Review: Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion

Feb 18, 2014
If you have not heard about "Air Cushion" makeup, I am pretty sure you are not following Korean beauty trend as almost all mainstream Korean cosmetic brands have released their own cushion products lately.

I was first attracted by Laneige but eventually I decided to give Etude House a try since their products are much reasonably priced in Singapore. (I will buy Laneige if I visit Korea of course).

The concept of "air cushion" makeup is a hit-and-miss thing based on reviews I read online. But luckily, it works perfectly well for me as I am not a "liquid foundation" person. I have no clue why but I just do not find liquid foundation effective even though I own a famous "Cle de Peau Beaute Refining Fluid Foundation". So in the past, I am a typical "sunblock + two way cake" person for many many, many many years.

But since I bought my Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion in Natural Beige (W13), I have been using it daily without a fail. Yes I do love this product very much for various reasons:
- it's easy to apply, easier than any form of foundation for someone who's not too good at makeup like me
- it smells so great that I just want to keep applying it again and again
- it has relatively good coverage on pigmentation, average coverage on blemish
- it makes my skin look radiant with even tone
- it comes with a thin and soft puff, making it super easy to apply evenly
- it is slightly dry when my skin condition is not good during PMS period, but most of the time, it's moisturizing enough for my combination skin, which makes it very easy to spread on
- it is not oily and it does not oxidize at all, which is the biggest plus point to me as my skin usually looks dull and dehydrated after wearing foundation for just half a day, and most of the brands I tried, oxidize badly so I only look good for the first couple of hours
- it gives the matte finish in general but keeps the skin moist

The only problem I find with this air cushion foundation, is that it does not settle in on my nose, due to my huge pores but other than that, it's perfect!
