If you ask us, among K-beauty inventions we're most thankful for, ~cushion compacts~ top our list. They are portable, easy to use, and can give us a fresh-faced look with just a few taps. One big problem that we encounter though, is the lack of diversity in shade ranges. This poses a big problem for morenas because the colors only cater to fair complexions, leaving brown-skinned Pinays in the dark.
That said, we listed down the brands that offer cushion compacts with shade ranges that are more than just the usual milky and beige tones. Keep on scrolling for your next holy grail product:
