Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion in Natural Beige

November 04, 2013

Apparently, not only fashion but nowadays the changes in make-up trends so grows faster! from BB Cream to CC Cream then now, its BB Cushion! but this one is Foundation in form of cushion! I was so tempted to buy one since they're praised for their efficiency. So when I got one from Etude House I was extremely happy about it!

Come in rounded Etude's iconic pink plastic compact shape, it was bulkier than any other compact that I ever knew. The reason behind it? they separate the sponge and the cushion. Underneath the separator the build about 5mm "air space" or higher to keep the product safe from bacteria (or, to make it easy, the plastic between the sponge place and cushion didn't touch each other!) hygienic, yes? ^.^/

I heard that the sponge for cushion product different from the usual one. They called it Air Sponge. It comes in blue colour and claims to absorb the product well and blend it nicely. Unlike any other sponge too, it has different way to clean it. The cushion available in 2tone. Honey Beige and Natural Beige. I heard that in Korea they even have 3tone! Mine was in Natural Beige which is a little too white for me but then when I tried Honey Beige, its too dark for me -_-a''. Texture of the cushion feels like sponge. Y'know, those sponge which we can even feel the small pore.

And here's what it claims:
Sun Protection with SPF 50+ PA+++ so it acts as a sunblock or sunscreen
Sebum Control because of it's sebum control powder which prevents greasy skin
Moisturize skin through addition of Hyaluronic acid  supplies deep moisture and watery texture to skin
Whiten Skin through the whitening essence, niacin amide added for a whitening effect
Cover skin imperfections and also to Color Correct
Cooling Effect on the skin once you put it on

On the backside of the product, not only you can find where it made and the expiration date, you can actually push it to separate the cushion from the packaging. Push? YES! its refillable!! throw confetti it!! mega love love yes?? 

Texture of the product itself like tiny droplet of foundation and it has this cool sensation feeling when I applied to my face. Maybe like when you apply your foundie using your wet sponge? 

Below was my before and after. As you can see I have this super tired face! thick eyebag, redness, big pore, uneven skin tone and acne scar. It has a medium coverage and give healthy dewy glow. In my opinion, its ok enough to cover my redness and even my skin tone although, I need extra help from concealer to hide my eyebag and acne scar! One thing that I dislike the most from this cushion is the scent! strong floral scent, in my opinion x___x but luckily its gone after some seconds of application

I have dry skin and tell you what, it makes my face a lil bit oily on the T-Zone after around 1hours of usage. The staying power about 4-6hours, depends on what activity that I have. It didn't completely gone, just fade out :) 

In summary, for product that cost IDR 218.000 it WORTH my money! I could apply it easily and fast, it also refillable, YAY! ^.^/ and although it contains SPF 50+ surprisingly no white cast when I use flash O____O friendly nay? :D

and eventhough its bulky, it now my makeup pouch family member LOL! <3~
