Happy Monday, blog fans! If you're looking for an Oscar-free zone (okay, it happened, as mistakes do, now lets move on) you've got one. What do are going to be chatting are a few new products from THEFACESHOP to conceal, contour, and highlight.
What do you get when CC meets cushion? Other than a very alliterative name, an innovative gem is what. THEFACESHOP CC Cushions are currently offered in concealing and contouring pens (with a highlighting option set to be released in March.) The clicky pens feature a spongy cushion tip, throughout which product is released. You simply dab product on and blend it out. Easy.
The CC Concealing Cushion is offered in a few shades (all look fairly pale though, as is the caveat with most Korean brands) and offers a lightweight formula with really decent coverage. The brightening concealer has a thin feeling formula that blends nicely then sets for crease-free wear.
The CC Contouring Cushion has the same spongy cushion tip, but offers a cool-based contour shade. The contour also has a light texture that blends easily (I like to use a sponge) before drying down and setting. I am not a huge contour gal, but I love the ease of this- draw it on, bl4nd it out. The shade is great for pale-light skin tones and can be paired with a powder for more definition if wanted.
Cushions are fun, but THEFACESHOP is also offering up creamy sticks of highlight and contour with the new Multi Sticks. Available in highlighting, contouring, and pore perfecting, the sticks have a creamy formula in a twist up tube for fast and easy application.
The Multi Stick Highlighter is a creamy pink-toned highlight. It glides over skin leaving a soft pearly glow. You have a moment to blend it in and soften edges, but once it sets it's on. I love the effect and shade (it's great for light skin tones) and as the name suggests, it can be used for multiple areas- eyes, brows, cheeks, and cupids bow.
The Multi Stick Conour offers a cool brown (a tad cooler than the CC shade) with the same creamy feel of the highlight. The matte contour shade is easily blended (again, I like a sponge) and sheers out perfectly for a natural shadow on skin. It starts creamy, but does set for pretty long-lasting wear.
Overall, really great additions to THEFACESHOP makeup range. As I mentioned, I don't always contour, but these options are the types of products I will actually reach for, as they're easy and the shades work very well on lighter skin. You really can't miss with any of these, but I am especially into the CC Concealer Cushion. What do you think? Are you interested in trying any of these bits?
