Review : Etude House CC Cream in Silky + FOTD & EOTD

From my previous post, I said I would review the Etude House CC cream so now here's the review!

The CC cream is a white-coloured cream with microcapsules.

It is said the cream would adjust to skintone once blended. 
The mechanism of the cream is like when pressure is exerted on the microcapsules, the microcapsules will burst and 'colour' the cream.
I don't know if the CC cream blends well or leaves a white cast on darker skintones but from my judgement of the cream after blending, the cream is pretty light. 
It's a perfect fit on a NC15-NC20 skintone. 



The coverage of the CC cream is really sheer. You need to have pretty good skin (and maybe some photoshop) to begin with to look as flawless as the brand's muse ( F(x)'s Krystal) on the promo poster. 
A concealer is definitely needed to cover up redness, blemishes etc. It only brightens and slightly corrects the skintone.
A way to boost the coverage is to mix it with a BB cream in a 1:1 ratio. 

The finish is not a flat matte, it is a soft matte/ matte with some sheen.

The lasting power is average, it can last about 5-6 hours before noticeable fading
I do not have oily skin so I can't judge the oil-control power for this cream but it think it has a fair oil controlling power.

It is really light. It doesn't feel like there's anything on the face.

I would recommend a CC cream to people who have pretty good skin and doesn't need any coverage but wants to brighten or waken up their complexion.

People with minor skin problems can use it too with some concealer or boost the coverage up with mixing 1:1 ratio with a BB cream/foundation.

The product comes with 35g and it is priced at 14,000Won.

Full FOTD.
