With more và more brands fighting to lớn be part of the cushion compact market, it was only a matter of time that a Korean brand associated with one of the best BB creams on the market would come out with a cushion of their own.

For those who are just tuning in: What is a cushion compact? It’s a sponge that is saturated with a sheer, weightless foundation. You dab an applicator into the sponge and pat the applicator directly onto the skin. Convenient packaging & buildable formula make re-application of makeup easy & fast. The formula typically offers multiple benefits including sun protection, moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients.

But let me backpedal a bit. Mini rant time: Missha DID come out with a Magic Cushion Case about a year ago, but I never curated it because I tested it and it was such a miss, that it was embarrassing. Their concept was a random sponge that you squeezed your existing BB cream into it. Sure, it could work if you’re the type khổng lồ blend several creams into one. But to me, it was a blatant insult lớn the cushion compact innovation - which, sorry lớn say, isn’t simply a sponge with foundation squeezed into it.

The consistency, texture of the formula is key khổng lồ the success of the cushion compact. So is the chất lượng and materials the sponge is made out of. You can’t haphazardly threw together a poor representation of a “cushion compact” just khổng lồ get one out there. -END RANT-

That being said, I forgive Missha because they made up for it with the launch of their Magic Cushion, which I find to lớn be overall a great cushion product.

Here’s why:


Its blue applicator sponge wicks off just the right amount of the formula from the sponge and applies seamlessly & lightly onto the skin. No caked on coverage which is the benefit of the cushion technology.The formula is reminiscent of the O.G. IOPE Air Cushion because it has SPF 50+/PA+++, is moisturizing and leaves a dewy finish.Sleek white package kiến thiết that is even thinner than the IOPE Air Cushion.Currently there are four shades: N21 Light Beige, N23 Natural Beige, N27 Honey Beige, & N31 Golden Beige. We are dying for them to lớn release a more inclusive shade variety and will stock darker shades as soon as they are available!


I prefer a dewier finish, which I find IOPE does better. If you prefer matte, Magic Cushion could be a better fit.The Magic Cushion contains 15g, identical lớn the IOPE - but why bởi vì I feel like I ran out of the Magic Cushion much quicker?I seriously wonder if there is a patent issue pending with Missha và AmorePacific that will cause these to be yanked off the market because they are so similar lớn the IOPE!

"This cushion compact is on par with those made by amore pacific and costs half as much. So easy lớn apply, added bonus if spf 50. Light coverage but I get complements on my skin when I wear it!" - Michelle G"I use this when in a hurry và can"t "fine tune" with concealer as the coverage is medium for me. I like that it gets me out of the house fast and matched my toàn thân color as I"m still a little tanned from summer. The consistency is a bit more matte than I lượt thích for myself because I love the dewy feel of the Amore Pacific but of course that"s just preference thus still the 5 stars." - Stacie A
