When the “cushion” came into the world of beauty, it was remarkably popular and beloved by women worldwide. Amore Pacific, the biggest Korean beauty conglomerate, first invented cushion in 2008. The cushion is a type of cosmetic where a cushion-shaped urethane foam applies the liquid by stamping on the skin with a special sponge. The liquid formula is comprised of foundation, sunscreen, and skincare.
The first cushion came out from IOPE, a Korean skincare brand specializing in creating biotechnological and plant-based products. The cushion boom swept South Korea quickly. It has become a must-have beauty item in every Korean beauty lover’s makeup pouch. We picked our favorite K-beauty cushions that you won’t be able to leave home without.
