Why a Cushion Compact Will Change How You Think About Foundation

The revolutionary South Korean product your make-up kit has been missing!

Koreans have been on the quest for perfect skin for centuries (some say their methods date all the way back to 700 BC) but it is only recently that K-beauty has become a buzzword and a presence the beauty cabinets of the rest of the world.

Korean beauty starts with the skin, porcelain, blemish-free skin in the flesh, every day. Their cleansing-toning-moisturising routines can often involve 10 steps (and counting). Products such as essences, polishers, blemish stickers and sheet masks are used daily or weekly.

Then there is make-up. The South Koreans are leaders in skincare technology and they have introduced the Western world to innovations in make-up too. The latest innovation product to come out of South Korea is the cushion compact.

A cushion compact can come in the form of a foundation, BB or CC cream and is absorbed in a sponge. By pressing the applicator onto the sponge, the cream spreads evenly out of the pores of the sponge – no spills, sticky fingers or separating liquid. The result is super natural, buildable coverage and convenient re-application. However, the packaging isn’t the only upside!

We have exclusively selected the best in South Korean cushion makeup technology here at Fresh. Explore the amazing makeup and skincare technology that South Korean brands such as Etude House, IOPE, Missha, Laneige, Hera, OHui, SU:M37 incorporate in their formulas. It could just be possible, that the quest for complexion perfection is finally over!

The iconic French beauty house Lancôme has taken note of the hype and introduced its own cushion compact, enhanced with multi-benefit properties, Miracle Cushion. Lancôme’s new formula is lightweight, anti-ageing, anti-pigmentation, hydrating and sun-protecting thanks to the pine needle extract, ester oil, adenosine and SPF 23 all contained in the polymer gel. The liquid formula means you can use it as a primer, BB cream or full foundation depending on how much you apply.

Miracle Cushion’s hydrating properties are ground-breaking. When the formula meets the skin it cools the skin down (you’ll actually feel the sensation), which stimulates a fresh and healthy glow. The formula blends perfectly on contact with the skin, leaving a dewy polish that blurs imperfections and pores.

Could it really get any better than that?
