[Review] Etude House Almighty Foundation Precious Minerals Any Cushion SPF 50++/PA +++

First, it was the BB creams, then we had the CC creams and now, one of the latest Korean cosmetic fads are BB creams in a cushion compact. Innovative, much? So what results would I achieve from this BB cushion compact? Would it be much better than the usual BB cream in a tube? Read on to find out…

The shade I tried on is Honey Beige W24. It may look sticky on the cushion sponge but upon application, it turns matt pretty quick. I was also delighted by the coverage it provided. As you can see from the below comparison photo, it managed to conceal most of my blemishes rather well. It did a good job with my dark eye circles for a BB cream.

The Almighty Foundation boasts of 6 multi-functions: Suncreen, Sebum Control Powder, Moisture Essence, Whitening Essence, Cooling and Foundation.

Loving the light, natural sheen it gives off like that of a CC cream. If you have just ran out of BB or CC cream, maybe you would like to stop by an Etude House store to check this out.

[Review] Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream & CC Cream

This is seriously way overdue but I’ve only got the test to test them out recently. I’ve tried and tested out a few BB Creams from different brands. Some from Etude House, with the BBdation being one of my personal favourite. But check this out… Now, they have a new range out, presenting the Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit. It’s a global best-seller of Etude regarded as K Beauty BB Cream.

 Why cotton fit? Because it instantly displays incredibly smooth skin with a cotton-like powdery finish.

It is currently available in 3 different shades: N02 Light Beige, W13 Natural Beige, W24 Honey Beige. I got the W13 Natural Beige to try out. This is one of the most commonly used shade too.

Next, check out the Skin Polishing CC Cream,  which acts as an instant skin-coreecting make-up and skin-care all at once. It has an 8-in-1 function (Anti-aging, Stress Relief, Hydration, Whitening, Sun Protection, Tone-up, Smooth Texture and Luminosity). Its specially formulated Magic Layering Capsule of structures will layer the skin with glow while correcting and moisturizing.

There are 2 types available, the Silky for smooth or Glow for a needless to say glowing complexion. And because the current craze on CC Creams are all about achieving that all natural dewy skin look, I was excited to try out the Glow type.

After my trial, I managed to get some shots with my iPhone and here you go:

As you can see from the above photos, BB cream gave me the coverage I required. I had blemishes and redness but my skin tone was even out upon application of the BB cream. I was amazed at how fast it turned into a powdery smooth finish. This is definitely worth checking out, who knows, it might just as well replace the BBdation on the top of my list.

When I applied the CC cream alone, it gave me a glowy and radiant complexion which was however lacking in coverage. This is good enough for those who have perfect, flawless skin but just want a more glowing effect. But for those plagued with crappy skin like me, fret not, cause when you combine both the BB cream and CC cream. You will see wonders!

After applying the CC cream as a base and then adding on the BB cream for coverage. I saw that my blemishes were concealed while I got the most radiant, glowing complexion ever. It felt like as if my face was radiating sun beams out. Haha! Seriously, just check out the last photo above and how light was just bouncing off my cheeks?!

Do check out the Etude House branches in Singapore for these products. You definitely won’t regret trying.
