Laneige Holiday BB Cushion (Whitening) Set

The bunny is in a really good mood today! (Yes, the bunny is easily excitable) My Laneige BB Cushion (Whitening) Set is here from Korea!

The Laneige BB Cushion Holiday Set
The Holiday BB Cushion Set comes with the BB Whitening Cushion, one additional refill and two mini Pure Lip Gloss.

The compact in this set has a reflective top (whitening version) and I personally feel that it looks much classier than the usual version (soothing version) I saw at the counters.

I couldn't wait to test out the BB cushion! Mine is in color #21 Natural Beige.

The bunny is one lazy girl, hence, I was happy to learn that the BB cushion is a high SPF 50. Sunscreen is one less item to pile on my face in the morning. 

An applicator sponge accompanies the product and it picks up a little of the BB cream each time when pressed into the BB cushion. I liked how the sponge felt velvety soft on my face and had a mild cooling effect. It's washable and reusable too!

I don't have flawless skin, so I prefer my BB creams to have more coverage to hide my acne scars and uneven skin tone.The Laneige BB Cushion's coverage is a little too sheer for my liking. To demonstrate, I used eyeliner to mark my inner forearm and applied 3 layers of the product on half the word. The letters "NNY" are still rather visible after the application.

After applying Laneige BB Cushion to "NNY". Letters are still very much visible.
On my face, though the BB cushion did not cover my acne scars 100%, it did gave me a natural, dewy looking complexion.

The two mini Snow Crystal Pure Lipglosses that come with the set are in colors LR09 and LR107. Both colors are shimmery when applied. LR09 looks fuchsia in the tube, but it turns out to give a sheer cherry pink on the lips. LR107 is a natural peachy pink that is great for everyday wear. Swatch below...

The Holiday BB Cushion Set retails S$49 at Laneige counters, but BB Cushion in SG is not the whitening version like Korea's set. The Holiday set gives a good run for your money, since the BB Cushion alone retails for S$59. 

I ordered my set from Qoo10 and cost $36.90, with free shipping from Korea. Delivery was pretty fast as well and took about 6 days to reach from the day I placed my order. 

NB: The bunny and is in no way affiliated to Qoo10 or their sellers/merchants.
