- foundation made easy!Review by Jana
- Great Great Great!Review by Nanda
I decide to breakdown this review and talk about the points I really consider important.
1. Coverage: It does provide a sheer coverage and it's good for day time. I don't have a lot of blemishes to cover so it worked perfectly for me. I even added a second layer of the product because I wanted to see if I could build up coverage. The aswer?? Yes you can but still does not provide full coverage. The best part is that my skin didn't look cakey, which is a plus for me.
2. Better than a regular BB Cream? Could be depending on your skin type. I am a huge fan of BB creams but the Tension gives you a more natural look, not to mention the glow. While I was testing it my friends said: "You have wonderul skin!" In addition, it's super easy to apply!!
3. Does the Tension lasts ?? Yes, Yes, Yes!! It kept my skin moistured the whole time as well ( huge thing since I have dry skin). I still need to test in the summer to see how it goes though.
4. Worth to buy it?? Yes, for sure! If you are looking for a natural glowing even skin.I am also buying the other 2 versions to see what power they hold!

- Interesting ProductReview by desertcat
- Better Alternative to a BB Cream!Review by JUDY
My skin: I am DRY! I'm 26 years old, and I am a NC30 in Mac.
First impressions: This product is beautiful! The pretty light blue really draws your towards the product. The cushion itself is sleek and compact. LOVE how it looks. Once you open the product, it will review an average looking sponge applicator used for cushions. I appreciate that the applicator is a light skin color because it still looks "clean" even after use. I prefer this to the dark sponge applicators because they look so dirty. The foundation itself smells good, but definitely a very subtle clean smell. Not overpowering and very pleasant.
Application: Opening the cover, I was pleasantly surprised to see the cushion itself was very unique, unlike any other. Instead of your common sponge cushion, its looks like a tightly woven netting that allows product through the seams. You can tell the foundation in there is a whipped consistency and looks airy but not too liquidy. This cushion is incredibly unique and makes for a flawless application. I love how the product disburses onto the sponge. The cushion gives just the right amount of product and doesn't waste any.
I tried applying this product using three methods in the two weeks I tested it. I used the sponge that it came with, a beauty blender, and a foundation brush. I would say the sponge that it comes with works the best because the product gets soaked up too much by the other two. The sponge really helps the product absorb into the skin evenly and apply flawlessly.
Coverage: This product give a sheer to light coverage. It is ideal for those of you who have pretty good skin with minimal blemishes to cover, but you still want a little foundation to even you out. Your actual skin will peek through no matter how many layers of this foundation you use. It's not meant to have much coverage, and exists more for the effect than the coverage. The foundation is VERY DEWY and VERY GLOWY. It gives my skin a beautiful sheen and the finish reminds me of the dewy skin that Korean celebrities have in k-dramas. If you can imagine Mac Strobe Cream as a whipped light coverage foundation, this is the product.
Performance: My skin LOVES how it feels on the skin because its very moisturizing and doesn't irritate my dry patches. I'm a fan of the SPF benefits because I would ideally wear this foundation to the beach, to the gym, or on days where I want very minimal coverage. This foundation gives a solid 4 hours before dissolving with integrity. It kind of evaporates onto the skin after 4 hours, and you'll have to reapply at this time. After application, it never truly "sets" and kind of feels tacky or wet to the touch. It's a little annoying, so sometimes I will dust it with a sheer powder to make sure it doesn't move. I avoid this if possible since the powder really takes away from the glowing effect of this foundation. So I usually just do bronzer and let the foundation do its thing.
Overall thoughts: I truly enjoyed this product. I usually prefer medium to full coverage, but I liked having this as an option for my no-makeup makeup days. When I did wear it, I got a lot of compliments on how glowy, healthy, and youthful my skin looked. However, this particular formula leans on the cooler side of skin tones. It really washed me out as a NC30 with yellow undertones. I'm hoping the new colors they come out with will be a little more yellow/warmer tone for people like me.
Rating: I give this product a four out of five stars. I loved most of the features of this product, from the packaging itself, to the application, as well as the formula. I had to take off one star for two reasons: 1) the cool undertone was not suitable for warm tones skins, 2) I wish this product had a little bit more coverage to help me cover some of my blemishes. Had this product been the right color and had a little more coverage, I would have used this product every day. Still, if you have good skin and want a dewy finish, this is the product for you.

