YASSSReview by Tori
I literally will never go back to regular liquid foundations. This formula is perfect for buildabke coverage without looking cakey and it is easy to touch up through out the day. I cannot say enough how much I love this cushion.

Ps I am very fair with pink undertones and #21 fits me perfectly. (Posted on 6/21/2017)
Disappointed!!!Review by Rlee10
I am so disappointed with this product!
I read the reviews and even saw online tutorials using this but this was not what I expected at all!!!
Did these people get paid to do these nice reviews?! I remember they were giving away these for free for reviews.....
I was expecting great coverage but this is not any better than their other white packaging cushion pact!
And it is not long wearing at all!
I put on my sunglasses and it immediately came off where I had my subglassss on around my nose.
Because of the net(?) it also takes longer to apply since it leaves that net pattern on your face when you apply it.
It also made me look so unnatural and cakey.
I'm so disappointed by this product! I wish I could get a refund!!!!

Hi Rlee10,

We are so sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the performance of our Tension pact. While we did have a promotion in which we offered the chance to win a free Tension pact in exchange for an HONEST review, we did not offer nor have we ever offered compensation for positive reviews. We take our credibility with our customers very seriously and would never jeopardize that with falsified endorsements.

Please contact us at so we can further assist you.

Nice coverage!Review by Sg
I have tried the MIssha M Perfect Cover Bb cream and the Missha M Magic cushion. I've enjoyed both of them but not happy with the coverage. I usually have to use a concealer on the dark spots on my cheeks. This tension pact has nice coverage and it goes on smoother than a cushion. I have combination skin and I do have to set this lightly with a powder because it leaves a little stickiness to it on my skin. I also have sensitive skin and many bb creams, cushions and foundations with sunscreen give me a rash. So far, I have not had any rashes with this. The color shade is a little light, but I just use a bronzer and it works out great. (Posted on 5/23/2017)
Awesome covering!Review by Cathy
I got this as a sample, before it's release on the website, with one of my orders. I felt in love with it so I ordered a full sized product when it became available.
I have combinated skin to oily. It is a perfect cover as advertised, doesn't dry my skin. I don't like "heavy" make up, so for me, it's not for daily usage.
Recommend. (Posted on 5/20/2017)
Tension Pact made me a Missha Girl for life!!Review by Linden
I was selected directly by Missha as a product tester and received the Tension Pact free in exchange for my honest review. I was truthfully skeptical about this product's claims before I received it. I didn't think it could achieve the results I was expecting from a foundation promoted as full coverage in the formula that it is in. How wrong I was!! This was my first time actually trying anything from Missha's cosmetic or skin care line, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This product is AMAZING!!! The texture, the application, the coverage, the duration of wear, and overall experience during the past two weeks of use could not have been any better! The product is light, breathable, has an amazing scent, and lasts morning to night with very little to none touch up needed. I experienced zero irritation, it removed easily, and didn't cause any breakouts on my combination skin like other full coverage foundations I've used previously have. This Tension Pact is a game changer that has revolutionized the customary formulas that we are all used to such as powders and liquids. If Tension is any indication of future concepts we should come to expect from Missha, I for one can't wait to see what they'll think of next! SO HAPPY I was selected for this, and I will be a Missha Girl for life!!! (Posted on 4/12/2017)
Lovely finish, but not for me.Review by hmoates88
I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and chin with normal to dry cheeks. My skin is fairly sensitive and acne prone.

For the most part, the foundation is good but there are days when I have to wash my face as soon as I get home because my skin will be driving me crazy. I don't know what causes it but something doesn't like my skin. However, it's not an everyday thing. Just some days. Maybe my skin is more sensitive on some days? I don't believe it has caused any additional breakouts, but the irritation (?) it does cause is enough to prevent me from purchasing it.

The coverage is buildable from, sheer to medium, and it the color matches very well. Blending takes some time, but once applied it gives a lovely, dewy look. Since it's a compact, touch-ups are easy, which is great because this stuff transfers VERY EASILY. Especially oilier areas. I'd say it would be best for winter when it's less humid because I don't see it holding up well in the summer sun. (Posted on 4/10/2017)
Pretty good but could be betterReview by suz
I was selected to test the Perfect Cover tension pack. I was really excited, as I have been having issues with getting my makeup and foundation to stay on my face the entire day. I had high hopes for this, thinking it would do the trick. However, I was disappointed. I need to mention I have EXTREMELY oily skin that can't be controlled by anything that I've tried.

