As we all know, BB cushion trend has been in the market for quite some time. Korean cosmetics being the pioneers in this area so naturally, there are more brands coming up with BB cushions. So it was really easy to get hold onto a cushion in any Korean Cosmetics stores and they are coming up with more varieties like whitening, brightening, pore minimizing etc. Being a makeup junkie, I was naturally spoilt for choices.
Recently, Etude house came up with a new kind of BB cushion which transform the liquid BB cushion to powder form. Etude House Real Powder Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ is an innovative multi-tasking powder cushion provides all-day flawless face makeup with light and powdery finish. Boy was I pretty excited to give it a try as I wouldn’t need to dust the finishing powder over after the makeup! Gonna save that extra 10 seconds of my makeup routine :p
It feels like normal BB cushion upon application, and as I pat in the BB cushion, it slowly transforms into powder. It feels really matte on my skin so I reckon this is perfect for our humid weather here – especially if you have oily skin. If you have dry skin, there is a tendency that it may cake up by the end of the day due to the texture. By the end of the day, it always boils down to how well you know what your skin need, and try to adhere to it 🙂
My thoughts: A little BB cushion goes a long way, transforming itself into powder really makes the BB cushion feels “magical”. It has a medium coverage and does covers the pores pretty well. However, the fragrance is really overwhelming, which puts me off as it stays on for a pretty long time.
