If you haven’t heard of cushion compacts by now, you just haven’t been living! The newest trend in foundation allows for mess-free touchups and convenient traveling. In other words, you can give your Tide to Go pen a break from cleaning up your makeup spills. And that’s just the tip of the beauty iceberg! See why we’re all putting our fave foundations aside and swapping them out for these revolutionary cushion compacts.
Buildable Coverage: If you’re looking for a sheer finish, you’ve got it. Medium coverage? Yep, you’ve got that, too. Skin doesn’t always love to behave, which is why it’s convenient to have different levels of coverage (and the option to build) all in one compact!
Hydrating Benefits: If your foundation and BB/CC cream had a baby, it would look like a cushion compact. Think of this product as a lightweight, hydrating and brightening coverage option, that also has the ability to actually conceal imperfections like blemishes and uneven skin tone.
Travel-Friendly: Throw it in your purse, car or desk drawer at work. It’s spill- and mess-free, there’s no glass to shatter or powder to crumble, so you can literally touch up on the go without the hassle!
Luminous Finish: Like bold brows, it’s no secret that luminous skin is one of the biggest beauty trends right now. So, glowing skin in the form of a compact is something we’d never pass up!
Effortless Application: Just press your powder puff or sponge into the cushion to soak in foundation and tap it all over the skin. No streaks or creasing, and you can layer on more if needed. All you’re left with is fresh, dewy skin in just a matter of seconds. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
