Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Review & Swatches

Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion 2

Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion is currently making a round of reviews across a variety of Asian beauty bloggers. It recently launched in Korea and is a new cushion style foundation product much like we’ve seen from Amore Pacific, Holika Holika, and a variety of other brands recently.

These foundation pacts are becoming very popular in Korea so I suspect you’ll start seeing them here in the US across a wider market come Spring 2014 into Fall 2014. Of course, most of the formulas are BB Cream where as Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion is actually a water based mineral foundation product.

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm Review & Swatches

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm is a BB Cream that’s formulated for adolescent skin types. Supposedly it controls excess oil that “teenage” skin creates and also includes plant extracts which are ideal for sensitive or troubled skin users.

I am obviously not the demographic that Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm is marketing to but I purchased it when it originally launched because it was getting raves for its lighter texture.

Etude House Etude House Rose Flowering Eyes Palette

Etude House Rose Collection for Fall 2013 brings a selection of dusky rose, red, and pink shades together inspired by Sleeping Beauty. The collection launched in Korea on August 26th and rounds up with some lovely new eye pencils, matte glosses, nail polishes, and the most important piece of the collection in my opinion, the Etude House Rose Flowering Eyes Palette.

This I NEED!

Laneige Perfect Pro BB Kit On Trend

Laneige Perfect Pro BB KIT

The biggest hit in Korea in 2012 was the vibrating BB and Laneige Perfect Pro BB Kit is on trend combing the popular BB Cream formula with a vibrating applicator. I think the vibrating BB has died down some but I am seeing a little of it here in the US at the moment as Pop introduced it’s own CC Cream with a separate buzzing applicator you can purchase to apply it. I do wonder if by Spring 2014 the trend might arrive on US shores finally and if so will every brand embrace the same mentality of packaging the two products, BB Cream and sponge, separately. If so I dislike the idea immensely.

Laneige Perfect Pro BB Kit is just one example of a set that features both products at a single price. BRTC also does similar sets which include a single formulation of one of their own popular BB Cream as well as handheld vibrating sponge applicator.
