This BB has been great for my skin! I can see that this cream may not be preferred by those with a light complexion, but for those with some color, this might be something worth looking into. I have sampled other BBs (Dr. Jart -hard to blend, Sarah McNarama-color off, Tarte-color off) and found for my Asian complexion (yellow undertone),the closest product colors were Bobbi Brown (medium) and NARS (St Moritz). While Bobbi has a SPF of 35, dewy look, antiaging ingredients at 1.35 oz for $42 and being thicker to blend, UDs BB works better for me...the NARS definitely is a better value at 1.9oz for $42, leaves a dewy finish, so no need to add moisturizer, but doesn't have "long lasting" antiaging ingredients :( so UDs BB remains top on my repurchase list until someone comes along that is better.

Light texture and easy to apply
Little portion can go far
Blends into my sun kissed olive complexion
Minimizes fine lines
Coverage is like a sheer/tinted moisturizer
Has antiaging ingredients (haven't used it for > 4 weeks to see the claimed results)
Has SPF 20
No parabens

If you're looking for a beauty balm that covers imperfections, this is not it
Can see poor color match for light skin/pink toned individuals
SPF is only 20
Cost $34 for 1.18 oz
Mattifying lasts only a few hours
Face looks dry and not dewy (I have to use moisturizer underneath to get dewy look :(
Has silicones (may cause acne for some...I use f/x acne primer to avoid any breakouts)
