Etude House Precious Mineral Blooming Fit BB Cream W13 and Perfect Fit BB Cream N02 Review + Swatches
Here's a review on Etude House Precious Mineral Blooming Fit BB Cream in W13 (Natural Beige) and Perfect Fit BB Cream in N02 (Light Beige).
Bought From: Free
Available In: All Etude House stores
It's been a year and in my opinion, the promising CC Cream had never caught up with the popularity of BB Creams at least here in the Philippines-the latter still remains popular! It will take something else-I don't know, maybe a tweak in the formula, performance, and finish, perhaps?-for Filipinas to slowly transition to CC Cream because at the moment, it isn't a far cry from the good ol' BB.
Anyway, I'm reviewing two popular BB Creams from Etude House called Precious Mineral Blooming Fit BB Cream in W13 and Precious Mineral Perfect Fit BB Cream in N02. Maybe this will come handy if you're looking for new BB Creams to try for this year!
ETUDE HOUSE PRECIOUS MINERAL BLOOMING FIT N02 AND PRECIOUS MINERAL PERFECT FIT W13 IN DETAIL
Precious Mineral is Etude House best- selling line of face bases. In this line, you'll find these two variants, the Precious Mineral BB Any Cushion Color Correctors and Precious Mineral Any Cushion BB Creams, Precious Mineral Bright Fit BB Cream, Precious Mineral Cotton Fit BB Cream, and a couple of primers. Precious Mineral is formulated with minerals that brighten and lighten the complexion, protect skin from the sun, and anti- aging ingredients. These BB Creams that I am about to review come in three shades, respectively.
Cotton Fit, Perfect Fit, Blooming Fit, Bright Fit-are these simply Etude House's cute ways to call these BB Creams or do they really mean anything? Surprise, surprise-it's the latter! I found out recently through Andrea Amado, president of AGC, the distributors of Etude House in the Philippines that these names differentiate the overall finish and performance of these BB Creams (aside from being cute ways to call a makeup product)!
How do you know which one suits you?
Perfect Fit- full, foundation- like coverage, perfect for any skin type
Blooming Fit- sheer to medium coverage, perfect for Normal and Dry Skin
Cotton Fit- matte, perfect for oily skin
Bright Fit- dewy, hydrating finish, perfect for Normal and Dry Skin
Now that's something new! :D
The BB Creams come in a tube with a pump dispenser. I also like that the tubes can stand on their own!
Ingredients: Left, Perfect Fit; Right, Blooming Fit
Swatches and my full review after the break!
Perfect Fit N02 is a very light beige with a neutral undertone and Blooming Fit W13 is a fair beige shade with a yellow undertone. The Precious Mineral BB Creams are friendlier to fairer skin tones and it's a sad story for morenas like me. :p
Both products have a very emollient yet lightweight consistency and a very light floral scent, but have a different finish and coverage: Perfect Fit has medium to heavy coverage with a semi- matte finish while Blooming Fit has sheer to medium coverage with a dewy finish.
ETUDE HOUSE PRECIOUS MINERAL BLOOMING FIT W13 NATURAL BEIGE AND PRECIOUS MINERAL PERFECT FIT N02 LIGHT BEIGE IN ACTION
One layer of Blooming Fit BB Cream W13 Natural Beige
It can cover light to medium marks and to some extent, small face bumps-it can even give the illusion of a poreless complexion plus I like that it spreads out evenly and manages to look even even with minimal blending. Finish is semi- matte with a hint of dewiness.
BB Cream set with Canmake Marshmallow Powder
Blooming Fit looks so pretty under natural lighting and in photos taken during daytime (but not in flash photography because of the high SPF content). If you find a match in the available shades, you're in for some luck, but if you don't, you'd have to keep in hand a shade- matching powder or bronzer to tame down the white cast. It still looks pretty on any skintone it's on regardless! Staying power is okay, but oil control is very minimal.
Tip: Got morena skin? You can use this as a concealer or liquid highlighter instead!
One layer of Perfect Fit BB Cream N02 Light Beige
This BB Cream has a nice brightening effect on the skin sans shimmer and can even pass off as foundation due to its full- on coverage, but it's too light and quite streaky. Finish is dewy. Was surprised to know that for a BB Cream that promises foundation- like coverage, it cannot minimize the appearance of small face bumps very well.
BB Cream set with The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Angel Skin Powder Pact
Ah, the magic of good pressed powders! :D Anyway, this product, I use when on casual days likes picking up groceries, lounging in coffee shops, or meeting the BF for a quick dinner. Between Blooming Fit and this, this one is the most emollient, which makes it perfect for dry skin, but it has no oil control and even causes my face to oil up for a wee bit more when the weather is warm and humid.
Given the information on these BB Creams that I have provided at the beginning of this post, I think they're okay just as long as you choose the one that's right for your skin type. In terms of performance, quality, and finish, Blooming Fit brings home the bacon. I wish to try Cotton Fit in the near future as I think it'll suit my skin type best.
