I had such high hopes for this item while searching for a great bb cream. Unfortunately, this didn't work out for me as expected. I almost got sucked into buying the full-size tube when I saw the smaller version of this because I really didn't know what to expect and I'm so glad I bought the smaller size because it will probably be the last time I'll buy this.
The great thing about this bb cream is that the color is pretty much universal with light-medium tones so it blends in your skin easily. Second, I like the scent of it because it doesn't have that chemical smell and upon application, it goes on smoothly but that's where the pros end. The coverage is not great at all. Even after putting layer after layer on some of my dark spots, they were still visible until I had to top it off with my regular foundation. The coverage is extremely thin, even though the whole product itself feels lightweight. I will say that the coverage is good if you only need a very light one but if you're looking to cover scars and marks, I suggest to keep looking.
I love Urban Decay but this is definitely not their best product. In fact, this is my only true disappointment with them so far. I'm glad I only had this as a sample because it is horrible. I know what a beauty balm this and this is no beauty balm. A BB is supposed to oxidize to your skin tone. This just made me look completely orange and did not blur or minimize any imperfections on my skin. Not even the sample was worth keeping so I threw it away shortly after I looked in the mirror.
I wandered around Ulta just window shopping for an hour or so, so I felt obliged to buy SOMETHING so the employees wouldn't get frustrated (I asked them all questions but didn't buy haha). I picked this up from the grab n go thing after choosing it over the Primer Potion. Bad idea. This has absolutely no coverage. None. At all. Probably because they only make it in one shade, so they need it to fade as much as possible in order for it to blend. Layer after layer wouldn't even cover the even the smallest amount of of redness on my cheeks. The only good thing is the pleasant smell, which is very light and sort of minty.
I don't even really know what to say/where to begin with this stuff. While I'm NC44 in MAC I *can* wear this (the color isn't too off on me or anything), but I just fail to see all of the "magical" things that UD says it does. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge UD fan, but I'll admit that I'm not a fan of their face stuff, i.e., this and their foundation. I think they've got a long way to go in that area. Because I don't feel that this product does anything noticeable for me I'm now regretting the purchase (that is too late to return).
I absolutely love this stuff. I got it as a sample and fell in love immediately. When I went to buy it at Ulta I was a little taken aback by the price but its worth it. I have pretty good skin and don't need a lot of coverage so on days when I just want a very natural look this is just enough for me. When I first hot the sample I was shocked that they only had one color but it blends really well with my complexion.
I feel like thear wasn't enough coverage from this bb . I gave a bad review for packaging because it balls up in the cap n makes a mess. I've heard it's a good primer but haven't tried it that way just yet! For the steep price I don't think this product delivers .
Thank the stars I only got a sample of this. I don't even know how UD is selling this crap. First of all, I don't think this is true to its claim of fitting most skin tones. It does not work for me, and I am an olive skin tone. It manages to look like I have nothing on, but an ashy/orange tint to my skin. Yuck! It feels wet, like it never actually dries and makes my skin look like it's naturally streaky, if that makes any sense at all. I would never ever recommend this to anyone. It's useless, and wayyyyy too expensive for what it does.
I do like this BB cream. Though, with that being said, I don't think it's the most impressive product UD has to offer. My skin looks good after putting it on, yes, and lately I've been using it every day. [Note: That's mostly because I lost my pore perfecting primer (which I am so annoyed about) and so I just like to have something to set a good base.]
I personally think it's a expensive - I got the trial size at Ulta at the gab n go section. $12 for .5 fl oz. Glad I did because I would have been upset with myself if I got some full size of it and didn't really care for it that much.
Usually I am raving about UD but this time I think it's just a good temporary replacement until I shell out the $30something for the new pore perfecting primer.
The tube is nice though, and as always UD does a nice job of packaging their product. I've been able to keep squeezing every last bit out until I really run out.
I'd buy it again if I couldn't afford the PPP, which is usually haha!
I love this product. I was sceptical at first as it is a one colour fits all product BUT once I tried it, I was convinced. I hadn't used a BB cream before but had used tinted moisturiser (Natura Bisse). As my skin ages I am wary of products that cake or lack moisture so I am careful with new purchases. I was persuaded to try to UD BB even though it comes in only one colour. Strangely it goes on in a bronze-orange shade but is quickly absorbed and provides even, subtle coverage. I am prone to redness and I was pleasantly surprised at how it toned me down effectively. I now use it under a light foundation (Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Mineral Liquid) and the effect is really flattering and evenly toned. It feels lovely on my skin so it is now an essential part of my makeup routine. I will definitely buy this again... as soon as I find some way of getting it to Australia!
I really like this stuff. I've tried several BB creams, both drugstore and department store brands. I hadn't found one that I really liked until I found this. It is my perfect summer makeup. I put this on and I'm pretty much good to go. It gives my skin a dewy look without making me look shiny. And my skin can be pretty oily in the summer-so that's no small feat. It doesn't offer a ton of heavy coverage (as other reviewers have noted) but that's not really what I expect BB Creams to do anyway. If you're looking for a makeup you can just put on and go on a picnic or something, this is the one.
