I’ve been hearing about cushion compacts for a while now, first from Korean beauty brands, and now brands more local to me are joining in. Now that they’re hitting my local stores, I thought I would try one out.
This comes in a large plastic compact, when first open it you see a nice, large mirror, and a thin, soft applicator sponge with a ribbon on the back (makes it much easier to hold and control.)
And here’s the famous cushion! The tray where this sponge sits opens with an audible snap, revealing the actual product. Its nice when dealing with a liquid product to see that it seals so well.
There are brief directions printed on the back, with images.
The first time I used this, I was a little confused. The process seemed too short, surely I missed something? But no, one of the major benefits of this format is how quickly you can apply it. This is a light coverage foundation for sure, but it still is able to smooth out the appearance of the skin for a more perfected look.
The thinner, less absorbent applicator is actually quite nice to use, and make blending the foundation into the skin very quick and easy. This is a great foundation for when you don’t want a lot of coverage and/or you need to get your face done quickly.
Even though it is a liquid, this foundation does not require much setting. If you have oily skin you will probably want to set it with powder to help it last longer. I have combination skin, so I generally only need to set my T-zone when using this foundation.
Overall, I find this a very easy to use and likable product, and one I will likely repurchase when I finish it.
Have you tried this product? Tell me what you think! Is there a better cushion foundation I should try? Let me know in the comments!
Disclosure: I purchased this product myself.
