Our lifestyle contributor, Erin Sousa, is sharing the most celebrated cushion compacts that will help you flaunt a flawless, glowing complexion!
The latest beauty craze to hit North American shelves is from—you guessed it—Korea! Major beauty lines are rolling out their version of cushion compacts, and we are absolutely loving them.
Cushion compacts are thicker compacts with a thinner BB or CC cream delivered via a foam cushion. The formula gives a light and dewy coverage, yet most versions keep the serious SPF protection of a traditional BB or CC cream intact. Another bonus? The springy foam delivers the weightless product in a super-conservative amount, so you never look cakey or obviously made up. Because of the lighter coverage, the color selection is minimal, so keep that in mind as you make your selection!
- AmorePacific Color Control with SPF 50 ($60): This version has a super-high SPF to protect from sun damage, and it also comes with a refill.
- L’Oréal True Match Lumi ($14.24): With 12 colors to choose from, this is a well-priced option that builds coverage as you layer (if that’s your jam!).
- Laneige BB Cushion ($29.49): So popular that it’s almost always sold out, this version basically kicked off the U.S. trend.
- IT Cosmetics CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation ($38): A well-priced option that boasts SPF 50, and it’s also paraben- and talc-free!
