Looks, smells, and feels like cheap, peachy/orange-y foundation...
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Didn't really like it all that much. Applied to skin with fingers. Left my skin feeling and looking greasy. Very light coverage. Nothing too exciting about it.
Normally I use Cover Girl's Tinted Moisturizer (now repackaged as BB cream) which provides light coverage and I like the texture of CG's bb cream.

I like this product. A lot of reviews say it doesn't give coverage, but I believe it does great for summer! It blends well with my fair skin. I was looking for a great bb cream for summer. I like this one the best!

I understand not everyone wants a lot of coverage, but this literally has no coverage.
It's an awesome idea, and sometimes I'll use it as a sunscreen or a face primer but I feel like it doesn't necessarily keep my foundation on longer.
I enjoy the texture of it and the skincare benefits but if I can't use it as a bb cream, a foundation, or a primer than I'm not really sure how this fits into my routine.
At first I hated the scent, but it's grown on me and I actually enjoy it now.
I think this would be good to wear to a beach where you don't want to sweat off any makeup but you want to even out your skintone and have some spf protection.
I don't hate this but I don't love it- I just don't know when to really use it because it doesn't fit in for my day to day makeup routine.
Not a bad product, but doesn't have enough coverage or staying power as a primer for me.

I don't even understand what this stuff claims to be. Went to sephora, spent 34 dollars on this stuff..and it makes no difference. Doesn't even make my BareMinerals foundation stay on longer. I will use this as a night time cream I guess before I go to bed as it smells minty and feels light. But still, would not repurchase.

Far too expensive for what this is. This provides the least coverage of all BB creams I've ever tried (all Western brands). It feels incredibly moisturizing though, and I was doubtful but able to make it work with some concealer and powder. I like the SPF and the way it feels so hydrating but dries down and doesn't look greasy. Still, just too expensive. Pass.

I really wanted to like this product but I just couldn't. I'm a medium dark black woman and while this felt good on my skin, it left me looking ashy. I actually had to use this under my foundation. There is no way I could use it alone.

I got a little sample of this and it was enough for me to say no no.
This is a super liquify bb cream. I used the Naked liquid foundation before, which left a beautiful and flawfless look but broke me out, so I was a little hesitant that this would break me out. So far it hasn't. It doesn't give me as good as a coverage as the liquid foundation or the smashbox bb cream. What bothers me the most is the scent that it has. Its like weird plastic smell. As a lover of UD, I'm disappointed with this bb cream.

The product appears orange at first, but does self-adjust to your skin tone after its rubbed in. Doesn't cover much, and left my skin with an oily feeling. Haven't noticed much of a difference in my skins appearance but will continue to use At least the rest of the bottle to see if my skin improves over the use of an entire bottle. I did notice the directions say to apply every two hours.. Seems like quite a bit of use is required to see any skin improvements as advertised.

First of all: Wow! Really expensive! Luckily I bought it with a 40% discount at Sephora here in the Netherlands. I'm not surprised about the bad reviews here but for me this works fine. The colour looks great on my fair-medium warm toned skin. No tango effect here ;). It doesn't really cover anything but it does make my pores less obvious. It also makes my wrinkles less visible, big plus! Best things as far as I'm concerned are that it gives a matt glow (matt but not chalky or dry looking) and it doesn't feel greasy (like the Garnier BB). But let's be honest: it's not a BB cream. Not sure if I'll repurchase as 1: too expensive 2: Sephora is pulling its stores from the NL :'( so no more UD for us here.

I was told it was a primer as well as a balm. I was more of a moisturiser. Too expensive for me and I feel I was mislead by the sales woman. Would not buy again

THIS IS NOT A PRIMER DO NOT BUY IT AS A PRIMER. it's made for optical blurring under a primer and foundation. Urban Decay have been clever to produce something that works superbly with their naked foundation and optical blurring brush but not so well with anything else. I do use this as part of my daily routine but I won't be purchasing again.

I have to say this is a "strange" product. I think we all expect SOME coverage along with whatever enhancements BBs provide, but this product is ONLY an enhancer. I like it because it does blur my lines, pores, etc. It does NOT cover. I always use concealer over blemishes. I wear this alone with a touch of blush and have gotten many compliments on how smooth my skin looks? It leaves a smooth, matte finish which I like because I'm very oily. I can understand all the complaints about the ONE shade. I happened to luck out being NC25 with yellow undertones so it's a perfect match for me, but I can't begin to fathom the "universal shade" bit. No way will this match everyone. And yes, the scent is an annoying mint that fortunately disappears immediately after applying. I'm not sure I'd buy this again because of the price, but it is very unique.. UPDATE: I decided I won't buy this again. That smooth, matte finish lasts about an hour and then my face looks greasy and bare, blurring effects are all gone. Haven't gotten anymore compliments on my skin either, heehee. Like I said, "strange" product. I will try another and really can't recommend this one... :(

Ewww. No coverage, dosent sink in just moves around the face when blending !!! Ugly orange color! I guess it's supposed to be used as a blurring primer under foundation?? Diddnt work for me either not even under my naked skin foundation! Waste of money for sure
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I received a sample of this at Sephora. I love the finish, but it is straight up ORANGE! I have fair to medium skin, and this was way too dark for me.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
I got a sample of this when I shopped online at Debenhams under their 'Try Before You Buy' scheme. Glad I was able to try the sample... and return the sealed bottle.
BB Cream? No. Primer? Yes.
It smells like toothpaste - not unpleasant but weird for this type of product. It definitely left a matte finish but felt almost... chalky? Didn't break me out but also do anything for me that another primer wouldn't.
I'm glad I had the option to try before I bought, because it would've been a waste of money had I opened the bottle. If you're unsure on this, I'd suggest going to a store/counter where I could test it first because it really is a pointless product.

got this as a sample and i'm glad i did. i'm one of the fairest of them all, and the ONE color was too dark for me. it didn't smell good at all, and the coverage was nil. i also saw no "optical blurring". usually i feel UD can do no wrong, but this is a flop.

I was looking for a primer in Sephora today and the salesgirl suggested this. I would've never thought to use bb cream as a primer, but it makes so much sense. A primer only takes care of a couple things, while a bb cream is multidimensional. It does a great job of keeping my foundation on longer, while adding other benefits. My skin still looks good after 8 hours. My skin also doesn't feel heavy as it does with other primers and it doesn't clog my pores. I highly recommend this as a primer under your foundation.

This is the first BB cream I have ever tried, so wasn't sure what to expect. I have been using a sample that I got from Sephora the past few days and the results are great! It smells minty, goes on smoothly, but definitely does not provide much coverage at all. I've been using it as a primer with my Revlon Colorstay foundation over it and my skin looks wonderful. It definitely "blurs" my imperfections, which I have giant pores and this does a wonderful job of concealing them. It has a matte finish and my makeup keeps for a few extra hours. Not sure if I'd purchase it, going to try some other bbs first. But I've had a great experience with this so far.
