AMW Reviews: Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit

Happy Friday!  Kung Hei Fat Choi!  It's Chinese New Year so I"m wishing everyone good health, fortune and happiness!  For a "brighter" Year of the Horse, I will be reviewing one of the most requested BB Cream review based from my poll on AskMeWhats Facebook Page!

Though I've found "The one" when it comes to BB Cream, I can't help but got intrigued when there were more than 3 requests for me to review this BB Cream!  Without any thoughts, I visited Etude House Market Market branch and swatched all 4 shades and ended up with Natural Beige shade which is a perfect BB Cream shade for my skin tone!



Etude House says ---
Pomotes silky complexion with pearl infused sheer coverage. Contains adenosine and arbutin for anti-wrinkle and whitening efficacies. Also features SPF30 / PA++ UV protection & anti-darkening. Formulated for Sheer Silky complexion coverage! 


Available in four shades: N02 Light Beige W13 Natural Beige W24 Honey Beige W15 Sand Beige

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Packaging!  I love that it is a squeeze type tube WITH pump!
  • Hint of floral scent upon application that goes away within minutes.
  • Creamy, spreads easily.
  • Very lightweight.  
  • Non-drying on very dry skin.
  • Does not appear oily.
  • Has a matte finish but the effect is bright and glow-y.  (Hope this statement does not confuse you)
  • Has a decent amount of light-medium light coverage.  Helps even out the skin.
  • 4 shades to choose from, which is a lot for a BB Cream.
  • SPF30 but no white cast if you picked the right shade.
  • Skin looks very natural.
  • No skin irritations.
  • My skin looks very healthy!
Cons
  • Won't cover up skin discoloration, acne marks or dark spots.
  • Very oily skin users may still need to blot midday as oil-control of this BB cream isn't that strong.
Neutral
  • Works really well but other BB creams can do the same + more benefits.
Overall
Bright Fit definitely FITS the name of this BB Cream.  Applying a thin layer gives a very natural look with the added "healthy glow".  This BB Cream from Etude House gives a decent amount of coverage and can even out the skin without looking cake-y.

Tips
  • Apply using dotting method.  (Dot BB cream on all areas of the face before you blend it out with clean fingers.)
  • To prevent "fingerprints" all over face, finish off by patting your face with a clean sponge after application.
  • Test different tools to see which application method works for you.  I prefer using fingers when it comes to BB creams.
  • 1 pump is enough for a very natural look with very light coverage.
  • 2 pumps for light-medium coverage. 
  • If you have good skin, apply Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit and use a bit of concealer and set with a translucent powder for a very natural look.
  • For added coverage, pick your favorite liquid foundation and mix with a half pump to 1 pump of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream to create a subtle healthy glow.
  • If you worry about your skin looking oily, use Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit as a highlighter, apply this BB cream only on key areas that you want to "pop" or highlight.
  • If you have large pores, apply this BB cream in a patting motion.
Will I repurchase?
I still have a lot of BB creams to finish up but this one isn't bad at all! 

To whom do I recommend this to?
Works best for normal, dry and combination skin.  Oily skin can still enjoy the benefits of healthy glow minus oiliness

Where to purchase and how much?
At Etude House stores for Php798.00 (approx $18.55).

Etude House BB Cream Packaging
I really enjoy this packaging!  I feel this is the best packaging for BB creams!

A pump of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit
 in Natural Beige W13

The texture is semi-liquid/cream making this product easy to apply and blend.
This full 1 pump is enough for my whole face and neck!

W13 Natural Beige blends into my skin perfectly!
This BB cream does not enhance lines and large pores.


Applied Natural Beige on my face.
Again, this shade matches my NC25 skin perfectly!

Before and After
Redness disappeared but the effect is very natural, like I have naturally perfect skin! *tee hee*

Half Face Test
As seen on the photo below, the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream evens out my skin and gives a really bright and healthy effect!  In person, my skin is glowing!  I receive compliments on how healthy my skin look every time I wear this BB Cream.  (Oh no, secret revealed!)

How do you find this BB Cream?
Will you purchase this or do you think coverage is too light for you?

Thank you dear readers for telling me about this BB cream, I am actually looking into "Korean Glow" kind of makeup lately!  I will even create the most requested "Korean Skin Makeup" look!  Keep pushing me to create more looks!  *lol*  Baby AMW is taking up too much of my time!  hahaha

  4. Hi Nikki! Which brand of BB creams are you swearing by for personal use? :)
    For the longest time I have been wanting to try BB creams but still can't decide which brand should I buy. I have quite dry skin and I want to make it dewy and glowy. :) Which brand of BB cream do you recommend? :)

    1. I personally use Fairy Drops and Skin79 VIP gold! Try searching for "BB Creams" on my blog and you'll find all the BB creams review I've tried :)

      for dewy and glowy, go for Fairy Drops and Etude house also have a dewy (glowy) bb cream, I tested it out in store and it is indeed very dewy! :D

  5. Actually BB Cream has two choices now one fro dry skin and for the oily one, I use the one for oily skin, though I currently stop using it but not because it's not good, I even repurchase a new when it was almost empty but, my skin is kind of darkening when I put BB cream so I stick on CC Cream perhaps can you do a review of other Korean Cosmetics, I am a Korean Product lover most of my cosmetics are from Etude, can you make reviews for product like from Tony Moly or The Face Shop

    1. Thanks for sharing ! I'm glad to know they have one for Oily and one for normal/dry skin! :) Sure, I have loads of requests for Korean cosmetics and I will definitely try and purchase more! And give me time as it takes me forever to really try the products!
      Do you have any particular request? Like which particular product from Tony Moly or The Face Shop that you would want me to try? It's easier that way rather than me going around store not knowing what to purchase :D