Longevity: YES! IT LASTS ALL DAY!!!! I can't find the perfect cleansing oil to get all my makeup off. After doing that and then my three step with another company, the cotton ball still has LOTS of makeup residue on it. Trust me, I could easily sweep my face with the cotton ball at least another time or two and still get residue off it. Usually the next am, I will have residue on the cotton ball too. I did try an experiment to see if I could get my makeup to last longer by doing a double foundation before the rest of my makeup. However, that was not a good idea. To prove how well the foundation lasts, I had a heck of a time getting the makeup off. I had so much left over from doing a double foundation. So yes, this DOES last!

COVERAGE: very good. However, for me, it didn't cover all my pores. It is supposed to also help the fine lines and wrinkles. For me, that didn't work. Instead, it looked a bit cakey and you could easily see the wrinkle, more than before putting on tension. I tried it again the next day with a slightly better result, but not the best. So for me, the wrinkle part didn't work as advertised. Also, it did not fully cover my pores. You could see them really good at times too. Even using the BB Boomer primer, it didn't help. So the perfect coverage wasn't "perfect" for me, but it was way better than other products I have tried.

VERDICT: it is a decent product. But my face has always been hard to keep makeup on the entire day. It's the powder more than anything. My T-zone is what soaks in right away and no matter what I do, I'm shiny. The tension pact didn't help with that. The shade #23 was too light. They need to make a #25, as I'm too light for #27. The product does settle during transport, so it can be really hard to get it evenly distributed on the puff at first. Also, don't be too surprised if foundation squirts over the edge of the pact. It happened to me. I think this product is very promising. However, it's not going to be for everyone. Would I use this again? Probably not. (Posted on 4/10/2017)
Great coverage Review by Nikki
This foundation has great coverage, I'd say medium to high coverage. I start with a light layer and then add more where I need more coverage (it's very buildable). I feel like this needs minimal powdering afterwards (it's pretty long lasting without it). It goes on very quickly by using the air puff supplied. My only issue is that I currently mix 21and 27, which is something I can't really do with a cushion, however if you can fit into a color without mixing, this is a great product! (Posted on 4/10/2017)
New favorite!Review by SavanahF
I was so excited to review the new Tension pact, since I am an avid collector of Korean Cushions. My favorite is the Magic Cushion, so I really was interested in seeing how a the Tension pact, with netting instead of cushion, would compare. I have two of the Tension blusher pacts, and absolutely love them. The packaging is cute and I was surprised with how much I loved the soft netting. The foundation version of this Tension pact is also great.

The mesh netting perfectly allows for the puff to pick up the right amount of product; one press is enough for half the face. I was given the Perfect Cover in the lightest shade #21, and it blended very nicely into my pale, slightly yellow-toned skin. The Perfect Cover is a blend of both foundation and concealer, which is exactly what my acne-scarred skin needed. The product covered up my scars very nicely, and layered over my skin smoothly, making my scars seem invisible. It feels like a second skin. Once the product dries and adheres to the skin, there is no transfer from my face to my finger. The product also did not crease or cling to the grooves around my nose, as many products do. The problem of dry patches magically appearing after applying foundation also did not occur, which was a pleasant surprise. The foundation leaves a satin finish, which I like the most as it highlights the areas of the face that the light hits. It lasted quite a long time. and never felt oily as time went by.

