Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ Foundation Review, Swatches and Photos

Per a reader’s recommendation, I decided to try out Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++, one of the most popular air cushion foundations from Korea.

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion Foundation SPF 50+ PA+++


Like the IOPE Air Cushion XP SPF50+/PA+++ Foundation I loved, the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ Foundation came in a portable white compact about 2.75 inches in diameter and 1.25 inches thick. Flip open the lid and you have a mirror on top and a bottom part that is split into two compartments – an upper one for storing a puff applicator and a lower one that holds a sponge (or “cushion”) soaked in a super runny foundation. To apply the foundation, you press the puff applicator into the cushion then pat directly onto skin.

The 5-in-1 formula contains:

* White Plus Renew Complex (Bead Tree extract, Korean thistle and Natto), the major ingredient of Laneige White Plus Renew, for bright and clear skin.
* SPF 50+/PA+++ to block out UVA and UVB rays.
* Soothing ingredients and cooling sensation that lowers skin temperature by 3 degrees Celsius to perk up tired skin.
* Elastic cushion powder against sweat and sebum for long-lasting wear.
* Spherical powder to control oil and prevent excess shine.

The foundation applied smoothly with ease and did not feel as moisturizing as the IOPE. The finish, though less dewy, was skin-like nonetheless. There was also a pretty strong scent, which you pretty much can’t avoid with Korean makeup and skincare products.

Color selection wise, it was better than IOPE. There are 4 shades to choose from – #13 True Beige, #21 Natural Beige, #23 Sand Beige and #31 Brown Beige – which all run darker and warmer. On my NC30 skin, I use #C23 Cover Beige for the IOPE and was able to get away with #21 Natural Beige for the Laneige.

As for the coverage, it was on the lighter side. A few dabs evened out my skin nicely but I definitely need concealer over problem areas. And while the foundation did wear well on my dehydrated combo skin, there was shine on my T-zone after 5-6 hours, which I did not see with the IOPE.

All in all, Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ Foundation was a decent cushion foundation that was easy to use and provided natural, skin-like coverage. But for now, I will stick to IOPE.
