Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion MINT SPF34/ PA++ | Review

Makeup artists always emphasize the use of a good primer to create a flawless and even base before the application of foundation/bb cream. So today, I will be sharing my thoughts on Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion, which is a 6-in-1 almighty color correcting primer that can be worn alone or under foundation/bb cream: Moisturizing + Whitening + Anti-Aging + Sunscreen (SPF 34 / PA++) + Foundation + Cooling.

There are four colors to counteract different skin problems like red, dull or pallid skin:
- Magic Pink smoothes out and brightens pale skin into a healthy and vibrant skin.
- Magic Mint covers blemishes and neutralizes redness for an even-looking complexion.
- Magic Peach brightens dull complexion to make it appear even and refined.
- Magic Lavender balances dull and yellowish skin into a natural bright complexion.

I'm sure many of you have heard about this product over the years. Some of you may have tried it already. For those who haven't and are interested in Magic Mint, I hope my review provides you with the information you need.

Let's begin with the review, shall we?

As I have acne-prone skin and lots of capillaries, I got it in Magic Mint, which is for redness. Ideal for acne-prone and easily irritated skin.

It comes in a cushion compact and is quite bulky compared to the newly launched Etude House AC Clean Up Mild BB Cushion, which I did a review a few weeks ago.

Each cushion compact comes with a built-in mirror and a pink air puff.

And like other cushion compacts, it also has an inner lid where you can place your air puff.

A brand new cushion compact is sealed with a sticker to maintain the freshness.

After removing the seal, the cushion only takes a few presses to get soaked.

How To Use:
Gently press the cushion using the provided puff and apply it onto the skin using a patting motion.

Note: Just a little is enough to correct and balance your skin tone. Take note that piling too much of this cushion will make you look ghostly pale.

Tried and Tested

It has a moist texture and a delicate fragrance. It gives a cooling sensation immediately after applying, and it feels lightweight on the skin.

For your information, I have been using this for about a year now. So far I enjoy it!

It doesn't provide much coverage on blemishes or redness, but it corrects and minimizes redness nicely. I find it hydrates my skin and brightens up my skin tone, giving my skin a dewy and even-looking complexion without looking cakey.

Here's the comparison with and without applying Magic Any Cushion Magic Mint under foundation/bb cream.

As AC Clean Up Mild BB Cushion has more of a yellow undertone, it works well with Magic Any Cushion Magic Mint in balancing white and yellow (skin color), so my skin doesn't look ghostly pale after application. I have to say it primes my skin really well for foundation/bb cream without irritating my skin or causing breakouts.

I find it is average in terms of oil control as my skin still get oily in the mid-day. And in terms of longevity, it is pretty decent. The only complaints I have about this product are that it has the tendency to settle into fine lines and make skin look pale.

Overall, I think it's a great color correcting primer. It does what it promises to do. If you have red, dull, oily or dry skin, you might consider giving it a try.

P.S. For MAGIC MINT, I recommend it to people with light skin tone. For people with tanned skin tone, you might want to avoid this color because it will make your skin look unnaturally white.
