NEW Etude House Precious Minerals BB Cream - TAN! Swatches & Review

2:06 PM

Hi all!

Being the biggest Etude House BB cream fan girl there ever was (self-proclaimed of course), I had to get my hands on the newest edition to their lineup. 

The 2017 Etude House BB Cream has a Moist and a Matte formulation which is amazing. To add to that. it comes in 5 different shades. YUP! FINALLY!! I'm here as usual to share my thoughts, feels, swatches and general review over the newest editions to the Etude House bb cream family :).


  • Ebay Seller I bought this from:
  • Price: $12-$15 USD


"Multi-BB (Beautifying block) Cream that completes clear and healthy skin with bright cover and block effect protecting skin from outside."

Also features: 
  • Wrinkle, Whitening, UV Protection (SPF 50+ PA+++)
  • Tone, texture and spot cover


This BB cream comes in a plastic 1.58/45g squeeze tube. It resembles last year's Cover & Bright fit in terms of packaging. I found that the squeeze tube can be a little difficult to control how much product is dispensed but if you're careful, all is good!


The texture itself is very thin so it spreads and blends into my skin with ease. I love how lightweight it feels but can feel and look unnatural if too much is applied.

I found I get the best results when I apply this bb cream with a damp sponge. I also do not find that this bb cream accentuates any of my dry areas which is FANTASTIC! 


This definitely has more a neutral undertone but it blends in perfectly into my nc30/nc35 yellow based skin. 

Etude House shades ALWAYS varies and they also tend to change up their shade names. Below is a comparison between a few of the "darker" shades of bb cream I have so you can see the differences between them. I have no idea why the keep changing up their darkest shade name and color...


I apply a thin layer, spot conceal and find that this bb cream delivers solid light-medium coverage. Trying to apply 2 or more full layers feels too heavy and looks too unnatural for my liking.

I apply concealer on top for more coverage on my darker areas but the picture below is just 1 layer with spot concealing with the bb cream. It also leaves that beautiful sheen which I LOVE!

 Lasting Power: 

On my combination dry/normal skin, it lasted a solid 8 hours before fading. I do prime and set my face so that could definitely  helps increase longevity. 

  • Variety of shades
  • Long lasting
  • Doesn't accentuate dry areas
  • Dries down & doesn't leave sticky feeling
  • Comes in 2 different formulas (matte & moist)


  • Rubs off somewhat easily
  • Doesn't layer well

Overall, I love this bb cream! I am extremely happy that the color works so well for me and how easily it glides over my skin. Definitely one of my new favorite bb creams!

I also have a video review posted on my YouTube channel if you'd like to check that out. I really hope my review was helpful & informative! 

Thanks so much for reading ~
