Product Review: Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream & Stage Lip Gloss

Dear Friends

I have done this look quite some time ago but today is the opportune time to show you. This post is actually a review of 2 products that I like:
1. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream SPF 30 PA ++ (Sheer Silky Skin) 
2. STAGE lip gloss (in No. 16 Persephone).

Finally, I can say that I have found my Holy Grail (HG) BB Cream for my oily skin! The color of the BB Cream is just perfect for my skin tone (MAC NC 30). I applied Skin Food Buckwheat loose powder in No. 21 on top of the BB Cream. This loose powder has superb oil control properties. It is my HG loose powder. I bought this loose powder again and again because it is good for my oily skin.

Can you see the heathy glow? I hope so.

Other products used.

Using Elizabeth Arden Eye Shadow in Indigo and Revlon matte, Urban Decay Sky Scraper Mascara

STAGE lip gloss has a very good brush applicator

STAGE lipgloss in No. 16 Persephone - See the sparkle?

See the color, it brightens my pout!

My Review on STAGE Lip Gloss:

1. The applicator is very good
2. The color is very pigmented and suits my cool skin tone
3. The lip gloss texture is not super sticky and there is no wierd taste
4. It moisturise the lips well (I wore it on its own all the time)

1. I think it is quite expensive about RM50 plus (but I bought it during sales, only RM18)
2. Not very long lasting

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream, Sheer Silky Skin - A winner for me
Why I like Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream?
1. Does not oil up my skin but gives a healthy glow (lasts up to 4 hrs before the blotting paper is needed)
2. Does not clog my pores
3. Nice smell
4. Easy to apply evenly on the skin, blends easily & not cakey (How I apply : spread the BB cream on my palm and use 2 fingers to pat on your skin, then apply evenly)
5. has a pump dispenser
6. Color suits my skin tone (MAC NC 30)
7. has SPF 30 PA ++
8. Medium coverage but gives a sheer look (true to the label - sheer silky skin)
9. Can cover my undereye dark circle
10. Does not oxidize on my skin like other typical BB cream

Price : RM70+ (Dec 2011) but I got this at RM40 plus from Korea

This BB Cream suits my skin color (MAC NC 30)
 The oil test - I put the BB Cream on a piece of oil blotter and left it for 14 hrs
After 14 hrs, you can see the small oil stain. Therefore, I think Etude House BB Cream is less oily than normal BB Cream

Have you tried the Products before? How do you like it?

Have a lovely weekend!
