Cushion Compact, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion (02 Beige Rosé)

I remember my excitement in 2016 when the first cushion launched in the UK – about time I thought. I saw the Lancôme Miracle Cushion Foundation at the Boots counter and had a little play with it. I wasn’t overly keen however because it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for as it had low, dewy coverage. (Not that I…

REVIEW: YSL Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation (B30)

After being pleasantly surprised by the L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique which I tried last year, I’ve been a lot more open to trying other Western brand cushions despite the less-value-for-money price tag (that doesn’t come with an extra refill). Despite my view that Korean brands still produce slightly superior cushions, there are aspects of Western cushion formulas that I really enjoy too. One that I initially…

REVIEW: Hera Age Reverse Cushion (C23 Beige Cover)

The Hera Age Reverse Cushion! Whoo! When I first discovered cushions compacts, this one always stood out to me for looking super luxurious with the most elegant packaging, so I desperately wanted to try it. The high end price tag always held me back though and so I continually bought more affordable alternatives. But after trying so many other cushions my eyes couldn’t help but start wandering back towards…
