The Upgraded LANEIGE NEO Cushion Is Now More Lightweight And Better Than Ever

The beloved LANEIGE NEO Cushion — in a cute design that looks very much like a tech gadget — gets an upgrade, and is now even more lightweight than before, with coverage that boasts 50-hour colour retention. Introduced in 2020 by the k-beauty brand, the foundation proved so irresistible that it’s now one of LANEIGE’s bestselling items and a staple in their suite of complexion makeup products. That said, the brand is just as keen on adapting existing formulas to better cater to our busy lifestyles, hence this revolutionary revamp.

The NEO Cushion is perfect if you’re looking for long-lasting coverage, as well as a skin-nourishing formula that enhances the skin with skincare benefits. Available in two pastel colours, the NEO Cushion Glow (pink) and the NEO Cushion Matte (mint green), each made for a different makeup finish  — the former gives us a soft, radiant complexion, while the latter contains oil control properties and is all for an even, semi-matte finish.


What’s different here is that both feature an upgraded base formula created with NEO’s seamless technology, which enables a more lightweight texture, while we still get stronger and more long-wearing coverage! The foundation’s formula consists of ultra-fine particles, blended to a minute 0.17μm size, for thin and evenly-blended coverage that conceals pores and fine lines better than ever. Additionally, we hear that the foundation is brilliant at retaining its original hue, true-on-skin for up to 50 hours.

As mentioned earlier, the NEO Cushion is also loaded with skincare benefits, 80% in fact, thanks to a NEO Skin Booster Complex. Its list of powerful actives include Panthenol for firm skin, Hasu Liquid for antioxidant protection, and Blue Hyaluronic Acid for a boost of hydration.

Another glow-up to the bestselling product is the NEO Dot, a bright coral circle attachment that sits nicely within the iconic rounded edge packaging; this holds the cushion puff neatly in place and prevents it from falling out or going missing, making the cushion even more convenient on-the-go!

Ahead, a closer look at the two types of cushion foundations available, and who they’re best suited for.
