The secret ingredient in Lancôme’s upgraded cushion you need to know about

When Lancôme first released its Blanc Expert Cushion in 2015, it went straight to our must-have CC list for its lightness and high coverage that feels like second skin. This spring, the French beauty brand has upgraded its bestselling cushion with an improved formula that will change the way you feel about cushion compacts.

But here is what makes the Blanc Expert Cushion different this time around: Aeragel. This secret ingredient is actually made of air at 90%, and is twice as light and luminous than a conventional particle. This means that its porous properties can absorb up to four times its weight in sebum—so trust us when we say that it has got an infallible hold. Another outstanding feature that the Blanc Expert Cushion lies in its cushion. Its fibres are similar to those of fleece clothing, which is excellent in terms of holding high-coverage formula and delivering just the right amount every time you pat it on your skin. 

But no upgrade is complete without a host of new ingredients that work skin deep. Moringa extract and Baicalin help with preventing skin oxidation and protecting skin from UV rays, and peppermint and rose extracts to soothe and hydrate it thoroughly. Available in 11 shades, the Blanc Expert Cushion also comes in both Light and High Coverage for a rosy, windswept glow that’s natural to boot.


Lancôme Blanc Expert Cushion Compact High Coverage SPF50+/PA+++ (RM188) is now available at all Lancôme counters nationwide.
