I'm a red-head with blue eyes and freckles. I've never worn foundation because it never looked smooth on me. Always mask-y and streaky. At most I just used concealer and powder.

I LOVE this bb-cream. I would love to try what others call "real" bb cream to see what the difference is. But I can only comment on what I know.

I stay out of the sun and the light works really well with my skin tone. My mom gardens a lot (we have the same complexion) so she's quite a bit more tan than me. I bought her the medium and it blends really nicely.

I'm 40 and she just turned 68- this doesn't line up in our smile lines. We both love the feel of it... or lack there of... you can't even really tell you're wearing anything!

Sadly, this was not the BB cream for me.
It started well, colour match was good, I decided upon light as medium looked a bit orangey despite me having a bit of tan to my usually pale skin.
Consistency was fine, as you'd expect from a BB/tinted moisturiser, perhaps slightly runny but as it is water based it needs a good shake before use. It was packaged in a standard tube. I think I paid around £7-8 for this, not overly expensive but enough considering i ended up giving it away!
I liked the healthy glow it gave me but it seemed to highlight all but the most minor of imperfections so I ended up using a concealer on top. The coverage seemed nice, enough to feel like it made a difference but sheer enough for the summer, it built up enough to cover my dark circles without as much concealer as I would normally use with a BB or TM.
It did feel quite fresh on my skin to start with but by the end of the day I felt a bit sticky, think it was too rich for my combination skin.
Where it really fell down though was in the way it made me break out. I get the odd hormonal break out on my chin but this caused me to break out on my cheeks, temples and jaw. After the 4th day of use I called it a day and gave it to me younger sister who has fewer imperfection and less oily skin than me! I think I'll stick to the asian BBs which have more beneficial ingredients than this but the SPF30 is nice bonus.
Was quite disappointed as I like a couple of the Maybelline foundations but unfortunately this cream is not for me.

I have very oily skin and this bb cream makes my face break out. It makes your face have a nice glow but not enough coverage. it also does not do any of those 8 things it says it does. Not a good anti-aging product. Its like tinted water

A lovely sheer cover over blemishes and imperfections. Very light and easy to apply, a little goes a long way.

Nice product. I bought this in medium and it gives a nice even finish. When first applied it feels quite sticky but that goes away when it's dried. Does not cover up any blemishes etc but works well if used with a good concealer. It has a fresh/gel like feel and also has SPF 30 so all in all, pretty pleased with it. :)

This is a really good tinted moisturizer or BB cream and good bang for the buck. It does not give super coverage but it does enhance the appearance and good for use on days when I do not have a lot of time to wast. It is not oily, does not irritate or clog my skin and adding a powder on top gives a nice finish. It also works well with concealer.

I am very happy I picked this up in my shade (deep) while on vacation in the US this year as in Europe it only come in 1 shade Apricot which is the US medium I think and appears ashy on dark skin. Same as the reviewer below, I also have to say thanks to Maybelline for creating a drugstore BB cream for women of color - and a very good one at that. The shade deep is very well blended/thought-out and can be used on a huge spectrum of different skin shades.

So, I had tried the Boscia BB cream over the winter and really liked it. But I was trying to save some dollars, and decided to give this one a try for the summer.

Overall, I was very pleased. It's not heavy, and left my skin looking pretty even overall (I have rosacea, freckles, and large pores), which was nice, particulary in the humid summer weather. I don't know that it "improved" my skin, but it felt nice and I was pretty happy with it. I think it is definitely OK, but I'm not 100% sure I would go out of my way to buy it. I think I'd like to try some others before making a final decision.

After hearing such great things about bb creams, i decided to go ahead and try the maybelline one. First of all, i have very pale skin, so even the lightest shade was too dark for me. It made me look kind of orange, so i wouldnt recomend this if you have pale skin. Secondly, it doesnt really do what it claims to do. After i put it on, my skin basically looks the same. I got it mainly to even out my skin tone, but it doesnt even do that. It is very sheer, so if your looking for any coverage this probably isnt going to work for you.

I've gone through 3 tubes of this, I really like it! I have pretty good skin to begin with, but this evens it out and makes it look really smooth. I always set it with a powder, because it's a little too shiny on it's own for my liking. The lightest shade matches my skin perfectly. I love that it has SPF 30 as I am fair and burn easily. Like it says on the package, it's a "light sheer tint", so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who needs coverage, but for people who just want something to enhance their natural skin, this works great!

SPF 30
Natural/Dewy finish
Easy to apply
0% oil
Natural glow
Lasts for a pretty long time

Tends to get very oily in humid/hot weather
Wish it had more skin benefits like the Asian BB creams.

I really like this product. It's very easy to apply and gives a natural coverage; if you're looking for a medium to full coverage, I suggest you look elsewhere. The color variation is pretty good, but it tends to get very oily throughout the day in humid/hot weather. I also wish this was more like the Asian BB creams, who have many skin benefits. All in all this is basically a tinted moisturizer with added coverage.
