Ace of Base: 3 Cushion Foundations to Try - By Vanessa Chia
You’ll be surprised at how well these non-K Beauty brands fare.
LANCÔME Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation
An oil-free, high-coverage foundation with buildable coverage for a flawless finish. Also includes a patented Polar Cushion Technology that promises long-lasting wear.
My favourite of the trio. The finish is a soft radiance that isn’t too shiny, which is perfect for my combination skin. And even after a day of running around for meetings, my complexion still looked smooth and flawless. Love how lightweight it feels on the skin and its buildable coverage allows me to cover most imperfections, save for stubborn post-acne spots and prominent under-eye circles.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5 Stars | Retailing at $80 (13ml)
MAC COSMETICS Lightful C + Coral Grass SPF 50/PA++++ Quick Finish Cushion Compact Foundation
More skincare than makeup, this foundation is infused with skin-brightening active ingredients together with Coral Grass extract to plump and brighten the complexion, resulting in that lit-from-within glow. Also contains hydrating properties to strengthen and protect the skin at the same time.
