I wanted to see what all the hype was surrounding the "BB creams", so after much looking around at Ulta one day, I decided on this one. I really like it. A few points about this cream:
(1) It is not really full coverage. I'd say more sheer-medium.
(2) It has moisture built into it, so unless you have dry skin, you don't need a moisturizer with this. I think this is the main issue with some other reviewers saying that this cream never dried down properly - I think they must have been using another moisturizer underneath. I only use a lightweight eye cream, then this.
(3) I do not like the brush that comes with this. It applies the cream streaky and it makes it feel heavy on the skin. I apply it with my fingers, and it really makes a huge difference in how my skin absorbs and reflects this cream. When applied with my fingers, this cream smooths out and feels light, and the finish is satiny.
(4) Because this cream is not full coverage, it will not completely cover spots on your skin. What I do is take my "L'Oreal Crayon concealor", and dot over the individual spots, then follow that with a light dusting all over of "Rimmel Stay Matte" powder in Translucent (using a big, fluffy powder brush). Perfect finish that stays matte for several hours on my oily skin.
(5) This cream is supposed to be mattifying, and I believe it is, in a mattifying lotion type of way. And if you have dry or normal skin this may be all you need. But as someone who has oily skin, I prefer to add a light dusting of translucent powder to set.
(6) I like that it smooths over pores and makes them slightly less noticeable.
(7) It does not break me out or cause any additional shine on my skin. And it does not change color during the day. No oxidation at all. Color stays true all day.
So, to sum up ....... I like it a lot. Nice texture, nice finish. And I like that it has all my steps built-in (other than a light eye cream because my eye area is really dry). It's moisture, primer, mattifier, SPF and light foundation all in one step. Good stuff - I'm happy! :)

I have really, really dry skin that is prone to flaking, and I absolutely love this product. It's definitely not for everybody, but it works really well for me. I even like the little brush once I used it a few times and got the hang of it. Some people suggest applying it with a sponge, fingers, or bigger brush and for me the only one of those that works (sort of) is fingers. The brush it comes with definitely could be a little bigger, but it's short, moderately stiff bristles are the perfect length and firmness.
I can see how it would be too much for oily or even normal skin, but my dry skin loves it! It isn't full coverage -- more like medium coverage -- but my skin doesn't need full coverage. After I put it on my skin and buff it out a little bit, I don't need any setting powder at all and I have a glowing look to my face. On my dry skin, the makeup feels soft and my skin feels supple. In the container, the makeup is sticky and seems very heavy, but when put on with a brush and a buffing motion, it becomes airy and soft.
You could definitely use your own firm and short bristled brush to speed things up, but I found that the tiny little brush allowed me to get in by my nose and eyes easily and didn't really slow down application on my cheeks/chin/forehead too much.
I absolutely love this product, but you might not so try to sample it first and keep your receipt!

The only thing unlike about this is the packaging. It's cute comes with a small brush the down side to the brush is the fact that it takes forever for you to do your face. It says its a full coverage Bb cream which is great I figured I'd try it out it offered all these benefits and its full coverage....wrong, it hardly covers anything it's not buildable. It made my skin very oily not to mention it made my concealer crease really bad. Needless to say I'm returning this back to Macy's tomorrow I paid $39 for it and its totally not worth it save your money.

HG! This product is NOT for everyone, and I generally dislike Too Faced products, but I love this one. Unlike most heavy foundations, this is great for covering undereye circles as well and does not cause cakiness. For my Sahara-like, extremely dry skin, it gives me hours and hours of excellent coverage, an excellent color match in Snow Glow for my VERY fair skin, and no flakiness (!). It's not "full coverage" relative to full coverage foundations, but it's not a foundation. As far as BB creams go, this one is awesome and works far better for me than Smashbox's BB or Bobbi Brown's TM do. I prefer to apply with fingers or a sponge than the brush provided. I'll be heartbroken if this is discontinued!

The product and the description make it seem so awesome but in reality its not all that. The brush is tiny, you can barely use it. The makeup its self is okay, the texture is okay. It did make my skin get oily around my t zone and I actually have dry skin, it felt like I had a layer of grease over my skin.

- Gentle. Caused no breakouts or irritation.
- Provided enough coverage for my skin. NOTE: my skin is in fairly good condition, I do not need a lot of product or anything particularly heavy. My biggest issues are discoloration and redness. So this product was good enough for me. If you do need something heavier, this most likely is NOT for you, despite being advertised as "full coverage".
- Loved the packaging, easy and hygenic.
- Doesn't look cakey or thick on my skin
- Wears well; still looks nice many hours after application.
- Blends easily.
- The brush it came with really sucks. It started shedding the first time I used it. Other bits of hair have begun to come out of the brush but haven't fallen all the way out.
- It's a bit expensive, more than what I'd like to pay for a foundation that I'm going to use on a daily basis.
- Not that many colour choices; people may have difficulty finding their proper shade.
Overall, I like the product. It's good for someone who doesn't need a lot of coverage. But if you want something more heavy you should probably look elsewhere.

So I was really excited to try this when it came out bc they advertised this as a full coverage bb cream. With the name Air buffed, I kind of thought it would be the consistency of Revlons Whipped foundation. Unfortunately, this has the consistency of tough packed mud. The coverage is hardly any and it is soo difficult to apply. The package comes with a brush that is so pointless bc it does not pick up the makeup and it is so small it would take forever to do your whole face. This was also rather expensive and I expected alot more than what I got. Needless to say this was returned.

