The Face Shop x DISNEY BB Power Perfection Cushion (Mickey Mouse) | Review

Recently, The Face Shop collaborated with Disney and launched a new set of irresistibly cute makeup products. I got my hand on one of their cushion compacts, which is the Mickey Mouse BB Power Perfection Cushion.

There are three types of BB & CC cushions, and each of them has a different Disney character designs – Winnie the Pooh, Monsters Inc. Mike and Mickey Mouse.

- Winnie the Pooh is a CC cooling cushion that provides skin with instant moisture and cooling effects.
- Monster Inc. Mike is a long-lasting CC cushion that provides coverage for pores and controls shine.
- Mickey Mouse is a BB cushion that offers powerful coverage for imperfections.

The Winnie the Pooh cushion has SPF 42 PA+++, while the other two have SPF 50+ PA+++ that protect skin against harmful UV rays. They all have anti-wrinkle and whitening properties and are available in three shades – V103 Pure Beige, V201 Apricot Beige and V203 Natural Beige.

In case you are wondering about my choice of cushion compact, the reason why I chose the Mickey Mouse one is because it offers higher coverage than the other two. As I have acne-prone skin, I always opt for foundation that gives good coverage.

The BB Power Perfection Cushion comes in a black colored case with a snapped-on lid, and it has a Mickey design on the cover.

Each compact has a built-in mirror and comes with matching printed sponge puff. Look at how cute the sponge puff is for the Mickey cushion!

And like other cushion compacts, it also has an inner lid where you can place your sponge puff.

Right under the lid is where the foundation is stored.

A brand new cushion compact is sealed with a sticker.

How To Use:
The best way to apply a cushion foundation is to dab some foundation using the included sponge puff and spread it using patting motion, from the center of the face outwards.

Ingredients List:

Tried and Tested

The foundation has a moist, creamy texture and has a pleasant scent to it. I got it in the shade of V203 Natural Beige, and here's the swatch:

And here are the before and after pictures:

BEFORE: BARE-FACED

AFTER: Only BB Power Perfection Cushion applied

It made my skin look a little ashy and grayish at first, but it eventually oxidized to match my skin tone. For coverage, I would say it is medium to high. It does an excellent job of concealing capillaries, redness and light marks. However, I do still need a concealer to cover up intense redness and dark marks.

I wore this BB cushion in the heat, and I have to say the oil control is pretty bad. It doesn't seem to control oil at all. My skin starts to look super greasy and shiny after 2 hours of application, so I do need to touch-up after 2 hours. For staying power, it lasted for 5 to 6 hours before it starts to melt. It would last longer if you spend most of the time in an air-conditioned environment.

So far, I haven't experienced any breakouts. But I think it's too early to tell, as I have only tried it for a week. Well, if there are any issues, I will be sure to update it here.

Overall, it provides superb coverage leaving skin a dewy-looking, smooth and supple finish with a soft focus effect. The only drawback is it doesn't have any oil control properties, so it tends to make skin super duper greasy and shiny very quickly, especially if you are out in the heat. If you have oily skin, I recommend using it with an oil-control primer or powder and also, be sure to keep a pack of oil blotters in your bag.

Update 02/09/2016: Sadly, this bb cushion broke me out. I wouldn't recommend it to people with acne-prone skin.

P.S. I have also posted a review of The Face Shop x Disney Tinted Lip Balm.

  2. I'm falling for this compact! I've never tried makeup from The Face Shop but the before and after pictures look promising. Your skin is great bare-faced! Seriously... Large pores are spreading to my cheek and to have it like yours would be amazing, I would stop using makeup :') Just a shame it makes your skin greasy, maybe more suitable for dry skin types?

    1. Thanks for the compliment. :) I recommend trying Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask/Mousse Mask. It works very well in purifying the skin and minimizing the look of pores. I think the Mickey cushion is more suitable for dry to normal skin and ideal for use in cold climates. If you're looking for a cushion that controls shine and hides pores, go for the Mike CC Long-Lasting Cushion as it is more for oily skin and ideal for use in hot and humid climates. :)
