Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Pearl Aura - Review

by Eva Luna No Comments


Current Price / Pret actual - Refill $8.36 (they always have good brand sales, so be sure to watch those)
Amount / Cantitate - 15 ml
Colour / Nuanta - Light Beige
Texture / Textura - normal, soft creamy-liquid bb cream in a case, with a sponge on top of it. I guess this can be called a liquid texture, right? / Este un bb cream normal, cu textura usor lichid-cremoasa, bagat intr-o cutiuta cu un buretel imbibat pe deasupra.
Coverage / Acoperire - it's buildable, medium to full coverage, covers redness really well / medie spre mare, acopera roseata destul de bine
Package / Ambalaj - comes in a hard plastic case, very similar to a powder pact. See picture below. / Vine intr-o cutiuta de plastic tare, foarte similara unei cutiute cu pudra. Vezi poza mai jos.

ENG: First of all, i would like to say that this is a Refill, not the product in it's original case. With some bb cushions, you can change the tiny case that comes in the pact. Say you really loved that product, but you don't want to spend another $20. What do you do? You buy a refill, which is usually half the price, pop the old one out and put the new one in. And Voila! You got yourself a brand new product to use! You can see better the case and refill in my recent review that i did to the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion, which by the way, i love it, and suits perfectly oily and/or combination skin.
***
I've got two motives as to why i bought a refill and not the product itself. The first one is actually really simple: a good friend of mine recommended this cushion to me. The second one: i don't know why, but i was absolutely sure that this cushion wasn't appropriate for my skin type. So i pressed the buy button because my friend couldn't stop raving about it, that it works so well for her, it's long lasting, blablablah~ we all got those chatty friends, right? :))
As a blogger, a beauty junkie and curious since birth, i couldn't resist so i wanted to try it out myself.
***
This product has good points and bad points as well. One of them would be: if you know you have dry patches, gently exfoliate your skin because this product will stick to them and make 'em even more visible. Another bad point would be the short range of colors. It only has two, Light Beige and Natural Beige.
If you know your face gets shiny on your T zone, i suggest a powder on top of it to set in place, otherwise it'll get all over your clothes or phone.
Precious Mineral Any Cushion Pearl Aura *phew~ well, that was a long name :))*, gives you that popular korean dewy finish. They call it mul-kwang-pi-bu, which literally means watery light skin. It's more of a healthy glow, not something oily. Please lovelies, for the love of God, dewy doesn't mean you should smear around your face Vaseline. They're two completely different things! :))
Inside the container, those 6 white dots are filled with a subtle illuminator, and mixed together with the bb cream, that is what gives you that healthy glow from within. It does not contain shiny particles or shimmer, rest assured! Nobody wants glitter on their face! :))
Another thing that surprised me: it offers a pretty decent coverage, even on the red spots or red areas. A single layer is more than enough, because a second one will make your skin look a little bit cakey.
High SPF is always a good thing and this one has 50+, PA+++.
If the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion was more appropriate for an oily/combination skin, Pearl Aura is definitely more appropriate on a normal/dry skin because it keeps your skin moisturized and doesn't dry out your face during the day.
I think i'm gonna keep this cushion for those chilly days, because our fall, spring and winter gets more and more icy as time goes by, and a cushion that keeps my skin moisturized is all i need.
Per total, i didn't get along as well as my friend did with this product, in this insane hot weather, but my love still remains the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion.

RO: In primul si in primul rand, acesta este un Refill. La unele bb cushion-uri, exista posibilitatea de a schimba cutiuta din interior cu una noua. Adica ati folosit produsul, v-a placut si vreti sa-l reachizitionati, puteti cumpara direct un refill la un pret mult mai bun. Majoritatea bb cushion-urilor ofera aceasta posibilitate, iar acest lucru se poate observa cel mai bine in review-ul pe care l-am facut de curand lui Innisfree Long Wear Cushion. Acesta la randul lui, se potriveste mai bine unui ten mixt si/sau gras.

Am doua motive pentru care am ales un refill pentru Pearl Aura, si nu produsul in cutiuta lui originala. Primul este destul de simplu: mi l-a recomandat o prietena. Al doilea: eram absolut sigura ca nu o sa mi se potriveasca, si urma sa i-l pasez ei. Asa ca mai mult am apasat butonul de buy de dragul ei, pentru ca i-a mers atat de bine cu el, ca e minunat, ca rezista, ca blablablah~, si nu-i mai tacea gura. Fiind un beauty junkie veritabil, blogger si curioasa din nastere, n-am rezistat. :))

Acest produs are si puncte bune, dar si slabute. Unul din ele ar fi scoaterea in evidenta a portiunilor uscate de pe fata. Daca stiti ca aveti probleme de genul, o exfoliere usoara inainte de aplicare este necesara.
Un alt punct slabut ar fi limita de nuante, fiind disponibile doar in Light Beige si Natural Beige.
Daca stiti ca aveti probleme pe zona T, o pudra este necesara.
Precious Mineral Any Cushion Pearl Aura *phew~ well, that was a long name :))*, ofera acel look dewy specific bb cream-urilor asiatice. Ei il numesc mul-kwang-pi-bu, care literal s-ar traduce watery light skin. E mai mult un healthy glow, nu ceva grasos. Lovelies, for the love of God, dewy nu inseamna ca tre' sa-ti manjesti fata cu un kil' de Vaseline. Sunt doua chestii total diferite! :))
Acele 6 puncte albe din cutiuta ar fi umplute cu un iluminator subtil, care impreuna cu bb cream-ul ofera acel glow from within. Nu contine particule sclipicioase sau shimmery, fiti linistite! Nimeni nu vrea glitter pe obrajori! :))
O alta chestie care m-a cam surprins: acopera destul de bine, chiar si petele rosiatice de pe fata. Un singur strat este de ajuns, iar daca mergeti si pe al doilea, tenul o sa devina cam incarcat.
Un alt aspect pozitiv ar fi SPF-ul destul de bunicel, 50+ PA+++. Rezistenta la transfer este minima.
Daca cushion-ul de la Innisfree mi s-a parut mai bun pentru un ten gras si/sau mixt, Pearl Aura cu siguranta ar merge mai bine pe un ten normal si/sau uscat pentru ca mentine tenul hidratat si nu-l usuca.
Cred ca voi pastra acest cushion pentru lunile mai racoroase pentru ca momentan sunt un pic bronzata. Si tinand cont ca iernile noastre devin din ce in ce mai geroase, o sa-mi prinda tare bine un cushion care mentine pielea hidratata.
Per total, nu mi-a mers atat de bine cu acest produs la 40 de grade, cum i-a mers prietenei mele, asa ca iubirea mea ramane tot Innisfree Long Wear Cushion.


Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Light Pearl Aura Review

ENG: As usual, i would love to know your opinion. Would you try out this cushion? And if you did, how did you get along with it?

RO: Ca intotdeauna, astept cu drag feedback-ul vostru. Dupa cele citite, v-ar tenta acest cushion? Daca l-ati incercat deja, cum v-ati inteles cu el?

Have a lovely day!
