Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit


BB2


When I went to Tokyo last December, I was lucky enough to be staying just a short walk away from Shinjuku Station, where they have some amazing stores. Etude House was one of those stores, much to my delight. If you check out my Tokyo Makeup Haul (which you can read about here) you'll see I wasn't shy about spending my cash in Etude House!

One thing I was super excited about trying whilst in Asia was BB creams! I'm not a big fan of the Western BB creams, as I find them far too oily for my skin. When I saw the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit, I knew I had to try it!

I had high hopes for this BB cream, as I tried it in store and was super impressed! The colour seemed to match me perfectly, and it wasn't even the lightest colour available! This one comes in a pump tube, which makes application pretty easy!

As you can see, the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream is pretty thick. Most BB creams I've tried in Australia were fairly thin and slippery, but this is more akin to foundation.

BB5

Blended in, you can see how light the colour is, and how decent the coverage is. This amount of foundation was just a little drop from the tube, so a little truly does go a long way! (Which is good news for me, since there doesn't seem to be a lot in the tube in comparison to other products I have, and I don't want to run out!)

As you can see from the comparison shots, the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream does give really amazing coverage, considering it is a BB cream! I find with most Western BB creams, I use them as a primer, however with this BB cream I can use it for full coverage! 

-- 

Overall, I was pretty darn pleased with this BB cream. I find it gives a really lovely finish, with medium to full coverage depending on your shade/skin type, and doesn't go oily or accentuate dry patches. Unfortunately I can't remember the exact price I paid for this, but on eBay it goes for a little over $20, which isn't really all that bad for such a fantastic product!

I have to say I'm finding Asian cosmetics to be far superior to Western products in terms of base products, so I'm excited to head back to Tokyo at the end of this year (hopefully) and buy heaps more!

Have you tried the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit before? If so, what are your thoughts? Do you prefer Asian BB creams to Western BB creams?

  2. The thing with Western BB creams is that a lot of brands are still just slapping the 'BB cream' label on basic tinted moisturizers to cash in on the Asian trend. I bought out from Olay and it was nothing but a tinted moisturizer. Absolutely zero coverage which is not what BB creams are. At the very least, a light coverage is needed.

    I saw Etude House in Tokyo too but since we already have Etude House here I had to resist shopping there!

    1. Yup you're so correct! The Western BB creams are just glorified tinted moisturisers! So frustrating! Etude House is so pretty though, how could you resist haha xx
