Review: Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion in Natural Beige W13


I am finally able to try cushion BB cream!! *throws confetti* Hahaha I've been wanting to try cushion BB cream for the longest time ever and I am proud to say that I finally got one :p I know. The trend is probably over by now but stilll ... Thank you to w2beauty for sponsoring! Will introduce w2beauty to all of you but let's start with the review first~ :D oh, please beware this post is image heavyyyyyyy! This product is surprisingly super photogenic and I enjoyed myself too much taking pictures of this gorgeous baby.


Product Description:
This cushion pact perfects all-day radiant and moist skin with its multi-function of brightening, wrinkle-reducing, sebum control, and flawless coverage.

Directions:
Pick up certain amount of contents with puff and spread evenly by lightly patting onto skin.

Net weight: 0.52 oz. / 15g




As you can see, I got mine in the shade W13 natural beige. The packaging of this cushion pact is really pretty. The design is super simple yet feels really princessy, just like most Etude House products. Most of the information is written in Korean but enough English translation is provided on the side of the box packaging. Expiry date, printed on the side, is given by the '12M' symbol. Meaning that this product will expire in 12 months after first opening.



Inside the box, you will find the pact with manufacturing date printed behind. In my opinion this is really important so that we know that our cushion pact is new and that it is not an old stock. Opening the pact, you will find a huge mirror and a round puff. I find the huge mirror to be extremely useful especially when you are bringing this pact around and couldn't find any mirror. Very handy, right?


Below this puff, you will find a second lid to store the puff and to keep the BB cream under from drying. Don't worry though, the pact is sealed, with a sticker, at first so that it won't get dry or spilled before you buy it :p



So, that is how the cushion looks like, covered with holes. I couldn't take macro shot but you should be able to see quite well. They are sooo tiny and countless. I don't know if it's just me, but I feel disgusted looking at those little holes. Okay, It's just me. For the sake of the review, I dipped my finger to show you the texture, despite feeling disgusted.


The smell of this cushion pact is lovely. It's subtle but you can definitely smell it when you apply it on your face. I did a little coverage test on lip tint and eyeliner to show you how it covers redness and imperfections.


You can definitely tell that it has amazing coverage, I would say around medium. I like how it evens out and brightens my complexion. It is easy to blend. Also, a little goes a long way. I find that you don't need much product to cover the entire face. However, even though I feel that this cushion pact is kinda moisturizing, it accentuates dry areas and can easily make my face look cakey. Definitely not a good thing but maybe that's just me because I do have dry skin. It's not that obvious though. and also this product feels kinda heavy on my face, maybe because of the fact that this pact gives the skin somewhere in between dewy and matte finish. I usually prefer dewy finish so, yeah. I think it would be fine for those with normal/oily skin though. Oh, this cushion pact has SPF50+/PA+++, isn't is great?

edit: I have found that this actually works wonder if you moisturized you face really well beforehand, especially if you have dry skin like mine. Try using moisturizing makeup base. I did a little extra step in moisturizing my face, used a moisturizing base, and this product doesn't cake at all. In fact it creates a smooth silky finish to the skin and will stay really well up until 8 hours. It also has a really great oil control, my T-zone stayed matte for the whole day when I used this :D I actually starts to really love this cushion pact. I brought it everywhere with me during the weekend. 

Here is a before and after picture of my cheek.


Pardon the ugly pores :') See how it brightens my complexion and cover imperfections, even the redness, acne scars and pores. I am in a love-hate situation with this cushion pact. I love it because it is just so handy to use and easy to bring around but I hate how it cakes. I'm not sure if I'm gonna use this often in the future but I'll try to work it on so that it is still wearable.  I am absolutely loving this! Now I know why cushion pact is such a trend nowadays.

So, here are some ugly selfies to show you how this product looks like on me. Please pardon my messy hair and brows, also my dark circles :p alsooo I do notice my eyes were kinda weird here with uneven eyelids. I don't know what happened. Hahahahaha don't laugh!!

  1. Ah the cushion bb trend! I haven't jumped onto this band wagon yet! It looks like it would work well, but as you mentioned, I don't like cakey-like products either. :/ I may just stick with BBs for now. ^__^ w2beauty is great! I really liked my first experience ordering with them! However, my only complaint is that the shipping takes a full 2 weeks to reach the US where I am. That can't really be helped, so I order from Alice when I'm not in a hurry for stuff ^__^ She offers really great prices too. Very affordable and you can't beat free shipping! I paid the $2 and some change for tracking to make ensure delivery, but I think it'll be safe to opt for free shipping. Great review Bella! You look fantastic with no makeup at all! You can really see how the product brightens your skin tone though! very niiiice! ^^

  10. SAME LOOKING AT MULTIPLE HOLES IN THE SAME PLACE IS TERRIFYING TO ME. IT'S SCARY/CREEPY AS FUQ.
    I've still yet to pick up my first cushion BB/foundation, so I'm going to be mega late to this bandwagon. BUT THE ETUDE ONE IS SO FRICKEN CUTE and the coverage is pretty decent too! :D (IF I EVER GET RICH ONE DAY, I'D FILL UP MY VANITY WITH THE CUTEST MAKEUP AND ETUDE HOUSE AND PAUL + JOE PRODUCTS WILL BE THE HIT OF MY COLLECTION)
