Now that the weather is warming up, we’re all about cream products and light bases. A recent discovery (and obsession) of ours fits this brief to the tee.

Cushion foundations have been one of the ‘it’ products in the last year. Taking inspiration from the Japanese, many brands have put their own spin on of the most coveted beauty trend. The thing that appeals to us about cushion foundations is the light and natural coverage they offer, perfect for an off duty day and warmer months.

Recently, we’ve been testing out the Designer Brands Luminous Perfection Cushion Foundation in Nude Beige. From the first application, we were instantly sold. This compact is everything we love in cushion foundations. It’s light-weight and breathable, and it gives us just enough coverage to even out our skin tone whilst still allowing our sun kissed freckles to peep through. If you’re after something more heavy duty from your base, then this probably isn’t for you. The sheer finish definitely won’t offer heavy, full coverage if you have significant pigmentation or scarring. The formulation of the foundation is flawless. We’ve worn it on multiple occasions during 9-5 days, and have not had any hiccups with creasing or patchiness at the end of the day. The foundation leaves the skin looking dewy and glowy, and we just love the way it makes our skin look in photographs. We can already tell that we will be reaching for this beauty all Summer long.

Are you a fan of cushion foundations?
