My Favourite BB cream so far: Etude Precious Minerals Bright Fit BB cream

I had pretty rough week but more about that in my next post. In this post I'm going to tell you about the BB cream I have been using a lot these past few months! 

It's the Etude House Precious Minerals Bright Fit BB cream in the shade Natural Beige! (Is it just me or the longer the name of the BB cream, the better it is? Lol!) 
I wanted to do a review for this BB cream before I went to Chandigarh but decided against it because I wanted to see how it fared in the dry climate there.

The Precious Minerals Bright Fit BB cream was sent to me by Taisoon from Two Face Mall, a great place to buy Korean makeup! 
Taisoon is really nice and she's been very understanding about the fact that it took me so long to post this review!  couldn't help it! I wanted to be as thorough as I could for you guys! ♥

Thanks Two Face Mall! And sorry for my late review! ^_^'

About Two Face Mall:

Two Face Mall is a Korean skincare and makeup store based in Korea. It stocks not only some very popular brands of cosmetics but also has great deals and discounts like:

  • Free Shipping with tracking!
  • $5 off on signing up
  • Free Skinfood Avocado lip balm on purchase 
The store also has a new "Buying Service":
The customer gives the details of the products and their own contact and address details, the store gives them an expected price on the products, the customer pays and the "buying" proceeds. 
So you can find any products you fancy, ask for a price and get them delivered to you! A great way of finding products that are new or not yet available online outside of Korea!

Their prices may seem a bit higher than other sites but they offer s lot of extras which makes up for it! Including the registered shipping!

Now on to the review!

What Etude House says:
Zero Oil! Coverage Up! Longer Lasting!
Keep your dazzling looking skin all day like a precious pearl.

BB Cream formulated with Pearl Powder with an improved adhesive texture to promote moist, radiant looking skin while protecting against UV damage and wrinkles.

Shades available:
#1 Light Beige, #2 Natural Beige, #3 Honey Beige, #4 Sand Beige
(I've swatched the first three for you guys! ^_^)

$17.50 on Two Face Mall 


The BB cream comes in a 60g tube. Like most Etude products the box and tube look very princessy and pretty! I love looking at the box sitting on my dresser. 

The tube has a pump mechanism and you have to store it upside down. This pump is really great! 
Non- messy and I can dispense just the right amount of cream! So, no wastage. :D

There is just one small problem I have with the packaging. It's stupid but the tube has the colour written only in Korean and in very small letters! Lol! I can read Korean but on the go, it is difficult to find which one I want, especially since my sister recently bought a tube and her colour is different from mine.
Because of this, we keep the boxes, they show the shades on the the top flap. Thank Heavens! >.<

Colour, Smell and Texture:
This Bright it BB cream is an upgrade from before, the older one had only two not very "Indian skin friendly" colours. But with the 2012 upgrade they have definitely managed to make a lot of shades to suit many skin tones! 4 shades is more than most BB creams ever have! 
I'm pretty pleased that Etude had the foresight to see that many women couldn't use their products due to the lack of shdes. I hope other brands pick up from them!

#1 Light Beige, #2 Natural Beige, #3 Honey Beige

The texture of the BB cream is quite liquid unlike the BRTC Gold Caviar cream. It melts into the skin well and blends easily. It has a matte finish but also adds a slight glow.
The smell is like a floral talcum powder. I don't mind it! :)

The Bright Fit Precious Minerals BB cream does a lot of what it promises. It has a lovely finish, what one would call "matte but not flat." My shade is Natural Beige which is slightly lighter at first but oxidises to match my skin perfectly.
The BB cream fills pores quite effectively, this isn't promised by Etude, just something I noticed and LOVE. 
It covers redness well and covers dark spots effectively too! I also like the fact that it has SPF 30 sunscreen! Yay! 
Only BB cream, no concealer or powder

In the more humid Mumbai weather you do need to powder, but I like to powder just my T-zone because it gives my cheeks a lovely dewy glow.
In Chandigarh I had much drier skin and had to moisturise before applying this BB cream. Otherwise it looked pretty chalky! 
So, beware if you have really dry skin! If you have oily skin, you will love this stuff! Both my sister and I love this BB cream and haven't experienced any break outs! >w< ♥

No skin photoshopping! :D All BB cream and a little concealer.

Lasting Power:
Lets just say, sweat all you want, you come home all gross and oily but you will still have the BB cream coverage! And when I cleanse it off and wash my face, my face looks brighter! :D A big plus!

If you have oily, dull and spotty skin, this BB cream could be a savior for you! It has a nice semi-matte finish, even at the end of a long day, it stays on and makes your skin brighter. So go for it! 
If you have dry skin though, be careful, it might be too drying for you!

Definitely a BB cream I will keep buying! Will you be trying it? 

I also wanted to say that this is my first review using my new camera! The colours came out really accurate! >u<
Hope you enjoyed the pics!
