The Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation SPF 50+ PA+++ is a long lasting, moisturizing foundation in different shades, made for dry skin. It creates a natural, radiant complexion, won’t darken during the day and no touch ups are needed, it lasts all day. It’s one of the most popular Korean cushion foundations but is it good?
It contains organic and non organic sunscreens, many moisturizers, vitamin B3 and plant extracts. It is alcohol and paraben free but does contain fragrance.
Originally I wanted to buy the mattifying cushion but this one has better reviews, reading them made me very curious, that’s why I ended up buying the Everlasting Cushion which is more suitable for dry skin, but to be honest, my combination skin loves it too (at least now, in the winter). The packaging is beautiful, you get everything you need: 15 g foundation + a refill, a mirror and a puff for easy application. The price is not too bad anymore when you realize you receive 2 foundation for the price of 1! 🙂
The texture is great, it feels light on the skin, it’s moisturizing but not oily or too shiny, it gives the skin a very natural, healthy, radiant look. It’s one of the most pigmented foundations I’ve ever seen, it has medium coverage. It really is long lasting, I don’t think I ever needed to touch up during the day but I like to fix my makup with a translucent powder every morning, that helps too. I chose the lightest shade (Fair), it is beautiful, great for people with VERY fair skin: I’m super fair but this one is a bit too light even for me. It is perfect for normal and dry skin but I believe combination skin would like it too, I absolutely don’t regret choosing this over the Cover Stay cushion. I don’t like the strong floral/powdery scent though and it is not the best foundation to cover large pores but that’s all I can complain about.
If you are looking for a lightweight, long lasting cushion foundation for dry, normal or combination skin with a natural finish and medium coverage, you’ll love this!
