A Bit of Nature

    Ever since my Holika Holika BB Cushion pact dried up on me, I've been on the search for something new. You can find positive and negative reviews on nearly all brands of BB Cushion currently on market, yet this CC Cushion from Nature Republic has been curiously under the radar for quite some time. I think my interest must have been piqued by the obscurity of it all, and so it came into my base makeup stash alongside several of its more renowned skincare counterparts.

    自從我的 Holika Holika 氣墊粉餅給我徹底乾掉以後,我就一直想再嘗試其他品牌的舒芙蕾粉底。幾乎市面上每個品牌的氣墊粉餅都可以在網路上找到生火文跟滅火文,不過 Nature Republic 這款 CC 舒芙蕾神奇的竟然沒有半點心得 @_@  我想我是被它的默默無聞給吸引了 XD,於是它就這樣隨著其他幾樣比較知名的保養品加入了我的底妝大軍。

    The packaging is more or less like other BB Cushion pacts, with a tight lid separating the sponge and the foundation to prevent drying out. To be honest, I find the sponge a bit too thin, I think I prefer Holika Holika's sponge for ease of application but the overall effects are more or less the same.

    包裝方面其實跟其他氣墊粉餅差不多,就是有個可以扣緊的蓋子隔絕海綿跟下面的粉底以防止很快乾掉。不過老實說,我覺得海綿太薄了一點,相較起來 Holika Holika 的海綿擦起來比較順手 ... 不過上妝效果差不多啦!

    When I first tried out the foundation before my dresser, I thought it looked quite matte in the mirror. But then when I took a step back and the sunlight fell on my face, the effect was a dewy and glowing skin that looked supple. I have large pores and redness on my cheeks and comedones on my nose, which you can see in this no-makeup closeup photo here if you're interested. I think this product covers the pores and redness quite well, but does not really help much with comedones. Dark circle coverage is quite satisfactory, but for full coverage you would still need a concealer. In these photos, I used only the CC Cushion pact and a bit of concealer on the undereye areas, no highlighter or loose powder were used.

    第一次在梳妝台前試這個舒芙蕾的時候,看鏡子第一印象是 "竟然是霧面效果?" 可是後來退一步,陽光照到臉上的時候就完全呈現一種『曖曖內含光』的光澤感,看起來皮膚有種潤澤緊緻的 fu。我本身膚況是兩頰鼻翼兩旁毛孔粗大且泛紅,鼻子有不少粉刺,呃~素顏皮膚特寫可看這邊。這款氣墊粉餅對於遮蓋大毛孔跟泛紅表現不錯,不過對於鼻子粉刺沒啥幫助(妝感近照可以看得出來  T_T)我覺得遮黑眼圈的部分比起其他粉底算是令人滿意,不過要完全遮住還是需要遮瑕膏啊! 這次的完妝照中,底妝的部分只使用了 CC 氣墊粉餅跟一點遮瑕膏來遮黑眼圈,沒有另外用其他蜜粉或打亮的產品喔!

    The lasting power of this foundation is not really great without setting powder, and tends to look a bit on the oily side after around 3- 4 hours for me, so I think a layer of powder is still perhaps needed though it may take the dewy sheen off a little. By the way, I did not use any software or specific lighting for these photos other than increasing a little overall brightness using Photoscape and sunlight from an opposite open window  :)

    這款粉餅如果沒搭蜜粉,持久度只是普普,在我臉上大概 3-4 小時就變從光澤變油光了 orz 所以打一層蜜粉我想還是需要的,雖然光澤感會退步一點。然後這次照片除了用 Photoscape 稍微調整整體亮度之外,沒有使用美肌或打光噢(其實就是站在打開的窗戶對面用腳架拍照這樣  XDD )!

    That's all, I guess, a rather simplistic review of a virtually review-less BB cushion pact. By the way, here's the same look taken without skin filters on my phone that day   If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or find me on Instagram (@ bonjourjasmineblog ) .

    就醬吧~有點陽春的心得,哈哈!大概是網路上這款舒芙蕾的唯一心得吧  囧>  然後這個是當天同個妝容的手機自拍,一樣沒開美肌  有問題的話歡迎留言或可以來 Instagram 找我聊天喔(帳號 bonjourjasmineblog )!
