Double fantasy

Think you've tried every cushion in the market? You haven't seen Laneige's Layering Cover Cushion and Concealing Base

There's a reason why cushions have overtaken powder and liquid foundations as the number one choice when it comes base makeup. They're convenient to apply, easy to finish and offer ample, on-the-go coverage. But what if you need even more coverage or want to take your makeup to the next level? Cushions do tend to be the basic bitch product when it comes to makeup, but trust Laneige to take these to the next level. The brand's new Layering Cover Cushion & Concealing Base is the next generation of cushion.

Instead of containing just one cushion, each rose gold compact contains two products: A concealer and a foundation that you layer over. The Concealing Base has a balm-like texture that glides over imperfections covering it without darkening the skin. Unlike some medium-coverage cushions, it is able to camouflage spots, pores and blemishes so skin looks clear and even-toned. Its consistency and priming properties also minimises any excess sebum on the skin and leaves a matte finish that lasts. The puff that comes with this cushion also comes with two finishes for optimal application. The velvet puff is meant to be used with the concealer and comes with a precision tip and shorter fibres to get to hard-to-reach spots like the undereye area and curves of the face.

After you've applied your concealer, move on to the Layering Cover Cushion. Designed for a flawless finish it contains an illuminating jewel powder to give skin a healthy, rosy tone as well as litchi skin extracts to provide antioxidants and hydration to the formula. The air puff is meant to be used with the cushion, as its perforated to help imbue the skin with maximum moisture and a natural finish. We can't promise you that you'll glow like Lee Sung Kyoung but you'll definitely one-up your cushion game with this clever product.
