well i can't say whether or not that is a great BB cream, but it sure makes for a great tinted moisturizer. i've been looking for a dupe for the nars pure radiant tinted moisturizer. i'm out of it & didn't want to pay the $42. (it didn't even last me long at all before running out.) this doesn't give as much coverage or have the lasting power of the garnier bb cream (original and oil free), but it does have nice coverage for evening skin tone. (runs darker than my nars in st moritz which was the perfect match but it works.) this does a nice job of evening skin tone and covers quite well. not as sheer as alot of tinted face products. spf 30 is great too. this feels really soft and makes my skin feel smooth. blends like a moisturizer. doesn't feel greasy. i have combo skin (drier forehead and cheeks, oily t zone) and this didn't make me oily or greasy. i set this with mac studio careblend powder for a little more coverage. I've had this on for 10 1/2 hours, and it's still wearing quiet nicely. this gives a natural "my skin only better" look. amazing. i am a fan of the revlon photoready airbrush foundation, which i've used since it came out. i think this is another great product from revlon. (i used the colorstay before & liked it as well.) i used a $2 off coupon from the paper and received 20% off at rite aid. this was about $8.99 at walmart. $10.99 at rite aid, but i paid $6.59 with my discounts.
like i said im not sure if it has all of the magic skin care properties of a bb cream, but it makes for a darn good tinted moisturizer!

btw: this runs dark. i'm nc40 in mac studio fix fluid and nw40 in studio sculpt foundations, and i wear medium in this (which is a tiny bit darker than my skin, but it works for me.) (i wear medium/deep in garnier.) i suggest going a shade down. also there are no sparkles in this like in the other photoready foundations.
