This isn't my HG bb cream. I highly prefer my Smashbox-- it's perfect for me. But, it's EXPENSIVE! So I've been on the hunt for something that's sort of "daily wear" when I want to look better than no make up, but don't want to use the pricey stuff. This is pretty good. I bought the fairest color, which has a pretty nice neutral tone. It doesn't turn orange or pink, nor does it make me look yellow. It's a decent amount of coverage, it doesn't make my skin oilier than normal. It stays put and doesn't migrate into my eyes or slide off my face after a while. I'm looking at you, Maybelline BB! :( Something about this stuff just isn't perfect though. It sort of makes my skin look dull, almost dirty-- like I've been rolling in dust out in the yard. I am not sure how to explain it other than it's the OPPOSITE of the "luminous" look that most bb's try to give you. Perhaps there's some kind of clay as an ingredient? I have no idea. For 7 bucks though, it's adequate for my purposes. I'll keep looking for a "budget HG" bb though.
I don't like this BB cream at all. I am a C4/ NC30 and I had to buy medium and medium dark, the medium was too pink and the medium dark was too dark ( maybe good if I am tan). I mixed both and it just sat on my skin, for $7 bucks it was worth the try but I am going back to my maybelline "dream" BB cream in medium.....much better finish!!!
Not an amazing BB cream its a very think almost but it does apply okay but it doesnt fully blend or absorb in. The lightest colour is also a touch dark. Doesnt do anything fantastic just feels a bit dry on. My hunt will continue!
shade range is disappointing.only 3 shades so youre lucky if one matches you exactly. i have oily skin but also some dry patches on my cheeks, the product clung to the dry patches making them look really noticeable which is not the point of a bb cream, i thought it would be moisturizing while at the same time mattifying. WRONG! so this is good for really oily skin, if you have the slightest bit of drying on your face it'll cake up. returned this and will not be repurchasing.
I did not like this product at all!
This product was not for me! I have extremely dry flaky skin that turns into extremely oily skin throughout the day. Its complicated...i know (if any one has a solution im all ears!).
When I first put it on, it accentuated my flakes like crazyyy, especially around my nose. Also it started to change color. It seemed grayish, and began to get darker.
I think this product would be good for people who have relatively good skin. There are only two shades to choose from so that is another bummer. Not a repurchase for me, but I have heard people say that they like it .
I have used a few BB creams - from Cover Girl and one from Korea - and this is the nicest so far! Coverage is good, gives my face a nice glow (not greasy, just a muted sheen). Would def buy again!
I've been using this BB cream for about a week and honestly I'm surprised the ratings aren't higher. I'm a MAC NW 125 and use the Medium shade. It goes on lighter than my skin tone but quickly blends in to a great match-- actually the best match I've found for my skin in a drugstore makeup to date. It is a thicker consistency than liquid foundation but I find it very easy to blend with a combination of my fingers and a makeup sponge-- I can't imagine applying it effectively with a brush, but I don't like that method anyway. I have rosacia on my lower cheeks and several sunspots, which this BB cream conceals very nicely without looking unnatural. It does make my face feel a bit oily over the course of the day, but it doesn't make me any shinier than oil-free foundations. I blot the shine with tissues or paper towels rather than powder, which I find clogs my pores. Speaking of which, the pores on and around my nose are large and this cream does not sink in or make them look any larger, which many foundations do; rather, it gives me a softened, glowy, youthful look that has me pleasantly surprised. Best of all, it hasn't made me break out and even seems to have sped the drying/healing of a few cystic pimples, without drying the rest of my face. I'm sold!
Mmmm...I wanted so much to like this since I love the 25 hour Lasting Finish makeup. It looks great in the mirror, faces glows and looks softer BUT up close it looks gross! I get little whitish balls on this stuff around my hairline right after I put it on. It rubs off even though it states it is long lasting. My T zone gets totally oily in a couple of hours(I have normal to dry skin fair skin). No way could I wear this in summer. Maybe in the dead of our dry winter? Coverage is medium. Love the SPF but will not re-buy this summer. Please put SPF in the Lasting Finish!!
This is the first BB cream I've used, so I've nothing to compare it to, but I like it. I'm prone to rosecea so my skin is often red and patchy, and its oily so I need to mix and match my products at times. I find the coverage with this cream is really good - other users have said its quite thick which I like. The colour blends nicely and it lasts well with a dab of powder over the top.
It's also fairly cheap, and a little goes a long way so it'll last for ages.
although it has okay coverage its greasy and the color selection sucks! im fair with pink undertones
the lightest shade is too dark and orange! it accentuates large pores and dry patches it spreads fine but does not blend and even with a setting powder it looks cakey and does not set it slides around so dont even think about touching your face or hugging someone it definitely transfers!
such a waste of money do not buy you'll regret it!
