If you haven’t heard of cushion foundations, sorry but, where have you been?

The innovative South Korean beauty staple is the key to better skin and we can rapid-fire a myriad of reasons why we are obsessed with them.

For starters, the fuss-free compacts contain a sponge that’s essentially soaked in liquid foundation. This makes it spill-proof, so you can throw it around in your handbag or use it in the back of a moving car without worrying about creating a mess.

On top of offering coverage, the formulas are also chockfull of skincare benefits and even provide sun protection – a perfect all-in-one for those of us who swear by multi-tasking products. And there’s not much blending required. To apply, simply pat the base on with the cushiony applicator it comes with, for a flawless finish.

With the deluge of non-Korean players joining the cushion compact game, we’re spoilt for choice. Scroll the gallery above to check out the new cushion compact offerings.
