If you have yet to try the new groundbreaking cushion compact products available in BB Cream, CC Cream and foundation formulas, you’re in for an extra-special treat! This breakthrough cushion technology will give you sheer light to full natural-looking coverage, depending on how much you layer on and combines additional face-saving support in the form of everything from sun protection to hydration to anti-aging ingredients and then some. They’re weightless, travel-friendly, can be layered for more or less coverage, quick and easy to apply (just pat-pat-pat or swipe, swipe, swipe!), mess-free and dare I say it…are even fun to use. And the best part about cushion compact formulas? You won’t notice the makeup–all you’ll notice is beautiful skin.
Cushion Compacts 101:
- if you’re always short on time. These cushion compacts are multi-taskers that are capable of delivering sun protection, foundation coverage and different types of skin care in one fell swoop.
- if your makeup skills aren’t your strongest suit. The sheer, build able formulas and easy-on cushion delivery system gives you pro-worthy results the very first time you use them and each and every time thereafter.
- if your coverage needs fluctuate. Because it’s formulated to go on in sheer, even layers you can use a little on days when you’re looking for just-a-little-something or more on those days when you’ve got something to hide.
Here, 4 favorite ways to get in on the cushion compact trend:
Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ ($60) gives you cooling coverage, sun protection, antioxidants, hydration, skin-brightening and can even fills in fine lines and wrinkles. It has a unique bamboo sap formula that replaces the more traditional water in oil base for an emulsion that feels as light as air and looks fresh and natural all day long.
Laneige BB Cushion SPF50+ ($34) goes way beyond your usual BB cream. This color correction/sun protection face product utilizes their breakthrough patented air cushion delivery to deposit the perfect amount of product each and every time for a completely natural looking, shine-free foundation finish. Upon application you’ll notice its wonderfully feeling cooling sensation and appreciate the fact that it also hydrates your complexion and reduces dark spots. Simply toss in your bag for touch-ups throughout the day with no worry of cake-y build-up.
It Cosmetics CC Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation with SPF 50+ ($38) combines anti-aging technology (hello peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, algae, Vitamins A, B, C and E) with pure coverage makeup pigments for sheer coverage that goes above and beyond. Your skin will look smooth, luminous, even-t0ned and naturally radiant.
Pur Minerals Air Perfection CC Cushion Compact Foundation ($38) delivers light to medium coverage with a mousse-like texture that’s portable, contains botanical skin solutions and leaves you with a dewy soft, natural-looking skin. Antioxidants, moisturizers, and anti-aging ingredients round out the formula.
