If you haven’t heard of Korean cushion foundations, then trust us when we say that it’s something that you should be including in your next makeup shopping list. In terms of ingredients, this beauty product is similar to your normal foundations, BB creams, or CC creams. However, the magic lies in the way it’s packaged and applied.
Instead of pumps and tubes, cushion foundations are in compact form and come with a special applicator foam that blends the product perfectly upon application. So if you've yet to try cushion foundations, we've listed our top 5 Korean cushion foundations that you should try for a smooth and flawless finish
HERA UV Mist Cushion
This cushion contains silicone that delivers a very smooth finish. As the name suggests, it also contains SPF 50/PA+++ that help protect the skin from sun damage and lock in moisture with its clay-mineral ingredients.
The Face Shop Oil Control Cushion
Just like the other reliable products from The Face Shop, their oil control cushion lives up to its name. It prevents shine and is waterproof, which makes it last all day. It doesn’t do much for coverage but the lightness and consistency of this cushion makes it easier to retouch without turning cakey.
Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion
If you want something that is good for covering blemishes, this cushion is the one for you! It has pearl mineral powder which gives a flawless and natural finish. With continued use, it also claims to brighten and illuminate the skin in the long run.
Innisfree Water Glow Cushion
This cushion is great if you’re going for a dewy look. It’s very light to wear and is really good for simple, daily makeup. It also has SPF 50/PA+++ that’s great if you’re up for a day outdoors.
Missha Magic Cushion
If you want a matte finish but still look moisturised and fresh, go for this cushion. It has anti-aging ingredients that help fight the wrinkles away and also offers sun damage protection. And if you ask us, the best thing about it (aside from the formula), is its cute packaging as inspired by their partnership with LINE.
