I bought the lightest shade. I'm fair skinned worth pink undertones, which I hate. since this does have a very yellow undertone it actually does awesome covering my redness! I wear it undrr my bare minerals Foundation and its great! I also will wear it alone on days I don't feel like eating makeup. doesn't make me oily or Shiney. thumbs up!

I bought this in Nude (for reference my skin is NC25 in MAC/Bobbi Brown in Beige/GA Luminous Silk in #5) which matches okay, but is not yellow enough and the next darker shade Buff is too dark.
It feels nice going on, easy to apply and blends out easily as well. I use a bit of powder in the t-zone with pretty much any tinted moisturiser or foundation and did the same with this one. So far so good.
The problem is this oxidised like crazy to a clown-like orange. I then went out and bought Porcelain thinking since it was lighter, I could blend the 2 together and maybe it would be less obvious. This made it slightly better but then it looked a bit patchier and oxidised in some areas and not in others. I don't want to start mixing this with foundations and so on because then I may as well just use a foundation or just use a product that works in the first place.
It's not a bad tinted moisturiser, it just didn't work for me. But I know some foundations that oxidised and look awful on me have looked great on my friends, family or other people. It's cheap so it's still worth a try but I prefer my Wet N Wild tinted moisturiser in Buff - much better match colour-wise and no oxidising or patchiness, it's my HG tinted moisturiser.

I have this in the shade Porcelain and I use this on top of my concealer which makes me look ghostly but after applying this it levels my skin out. Its a great color on me because it has a yellow undertone and matches well with my skin.You basically get what you pay for... a simple light weight tinted moisturizer. The only thing I would say is to not try and use this as a concealer or continuously build this up because it WILL look orangey. I find the best way to apply this is to tap it in and blend it well with your fingers, other than that I love how it looks on my face.

I'm an NC 15 neutral/warm and I bought the lightest shade Porcelain and it went on very orange. When it it dried, it made my face feel tight and I had moisturized prior to application. Had to wash it off and re-moisturize..not sure if this was a reaction I had to the product or if it has happened to others but I found it odd that it was so immediately drying since it's a tinted moisturizer**head scratch**Thankfully, it was only $3..I would have been upset had I paid more.

Not a fan of this product. I will not repurchase. It sits on the top of my skin, cakey and streaky and does not play well with my anti-aging serums. I have tried multiple application processes, brush, fingers, blender ..... can't get it to look natural. I have to mix it with a non tinted moisturizer to get it to look reasonably good.

I've repurchased this product a couple of times and to be honest, I don't think I'll be repurchasing it again. Obviously it's not going to give you full coverage due to it only being a tinted moisturizer, but, it does in face reduce redness. Honestly, as time has went on and I've started to experiment with this product, I've become more displeased. From comparing reviews, I've decided that I'm going to try Wet 'N Wild's tinted moisturizer instead. The reviews are a lot better and you can get 1 oz. for $1.99 at Walgreen's as compared to this, which is .88 oz. for $3! So if you're interested in a tinted moisturizer, definitely look into the Wet 'N Wild!

I bought this product hoping it would be better than the Covergirl's Tinted Moisturizer, and It was! My only two complaints is the color and the oily-ness. I have very fair skin and when I purchased this in the lightest color, it was actually quite dark. Almost like a beige type color. I recommend doing little amounts at a time and carefully blending it in around the jaw line, or it could become blotchy. I also experienced my skin to be oily as the day went on. I do not have oily skin, so this was surprise to me! I usually just set mines with powder from now on. All in all, Its an okay tinted moisturizer. I said I would repurchase, but to be honest, if I found a better tinted moisturizer I would not buy this again. I simply do not want to go through the hassle of blending and setting again.

While I have seen some very negative reviews about color for this product I feel it was made for me. I have very pale yet a truly deep yellow or as one YouTuber called this product pumpkin yellow lol. I use it for days at the beach for its SPF 20 . Not at all cokay and is very light.

I purchased this in Porcelain (for ref I'm a BB Porcelain, LM Porcelain Ivory, Stila A or 10 watts, Flower Beauty PP2) and it was a touch too dark. It went on smoothly, evened my skin and left me glowy not greasy, natural and fresh. I like that it has spf 20 but feel like I still need to put a proper sunblock on first because foundations or tinted moisturizers aren't applied perfectly evenly and I'm obsessive about keeping my melasma out of the sun. I'd def buy this again and honestly I don't see much difference between other drugstore level products labeled BB Creams (see my reviews to see which ones I tried) and this. as for the shade, I blended a touch of Le Blane de Chanel or Dior Blanc Pur Base Teint on certain areas to lighten to my shade on days when I want an exact match.
