Not Quite a Miracle in My Book

Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact review

I am sure that cushion is going to be the next BB cream. Pretty soon, every company would jump on the cushion bandwagon, and we will be seeing much more than cushion foundations. Originated from Korea, cushion is a very nifty way of packaging liquid in a compact. *Lancome Miracle Cushion is the first cushion anything I have tried, and the story has so many plot twists that it could rival a chick flick!

I remember having this one from L’Oreal with primer on one end and mascara on the other because all my friends swore it worked miracles.” Well, perhaps it did, but I never really figured it out.

Then came graduation day and I thought I’d make an effort. I was unable to cover all the primer up with the mascara. The primer was white, and not even the type that dried mostly clear.
