Review: A’Pieu Air Fit Cushion

A’Pieu is a newly emerging korean brand well known for their affordable price range targeted at young teens. Cushion foundations and BB cushions under $20 are hard to find. This was part of my ibuybeauty haul and I purchased it in shade.21 for $7.90 USD

Claims and features:

  • Dewy and Sleek
  • Lightweight Texture
  • Suitable for sensitive skin with aloe vera and tea tree extract
  • Seamlessly blendable
  • Coverage with a thin layer

Initial impressions on application:

  • Easy and fast application – yay for cushions!
  • Somewhat cakey and I don’t think I put on a ‘thick’ layer either
  • Liquidy/watery and OILY (not sure why!!!) When I accidentally brushed a finger on my face, a fair bit of the product rubbed off
  • Made me look hella pale

Left side barefaced, applied foundation on the right


  • Smooth application
  • Fairly good lasting power
  • Contains SPF50 and PA +++
  • Moisturising (more suitable for dry skin)
  • Lightweight
  • Cute packaging
  • Covers redness
  • Nice scent


  • Oily
  • Liquid texture makes it easier to mess up the packaging
  • Not mattifying

A pro and a con is that it only requires gentle pressure for the product to transfer from the cushion to the puff and that’s why I think I applied a bit too much at first. It’s buildable but you’d look paler and paler for every layer you put on. Right after applying, I had to blot my face to take away the excess oil and paleness which turned out quite alright and I didn’t think additional powder was necessary. I’m pretty happy that it upholds its claims and whilst I needed to make it work for me, the lower price makes it forgivable.

Have you tried any A’Pieu products?
