Hello, today I’ll be reviewing the NAKEUP Face’s One Night Cushion. They have previously launched two other cushions and this is their newest addition to their makeup line. Jolse was recruiting reviewers for this cushion and I got really excited when I found out I was chosen as a reveiwer together with other 39 participants. I have never tried any of NAKEUP products before but am interested in their concept. Jolse did not pay me to write this review so all comments are based on my impressions and honest opinions.
About the Brand
The brand came up with an equation for their motto.
MAKE UP FACE + NO MAKE UP= NAKEUP FACE
“It is a compound word of glamorous visuals that do not be hidden”– as from NAKEUP Face website.
So their whole concept is about having that natural-finished look and being confident in your naked face even though you are using makeup. It is sort of like My Skin/ Face/ Lips But Better concept. They first launched their skincare line in 2014 and has developed more products including makeup since then.
Their promise to customers:
- present products that show incredible efficacy at minimum cost.
- use only premium ingredients and no harmful ingredients.
- all of their products are free from animal testing.

- Do not use on broken skin.
- Keep out of the reach of children.
- Store away from direct sunlight.
Pretty sparkling rose gold square case to add into your vanity. It is quite bulky like the COSRX cushion so some people might not find it travel friendly. It comes with a mirror and a puff. There is no extra refill but you can buy its refill separately.
There are two shades available, #01 Ivory Nude and #02 Beige Nude. #01 is slightly light for my darker skin tone due to the hot weather here in Malaysia but it is still wearable. It has a slight pink nude undertone rather than a yellow undertone.
Light to medium
The hint of sweet herbal scent reminds me of Belif Aqua Bomb!
I put this product on after applying my skincare and sunscreen. First impression was the cooling effect and it is very moisturising. It was easy to blend and control the amount of product on my face as I apply and it definitely gives more of a dewy look. I did not set it with any powder as I wanted to test its longevity. Coverage was pretty good as it covered most of my blemishes. I went out to run some errands and got home after 5 hours later, so here is the before and after shots.
While wearing this product in a humid weather, setting this product with powder is a must. The coverage has faded quite a bit as I can see some of my blemishes and the redness around my nose area. I also noticed that some of the product would transfer to my fingers when I touched my face accidentally. So, you might need touch ups with this product. Other than that, it is a very moisturising product without giving you that heavy heeling. Plus, I am happy that my skin did not break out after using this.
Update: I tried setting this cushion with powder on the next day and it felt better and lasted longer 🙂
My overall view
Pros: Same as the COSRX cushion, I love this cushion for its blemish control ingredients. I just love the skincare-and-makeup-in-one concept nowadays as it makes me feel guilt free to apply this for long hours. However, I would not suggest and do not think I would go to bed without removing it.
Cons: Not sure if you realised, there is no SPF in this product. Although this product has titanium dioxide that acts as a sunscreen, according to the company, it might or might not enough to help with sun protection due to its low percentage. They suggest to use other sun protection products with it.
Would I recommend? Yes. I rate this 4/5.
Suitable for dry, sensitive, troubled skin and also for those who like dewy-finished look.
Would I repurchase? Maybe. I think the fact it does not have SPF is a bummer. Although I always wear sunscreen before any foundation, I have other cushion that is lightweight and contains SPF. I might repurchase for its packaging and moisturising effect!
