Living in Taiwan can be pretty dangerous. As soon as my paycheck comes in, cute little cosmetic stores like 86 Shop (86小舖官方) or S3 (小三美日平價美妝) lure me inside to check out the latest skin care and beauty products. Not cool.
A few weeks ago on one of my many “Just-browsing”-trips I discovered the Demeter X Moomin Pick-Me-Up Cushion Perfume in the scent Icelandic Aurora. I am a sucker for anything cushion. BB cushion, CC cushion, cushion blusher – you name it, I buy it. I believe I paid around 399 NT$ (about 11 EUR).
- cute packaging
- convenient for on-the-go and traveling
- fresh, amazing scent
- very little product
- perfume cushion dries up quickly
- wears off quickly
I really wanted to love this product so much. The Moomin packaging is so adorable and the scent is really fresh and invigorating. I love, love the scent. The little compact is so easy to carry around and perfect for traveling.
However, unfortunately there is so little product in the cushion sponge and it is very difficult to transfer any scent from the cushion to the puff onto your skin. Any perfume that gets on your skin wears off really quickly. I took this with me when I went back to Germany. My sister tried the product as well. And she mentioned that due to the drier climate, the perfume evaporates even quicker.
I will probably get the perfume in the bottle and maybe try to refill the cushion with it. For some people this might be too gimmicky but I still like the idea of carrying a light cushion with you when you travel especially when you travel by airplane.
Let me know what you think about this product or fragrances by Demeter in general.
