Review of Etude Collagen Moistfull BB Cream by uyai
I'm using the darkest shade #2 Natural Beige. It comes in a 50ml pump tube, boasts whitening/anti-wrinkle properties and a modest SPF of 30 PA ++. It's mineral oil, ethanol and paraben free, and also contains Baobab tree & Marine collagen extacts.
This is probably the fullest coverage BB cream I've tried. The consistency is somewhat creamy and thick but manages not to feel heavy on my face. Covers my rosacea and brightens my skin nicely. I am an NC20-25 at the moment because of my fading 'summer tan', but am usually around an NC18-20 when I'm my natural colour. The colour suits me fine when I'm my natural colour and does not look grey or pink toned at all. It gets rid of the yellow tones to my face and leaves a healthy light beige colour in its place. As the day goes on it does darken ever so slightly but not so much that my face is a different colour to my neck.
It gives a semi-matte finish when first applied but after a few hours it looks more glowy. I have combination skin and it doesn't get greasy or shiny (I don't set with powder or use primer) so I don't have to touch up during the day at all. Despite its good coverage, it doesn't look thick or unnatural. It is slightly fragranced but the smell decapitates after a few minutes. I'm happy to say that it doesn't break me out either.
Overall a very good quality BB cream, I prefer this over the Missha Perfect Cover.
