Well this is exciting! Topshop launched a cushion foundation yesterday, the Aircushion Skin Perfector and what’s even more surprising is that though right now the shade range is limited, there are actually some dark shades which almost never happens especially during initial launches.
This Topshop Aircushion Skin Perfector is available in 6 shades currently so it is doubtful that they will satisfy all fair and dark skin tones and everything in between with these few shades but it’s definitely a good start. It’s also great to have another option for inexpensive to mid-range cushion foundations especially for dark skin tones because I can’t think of any cushion foundation at the drugstore which has very dark shades.
The Aircushion Skin Perfector combines the complexion perfecting elements of a liquid foundation with the practical portability of a compact, for easy application and touch-ups wherever you are. The lightweight, sheer formula blurs the appearance of pores and imperfections and can be built to provide medium coverage where needed. The innovative, new cushion compact releases just the right amount of product with no mess or wastage creating a naturally radiant, no makeup finish. Skin tone adjusting properties result in a perfect skin tone match, available in 6 shades.
The shade ranges are from 1 to 6 with 1 being the lightest (shown above) and 6 being the darkest (also shown above.)
The only thing is that if you want to try this Topshop Aircushion Skin Perfector, you can find all these 6 shades only on the Topshop UK website. The US Topshop website only seems to have the darkest shade (6). Hopefully more will be added since it looks like you can’t order from the UK site if you want it delivered to the US. This cushion foundation is $22 (£16.50).
I really want to try this cushion foundation but I’m apprehensive about shade 6. It looks like it is dark enough for me but many times the images used online do not depict the true shade of the foundations and usually end up lighter than they appear online but I think I’ll take a chance on this.