As a K-beauty enthusiast, I am very pleasantly surprised with how great of a product this is. I had heard bad things about other companies trying mesh netting for foundation before, but MISSHA really pulled this one off. I encourage other K-Beauty lovers to try it out, and I am hoping to test out the other two products as well. (Posted on 4/10/2017)
Surprisingly ImpressedReview by kewlhwhip
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to be impressed by a foundation, especially one in this form. But alas, I was wrong. First of all, the packaging is gorgeous. It’s so feminine, not too bulky, and a nice champagne color. The sponge is incredibly soft and unlike and other sponge I have ever used. I was very impressed with how smooth it went on the skin as well. The design and technology that went into creating this unique way of using makeup with the mesh barrier is really neat and totally helps with Not making a mess. What I love about this is that you can bring it on the go just like a compact powder. Honestly though I didn’t need to touch up until twelve hours after use. The coverage isn’t too thick so it doesn’t accentuate wrinkles, but it does do the job with leaving a smooth finish on the skin. The ONLY con I have for this is that me personally, I am not a big fan of scented foundations. It has a very strong fragrance to it, which I could do without. I have gotten used to it though. Thank you so much for letting me try this compact foundation. I will defiantly look into more of your products, as this was a true delight. (Posted on 4/10/2017)
Great Coverage and TextureReview by meegracee
I was so pleasantly surprised by the performance of Missha's new Perfect Cover Original Tension Pact. I picked up the shade 23 and it was a good match for my skintone (ref: NC25 in MAC) - just the right shade to give a brightening feel to the skin but also not in an unnatural way. The thing that surprised me most about this pact was how it performed in terms of coverage. Unlike other cushion foundations where coverage is mostly sheer, this product provided full-coverage overall to the point where I was able to skip concealer on most days. I have tried numerous brands of cusion foundations including HERA, IOPE, and Lalaveshi but in terms of coverage, Missha was definitely the top performer. I also did appreciate that the product was not drying despite the full-coverage functionality. The finish is a nice semi-matte texture that lasts throughout the day when set with a light dusting of powder. I would highly recommend! (Posted on 4/10/2017)
I love itReview by Christina
I am a 54-year-old Asian woman with widespread melasma on either cheek. My highest priority is to cover those highly pigmented areas, as opposed to wrinkles. I tried almost every foundation and color correctors in the market. Recently I heard about the hype of Missha's Tension Pact in Korea and have been waiting for its arrival in the US. Finally, I tried it and my verdict? I am sold and here is why:

1. Coverage
As I said above, fuller coverage is my concern so I chose Perfect Cover #23. I took 3 photos here. For a fair comparison, I sat in the same spot with the same lighting all at the same time. The first photo shows me right after putting on just moisturizer. The second one shows me after putting on only Missha Perfect Cover #23. The third one shows me after putting on Elta MD sunblock and Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover (Cream Vanilla) foundation in a blue tube. Since Estee Lauder foundation has only SPF 15, I wanted to put on Elta MD sunblock lotion as well, while Missha Tension Pact has SPF 37 so I skipped an additional sunblock. It is obvious that Missha Tension Pact Perfect Cover has the best coverage. And it feels very light and also takes much shorter time in putting on makeup.

2. Dryness
Estee Lauder Maximum Cover foundation tends to be dry so I often add a couple of drops of facial oil. On the other hand, Missha Tension Pact doesn't feel cakey or crease even over time. Several hours after the makeup using the Tension Pact, the wrinkles in the areas around my eyes are not that noticeable compared to when the Estee Lauder foundation was put on. I feel still moisturized, which is another plus.

3. Lasting Effect
Tension Pact lasts long enough so I don't need to correct my makeup in the afternoon. One light tap is good enough to cover the whole face in the morning and that is it. No more in the afternoon until I remove my makeup in the evening.

4. Color
I chose #23 because my color tone is warm and a bit yellowish. It was quite bright and comparable to the color Cream Vanilla of Estee Lauder.

All in all, I am very satisfied and strongly recommend it to my friends. (Posted on 4/9/2017)
Perfect trendsetter!!Review by Hoa Nguyen
My impression with Missha Tension Pact is quite different from what I have had with the cushion. Both products are great in its own way, but if you want a foundation that offers exceptional concealment and goes a long way, the Tension Pact is definitely the one to go to. Missha has always been one of the trendsetters with new makeup products and trends and it doesn't fall short of its reputation with this year's Missha Tension Pact. At first glance, the packaging of Tension is not much different from that of the Cushion; however, inside Tension Pact is a tray of thick creamy foundation covered by elastic mesh screen beautifully designed to help spreading the foundation evenly. The tension itself has a thick, creamy texture that enhances grip and coverage on the skin, giving long lasting color foundation. Another thing that I love about this product is, if conventional foundation creams need to have tools such as brushes or canopies to strike on the skin, the tension grid design helps to distribute the cream evenly. That is why anyone can become a makeup expert with Tension. I also noticed that the foam that goes with this product is thinner than the normal sponge, which saves a lot of foundation. The thick and soft fabric helps to provide a thin and even surface on the face with better grip. The first time using tension pact I was a bit surprised because I thought like cushion, I pressed a bit strong, which made the mesh hollowed down slightly. I then realized that you should initially press lightly, as you keeps using it, the mesh will automatically decay gradually. Also, when pressed down, the cushion is taken up very little and unevenly distributed while the tension is the opposite, evenly distributed. In addition, the layer clings pretty well, all day long in the office my skin is still smooth with light glow, not too glossy! Usually the cushion is very shiny so I usually add more powder but when using Missha The Original Tension Pact I do not need to add powder anymore, I love this layer. A 2-fold coverage offered by this foundation can cover wrinkles, breakouts or uneven bumps, beautifully defying skin. Last but not least, I read online that the product also contains natural moisturizing ingredients, protecting the moisture of the skin and keeping the color lasting for hours. All in all, this product really provides flawless skin with remarkable concealment with lightweight foundation. The only thing I would recommend is more information on the package regarding ingredients, etc. I absolutely love the package, it doesn't provide much info. Otherwise, great product!

