Avon True Color Power Essence Color Correcting Cushion Review


Avon has been around for so many years, I guess I was used to seeing them in their usual makeup line - basic blush colors, wide range of lipsticks, an array of base makeup, great colors of eyeshadow that fits Filipinas.

Then K-Beauty Collection came along!  Will this brand do well?

For me, the best way to know is to review their base makeup!  If you managed to create a really good base for K-Beauty look - you'll do well on the rest of the collection (that's just me!)

The first product from this collection I tested is the Avon True Color Power Essence Color Correcting Cushion (Php799.00).

Skin care and color correction for instantly improved, radiant skin.
 Infused with Power Essence for instantly improved skin texture.



As opposed to most cushion compacts you know, the similarity of the "thick compact" ends there.  This one has a "pan" and you only need to "press" it down and product will come out.  I prefer this type of packaging as it keeps the product fresh and clean beneath while you can control the amount of product to be dispensed.

There are a total of 3 shades - Light, Nude and Shell


Nude and Shell would work well on most Filipinas with Light Medium to Medium Dark complexion.  It was a close fight between Nude and Shell but I picked the latter because it has warmer undertone.  That said, if you have cooler complexion go for Nude.

It is noteworthy to say that all 3 shades have light to light medium coverage so you won't make a huge mistake in picking the right shade for you even when you order online!  Think of this product as as a skincare+makeup in one because this product is infused with power essence for instantly improved skin texture!  

With a few dabbing motion, you can cover certain skin issues like redness, sallowness, eyebags, etc... you only need to add more layer if you need more coverage but the effect will remain natural.

Before and After
Please check out the ff.:  2 light moles on cheeks, redness on the side of my nose and a little bit dark undereye circles.

If you look at both photos immediately, it seems like the CC Cushion from Avon does not do anything on my skin, but looking closely, the product evens out my skin making it look fresh and evenly colored without looking fake.  The best part about this product is that my skin looks glowing!  It definitely does not give a matte finish but it won't look oily on users who have combination or oily skin!

Though coverage is minimal, I appreciate the fact that it doesn't create a white cast even on flash photography!  Maybe, I will expect one if I used their lightest shade!  

Some of you may say: "But you have already good skin Nikki!".
Avon True Color CC Cushion is actually a great base for users for ALL skin types, do not expect major coverage as most CC products do not have such promise!  What CC Cushions/Creams does is it helps "Color Correct" your skin making it look more even, healthier and brighter!  As for extra coverage we can always depend on our favorite concealer for that!  

With this effect, I am starting to appreciate this more and more each day!

I personally LOVED this and I love the extra radiance it give!  I crave for this type of skin when I do my makeup so this product earns Thumbs Up from me!

AMW Approved!

Stay happy!
