Happy Holidays everyone!

First Look: Missha M Magic Cushion (2015)

Warning: This post is 90% pictures, 10% text!
I have tried to colour-correct most of the images to as close as real-life as possible.

This Missha M Magic Cushion has been a huuuuuuge deal in Korea for the past month. Why? This was priced at 4800KRW – but I purchased it for double the price (including shipping!) on TesterKorea haha. Buuuuuut this product is out of stock just about everywhere in Korea (and Singapore! it actually retails for SGD$24.90). This product does not come with refills, and the shade featured in this post is #21.

Adapted from Missha; I’ve done up a crude translation of the details to English! And moving on to the actual product.

The cushion case is fairly sturdy; I would say slightly less so than the Amore Pacific cushions though. Fits perfectly in the palm of my hand!

Slowly peeling the protective sticker off… Here’s the cushion itself!

Comparison with Missha Magic Cushion (Empty) Case

IMG_5108

IMG_5111

As you can see, the empty case is slightly larger and fatter than the 2015 M Magic Cushion.

IMG_5116

IMG_5117

The newer product has a slight bezel where the cushion puff sits! Stylish design improvements I suppose?

IMG_5118

The new puff is however slightly smaller than the old one.

Closeups of the different cushions – I filled the empty cushion case on the left with the Missha UV Cushion Base, and mixed in some moisturizers.

IMG_5124

Unblended swatches of the 2 products: Top: Old #21 product, Bottom: New #21 Product

IMG_5125

Slightly blended swatches. My face is slightly tanner than the skin here, so I suppose this formula is alright – albeit a little orange.

IMG_5127

Blended swatches. As you can see this stuff sets pretty fast – it dried enough between shots that I had a bit of trouble blending it in! Definitely work quickly with this formula!


Hope this post helps 🙂 I think it’s definitely worth a shot, at the amazing price point. I will be making a comparison post with the IOPE, Laneige, as well as Hera cushions soon.

You can get the Missha M Magic Cushion at TesterKorea and BeautyNetKorea.

Sample Queen – Part I

I don’t think samples really count as a part of your haul, but alright… Since I’ve got so many samples, I think they deserve their own post. I received/ordered quite a few items – some from free sources in Singapore, some from SampleStore, and some from Roseroseshop. First impressions included! I will come back to update this post once I’ve finished using the product.


1. Benton Snail Bee Essence & Steam Cream

Woo I hope this is good! Snails and Bees on my face – I’ve patch-tested this on my neck and it seems fine so far. First impression: the essence is really thick, and has to be swabbed out of the bottle by a cotton tip. The steam cream is scentless, and was very helpful when I was in the dry and dusty Taipei and Hong Kong.

First impression: ★★★★☆


2. Missha Super Aqua Ultra Water-full Clear Cream

I received 1 sachet of this in a previous TesterKorea order and I managed to get 3-4 uses on my full face out of one sachet! It was really good at hydrating my face and feels really light on my skin – so I got a 10-pack. I purchased a small airless pump bottle to store this in, and it’s held well for the past couple of months. However, this cost around SGD$4… Which is pricier than the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel.

First impression: 4half


3. Missha First Treatment Essence

Everyone raves about this, so I obviously had to get a 10-pack of samples. I transferred everything out of the foil samples into a small 18ml Muji bottle… Even though there’s supposedly 1ml in each packet, I’d say there’s slightly less – maybe about 0.8ml. Not a big deal, but just FYI.

First impression: ★★★★☆

4. Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule (i.e. Missha Long Name Ampoule)

I also transferred 8/10 sample packets into a 5ml bottle. I finished a Q10 serum from Skin Inc a couple of weeks ago, so the empty bottle came in pretty handy for this serum sample! I expect this to last me a good few weeks, since I use serums quite sparingly. (i.e. it’ll last long enough until I get my other serums from RRS :o) I’ve used this ampoule for a week now, and the consistency is quite thick.

First impression: ★★★★☆


5. Cetaphil Set

Of all the free samples I received, Cetaphil was the only one who provided 3 different products! Wenxin recommended the Gentle Skin Cleanser anyway, and yes it does what it says – it’s extremely gentle on my face, so it’s perfect after using a wipe-off, oil-based makeup cleanser. I’m definitely considering purchasing this!

First impression: ★★★★☆


6. Acnes Set 

I suppose this will be helpful every month…? Mum suggested I try this anyway… How… do I use the Sealing Jell though?

First impression: 3half


7. Hada Labo Samples

L-R: Whitening Perfect Gel, Gokujyun Lotion, Shirojyun Lotion

Perfect for travel! I currently own the big bottles anyway, I can always pour more in if the travel bottles run out. Maybe I’ll review the Hada Labo products I have in another post.

First impression: ★★★★★


8. Biore Micellar Cleansing Water

Err… Maybe the picture isn’t that relevant but this is AMAZING. Okay maybe just as amazing as my Bifesta Cleansing water but w o w one swab of this across eyeshadow and it’s clean!!!!! Maybe I’m overreacting? I received 2 x 7ml samples from all over the place, and depotted it into an 18ml Muji bottle – I’ve already finished half of it in 3 days. Diz stuff is gooood.

First impression: ★★★★★


9. Innisfree

I got this with my previous TK order. I couldn’t find a lot of reviews online, but it was only 300krw… What a disappointment though 😦 The lotion is brown in colour, and heavily scented, very herbal-y or lavender-y. Seemed like just another standard emulsion anyway.

First impression: ★★☆☆☆
