Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Powder Fit {Video Review}

I was most pleasantly surprised when I tried out this BB cream. I had read really great things about it online, but reviews only go so far and I always worry about BB creams making my skin look ghostly pale. Luckily this is not the case for this BB cream. With a lovely powdery scent, and a wonderful powder finish, this BB cream has crept into my heart and my makeup table, finding it's way as a close contender for my favourite Klairs Supple Illuminating BB Cream

One thing (and it really is only a small gripe) is with the white tube. White and foundation don't go together vey well. I took these photographs after only using this BB cream once, and I got foundation smudges on the side of the tube. That's why my tube looks a little dirty. That problem is easily solved if you use a Foundation brush though!

Here is a little video review I made of this product, as well as a quick tutorial showing you how I made up my face after using the Precious Mineral Cotton Fit BB cream.

You get 60g of product in each tube, so it's going to last you a long, long time. As you can see, the easy to use dispenser gives you just enough product for an even application. In the photographs below you can see just how seamlessly the product glides into my skin.

I would say one layer will give you medium coverage, but this BB cream is very build-able. One more pump and you would have a high coverage foundation with all the other great properties of BB creams (sun protection, moisture & cover).

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit Review

The Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit only comes in 3 shades; 

No. 2 Light Beige

No. 13 Natural Beige

No.25 Honey Beige

I chose the middle shade, Natural Beige and it's perfect for my Olive skin. It is currently winter here in Korea and my skintone has faded slightly, but I am usually MAC NW 25.

Have you tried this BB cream before? What did you think? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.

Everyday Makeup Look Tutorial With Light Smokey Eye & Bright Lip (Video Tutorial)

Korean Beauty Products Everyday makeup look

I've been on my video game lately, having published two Youtube videos in one week! I'm feeling very inspired to continue making videos, so If there is anything in particular you'd like to see (beauty, lifestyle, life in Korea, more of my rescue pup!) let me know in the comments below. Also, I would so appreciate it if you could take a moment to subscribe to my channel by clicking here...thank you!

Today's post is an everyday makeup tutorial with a very light smokey eye and a bright lip thrown into the mix. This is my everyday makeup look that I wear to work here in Korea and it really doesn't take long to apply. I won't always wear face & eye primer, it depends on whether I remember to apply it and I don't wear eye liner everyday but since I found these 101 Play Eyeliners from Etude House, I wear eye liner more often. They are just so easy to use and are super long lasting.

Enjoy! x

I absolutely love the Innisfree Colour Glow lipstick featured at the end of the video (click here for a full review), it has such an amazing creamy texture and glides onto your lips so effortlessly. You don't need to fuss with putting it on, it just goes on where it's supposed to. I do wish it lasted longer, but that's the problem with creamier lipsticks. I don't mind reapplying it throughout the day though, its easy enough that you don't even need a mirror!

Here are full reviews of the products mentioned in the video. Just click on each image to see the full review.
