Review: Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence-In Foundation SPF 22/PA++

I'm not really a foundie-type-of-girl because it feels really thick and if used in a rush, it tends to give a cakey finish. I like tinted moisturizers of BB creams better than foundations for every day use. However, I discovered this product from Etude House and have been using it daily ever since. 

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence-In Foundation #2 Natural Beige
Moistfull Collagen Essence-In Foundation is an essence infused moist foundation that supplies enduring coverage and collagen to strengthen derma integrity and improve look.

How I Use It
I squirt two pumps on the back of my hand. With a cosmetic sponge, I dab it on my face and blend evenly. 

What I Like About It
  • The packaging is so lovely and adorable, with a theme of purple and light pink color. I can't resist it!
  • It has a pump which makes it really easy to dispense the correct amount of product.
  • Texture is slightly watery, like a lotion, which makes the product so easy to blend.
  • It feels like a tinted moisturizer, but has coverage like a foundation. 
  • There is a slight hint of floral scent, but it goes away almost immediately after blended.
  • The shade matches me perfectly! It's not too ghastly white nor is it too dark for me!
  • It doesn't accentuate my dry patches on the edge of my nose and mouth
  • It gives a natural semi matte finish that doesn't make my face look dull because of the matte-ness~
  • Doesn't break me out~!

What I Hate About It
  • The price is unreasonably expensive if it's purchased in the EH counters at the mall compared to buying them online. >.<
  • There's only two shades as it is an Asian brand where shade selection is very very limited
I highly recommend this to people with dry to normal skin because this will give enough moisture to hide those dry, flaky skin. I would definitely rethink if I have oily skin, as this will probably give excess moisture to an already oily skin. 

Shade #2 Natural Beige
Spread thinly over
Blended beautifully into my skin!
If you want a natural looking, lightweight foundation with medium coverage, then this is the product for you!

Eight and a half out of ten


  1. my face is oily . but i think people's commens about collagen moistful fondation is better than BB CREAM. BUt bb cream has type for oily skin, and COLLAGEN doesnt. so what do you think ? which one should i buy?

  2. I have a combination skin, oily between my T-zone, and i've been using this foundation and Etude Precious BB Cream. To be honest i love this foundation a lot ! it doesnt break me out and give me more natural looking than the Prcious BB. If you doesnt have the acne prone skin maybe you should give this one a try :)
