[ETUDE HOUSE] Dream On Pact Slim & Cover *Light Beige*

I used already some different powder pacts and till now I always liked the ones from [ETUDE HOUSE]. When I got the Precious Mineral BB COMPACT back in 2011/ 2012 I also received the Dream On Pact Slim & Cover. As far as I know this product is already discontinued but I still wanna write a short review about it.

The Dream On Pact is or was available in 3 different shades of beige - I got the brightest one: #1 Light Beige. From the same product line were also available some bases, a foundation and a loose powder.

Description: The Secret to Dreamy Bright Complexion. Compact Powder makeup maintains sheer, oil absorbing texture for radiant coverage with UV protection. Contains hyaluronic acid and encapsulated oil control powder to smooth, moisturize and nourish complexion.
The outer packaging and the cute designed powder case are kept in a pearly pink
The outer packaging got the description in English and Korean on it. 
The powder case contains 0.47 oz. (14g) of the pressed powder and comes with a mirror and a sponge.
The powder contains ingredients such as Talc, Mica, Silica, Zinc Oxide, Ultramarines, Alcohol, Fragrance and more.
#1 Light Beige is the right color for those with rather pale skin. I didn't notice a strong scent but the coverage is good. Anyway, a better coverage than the face powders from the Dr. OIL SOLUTION or the SHINI STAR line.
I still don't get why it's called "Slim & Cover", though.
I like the Dream On Pact, not only because of its good coverage but also because it keeps my skin matte for a few hours. On the other side I noticed some breakouts the first times but I'm not really sure if it's the powders fault.
I can recommend this powder pact to people with normal or combination skin!
How to use: Use puff to gather and apply pressed powder to cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. Gently pat to finish.

Price: around 10,- €/ US$14 
Bought at: eBay (zinopark) 

What I love:
The pretty design and good coverage. 

What I don’t like:
I got some breakouts! Not sure if it came from the powder, though.

Will I buy this again? It's already discontinued and I will try out other pacts.


  1. It has such a cute packaging! I wonder why they discontinued it. Sad to hear it made you breakout! It even has good coverage :(
    nice review!

  2. So cute!!
    I wanted to try the Lioele one for Oily Skin.
    It's a shame that this one is out already :<

    1. I never tried Lioele's products except of some BB cream samples. =/ Which powder do you mean?

  3. Really interesting product but the breakout thing makes me doubt. I'm thinking about purchasing Holika Holika's Oil Queen Cotton Pact to see how it works. Thanks for the review.


    1. I have Holika Holika's Oil Queen Cotton Pact. =) Will write a review when I got the Makeup Fixing Spray.
      Btw, the Oil Queen Cotton Pact is just a white powder - not beige.

  4. Really interesting this powder pack, looks really cute the packaging but I don´t luck with the products from Etude house of makeup. Usually when I put on my face looks oily and that is really bad. but many thanks for the review.


  5. I've never tried Holika Holika! I love Korean and Japanese packaging! Great post!
