This versatile Color Control Cushion Compact perfects the complexion with weightless, buildable coverage, while potent Asian botanicals deeply hydrate, protect from free-radical damage, and brighten skin for a naturally flawless finish. Powerful broad-spectrum SPF 50+ defends against daily exposure to UVA and UVB rays without the typical white cast left from high sun protection content in other foundations. Housed in a convenient compact, this cushion is excellent for everyday use. Apply as the last step in your skincare regimen or on its own for instant perfection that is never messy or cakey.” – On Sephora.com
Reading Time: 4 minutes Lately, my skin has been somewhat combination / dry-prone. Typically, my skin is just dry-prone so I tend to go for skincare that aims to hydrate my skin, and makeup that adds a bit more glowiness / dewiness to my skin. Or makeup, like this cushion compact from Amorepacific, that is quite moisturizing. I rarely go for purely matte makeup – in fact, the most “matte” foundations I wear are the Maybelline Super Stay or Too Faced Born this Way Foundation. While those say they are matte, I would say they have more of a soft satin-matte finish. Anything more matte than those just wouldn’t work on my skin. Because I have dry skin, I’ve always really loved products that give a luminous finish. For example, I love the Nudestix Nudies All Over Face and VDL’s Jellystick Blush. I also tend to love cushion foundations, which is what we’re diving into more today.