Can I get your A-TENSION!!!Review by NancyH.
The Tension Pact in Perfect cover comes in a lightweight beige colored compact that looks just like any other cushion foundation but it blew me away once I peeled off the sticker. This is a NET foundation with none of that liquid soaked sponge that we are all used to seeing. It contains 14g of Missha’s rich cream based foundation that is sealed and filtered with its stretchy dense mesh- net. There are four types of Tension pact to meet your preference (coverage, moisture or glow) with mine intended for more coverage. The shade I received was No. 23 with yellow beige undertone that was perfect for my light medium skin. I have hard time matching the right shade in Korean foundations due to being too light but this was close match to my Asian skin color, as it was more of a natural beige.

To use the Tension, I followed the instructions on the back and carefully pressed the puff into the mesh to take the amount I need. To avoid the cream from spilling on the edges, I pressed it gradually into the foundation. With only a single press, the puff beautifully grabbed an ample amount of cream evenly through the net like a perfect silkscreen print. I do not usually praise about a puff but I am highly impressed with this one. Their amazing puff is designed to absorb 50% less yet picks up twice the amount of product. The puff picks up just the right amount of its super rich and highly pigmented foundation. So a single pat gave me the most even full coverage that I have ever gotten with a single application. It literally adhered to my skin like a stamp which makes it easy to blend, spread and layer perfectly. The puff is a very good quality with soft, silky texture that gives supple smooth touch on my skin. The puff is large enough to pick up plenty of high pigmented cream to better saturate and cover to the skin.

I love that Tension is filled with skin beneficial ingredients like Ceramide, Hyaluronic Acid, Triglyceride, and Trehalose to make sure your skin stay moisturized and protected. I look for these skin essential ingredients in all of my beauty products because they are targeted to support those with skin concerns (wrinkles, large pores, dryness,et.). Hyaluronic acid is extremely important because it can smooth lines to keep our skin firm and plump. The Perfect Cover not only gave me great coverage but felt like it treated my skin to be more moisturized and dewy while wearing it.

Tension has a medium UV protection of SPF 37 PA++ so this is great if for everyday use! For additional UV protection, I layered it with a higher SPF sunscreen especially if I was spending time outdoor. No touch up was necessary as I used a finishing powder on top to maintain my look so my skin never felt greasy or lacked moisture but helped retain hydration all day. It also adapted well to climate changes whether it was cold and dry or hot and raining, it never melted and lasted almost twelve hours! That's a record for me!

