My Perfect Find: J.cat Beauty Cushion Compact Foundation

Hello there! How is everyone doing? I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! Have you gotten your shopping done? I pretty much have mine done, but I have a couple of loose ends to tie up. In today’s post, I am going to be talking about a new favorite of mine from J.cat Beauty. J.cat Beauty is an indie brand, though they’re becoming more popular. You can find J.cat products on their website or some select items on the Ulta website. I first discovered J.cat through Ipsy, which is a monthly beauty subscription. J.cat Beauty has grown and added more products since I’ve been ordering from them. They’re a cruelty-free brand as well, and their products are reasonably priced.

“ALL IN ONE ONE-STEP [SKINCARE + MAKEUP]” – J.cat Beauty website

This foundation is currently only available on the J.cat Beauty website. I had been wanting to order this foundation for quite a while, but my shade was out of stock. The shade I have is “CCC101 Porcelain,” which is the lightest shade. I usually wear the lightest shade in most  foundations. This foundation also comes in 7 other shades. They have swatches of all the shades on their website, and very detailed information, I’m pretty impressed!

“What it does?

Daily Sun Exposure 45+ Protector
*Flawless Natural Coverage
*Boost&Lock In Hydration
*Weightless Texture & Easy To Touch Up Makeup”

The packaging is a black compact that reminds me of a hockey puck. It has a silver design and lettering on the front, and other detailed information on the back. When you open it up, it has a pretty nice mirror, and it comes with a flat black sponge-like puff for application…

When you lift up the sponge, underneath there is a cap that opens up containing a cushion with the good stuff…

It is important to keep the top securely closed when not in use, so that it doesn’t dry out…I’m assuming. It’s really easy to use. All you do it press your puff down on the cushion and it picks up the foundation. Then you use your puff to apply it to your face using a tapping motion. It blends evenly and easily, and I love the coverage! The coverage is anywhere from medium to high. You can layer it and it builds up very nicely. I usually do about 2 layers, and it really is weightless on the skin. It has a natural finish; which I really like, and it seems like it has a subtle, dewy type of finish. I have a ‘normal’ type of skin, with a couple of dry patches. This foundation is supposed to be good for all skin types. I feel like the Porcelain shade is a prefect match for my skin tone. I find that this foundation is lasting on my skin, and if you do need to do a quick touch-up throughout the day; the compact fits nicely in your purse. I think this would be great for those of you that are always on the go.

The picture above, is a picture of the ingredients and information on the box it comes in. On the other sides of the box, there are also instructions and details about the compact as well. They also give you a great tip, you can fold the puff in half to apply in smaller areas; such as the corner of your eyes or around the nose. I purchased this compact for $17.99, which is not bad at all for the quality. When you run out, you can simply order a refill for $12.99. I will definitely be repurchasing a refill when the time comes. At this time, J.cat Beauty only ships within the U.S and Canada.

  1. I’ve never heard of J Cat Beauty but this foundation looks lovely on you! I’m intrigued by cushion foundations, I wonder how long they take before they dry out and if you can wash the sponge they come with etc.

    1. Thank you so much! ❤ Well I guess I will find out lol. I will be sure to let you know. I had never tried a cushion #foundationreview either. I love this one and it’s been great for my skin with the cold and dry weather. I’m sure you can wash the puff that you dip into it.

  2. I’ve got porcelain skin too, but wonder if this runs more yellow or pink? The price for the initial cushion and the refills is astonishing. Also, how long-lasting did you find it to be?

    1. I feel like it’s pretty neutral actually. When you look at the cushion, you think oh wow that looks dark, but when you put on, it’s completely different! The price is a bit more, but that’s how it is for most cushion foundations unfortunately. I thought it lasted quite a long time! I was really impressed. 🙂
