I tried the original garnier bb cream years ago and I absolutely hated it, I have super dry skin and I remember it making me feel like an oil slick. I was really apprehensive to try this because I assumed it wouldn't work with my skin because it's designed for combo/oily skin, but honestly, this stuff works amazing. It has a light/medium coverage, and the colour "medium" matches me perfectly when I'm tan (MAC NC35), however the light shade is too light for me when I'm my natural skintone (MAC NC20) so the shade selection is pretty poor. This stuff looks like skin and if applied properly (I use a beautyblender) it looks undetectable on me.

I love this bb cream! I love it! Coverage is great and looks natural! VERY buildable! Just hate the packaging, their is no pump so the product always spills everywhere! :/

I am on my second tube and I am really enjoying it. it provides coverage without feeling heavy on the skin at all. I use this A LOT during the warmer months when I want a lil bit of something on but not a full coverage foundation. the shades are tragic though, I think it's only light/medium/dark. I have fair/medium skin and light is just the right shade for me but I can see how the shades range can be a problem for a lot of people. it is really cheap and it's an overall good find! definitely will continue buying this

Pros:

Great coverage for a BB cream
Feels light on skin

Cons
Not terribly wonderful at preventing oily skin
Oxidizes quickly
Lightest color turns orangey

I used this BB cream instead of using a foundation for over a year now. I always liked that it had great coverage and made my morning routine easy and simple. However, it didn't entirely prevent oily skin midday (especially in the summer) and I still ended up with a few black heads and pimples. I looked in the mirror today and was surprised by an oily line at my chin, darker than my natural skin tone. The lightest color appears too orange for my natural skin tone, which I consider a neutral, light color, a sort of Classic Ivory color.

After a year of using this product, I'm going to try out Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation, to see if I prefer that for oil coverage and a simple routine.

I actually accidentally bought this, and when I found out that this is what I bought, I decided to try it out.
At first I used it as a kind of concealer thingy. I would just dab it on spots around my face, and then apply foundation. Because of my oily skin, my foundation/concealer tends to fade. This time I realized, that my foundation had faded completely at the end of the day, but the Miracle Skin Perfector was still "just how I left it:)"
Then, I started using it as a foundation for those "no make up days".
It has a great color, and the coverage is natural.
I will buy this again for sure.

A go to for a "no makeup" day.
I went through a phase where I absolutely loved this as it is really light weight and gave me a bit of coverage to cover my red cheeks but left me with a really bare complexion. Which was the look I was going for.
The only reason I no longer use or would buy this is
a) I no longer feel comfortable with minimal makeup, I prefer a full coverage everyday.
b) I have half a tube left so if I ever decide to use it again I wouldn't need to buy it as I have some left over.
Packaging is good, really easy to use, just squeeze a bit out on a beauty blender and you're good to go! I found this blended in great as the mixture was more on the runny side allowing a small amount to go a long way.
I found this product dried matte however as I have a really oily T section I found by the end of the day I was oily again and would need to use my powder brush to fix myself.

ive been looking around for a new bb cream for ages that would keep my face matte throughout the day and a good coverage. i do fake tan and i find this product to be a little orange tone at first but once i blend everything out it doesnt look so orange but is still not my colour. for it claiming to matte i really dont think it helps me, i become pretty oily in the t zone after not even an hour of doing anything. but its not that oily and i can put up with it considering im use to it. for coverage i find its very light but good, i do use my revlon photoready concealer (which i recomend everyone with acne or red blemishes) underneath it but is a good coverage, the reason why im still using it is because it is helping my acne and pores so well!! great coverage for pores definetly! would recomend

This oxidizes horribly and turns WAY darker and more orange. Too bad, it had nice coverage and was very mattifying.

This stuff is absolutely amazing. It has great coverage, keeps you matte all day (and I have extremely oily skin too), it blended nicely and looks very natural. I loved it at first, it was like my HG. But then after a few days of using it I started to break out. It was just a few at first but then it became worse and worse every time I used it! I was so sad! So even though this BB cream is amazing, it broke me out terribly. And I don't even have sensitive skin or anything, although I am acne prone.
