It’s Friyay! And you know what that means? It’s the day I share some of my favorite things! Today I’m musing about my current foundation crush.
I think I have finally found my “true foundation love”!
For the last few years, I have been searching for a true, full coverage makeup foundation to cover some of my “problem” areas. I haven’t been able to find anything that really covered them up, (I am fairly self-conscious about the dark spots on my face). I have tried many different foundations, including Bare Minerals Liquid Foundation, Limelife by Alcone Perfect Foundation, Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Gel Stick Foundation & Avon True Color Flawless Liquid Foundation. None of these seemed to cover up my dark spots; I still looked as if I have 2 black eyes peeking through! Out of all of these, I found that the Avon foundation worked the best. And even though my spots were still visible, I just settled…until recently.
I discovered a new type of foundation that actually works!
Avon just recently collaborated with Korean beauty brand, The Face Shop and out of this collab came 2 beautiful full coverage foundations! I tried both of them, loved them both, but I’m especially crushing on the Ink Lasting Cushion Foundation! The Face Shop may be a familiar brand to many of you, since it is a global brand, but it is new to Avon and new to me!
Here’s more about Ink Lasting Cushion Foundation:
This innovative, ultra-portable design uses a luxurious cushion to deliver the perfect amount of foundation anytime, anywhere—with zero spill potential.
• Smooth, natural matte finish that enhances, leaving skin smooth and fresh
• Unique, soft-textured puff allows for a lightweight, natural and even application
• Saturated sponge releases controlled quantities of foundation for buildable, medium-to-full coverage
• Brightens and evens skin tone
• Weightless, airy feel—no caking!
• Perfect for on the go
• Mirror included
• Available in 18 long-wearing shades (all exclusive to Avon!)
Shades available in Warm (W), Neutral (N) and Cool (C).
• Niacinamide – Visibly brightens and evens tone
But how does it work? Gently press the poof into the sponge compact to soak up pigment, then apply to your face with a tapping or stamping motion, for an even coverage with a second-skin feel.
*Pro-tip: Flip the cushion with tweezers to extend the life of the product!

HOW CUSHIONS WERE DEVELOPED
The first cushion product was launched in 2008. The idea came from a stamp that could be patted and pressed evenly to deliver liquid formulas. This innovation sparked the booming trend in the Korean Beauty market with a variety of different formulas, finishes and benefits in each cushion compact.
WHAT IS CUSHION FOUNDATION?
The innovation features a unique, saturated, soft-textured sponge that releases a controlled quantity of liquid foundation to allow for even application with a flawless, natural finish. A middle cap inside protects the foundation and prevents it from drying out.
Made in Korea
I’m in love with the flawless finish & coverage of this foundation. And how it makes my skin look.
(First pic of me is at the end of the day, the other is in the morning to show how it lasts)
It’s not cakey or heavy at all, while still covering up the spots I want. It just leaves me with a brightened, smooth, and even complexion. (Note: the other product I’ve been using in conjunction with the cushion foundation is The Face Shop Tone Up Primer in Pink & Lumiere).