Overall the Tension pact exceeded my expectations with its high performance in a compact foundation category. It is easy to use with its smart performing puff that gives tight adherence, and a highly pigmented rich cream that gives long lasting even coverage that contains full of healthy skin ingredients to meet your skin concerns. Not to mention its affordable price of $22 that is easily accessible to purchase through Missha's website. It is definitely worth checking it out whether you are curious about this product or your first time using net foundation. (Posted on 4/9/2017)
Loved it! Recommend!!!Review by helen
I received the Original Tension Pact to test for free and I loved it! It was much easier to apply compared to BB cream and it made my skin look naturally flawless. I tried the tension pact with and without a primer and I definitely recommend using a primer beforehand. The coverage was really good compared to other cushions I have used. I was surprised it even covered freckles really well, which the M Perfect Cover BB cream could not cover. It was very long-lasting and maybe because of this, it was more difficult to wash off compared to other BB creams/BB cushions that I have used. I have combination skin and it looked perfect in dry and oily areas even hours after I had it on. It was very moisturizing and did not make my dry areas look patchy. I also loved how it could be applied so evenly to my face, could be layered for more coverage, and gave a slightly dewy finish. The design of the tension pact case was very nice and similar to a cushion but slightly slimmer. I tried #21, which was my usual color, but it was a little bit lighter than what I expected. Maybe I will go with #23 next time when I try the other Missha tension pacts. Overall, it is a good product and I do recommend it especially for those who are looking for a long-lasting, good coverage tension pact. (Posted on 4/9/2017)
Definitely a game changer!Review by Erika
I expected the Tension Pact to be similar to the other cushion compact foundations, but it really is different!
~ The formulation is much thicker, and I could tell when I first pat the product on my skin that it has much higher coverage than cushion compacts.
~ I would say that this foundation has medium coverage with one layer, and you can build it up to full coverage, but it may feel heavy on your skin if you layered enough for full coverage.
~ Usually with cushion compacts, I would have to push kind of hard on the cushion to get the product, but with the tension net design, a light touch gets you plenty of product. I'm curious as to if you can get to the product through the tension netting when it's almost empty, but I would have to use it up before I find that out.
~ The packaging is nice and chic. The compact is sturdy and similar in design to other cushion compacts. The holographic coloring on the top of the compact is pretty :)
~ The sheen of the Perfect Cover is not matte and not dewy, so about a satin finish. I have dry patches with a mildly oily T-zone. The dry patches were accentuated so I would recommend using a moisturizing primer first if you have dry skin. I think people with normal to oily skin would like this product, but may want to set it with powder.
~ I work 12-16 hour days, and I agree with the description that this product is long lasting and lasts all day.
~ Having sun protection in the product is always a plus for me! I love that all the versions have SPF 30 or more.
~ I received the color #21, and I felt like it may be slightly darker than I expected it to be comparing it to other products of color # 21
I definitely am planning to and excited about trying the other versions of the Tension Pacts in the future !!! (Posted on 4/9/2017)
Not suitable for oily skinReview by Thao Nguyen
I have extremely oily skin with redness. I also live in Florida where it's hot and humid. I like the coverage of the Tension Pact but my skin still got oily after 4-5 hours even when I use a primer and setting powder. I still prefer the Perfect Cover BB cushion more since that one keeps me shine free longer. I use No. 23 in my bb creams and cushion compacts. (Posted on 4/8/2017)
Literally in love with this productReview by Cayleigh
I was fortunate enough to have been able to receive the Tension for free in the recent event, and I am SO GLAD I did. I received the Perfect Cover in shade #21, and could not be happier with it.

Let it be said that I have oily, acne-prone skin with lots of redness, and the assortment of acne treatments I use make my skin very, very sensitive to the sun. As a result, wearing foundation with a high SPF is an absolute must for me. I've been using Missha products for a while now, but putting on BB cream every morning was too labor intensive and time consuming to me, and I had difficultly getting good, even coverage with the BB cushion. When I saw the Tension it looked like everything I had been looking for—quick, easy, good for my skin, even, and well covering. I actually had very high expectations for it, which is why I'm surprised it lived up to every one of them.

Fair warning that the product can shift around in travel, and the first time I used it I didn't prime it properly out of the box and it nearly exploded on me. However, every time after that it's been just fine, and I'll be careful upon my first use next time I run out and rebuy.

The Tension really does have very even application; it's smooth, easy to blend, and can even go in all those little crevices around your nose fairly easily (although I do use a brush to help that along). But even better, its COVERAGE and lasting power is absolutely phenomenal. The first time I put it on I was genuinely shocked by how good my face looked. I tend to dislike heavy foundation—sometimes I don't even wear it at all—just because I like a natural look. But the Tension looks totally natural while somehow also managing to make your face look smooth, even, and flawless. I've never felt like it was too much OR too little. It really just makes you look good.

It also lasts the whole day. I recently used my Tension as my foundation to my senior prom (which should show you how much faith I have in it, lol) and even after an entire day of taking pictures, going to fancy dinners, and literally dancing the night away, I got home and was shocked at how much coverage my face still had. It does fade a little, of course, but it lasts so much longer than any other face makeup or creams I have ever used.

