Top 5: Cushion Compacts

top 5 cushion compacts
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will probably have noticed the array of Asian-inspired beauty products slowly but surely making their way to the Western world. We’re huge fans of such Korean products, like BB and CC creams, for their lightweight forumlations and innovative packaging. The cushion compact is a new(ish) concept, that we at frockadvisor are really into. These compacts include a spongey cushion which is essentially saturated with product, ensuring that nothing is wasted and leaks are avoided (making it perfect for travelling!). Most of the available cushion compacts come in the form of BB and CC creams, however, other cosmetic types are following suit! We love cushion compact makeup as your makeup doesn’t look cakey, yet they give you great coverage and make your skin look super healthy! Simply use with the included sponged puff or your fingers, and dip into the compact’s sponge which is soaked with the liquid formula, then pat onto the skin, ensuring to blend.  Take a look at our top 5 cushion compacts below!  1. Lancôme Miracle Cushion

This is Lancôme’s first ever cushion compact foundation, which debuted in Spring 2015. This lightweight product includes SPF 23 and ensures that your makeup looks and feels flawless and dewy. The perfect product for travelling, rather than carrying clunky foundation bottles.  2. Kiko CC Cream Cushion System

Although Kiko is not readily available on our shores, this Italian brand is available online. We are huge fans of this massively affordable makeup line and Kiko’s CC cream cushion compact is one of our favourites in the line. The formulation is light and almost sets to a matte finish (without looking cakey), yet boasts great coverage. If you’re travelling anywhere in Europe, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this amazing brand. 

3. Laneige BB Cushion SPF 50+

This BB cushion compact boasts 6 beauty effects, some of which include, moisturising, sun screen and water resistance, making it the perfect Summer product.  You can wear it sheer or build up on it for more coverage.

4. Dr. Jart+ BB Bounce Beauty Balm photo of dr jart + cushion compact This unique bouncing-textured beauty balm formula brightens and moisturises the skin. It’s of a medium to full coverage, which you can build on. It gives off a quite matte finish making it most suitable for those with normal to oily skin.  5. Stila Got Inked Cushion Eye Liner photo of stila cushion compact Last but not least, is Stila’s Got Inked Cushion Eyeliner. Stila have jumped on the cushion compact wagon and created an innovative product which has gotten us really excited! For eyeliner lovers out there, this one’s for you. Using an eyeliner brush, simply dip it into the unique cushion that’s soaked in colour, which dispenses just the right amount of liner. The formula is long lasting and budge proof.
