There’s a new K-Beauty brand in town — Barenbliss, co-founded by Korean makeup artist Jina Kim. Jina Kim has been in the beauty industry for more than a decade, working with various international fashion magazines and brands including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Shu Uemura, PUMA, and Anna Sui. The makeup artist herself has also worked with many popular Korean celebrities including SISTAR, T-ARA, and Red Velvet.
I got a few Barenbliss makeup products to test drive. For today though, I’ll be trying the Barenbliss True Beauty Inside Cushion (₱899).
The Barenbliss True Beauty Inside Cushion comes in three (3) shades: #01 Light Petal Shower, #02 Medium Blossom Bud, #03 Beige Summer Nectar. I had to pick using a swatch photo so I chose #02.
The Barenbliss True Beauty Inside Cushion has SPF45 PA+++ so it’s great for daily use. It also gives a 24H flawless matte finish that doesn’t cake or oil up. It’s infused with 5 Korean flowers (Hibiscus, Magnolia, Chamomile, Camellia, and Calendula) for youthful and glowing skin. The product has a light floral scent and comes with a premium soft puff for application.
This is #02 Medium Blossom Bud when swatched on my pulse point. It seems a tad dark for me, next time I’ll go with #01.
I tried applying it to my bare face (no primer or anything prior) and I was surprised at how lightweight it felt. It dries quickly as well. I tried pressing a facial tissue onto my face and it didn’t transfer… so I’m inclined to think that this is mask-friendly. It’s matte too, so it’s perfect for oily skin. However, it seemed to “darken” my face, but I attribute this to the shade I picked so I should go for something lighter next time.
Barenbliss is a promising brand with reasonable price points. It’s readily available on Shopee and Lazada via Barenbliss official stores.
