Lalavesi Akma Cushion S.S. Natural Review

Lalavesi Akma Cushion S.S. Natural Review

Spring has arrived and summer is just days away. So I took out my Lalavesi Akma Cushion S.S. Natural! It was part of my Korean make up purchase back in January. I already reviewed the Lalavesi Akama Cushion F.W. Classic 2016 here.

I have been using Lalavesi Akma Cushion S.S. Natural in Y6 for 2 weeks now and I love the finish it gives me!

Lalavesi Akma Cushion S.S. Natural is suitable for oily skin where it gives a natural finish with low coverage. S.S. stands for special summer, but I like to interpret it as “Spring and Summer”. It is made with USA lime extract ( don’t ask what it does to the skin because I have no clue).

Funnily, S.S. is meant for oily skin, but while I have dry skins, my skin really likes the formula. I don’t see any dry patches. On the other hand, the F.W. is meant for dry skins but it accentuates my dry patches. This is a mystery to uncover. I believe Montreal winter is too harsh and drying so even though the F.W. is meant for dry skins, it is not meant for such a dry condition. With S.S., my skin looks flawless till the end of the day.

The coverage is low as it states, but I have very little troublesome skin areas. My issues are just color unevenness. The color in Y6 is a 100% match to my skintone. After application, I cannot tell I have foundation on. It is pretty amazing. It blends so well into my skin.

Unlike Lalavesi F.W. Classic 2016, I simply love Lalavesi S.S. Natural so much. I think the only problem would be the color if ever I become tan during summer.

  • Hi Zuuchini. Thank you for featuring my Lalavesi Akma Cushion Review on your blog!. Glad that the S.S formula works so well on your skin. Too bad it is cakey and dry for me 🙁 Great post!

    Im having a bit of trouble deciding what color to buy.. I was wondering if you could help me out a little. I have dry skin like you and am from Toronto so I think I’m going to take your advice and try the SS one 🙂 but Im not sure if I would be Y2 or Y6.. I’m just a bit lighter than Alaska in NARS, a bit lighter than B30 in YSL (I mix it with a lighter color), and #21 natural beige in Laneige BB cushion, and C21 in the older IOPE cushion. Thanks a lot in advance!!

    I just also realized SS comes in Y3 which i think would be perfect but I dont know if it makes a difference if I buy the SS 304 or normal?? Omg sorry for all the questions

      Hi Sally!

      I’m inclined to say that Y2 would suit you as #21 in Korean products is more or less the equivalent of #21. (I googled for laneigne BB cushion in 21 and it looks similar to Y2). And Y6 looks similar to Alaska in Nars. or buy both and mix it together 🙂
