Nailing perfect foundation first thing in the morning is one thing, but the touch-up game later in the day is quite another. You can’t deny the instant polish power of a classic powder compact if your skin is on the oily side, but until now, carting around a bottle of liquid foundation has been the only option for those who love the dewy look. 

Enter: the cushion compact – easily the latest winner of the ‘where have you been all my life’ award. 

Essentially a liquid foundation formula housed in a classic compact, cushions originally hail from South Korea (aka the breeding ground for next-gen beauty innovations) where the nifty packaging plays second fiddle to the dream finish they give: lightweight, dewy and glowing. 
Meanwhile, there’s a new crop of compact cream foundations also riding the no-makeup-makeup movement with super fluid formulas that sink into skin quickly for seamless, totally fool proof reapplications. (We’re talking in the back of a moving cab or in a dark bathroom cubicle kind of simple.) 
Pat it on and never look back.
