Product Review: Etude House Any Cushion Magic Mint

I've been etudized again recently (a term I coined years ago when the only makeup brand that would fit my budget is Etude House and the time when I was obsessed with it). I stopped purchasing from them for some time because I was not impressed with the quality. I guess my skin condition changed, my skin concerns changed, and my purchasing capacity changed. I tried other brands and was quite impressed that I thought I wouldn't go back. But over the holiday, if you watched my Korean Beauty Haul video, I just couldn't resist the buy 1 get 1 sale of Etude House. I was happy I made the visit and now I remember why I used to love this brand. It's all thanks to this Etude House Any Cushion Magic Mint.

If you have watched my Korean Beauty Haul I did mention there that this Etude House Any Cushion Magic Mint is not a BB Cream. You can categorize this more as a CC Cream or a makeup base. It doesn't help cover imperfections but it does help even out your skin tone and makes it smoother for when you apply BB cream or foundation after. I was impressed by how well it covered the redness of my face. Some spots are still quite visible but the overall effect on my face my quite impressive. I wouldn't wear this on its own though as it made me look ghastly white. I am already pale to begin with and this made me look even paler - like vampire pale. It really washed out the color on my face. Also, this is quite heavy and oily on the face. It only took a good 2 hours for my skin to start producing sebum. Other than those two reasons, I love how it diminished the appearance of redness and red spots on my face. 

  1. Easy to carry anywhere as it comes in compact form and with a sponge
  2. Evens out redness and red spots
  3. Nice light, powdery, floral scent
  4. Easy to blend and apply
  1. Can make face really pale if worn alone
  2. It can easily make your face oily
