Korean goodies: Original Raw Ten Cushion Foundation review

Today I'd like to review something that changed its owner as soon as it arrived.
Or after I used this twice to be precise. 
Here comes the product description from the information sheet:

After reading this I had a very blurry vision of what this actually is. A cushion foundation without a cushion? The consistency is kind of right but the cushion compact is definitely missing.
It's a do-all kind of product but am I really supposed to wear this at night? Or pop into bed means pop into bed without the intention to sleep?

The product itself is a very thin liquid which might actually work well as a cushion foundation. I actually did try to apply it with a dry make-up wedge and I got results very similar to those achieved with my IOPE cushion. When using my fingers I think I applied too much product, but the coverage was better.

I suppose it's true that we may treat this product as a CC cream not a foundation, due to its light coverage and tone correcting properties, as a moisturiser as it definitely is insanely moisturising (I'll refer to that in a moment)  and as a sunblock (SPF50+++). So all the claims are fulfilled.

The thing is that this is not the best match for my skin type. This gives my face superglowy, sticky finish that I don't really enjoy, but I imagine someone with dry skin might find it amazing. The finish is very natural and skin-like.

The shade is a nice warm beige without the ashy tones that are often found in Korean cosmetics, it's not terribly light either. With the product being so sheer I believe the tone adapts to a variety of skin tones, so I don't think the shade matters that much as long as you aren't a woman of colour or terribly pale.

EDIT: I had resolved to offer this to my mum, but on second thoughts I decided to use this up myself, it's such a tiny little tube. Why did I change my mind? Well, while I was writing this review I kept playing with this, applying it this way or that and I figured that if I powder this with a finely milled loose powder it looks amazing and so natural on my skin. Once set with powder it stops feeling tacky, doesn't transfer onto my mobile etc. Since sunny weather seems to go on in spite of the hanging seasons, I'm going to use this as my sunscreen these days!
