L’Oreal Lucent Magique Cushion Blush Launches in Japan

L'Oreal Cushion Blush

L’Oreal Lucent Magique Cushion Blush launched in Japan this month! Unfortunately my experience thus far with Cushion Blush has been a fail, I’m talking to you Etude House Cushion Blush! Wince! But it’s becoming increasingly popular in Asia as hey, we need something to follow up from the success of cushion foundation right?

Cushion makeup is getting more and more of a cult following here in the US as well and we got our first drugstore cushion recently, L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion. Sephora is also taking on the trend as well with the recent introduction of their I Love Cushion Makeup Collection that features an cushion eyeliner and the new Wonderful Cushion Foundation as well as an upcoming cushion bronzer (which leads me to believe that blush isn’t far behind).

I’m hopeful come Summer we’ll see L’Oreal’s new cushion blush here in the US.

So far it’s available in three shades and launched officially this month in Japan. This has a mineral water enriched formula that keeps skin moist and gives a dewy flush to cheeks and face.

I’m hopeful the formula proves better than what I’ve currently seen from cushion blushes!

What do you think of cushion blushes?


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I remember when Almay had a “nearly naked” line that included a cushion blush. It was one of my favorite blushes! I hope we see some cushion blushes in the drugstores soon!

    Oh my goodness. I am tingling with excitement. I really hope these arrive here along with the cushion lip tints. Thanks for the heads up

    I drool every time I see something cushion lol, I just wish Asian makeup brands would expand and sell in the US be more accessible like Laneige has done instead of getting replicas from US brands not that I have something against that I just like more the ingredients that some of the brands there use especially when it comes to skincare.
