We love how portable and cute cushion foundations are. They are such an easy and mess-free way to retouch your face without having to worry about foundation getting all over your bag. Another reason to love cushion foundations is they come with their own applicators, so you never need to worry about forgetting a brush or beauty sponge.

If you're on the hunt for a new foundation to throw in your bag, here are a few to check out.

Em Cosmetics Daydream Cushion Foundation SPF 50 PA+++

We love this foundation because it has SPF and is super buildable. Since it is lightweight and buildable, the product will give your face a touch of color and help diffuse your skin imperfections while enhancing your skin tone. Another thing to love about this foundation is that it is serum-infused, so you're getting incredible skincare benefits as you wear it.

The key ingredient in this is a micronutrient complex that includes green tea extract, rice water, goji berry extract, snow mushroom extract, green papaya fruit extract, and niacinamide, which all work together to hydrate your skin and help with your skin texture. This also has a natural finish. 

Missha Glow Cushion

We love this cruelty-free, lightweight formula because it has a natural, glowy finish. It promises to be long-lasting and smooth while providing coverage. This product is also another two-for-one that doubles as a foundation and skincare product. Some of the skincare benefits of using this cushion foundation are that it helps with sun damage and moisturizes your skin. It can also help cover blemishes, even your skin tone, and hide discoloration. 

Clio Kill Cover Mesh Glow Cushion

This is another glowy and dewy cushion foundation to keep in your bag. It promises to be long-lasting and boasts a 54-hour staying power. However, it is recommended to keep it in your bag for the occasional touch-up. This lightweight formula is also infused with skincare ingredients that can help soothe, calm, and moisturize your skin. These ingredients include eight kinds of hyaluronic acid, rose water, and chamomile. 

Laneige Neo Cushion Matte

We love matte cushion foundations as much as glowy ones. This product is super lightweight but gives your skin light but buildable coverage. Like many of the other cushion foundations on this list, Laneige's Neo Cushion Matte also has a ton of skincare benefits. It uses elasticity-improving panthenol, moisturizing and retaining hyaluronic acid, and mentha arvensis oil, which helps with oil control. 

Tirtir Mask Fit Red Cushion Foundation

Infused with hydrating ingredients, this formula is super lightweight and non-greasy. Not only does this provide hydration, but it also offers UV protection and, of course, coverage. It has a glass-skin-like finish while also giving a non-makeup makeup look.
