CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP Review - 04 Ginger

by - Thursday, June 20, 2019

Today’s review will be from a bestselling Korean beauty brand I’ve been meaning to try, CLIO! I’ve heard good reviews of their concealers (oh the coverage!!) so when I chanced upon CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP while casually looking for a product to try, I easily knew I had to grab it!

CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP claims to be even more powerful than the previous Kill Cover Founwear. It promises to deliver a ‘Flawless Coverage’ with velvet matte finish that can last for 48 hours! Wow! And boy, can we just stop and marvel how elegant the new packaging is? Wow!

Scent and Shades
This is available in 4 yellow toned shades, however, here in Japan CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP is only available in two shades: 03 Linen and 04 Ginger, and I'm using Ginger (medium beige). At first, it seems a tad lighter than my skin but I noticed that it somehow adjusts to my skintone afterwards, the color changing is minimal though, so there’s no need to go one shade lighter if you’re worried about oxidization.

CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP is fragrant and I personally love its scent! It smells like a certain perfume (I’d come back once I remember what it is exactly), but it’s not particularly ‘citrusy’ nor ‘powdery’ (Scent-sensitive folks, you might want to skip on this though).

Medium to Full Coverage
I love that CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP provides an impeccable medium to full coverage (just as I expected from Clio). Thanks to the cushion’s thin formula, it feels surprisingly light on the skin. It is not sticky nor greasy, it feels amazing on the skin so much that it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything.

Velvet Matte Finish
Korean beauty is big on dewy and glowy looks but my now oily-combination skin isn’t exactly good at maintaining a dewy base—that made me reconsider getting myself another cushion foundation but CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP proved to be a great discovery! It sets into a powdery, velvety finish. I wouldn’t call it “completely matte” but rather a semi-matte finish that does not look too flat and faux.

Long Wearing (vs other cushions)
The last cushion that I’ve tried failed spectacularly in keeping the oil at bay. I never thought I’d wear cushions again (especially now that it’s summer in Japan) until I tried CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP!

I walk a lot and I’m not really keen about retouching again and again but with CLIO Kill Cover my makeup would still look beautiful after 6-8 hours. Of course, I never expect it to last for 48 hours, I did get shiny on my nose area but nothing that looked horrible and greasy plus I also have the same experience even with crazy matte foundations.

With so many cushion foundations in the market, CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP proved to be an amazing choice for people with oily-combination skin. It has an impeccable coverage with supreme sun protection and a decent yellow toned shade range (plus they also included a darker shade in the range, it’s not as wide as the Western beauty brands’ shades range but it’s a good start!) I highly recommend CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP! If you like this review, don’t forget to check all my other Korean beauty/makeup reviews: click ‘Reviews’ to read more!
