The CC cushion is silicone based. This is the first cushion that I try and I love. I really like how it turned out in my face. The foundation is formulated with plant herbal extract that may cause irritation or allergic reaction. The CC Cushion itself is not formulated with non-comedogenic formula or even oil-free, but I am not spotting any fragrance in the ingredient list.

How to use: Press the sponge and CC cushion will come out, you can either apply it with the beauty blender or the sponge that it provided. stipple around the face and let it blend, after that use foundation powder.

Who is it for? All skin types, except acnaic or oily skin.

Is the ingredients skin friendly? Categorize the ingredient: Man Made, Vegan, Natural or Organic? Nope. The CC cushion is formulated without artificial fragrance but plant fragrance. The ingredient is Natural.

Is there a problem with the ingredients? For some people, the plant herbal extract may cause allergic or irritation reaction.

Is it cruelty-free? Does it sell in animal testing territories? No cruelty-free brand since it under Estee Lauder and it sold in China.

What do you need to know? CC Cushion is not going to give any high coverage due to the ingredients. CC cushion is basically a foundation in a compact jar and sponge is provided, make all of us easy to apply it anywhere, with the ‘promise’ that the coverage or sun protection is still intact. The beauty company changes the water consistency make it look similar to tinted moisturizer, which is not gonna give any high coverage. If there are any brands that claimed to give high coverage, it’s merely a marketing wording for those who seek easy application, cheap pricing but give more than enough quality.


CC Cushion is always in the jar with the sponge provided for easy application. Most CC Cushion always be rounder in Jar and attractive packaging. For Bobbi Brown, the brand still sticks with their original theme, black with white font color.
