I'd really been looking forward to this product, but i was totally crushed. The shade Medium was way too pink for my yellow toned skin, very runny, and gave very little coverage. After about three hours, this bb cream was absorbed by my skin and basically just disappeared from my face. The packaging was cute, but really annoying. I unscrewed the cap one day, and product just came pouring out! I hadnt even been squeezing the bottle with my fingers. This happened several more times over the course of a week. It seems that, whether the tube is lying flat or standing up, the product collects at the bottom so that the cream comes out whenever it's opened, leaving a mess on my fingers. Maybe it was because I had expectations that were too high, but I'll definitely be returning this to the drugstore.
i mainly got this because it made Emma Stone's skin look beautiful, not that i actually needed it (i have a bunch of other foundations that im loving like colorstay and estee lauder's double wear). but I've totally fallen in love with foundation. My shade, Warm Beige, matches my skin perfectly. When i first put it on my skin, it appeared to be really orange (like in the bottle), but it blends out really nicely, AND i dont even feel the foundation on my skin. i would say that it's light to medium coverage, so people that need to cover up more should probably use a little concealer beforehand. However, it did catch on a dry patch i have on my left cheek. So the next day i tried it again, moisturizing beforehand, and it was fine. It's liquid-y and does leave my skin looking a little more radiant/dewy so oily skinned people might be a little scared but they should try using this foundation with the matching powder. The powder is freakin amazing! It controlled my oily t-zone(i have an oily t-zone and a dry cheeks) really well. I didnt need a touchup until about eight hours later. Ontop of that, the powder adds a little bit of coverage - the powder is really finely milled and it doesnt leave any fallout when i swirl my kabuki brush in it. The only gripe i have is that it doesnt come with a pump. Since this product is really liquid-y, it's really easy to pour too much out.
