apply blush or bronzer with a light hand over this foundation. If you are 35+ and looking for a foundation with natural finish in the same quality range as YSL, then try HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture. For only 32 euros you’ll get a full size foundation plus an extra refill. Thus 16 eurs / pc for a high quality foundation. SO worth it you guys. This is luxury makeup that could as well cost 50 euros or more.
HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture has a mild skin care scent to it. Nothing you pay attention to unless you stick your nose in the jar. HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is primarily suitable for dry & mature skin types. As always with mature skin “less is more”, and this applies to Hera’s cushion foundation as well. If you are under 35, you’ll probably look like an airbrushed model! HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is not for oily skin types. It’s too “sticky” and dewy. Well, I’m completely sold any way. What can I tell ya!
I love! I recommend!
My finished makeup look. The base consists of Skinfood Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream #1 in the under eye area and HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture, nothing else.
If you are looking for a really good cushion foundation with natural finish that is suitable for dry mature skin, then HERA UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is absolutely perfect.
