Cushion compacts have become more popular the last few years with cushion applicators extending beyond foundations and BB creams to other makeup products. The latest launch from NYX Cosmetics utilizes the easy-to-apply applicator in a Powder Puff Lippie Lip Cream ($8.50).
The Powder Puff Lippie Lip Creams look like your average standard tube liquid lipstick, but when you unscrew the cap, a pillowy cushion applicator is revealed. NYX reported that the Lip Creams have a mousse-like finish when they’re applied but dry to a flattering soft powder finish.
There are eight shades in the collection including Cool Intentions (light brown with pink undertones), Puppy Love (warm medium peach), Group Love (true red), Squad Goals (tea rose pink), Teenage Dream (hot pink), Pop Quiz (berry), Moody (cool-toned plum) and Best Buds (nude rose).
NYX isn’t the only brand to launch a lipstick with a powdery finish and lipstick cushion. Clinique recently launched the Pop Lip Shadow Colors featuring a skinny cushion applicator.
