We’re all familiar with the reality of the whole “effortless” makeup thing. No matter how skilled you are with a, achieving full—yet natural—coverage can be time-intensive and messy (don’t worry, you’re not the only one with a makeup bag covered in foundation fingerprints). We were impressed with Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact and now the brand has come up with a new, more compact option: Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup. It’s a cushion compact but in the cutest stick form. The all-in-one product includes the cult favorite Double Wear liquid foundation but in a different, slightly dewier formula, and the tube looks like those markers you used to color cardboard with in elementary school. It’s kind of genius: Without ever getting your fingers involved, you can dot the foundation on your face and then use the sponge tip in a circular motion to do double duty by blending and buffing. We love how the stick comes in a variety of different colors.
You may be thinking that this sounds too good to be true. Isn’t the cushion (just like any makeup applicator) going to get superdirty after a few uses? Estée Lauder thought of that. The cushion pops off and can be washed. The company suggests washing it with mild soap and warm water and then simply popping it back on. The Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup costs $39.50 and you can choose from 17 shades.
