Review: Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion

This product was sponsored by cosmetics.jolse.com,  opinions are mine.

Hello!~~~

Finally another review! :D
 I'm almost through with my midterms and I can see the finishing line. e.e sooon~
Anyways,
This Etude House Any Cushion has been a very popular product lately, along with other 'cushion' type foundations. And this one in particular has had advertisements with Shinee, and they are quite funny. :P
Although I have never tried a cushion foundation, it seemed like a good concept judging by the combination of coverage of a foundation, and the light-weight feel of dabbing on make up with a sponge, if that makes sense. ;u;

Keep reading for the full review!~
Thanks to Ji Eun from cosmetic.jolse.com for letting me review this product. ^^ 

 (Apologies for the grainy/blue-ish colours of some pictures, the lighting was really odd ^^;) 
I love when products come in a box! I know it's a waste of packaging most of the time, but they are so pretty. *_* And I horde them =.=, need to think of a use for them!

The SPF50+/PA+++ is really great! Same as the Etude House Precious Minerals Sun BB!

I got mine in Natural Beige W13, they also have N02 Light Beige, and W24 Honey Beige.

Ingredients, and easy directions.

The pact is thicker than I imagined, but it's quite sturdy, and still travel friendly. I really like how mess free it is to use, perfect for touch ups during the day. :D

The cushion inside is replaceable, and can be pushed out from the bottom.

Love the big mirror!

Puff~

It comes with a plastic separator, and not the flimsy kind, this one flips over and easy to open.
The puff is also quite nice, I really like that it doesn't suck up too much product, just enough to use, and it's easy to clean too. I wipe it with a wet cloth, since I don't want to soak the whole thing in water just in case that ruins it. >.< lol

When you first open it there's a seal, so you can be sure that no one touched it. lol

*flip* And there's the cushion!

Close up, spongy foundation. :3

Here's the before and after on my face. The lighting was really harsh though. D: I don't think my skin looks that bad. lol
It really brightens my face! And has pretty decent coverage!

Application/Texture
First time trying a cushion foundation, and I have to say I really like how convenient, quick, and mess-free the application is! It takes less than a minute for a very even and light-weight coverage. Just press the puff into the spongy cushion to pick up foundation and dab it on your face! :D No need to get fingers dirty!
The texture is light and non-sticky! And feels so weightless, and looks even (no streaks!), the coverage is decent too.
I really love this~ *_*
5/5

Colour/Coverage 
Like most Etude House BB creams/foundation I chose mine in the shade W13 which matches my skin quite well (for a while I used N02, but realized it's too light/grey for me). I really like the brightening effect it gives. In the second picture you can see after one dab on my face, it really covered most of my freckles and spots, but that's before blending it out. Blending is a breeze, since it's so light it kind of just melts into the skin. haha It does give decent light-medium coverage, although a bit more could be better. :P
4.5/5

Wear
I think the wear for this is decent, it lasted for about 5-6 hours for me. But I find since the packaging is so convenient, I can carry it around with me anywhere and reapply anytime. :3 This also doesn't make my face oily or flaky without powder, please keep in mind I have normal to dry skin type in cold seasons. :P I have no complaints here either!
5/5

Scent
I think it smells like any other Etude House BB cream/foundation. Floral, and powdery scented.~

Overall
I have no complains on this whatsoever! I love everything about it~
It has high sun protection, easy to use, decent even coverage, not sticky, and travel friendly! The only thing that might be a down side is the price, which are usually $20+, higher than most Etude House products. But the refills are only around $10.
4.5/5

Pros
-Travel friendly packaging
-Even light-medium coverage
-Easy to use
-Light weight
-Brightens
-High SPF
-Refills avaliable

Cons
-One of the more pricey Etude House products

    Does it go cakey half way through the day? And does it make your skin itchy?