- Lighter than BB Cream perfect cover 23Review by Beeegee
- A must try!Review by Elcey
If you have oily/combination skin, you may need to set it with setting or finishing powder or your face might look a bit more shiny than you'd like (unless that's the look you're going for). Overall I give this product a thumbs up. (Posted on 4/7/2017)
- A welcome surprise! Review by Georgieyp
My only gripe so far is that the SPF is only 30, but that's pretty minor . this is a really great product, especially for someone like me, who doesn't generally wear any makeup, but does like to have a product like this to correct tone and smooth my complexion, when I need/want it!
I love it! (Posted on 4/7/2017)
- Nice texture but...Review by Angelina
- I recommend it! Review by Monica
I have an oily face with pretty visible pores so at first try I used it with a matte primer and it's perfect but it clings to dry skin so you have to exfoliate to achieve perfect coverage. Personally it kinda made my pores visible too if I don't use any primer. But overall i love it since it gives me perfect coverage without feeling heavy and it covers the darkspots and bags!!

- Excellent coverage and long lasingReview by Alycegoo
- Silky Sheer CoverageReview by MBEE
- Natural looking but provides coverage!Review by This is my cup of tea!
- hmm....Review by emmie
- Brighten and soften!Review by Jijae
It comes in a pretty case which is slightly wider than the missha signature essence cushion which you can see in the picture to compare! Both are No.23 but the tone up glow is lighter than the essence bb cushion. Both have a pinkish undertone but the tension cushion is a bit more ivory while the essence bb cushion is beige.
Coverage is definitely a sheer to medium. Has a floral scent which I do not mind and definitely has quite a bit of product! The mesh design evenly distributed the product so that you don't get too much on one side of the applicator puff. It leaves a glowy finish of course which you can always mattify with setting powder. I would say that normal to oil skin people definitely will need to set with this cushion. it looks really smooth and didn't stick to or accentuate my dry patches which I really enjoy! It can transfer a little bit too easily for comfort so try not to touch your face too much!
Overall this product leaves a smooth, dewy finish and feels very lightweight on the skin while evening out my skintone and covering my blemishes! Doesn't stick to fine lines and feels moisturizing enough for my combo skin. It lasts quite a while for me as I can go 6 hours before I need any touch ups around my nose. It stays together really well throughout the day and I'm probably enjoying this cushion more than the magic cushion and signature essence. I'm probably going to go for the original as I like a more natural finish rather than a glowy/dewy finish and I'd go with this during winter! (Posted on 4/3/2017)
- Tension Top Up Glow is very impressive and simple to useReview by Kathleen W.
I was given a free compact and I am happy to review the Tension Top Up Glow. It is nicer than I expected it to be. The compact is attractive and well designed. The product is in a section with a tight fit cover that opens to the side so you can access the product. This cover keeps it from drying out or leaking. There is a place for the sponge applicator on top of this cover and the compact lid keeps the sponge covered and clean.
If I wanted one word to describe it I would use "fresh". There is a slight scent which is light a clean. It's not overpowering or unpleasant. The product applies easily and you don't use a lot. This means you don't look like you are wearing a lot of thick goop on your face. You look like you but a bit smoother and more even toned. I loved that the shade really was fair as they promised. Often I can't find a shade for my light skin tone.
I will buy this again and maybe try one without the glow. Give it a try, I bet you will be impressed too! (Posted on 4/3/2017)
- Sheer coverage, but still looks greatReview by Kat
- I like it!Review by missrei
Extra side note, a year and a half ago, I could not have been confident with this amount of coverage; but exploring K-beauty has improved my skin so much! Time Revolution First Treatment Essence, Night Serum, and Super Aqua Sleeping Packs are highly recommended. Thanks Missha! (Posted on 3/31/2017)
