Long before I’d jumped on the K-Beauty hypetrain, I was already a big tín đồ of The Face Shop. Their Lovely Me:Ex Angel Skin Powder Pact was my first upgrade from drugstore pressed powders (and still holds a soft spot in my heart for its finely-milled, soft-matte finish). I still hold their My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint as one of the gold standards for Korean lip and cheek tints: viscous enough khổng lồ not be messy and bleed into my teeth, as other, more watery tints are apt to do. I’ve grown lớn be such a fan hâm mộ of their products that, despite being on no-buy, I can’t resist at least taking a peek when I pass by their stores, excited khổng lồ see what new products or giao dịch are on offer.

On a recent trip, however, a sản phẩm - or should I say, product partnership - had me raising my eyebrows. The Face cửa hàng x Coca-Cola Limited Edition Collection honestly felt lượt thích it’d come out of left field. Wanting the cutesy pout of a Kakao Friend or the youthful glow of a Disney Character makes sense, but weren’t people told to lớn avoid sugary soft-drinks if they wanted good skin?

Still, I was intrigued enough khổng lồ agree khổng lồ give some of the products a try. Specifically, as a sucker for cushion foundations, I opted khổng lồ road-test their Oil Control Water Cushion as well as one of their bullet lipsticks, which I used as a multi-stick.


The Face shop x Coca-Cola Oil Control Water Cushion (P1,395)

Like many K-Beauty addicts, I’d fallen into the trap of collecting cushions, fawning over them for a while, before losing interest. While I liked the dewy effect cushions gave, the heavy feeling I got from stamping them on, as well as the tendency of the more long-wearing formulations (like the Peripera Ink Lasting Mint Cushion) to break up and pill on my face after a few hours ultimately had me ditching them after a few weeks in favor of my old reliable BB creams or liquid foundations.


Given these previous experiences, I was pleasantly surprised by The Face cửa hàng x Coca-Cola Oil Control Water Cushion. Not only was the formula relatively lightweight and blendable (I tested with using both a dense kabuki brush and a Beauty Blender, preferring to use those over the standard cushion sponge), but it also possessed a surprising amount of coverage, hiding my lighter blemishes to the point that I was comfortable going sans-concealer. In fact, I’d say the skin-perfecting powers of this ‘pact would be at-par with cult-favorite Aprilskin, if not for a few reservations.

Perhaps because this particular product was formulated for oil control,I found the Oil Control Water Cushion lớn have a dead matte finish. Certainly, it was nowhere near a Western matte liquid foundation, and it would be perfect for oil-skinned girls looking for a slightly more natural finish. For my oily-combination skin though, it looked too dew-less for my taste. Wearing this base for a few hours out did help a bit, as the formula melted into my natural oils, but this “settling” had the odd side effect of fading the cushion out on my forehead, which is not a usual place I see foundations coming off. Retouching was easy enough, however, thanks khổng lồ the cushion format, so this is hardly a deal-breaker for me.


I’ve actually taken khổng lồ using this cushion regularly since I’ve gotten it, so I can honestly say this particular tòa tháp is a win! However, I would caution those who favor the bright and dewy cushion look not to expect the same results from this compact. Thankfully, the formula does play nice with other products, so I’m able to lớn still get my chok-chok glow on with the help of a liquid illuminator!

Editor"s Note: It bears mentioning that the shade selection is limited và leans light, as per usual with K-Beauty bases. Best to swatch & apply this in person khổng lồ get a good match!


The Face shop x Coca-Cola Lipstick (P895)

While the cushion was a win, I’ll have khổng lồ admit that The Face siêu thị x Coca-Cola Lipstick is a pass for me. I have the shade Ice Orange, which is a terracotta-toned peach-red that I prefer for daily wear over the standard MLBB nude. The màu sắc payoff was good, và it did stain the skin of my hand. However, for a matte formula that isn’t budge-proof, I found lipstick itself drying even when worn on đứng đầu of a balm.


For the price-tag, I found this creamy-matte formula to lớn be rather meh as a lippie, especially when compared to lớn The Face Shop’s other lip products. However, it does have potential as a multi-stick: while it came off rather quickly on my lips, the lippie did last long on my cheeks, creating a nice watercolor flush when blended on with warm fingers. Still, considering the amount of hàng hóa you pay for, even this lifehack might not be enough to make purchasing this lippie worth it for non-collectors. If you’re a fan of Coca-Cola though, have at it!

The final verdict? Though the lipstick may be appealing only for packaging collectors, The Face siêu thị x Coca-Cola’s cushion compact performs at par and, in some areas, even better than similarly-priced options from other K-Beauty brands. While this collaboration might make for an unlikely match, The Face shop x Coca-Cola Collection is worth taking a look at, if only for the face base products alone.

Expiry date stated underneath.
Look at the dễ thương apeach puff! I replaced it with an ordinary puff cause I wanted to lớn keep this :p
Thefaceshop cushion seals are always dropping off and less secured, I wonder why.
When I opened it I was quite shocked to lớn see more of a orangey-tone foundation soaked in sponge. Afraid that it wouldn"t match my skin as it looks a little dark like that.
When applied, I would say it doesn"t look that dark on me. However, it may not be suitable for very fair skintone individuals. This oil control cushion has the darkest shade among my cushions collection.
So let"s vày a comparison with Laneige, Missha and Innisfree cushions.You can see clearer with the flash on. Thefaceshop oil control water cushion has the darkest shade among all 4. The undertone is orange. Laneige one has a pink undertone. Missha has a very trắng undertone. Innisfree one has a yellow undertone.Does it does what it claims?
Claim 1:
Shine-free moisturizing cushion.Yes, after applying it leaves a matt look. But the matt look last for about 5-6 hours and you can see shine & slight oxidation on your nose after that.Claim 2: Controls sebum for long lasting freshness.I don"t really lượt thích the formula as I think it"s abit drying. I may have oily skin but this enhances my dry spots on certain parts of my face, making it looks patchy. But many users lượt thích the mattifying effect of this cushion. I agree this cushion stayed on longer than the other cushions I own.Claim 3:Evenly dispenses sản phẩm from first to last touch.It"s easy to dipsense the product but I don"t recommend to lớn use this for cảm ứng ups outside.Summary of product:
~ Apeach +it"s pink! Who could resist? Every girl secretly loves dễ thương things don"t they haha. Pink always reminds me of Etude House and this one, it"s just another must have. It comes with a pretty pink glossy box with a xinh đẹp little apeach cut out popping out from the đứng đầu of the box. Comes with a refill & additional puff.| Smell |
