Etude House Philippines Stay Up Foundation in Beige with SPF 30/ PA++

The love month may be over, but here I am sharing one of Etude House's newest products perfect not just for the Valentine season, but for all year round. Finally, something to write about other than food! I'm no makeup guru or an expert in beauty and fashion, but I do love glamming up once in a while. I may not share a lot about it, but I do have my daily skin care rituals and basic makeup routine.

So when I received Etude House's Stay Up Foundation in Beige (P778), I was all giddy and excited. Mainly because it was a product that I really use.

"Etude House Philippines (Rosa Fiore House Corporation) is a cosmetic brand that believes makeup should be playful and not routine. Etude House's mission is to make every Princess’ dream a reality through their lovely products. Their products are developed to reflect four basic concepts: high quality, affordability, lovely design, and a diverse color range."

It comes in a simple plastic tube which I find more convenient to bring as compared to the glass bottle foundations I have. You don't have to worry about accidentally dropping foundation bottles anymore.

Etude House's Stay Up Foundation gives a smooth and flawless makeup with its smooth up, cover up, moist up, and “Stay Up” formula. It contains sea flower emelass and raffinose which helps contain moisture, while the coconut seed butter keeps skin glowing and vital.

It comes in 5 shades: Pure, Rosy, Ivory, Beige and Sand. I found the Beige perfect for my skin tone.

I'm no fan of BB or CC creams since they make my skin too white and oily. I just can't seem to make Korean BB or CC creams work for my face. Plus, I also hate the fact that I can't find a perfect shade to match my skin. It's either too white or too pinkish for me.

Finally a Korean brand that has my shade! I've always been hesitant to try Korean foundations and creams because they all look pinkish to me. What I want is a golden/yellow undertone, and I'm so happy Etude House got it!

You may notice that the shade looks darker than my skin, but I always get a darker shade since it blends on my skin after sometime. I'd rather have that sun-kissed look than have a white and ghostly face.  

Etude House's Stay Up Foundation is perfect for those who want a smooth and mattifying finish. Its sheer coverage is just right to cover up blemishes giving the face a natural glow. As you can see below, my forehead is prone to pimple marks. It does not fully hide pimple scars, but it does minimize the redness of pimple marks.

I'm currently using this since December, and so far I'm loving it! I love how it makes my skin smooth-looking and blemish-free. It doesn't make my skin too oily either. It also has a thick consistency, so a little amount goes a long long way. Glad to have discovered Etude House's Stay Up Foundation!
