THE SMELL. This is one of the strongest-smelling products I've ever used, and the smell does not dissipate. I don't normally return makeup but I couldn't tolerate this stuff at all, blech!

I read a bunch of bad reviews of this product, but I have re-purchased it a few times! No, it's not going to give you full coverage. It's a BB cream, not a foundation! It's moisturizing enough for me on it's own, and it's a bit luminous when it's dry (which this mature girl likes a lot!). I use it on it's own on the weekends, and use it underneath Tarte's foundation (which is too dry for me but I hate to throw it away - but that's another review!) on work days.

It feels very fresh going on, but it doesn't last long. I usually re-apply after work or a work-out. If you're looking for something light that feels clean, this will do the trick.

This is for those days when I have run out of the house to do groceries & I need something quick & easy and my non makeup would scare people lol!

It is light coverage that evens out most of my skin tone. Is it the best in the world? No but when I am not looking for a fully made up face then this does the trick.

It does not however in any shape or form replace your moisturiser

Within an hour of using this product my skin began to sting badly. I immediately cleaned it off, but for about a week my face remained red with a light (painful) rash. At times the rash was hard to see, but when I or anyone else brushed the skin on my cheeks it was obvious that there were bumps. I was afraid to try another BB cream after that experience, but luckily it hasn't happened with any other brands yet.

I just bought this bb cream after hearing everyone raving about it online. I got it for $10 at walmart, which is a little more than I usually would spend on any kind of makeup, because I'm big on budget beauty. I've used this product twice so far. It has way better coverage than the Maybelline, covergirl, and nyc bb's that I've used in the past. Still sheer but definitely evens out my redness and makes my acne spots less noticeable. I bought the shade light/medium, and it's a little too dark for my skin, or at least I think it is, it could be that I'm used to my wet n wild coverall making me incredibly pale. My sister told me that this bb cream made me look way better than my usual foundation. I apply it with my fingers and just blend it in that way. It gives my skin a really pretty glow and stays put all day. If you have really oily skin you probably will not like this product because it has that glow to it. I personally think it looks super pretty because it's not an oily shine, it's more of an illuminated shine. It isn't oily to the touch or anything like that. I know that they have also come out with a formula for oily skin. Overall I'm really happy with this product, and I will be buying it again when I use this tube up. which will probably take a while because you get 2 Oz in for 10 bucks which is a ton. Switching from my foundation routine to this bb cream has also shaved like 15 minutes off my normal get ready time. The only reason I took a lippie off is because there are only 2 shades, light/medium and medium/deep.

I used to love this BB cream before I used foundation and other BB creams for daily wear. I bought it again and have only used it a couple times because it's just not agreeing with me anymore. The formula is quite nice and creamy and applies good but it leaves an oily finish to my face and I do not have oily skin. It does smell alright but compared to other BB creams I have tried recently I probably wouldn't repurchase.

If you have dry skin I would absolutely stay away from this. It applies in patches and once dried it completely rubs off and leaves dry bits of skin. I have tried applying it with different tools but every outcome is the same. Waste of money

The coverage was amazingly good (and buildable) for a BB cream without looking mask-like! In my opinion, this product is only for the oiliest complexions. It seems to have clay-like base that dries quickly to a velvety matte finish. I have very oily skin and even on a warm day I was shine free for a good 4 to 5 hours. Anyone who expects more than that amount of time is delusional. Even high-end products don't deliver that kind of performance even though they will make that claim. The only down side is the 2 option color selection. It won't be light enough for the fairest complexions and not deep enough for the darkest complexions. I would also guess that most of the women who like this product will need to purchase both colors options to mix a color that's a better match for them. Other than that, for the price it is a great light-weight matte foundation with enough opacity to blur imperfections without giving you that obviously "made up" look.
