Balala CC UV Mist Cushion Review1:12:00 PM
What's your stand on copy-cat companies? You know the ones that release products that look similar or exactly identical to another brand's?
If you've read my recent haul here, I've finally acquired the number one (in terms of bases) cosmetic darling in Korea that's also currently gaining traction in the US — the cushion base.
This beyond pretty compact reminds me of Harley Quinn and Harlequin (not to be confused with the books) and I love the design to bits as if you can't tell by now.
Going back to my opening statement, companies do copy other brands, especially if they've come up with something new, innovative and/or highly salable.

Germophobes won't be able to stand the sight of a soaked sponge that you dip your puff into periodically during the day. I honestly wasn't too concerned about that when cushions first came out.
As you can see it's very sheer but easy enough to apply. I have to warn you though, this isn't a summer CC cream. It doesn't blend easily onto the skin because of heat outside and/or your body.
- Apply sparingly and in light sheer layers, wait to dry then apply more if needed.
- Set immediately as this leaves a dewy finish.
- To avoid cakey-ness use as a primer similar to the texture of your base.
- Use a synthetic brush and buff in for faster application.
