Etude House Precious Mineral Bright Fit BB Cream in W13

By 9/11/2015


Today I'm posting about Etude House's Bright Fit BB Cream. I've had this for more than a year now and it's still far from being empty. There have been new releases of Etude House BB creams of the same line, but back then I only had the option of getting Bright Fit or Cotton Fit. Cotton Fit as I remember is the one for oily skin, and which I should have gotten, but I was in love with the sample I got from Etude of this exact shade and variant which I have today.

Dang, I promised to get the Cotton Fit one when I run out of this, and one year and a half later I still haven't used this up.

Korean labeling
But you can understand that it has brightening properties and spf 30.
And to use it within 12 months :/

I use only half a pump for my entire face and another half for the neck that's why it still hasn't run out. Not to mention that I go with only using powder on some days when I don't have time to apply bb cream.

Half a pump is actually enough to even out the skin tone. I use my fingers to apply in a patting motion. That way, it doesn't look cakey and obvious on the face.


W13 looks slightly lighter than my skin but it could also just be the white cast because of the spf. As you can see on the swatch above, it evens out the tone pretty well and adds a subtle glow to it. The glow was the reason I chose Bright Fit over Cotton Fit, because I am not into extremely matte looks. This has proven to be a problem in the long run because I have extremely oily skin and the grease starts to show within a couple of hours. Oil sheets and powders help --- for now.

I think I would try next working from a matte base then adding highlighter to get the glow I am looking for. Might take more steps in the morning, but it would save me time from blotting the rest of the day.

Overall I like:
  • that it evens out my skin tone
  • gives a subtle glow
  • has a pump for easy and hygienic dispensing
  • has spf 30
  • has whitening, anti-darkening, and anti-aging properties
  • has enough product to last a long time
  • no distinguishable smell

What I don't like:
  • the white cast
  • makes me greasy (but that's my fault for choosing the wrong variant)
  • too bulky to carry when travelling

Repurchase?

Although I enjoy this BB cream, I will not buy this again. I will however scour though the new variants available at Etude House to find one that fits my skin type better. ;)

What are your favorite BB creams?
