My skin: I'm 41, mostly normal to combination skin these days, prone to acne and dehydration with large pores, sometimes a bit of flaking and the beginning of a few fine lines. My best foundation shade matches are Make Up Store Sculpt Excellence in Cashew, MAC Face and Body in C1 and Estée Lauder Double Wear Light in 1W2. My main issues with foundations and complexion products tend to be that they settle in my pores, won't stick to my nose, separate quite easily on the nose and cake up around it. Luminous/hydrating formulas often look better there, but can slide around a bit, and I generally get better results with water-based foundations than silicone-based.
I have a mini of this in shade 21, and I really like the shade. I have muted olive/neutral undertones, and the greyish olive undertone to this one works quite well on me. I also really enjoy the look and finish of this. It gives a nice, skin-like low to medium coverage on me, lasts well and looks very pretty. I generally set it with loose powder, it doesn't really set itself.
However, I'm sad to say that it breaks me out. I get a smattering of small whiteheads whenever I wear it for a few days in a row. It's not the most terrible reaction as breakouts go, I don't get any huge, inflamed pimples, and I can still wear it occasionally without a noticeable breakout. But it's clearly not suitable as an everyday kind of BB cream for me, and that's a bummer. I really do like how it looks and wears on my skin.
It's pretty heavily fragranced, which is always unnecessary, and for all I know, the fragrance could be the culprit. I can't identify anything that I know triggers breakouts for me in the ingredients, but that's hard to tell, anyway. It may be something else entirely. Anyway, I'll probably keep using it occasionally until my small tube runs out, but I won't repurchase. It is a lovely BB cream, though, and it clearly works for a lot of people, without causing breakouts. Worth a try, especially if you can get hold of the mini.
