Looking For This K-Beauty Staple? We Have 5 Of Them

As recommended by the CBA 2017 beauty panel

The invention of cushion compacts is truly a game-changer. Gone are the days when we have no choice but to bring a big bottle of foundation and a separate applicator for makeup retouches. With this K-Beauty innovation, we can now apply makeup in a mess-free, convenient way. Not to mention, that there's an array of gorgeous case designs that you can choose from. Sounds like a dream, right?


If you wanna get a piece of this instant beauty classic, consider one of these recommendations from the Clozette Beauty Awards Panel.

The Laneige BB Cushion_Pore Control is very popular with the beauty panel. Clozette Ambassador Ryan Sim says, "This cushion is a classic," he remarks, "Pore Control delivers a harmonious balance of coverage, hydration, and pore care." Another fan of this cushion is Clozette Ambassador Hazel Vinluan, who shared that this cushion helps in reducing the redness on her face and provided her with a satisfying medium coverage.

If you prefer a dewy, glowing finish then the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Intense SPF 50+/PA+++ is the one for you. According to Clozette Ambassador Yen Ong, this cushion leaves skin with a healthy glow. "It's like a post-jogging glow without the stickiness," she said.

"THEFACESHOP Miracle Finish CC Intense Cover Cushion is truly a miracle worker," says Sub-Editor Jordianne Cornejo. Clozette Ambassador Kelly Chin seconded this, "It delivers amazing full coverage that lasts throughout the day." What more can you ask for?



Hera has not yet officially launched in Singapore and the Philippines yet there's already a buzz for the Hera UV Mist Cushion. Clozette Ambassador Roanna Tan says, "It has full coverage, provides easy application and lasts almost the whole day even under the hot tropical weather."

Sometimes it's good to splurge a little, especially when it comes to makeup and skincare. If you're looking for a top-notch compact cushion, Makeup Artist Lolent Lee recommends the YSL Le Cushion Encre de Peau. "It does a good job of correcting redness and dark circle as it has a medium buildable coverage," he said, "The semi-matte finish is also great for the tropical weather."
