Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation Review and Swatches

Michelle Phan's ethereal beauty brand has once again graced us with a glowing complexion item that is sure to become a staple in our makeup collections - the Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation. As a dedicated fan of the legendary beauty influencer, I expected nothing less than perfection from her brand, especially when it comes to Asian beauty and their formulas. Let's delve into this cushion foundation and see if it lives up to the hype.

A Chic Compact with Great Value

The Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation is housed in a simple yet chic white compact, adorned with the brand's logo. While the packaging perfectly aligns with the brand's aesthetic, the downside is that white packaging tends to get dirty easily. Nevertheless, the compact opens up to reveal a mirror and a pointed cushion sponge sitting atop a plastic covering for the cushion. What sets this foundation apart is that it comes with a refill, providing excellent value for its price of $48.00 USD. Each cushion contains 12g/.42oz, ensuring you get great mileage out of your purchase.

A Limited Yet Versatile Shade Range

One aspect that could be improved upon is the shade range of this cushion foundation. Currently, it is available in only 6 shades, which might deter potential customers. Considering that the brand is only available online, customers have to rely on online swatches or purchase blindly. Despite this limitation, Sweet Secret, a yellow-toned medium beige shade, proved to be a great match for many medium skin tones with a warm or neutral undertone. Its seamless blend into the skin makes it suitable for those with MAC NC30-35 complexion.

Sheer to Medium Coverage in a Lightweight Formula

The Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation features a soft and saturated sponge that effortlessly picks up product. The formula itself offers a sheer to medium coverage that is highly buildable. With just one layer, it covers light redness and discoloration, and additional layers can be applied for a slightly higher coverage. Although it may not provide full coverage, this cushion foundation surprisingly conceals dark spots and other imperfections exceptionally well. Its lightweight feel and natural, skin-like finish make it a standout among cushion foundations, which often lean towards a more glowing finish.

Long-lasting Wear and Dewy Finish

This foundation boasts impressive longevity, even without setting it. On normal to dry skin, it can last a solid 8 hours without fading or breaking down. While there may be some transfer due to the formula's non-setting nature, it doesn't feel wet or tacky on the skin. To achieve a dewier finish, pairing it with a dewy moisturizer works wonders without compromising its wear time. Whether you have dry or oily skin, proper skin preparation will ensure a flawless application and extended wear.

A Versatile Foundation for All Occasions

Layered over a dewy moisturizer, the Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation appears natural and fresh on the skin. Its ability to adapt to textures underneath is a huge bonus. While some may find the finish too dewy, it provides a balanced complexion, especially when paired with dewier cheek products like the Em Cosmetics Serum Blushes. The cushion's versatility allows you to achieve both dewy and matte looks depending on the products used before and after application. Overall, this cushion foundation comes highly recommended for anyone seeking a flawless and natural finish.

Final Thoughts: Worth a Try

Taking into consideration the quality, quantity of product, and price, the Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation is undeniably worth it. The only drawback lies in the limited shade range, as it may pose a challenge in finding the perfect match. However, the forgiving formula allows for sheer application, making shade matching less critical. Whether you're a fan of cushions or looking for a foundation with buildable coverage and a natural finish, this product is a must-try. Embrace flawless skin with Michelle Phan's creation and achieve that dreamy complexion you've always desired.
