Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Foundation in Buff Beige: Review, Price and FOTD

 I remember the time when I had just one foundation and even that used to expire before hitting bottom. Ignorance was bliss and I didn't care much how closely the foundation matched me. All I was concerned about was that the foundation comes in three shades and generally the medium shade matches me fine. So even if that 'more ignorant than me' sales girl at the store tries to shove the lightest shade down my throat, I've to try to resist and buy medium.. 
Lesser options, easier life!!
Flash forward to 2019..... Tons of stuff sitting in stash and I know exactly what to mix with what to get my desired shade, coverage and finish.. Complicated much but that's what knowledge does.
Having tried liquid, cream, gel and powder foundations, what's left was the cushion foundations. Now before I begin with the review, let me tell you it's a whole gimmick where much little product is offered to you at much higher price in the name of cushion foundations.
Let's get started with the review:
 Price/Quantity: ₹899/15mg

Ingredients:

Packaging:
Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Foundation with SPF 15 comes in a round cute plastic case. Inside the case, sits a sponge filled with foundation and below it in a different compartment there is a puff to apply it. The shade on the case packaging denotes the actual foundation shade. The case click locks firmly and is superb for traveling with.

Shade: Buff Beige 119A

Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Foundation was launched in 4 different shades in India. For reference, I'm NC30 in MAC and the shade Buff Beige is a close match to me. It is a medium warm shade with yellow undertones. Now when a product from a drugstore brand is a little on the higher spectrum of price, it is expected to atleast give a better shade range to its customer base. 899 bucks for a total of four shade option isn't justified at all.

Finish/Coverage/Longevity
 Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Foundation has a very light weight formula. It applies smoothly and leaves a satin/dewy finish that my dry skin totally loves. Surprisingly it makes the skin look primed even without using a primer.
It gives a medium coverage at first application but it is buildable. In any case,I don't find it to be a full coverage foundation.
I wore this foundation for a good 9 hours to test and I could see the shine on my t-zone within 5 hours of the wear...this given the fact that I have a dry skin. So maybe you can skip it if you have an oily skin or make pressed powder your best friend.

My 2cents:
 Firstly,with plethora of options of the foundation formula from cream to liquid to gel and sprays to finally stick and cushion foundations, I feel most comfortable with liquid foundations.
Secondly, I feel a bit cheated for my value of money in this cushion foundation since it offers much little product for the price paid.
Thirdly, I feel the shade range needs a quick revamp and expansion.
Fourthly, although my dry skin really loves the formula and finish of this foundation, I have the habit of mixing different foundations for the desired shade/longevity/finish which isn't really convenient with this product.

I like the fact that it has SPF 15 but again SPF15 isn't enough to stop sunburns, you will still need a sunblock underneath if damage to skin due to sun exposure is your concern.

In the FOTDs above, I've tried to keep everything muted so that the foundation can show up and doesn't get lost in the eye makeup or bright lips.

All in all, it's a foundation that gives medium coverage and dewy glow to the skin and it would work fine for the dry/normal even combination skinned beauties provided you find a GOOD shade match.

Hope the review helps you. Lemme know your thoughts if you've given it a try already!!
