This is more of a foundation than a BB cream really. The plus side is that it has spf 35 so it eliminates the need for sunscreen. Light to medium coverage. Perfect for everyday.

If Mac ever discontinues this product, I don't know what I would do with myself. This is the only thing I could use on my skin.

This is the BEST American bb cream. It works great as a primer and can also be worn alone (or in my case, mixed with foundation) to achieve desired coverage. Had I not recently fallen in love with a korean bb cream, I would still be using this. You get a lot of product for the price, the packaging is great, and it has a great amount of spf without the grey cast (Wait for it to oxidize. Really.).

I was so excited about this product, but I feel a bit let down. It is a LOVELY primer with very nice light diffusing qualities and high SPF. Plus, my makeup has not slid off my face yet, but that's just it...I need makeup with it. I don't need makeup with my regular BB, maybe just some MSF powder.

If I had purchased this expecting the usual BB cream 8 in 1 and had multiple imperfections to cover up, I would have been highly disappointed. Kudos to MAC for bringing it to North America, and at least they were honest by touting it as a primer.

So yes, I would purchase it again as a primer, but as a BB cream, I think I'll stick with my HG.
