Dual Finish Foundation versus Miracle Cushion

As a surefire go-to for achieving perfectly smooth and even skin, choosing the right foundation is never something to be taken lightly. Especially after age 30 when skin loses its ability to bounce back from the effects of long days. We analyze two legendary Lancôme compact powder foundations so you can choose the best makeup for you.

Solid: Dual Finish Foundation

What: A compact powder foundation that can be applied wet or dry to correct, unify and mattify the complexion. Versatile, buildable and filled with specialized moisturizing agents, this cult favorite holds all day, blurring away imperfections.

How-to: Option 1: For a seamless look that’s as natural as a second skin, sweep a little of the makeup across the entire face using a foundation brush. Option 2: For an entirely sophisticated look, gently moisten and apply foundation using the handy sponge.

Who for: For busy working girls looking for bright, glowing and relaxed skin that’s guaranteed to stay looking fresh right up until the end of the day.

Liquid: Miracle Cushion

What: A part liquid, part compact hybrid foundation that combines the color-correcting effects of a skincare treatment with the skin-hydrating properties of glycerin as well as anti-aging adenosine and SPF 23/PA++ to protect skin from sun damage and harmful UV rays.

How-to: Simply press the soft cushion with the applicator to release a precise dose of tinted fluid. Apply sparsely and subtly, or across the entire face, according to the desired final result.

Who for: For bare-is-beautiful makeup lovers looking for all the practicality of a compact combined with the fresh finish of a liquid foundation and the benefits of a skin treatment.
