Laneige x Lucky Chouette BB Cushion Whitening Review

BB cushions have been an "in thing" since (I can't remember, Lord help me!).  But one brand that got stuck in my head or in my opinion, started the BB cushion craze for me is Laneige.  

The first ever I tried is called Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion and the experience was great!   I've even bought refill after refills until other brands came out with their own Cushion I stopped buying just because I need to review other brands.

Then with Laneige Meets Fashion Laneige x Lucky Chouette, the cute "owl" printed on the cushion compact won my heart!  The design is limited yet so cute I can't imagine using a regular Laneige Cushion compact after this.  

In this collection, there are 2 types of cushions --- Pore Control (Black) and Whitening (Pink).

Obviously, I have Normal/Dry skin so I gave the Pore Control a skip and went ahead and used the Whitening variant.

Aside from the "new look" of packaging, I believe the product itself has been reformulated.
I've used this compact so many times I'm ready to share my thoughts on this Whitening cushion.

AMW says --- 

  • Cute packaging
  • The cushion is presented in a more textured cushion which I find it easier to grab product.
  • Skin feels hydrated and moisturized all day long.
  • "Whitening" product but doesn't give me that "ghostly" look.
  • Skin looks fresh and bright all day!
  • Comes in refill so you can save the compact for future use.
  • I don't know if it's just me, but it has a nice cooling sensation on every application.


  • Coverage is light to medium so if you have troubled skin, coverage may not be enough.
  • Oil-control is not as good as the PORE control variant.
  • Not enough shade choices.

A brightening, hydrating BB Cushion that works for users with normal and dry skin.


  • Use dabbing motion in application and the best tool to apply is the sponge that comes with this compact.
  • Make sure to wash the sponge before use and at least twice a week to prevent skin irritations.
  • A separate concealer is needed for better coverage.
  • Since this product is "Brightening", there is a tendency for a little flashback on flash photography, use a shade darker or 2 shades darker powder foundation to "set" the BB cushion.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.  I just did, but the refill.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Users who have normal or dry skin.

Where to purchase and how much?
Compact + Refill for Php1,950.00 (approx $46.00).  Refill only costs Php950.00 (approx $23.75) available at Laneige Shangri-La Plaza, TriNoma, Mall of Asia, Robinson's Place Midtown Mall, Robinsons Galleria and Robinson Magnolia.

I got shade 21 Beige for both, both fit my skin tone.

The Laneige x Lucky Chouette BB Cushion Whitening looks like the regular plain white packaging but comes in a cute pink color.

Aside from the "ribbon" of the sponge being the same color as the compact, the unique part of this is....

The sponge.  The sponge is more textured making it more easy to grab product without the need to press hard.

Since the product is Whitening, it doesn't have much of a coverage, instead, it has a nice Sheen on every application  making the skin looks healthy and bright.

Before and After
As you can see, coverage isn't as good but I like using a separate concealer to conceal undereye darkness, red spots on the sides of the nose and other skin issues.

I call this a perfect daily cushion that leaves the skin feeling fresh all day.
