Christmas is drawing near and it's time to Glow... And in most countries, to have a natural glow seems to be the hardest thing to achieve now that it's cold, dry and pre-cooked in a heated room. And as for us who are celebrating Christmas in a tropical country, there's a need to balance the look of sweatiness and natural glow well. Whatever your climate is, Etude House's Precious Mineral Make up Essence can help to achieve a healthy look.
I purchased this from Korea, thinking that I've never seen this before in any other Etude House outlets before. When I visited the Etude House outlet in Sunway Pyramid, I was pleasantly surprised to know that I can always top up when I run out! One of the few reasons I bought this was that it is non-oily, and it gives skin a sheer colour. It's good when you don't intend to look heavily made-up... you know, that natural glow that we were talking about :)
I guess, correct me if I am wrong, that there are two ways to use this. You can either use it by itself, or mix it with your BB Cream or Foundation to get that slight shimmer. I prefer to use it by itself.
The texture is a little pasty and that's because of the little beads of powderised balls of colours in the bottle. The colour of the gel make-up is more on the pinkish side, it suits people with fair skin but with just a tiny amount, it can make any skin tone glow. Forget your bronzer, that can make you look tired if you use it wrongly.
I quite like how it makes my skin sparkle a little without looking too party-ish. I guess this is another one of the Korean's beauty tricks to make them look youthful and healthy!
