I am extremely disappointed in this product. I have only used 2 others, but in comparison this is the worst so far. It is fairly expensive for the amount you get, in fact I think the cap is made...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this BB cream from MAC. Last week, I got the Clarins BB cream and while I really like it, I do find it (the lightest shade they have) to be a bit dark for me. I wish I'd tried...

The MAC sales lady gave me a sample of the ligh plus BB cream. I was hesitant at first since I tried other BB creams before. This stuff is AMAZING! It leaves my skin extremely soft, does not show...
