Today’s review will be on three products that I purchased online . The Precious Mineral Any Cushion , Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit and the Correct & Care CC Cream . There will be other useful information at the end of the review .
Etude House started out in 1985 and is a Korean cosmetics brand . Their name was inspired by Polish composer Frederic Chopin’s studies for the piano . With ladies as their target audience , they ensure their products come in fun , colourful and pretty designs . They also have multiple shades for different skin tones available for most , if not all their products . Many Korean stars have been the ambassadors of Etude House over the years , from 2NE1 to f(x) , SHINee to Lee Min Ho , just to name a few .

The Precious Mineral Any Cushion is SPF 50+ PA+++ and weighs in at 15g . Contains mineral pearl powder and Niacinamide . The sebum-control powder also helps keep the water-oil balance to provide smooth skin .
6-in-1 Properties :
- Wrinkle Care
- Moisture Lock
- Sebum Control
- Skin Tone Correction
- UV Protection
Precious Minerals Any Cushion comes in three different shades . The one I bought was Light Beige N02 .
The Precious Mineral Any Cushion compact case includes a mirror as well as a puff . The casing comes in a variety of different colours , mainly to appeal to the ladies as there are also baby pink , blue and purple ones .
The powder is actually not just powder , but actually cream mixed in . It doesn’t fall out even if you decide to turn it upside down . They look like mini craters and that’s really interesting to me !
Upon first look , you might think it is just a pressed powder , but when you press your puff or finger into the product , cream will appear . I think this is a really interesting concept .
This product , which looks like a compact powder is not all that it is . On your skin , it feels like a liquid foundation , although it has a matte finish , with a little bit of shimmer/shine (not too glossy) . A slight , pleasant fragrance that makes you feel all pretty and clean , and that being something I totally enjoy ! . It essentially brightens your face and reduces imperfections . It also maintains your skin’s moisture , without drying it out or making it oily . One more thing – The SPF 50+ and PA+++ should just be another plus why it’s so good .

Precious Minerals BB Cream Bright Fit is SPF 30+ PA++ and weighs in at 60g . This BB cream contains Pearl Extract , an excellent ingredient for whitening and moisturizing , thus making the skin brighter and clearer , as well as Seaweed Extract containing nutrients and minerals that deeply moisturizes the skin making it smooth and healthy . It also contains 5 α Avocuta preventing the skin from being oily and dull by controlling sebum balance .
Precious Minerals BB Cream Bright Fit comes in four different shades . The one I bought was W13 Natural Beige .
The product comes in a pump , making it convenient and for hygienic purposes .

And it spreads ..
Then it blends !
The BB cream is creamy and not oily or sticky when I squeezed it out onto my skin . There wasn’t a fragrance but rather a light smell that didn’t really catch on or bother me . The product spreads quite easily and from the pictures , you can tell that with just a tiny dot of cream can cover quite a large area of skin .
Correct & Care CC Cream (Front)

Correct & Care CC Cream (Top)
Correct & Care CC Cream is SPF 30+ PA++ and weighs in at 35g .
- UV Protection
- Wrinkle Care
- Correct Complexion
This cream can also be used as a primer or makeup base .
Correct and Care CC Cream comes in two tones , #1 Silky and #2 Glow . In the simplest of terms , #1 Silky is for people with oily/combination skins because it has a matte finish whereas #2 Glow is for dry skin as it has a glossy/dewy finish . The one I bought was #1 Silky .
The CC Cream also comes in a pump bottle .
Before blending ..
You might be shocked at first that the cream is opaque white and might be too bright , but this product is special in that way that it has these capsules that ‘burst’ upon touching your skin . I couldn’t zoom in close enough without making the whole picture blurry , but if you did look close , there are tiny black dots in the cream . These are the capsules that pop on your skin , slowly adapting to your skin tone and nicely blends it out . They are slowly absorbed into the skin which then moisturizes and give it a nice glow .
I really , really love Correct and Care CC Cream . It is the first CC Cream I’ve purchased and I think this is one brand to look out for . There is a really nice fragrance to it , and I like smelling sweet ! I like how it changes from a totally white cream to one that ever so slightly cover my skin , making it flawless and smooth . My skin doesn’t feel oily either . The coverage is lesser that of a BB cream , but that was intended . CC Creams give more of a natural makeup concealer , a little brightening and I would say small imperfections can be covered up totally .
CC Creams have better skin care functions and BB Creams have better coverage . If you want more coverage , first apply the CC Cream , then use BB Cream on areas that you feel need more covering up .
Verdict : Etude House is a well-known Korean cosmetics brand here in Singapore and it has gained a lot of recognition . This is my first time buying anything from Etude House and I must say I am not disappointed , but rather pleased ! I still haven’t found a proper use for the Precious Mineral Any Cushion because when I use the Correct and Care CC Cream , my skin is already brightened up quite a lot and the imperfections have almost all gone away . Redness becomes skin tone and under eye circles are gone . I would apply a tad bit of BB Cream to darker imperfections . The Precious Mineral BB Cream was for someone else so I didn’t really get to wear it out . I love the scents from both the Precious Mineral Any Cushion and Correct and Care CC Cream , both sweet and nice smelling , not overpowering and it lingers for awhile , which I enjoyed . The products didn’t feel oily on my skin , but matte and moisturized . I have tested that the Correct and Care CC Cream do last quite a long time when I am out , almost a whole day really . Definitely will buy again , and totally recommend this brand to anyone interested in looking for good BB or CC Creams at an affordable price . Remember to check the product’s finishes as it may affect your skin type , you wouldn’t want to apply a glossy/dewy CC Cream to your oily skin !
I bought these three products online during a sale . Precious Mineral Any Cushion at $18.99 and the other two products at $15.90 each . The retail prices , as I’ve checked , can go up to a really high amount because the Precious Mineral Any Cushion is a new item just released not long ago .
