How gorgeous is this Heimish Artless Perfect Cushion foundation? Although I generally prefer bb creams due to the fact that they cover my peach fuzz and textured skin better, cushion foundations can work great too with the right skin prep. Also, usually their packaging is very elegant and sleek, especially the high-end ones.
As with most Korean base products this cushion combines makeup with skincare and sun protection of SPF50+ PA+++. It includes niacinamide, adenosine and a couple of plant extracts in the formula.
Regarding sun protection, it’s necessary to always use a separate sunscreen and not rely only on makeup, because it’s impossible to apply the required amount to reach the labelled spf.
Volume: 13g x 2 ea (It comes with a refill so you’re getting 26g of product).
Packaging: Typical cushion compact foundation packaging. Sturdy plastic even though the top looks like glass, has a mirror inside, and the refill cushion is easily placed by pushing down the container to separate it.
The Heimish Artless Perfect Cushion comes only in two shades:
- Nr. 21 Light Beige
- Nr. 23 Natual Beige.
I chose nr.21 as that’s my shade in most Korean base products. The color is rather balanced but there’s a pink undertone to it (no gray cast). This would give you that tone-up effect and help brighten up the skin. I feel it would suit more those with cool and neutral undertones.
The cushion is the normal sponge type (not mesh) and comes with a puff applicator in a water drop shape. It’s desiged this way to help you reach the inner corners of your eyes or apply around the nostrils more easily. The puff itself is made with a dense and soft material which helps with the adhesion of the product.
How to apply: Press down on the cushion lightly until the liquid is released onto the sponge. Then dab it on the skin and repeat the process until you’ve reached the desired coverage. Be careful, as you may get a lot of product on the puff at once.
A mix of floral and soap-like scent which is noticeable. I personally really like it.
Performance of the Heimish Artless Perfect Cushion
Texture: Moisturizing light creamy texture which which feels weightless because the puff aplicator helps to spread it thinly.
Finish: The cushion has a beautiful luminous soft finish. Looks shinier as time passes, so I don’t think this would suit oily skin. For other skin types setting powder can do the trick if you don’t prefer the finish.
It doesn’t settle into my fine lines, however, it creases slightly on the eyelids so I need to follow with powder. Skin prep is necessary as this has the tendency to grab onto dry patches. So make sure you have a nice base to work on. This is true for most foundations/bb creams though. You always need to have a solid base as that affects greatly the product’s performance.
Coverage: Depending on how much product you use, this can give medium to (if I’m stretching it) medium-full coverage and it’s buildable up to two layers. It covers skin redness and little flaws very well. For noticeable dark spots or acne marks you need to use a concealer. A little goes a long way with this cushion foundation.
To cover my large pores I need to press the puff a bit more on the skin so they’re covered properly. I don’t face this problem with brushes or when I just use my fingers with cream formulas.
Lasting Power: Moisturizing baze products usually are not very long-lasting because they tend to wear off faster if you touch your face or when your natural oils come through. And this one is no different. The lasting power when used on it’s own is a bit disappointing for me. Powder always helps in this regard, but I prefer the dewy finish.

Final Verdict on the Heimish Artless Perfect Cushion
- Glowy finish.
- Tone-up effect.
- Medium coverage.
- Covers redness and small blemishes well.
- Additional sun protection SPF50+ PA+++.
- More suitable for normal and dry skin types.
- It didn’t break me out or cause irritation.
- Not very long-lasting on its own.
- Not suitable for oily skin types.
- Contains fragrance for those that don’t prefer it.
Overall, I like this cushion foundation. It matches my skin tone well while making it appear bright because of its slight pinkish tone. Love the glowy finish, how it covers my redness, and makes my complexion appear more even. The only disappointing thing is that it doesn’t last long on my skin when used on its own.
