The New Base

One of the latest buzzes to hit the beauty world has been the cushion compact base. While the buzz around these is just coming into effect now, these cushion compacts aren't new to the beauty world. Amore Pacific's version is the original of it's category and has been being used in Korea for a long time now. 


The cushion compact is extremely travel friendly, throwing this guy in your bag is much easier than a bottle of foundation, plus it's also airport friendly - major bonus. The formula is incredibly lightweight and perfect for no-makeup, makeup days. It's non-cakey which means it can be layered for additional coverage and it can be applied throughout the day to top off your makeup and keep your complexion flawless.  Not only is it a makeup product, it also includes skincare in it's formula and has an SPF of 50. Even though the compact is small, it lasts a good amount of time and also includes a refill. 

The only two flaws I tend to find with the product is that the color range is limited and that the little sponge applicator gets messy fairly quickly. The sponge issue thought can easily be solved by using a brush when applying the product at home.

While this isn't always my everyday product, it's great to have around for weekends and days when I want to wear just a little bit of makeup. Have any of you tested out compact cushions? If so, what are your thoughts on them?
