I use this bb cream every day! I was looking for something less heavy for my face.. i wanted to stop using foundation for daily use, so after an intense research i finally decided to try this bb cream. I got really good results! I use it every day.
I switched from Benefit “hello flawless oxygen wow” to this and I love it. I keep getting told that my make up looks amazing...if they only knew how cheap it is
I love this BB Cream, it's probably the best cream that I have tried. It's very lightweight and leaves your skin an even tone without giving you the dreaded "cake face" look. I'm not one to always go for a full face of makeup so this is nice to get good coverage without a whole lot of time and effort. Plus it has SPF which is always a bonus in your makeup. I also like how it doesn't make me feel like a grease ball at the end of the day. Definitely will continue to purchase this product.
Holy. Cow. I can honestly say, this is the best base product I’ve ever used. And just to give that some context, I’ve worked in product development in the beauty industry for several years, in addition to being a total foundation junkie. I watch foundation reviews religiously and have tried literally over 100 different base products in my life.
I’ve spent up to $85+ and as little as $3 on a foundation and have tried products at all price points in between- and out of all of those products, this ~$19 product has quickly became my HOLY GRAIL
I have weird skin- it’s tight and dry when I wash my face, but I get oily through the day. I hate applying powder because it clings weird to my skin, but I always have to apply it because I hate super matte foundations. Even though that’s the case, I gave this one a shot because one of my fave foundation reviewers was raving about it.
I was AMAZED at how incredibly smooth this stuff made my skin. I have quite a lot of pitted acne scarring on my cheeks, and nothing blurs them- nothing. This was the first product I’ve used in my lifetime that actually diminishes the look of my scars significantly. Granted, I used the Tatcha silk canvas underneath, but that primer has never blurred my scarring or my pores at all with any other product. In fact, it hasn’t really done me any favors in the past- I just threw it on because it was expensive and I want to use it up.
And now, 8 hours after application, even though I applied no powder at all, my face makeup (including blush and bronzer, which would usually be blotchy and partially worn off by now) still looks PERFECT. No greasy t-zone (unheard of!!), no separation, no clinging to dry or textured spots, not even the reappearance of my acne scarring. It literally looks like I just applied it ten minutes ago.
All that and it isn’t completely matte to where it kind of deadens the skin- your skin just looks soft, blurred and velvety. I immediately came back to grab a backup as soon as I checked the mirror 8 hours in. I am SO beyond excited to find a bb cream that way outperforms the most expensive foundations out there and costs barely more than a latte. Covergirl, you haven’t been my favorite brand in the past, but you’ve knocked his one out of the park.
This is pure gold, people!! Get your hand on it!
I have recently migrated to the B.B. cream world and have found it inherently difficult to find a good product. Alas....my search efforts are done.
Every cream I’ve tried left me with a super shiny oily glow or very little coverage. This awesome little product delivers!!! As a matte product it goes on easily and doesn’t “dry out” before you can apply it evenly. The coverage is exceptional and I do NOT look like an oil spill at any point during the day before I wash at night.
My elf, Garnier, and every other brand I’ve tried to date are all getting tossed. They simply cannot compare.
I have fairly oily skin. While wearing other bb creams, i could feel the grease on my skin mingling with the bb cream and clogging my pores. This also gave me a not so attractive "glow". This bb cream is great at keeping my skin shine free ALL DAY. the cream has a little powdery substance in it that seems to absorb the oils on my skin and gives me a very nice matte finish. It's boosted my confidence bu a fair degree and i would definately recomend it to anyone struggling with trying to find simple coverage that gives the perfect ammount of oil-cover.
I had been using a more high end brand of tinted BB cream and I just got tired of paying the money for it. I tried this out and I LOVE it. Now, I'm very much a "no make-up make-up" girl and I don't like feel of full coverage foundations on my face where I'm extremely acne prone. This BB cream is so lightweight, I don't know I'm wearing it, but it smooths out my skin's texture and evens pigment (no red spots). I apply with my fingertips - I tried with a beauty blender and brushes and the sponges just absorb so much product and brushes will leave streaks, so fingers are the best in my opinion for this product. I use concealer on problem spots when I need to and this just blends right into my skin. I let it dry down a bit because it goes matte, but not in a cakey way - its very smooth. And then I can put blush on top like normal and have no issues - I don't even have to use a setting powder on top of this. I've bought this maybe 6 times and the light/fair color is perfect for me, but I can see that if you don't get lucky with the shade, it may not work for you. You also need a light hand with this - if you put too much on it doesn't blend right and will dry up and leave streaks on your face. Bottom line, don't use much, use your fingers and let it dry down before adding anything on top and it looks gorgeous. The worst thing I can say about this product is that it does oxidize over time so when you get down to the bottom of the tube, the color is not the same as when you started - it goes a bit darker over time. But I use mine so often that I normally run out before I see that happen too much.
This is a review for the color “Cool Ivory” the lightest shade. I really like this skin-like “BB cream” that keeps me matte for a long time. It’s so natural looking! I feel like it gives really nice light-medium coverage. BB cream I don’t feel is a very good description for it. I personally feel like it has more coverage than most BB creams that are nothing more than tinted moisturizers. If you are looking for a natural matte look, give this a try! The packaging is easy to worth with and I love the price of this. I feel like the lightest shade “fair” isn’t really that light. I am pretty fair skinned with freckles. If someone was extremely fair skinned, I’m not sure this would work. In my experience cover girl leaves out the very fair skinned girls in their lightest shades.
