10 Best Cushion Foundations for Oily Skin 2022

Mar 25, 2022

Though air cushion and liquid foundation both are base makeup products for our daily makeup routine, you can choose either to achieve desired effect. Actually, they are completely different from each other. So what is the difference between them?

First of all, they bring you different finishes. Makeup varies depending on ages, identities and occasions. Girls who have better skin and prefer natural finish can choose an air cushion, which makes it easier to create a nude makeup look but only offers a sheer coverage. If you like heavy makeup and have blemishes on your skin, liquid foundation will be a better option, which has a stronger concealing power.

Secondly, air cushion and liquid foundation offer different benefits. Air cushion is a relatively lightweight base makeup product that features sun protection. It is very easy to use and carry around. So, many young girls love air cushions.

Plus, they have different textures. Since liquid foundation is oily and water-based, it is more moisturizing. Air cushion is cream-based, which is drier than the former, so it’s suitable for oily skin.

Not sure where to start? Here, we’ve rounded up some bestselling air cushions for oily skin to help you out.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Cushion BB Compact often appears in the recommended list of major beauty websites. Featuring the same formula as Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup, it works for oil-control and coverage. If you have oily skin and large pores, this product will be your best bet. Applying it with a dampened makeup sponge helps you achieve radiant skin without looking dull. Plus, Estée Lauder's iconic Double Wear formula lasts all day long while filling in pores and fine lines, leaving you with a matte, smooth finish. The lightweight air cushion makes skin feel comfortable, great for summer. Besides, it comes with SPF 50, which is enough for everyday protection against UV rays. Our tester found that this air cushion is not greasy or sticky, and doesn’t melt in extreme heat, making it perfect for oily or oily combination skin. However, if your skin is not in a good condition, be sure to hydrate skin before applying, otherwise it may cause flaking or creasing. In a nutshell, this air cushion is a great option that makes touch-ups on the go easier. One customer wrote, “I've tried at least 10 special manufacturers that includes comparable object such as cushion foundation, cushion bb, and etc. consisting of these excessive cease brands'. Among these trial and errors, Double put on used to be the fine given that it used to be mild to wear, but had sufficient insurance that I may want to fully use this cushion after the pores and skin care pursuits and depart it a day long.”

There is no denying that this Armani air cushion has gained a cult following. Suitable for oily and oily combination skin, this medium-coverage formula covers dark circles and redness while leaving you with a semi-matte finish. But for hiding serious blemishes, I recommend applying a concealer after this product. Generally, it provides 6-7 hours of coverage. If you use other products to control oil before makeup and apply makeup setting products, it will last longer. This air cushion is made with finely-milled powder that makes your skin feel comfortable and creates a weightless, natural finish for a better complexion. Coming in a red design, this moisturizing foundation gives off a luxurious vibe. Its water drop-shaped puff enables a solid application to the corners of the eyes and the wings of the nose. It makes touch-ups on the go easier. Plus, it comes with SPF 23, enough for everyday protection against UV rays. However, there are no refills for this product. So you have to buy a new one when it’s running out. It’s worth mentioning that this air cushion is rated 4.8 out of 5 on MakeupAlley, and one customer wrote, “This is a first-rate cushion product! I used to use korean bb cushion, they gave this surely fine dewy glow to your skin, alternatively the glow didn’t last, and the shade would flip gray at some stage in the day. None of these troubles with this cushion!”

Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion is a Korean makeup product worth considering. In fact, cushion foundation is created in South Korea, and Korean air cushion is very different from European and American ones. Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion is a classic, oily skin-friendly cushion foundation that comes in an elegant packaging and helps simplify your makeup routine. The lightweight, finely-milled formula seamlessly coats the skin while providing high coverage and giving you healthy, radiant skin. Plus, infused with hydrating ingredients, this air cushion helps keep your skin moisturized and refreshed. It’s worth mentioning that this gentle formula can also be used by pregnant women. It features a soothing scent of flowers and comes with SPF 50 for everyday sun protection. The downside? It doesn't have long-lasting effects, which requires touch-ups for the oily T-zone every 3 hours to avoid dull skin or makeup separation.

This air cushion from AmorePacific is also a Korean makeup product that is highly recommended by many fashion bloggers and beauty websites. It comes in a silver-toned round packaging with a translucent water drop-like lid. The lightweight, finely-milled formula works well to control oil while keeping your skin refreshed, perfect for summer. However, its coverage may be not that good. If you have serious skin imperfections, I recommend applying a concealer after this product. This air cushion helps add radiance and plump the skin. If your skin is in a good condition, you can’t go wrong with this product. What’s more, this long-lasting, moisturizing formula contains nourishing ingredients and comes with SPF 50 for everyday protection against UV rays. One customer wrote, “It's not a replacement for everyday sunscreen (most of us don't apply enough to receive the full SPF value), but it's a terrific way to reapply sun protection on the go and lighten your skin.” Plus, neither does it leave the finish looking patchy or dull your skin when your skin starts to get oily, nor causing creases when you touch up your makeup. However, some users complained about its strong smell. Including one refill, this cushion foundation is worth your money.

If you’re looking for an affordable but quality cushion foundation, I highly recommend Wet n Wild Megacushion Foundation. The super finely-milled formula resists creasing, dullness or oxidation. Featuring excellent staying power and full coverage, this moisturizing product keeps your skin hydrated even in winter while covering pores, dark circles and even scars. The super bendable foundation allows you to apply a small amount to cover the whole face. Suitable for oily and oily combination skin, this long-lasting formula seamlessly coats your skin over time. If your skin is in a good condition, a single layer of the product is enough to leave your skin with a healthy, natural look. But if you have oily skin, I recommend using some makeup setting products. This budget-friendly cushion foundation has received a lot of positive reviews. One customer wrote, “I bought it because of the positive reviews, but I wasn't expecting much. Oh my god, the finish on this is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!!! It took less than 2 minutes to apply and blend, and the result was so immaculate that I was taken aback. It feels like nothing is on because it is so light. I've never found a foundation that doesn't make my skin seem oily. Purchase this!” Please note that this product only comes with SPF15. So for outings on harsh sunlight days, don’t forget to apply sunscreen.

Available in 5 bright shades, this product is more lightweight than liquid foundation and is not sticky even if applied multiple layers. Suitable for oily and oily combination skin, it may not give you a perfect finish at first, but seamlessly coats your skin over time thanks to the blending of face oil and your base makeup. Plus, this air cushion stays put for 9 hours without oxidizing. It works well to hide acne marks, redness, dark circles, dark spots, and large pores. But if you have serious blemishes, I recommend applying a concealer after this product. Great for fall and winter, this cushion foundation creates a refined, matte finish without accentuating fine lines and pores or causing creases. In addition, packaged in a black exquisite case, it’s well sealed to prevent leakage. It includes a round powder puff and a compact mirror for touch-ups on the go.
