The cushion compact stole our hearts the minute it started popping up on shelves this side of the sphere. Another brilliant Korean beauty export, it solves all the things we hate about foundation by basically being a CC cream with a built-in blending sponge. But you’ll have the most success by choosing the right one for your skin type.
Best for oily skin
If you thought you couldn’t get in on the cushion compact game because of your oily complexion, THE FACE SHOP makes a version that offers coverage while controlling shine with mattifying effects. But if you’re worried about it being drying, fear not, because the finish is still lighter than most foundations. Our pick: THEFACESHOP Oil Control Water Cushion ($29)
