If you read my posts before, you will find out that my focus in on Korean and Japanese skincare products. So let’s make some changes and talk about some makeups today. I don’t like to wear heavy makeups, therefore a BB cream or cushion foundation will be my favorite. It gives me dewy skin and the texture is lightweight. As you know, Korea is the starter of “cushion foundation” idea. Almost every famous Korean cosmetic brand has a cushion foundation. As one of the popular “cushion”, Hera has a good reputation. What’s my opinion about it?  Please read my Hera UV mist cushion review below.

Hera UV Mist Cushion Review

I heard about this Hera bb cushion from one of my best friends. She said that her wedding make-up artist recommended it. Hence, I decided to follow the professional advice and get it from a duty-free shop. As I have medium tone skin, So I choose C21.

Hera always changes their look depends on different themes(you can see the picture below). Mine is just the normal one. It comes with a refill in a purple box. The cushion itself is normal size and the powder puff is put on the top of foundation separately. The design is typical cushion foundation style and the refill is interchangeable. Yes, you can put it in the Sulwhasoo cushion foundation as well.

How to use Hera UV Mist Cushion

As this Hera UV mist cushion has as high as 50 PA+++ SPF coverage, I will ignore the sunscreen step if I work indoors. I will use it after my moisturizer. But, if I am going to do some outdoor activity, I will apply sunscreen before it. Remember to wait for 15 minutes until sunscreen is well absorbed.

If you just want a natural and fine skin, you can simply put a layer of this foundation, continue with lipstick and blusher. Then everything is done. If you want to use cushion foundation only, almost no one will find out that you are wearing makeups. The formula is sheer.

Besides, don’t forget to remove it by using make-up remover. It still belongs to the “foundation” camp.

I am combination skinned, my nose area is easy to become oily but my cheek is quite dry sometimes. Therefore I like the foundation which is moisturizing and can last for a long time.

Yes, this Hera UV mist cushion has a good hydrating effect which blends into my skin perfectly.The look is natural and helps me to get a brighter skin tone.

However, the foundation on my nose began to break up and become cakey after 5 hours. Hence, I decided to put some powder over it. On this occasion, it can last for 8 hours. Hence, it could meet my needs for work.Nevertheless, I will carry blotting papers if I have to go out all day long.

In addition, it can’t provide enough coverage for my acne or acne marks even though C21 belongs to the “coverage” series. I will use some concealer before this cushion foundation to get enough coverage.


  • good hydrating effect
  • natural look


  • not enough coverage
  • can’t last for a long time

All in all, this is my hera UV mist cushion review, I am almost run out of it. I like it because It is natural and moisturized. Even though it can’t last for a long time, I still insist on applying it in the workday.
