Cushion Compact: For A Happier Makeup Bag
It felt like only yesterday we were lapping up the wonders of cushion foundation. Beauty junkies from South Korea to America were obsessing over its beautiful benefits when the trend blew up in 2014 and rumour has it, at the height of the trend, one cushion foundation was being sold every second around the world.

Just when we thought the cushion compacts couldn’t get any better, Sulwhasoo – a brand under the Amore Pacific beauty and cosmetics empire which is responsible for pioneering many K-beauty staples – drops a new generation of cushion foundation.
The upgraded version of its very popular, million selling cushion foundation was launched recently and the Perfecting Cushion EX sure looks promising. The case gets a nice makeover with touches of gold and plum blossom motifs, and it appears more luxe than its predecessor.
The cushion foundation is easy to apply. With just a few dabs and light strokes, the foundation blends effortlessly to give high coverage with a glistening, dewy finish. I am suitably impressed by the lightweight texture of the foundation that instantaneously covers up some of the more prominent blemishes, with very little effort.
Fortified with the moisturising properties of split gill mushroom, the cushion foundation stays longer on the skin and is deeply hydrating too.
Remember how some foundations can make your face appear cakey? Well, that’s a thing of the past thanks to the pigment coating dispersion technology in this cushion foundation, which helps the formula to seamlessly blend onto the skin with long-staying coverage.
To cater to a more diverse customer base, the cushion foundation is available in a new range of shades to suit different skin tones and needs.
Also thrown into the mix for a flawless finish, Sulwhasoo’s Powder for Cushion and Multi Cushion Highlighter. The former is a super light finishing powder with strong lasting power and great efficacy to minimise the appearance of pores and fine lines.
The Multi Cushion Highlighter, a pearl-based highlighter, smoothens out skin tones when applied before the Perfecting Cusion EX. If applied after the cushion foundation, it doubles as a spot highlighter for a luminous and well-defined finish.