As far as the finish, it is a bit dewey, which is something that I generally dislike. However, I have a matte finishing powder that I put over it and the shine goes completely away. If the dewey look in something you're into it will be great, and if not, it's easily avoidable.

Overall, I don't think I've ever been quite so impressed with any makeup than I have with Missha's Tension. I don't want this review to sound fake or overly appealing—I am aware that it sounds fishy considering I received it for free—but I genuinely, truly cannot think of anything I dislike about it. I think I've found a new holy grail. (Posted on 4/8/2017)
Not quite perfect cover, but pretty goodReview by Tlinks mom
I tested this tension pact in #23 as a tester. My requirements were a perfect color match, long wearing, blurring of fine lines, complete coverage of hyperpigmentation and sun spots, non-drying, easy application and natural finish. This is a pretty high standard to live up to, but Missha was attempting to create the perfect foundation.

So, how did they do? Well...they are close. Here's what I like: Beautiful finish and color match. Finish is a satin matte on me and looks really natural when wearing. I actually recived a compliment from someone who said my skin looked more radiant than usual. I tested this with and without primer, with different primers, with and without setting spray, as well as on cool days and warm days. It lasted reliably anywhere from 7-10 hours without fading. Bravo! For reference I have combination with dry cheeks and oily t-zone. I also loved that this did not rub off or transfer. The ease of application was superb -- one pat covered my whole face. Just be careful not to press too hard on the pack or it can get messy. That may not be a big deal for some, but will send my OCD into overdrive if I'm not careful. This foundation blurred my fine lines nicely without settling into the lines as the day wore on. It really did look almost as good as it did at the end of the day as when I put it on first thing in the morning.

So what are the cons then, you ask. It wasn't perfect cover. Medium coverage and slightly buildable, but not full coverage. I could still detect some hyperpigmentation and sun spots. I get slightly better coverage with the regular M Perfect Cover BB cushion, which is almost full coverage on me. That is really the only thing that left me wanting and leaves me on the fence about this foundation. The application is better than the BB cushion and it looks great on, I just wish it covered a little more. I love the Missha Cho Bo Yang bb cream for coverage, but not application. I love the M Perfect Cover cushion for coverage, but am not quite sold on the application either. I love the look of the tension pack and application and finish, I wish it was just slightly better coverage like the Cho Bo Yang. Now put that foundation in a tension pack format and you may very well have the absolute perfect foundation.

Final thoughts: I will likely purchase this again when it runs out because of the application and the fact that it is a very good everyday/weekend foundation. However, I will continue to use the Cho Bo Yang or cream foundation from a different company for those special occasions when I want the perfect coverage and am content to be bothered with a slightly different/more troublesome application method. From someone who has used some very high end cushions and foundations this is a winner and is certainly worth a repurchase. (Posted on 4/7/2017)
Natural Summer Goddess VibesReview by Fernst
My skin type is dehydrated oily, which basically means I'm extremely dry while being extremely oily (It's not fun). That being said, I liked the tension pact overall but there were a few things that were brought to my attention when I used it. While being moisturizing, the tension pact did cling onto some dry patches I had, due to my post winter skin. But when I exfoliated properly and prepped my skin properly, my skin looked REALLY good. The tension pact gives the skin a glow, but not an unnatural one, it looks like you're glowing from inside. Also, another thing that I wanted to point out was that I noticed when I applied the tension pact and moved on to doing my other face and eye makeup, it tended to rub off slightly. So I recommend using a really good setting powder right after applying it to the face. And the last thing I wanted to add was that the pact also clung onto my pores. But, to be fair, I wasn't using any pore primer, which I usually use anyways with any foundation (If you zoom into the picture I attached, you can see my accentuated pores on my nose and cheek). But after using my usual pore primer, the foundation looked flawless. So, just a word of advice for those who do have large pores :) Other than that, I really liked the Missha Tension Pact. I think I will get alot of use out of it this summer, especially since it's so lightweight, and really is high coverage! In the photo I attached of myself, I'm not wearing any concealer, which is amazing since I have some hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, but it covered it all. Also, the smell is so pleasant. I appreciate that so much since my current foundation has a really unpleasant chemical smell. To end the review, I'd just like to say that I'm so glad I was able to try out the tension pact, because aside from some of the misses I noticed, I think it really brings out your inner goddess glow :) (Posted on 4/5/2017)
