The second BB cream I shall review is ‘Cotton Fit’. This version is the only one in this line with a non-dewy finish. ‘Cotton Fit’ has a much drier texture than the other two, and sets to a semi-matte, velvety finish. I found that this had a thicker consistency than the other two, and was much harder to spread and blend. Here’s a swatch on the inside of my arm:
‘Cotton Fit’ was not very similar to my skin tone. It was the darkest of the three, and didn’t look very natural because of it. I am very pale though, so it shouldn’t be an issue for most people.
One thing I found pretty odd with these BB Creams is that despite buying them all in the one shade (No.2), they didn’t swatch as the same colour. That didn’t bother me too much though, as the difference is fairly subtle.
This BB Cream had a semi-matte finish, so it would be more suitable for those with oily skin. As someone with dry, often flaky skin, I did find that is accentuated my dry patches, and dried them out further. I wouldn’t recommend this to people with dry skin, but it would be perfect if you have oily to combination skin.
The coverage that ‘Cotton Fit’ gave was quite good. It covered the redness on my nose and cheeks nicely, as well as any minor imperfections. For larger blemishes, some concealer is needed.
Over All Rating: 8/10
Pros: Long-lasting, semi-matte, good oil control.
Cons: Dries out my skin, hard to blend.
Repurchase? No, but mainly because it’s not suited to my skin type.
Last, but most certainly not least, I will review ‘Perfect Fit’! This was my favorite out of the three, it’s perfect! This BB Cream has a slightly dewy finish – just enough to look ‘glowing’ without out being shiny. The consistency was somewhere between the other two; smooth and creamy, but not watery or too dry. You can see a swatch of it here:
‘Perfect Fit’ was the lightest of the three in colour, which is exactly what my super pale face needs. I found that this one was really good at making my skin look brighter. It doesn’t look whiter, just fresher and more awake. ‘Perfect Fit’ definitely has better coverage than the other two. Wearing it alone, not only is all my redness is covered, but it conceals blemishes too! I had no need to use a concealer at all when using this product – It’s great!
Over All Rating: 9.5/10
Pros: Great coverage, brightening, natural finish, long-lasting.
Cons: I genuinely don’t have anything I dislike about this one!
Repurchase? YES! In fact, I Already have! I use it everyday, and it’s become my go-to product.
So! There is my review for the three Etude House Precious Mineral BB Creams! I have to say, I was incredibly impressed with the amazing quality of their products, especially considering the super cheap prices Etude House have.
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you thought!
