The SPF on this is a great addition (I bought it for use overseas), but there is something in this formulation which makes my skin on my nose dry and peel if I use it every day :( Coverage is more than I expected from a BB cream, it applies pretty well and the finish is not too matte or flat (though can get a little cakey on dry areas and over enlarged pores). I will use this up (it's lasted for ages!) but I definitely won't repurchase.

I don't use much much anymore because i find it too heavy. This made my skin break out terribly. I haven't used it in 6 days and my skin is still suffering for the few days I used it. But when I did you it i really like the coverage it gave.

Good coverage, matches my skin tone well but, it makes my face look so dry!

this is my first bb cream and it is everything i had hoped. it provides spf protection and has the perfect amount of coverage. even though my skin is generally spot free, i tend to be a little ruddy across my cheeks and nose. this provides enough coverage to even my skin out, and also acts as a great base for other makeup. i use this with tarte blissful cheek stain and my skin looks super healthy and fresh.

I have been using Mac bb cream for a few weeks and love it! I have oily break out prone skin and was very worried about trying a new product. This is great; no break outs and I like that it does not look like a mask, but still build-able if I need more coverage. It also keeps my skin from looking too oily. I am very fair, with blue eyes, some redness- but the lightest color was too light for me, so I'm wearing number 2 out of 3, called "light"

I tried the MAC BB Cream in hopes of finding a shade that better matched/complimented my skin than the MISSHA I've been using for over a year. This was my first MAC purchase, so I don't know what my regular MAC shade would be. The consultant chose Light Plus for me, and indeed this is a better color for me than a mix of MISSHA 21 & 23.

Although I am happy with the color, this doesn't provide the coverage I've been accustomed to with the thicker MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream. Also, I've been having little whiteheads all over with this product. I'm thinking of exchanging it for a non BB foundation. Even with a generous application of powder on top, I'm just not getting the even/polished look I prefer.
