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:

There’s a reason why Laneige BB Cushions have sold 9.7 million units and won 82 beauty awards globally! And this iteration — the Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control — is now upgraded with a two-step system for even better oil control and maximum moisture!
The new technology of this cushion maximizes the brightness and moisture of the skin through a double-coated pigment with micro-sized pearls and moisturizing ingredients to reflect light 360 degrees. At the same time, the oil control system immediately mattifies, blurs pores, and minimizes excess sebum on contact. This effect has been shown to last for up to 12 hours! So what you get is moisture on the inside, a matte appearance on the outside; a refreshed feeling without feeling dry or greasy — the best of both worlds!

Our insight:

Cushion compacts may just be South Korea’s most innovative, game-changing beauty product ever. Read all about cushion compacts here.

Brand info:

Since 1994, Laneige has long been an iconic Korean beauty brand. But it wasn’t until it launched its innovative mineral water technology — clinically proven to hydrate for 24 hours — that Laneige was poised for world domination. Arguably the industry leader in preaching the importance of skin hydration to the West, Laneige’s signature Water Bank line is now a staple in mass market stores across the U.S. In addition to a wide range of skincare products, Laneige also offers color cosmetics, including their cult favorite Two Tone Lip Bar.
