Holika Holika Face 2 Change Moist Cushion BB Cream SPF 50 is a new cream foundation product that resembles the Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ I recently posted on.
This is a popular concept at the moment in Korea and many brands are releasing their own versions. If anything at all the consistency is more of a creamy mousse versus an actual cream foundation. The texture is really quite interesting!
Have a look!
Holika Holika Face 2 Change Moist Cushion BB comes in a chunky black compact with a generously sized mirror and a sponge for application. The compact opens to reveal a flip top lid which keeps the foundation from drying out and creating a mess should you wish to travel with it.
Although the product resembles a whipped up mousse I believe that they actually took a large sponge, saturated it with foundation, and stuck it into the compact. That’s what gives the foundation its squishy, spongy texture. If you press your finger in it, it feels wet and spongy and bounces instantly back into place once your remove any pressure.
It’s a very hydrating creamy foundation product when first applied but dries down to a semi-matte finish once blended into skin. The texture is rich, creamy, provides sheer to medium coverage, and has a delicate subtle floral scent. I find it very easy to work with! I touch it onto my skin and pat into place with the sponge. I don’t think it’s very practical to actually touch the sponge to the actually foundation as it seems to gather up a little too much product. This leads me to the fact that finger application can be messy if you’re traveling with it for touch ups plus touching it daily, well, you can imagine the bacteria.
I got it in shade two which is a greyish beige with pink undertones. The color seems to adjust well for me and doesn’t leave me pasty or white. It brightens up my face quite nicely and leaves behind a flawless finish. It does have a shorter wear time showing some fading at hour three and disappearing completely by hour five.
Unlike the CC Cream in the Face 2 Change Collection, I really enjoyed the Moist Cushion BB Cream. The texture is just fun and so easy to work with and apply. It leaves skin with very fresh, natural coverage. The wear time is a little shorter but I can work with that.
I got mine off E-bay from seller F2PLUS1 (not affiliated).
