But when you can no longer pick up any product, don’t be too quick to throw the product away. There’s actually still a lot of foundation in the sponge that you’ll be wasting if you don’t know this hack.  Simply reach for a pair of tweezers, grab the cushion, and flip it over.

Upon flipping, you’ll realise that there’s still a lot of product gathered at the bottom because of gravity, and is trapped at the bottom part of the sponge.

After slotting the flipped cushion back in place, pick up a cotton swab to clean off any residue.

And voila! You’ll now have a cushion foundation that is almost as good as new.

Aside from flipping the cushion component over, some TikTok users also shared that storing the entire compact case upside down can also prevent excessive amount of product from sinking to the bottom.
