Makeup cushions are one of the best things to happen to the beauty world, and as always, they were first introduced by K-beauty brands. They are very convenient and easy to use.

Now, we have the added benefit of selecting what type of cushions we can use, depending on our personal taste and choices. The sponge cushion and silicone cushion are two of the most popular type of cushions, and they both have their benefits. If you are confused about which one will suit you better, keep reading for their benefits!


The sponge cushion is a sponge soaked in liquid foundation, BB or CC cream and encased in a compact. There are also powder compacts. They were introduced first by Amorepacific and have changed everything about makeup application. These products are amazing because they offer a flawless coverage that doesn’t run or streak, hours after application.

With sponge cushion, the sponge is saturated with the product, this way, all you have to do is push your puff against the sponge to get the amount of product you need. The products come with added benefits that go beyond just coverage; they feed the skin with healthy ingredients and usually provide sun protection. This way, you are giving your skin amazing coverage but also treating it to healthy skin ingredients.

The sponges also come with a layer of anti bacterial protection to make sure that germs from your puff (and face) don’t get into it.


The silicone cushion has a non porous surface so none of your makeup is wasted. This is a plus considering when using a sponge cushion, it soaks up a lot of the foundation, making you use more than necessary. It is designed to blend your makeup in perfectly. It is also very cool on the skin and won’t worsen irritated skin when applying makeup. Also, since these cushions are made of silicone, they don’t absorb anything, including bacteria! All you have to do is rinse off the surface and you are good to go. You can use your silicone cushion to apply a variety of products, not just your liquid and creamy makeup.

Both the sponge and silicone cushion have great benefits that everyone should take advantage of. This means that you shouldn’t limit yourself to using just one, you can have both and enjoy their benefits! To shop for sponge and silicone cushion products, go to the online store now.
