[REVIEW] Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream (Cotton Fit #W13)

Hello dears ~ How's life treating you? I started my internship at a clothing store on Monday ~ I've been super busy that I haven't had time to even turn on the power on laptop... Today I have a little time to finish off this review for you ^^ So what am I reviewing today?

Tadah! It's Precious Mineral BB Cream from Etude House ~ This one is Cotton Fit version and in a shade W13 Natural Beige. I took the photos for this post in August and now it's almost November... Anyhow! Read more to see how I liked this BB Cream ~


 DESCRIPTION 
This all-day pearly bright skin BB Cream perfectly glides onto skin providing clear and bright complexion with a smooth, cotton-like powdery finish for flawless skin. 
Shade options: 01. Light Beige, 02. Natural Beige, 03. Honey Beige
Taken from Etude House online store

So, there are three shades. Based on pictures, Honey Beige will suit tanned skin really well, so if you're more tanned than I am, you might want to try that shade :) On the Etude House online store site you'll see the ingredient lists for all three shades, which is pretty awesome, for those who understands the lists... :D

After quickly checking the list I can see there is talc in this BB Cream... So make sure to remove all the make up and wash your face really well before going to bed. Products that has talc tends to clog my pores :// There's also pearl extract, beeswax, glycerin and many other extracts and stuff inside. No alcohol as far as I can understand.

 PACKAGING 

I absolutely adore the sample version packaging ~ It looks fluffy, just like cotton XD The full sized version doesn't look as cute but it's still good looking. 

 WHERE TO BUY 

You can buy the full sized product for example from Cosmetic Love or Etude House online store. The full product is 60g and it costs 15-16$ depending where you buy it.

 SCENT & TEXTURE 

The scent is nice ~ Typical Etude House; a bit artificial, flower-ish, pleasant scent :D The texture is creamy, so a little amount goes long way ! It has a semi-matte finish and it's pretty easy to blend with sponge.

Below you can see the swatch on my hand (taken on direct daylight from 2 different angles). You can see how the BB Cream blends in really well :)



 COVERAGE 

I didn't do a cover test this time, so we're going straight to see how the product looks on my face :D It evens out my skin tone, covers up some imperfections and it has a slightly powdery finish to it. 


 WHEN WORN 

I think it looks pretty nice :) It gives a natural, healthy looking skin :D I like that ~ It instantly brightened my skin and covered some dark circles.


 OIL TEST 

I didn't do an oil test this time either ~ Below is how my face looked after 7 hours with just the BB Cream on my face :D Didn't use oil blotting sheets or powder at all. As I mentioned in the beginning of the post, I took the photos in August when it was still hot and humid summer. I'd say this will work really well if you have a mixed-oily skin like I have.


 SUMMARY 

+ Nice scent
+ Evens out the skin tone and brightens the face while covering pretty well
+ Gives a nice, healthy looking skin
+ Semi-matte finish, pretty easy to blend with sponge
+ Has three shade options :)
+ Works well for mixed-oily skin type

- Contains talc which usually clogs up my pores :/

 RATING: 4/5  Would I buy the full sized product? I think I would. At least few more samples to try out if this clogs my pores or not.

That's it for now ~ Have you tried this BB Cream? How did you like it? I'm also going to be reviewing Blooming Fit and Bright Fit so wait for those ^^ Now I'm going to head to shower and then go to sleep. Tomorrow is Friday which means I can relax during the weekend ^^ Bye bye lovelies ~
