This is a staple in my make up bag, and has been for several years. I keep trying other foundations and tm's and bb's, but keep coming back to this. I definitely notice a color correcting factor, my 50 year old skin looks smooth and it wears well. It is very quick and easy to apply with just fingers when you are in a hurry or don't want to mess with a brush or a beauty blender. I wear the the shade light and it looks great even with some self tanner making me a tad darker.

This product is essential for summer days. It provides amazing coverage & really does cover redness, pigmentation & blemishes. The smell is refreshing & reminds me of lemon pound cake.

My only negative is due to its high spf the formula can feel quite sticky & wet. However with some powder & setting spray it feels a lot nicer.

Love love love this. I have many foundations that I use as well, but if I could only have one, this is it. Also SPF 50! I use it at least 3-4 times a week. Always looks great. my skin is dry, I think if you're oily this is not for you.

again I hate when people put reviews about other products and incorporate it with other products. LOL this product by itself works great. if you're reviewing a beauty blender for example you should say I really don't like this beauty blender because it doesn't work with other products! Has nothing to do with this. it's a great product and we're lucky it's around because just like all other great skincare products has a life Shelf not very long. Get it while it's hot get it while it's good get it while you can. :-)

The color match was decent for me in the fair. It covered redness well but it's certainly not full coverage by any stretch, which for me is a positive but if you need heavy duty covering look elsewhere. The biggest con for me was that is sank in to and accentuated every single pore on my cheeks near my nose. It clung to dry patches. It settled in to wrinkles. And it felt really dry as well.

I'm glad I didn't like it - for the price there are much better options out there.

This is flat out fabulous!!!! I have combo to oily with slight acne prone skin. This makes my skin look flawless and my skin looks like skin!! My skin looks airbrushed in photos and it wears well without breaking down too much. Coverage is medium and perfect. Love the skin benefits and SPF. Fab product. I applied with my fingers and one pump is more than enough.

I had heard so many good things about this CC cream but it did not work for me. I love the pump tube packaging and I love how it has SPF 50 however that's where it stops. The coverage is decent for a CC cream but no where near full coverage. Also the colors were kind of yellow for me. I'm NW30 and I got the medium shade. I put it on my face without powder and went into the light and my face and neck were 2 different colors. This can easily be fixed with setting powder though. Also it just doesn't last. The SPF is a huge plus but as soon as it gets hot this was completely gone. It didn't fade patchy but I just had nothing left on my face. I think this would be good if you have dry skin and like light coverage but it didn't work for me :(

As an Esthetician, I am VERY careful about what I put on my face. Currently, I am pregnant and dealing with some hyperpigmentation around my mouth due to pregnancy hormones breaking me out in the first trimester. This CC cream does an amazing job at covering those discolorations. It gives better coverage than most foundations in my opinion. I also love the fact that is has SPF 50! I purchased the travel size to make sure I liked it before I bought the regular size. I will be going to purchase the larger one.

I've been using this for the course of a year now and all I can say is that I love this product. I have normal/dry skin with early signs of aging. I'm 42 btw. This is not a full coverage foundation. It covers more than a tinted moisturizer and it does even out skin tone mine is light/med olive tone skin so I didn't experience the weird pink, grey ashy tone, or the ompalumpa orange cast, or the kabuki white cast theater look that you can get with other bb/cc creams. This cc cream give me a natural satin finish with only slight dewiness. I'm only speaking for myself when I say it doesn't look pasty looking like other bb/cc creams which would only exaggerates the appearance any lines or wrinkles that you have. I think it is best applied with the hands and buffed out with a brush. My only grip about the product is the price $38 and I got mine at Ulta and I'm disappointed that they don't offer promotional sets like they do for all the other cosmetics in their other prestige brand, or promotional set combos like they do on QVC. I have this in medium, but during the summer it is a little to light for my skin so I hate the ideal of buying another in tan just to deepen the shade.

Yet another great product I wouldn't know about if not for MUA!

Formula:
I haven't tried a liquid foundation since the old Clinique days in the late 90s, early 2000s--and things sure have changed! This goes on very smooth, blends easily, and looks natural. I don't care for the 6 billion ingredients, but so far nothing has irritated or broken me out (hasn't really been long enough to tell about the latter, though I'm really prone to the former, so I'm considering it a good sign). It's somewhat thicker than a tinted moisturizer, and is a bit siliconey feeling, but not as much as, say, an Asian sunscreen. Speaking of which, I'm amazed that this has SPF 50, though I'm sure I'm not getting that much coverage since I'm not using nearly 1/4 teaspoon--that would make for a super masklike appearance, I'm sure. But I am pleased that it has some sun protection.

Scent:
There is fragrance in this, though it dissipates fairly quickly and is not very strong. It smells like some kind of citrus essential oil (orange, maybe? Grapefruit), which I don't really mind, even though I'm usually sensitive to fragrance. It's tolerable.

Color:
Here is where It Cosmetics could improve. I have quite yellow skin, especially for a caucasion, and the Fair color is the right amount of yellowness (though a tiny touch too dark). So I'd say this BB tends to be on the extreme end of yellow, which won't suit many skin complexions! I almost returned this because it is a touch too dark with just a swatch, but once I blend it in and cover my face/neck it doesn't look dark at all. I'm assuming this is due to the light-reflecting properties. But suffice it to say not many folks will find a suitable color match, which is a shame, since the coverage is fairly heavy and a color match is important!

Coverage:
Speaking of which, this covers better than any tinted moisturizer I've used and as well as many liquid foundations. That said, if I have a pimple I'm going to need a bit of concealer (or some of this BB as a spot concealer). It also doesn't completely cover my undereye circles, but I didn't expect it to. It does, however, make them a lot better. I'd call this a medium coverage.

Finish:
I really like the finish on this. Very natural--not matte or dewy at all--and gives my skin a bit of a glow. I am a bit oily on the T zone and will powder that area to keep it from getting shiny as the day goes on, but it's probably not entirely necessary.
