Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Matte Powder Cushion and Cream in #23 Review + Price + Swatch
Here's a review on Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Matte Powder Cushion and Cream in #23.
PRICE: Cushion Compact- P1,100.00; Cream- P750.00
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in SM Department stores
Finally, there's a Cushion Compact made for oily- skinned gals like me: Cathy Doll Automatic Aura AA Matte Powder Cushion and also, there's a cream. Also, Automatic Aura's bases boast of good coverage so perfect for you as well if you're covering up some boo- boos!
CATHY DOLL AUTOMATIC AURA AA CREAM IN DETAIL
This new base collection by Cathy Doll promises 9 benefits in one product: Auto Aura (brightening), Whitening (Vitamin C), Moisturizing (Collagen and Ceramide), Cooling, Concealing Coverage, SPF, Oil Control, Easy to use, and tone correction. The range comes in 3 shades: #21 Light Beige, #23 Natural Beige, and #25 Sand Beige. It also has anti- acne properties.
It's nice that these products comes in two forms: Liquid for the traditional ones and Cushion Compact (cream) for those who like it handy and trendy.
Matte Powder Cushion ingredients
The cushion compact can be sold as a refill so you don't have to throw away the base; very environmental friendly. However, I do no know if they sell refills. The puff that comes with it is of high quality, something that's similar to Laneige's BB Cushion Compact puffs.
Left: Cushion Compact; Right- Cream
The cushion compact has SPF 50 PA++++ while the cream has SPF 45 PA++++. Props for high sun protection. Both products come in the same shade, #23 Natural Beige, but their undertones are different: Cushion Compact has a yellow tone while the Cream has a grayish tone. I'd personally settle for the Cushion Compact because even if #23 is quite fair on my skin tone, the yellow tone would make it easier to correct.
The products have a semi- rich emulsion texture with medium to full coverage and a dewy matte finish. The products have a Eucalyptus- like smell, however, something that doesn't sit well with a lot of people. The scent threw me off for a bit because it is a highly surprising choice of fragrance for a makeup product, but good thing I like Eucalyptus and the scent goes away after a couple of minutes.
CATHY DOLL AA AUTOMATIC AURA MATTE POWDER CUSHION AND CREAM IN #23 IN ACTION
One layer of Matte Powder Cushion
This has pretty good coverage and I didn't need to use concealer and corrector anymore!
One layer of the cream
The products have pretty good staying power: 3 hours max before oil begins to seep from my T-Zone. It didn't cake during wear, but if you have dry skin, you will need to moisturize to get rid of the dry feeling and prevent the coverage from caking. Nice to know as well that this product has anti- acne properties.
Now there's an option in BB and Cushion Compact products for people with oily skin. Thanks for this, Cathy Doll!
