I never used a cushion foundation but had heard a lot about it especially from my Korean blogger friends & very recently Lancome had come up with the same. When I was asked to try Grid Solution UK CC Cushion Foundation there was no chance of declining the offer. I was eager to try this kind of foundation. I always love Korean products because they always come with something new. Who can forget their invention of BB cream and CC cream? Today I’m going to share this new experience with all of you.
What company says…
Grid solution is an exciting and revolutionary all in one cc cushion.
That does not require the use for foundation, primer or powder setting, grid solution provides all this in one application.

This formula fills in micro lines and ensures a smooth and even appearance. and the non-absorbing puff applicator cools and soothes the skin for a refreshing finish every time.
In the mirror of my own experience
Grid Solution UK CC Cushion Foundation comes in a black outer box with all information printed over it. The foundation is stored in a black round compact case with flip open lid. When you open the lid you find a mirror and an inner lid to protect the foundation more. You also find a fine quality sponge kept neatly over the inner lid. After lifting the inner lid, you will find a white soft cushion. The foundation formula is nicely secured beneath the cushion.You just need to press the sponge few times and then you can see the right amount of foundation over it.This is a cushion foundation.The packaging is completely luxurious and classy. I love its sponge and mirror especially during travelling both prove useful. No need to take out a seprate foundation brush for application.
Grid Solution UK CC Cushion Foundation comes in only one shade. The shade is quite close to my skin tone but in my opinion, the brand should come up with some more shades for other skin tones. However, they claim that this shade will suit all kinds of skin tones.
The applicator sponge makes the application so easy. The sponge doesn’t absorb the foundation and this thing makes it quite unique in itself. I apply the foundation with the applicator sponge on my face and then blend it well. I love how seamlessly it blends into the skin. It gives light to medium coverage and covers mild blemishes easily. By layering you can get a full coverage, it feels extremely light on the skin even after layering. I love the dewy finish it gives to my skin. I have mild blemishes on my face and this foundation covers them so well with a second layer. I don’t need to apply a concealer after second layer. The formula is hydrating and gives a smoother and even looking effect. It contains higher SPF so it gives a whitish cast to the skin while applying but becomes natural after blending. It sets into the powder finish and I don’t need to set it with a pressed powder (especially in winters). I really love the radiant and glowing effect that I get after applying it.
The Grid Cushion foundation has great lasting power. It stays almost whole day with out melting and getting shiny. My skin is dry and in winters I don’t need to set my foundation with powder but for oily skin ladies, they will need to set it with pressed powder. I have been using this foundation these day so can’t say how this faces the heat and sweat in summers but in my opinion it will work well in summer with a setting powder.
Beautiful and exclusive packaging
Very hygeinic and great for travelling
The non absorbent applicator sponge is fantastic for applying and blending the foundation
Feels very light-weight on skin

|I’m wearing the Grid Solution CC cushion foundation in this makeup look|
It available only one shade, very disappointing point of this product
Gives a whitish cast in the beginning due to higher SPF but goes away after blending
I’m glad with my first experience with a cushion foundation. Grid Solution UK CC Cushion Foundation is really impressive that gives a beautiful and even finish to the skin. It’s so easy to apply. I love the sponge applicator that makes the application very convenient. The foundation is so light in weight and gives a smoother radiant looking skin tone that I love. It is long lasting without a retouch. I would love to use this foundation again and again. The best part of this foundation is it’s very travel friendly. The hygeinic and classy packaging makes it more impressive. I would totally recommend it to my readers.
