Isadora | New Releases

We’re all obsessed with the cushion-compact trend lately, and with Lancome’s Miracle Cushion hitting the market earlier last year, it seems it is the best time to ask: is it really worth all the hype?

Isadora Cushion Foundation

So what are cushion foundations? It is simply just a cushion-sponge, drenched in their Isadora Nude fluid foundation and packaged like a compact powder. It’s compact, doesn’t get messy and is very easy to use. This works great for mid-day makeup touch-up, and it gives a natural finish. It is smooth, hydrating and surprisingly, very light. Available in nine shades, ranging from nude blond to nude caramel.

The container has two covers; the mirrored compact contains the “foundation-soaked sponge” and the other, holds the applicator-sponge. The applicator can also be washed and re-used. I make sure I always carry one of these in my bag!

Isadora Perfect Brows Duo Compact Powder

The brow kit took me by surprise.. just perfect for ladies on the go. It comes with two shades, one is a darker, more warmer, taupe-based brown and the other, a lighter brown. The powder has a soft texture that blends well.

You can blend the two shades to get the ideal match. The kit also includes a small applicator with an angled liner brush on one end and a mini sponge applicator on the other end. A little goes a long way, all you need is a tiny bit to get a natural, filled-in look. It can be used both wet and dry.

Isadora Grand Volume Lash Styler Mascara

The mascara (which is currently only available in the black shade), has a spiky elastomer dual-ended brush; on one side it has fan-shaped bristles that help hold in minimal amount of the mascara formula to add volume, and on the other side, it has a gentle taper to even out the lashes and give a more intense look, with separated long lashes. The texture is creamy, unscented. Though it is not water-proof, it stayed on well on my lashes.
