Just realized that I haven't done any product reviews or beauty-related posts in awhile, and so today, let me share with you my thoughts on the Missha The Original Tension Pact
which I have been using for over a month now. I received this as gift from a friend who went on vacation to Korea last winter and completely forgot about it afterwards, lol. Thank goodness this product still has half a year before its expiration date!

Missha's The Original Tension Pact
has four variants - Perfect Cover which comes in a beige pact, Natural Cover which comes in a beige pact, Tone Glow Up which comes in a blue pact, and Intense Moisture
which comes in a lavender pact. The latter, as seen on the photo above, is the one that I'm using. All variants come in three shades, and as always, my Missha shade is #23
. Good thing my friend got my shade right! :)

Unlike the cushions that I have tried before, Missha's The Original Tension Pact
comes with a densely woven net on top which acts as a filter that prevents you from 'picking up'
too much product for a 'more even'
application. The puff that comes with it is a bit different, too. It's slightly denser and a tad 'puffier' than the usual blue puff. Surprisingly, you only need a few pats on the tension pact to cover your entire face.

As for the formula, the Intense Moisture Variant
is creamy yet lightweight, and gives light to medium coverage. Not only does this pact conceal fine lines and cover minimal flaws (redness, uneven skin tone)
, it's also super moisturizing and gives your skin a radiant, dewy glow.

This product also offers sun protection at SPF37 PA++
. A bit lower than my usual SPF50, but that's okay since we're experiencing colder weather these days.

Its lasting power is pretty decent, too. It stays put for at least 5 to 6 hours before it starts to settle on the fine lines around my eyes. Nothing a quick touch-up could handle.
|Wearing the Missha The Original Tension Pact (Intense Moisture).
Overall, I really enjoy using this cushion and I'm considering to repurchase in the near future. I love how it hydrates my skin especially during this time of the year when the air is cold and can be very drying on the skin. Plus points because it brightens my skin and gives it a nice glow
