- Tension Pact made me a Missha Girl for life!!Review by Linden
- Lovely finish, but not for me.Review by hmoates88
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
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
- New favorite!Review by SavanahF
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
- Great Coverage and TextureReview by meegracee
- I love itReview by Christina
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.
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.
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 email@example.com
- Can I get your A-TENSION!!!Review by NancyH.
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
- Definitely a game changer!Review by Erika
~ 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
- Literally in love with this productReview by Cayleigh
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
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
- Great Coverage, But Heavy FeelReview by Ella
- Not bad, not greatReview by Virginia
This is a pretty thick foundation. I have never used a tension pact, so first time users, press lightly because a lot will come out!!! So first time, I wound up using a lot and it was cakey. Second time, I used a nice thin layer and another second light layer around my cheeks which has the sun spots. I would say it is medium coverage cause you can still see them and my dark circles under my eyes are still very visible. I also used the Missha cashmere powder around my nostrils to control any oil which helped. I do like the finish of it after it sets - semi-matte. I think it does oxidize a little but not too much. If I do use powder on my whole face, it does start to feel a little dry. I would say that it lasts about 6-8 hours before you can start to see the wrinkles under my eyes, but the rest of my face is still good and that's just with the makeup alone - no powder or primer. Honestly, the longer I wore it, the better it looked (except around the eyes).
This is a decent foundation. It is better than some others I have used that are much more expensive. I love the tension pact design, much better than just a cushion. And the case itself is pretty. Would I buy it again, maybe not so much as I am still searching for my holy grail bb cushion. Although, not related to this product, their perfect cover bb cream and boomer together are a dynamic combo! Wish that came in a cushion/tension pact! (Posted on 4/5/2017)
