TikTok is the birthplace of many beauty trends and most recently, there’s a cushion foundation that is seen on every #BeautyTok video: the CLIO Kill Cover Mesh Glow Cushion.
One of the most popular cushion foundations in Korea right now, this has been approved by all of #BeautyTok experts on TikTok.
Read on to find out what’s the hype all about.
Immediately, the packaging catches our eyes with its light pretty-pink transparent casing – a nod to the rise of the ballet-core and pilates-princess trends on the internet.
This cushion foundation will undoubtedly feed your pink obsession while its square shaped compact packaging makes it easy to store it in your vanity.
Upon opening the cushion, we are greeted with a dense mesh covering the foundation, which is said to filter the foundation from clumps to give that perfect second-skin appearance.
Meanwhile, the sponge is made of a thin and sturdy rubycell fabric that absorbs and delivers a thin, fit layer.
It also has a distinctive tear drop shape that is ideal for getting into nooks and crevices that regular round sponges cannot.
To get a perfectly covered canvas, we like to use the tip of the tear drop to blend the cushion foundation on our under-eye area, nose, and the area between our brows and eyes.
Like most (if not all) Korean cushion foundations, their shade range is quite limited and only caters to fairer skin tones.
- 2 Lingerie: This is the brightest shade and ideal for cool skin tones.
- 3 Linen: Ladies with warmer, fair skin tones can choose this yellow-beige shade.
- 4 Ginger: The darkest shade in this collection, this has a neutral undertone.
The cushion foundation has a butter cream-like texture that blends weightlessly into the skin.
Infused with moisturising ingredients such as panthenol, chamomile, damask rose flower water and eight kinds of hyaluronic acid, the formula is lightweight and creates a healthy-looking radiance on your skin.
Don’t believe us? Just look at TikTok star @caspertheghostyy’s glass skin after using CLIO’s Mesh Glow Cushion. Her base makeup is so flawless that you’d think it was a beauty filter.
If you’re a fan of natural makeup, this cushion foundation provides a light #MySkinButBetter look when applied in one layer. It can cover light blemishes and adequately conceal dark circles and eye bags.
But fear not if you have darker blemishes, because this cushion foundation can also be built to a medium coverage without looking heavy or cakey.
Adherence and durability
You will find that the cushion foundation sticks to your skin the moment you’ve patted it in, and looks like your second skin without any flaking or dry patches.
In terms of durability, the mesh glow cushion foundation has passed a 54-hour long radiance clinical test conducted by CLIO with its skin film polymer enhancing persistence.
Check out @gladyslxr’s TikTok video where she does her own wear test with the cushion foundation. Her verdict is that her makeup still looks bomb after 12 hours and her skin is glowing without looking greasy, making the CLIO Kill Cove Mesh Glow Cushion a favourite of hers!
