A Cushy Decision

One of the best things to come out of South Korea (aside from the Hallyu wave), cushion compacts are making it easier to put our makeup on, with their better finishes, long-lasting formulas and skin-loving ingredients. The only issue is: We’re now spoilt for choice.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, you’ve probably heard of (and most likely have used) cushion compacts. Their ultra smooth application, hydrating properties, ease of use and airy finish have propelled them from an Asia-only fave to a global essential (for beauty junkies at least) – basically, they’re the Big Bang of makeup.

Given the bounty of cushions in the market today, it’s no walk in the park to choose one that’s most compatible for your skin type and lifestyle. We identify the cushions most suited for the women of today.


If it’s skin-nourishing makeup tinged with a touch of luxury that you want, then Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Intense SPF50+/PA+++ ($105) is your must-have. Extremely hydrating, it also has the highest percentage of skincare ingredients among all of the Korean brand’s cushions.
