This newly launched Tom Ford cushion compact is already sold out
Best face forward
Ask any makeup junkie, and you'll be sure to find a cushion compact in her beauty bag. And while I might be late to the game in discovering the wonders of a cushion compact—I only really started using them this year, I know a good cushion when I see one. Enter the new Tom Ford Traceless Touch Foundation Satin-Matte Cushion Compact.
Encased in a sleek AF compact with TF emblazoned in gold on the top, the cushion compact allows for easy application, with buildable coverage from medium to full that suits all skin types. Concerned about sun protection? Worry not as the foundation protects the skin with high level, broad spectrum SPF 45/PA++++ complete with a blend of antioxidants. The formula is also infused with Aquacell, a plant-based moisturising complex that ensures plump, well-hydrated skin—think of it as a three-in-one product, nourishing and protecting the skin while creating a flawless canvas.
The morning masterclass held at Jaeneung Culture Centre in Seoul gave us a chance to better understand the classic Tom Ford face. "My approach to the architecture of the face is quite simple...flawless skin followed by symmetric definition," says Tom Ford. A digital face mapping demonstration showed the different make-up products to be used on the face to perfect, sculpt and define—the Tom Ford approach to beauty, with perfect skin achieved using the illuminating primer followed by the new Traceless Touch cushion compact, and concealer, if needed.
Available in 8 different shades, the long-wearing foundation boasts resistance to sweat, humidity, and water, making it your best bet for taking on the day without having to worry about your make-up melting. Personally, I love the coverage and radiant-looking finish the foundation offers. Bonus points for the sophisticated case it comes in too. Another newly discovered favourite of mine is the Shade and Illuminate palette, a cream duo that enhances your natural bone structure for a visibly sculpted appearance—hey, cheekbones!
The cocktail event that night saw celebs including K-pop stars Yuri Kwon, Kim Da-Som, Jay Park, Lee Seong-Hwa, and South Korean actors Lee Joo-Yeon and Lee Dong-Hae coming out to play, each of them looking flawless, and I know their (Tom Ford) secret. It's no wonder that a few days later when I was in Tokyo, the Tom Ford cushion compact in my shade, along with two other shades, were already sold out. You snooze, you lose, and here's one cushion compact you'll definitely want to add to your beauty bag.
The Tom Ford Traceless Touch Foundation SPF45/PA++++ Satin-Matte Cushion Compact is now available at the Tom Ford store at Suria KLCC.
