Another sample based review today. And again it’s a BB cream. I try to get rid of my samples slowly to make room for new things, hehe. Okay, here we go: It’s Etude House’s Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit in shade No. 2 this time.
Again a beautiful sample package, typical for Etude House. It is very girly and pink and sweet *_*
This sample was part of my Keautybox I reviewed before (>>here<<).
I didn’t find much description about this one on Etude House official site, but this BB cream has first of all SPF 30 PA++ to protects your skin against UV rays. It contains pearl extract which prevents darkening of your skin. It is supposed to have good coverage for troubled skin and pores and should not look cakey after re-applying. Furthermore, it is paraben free, artificial colors free and benzophenone free. This all seems to be quite promising.
I’ll go straight forward: here is the swatch of the BB cream on my hand and afterwards I’ll show you how it looks on the face (I used Misshas Super Aqua Marine Stem Cell Cream before I put the BB cream):
This BB cream is more runny than Misshas Perfect Cover/Signature Complete BB creams or than Skin79 Hot Pink/Gold BB cream. It feels therefore very light. Nevertheless it has good coverage and provides really a nice finish. Cotton Fit is a nice term to describe exactly how it looks on the face. It’s not dewy but matte and I really like how it comes out at the end on my face. I had to touch up a little bit after some hours around my noise, because it started to wear up. But after a blotting paper and some powder on my nose I looked again like freshly maked up :D The scent is pleasant and sweet but not extreme. I just got it while directly sniffing at the cream. Since it has SPF 30 it gives a bit of a white cast while using flash photography, but in normal light it looks great and blends in perfectly. Thumbs up for this BB cream. I think I want the full size now :D
