Missha Magic Cushion SPF 50 PA+++ (No. 27) review

This cushion compact isn't exactly 'magic,' but it does do a decent job of creating a smoother complexion and a dewy finish.

People in my family don’t wear makeup, so I never grew up buying or testing it out on my face. However, now that I’m a so-called “adult,” I find that, once in a while, I need a little something extra to make myself look just a tad bit more polished when I’m off to a party, wedding, or job interview. It turns out that compact cushions are perfect for people like me who don’t normally wear makeup.

That shade was out of stock, so I ordered it online a few weeks later. Here are my impressions of this product (spoiler alert: this post is categorized under “disappointing products”).
