Mother of All (Beauty) Invention: The Story Behind the Cushion Compact

You live and breath by your cushion compacts — they’re your all-in-one foundation, SPF, and skincare to go.

About the product

What Is It:


Still on the lookout for your favorite cushion? Meet ours. The Hera UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is more than just a BB cushion — it’s a revolution. Believe it or not this BB cushion is a whopping 5-in-1 product, combining the effects of a mist, sunblock, foundation, brightener, and cooling agent into one gorgeous, iridescent purple compact.
The key to a luminous gleaming finish that lasts is moisture. Have you ever left the house looking flawless only to find your makeup clinging to dry patches by mid-afternoon? Hera UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture ensures a bright vibrant finish that will carry you through your entire day. Hera’s UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture doesn’t overload your skin with oils; it simply locks existing moisture in using Hera’s special MoistureTrap technology. Utilizing mineral clay water containing mineral-rich clay extracted from deep within frozen sea ice helps you maintain the moisture deep within your own skin. This actually reduces sebum overproduction, making this cushion suitable even for all skin types. Additionally, yarrow extract soothes the skin, while hyaluronic acid and camellia hydrate and soften.
The SPF 34 PA++ is broad spectrum, helping boost your sunscreen’s effectiveness by protecting you from both UVA and UVB rays. Hera UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture’s cooling effect gives your skin instant refreshment as the medium, buildable coverage gives skin a clear luminosity. With a few gentle taps of the ruby cell puff you can even out your skin tone, impart glow, and cover up redness. Hera UV Mist Cushion Ultra Moisture is truly the best of all worlds as it has a beautiful all-natural, semi-matte finish. Oily skin doesn’t have to worry about being overly shiny and dry skin needn’t fret about a flat, dull look. This cushion doesn’t just mask skin imperfections, it actually helps build a better complexion — and it’s available in six shades that are just waiting to take you from meh to there she glows!


Our insight:


Want a super natural, yet still polished look? Skip an all-over application. Use this cushion strategically, focusing only on areas that are redness-prone (around the nose) and to diffuse dark discoloration (around the eyes) for a fresh, no-makeup makeup look that’ll have everyone wondering why they can’t be blessed with a perfect complexion like you!


How to use:


Press the puff applicator onto the cushion and dab puff onto face to blend. Apply in thin layers for best results.

Brand info:


Inspired by the beauty, grace, and confidence of the Seoulista woman, Hera strives to bring her sophistication and elegance not just to its skincare and makeup offerings but as an ambassador of K-beauty to the world. And with hallyu star Jun Ji Hyun as the face of the brand, it won’t be hard. Hera Rouge Holic lipsticks and UV Mist Cushion (Paris Hilton is reportedly a fan) are fast becoming must-haves, thanks to their appearance in Jun’s latest drama. And it’s not just about style — there’s plenty of substance to Hera, too. Backed by 30 years of skin cell research, Hera’s innovations include the world’s first cell-mimicking substance as well as its Cell-Bio Technology, which activates skin cells to bolster the healthy functioning of skin. Part of the AmorePacific family, this modern beauty line is every bit as sophisticated and pragmatic as its muse.
