Remember when I use to say that I prefer foundations over BB Creams because I prefer more coverage? Well, recently I've tried pretty good BB creams that give satisfying coverage and the one I'll be sharing today is one of my latest discoveries...
Etude House Precious Mineral Perfect Fit BB Cream
The packaging is in a simple but cute tube with a pump dispenser.
I really like that when it comes to BB Creams, even liquid foundations actually, because this is more hygienic and easier to get the product out. I can also cut the tube when I'm almost finished with it so I can scoop out the remaining BB cream.
This BB Cream comes in three shades and the one I got is the middle shade—Natural Beige.
This is how the product looks like
The scent is really pleasant and mild. You'll barely notice it after the minute you applied it.
Consistency is thin and very easy to spread. The shade is warm but I think this isn't yellow enough for my skin. I've tried a different shade from EH that suits my skin more.
This is how it looks when blended.
As you can see, it gives an almost matte finish. It still leaves a little dewiness to it to make the skin look natural.
Above are my photos before and after application
As you can see, it perfectly covers redness and most of my scars... BUT you can still spot the dark ones so I guess the product description is wrong for claiming that it can perfectly cover imperfections. Haha! But I really like the coverage! I'm actually impressed that a product that feels so light on skin can cover my blemishes so well.
I usually apply this after my skin care and primer. I top it off with powder to prolong the makeup and to lengthen the time before my face becomes shiny. It can last pretty much the whole day but it doesn't really help with oil control so it is a must for me to blot and retouch powder every three to four hours or so.
So here's a summary of my review:
What I LIKE:
- Medium coverage
- Has SPF30 and PA++
- Pleasant scent
- Locally available
- Sort of affordable
- Feels light on skin
- Easy to spread and blend
- Love the semi-matte finish
What I DON'T LIKE:
- Only comes in three shades. Actually, that's already good since most BB creams only has two, even one shade. It's just that I think that those with darker skin tones won't be able to appreciate this because the darkest shade is actually close to my skin color already.
- No oil control. It never claimed that it did but I do appreciate a product that gives that property. :P
Overall, this is a good BB cream and I do recommend you to try this especially if you're looking for a BB that gives good coverage.
Have you tried this product yet? Which Etude House BB cream do you like the most? :)
