The Face Shop has collaborated with My Other Bag earlier this year, and together they have created three types of CC cushion with a fashionista packaging that any bags lovers would adore. I bought these purely on the packaging and I also want to try The Face Shop products since I am not so familiar with the brand nor have I tested many makeup products from the brand.

Today I am sharing with you my first impression of the CC Oil Control Water Cushion and CC Intense Cover Cushion from the The Face Shop x My Other Bag collection; and I am so excited to be finally reviewing a beauty product that is still available to purchase. (Sorry for sharing with you too many Limited Edition and/or products that are no longer available on the markets lately).

There are three CC Cushions available in the The Face Shop x My Other Bag collection and they are: CC Oil Control Water Cushion, CC Intense Cover Cushion and CC Ultra Moist Cushion. Each cushion is available in three shades V103 (pure beige), V201 (apricot beige) and V203 (natural beige). I self-matched my shade via Google image and picked up V201 which is a little light on my NC25 skin tone, but the color still match.

I originally only wanted the CC Intense Cover Cushion because of the Chanel bag inspired packaging, but I ended up getting the CC Oil Control Water Cushion too as I have oily skin and I thought that it would be good to have another formula to compare. I didn't get the CC Ultra Moist Cushion as I believe that is designed for people with dry skin, also I wasn't too much a fan of the packaging, so I saved my money.

The Face Shop x My Other Bag each comes with a cute little pouch with a bag design printed in the front to match its' actual cushion packaging and on the back of the pouch it has the names of the design (I assume) and a short description.

Each CC Cushion is housed in a standard two compartment compact with a mirror and a puff included. I love the designs of the puffs, but I am sad to say that I am not a fan of the quality. I feel like the puffs are hard, not too soft and bouncy, they apply the CC Cushion okay, but they are very hard to wash. I have since throw away two (I received extra puff from my order) because I have washed them with soaps, shampoos and sponge cleansers a couple of times, but the puff is still dirty and there were still products squeaking out; I had no choice but to throw them out.

 The Face Shop x My Other Bag CC Intense Cover Cushion is inspired by the Jackie tote and the design is my absolute favourite! The CC Intense Cover Cushion says to provides whitening, winkle care and it has UV protection, it is SPF 50+ PA +++ with high absorbing hyaluronate acid that gives rich hydration and fills skin with moisture for volume skin care. The Intense CC Cushion claims to covers blemishes, balance uneven skin tone and provides a flawless skin effect.

To be absolutely truthful with my readers, I am not even going to hide the fact that I Photoshop and smooth my skin in most of my lip swatches photos. It's not that I have bad skin texture etc..., but my main focus is to show the colors of a certain lip product I was reviewing.

I want to be honest with my reviews of a face product that requires me to show the before and after results, therefore, I keep all photos that shows my face in this first impression post "un-smoothed" (if that is even a word).

  MY FIRST IMPRESSION

Upon my first applicator of the CC Intense Cover Cushion, I immediately see the difference. The CC Cushion covers my blemishes and it brightens up my uneven skin tone; but at the same time it feels heavy and it looked as if I had applied too much. Also, my pores looks huge and it showed little bumps around my chin.

During the day after approximately 4 - 5 hours wear, my face felt very heavy (if I exaggerated a bit, it felt like there were oil dripping from my face), so I checked in the mirror to see that my face was in fact very oily. I wear glasses and the areas around my nose are all rubbed off, right then I wanted to wash my face badly and re-do my makeup.

Although the CC Intense Cover Cushion worn for long hours (9 hours), the end result was pretty scary. Large pores everywhere, bumpy around the chin, nose area totally rubbed off from wearing glasses, around the mouth area and the chin looks like dry patches.

Not to mention, my lipstick looked horrible on the day I took these pictures! It was overall a bad face day lol ~

 The Face Shop x My Other Bag CC Oil Control Water Cushion is inspired by the Zoey tote. There are no a lot of clear description stated online, but a few says this product will increase vitality to the skin, moisture skin while hiding imperfection and dark effects. This CC Cushion claims to be tough on sweat, long wearing and it will provide a smooth, silky and glowing skin.

  MY FIRST IMPRESSION

As soon as I have applied the CC Oil Control Water Cushion, I notice that the texture is thin and the puff doesn't pick up a lot of product, but still managed to applied onto the face smoothly and evenly. This CC Cushion feels dreamy when applied, it blends well, but at the same time it shows a little sign of streaky-ness which can be layered to make it even. It blurs imperfection and in real life my face shows a healthy glow without looking oily and most importantly, it doesn't feel heavy at all, very lightweight and wears comfortably.

I checked in the mirror before lunch, approximately 4 hours wear; my cheek and my T-zone was a little oily, the nose area is a little rubbed off due to wearing glasses and some areas has faded. I checked again before leaving work and I was rather impressed with how well it stays apart from the little oily-ness. In total I have worn the CC Oil Control Water Cushion for 7 hours and during the whole wear, it was comfortable, lightweight, it doesn't clings to dry patches, it keeps my face fresh, not too oily and most importantly, the CC Cushion didn't make my face look cakey.

Both CC Cushion claims to covers imperfection and provides a flawless skin, and while my before and after photos above shown good coverage result, I am still curious as to how well these covers with something more intense than just bare skin. So I draw two rectangles on my arm with a Colourpop brow pencils, then covered up the brow pencil with CC Oil Control Water Cushion on the left and CC Intense Cover Cushion on the right.

As you can see, both CC Cushion covers quite well. CC Oil Control Water Cushion is a little sheer compare to CC Intense Cover Cushion.

 OVERALL THOUGHTS 
CC INTENSE COVER CUSHION
product rating: (one bow only for the packaging)

It's sad to say that I love nothing about this CC Intense Cover Cushion apart from its cute packaging >.< ~ I like that it brightens up my skin tone and covers imperfection well, but I could not stand that it gets so oily (obviously not made for those with oily face) and it has weird bumps around the chin and enlarged pores. I also didn't like that the CC Cushion feels heavy even though I have applied lightly, and it looked as if I have layered and layered of products on, thick and gross.


 OVERALL THOUGHTS 
CC OIL CONTROL WATER CUSHION
product rating: (four bows for the packaging and effectiveness)
   

This is nothing like the CC Intense Cover Cushion that I have tried previously. The CC Oil Control Water Cushion works amazingly on oily skin, it has a thin formula that applies smoothly and evenly, it brightens and blurs imperfection while being lightweight and comfortable to wear. After a few hours of wearing, the T-zone does gets oily, but the face doesn't feel or look cakey. I love the packaging, but not as much as the Intense Cover one.


have you tried The Face Shop

  3. This was a great post. I love your pictures. What is that pink sparkly thing you used as a background? It's so cute. Where did you get it?
    And where did you get the fuzzy pink/purple/blue background from the "Kylie Lip Kit vs Colourpop" post. So cute.
    Lots of love from New York 😊
