Cushion foundation or Liquid Foundation?
Cushion foundation is basically a liquid foundation stored in an easy-to-carry compact. As you press the cushion into the compact, you’ll get just the right amount of liquid formula onto the sponge. The use of the sponge also lets you blend the foundation onto your skin easily.
Instead of having to carry a bulky bottle of liquid foundation, cushion compacts are small enough to fit almost anywhere, easy to bring around for on-the-go touch-ups.
As for liquid foundations, they usually come in a larger glass bottle that lets you squeeze a small amount onto your hand. However, liquid foundation does not come with a cushion, so you’ll need to blend the formula in with a separate brush or sponge.
While liquid foundation usually provide a lightweight and buildable coverage, the larger glass bottles make it difficult to carry around for quick touch ups.
