I thought I would drop in and let you all in on a little secret. A secret? Yes! I wanted to make sure you were all aware of the AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact. This is one of my current favourites and has hardly ever left my handbag, except to apply it in the morning and put it right back in my bag.
The Cushion Compact for Me
This cushion foundation (or CC cream if you prefer) is a blend of skin care and makeup in one. AmorePacific is making sure to infuse its makeup with equal parts nutrients for your skin. While using the cushion foundation to even out your skin tone and add a weightless base, it’s doing much more. It is a mix of Asian botanicals that work to hydrate deeply and protect your skin from free-radical damage. Also, it’s broad spectrum SPF 50+. This means that you get a fair amount of protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
It’s buildable coverage really lets you customize how much coverage you want to wear. It does not get cakey or fake-looking at all with each layer you add. It consistently looks natural with a dewy finish. As it is an Asian brand, it isn’t always said that you need to set the foundation with a powder. I found it actually wears better when left un-set, or only using a setting spray instead of using a powder.
Limited Shade Range
The shade range is very limited, unfortunately, only reaching to the middle of a skin tone spectrum. Hopefully it will expand further into the deeper skin tones to be available for all skin tones. With light shades, I usually find that many run on the yellow side of undertones. This range is more in my favour, falling under the pink undertones. If you’ve ever struggled with undertones and cushion foundations, this could be exactly what you need. I have the shade #102 in Light Pink, which is for quite fair skin (as they call ‘ivory’) with neutral to cool skin tones.
