Review: Ettusais Premium Amino Essence Foundation

Last year, as summer was nearing to an end, I was roaming through the aisles of a beauty shop and chanced upon this. I decided to give this one a try despite being uncertain whether the shade would look fine on me or not because of the good experience I’ve been having with one of their products. It’s been almost a year now since I started putting this on my acne-prone skin. Now is definitely time for me to share my experience with this Japanese product.

review ettusais premium amino essence foundation
Shade: 30, SRP: 2,300 yen (excluding tax), 30ml

Apparently, number 30 seemed to be the darkest shade so I went for it.


  1. Contains 72% of cosmetic liquid ingredients and provides moisture 
  2. Covers large pores, evens out skin tone, and corrects dullness
  3. With the new composition, it gives thin film cover & long-lasting moisture.
  4. With SPF 25 PA + +
  5. Has 3 color variations: 10, 20, 30
  6. Made in Japan


  1. Paraben-free
  2. With UV protection
  3. Most of the time, I only use one pump of it and doesn’t feel heavy.
  4. Doesn’t trigger pimples.
  5. Not sticky
  6. No chemical-like scent
  7. Dries up quickly but blendable using a sponge. I use the dry one.
  8. Coverage is light which I prefer.
  9. Because I don’t use a lot, it only covers pores and scars a bit, but it tones up my skin.
  10. It does make my skin feel moisturized.


  1. The shade looks a bit lighter on me. So I just top it with a powder in a darker shade.ettusais premium amino essence foundation swatch
  2. Without the powder, it would look grayish on me because I think it has a pinkish tone. Also, it creases if not set with a powder.

3. A little pricey for me.
4. It’s not transfer-proof.
5. It doesn’t stay long especially when I sweat.

I reckon that the shades fit those who have a pink undertone and less textured skin. During the long cold days, this foundation is good for me in terms of durability. Now that the weather’s getting warm, I suppose I should get a different one.
