LANEIGE’s cushion foundations have long been a staple for K-beauty followers around the world, and the brand is about to please fans once again. This September, LANEIGE will be adding a new cushion foundation to its lineup, dressed up in what looks like their most adorable packaging yet. Meet the LANEIGE NEO Cushion.
Available in two pastel shades, NEO Pink and NEO Mint, each colour has a different foundation finish – glowy and matte. Both formulas come in eight foundation shades and even boast blue light protection to boot.
AirPods charging case or cushion foundation?
If we hadn’t told you what it was, you’d probably mistake LANEIGE’s NEO Cushion for an AirPods charging case. Its sleek monolithic case could easily pass off as a tech gadget, making it the most aesthetic cushion we’ve seen in recent years.
Here’s a fun fact: the idea to create a square-like cushion came about when the brand collaborated with Yeongkyu Yoo, a Korean designer who used to be the creative director at Samsung, Nike, and Microsoft HQ. It puts a fresh spin on a round cushion, and we can’t wait to whip one of these pastel babies out for touch-ups.
Besides being easy on the eyes, it’s user-friendly too. Like other cushion compacts in its range, the cushion refill can be easily removed. With this case, however, you can choose to open the cover from either the left or right side. Its borderless design makes it comfortable to hold as well, whether you’re left- or right-handed.
Protects your skin against blue light
By now, most of us are well aware of how harmful blue light can be. Long-term blue light exposure from our digital screens can lead to redness, swelling, and hyperpigmentation, speeding up our skin’s ageing process.
On top of using blue light filtering apps on your devices, you can top up your protection with the LANEIGE NEO Cushion. It’s the first cushion foundation on the market to be blue light certified, so you can minimise blue light damage throughout the day.
LANEIGE NEO Cushion Glow (Pink)
To cop that coveted K-beauty glass skin look, reach for the LANEIGE NEO Cushion Glow. It’s made with the brand’s Liquid Diamond and patented dewy lasting technology to keep your skin glowy and moisturised for 24 hours. Liquid Diamond is just as luxe as it sounds, formulated with liquefied diamond powder and nanosilver glitter to perfect your complexion.
The formula is also infused with niacinamide, which provides a 12-hour anti-darkening effect to brighten up dull complexions. To top it all off, the NEO Cushion Glow comes with a patented “Air-Hole Puff”, where the middle of the puff has 40 air holes to provide a soft application without losing moisture.
LANEIGE NEO Cushion Matte (Mint)
On the other hand, the LANEIGE NEO Cushion Matte uses Humid Defense Technology, which sounds perfect for those of us who live in Singapore. It’s made with a blend of powders to provide buildable medium to full coverage by blurring pores, imperfections, and uneven skin tone for a natural-looking, matte finish.
The 24-hour sweat-resistant formula controls excessive sebum to help makeup last longer. It’s also designed for multiple applications throughout the day. So if your foundation ends up transferring on the inside of your mask, you can touch up without worrying about your complexion getting cakey.
LANEIGE NEO Cushion Glow and LANEIGE NEO Cushion Matte retail for S$62 each. Available from 1 September 2020 at all LANEIGE boutiques and counters, the LANEIGE Official Mall on Lazada, Shopee, Zalora, and Sephora.sg.
