Cushion foundations have been making waves in the beauty industry for a while now. The foundation-soaked sponge changes the everyday makeup game–second skin is only a few taps away. But having grown to love bottles of foundation, you still might think twice about switching to this newcomer (unless you’re Korean). Here’s why it’s worth splurging on:
1. It gives you a barely-there finish.
The stamp-pad like application literally feels like you’re just stamping on a new, thin layer of skin. It’s really difficult to over-apply a cushion foundation, compared to bottled liquids.
2. It creates a blurring effect.
It contains an absorbing powder that controls unwanted sebum and blurs imperfections. The finish is light matte but fresh and moist!
3. It works like skincare.
Chock full of skincare benefits, cushion foundations are the perfect combination of skincare and makeup. It doesn’t only cover your imperfections, it also refines your skin over time.
4. No-mess touch ups!
The compact is super convenient for on-the-go touch ups for liquid foundation lovers. Can you imagine bringing a bottle with you all the time?
5. The color of the foundation never fades.
The formula itself is protected from heat, humidity and oxidation. You don’t need to worry about the product going bad! Try our recommended cushion:
Diorskin Forever Perfect Cushion
