While I was in Korea, I had a chance to stop by a few makeup shops. Korean makeup is considered one of the best in the world so I, of course, jumped on the opportunity to try out a few products. I was instantly drawn to Etude House stores because I'm a sucker for cute things and all of their stores has a pink-and-white, girly princess theme. I realize how basic I sound, especially since I usually don't even like such girly things but there's just something about Etude House. I'm convinced their marketing team consists of geniuses.
In any case, here's my review of their Precious Mineral BB Cream Compact:Packaging: I've said this a million times but I really can't resist cute packaging and Etude House has the cutest packaging ever! The lovely pink color of the compact combined with the softest foam pad makes for a very pretty design. I like that the pad has a ribbon on it - I slip my fingers between the ribbon and the foam for easy application of the product. The compact itself is sturdy and I like that you can hear a click when you close it so you know that it's not going to open up in your bag and fly all over the place. 5/5
Formula: The formula is out of this world! I gotta say, I wasn't expecting too much from a powder but it gives the most even coverage, not to mention a buildable one without looking like there's a caked on layer of makeup on your face! It's perfect to cover up a bit of shine on your face and to even out discoloration on your skin. I also love that this is SPF 30. 5/5
Price: I paid the equivalent of maybe $15 for this. Considering the packaging and the formula, I think this has an amazing price tag - I've spent more money on a product that doesn't perform half as well as this one. 5/5
If you're in the market for a BB Cream and don't mind a powder formula, I'd say give Etude House a try! I can honestly say that it won't disappoint!
