Hello! I was in desperate need of a new foundation, so I decided to try this one: Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream - All Day Strong #1 Sheer Silky Skin. (wow that was a long name…) I bought in from this seller on eBay. Only $15.30 and free shipping! That’s way less than I pay for foundation in store here in Sweden. Since I have really bright skin I searched the web for the brightest foundation I could find (for an affordable price), and I came across this one from Korea.

First of all I love the packaging! Really cute. But it’s not very convenient for travel.. it’s rather big at 15 cm. But anyway, cute!
I also read that the white tube is more suitable for those who have oily skin (like me), so the #1 Sheer silky skin would help the skin to look more matte. And I think it matches my skin tone quite well! Although I do have a liiittle bit darker skin on my arms since they actually got a bit tanned (OMG HOW??) this summer (//∇//) But this foundation actually has SPF 30/PA++, so it works as a sunblock too. Which is good, since I read that you get more wrinkles more quickly when you expose yourself to the sun a lot O_O
Anyway, here is a picture of me with the bb cream foundation (left), and with no makeup at all (right). I have to say that it really covers up a lot! Although, since I have kind of bad skin (with some seasonal acne traces etc), I’m also using a concealer (from Viva La Diva) underneath. But I really love how the foundation brightens my dull skin, without having some weird looking undertone to it.
With full makeup ^_^ also, I’m wearing a new wig that I bought from eBay as well. gonna write a review on that too soon!
+ It covers spots and brightens up my skin
+ It feels good, and I haven’t had any breakouts yet
+ UV Protection (SPF 30/PA++)
– My skin feels a bit oily after wearing it for too long
– The tube is a bit too big for my makeup bag. but then again, you get more of the product, so it doesn’t really matter ^^
