The Package

No doubt that Laneige has innovative technologies for both product(content) and packaging – Layering Lip bar(dual lip color), Neo Cushion (spinning method to change a refill) & Ultimate Velvet Lipstick (pop-out lip case) which is new-released a few weeks ago, and this Neo Foundation has a magnetic cap that can also be used as a brush holder.



The Formula

• A lightweight, micro texture-correcting powder that is applied smoothly and thinly to create even complexion without getting cakey and comfort skin
• A combination of quick-setting oil & light oil deliver a silky smooth, healthy glow finish
• Infused with Panthenol and microbiome (Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate) to soothe skin and promote skin turnover

👉Yes, It has a lightweight yet medium plus coverage and blends seamlessly despite its texture – semi-fluid, jelly-like liquid that creates an ultra-thin glossy layer on the skin, you wouldn’t notice that though.

The formula has less SPF number SPF16 (same protection grade though) compared to Neo Cushion (SPF42/PA++) so it has a smoother texture and contains more oils that give a healthy glow on your skin and sets quickly.


On the left is the Neo Cushion and on the light side is a Neo Foundation. Foundation has an oily residue that makes better application and enhances a natural-glow.



Color Comparison

This foundation 23N1 has a slightly darker tone compare to other makeup products for No.23 user(my skin is #22~#23, close to #23), and my skin also can handle 21N1 shade, so color choice would be matter to whom has slightly brighter #23 than standard #23.
I have tried Laneige Neo Foundation Glow (23N1) and I personally prefer the Glow Foundation.


(Once applied, Laneige Neo Glow Foundation matches with my skin tone, Matte Foundation get slightly darker)


As it shows it sets perfectly on my skin tone. It has a semi-glow so if more matte finish, you can dab with setting powder over the Glow Foundation or simply touch up with Laneige Neo Cushion Matte over the butterfly zone which the area get touched with face mask/

This image shows a comparison for 17N1, 21N1 and 23N1 – visible difference, right? One good thing is No.17 & No.21 shads are both quite good match with Laneige Neo Cushion so easy to choose, and also Neo Foundation has a 17C1 (No.17 with cool undertone) so if have disappointed in Neo Cushion 17N1 color, go for this new shade.



Laneige Neo Foundation Matte is a very good product that you will definitely enjoy, especially if you’re one of Laneige Neo Cushion lovers. Color choice can be a bit tricky however few tricks could solve the issues, and didn’t irritate my skin at all – comfortable to wear. It appears slightly darkening at the end of the day but wasn’t a big issue to me and doesn’t transfer much on my face mask, only around the edge of the mask – result may differ depending on the weather condition.
