Housed under South Korea’s cosmetic giant Amorepacific, Iope creates functional products that are based on plant science to restore and heal complexions. And if you are one to always reach out for cushion compacts, this is the brand to thank as it was one of — if not the — first brands that initiated it.

So of course, one of my picks would definitely have to be the brand’s Air Cushion, which is also a best-seller. The hydrating formula is made with Air Prism Water and 3D prism pearls to impart a dewy, luminous fresh-faced glow. A Colouring Technology is also infused to give a seamless, full coverage finish. The surface of the cushion also features an embossed 3D sponge for even application of the product.

Another product to note is its Live Lift Serum. This anti-ager targets what the brand calls as ribbon zone, which ultimately is the area under your eyes (read: cheeks). It believes that plump cheeks are a sign of youthfulness and low firmness in the cheek area causes wrinkles and a sagging chin line. It is also made with agave and milk thistle extracts to firm up and brighten skin.
