Etude House BB Magic Pact

Being a real fan of BB creams I was thrilled to see a Pressed BB Powder, called BB Magic Pact by one of the cutest Korean brands Etude House. And since it comes in a light color #1 Light Beige I thought of giving it a try.

I used to use only translucent or white powders from Japanese brands and I am really happy with them. But I figured having a tinted powder wouldn't hurt and a powder without talc, oil and wax formulated for sensitive skin would be the best choice for me.

As it's from Etude House the compact is really adorable. It's a shiny purple case with pretty princessy ornaments embossed on the cover. Some might find this tacky but I love those kind of cutesy things.

The powder is quite finely milled and lightly fragranced. It's a pleasant scent that doesn't bother me at all. It gives light coverage and I find using BB cream, concealer and the powder is enough to give me almost flawless skin.

The color is a pale slightly yellow beige. It blends in very well with my natural NW15 skin-tone.

The finish of the BB Magic Pact is matte without sparkles or glitter. It doesn't look flat though so I am very happy with the result.

I don't know how well it controls oil as my skin is normal-dry but the powder stayed in place all day long today and my makeup still looks like freshly applied. I am not someone who has real problems with fading or getting oily so I cannot say how well this performs on oilier skin-types.

My skin doesn't feel dried out so the BB Magic Pact has definitely moisturizing properties (it contains Aloe and Chamomile).

BB Magic Pact contains 15g and comes with a puff. I find applying it with a big fluffy brush delivers great results, though.

Active ingredients are Chamomile Extract, Aloe Vera Gel, Centella Asiatica.

Here's the description taken from the box:
Pressed Powder compact absorbs oil and supplies long lasting coverage with smooth, moist finish for a natural look. This product is free of oil, talc and wax for sensitive skin.
