Beauty Ed Cynthia Chew’s Top 5 Picks – Cushions
Cushion compact is the best beauty invention of our time. Life has been easier because of it – it is fuss free and saves time for both the busy and lazy alike. To be honest, it wasn’t love at first try for me. It took some getting used to. But now I can’t live without BB Cushions. It’s the perfect solution for those who like me use liquid makeup but finds it troublesome to blend with a sponge or your fingers.

Your one-stop solution for natural, flawless coverage of pores, dark circles and redness for up to 24-hours with a single application. It also comes with an elastic micro-fiber “Any Fitting Puff” for smooth and even application.
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Cushion, $80
This cushion offers a thicker, creamier texture for higher coverage. The sponge cushion is made of interlacing fibres while the mesh helps to ensure a thin, even application. One press of the puff gives just the right dose.
