Petal Skin Cushion Foundation, $78, from Shu Uemura
Essentially, this is Shu Uemura’s famed Petal Skin Foundation in a compact cushion format and we absolutely love it.
For starters, the cushion offers enough coverage to help even out uneven skin tones and conceal minor blemishes. Plus, because it blends so easily, your skin still looks natural after application.
Formulated with deep sea water, the cushion compact offers instant hydration but has a light matte finish — perfect for those with oily skin.
Layering Cover Cushion And Concealing Base, $43, from Laneige
The first of its kind, Laneige’s Layering Cover Cushion And Concealing Base is a 2-in-1 foundation and concealer cushion.
This ultimately means that the cushion offers higher coverage than most but is also really hydrating.
We love that because of the two types of cushion available in one product, you can easily switch up the kind of finish you want. With just the cushion foundation, you’ll get a dewy finish but when mixed with the concealer cushion, you can achieve a semi-matte finish. Definitely getting more bang for your buck with this one!
Perfect Magic Cover Fit Cushion, $47, from Aprilskin
Besides offering full coverage, Aprilskin’s Magic Cover Fit Cushion also offers intense hydration thanks to the fact that it’s formulated with aloe vera and hyaluronic acid.
To make application more hygienic, the cushion is placed under a metal plate to reduce its contact to potential atmospheric contaminants.
Skin Foundation Cushion Compact, $76, from Bobbi Brown
Available in six shades, Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Cushion Compact is sold in two parts. The case is $21 while the refill is $54.
Created with skin-soothing ingredients like pink silk tree, this cushion compact overs high coverage without caking and protects skin from harmful UV rays.
Aqua Glow Cushion, $68, from NARS
The first ever cushion foundation from the brand, NARS’ Aqua Glow Cushion doesn’t just hydrate skin when applied, it also offers medium (but buildable) coverage.
Available in six shades created for Asian skin tones, the formula also features an anti-pollution technology to protect skin. Expect a semi-matte finish with this compact cushion.
Glow Cushion, $59, from Urban Decay
When it comes to packaging, no one does it as cool as Urban Decay does and their Glow Cushion’s iridescent case is no different.
The cushion is formulated with skin-nourishing ingredients to help tone and firm skin while hydrating skin too. We’re also fans of how the cushion has a thin netting right over it to prevent you from accidentally soaking up too much. The cushion offers a slightly dewy finish.
Lingerie de Peau, $81, from Guerlain
Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau cushion compact comes with a dispense plate that helps to protect the product from contamination. It also offers a high coverage without caking skin.
We’re huge fans of the powdery scent too!
