Product Review: W.Lab W-Honey Beam Cushion BB Cream SPF 50 PA++ #23

The cushion BB/CC/foundation craze never stops. Brand after brand is releasing their versions. I have never tried a cushion BB cream before because I am so in-love with the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream that all others are non-existent to me. But when Althea Korea contacted me to become their beta tester, I decided to give cushion BB creams a try. I saw the W.Lab W-Honey Beam Cushion BB Cream SPF 50 PA++ and I thought the packaging looks cute. It is also endorsed by the infamous ulzzang Hong Young Gi (not sure if she actually owns the brand) so I was definitely sold. This is the first time I tried a cushion BB cream and I must say I am impressed. I might try other brands as well because I just love the effect of the W.Lab W-Honey Beam Cushion BB Cream on my skin.

  • Dispenses enough amount of product on the sponge
  • Matches my skin tone well
  • Has decent coverage
  • Dewy and glowing finish
  • Does not dry up easily (the cushion primers I bought from Etude House are both dried up already. I only used them a few times and no more products come out even when I try to push the cushion hard)
  • Cute honey bee packaging
  • Sealed tight when it arrived which makes it hygienic (air cannot penetrate so you are sure the product you are getting are clean and brand new)
  • Lovely gold and white packaging
  • Medium coverage
  • Does not cake on my skin
  • Looks natural
  • A little on the grey side (though it matches my skin tone really well it does look a bit greyish)
  • Only available online (check out Althea Korea’s website)
  •  Product transfers on the cover
  • Wish it can provide full coverage so I don’t have to layer the product on my skin and so I don’t have to use concealer anymore

Overall, the W.Lab W-Honey Beam Cushion BB Cream is a great product and I definitely recommend it to people with the same skin type (combination to oily) and skin concerns (acne scars, oily and dull skin) as I do. It may look a bit greyish but it is hardly noticeable. It looks natural and does not cake when your skin starts to become really oily. It has decent coverage if you want to make your acne scars less noticeable. The W.Lab W-Honey Beam Cushion BB Cream now rivals the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream as my favorite BB Cream.
