Guys! This is supposed to be a LIGHT BB cream! I use this as a primer because it gives my Urban Decay weightless foundation a bit more coverage and because I have SUPER dry skin! I LOVE this so much!

I purchased this a few days ago because the color in tube/tester was so pretty and felt so silky smooth. When I put it on at home I was like "WTF?!?" - there was absolutely no color payoff. And what I mean by that is no coverage of any kind not even a tint and not even a glow as promised. I tried this again the next day and ended up with the same situation. Although it feels great on the skin, I wasn't in need of yet another moisturizer/primer/serum type product so I was pretty bummed. I can't believe this is even selling as a BB at the $35 price point, that's crazy. I ended up returning this.

I bought this for $17 during ULTA's 21 days of beauty event 6 months ago and used it on a daily basis because I enjoyed it. It's been a while since I've used it and I recently tested it out again since I am debating repurchasing to have a backup since it is on sale again. After opening I was reminded of the horrible smell it had. For this reason I just can't repurchase. If I can't stand the smell why would I waste my money? I now prefer to use a primer and foundation with SPF as opposed to a BB cream as well.

I don't have anything good to say about this product. When I first opened it, I thought it had expired based on the strange odor, but it was still good. I later compared it to the one at the store. Very strange/horrible odor. It felt really oily. Went on rather orange and was a bit streaky going on. DIdn't really cover anything on my skin, just have a shear orange look. I wasn't impressed at all. I would definitely avoid this product, unless they make the color more natural looking and fix that horrible odor. Also having some amount of coverage would be nice. It almost is like a BB bronzer, that doesn't look that natural on.

Thankfully I only got a sample size of this product, its really far below anything i expect from UD


THE GOOD:
texture - easy to apply and blend, no qualms there.

staying power - starts to fade after about 4 hours, but I always have some left after I get home. I have combination skin with an oily t zone.

THE BAD:
smell - minty and somewhat medicinal. I dont like smelling like a medicine cabinet but thankfully it wears off relative quickly

The colour - this is very very orange on my yellow C2 skin, it might suit heavily tanned cool toned ladies, although I don't know anyone who's naturally this orange

coverage - very light, so you will probably get away with how orange this is, but on the other side it struggles to cover even minimal discolouration.

doesn't actually improve the skin as a BB cream should, think of this as more of a lightly tinted orange moisturiser


Overall, wouldn't pick up a new one even it was free.

I really liked this BB Cream. I wore it on it's own with just concealer, and it was good for me. It doesn't give a ton of coverage, which is why I had to add concealer, but I didn't really mind that because it felt so light on my face. I do think you have to have a specific skin tone in order to use this because it would look a bit orange on me sometimes, and I have medium skin. It was long-lasting; I could go all day with this and still see it come off on my makeup remover at the end of the day. Not too expensive, which is also great.

This BB cream is ok. I didn't expect much coverage from it anyway since it is an American BB cream and I bought it to even out my skin tone. I was actually given a sample to try out after I liked how it looked on me when one of the girls at Macy's tried it on me. It makes my skin look nice and does seem to even out my skintone, but it's so expensive!! The travel sized one is so not worth the price....Other than that, the BB cream is ok. If you're looking for coverage, look elsewhere because this isn't it. This also did not break me out. I have oily, acne prone, slightly sensitive skin.

I think this product has so many negative reviews because people are expecting it to have more coverage. This really isn't a replacement for foundation if you are looking for coverage. It evens out bare skin and makes it look better, but still bare skin. I mean, it comes in one shade, so obviously it's not going to offer a lot of coverage. It can be worn UNDER foundation or concealer, if you feel like you need that, but then it's basically just a primer and maybe not worth the money.

I personally LOVE this product. I don't wear foundation on a regular basis, I hate how it feels and I don't really need to cover much. I'm 30 years old, no wrinkles except around my mouth from smoking for years, skin is on the dry side, pretty even except occasional dark circles that I use concealer on. This makes my skin look perfect, matte but natural, and really diffused. It also lasts all day. This is great for no makeup days, or when you want a really minimal look. So, if you have problem skin, or a lot to cover, maybe this won't be enough. It also lasts forever, I had a tiny sample that lasted for weeks and then I bought the bigger sample size at Sephora and that lasted for like over a month. The full size lasts me a really long time.

I really disliked this BB cream. I wanted to love it, but it just was not that great. First of all the coverage is SO SO light. It smells weird. And also, I don't even have sensitive skin, and I felt when I had this on, my skin felt very irritated or almost allergic to it. I wonder if the fragrance of the protect maybe didn't agree with my skin, but I was pretty surprised about it. Bummer. I have a full tube of this stuff just sitting on my vanity, but I got it free, so I'm not too peeved by it.

I was convinced to give this product a try - BB creams make me break out but this one wasn't too bad - one of the least breakouts of the many BB/CC creams i've tried.

However it doesn't provide much coverage - in face i would almost classify it as transparent if you're lucky translucent.
