At first, I was wondering why this product wasn’t flying off the shelves, then I realized it is pretty hard to get your hands on it, at least in my shade. I have pretty fair skin right now since my face never sees the sunlight without a strong SPF (working on keeping my skin looking young)
This product pleasantly surprised me... I’ve been on a crazy rabbit hole type of kick on B.B./ CC creams. I’ve been through about 30 different B.B. and cc creams ranging from drugstore to high end, and all but three have failed miserably in someway or another. I’m on prescription tretinoin, and also use tarte knockout during the day, so my skin is pretty dry, but oily in my T-zone. I also take supplements including omega 3 fish oil, and my skin has been oilier than normal the last week or so in those areas. This doesn’t have the best shade selection, but I prefer a lighter B.B. cream or cc cream because I blend from the nose and eyes out, fallowing with bronzer and I dont have to use concealer. It applies well, and blends well for me, blurs my pores and doesn’t cling to dry patches as long as you moisturize before hand. I do use a primer with this since my primer has peptides and all that good skin food jaz. Usually by the end of my day, which I keep my makeup on for about 6-7 hours, my makeup starts to break up, and I have to touch up a couple times. With this product that is definitely not the case. While I was at work, I took a break and checked my face in the bathroom which has terrible lighting (you can see every flaw) and when wearing this product, my makeup looked exactly as it did when I applied it. My blush which is the first thing that fades, had also stayed put! I don’t know if this breaks me out, but I’ve been using it for over a week and haven’t had any problems. I will say that this will work fantastic if you already have pretty good skin. If you don’t have the greatest skin, but want a more natural look and don’t mind using concealer for problem areas, I think you also might enjoy this due to its staying power. It is not a full or even medium coverage product, but it is a great base if you are wanting to do a full coverage look. I don’t like the look of a lot of makeup, so this product is working out really well for me. I definitely recommend this product, but I will say it may take a few times to figure out how you can make it work with other products. I use it with dermalogica skin piece to primer, and it looks great!
