Innisfree - Mini K-Beauty Shopping Haul

So as soon as I decided to start posting shopping hauls, I started realizing that I did a little bit of shopping (whoops, wasn't I supposed to cut down?!)

This order is from Innisfree - they are a Korean beauty brand and this is their description:
"Innisfree, the first natural brand form Korea, is dediated to sharing the clean and pure energy of nature for healthy beauty.

Jeju, the home of the four energies of pure nature, is full of the honest and immaculate beauty that Innisfree wishes to share with you.

Innisfree is creating spaces where nature and skin can rest in the green energy of pure Jeju."

I love using natural brands when I can and have generally enjoyed the products I have used!

There has been a lot of hype lately about the use of make-up cushions - it is the new trend in k-beauty products! I have been intrigued especially for summer as they appear to give more natural coverage! I looked up reviews and the cushions from Innisfree were really highly reviewed - so I ordered one!!! 

Shipping is pretty quick (not free, but reasonably priced) with Innisfree and here is my order!!! 

Everything was well packaged - time to dig in!

Ampoule Intense Cushion SPF34/PA++ 15G in "Natural Beige" ~ $31.67 CAN. Long-lasting moisture winter-cushion that keeps your skin hydrated for a long period by restoring moisture to your skin 
1. Ampoule Intense Complex™ protects the skin barrier, leaving your skin moist for 24 hours. 
2. High refraction of the blooming oil evenly distributes light, giving your skin a gorgeous natural glow 
3. The excellent formula of the cushion absorbs quickly to the skin, allowing a buildable layer.

To use: Put an appropriate amount on the puff, apply lightly along the skin and gently dab onto your skin. Reapply and pat down, if needed.

I'm not sure why it is referred to as a winter cushion, as the reviews I read say it is great for summer as it is brightening and offers natural coverage!
Here is a swatch:

The first picture is it dabbed on my hand and the second one is it rubbed in! I haven't actually used this yet, but you can look forward to a review when I have used it a couple of times! 

As a bonus, Innisfree included a free item:

No Sebum Mineral Powder 5g ~ $9.24. Replacement powder for oil control paper making the skin soft and matte
1. Double sebum-control system controls secretion of sebum to keep the skin soft and fresh all day long.
2. Jeju natural mineral and mint ingredients control skin oil and moisture to keep the skin healthy.

To use: In the last stage of your daily skincare routine or makeup, use powder puff to gently apply onto entire face or sebum concentrated areas.

(I'm not actually sure if this is full size or a sample size, but either way it is a good size!) This is probably not something I would have purchased to myself, but the reviews sound really great! I am excited to try this!! 

So, just a little shopping with Innisfree - have you tried the cushion trend yet? Again, I will review this soon!
