The newest cushions are more than just handy tools for midday touch-ups.
FOR A HOT - OUTSIDE, DRY - INSIDE ENVIRONMENT
Su:m37 Water-full CC Cushion Perfect Finish is designed for our sweltering weather: It moisturises dehydrated skin with a semi-matte finish and imparts a fresh rather than dewy glow. For $67, with one refill.
FOR ADAPTABLE COVERAGE
Shiseido’s Synchro Skin White Cushion Compact SPF40/PA+++ brightens the complexion, and has tech that adapts to your skin’s condition. When skin gets oily, the foundation becomes semi-transparent and matte. When skin is balanced, it gives a more dewy effect. Case for $20, refill for $55.
FOR THE MOST FUSS - FREE BASE
Shu Uemura Stage Performer Fresh Tint is the ultimate multi-tasker: It is a primer, foundation, moisturiser, sunscreen and pressed powder. And the antibacterial cushion puff absorbs excess sebum. For $68.
FOR HIGH COVERAGE
A single layer of the lightweight Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect SPF50+/PA+++ conceals every blemish. It also gives skin a pretty glow. For $32.
