This beauty trend hails from our flawless and trendsetter Korean beauty gurus, so it won’t be surprising to find some of the best (and original) cushion foundations from Korean brands. So for those who still are clueless to what a cushion foundation is – just think of it as the lovechild of liquid and powder foundation. It’s liquid but in a compact foundation packaging (though the end product isn’t fully liquid nor powder).
So it does a lot of jobs if truth be told. It moisturizes and does good coverage, for less time and effort. Perhaps you’d try converting to a cushion foundation after reading this?
Missha M Magic Cushion
Any list for cushion foundation will not be complete without Missha. After all, Missha is that South Korean brand who sensationalized the BB Cream. Everybody raves about how it conceals everything (think airbrush and filters but on your face) but still feels light. Just like magic.
There are two reasons why this product has the word lightbulb in it – users swear it’s as light as a feather, and it does give your skin that glowing look. As if you have some kind of background lighting. Great coverage too.
Another brand from South Korea, IOPE has created a scientific approach to cushion foundations. The Air Prism Water™ hydrating ability doesn’t just hydrate but also makes sure that the skin’s radiance is revived. It works inside out. It’s very scientific.
Luminous skin is what this YSL cushion foundation is all about. Their formula is packed with antioxidants and golden pigments. Not to mention it’s looking pretty in its gold packaging and you could also never go wrong with YSL.
Providing 18 hours of coverage, their formula (includes Litchi extract, Glycerin, and Hyaluronic Acid) ensures that fine lines are smoothened and imperfections are covered. Plus it also gives you that healthy, soft glow.
Dior Forever Perfect Cushion
For those who have oily skin and is wondering how a light cushion foundation is going to hold up, then worry not, Dior is coming to your rescue. It has a luminous matte finish, which is hard to achieve with oily skin but well, this product works wonders. Not to mention it still feels light on the skin.
