Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Review

Hi girlies! Today I want to share my new found love - the Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion. People who know me know that I don't use a lot of make up on a daily basis. I only need a few essential items such as a light-weight foundation, eyeliner, and blush. I've been trying to find the perfect foundation for a long time but never had any luck to have found the one that's with the right coverage, texture, and lasting power. But ever since I tried this one, I think I've found the one!
Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion in Natural Beige W13 (SPF50+/ PA+++)
I bought this from the Etude House store in Causeway Bay a bit more than a month ago. I've been using ever since, and even brought it with me to two trips (Portugal & Spain, and Singapore). Through both trips, I applied it daily for a bit of coverage and sun protection.
I apologize for the somewhat dirty puff :S This means that I actually use the product though! :P 

To apply it, you just pick up however much amount of products with the provided puff and spread evenly on the skin by lightly patting it on. There are only three colour selections. I'm generally very pale and usually need to select the lightest shade. However, after some discussion with my girlfriend and getting the SA's advice, I decided to get the second lightest shade. If you have darker skin, you may not be able to find the right shade. The second picture makes the product look really dark, but it's actually just the colour of the cushion rather than the actual product.

The puff does get dirty after a while, but you can clean it as often as you want to stay hygienic. You can also purchase only the puff at the Etude House store for about HKD2x for one if you'd like to replace it.

Coverage: It provides light coverage so it is not for people who have problematic skin. I personally don't have a lot of pimples, but I do have quite a bit of discolouration that I'd like to balance out. This product does wonders for me in that area.
Texture: It's very smooth and it feels very close to the skin. It gives off a slightly dewy look without being too oily.
Lasting power: I'd say the texture and radiance last for almost the entire day if I stay indoor. I'm extremely impressed with the results.
Price: Very reasonable at around HKD1xx
Packaging: I find that the cushion design is very convenient. It is extremely easy to control how much product you want to pick up by pushing harder or lighter at each go. I also love that the compact is in a pearly white colour, which gives off a very clean look. If I need to complain, the cushion makes it a tad bit hard to pick up the product. I always need to push a few times before picking up the amount that I want.
Scent: Very faint, fresh scent.
Repurchase? YES!
Verdict: I'm totally in love. I noticed that there are many brands who came out with this type of cushion compact. Being so impressed with this one with Etude House, I'm so pumped to try the ones from some of the other brands such as Innisfree.

Much love.
