Koreans are once again revolutionizing the beauty game. BB and CC creams are, indeed, the bomb, but wait 'til you try their new obsession: cushion makeup. The cutting edge base makeup comes in a compact where a sponge (the cushion) serves as the vessel for the BB Cream, CC Cream, or foundation. A separate sponge applicator is pressed on the soaked sponge to squeeze out the product and is used to stipple the product on your face. The stippling action helps the product melt on the skin faster, creating a natural-looking finish.
Similar to its predecessors, cushion makeup is also infused with skin care ingredients. It protects the skin from UV rays and bestows radiant skin. The noticeable difference is that it has a watered down formula, which makes it easier for you to blend and build up coverage. Most cushion makeup also have higher SPF and better concealing properties. They also last longer on the skin compared to regular alphabet creams. Are you already sold on the idea?
