What are cushion foundations and why are they a thing?
A cushion foundation is essentially a fluid foundation or liquid BB/CC cream that saturates a sponge which sits in a convenient, easy-to-carry, compact – perfect for subtle, daily touch ups. Included in this little game-changer is often an additional applicator which means you won’t have to use your fingers either!
The popularity of cushion foundations began in South Korea. The patting application provides a weightless yet buildable flawless base (read: not cake-y at all!) and they also tend to be dewy in finish so if you’re more partial to a matte or satin formula you might not love cushion foundations as much.
This year we’ve seen an array of options, from drugstore to high end, appear on the market, proving that this practical, portable product is here to stay.
