L’Oreal will soon be launching this Cushion Glow Blush in Asia and there is no word yet on when this may hit the States. It’s understandable that they would launch it in Asia first since cushion makeup has been really big in that part of the world and is slowly making its way to the rest of the world including the US.
More drugstore companies including L’Oreal are getting into the cushion makeup craze as seen by the recent launch of the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation and a few other drugstore cushion foundations. The US market is not yet saturated with cushion makeup but I’m expecting them to explode onto the US market in 2016 though they have been a major part of Korean Beauty for many years now.
It will be interesting to see how the L’Oreal Cushion Glow applies. I personally prefer powder blushes although I also have some cream blushes. Will it be too easy to apply too much product?
I guess because it’s in a compact, it will make it easy to carry and reapply as blush starts to fade during the day. From the name, it seems this would be perfect for those who like glowy/dewy makeup (which is what is preferred in Korean Beauty and not the matte look) but not so much for those who prefer their blushes matte. This also makes me wonder whether L’Oreal will launch a matte version of this blush.
I haven’t tried any cushion makeup yet. I wanted to try the L’Oreal cushion foundation but there wasn’t any in my shade and most if not all Korean Brands make products only for fair skin.
It seems the only company right now that makes cushion makeup that includes shades for those of us with chocolate skin is LANCOME. I may have to bite the bullet and try their cushion foundation which has been on the market for over a year now.
Have you tried cushion foundation including a cushion blush? Are you excited about this L’Oreal Cushion Glow Blush and can’t wait for it to reach the US or wherever you are?
