Hello everyone! How have you all been?
It's finally the start of a new week! I definitely need this week to end as this was probably the worst week of my life. All these crappy things have been happening to me lately! My cat has gone missing but we all suspect that he may have passed away as cats have the tendency to run away to die in peace, I got rejected to many of my top choice colleges, all this drama keeps on happening even though I try my best to stay out of it, school's lame as ever, my neighbors are loud and obnoxious, and lots more. On the up side, I received my Etude House package last week and I utilized that week to test the makeup I ordered. So let's take a look!
As you may or may not know, BB cushions are huge in Korea and Korea always seems to be the first to start any trend whether it's makeup or fashion so I decided to hop on the bandwagon and try myself a BB cushion. This was fairly cheap ($18) compared to the Laneige BB cushion I was about to buy ($34). As I have incredibly dry skin and suffer from eczema, I ordered the Moist version but there is a normal version but I haven't tried that out.
|Horrible translation from a disgraceful Korean-American: 1. Remove the film. 2. Make sure to seal the cushion tight after use.|
|With BB cushion. LOL can you even see a difference? Maybe my mole is a bit covered up|
|Left side: w/ the BB cushion | Right side: w/out (sorry if my eczema disturbs you. I kinda look like Zuko huh?)|
My skin isn't in the best condition at the moment so I do notice this making some of my dry patches a bit more noticeable but honestly, all my foundations and BB creams have been doing that to my skin which is why I haven't been wearing foundations lately but I feel like I can still get away with wearing this without people noticing I'm wearing face makeup. In fact, people have been complimenting how my skin has been getting better lately. Haha sike, jokes on them. I'm just wearing this BB cushion more often.
Edit: If you want to see this product in action with a live demonstration, you can take a look at my makeup tutorial.
- Natural, semi-dewy finish
- Affordable ($18 for the cushion, $10 for refills) A lot cheaper than the other BB cushions out there
- Travel friendly
- Light to medium coverage (easy to build up)
- Lasts an entire humid school day for me
- Sponge puff thing buffs well
- Lots of compliments when I wear this
- Perfect as an everyday foundation
- Only 3 shades but it is a Korean brand which is understandable
- People have been complaining about the scent but I haven't noticed anything wrong. Noted just in case if some of you guys are sensitive to scents
As you can see, way more pros than cons. This wouldn't have any cons since they don't really apply to me but it's something that you guys should know in case you were interested in getting this product.
This will definitely be a part of my daily makeup routine and if I ever run out, I'm definitely repurchasing. Only when the Etude House website has free shipping deals though since shipping from Korea is way too freaking expensive.
Overall, I'm definitely glad I purchased this product. If you guys have oily or combination skin, check up reviews on the regular Precious Mineral Any Cushion because I think that has a lot of decent reviews as well.
I hope you guys found this review helpful and hope you guys have a great week!
