REVIEW on ETUDE HOUSE Real Powder Cushion.
Have you ever experienced your nose
getting greasy bacause of sebums during summer…
Unless your skin never discharges sebum,
you must have experienced oily touch
around nose and forehead.
ETUDE HOUSE Real Powder Cushion deals with the oily touch
and maintains moist inside skin.
Has thin shape for a cushion.
Thin. But no change in diameter.
Simple shape for a ETUDE product.
To be honest, ETUDE has good quality.
But I don’t usually carry it around
because of its chidlish case…
It’s somewhat embarrassing.
Feels like I’m trying hard to look young.
Inner puff inside.
Puff is slim, too.
Remove inner seal before use.
From left, Honey Beige, Natural Beige, and Light Beige.
Clear difference 🙂
Tested. Seems like Natural Beige fits my skin tone.
Not too bright or dark. Just right tone.
I’ll try Light Beige first.
Feels right. Yet not right
In reality, it’s little brighter than my skin tone.
So my face gets a lot brighter than neck.
I will not use this on entire face.
I’ll just highlight small parts with this.
If you are using #21, this tone is for you.
Seems like this tone fits my skin the most.
Tone doesn’t differ much from my neck.
Naturally gets my skin tone in order.
Just right tone 🙂
If you are using #23, this is for you!
It was littttttle darker than my skin tone.
If you are using #23 or darker tone,
this is for you.
#23 is similar to Natural Beige.
I recommend Honey Beige to people with darker skin tone.
I may have applied too much amount when testing.
Or I didn’t wait long enough for it to dry.
It’s not dry yet.
But when I spread it on entire face,
I could see it presenting smooth skin texture.
Aligned 3 pictures for comparison.
Looks similar. But they are different for sure..
Tones on face look similar.
Test on arm might be more accurate.
First thing I want to say is
that it gets really smooth at the end(not sticky).
Therefore, it has waterproof function
since it’s for summer.
I was on my way to lecture
and showed my boss this cushion
since I thought it was fresh.
She told me that this one has waterproof function
and it really is LOL
Applied on back of hand and poured water on it.
Then I wiped it with towel.
Base was still on back of hand.
Seems like this cushion is for summer for sure.
And the cover.
Covers to some extent.
I applied on entire face thinly.
Then applied once more on spots need cover.
Covers small freckles almost perfectly.
Doesn’t cover moles or pimples perfectly.
But it covers to some extent.
If you want more cover,
apply concealer first and finish it with powder cushion.
I couldn’t feel much dryness.
During summer, my skin turns to mixed skin(dry+oily).
But I apply moisturizing cream even during summer
since my skin is still dry.
But on my dry skin,
I couldn’t feel much dryness after cushion.
Even on dry skin, after thorough basic skin care,
not much dryness will be felt after this cushion.
Lasts quite long.
On my skin, it lasted for 5~6hours.
After thorough skin care,
around 9~10 hours.
From other reviews,
I saw some saying it dries quickly or it floats.
Saw lots of people having problem using this.
One review caught my eyes said that
powder-like thing had came out when applying.
When using this kind of quickly-fixing, powdery product,
never rub it to apply or spread.
Rubbing it causes powder-like things to fall with no doubt.
Again, lastly, let me give you a tip for applying powder cushion.
When using it,
have much powder cushion on puff
and apply it on entire face quickly.
Don’t get powder cushion several times.
Have it once and apply it on entire face
Then, layer once more on spots need cover.
What a quick and convenient cushion ^^
I think I’ll use this cushion for this whole summer.
