There are a lot of CC Cushion available on stores nowadays but I’ve gotta say that Nlighten CC cushion is my favorite and my best pick.
There are a lot of Nlighten products reseller’s online but I got mine from shoppingvirtuoso on shopee for Php1,640, free shipping within Philippines. This cushion can last for 2-3 months if you’re using it on a daily basis but I had mine for over 3 months na yata if I’m not mistaken?
What’s good about this product is you only have to use it once a day because it can last on your face the whole day. No need for retouch retouch! It’s packaging also looks classy, hindi mukang cheap press powder. You wouldn’t feel weird putting it out in public unlike the other CC Cushions out there.
Nlighten CC Cushion with a mirror inside and a place to put your CC puff on so it won’t get doused atop the cushion itself making it easy for you to put it on without having a need to find a big mirror.
Talking about the beige fluid inside the cushion, I can say that it’s fascinating because it doesn’t just cover your blemishes and make your skin glow, it also protects your skin from sun’s radiation with its SPF 50+ making it not just your daily lightweight concealer but also your sunblock.
Is it Lightweight?
Yes, you heard that right. Nlighten CC Cushion feels lightweight on your face. It also doesn’t dry up your skin + it won’t make you feel so heavy and oily like the usual cosmetic foundations, concealers, press powders, BB Creams and CC Creams sold in the market and this is not an exaggeration.
What if I get sweaty? Does it cake? Is it waterproof?
Yes, Nlighten CC Cushion is waterproof. It works fine even if you get sweaty and it doesn’t cake when you get splashed by water. As a matter of fact, I think this product look even more better when you start to sweat out a but because it blends further with your skin color and adapts the real shade of your skin. Aside from that, it also works on the oil balance of your skin making it somehow appear like a porcelain, it gives you that korean skin look.
How do I use it?
I personally wash my face first with some gentle facial wash (Celeteque Hydration FW), apply my toner (Celeteque Hydration Toner) and let it dry up on my face for about 3 minutes then I put my moisturizer (Nature’s Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel) on before applying a thin layer of Nlighten CC Cushion on.
After a while you’ll notice that glow effect on your face and though it doesn’t totally cover your blemishes, it lightens it up and makes your skin look smoother and finer.

Nlighten CC cushion brightens up your face but I have this little problem on my skin color that I really look pale and brightening up my face makes me even more paler so if you have pale colored skin, I suggest you use some blush on or cheek tint on your cheeks to add some color to your brightened face.
Another cons here is that it can cause a slight whiteheads on your nose and on your cheeks (below the eyebags) so you might need to use moisturizer or primer before using this one.
