Find your perfect cushion compact with these latest launches.

Let us count the reasons why we love our cushion compacts: They’re easy to carry around; they’re an all-in-one makeup solution; and some even come in adorable cases. Think of these beauty essentials and the first thing that comes to mind is the Korean brands, which makes us wonder why hasn't any Western company come up with their own versions?

All of that is about to change as we welcome the latest batch of multi-tasking compacts to add to your makeup bag. Here are the ones to look out for.


The Glow Getter

To get a dewy complexion, it’s important to keep your skin hydrated. Even so, it takes more than just a moisturiser. Enter Biotherm Aquasource Evermoist CC Cushion, which boasts a blend of moisturising, nourishing and brightening ingredients like Life Plankton cellular water, adenosine and symwhite to give you an extra radiant complexion.


The Shine Buster

If you’ve been afraid of trying out cushion compacts in fear of looking greasy rather than glowing, meet YSL Beauté Le Cushion Encre De Peau. Besides the basics — think luminosity, convenience and fresh finish — this compact also gives a matte finish that oily skin users will appreciate; especially when your skin turns shiny quickly in the day.


The High Performer

Unlike many compact cushions that use the traditional sponge technology, Lancôme Cushion Compact High Coverage SPF 50+ / PA +++ adopts a duo-layer technology that includes a multi-fibre structure and hexagonal protection net. This enables it to have a better formula, high SPF coverage and precise dosage for application. You'll never be afraid of close-ups from now on.
