If you're new to cushion compacts, they're wildly popular in Korea and we're just starting to see the trend emerge here in the US. Many consider them the next big thing in US makeup, since they offer seamless, flawless results with a whisper-light application. If you've never seen a cushion compact before, the product itself is soaking in a sponge within the compact. You take the accompanying sponge and lightly dab it on to the sponge within the compact to pick up product, and apply from there. Pur Minerals is one of the first brands to bring compact cushions to the US (Lancome is launching theirs in the US soon, and you've probably seen the popular IT Cosmetics version, as well as the Laneige Cushion Compact at Target).
Cushion Compacts are not cheap--the can run well over $30 each, which is why I'm writing this post! I want to let you know that the Pureminerals Cushion Compact in Light is currently available on the 6pm.com site for $12.99, and the shades Medium and Tan are $14.99. And of course you get FREE SHIPPING on all orders at 6pm, no minimum required. The regular retail price is $30, so this is a fantastic deal if you've been wanting to try a cushion compact without committing to a higher price tag. Considering that a Physicians Formula foundation runs about $14.99 at most retailers, I'd say jump on this deal ASAP if you're interested.
