Despite looking like a powder compact, what’s inside is actually a sponge-like cushion that releases tiny amounts of a tinted, light fluid that, once applied, leaves a fresh, glowing finish. It’s almost like you get the convenient packing of a powder compact, the lightweight and radiant finish of a BB cream, and the coverage of a foundation in one handy product. 

Designed to combine skin care benefits with the finish of makeup, the buildable formula is concentrated in water and enriched with oils, which leaves skin looking and feeling fresh and hydrated. On top of this, it’s got the added bonus of sun protection (a perfect addition for us Aussies!).

The actual cushion and applicator play their part in a radiant, glowing finish, with the design of both contributing to how the fresh finish of the foundation.

In terms of the coverage, you’ll find the Miracle Cushion provides a long-lasting natural, and sheer finish, with pores and imperfections blurred and skin texture more refined and smooth.
