Make Up And Hair (MUAH) - Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit in Honey Beige

by - July 29, 2016

It has been a tough 3 days for me.  I've been so overwhelmed by the length of my to-do list, I had a fever yet still working on the list and I got a sad news.  My dearest grandfather passed away at the age of 94.

He's very close to our hearts and we will never ever forget his smile, positivity, life lessons and jokes.  We miss you, Lolo.

I don't want to really grieve because I know Lolo wouldn't like to see us like that.  Good thing, my truckload of things-to-do diverts my thoughts somehow.

Sooooooo, life continues.

Here's one face makeup that I would recommend to those who have dry skin.  Unfortunately, for me who has an oil factory, it didn't work well.

This is a BB Cream from Etude House's Precious Mineral line.  It's called Blooming Fit and I got the shade Honey Beige.

I already tried the Cotton Fit version and I remember really liking it before.  The main difference between the two is the finish - matte and dewy.

Even though I knew about it when I bought this and I knew that it's not the best pick for my oily skin, I still got this baby.

As mentioned in my haul video, I got this at a BOGO promo so my cousin and I paid for the price of one.  Regular price was 748 php I believe.

It comes in a typical tube-with-pump type of packaging and I think this one's the darkest shade available.  It doesn't oxidize too much on me though so I guess this would match medium to dark skin tones.

The consistency is runny and tacky AF that's why I don't apply it with my fingers.  I prefer using a buffing brush to blend it.

What's impressive though is the coverage.  As a BB cream, I didn't expect it to even-out skin tone and conceal pores very well but it hell did.  It almost looks like foundation-ish on skin especially if you put at least two layers on.

However, the formula is not lightweight.  Sometimes, I feel like it's not letting my skin breathe and like I'm wearing heavy makeup on.

It also has a floral scent so for those sensitive to fragrance in makeup, you might want to stay away from this.  

Underneath powder, it doesn't look cakey and lines are not emphasized as well.  It just really gives a healthy glow.

But if I have to say the ultimate thing about it that I don't like, it would the amount of oil in the formula.

Look at this.

So I guess that's what it really gives it that dewy finish after all.

Like I said, people with dry to very dry skin might enjoy this BB Cream.  I'm actually planning to give it to my sister and check how it would work out for her.  She has very few dry patches so a face base like this might suit her skin.

And maybe because of too much oil, I feel like it easily clogs my pores.  Really not for me then.

Anyhoo, I don't regret it too much because I got it on sale.  Haha!

So yea, at least I know that I should now always for a mattifying BB cream.  Any suggestions?
