Why Laneige’s Layering Cover Cushion is our new makeup lifesaver

Think of K-beauty brand Laneige and the first thing that comes to mind is its bestselling cushion compact that has spawned a slew of upgraded versions and releases in less than six years since its debut. From 6-in-1 options to compacts that combine a makeup base and essence in one, Laneige’s cushion game isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

Case in point: The beauty giant recently launched its Layering Cover Cushion that is our new makeup bag must-have for a multitude of reasons. This handheld compact is an innovation in its own right — a 2-in-1 cushion foundation that comes with a concealing base formulated for extreme coverage and to prevent foundation from darkening. With this, you don’t need to lug your concealer and foundation around for touch ups throughout the day (extra brownie points go to its seriously chic, rose gold design too).

The Concealing Base is formulated with a unique technology in a balm-like concealer form of cushion — think cushion, but instead of the usual foundation, it’s actually concealer. The base is made of porous powder components with helps absorb excess sebum, thus leaving a semi-matte finish on your skin. When you’re done with concealing the targeted areas on your face, pat on the Layering Cushion that serves as a foundation to give your skin a bright, pink-tinged effect, thanks to fine pearl powders in the formula. The best part? Antioxidants from lychee skin extracts help to hydrate and keep your skin in check all day long!

Another interesting feature is the cushion puff (named the Edge Puff) that comes with the compact. It comprises of two layers — the velvety top is tailored for the Concealing Base to keep your skin semi-matte; while the bottom layer is to be used with the Layering Cushion to allow for a radiant finish. Note that the Edge Puff imparts a cooling effect to the skin upon contact — perfect to cool your skin while moisturising it at the same time. 


Laneige Layering Cover Cushion will be available at all Laneige beauty counters and boutiques nationwide from mid-March 2018 onwards. Watch this space for updates.
