To give you some background on me, I have very very very dry skin and have been looking for a moisturizer that would make my foundation go on smoothly and evenly and this does exactly that! I use te nivea creme at night before I go to bed and in the morning underneath my makeup. This may sound bad or gross but it recreates having oily skin for me , and that's actually really good! I just apply powder over my foundation where I look too greasy but then it leaves me with a dewey, healthy, natural finish! I even got compliments on how healthy my skin looked. I haven't broke out from this but I have only used it for a few days and since it makes my skin so oily I'm waiting to get a breakout and I will edit if I do! In short, I you have dry, dull, skin this stuff works wonders!!
So I has left a rave review when I first got this product in early September because I really loved it. It worked wonders on my oily skin! But now that summer has passed and my skin has returned to be a little drier it's absolutely HORRID. I apply it in the morning after generous amounts of moisturizer and a very oily primer. By 11, it's completely off my face (it has sunken in I guess?) except for my nose and forehead which is orange and flaking off my face. It's actually better if I just don't wear makeup at all than when I wear this. For anyone with combination or at all dry skin, don't use!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these glosses! I got two of them from my mom, I think in pink pop and then the light pink one that's almost frosty. The pink pop one looks absolutely amazing on and isn't too thick or heavy. The color stays on for a looooonnggg time also. Pretty glossy, but not overdone! Uh-mazing.

I usually use estee Lauder double wear foundation but I decided to try this because I heard so much hype about it. I was hoping that it would mostly smooth out the coloring on my face; I have red blotches above my eyebrows, red blotches on my cheeks and on my upper lip. When I put on the bb cream, my skin was still red And blotchy. If didn't smooth my complexion at all. The only thing it did was disguise these bumps I have on my cheek, but they are already skin colored. All in all I wasn't really impressed with the product.
I bought this product when it first came out about a year ago. I love Taylor Swift, Covergirl, Natural Products and I got a great deal! I actually bought the foundation, mascara and lip color. When I went home and applied the foundation, it looked great and I was really excited until, I looked in the mirror later. It had all come off AND I had red splotches all over my face that became itchy later. Also on my hand, where I had first put it and then transferred it to my face, was red and itchy. Needless to say, I am VERY allergic to this product. It must be some of the natural ingredients because I have NEVER had that happen to me before. It's a goood product, but beware!
I have bought this product three times. Once in 115, Once in 125 and then another 115. When I use a small amount, i can make it look really natural, but overall it is very thick for me and just masks my skin. I wouldn't buy this again, but it's definately my fall back foundation when I run out of others.
