My first introduction to Lancome’s new cushion compact foundation was while I was in the Eurostar leaving Paris (sob) earlier this summer. I was reading French Vogue and eating breakfast, and the ad for this foundation made me stop mid-chew, because it was a cushion compact foundation.
Cushion compacts are very popular now if you’re in tune with Asian beauty trends (or should I say Korean beauty trends), and I believe this may be the first Western brand to come out with one.
Either way, Lancome is starting this trend in Western makeup with a bang! Lancome makes some of the best foundations in my opinion, and this new offering, named Blanc Expert Cushion Compact Foundation, is no different. I’ve been trying it out on myself, and also actually used it on a bride over the weekend. She wanted something very light, natural and flawless, and this was perfect.
