I was expecting to totally hate this. The only reason I bought this for my combo/oily skin with large pores is that I hate layering sunblock under foundation, it becomes a greasy mess after 2-3 hours of wear. Got this in the darkest shade 31 to match my spray tan.
Well, this applies like a silicony moisturizer, I spread it with fingers since it feels like a brush or a sponge would thin out the coverage by a lot. The coverage is on a medium side and buildable if you allow the first layer to dry down. Now, why this surprised me:
1. This BB cream does not become a greasy mess. At all. Maybe it is because I apply it just on top of the toner instead of moisturizer and sunblock, so there are fewer layers on my face. I fix this with NYX HD translucent powder and it magically stays put all day. I don't feel it either, it's like walking with a bare face on
2. This smoothened my pores A LOT. Well, visually of course, once it's off my face they are the same craters again, but the silicones in this create a really smooth skin appearance, especially after a thin layer of powder. Concealer applies really well on top of this BB too.
I've ditched my HUDA Faux Filter (shade Brown Sugar) and Becca Ultimate Coverage (shade Olive) for now and am using this. Shade wise, if you, like me, were looking for something more golden than rose, it is actually nice. It's not rosy or ashy at all, more brown.
