Today I´m going to tell you something about Etude House´s new product, the Precious Mineral Any Cushion. After it was praised so much I really wanted to try it myself and so I bought it. And it finally was in the mail last friday.
This is was Etude House says: "This cushion pact perfects all-day radiant and moist skin with it´s multi-function of brightening, wrinkle reducing, sebum control, flawless coverage."
The cushion comes in a pearlish looking packaging with a mirror.
The cushion is seperated from the air puff.
The design is simple, but chic. The cushion contains 15g of product and you can buy a refill instead of buying a new one when it´s used up. You can easily take the cushion out of the compact.
When you open the cushion pact for the first time you´ll find a paper wich has to be removed.
And here´s the sponge filled with foundation.
~How to use~
"Pick up certain amount of contents with puff and spread evenly by lightly patting onto skin."
First of all I need to say that I really like the design of the Any Cushion. It looks simple but to me this is what makes it look very elegant and chic. Although it may be a little bulky it´s quite portable and since there´s a mirror and the air puff, it´s perfect to refresh your make up whenever and wherever you are. It´s so easy.
I swatched it on my hand for you.
As you can see the Any Cushion gives a light and natutral looking coverage. When I apply it on my face it looks very natural, too. Redness is covered up immediatly and small blemishes dissappear as well. But If you´re looking for a very good coverage this product might not be the right one for you. On days when I need a really good coverage I use my BB Cream instead.
It also feels very lightweight on the skin. I almost forget that I wear make up. Well, almost, because there´s one thing that I really don´t like about the cushion pact. It´s the smell. To me it smells really soap-like. But on the other hand my mother said that she likes the smell and that it smells really fresh. I guess everyone has a different opinion about this :)
What I really like is the SPF. This pact has a SPF 50+. That´s so great because I dont like to wear sun screen on my face.
Overall I really like Etude House´s new product.
- elegant, chic packaging
- lightweight on the skin
- gives a natural look
- don´t like the smell
- no strong coverage
Would I buy it again? Yes, I will definetly buy a refill when mine is used up. Although it´s more expensive then normal bb creams considering the amount of product, I really like it. It´s portable, easy to apply and gives you a natural look. I bought the Precious Mineral Any Cushion at Beautynetkorea for 21.99$ (They´re having a sale at the moment and the cushion is on sale for 20.90$).
Although it´s not that cheap and I don´t like the smell I still give 5 bumblebees because this product has so many good points and I don´t want to be without it anymore!
