One of my purchases in Singapore, the Princess Happy Ending version of Etude House’s Precious Mineral BB Cream in Blooming Fit N02. It contains pearl extracts for brightening, bamboo extract for skin care and a slim fit formula to be comfortable for all day wear. It is also SPF30 and PA++ which is a nice plus. I was mostly won over by the packaging but also because I liked the BB cushion that Etude House sell. Continue on to see a review of this item and a comparison with my other BB Cream, Missha Perfect Cover in #13.
Like the other Disney items in this collection, the packaging was an adorable storybook theme with pictures referencing Snow White.
The tube itself continues the theme and it’s just so pretty! I’m just happy to see it in my collection to be honest. It’s so pretty and I am a huge Disney fan!
The end of the tube comes with a pump for easy dispensing. The pump also has a lid, so don’t worry about that lol.
As you can see from a pump onto my hand, the cream is actually more of a liquid. It’s very runny.
That amount covered my whole hand pretty easily lol. It doesn’t take very long to spread with fingers since it’s so runny. Also because of this texture it doesn’t go on too heavily and you don’t need as much to cover a whole area.
You can see here on a hand with and without how it covers my blue veins, pinkness and freckles. Although I prefer to keep the freckles showing.
I think when I apply to my face it looks a lot better than on my hand pictured. The key is the application, so I use a beauty blender sponge that’s been dampened rather than with my fingers as pictured above. The look is a lot less cakey and the glow of the BB cream comes through. I do find that since it’s so liquidy you have to use at least 2 pumps to get full coverage.
Now let’s compare with my other BB cream, Missha’s Perfect Cover in No.13 which is their lightest shade. They have similar designs with a pump on the bottom, though Missha’s is a pretty gold. I think Etude Houses’s design would have been perfect if their pump was red or silver. Though I suppose it can be black for her hair? ;)
Here you can see the texture difference them. Missha’s is much more of a thick cream. The colour is also less yellow and a bit lighter.
Though when both buffed in there isn’t much a difference. Though I think the Missha is more noticeably settling into the lines in my hands, can you see it? I think it’s because the texture of the Missha Perfect Cover is thicker.
Overall, I do like both of these BB creams but I’m enjoying using the Etude House one right now, especially in this heat and sun that we are having in my city.
The only thing I would recommend if going with this BB cream is to use a light layer of face powder over the top since it never seems to completely dry which is great for a dewy finish but can be a little annoying if you touch your face. Powder fixes it perfectly though.