Nice packaging.. Not full coverage at all . The brush is pointless but wen I used my fingers I was able to rock it up a bit . I'm not in love or even in like lol. Just ok. I feel like this would b nice for a 12 year old. I'll b passing this down to my little sister .

I purchased this based on reviews at Too Faced's site and promptly returned it. First of all, it's NOT full coverage, but more importantly, it set my face on fire. Literally burned within a few minutes of application. My face turned red and itched horribly. I don't typically have sensitive skin, but this was just awful. Thankfully, the rash/burning effect subsided within a day. If you even think you might have sensitive skin, stay far, far away.

Lghtweight buildable coverage, perfect for oily skin, perfect for fair skin, flawless, mattifying, great for minimizing pores and small wrinkles
I think the brush it's the reason a lot of people gave it negative reviews... try using your fingers!
Is amazing, absolutely love it!

This didn't work for me. I have very dry skin, and this seemed to make it worse. The consistency of the product itself was very hard and dry in the container, although when I touched it, it seemed pliable enough. Once I swirled the brush in and tried to apply it to my face, it was so difficult to blend out that I not only had the brush strokes ON my face, but my skin was flaky and patchy as well. Perhaps this works well on oily/combo skin, but it was no friend to mine. The packaging is genius tho.

I'm going to be returning this product ASAP. I'm a pro Makeup Artist, and I have to say this is by far one of the worst products I've used lately, via it's promise. The description states "full coverage, other benefits" etc...it's not at all full coverage. It's a light, sheer coverage, which isn't buildable, and smudges when trying to set it even with the lightest touch. More like a tinted moisturizer. I really dislike the way Too Faced website posts reviews of their products. They're biased, and
I understand they want their clients to see positive feedback vs negative...BUT I have reviewed many of their products, and they only published the positive reviews! Any negative point in an otherwise positive review, will not be posted. How PATHETIC! For a company to ask their customers for their honest opinions, and not post them, is very misleading to consumers. Don't waste your money on this if you're planning to have anything more than sheer coverage.

Not full coverage. Light to Med at best. I tried to build a fuller coverage but the product never completely dries so it was very time consuming. Once you add blush the product just smears around because it never fully dries (I waited 15 mins). I'm NC20 and Vanilla Glow seems to be an OK match. For $39, not worth the effort for a BB Cream.

I found this BB creme to be lacking. I chose Creme Glow and for reference I am between NC25/NC30. It is not an exact match but close enough. With a little blush and bronzer it works as far as color goes.
I was expecting more of a whipped texture based upon the name Air Buffed. Instead it is more a hard, waxy texture in the container. Certainly not a deal breaker for me. I've used the brush it comes with as well as my Real Techniques brush to apply it. It didn't make a difference in terms of coverage. I think the coverage is light. I still needed a concealer to cover up the redness around my nose and cheeks. I don't know how they can claim this is a full coverage creme?? Also, it feels kind of heavy on my skin.
I still needed a light dusting of powder too. For almost $40 USD I expected more. I will be returning this product.

What a lovely product! I've been stalking Ulta awaiting the arrival of Too Faced spring items to come in stock...oooh, the BB creme. I'm a NW25 and NW30 so I decided to try on two options...creme glow and linen glow, the majority chose the creme glow. The packaging is nice with a complimentary brush that is stored on the lid of the jar. Very handy! The product is a solid balm and when you swirl the brush across the product and the makeup glides right on with amazing coverage. I have sensitive skin which I turn red very easy. Viola...covered. I tend to have irritation between and above my eyebrows (botox) and the product delivered. I noticed that the finish sits on top of your skin before it settles but the the finish is beautiful. I finish with a nice sweep of MAC powder for that polished look but you really don't need to. Great Job, Too Faced!

I tested this in Linen Glow and Nude Glow. Nude Glow was best on my NC35 skin, and I found it to be a very good match. Its velvety texture blends smoothly over my skin. This "creme" has a soft finish, but it doesn't have the consistency of "cream" at all. In the container this feels like a porous solid, almost wax-sponge-ish; but on skin it sets as powder. It doesn't compress or contract like a sponge but it feels like it releases air when it's touched. This is good for oil-control, and it's especially smooth over pores. It does not have to be set with powder, which is great! Personally, I find the coverage to be quite sheer, even for my skin, and I like sheer foundation. The SPF 20 is a fabulous addition to any makeup, and this gives me hope for a future formula that may offer more coverage. I would use a sponge for application, not the cute little attached brush, if I wanted this to be my sunscreen, but the brush is darling, and very soft.

As soon as I saw this on Ulta, I had to try it. I have tried a few BB creams, but nothing I really cared for until now. It is expensive at $39, but comes with a cute mini foundation brush w/cap that attaches to top of container. The brush is super soft yet sturdy at same time. Coverage is light to medium with a semi matte finish.
I am a Mac NC30-35 and the color Linen Glow was a pretty close match. It was hard finding out which color I would be since I found no reviews or good photos. I was lucky though! This does have golden undertones, so probably won't work for everyone. Actually all the colors they have currently are a golden undertone :( I am pretty neutral but blended fine for me.
Texture is very thick and dense, almost like a chapstick/hard balm if that makes any sense. You have to swirl brush around hard to pick up any color so I see this lasting quite awhile.
Wear time so far has been about 8 hours and have not noticed much shine by end of day. I am pretty dry right now, so not sure how well it would work on oily skin. I have only worn 2 days, so will have to see how my skin adjusts and will update.
So I give this a solid 4 for now. Think this will be great for spring/summer for a lighter foundation look.
