HOW THEY WORK

Best Health - - LOOKS -

All the rage in Korea and Ja­pan, cush­ion makeup com­pacts have taken the beauty world by storm by pro­vid­ing skin-tone-evening makeup in the con­ve­nience of a sponge, which goes on su­per-sheer and feels light and re­fresh­ing. The com­po­si­tion of the makeup found in a cush­ion com­pact is sim­i­lar to a tra­di­tional liq­uid but is even thin­ner, so it can be eas­ily held in a sponge. Thin flu­ids are usu­ally com­posed of fast-evap­o­rat­ing in­gre­di­ents, such as al­co­hol, wa­ter and very light­weight sil­i­cone oils, which would be too thin to be able to dis­pense from a stan­dard bot­tle. “In gen­eral, this type of makeup doesn’t have as high of a con­cen­tra­tion of pig­ments or pow­ders as other for­mu­las, so it pro­vides less cov­er­age and shine con­trol,” says Twohy.
