[Review] Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer SPF30 / PA++ Mint & Illuminate

I admit that I am not a good writer >_< Please bear with me~

Side note. After watching so many YouTubers doing GRWM ("Get Ready With Me") make-up videos, I really wanted to try out. In fact, I did last week, but sadly it didn't turn out well ;____; My phone memory burst to the MAXX when I'm only halfway through the process... Anyway, just a trial to see if it works. Guess you have to bear with me and all these writings for the moment heh :D

For the following weeks, we will be covering on this item --> concealer. Today our star will be Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer. 

Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer

For those who have heard of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer, I think you can pretty much relate to this product here. Unfortunately, previous mentioned Maybelline product has yet to be introduced into Malaysia market (which I think it's kinda awful to feel leaving behind the trend).

Hence, I try to find a product which is similar to Maybelline's yet available for purchase. It's been quite a while from my last purchase on Gmarket. Coincidentally, Gmarket was having an International Shipping Fee promotion during whole June 2016, which it only costs 5,000 won (about RM17++) for every shipment, regardless of the shipment weight. Super duper cheap!

Then I came about a product review from one of my favourite YouTubers (@HelloCatie) on this Etude House concealer cushion series. I felt in love right on the spot, and swear I'm gonna get my hands on them :D (I'm so serious about this)

Let's start by checking their colors! :D

There are a choice of 6 in this series. As you can see, first 3 colors are more on color-correction (a trending make-up technique, mostly popular in Western countries). And the latter 3 colors are the traditional concealer color tones you can get in any Korean cosmetic stores.

I heard of color-correcting make-up technique before, but not really certain how it functions. Unfortunately, as Peach Pink was out-of-stock during that time, I only managed to get two colors, Mint and Illuminate. I have redness skin issue, so I am pretty looking forward to see how Mint will turn out on my face. Meanwhile, as Catie has gave a BIG thumbs up for the natural glow from the Illuminate, I would like to give it a try.

As you can see from the photo above, its design is more like an automatic-pencil. All you have to do is to click the button on one end, and the formula will come out from the cushion end. You should get the formula within 10 clicks.

Above: Mint
Below: Illuminate

The formula itself is rather light and non-sticky. It is a liquid-type concealer, you can be assured that it is quite moisture. In terms of smell/scent, you wouldn't miss the powder-like scent which reminds me of baby powder. Not to say unpleasant, it's just unexpected. (we are talking about cosmetic right? not baby product ._.)

Well I am going to share how these products look on my face with a self make-up tutorial next week. Till then I will talk about first impression. So stay tune! :D

Check out Hello Catie's video here. :)
