Not only are cushion compacts easy to travel with, it’s also praised for its light formula, which is typically infused with good-for-you ingredients for a naturally luminous, healthy glow. Think of cushion compacts as a cross between a light yet buildable coverage foundation and BB cream — giving you enough coverage to make you look flawless sans the cakey finish.
Check out some of our favorites below.
This semi-matte cushion foundation is arguably the cushion compact that started the hype. This foundation actually blurs pores and imperfections while protecting your skin with SPF 50. You can count on this foundation to never look cakey on the skin, even after reapplying throughout the day. The compact even comes with an extra refill!
This oil-free compact is one of our faves because only does it give you an even, hydrated base, it also has a whopping SPF 50. We love how lightweight yet creamy the formula feels on the skin, and the coverage is definitely there.
While most cushion foundations give a dewy glow, this Dior compact is formulated for those with oilier skin. Watch how quickly your pores disappear once applied to the skin, and notice how your foundation actually lasts throughout the entire day.
You really can’t beat the price of L’Oréal’s tribute to the cushion compact trend. This is a great foundation if you’re looking for buildable coverage. Its luminous finish makes you look like you’re radiating — even on the dullest of days.
There’s a reason this cushion foundation is practically sold out everywhere. Its breathable formula and buildable coverage gives a gorgeous soft matte finish for daytime wear. SPF 50 combined with antioxidants help protect the skin from everyday environmental toxins while keeping you looking flawless all day long.
This is another drugstore find we’re obsessed with! Don’t let the price point fool you — the Maybelline Dream Cushion is actually stunning on the skin. The lightweight formula can give you medium coverage while maintaining a luminous glow, making it look impeccable on just about anyone.
