Hi there ! Etude House recently launched their new product for SPRING 2014! It is the Precious Mineral Magic Any cushion . So what is this cushion for? It actually works as a base after primer before foundation/BB/CC creams. It comes in 3 colors each for a different purpose - Peach : For brightening dull/yellowish skin tone, Mint : For correcting redness and Pink : For pale skin tones.
Unfortunately I have redness to cover, dull and also pale skin and I was thinking ‘I need all three!’. But of course I can only afford one at the moment so I settled on Pink because I needed something to give my pale skin a healthier tone on days when I really want very minimal makeup.
My review :
Firstly, let me say how sweet the packaging is. You just can’t help but feel young using Etude House products. The cushion cover is pink , the puff is pink and even the cushion itself is pink! This is one of the rare pink items I carry in my bag everyday.
I really like how versatile this product is. It is a very convenient makeup base + highlighter.
I dab a little of this on my T-zone and under eye areas before makeup and it just instantly adds a healthy tone to my pale face. I also like that it helps brighten my eye area and make me look awake in the mornings. This looks a little dewy when I first apply it on my face but it settles into a matte finish.
Tested the product on the right side of my hand.
I carry this around with me quite often nowadays because I like to re-apply under my eye areas if my eyeliner smudges towards the end of the day and I don’t want to look like a raccoon. Best thing is it doesn’t cause my existing make up to cake or smudge!
Because it acts like a highlighter/base, this product does not provide any coverage. I’m not sure about the other two colors but don’t try to apply too much of this at one go.. you will look like you just put on a white sheet mask on your face. One tap on the cushion is enough for the whole face.
This retails at $29.00 (without refill) at local Etude House stores. I find it a little expensive for a makeup base but I figured that I can use this for a long time because a little of it is really enough for an entire face.
I would recommend this for those who has pale skin tone and wish to have a healthier looking skin with a natural glow. This would also be ideal for those who doesn't like too much make up but wish to just provide a radiant/healthy tone to the face without too much hassle!
