Why This High-Coverage Cushion Compact Foundation Is Everything
The 10-step skin care routine isn’t the only Korean import that’s rocking the beauty scene. Cushion compacts, complete with their highly pigmented formulas and velvety smooth applicators have been making their mark as well! While there are many cushion compact foundations available, one that we cannot get enough of is Lancôme’s new Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation. Find out why this high-coverage—yet light-as-air—foundation is our everything this summer, below.
At a recent Lancôme event I received a sample of the brand's newest foundation—available this August—and have been reaching for it ever since. This unique cushion compact foundation gives you the coverage of a liquid foundation, with the portability of a powder, and the lightweight, airy finish of a tinted moisturizer, making it perfect for the hot humid summer months when you want to look great…not greasy. Another reason this foundation is a summer (and all-year-long) must-have? It’s formulated with SPF 50, so, not only can it hide sun damage on your skin’s surface—read: dark spots and discoloration—it can also help prevent more from occurring. Win-win!
The tailor-made, oil-free foundations—14 shades in total—are luxuriously rich and hydrating for the skin—giving you a matte-yet-moisturized finish that’s perfect for both the boardroom and the boardwalk. Its thick and creamy Gel-Liquid formula is housed in the ultra-absorbent cushion covered by an innovative mesh. When tapped with the applicator pad, the formula is filtered through the mesh and the consistency becomes more fluid, helping you get a better, more even, and natural-looking application that blends seamlessly with your complexion. Its micro-pigments help to blur imperfections on the skin’s surface and the cooling effect upon application helps to set the foundation for a truly long wear.
To use, pat the velvety pad applicator onto the cushion mesh lightly. Then, pat the pad onto your face starting at the center and blending outward.
