Review | It's My Cushion! BB Cushion Compact Case

Review | It's My Cushion! BB Cushion Compact Case

Hi!! 🤗 Sorry for the wait, I was on the other line. But I'm BACK!

The first time I reviewed a cushion compact, I felt that the color selection was severely lacking. There's also the notion that you'll have to go on yet another search to find the right formula/shade/finish, which is simply too much work in this kind of heat (hello, from the melting east coast.)

When the new It's My Cushion compact ($7) was thrown my way, I'd already nailed my foundation routine and really wasn't looking for another way to complicate things. The entire routine consists of me dotting my Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint on my face, (two dots on each quadrant) and blending with my fingers. I'll admit that my fingers, while lovely and sometimes home to cheeto dust, aren't the best application tool. I begrudgingly poured half the bottle into the cushion compact case. 

A side by side comparison of this case and my IOPE cushion compact yielded surprising results. The two cases are IDENTICAL. Except one is only $7. The IOPE has fancier design elements and shiny bits, but the functional parts (hinge, cushion, sponge) were mirror images. The cushion applied my skin tint beautifully- simply pat on your face and watch the redness and discoloration disappear as they're tucked away! 

Whenever your sponge starts to look dingy, pop it out and order a replacement! The compact can turn your favorite foundation travel friendly and eliminates the need for an additional brush or sponge. This is a dream for whenever I take my pennies to Coinstar and see if I'm any closer to my trip to the Bora Bora, but for now it's pretty enough to keep on top of my vanity and apply in a jiffy before I hop to my couch to digest my summer reading list.
