The Highest Ranked Cushion Compact Right Now


Although liquid bronzers and luminous eyeshadows are the products most typically associated with summer, one of our favorites for this time of year happens to be cushion compacts. These popular Korean exports save the day when we're looking for light and breathable coverage that doesn’t feel like a pound of makeup on our faces. There are plenty of subpar formulas on the market today, so we turned to our friends at Rank & Style to help us figure out which one to stash in our purses ASAP.

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style named Lancôme's Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact the winner for its rave online reviews and popularity among users and editors.

On Nordstrom.com, user MikaTwo wrote, "I've been looking for a smooth, not too heavy foundation and I finally found it in this magical little box! It hides imperfections, such as sun spots, and keeps makeup fresh for the entire day. I love this product!"

This lightweight base is not only hydrating and incredibly dewy, but the product has sheer coverage that will brighten your complexion on the spot. Simply tap your sponge into the cushion and dab away at any areas you think need a little freshening up. Then, throw it in your purse for quick touch-ups on the go. It comes in 11 buildable shades, so you'll definitely find one that will make you look radiant for the rest of the summer (and into the fall).

Lancôme Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact, $46.50, available at Nordstrom.
