Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur Review + Swatch
Here's a review on Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur.
Other Locations: Available in all Etude House boutiques and counters
I think the ever famous SELFIE will cement itself as one of the most popular types of photography in history. First, it was registered as a formal term and now, it has spawned a new kind of makeup product called Blur Cream; I can't imagine what it will inspire next!
Blur Cream was invented to act as real life filter for glorious selfies because tweaking photos and finding the right filters take loads of time: just apply it, set it, and take your selfie. Even if you're not buying into this trend, you will still benefit from Blur Cream because it gives you smoother- looking skin by concealing pores and roughness. Etude House has one and it's Beauty Shot Face Blur; aside from being a blurring cream, it acts as a good primer too. Cool!
ETUDE HOUSE BEAUTY SHOT FACE BLUR IN DETAIL
Claims to act as a 'filter' for your skin and make it selfie- ready, this blur cream contains Baby Pixel Powder/Blur Powder that make skin smooth by covering pores. Cover Powder hides skin imperfections and diffuses light on the skin. Airy Skin Powder controls sebum. It comes in one shade only.
Product comes with a pump dispenser; it pumps out the cream erratically though. Would advise that you hold it away from your clothes when using because the pump spouts the product out!
Consistency is a creamy liquid with a slight powdery scent; it smells nice, actually. It has a white-pink tint, which makes it a corrector as well on top of being a blur cream and primer. Coverage is sheer to light and it sets into a demi-matte finish.
ETUDE HOUSE BEAUTY SHOT FACE BLUR IN ACTION
Face with Shiseido Perfect Stick Concealer and a layer of Face Blur
Once it sets (which will only take about a few seconds), it feels semi- matte, but leaves a radiant payoff. This payoff projects through any face base, surprisingly and that's a good thing; you can skip highlighter with this product. It really does smooth the skin and make it appear plump and even. My minor issues with it are payoff is streaky and it tends to highlight dry patches.
Here's a close- up of my face with Face Blur to give you an idea of its blurring promise. It does blur out a few imperfections, but not all. I find that it works really well in filling up enlarged pores. Look at the tip of my nose-it's almost poreless! :D
Set with Max Factor Creme Puff
You can treat Face Blur as a base or as a primer, whichever floats your boat. Personally, I treat it as a standalone base because its consistency may feel a bit thick at times for my combination skin; I just pair it off with a heavy duty powder foundation to get that liquid foundation finish. Look how smooth my skin is in this photo! :)
I got even more impressed with this product because of its staying power: it kept my T-Zone oil- free for about 5 hours and sebum only gradually seeped through by the 6th hour; it kept the rest of my face fresh and normal.
Overall, this is a pretty cool product: blurs imperfections, keeps you practically oil- free, and makes skin look a bit radiant. It's basically a Selfie secret. I'm not so much into selfies, but I'd love to have this in my stash as one of my primers because it's got good oil control!
