LG teams up with competitor to conquer China

Since launching its Air Cushion line in 2008, AmorePacific’s Cushion compact has taken off, attracting worldwide attention and revolutionizing the make-up routine for women.
The ‘Cushion’ refers to a make-up compact built with specially-designed urethane foam that safely contains and preserves make-up liquid comprised of foundation, sunscreen and skin care formula.
