|If only adverts were truthful and products really gave you skin like that.|
Anyhoo, there are 3 types of BB Compacts to choose from - Silky, Sheer and Flawless coverage.
|Also comes with a cute but thin (not very useful) sponge|
I would say this provides medium coverage which is a lot for a powder (most of the ones I've used are transparent apart from things like MAC mineralise skin finishes (the "natural" ones that are like powder foundation). I didn't like the colour of this much and that's why, for me, I didn't like the fact that the coverage wasn't light. That seems like a total contradiction - I wanted a heavier coverage powder to give me that "flawless" look and then when I get it I'd preferred it to be lighter - well it's 'coz the colour is so yellow toned. Like YELLOW. It doesn't look so bad in the pics but when I did try it on my face it was not attractive, it wasn't awful but I can't say I looked natural, I just felt very cakey and it was so obvious I had lots of makeup on.
It also had minute shimmers in it that I didn't notice at first but closer inspection in sunlight showed them up. So for me this would not be a good product to wear in sunlight unless you want to look shiny all over.
I'm not saying it's an all round bad product. But it just wasn't for me. I like foundation and powder to look natural, like a second skin. This does not look natural on my NC25ish skin. I think if you know you have very yellow toned skin this would be a good product (though I will say I thought I was yellow enough for it- but i guess not). Also, if you have normal skin you might like it. On my combination skin I just felt like it showed up my dry patches a little more than a normal powder would.
This was somewhere around £10 for me (with shipping) which is a lot for a mediocre (ish) powder. I'd rather pay less and get a Bourjois powder or pay more and get a Laura Mercier powder.
It doesn't mean I'm abandoning Etude House products completely but I'm going to be very selective about what I buy in future, I'd rather not waste my money "testing" things, instead I think I'll only buy products that have rave reviews all round.
