(wearing Garnier BB Cream, Covergirl & Olay Concealer Balm, Stila Illuminating Powder Bronze (cheeks), Benefit Bella Bamba Blush, NYC Lippin Large Lip Plumper Pink Champagne, Urban Decay Aquarius Eyeshadow (over top of L'Oreal Linear Intense Felt Tip Liner, Benefit They're Real Mascara)
I tried a sample of this in medium/deep on a card that was in a magazine, just out of curiosity. I've seen the American BB creams in drugstores for months now but never had the desire to try one. I never saw the point in them because they seen like glorified tinted moisturizers. I'm glad I tried this one though. I love how it looks like my natural skin, only better. This evens out skintone and gives my skin a more polished, glowing looking. Has nice coverage too!
I've now had this on for 10 1/2 hours, and it still looks as fresh as it did when I first applied! I didn't even have to set this with my MAC Studio Careblend pressed powder, which I use everyday to set my makeup with. I usually use the Careblend pressed powder to add more coverage. I'm surprised at how well this covers, while still looking so natural! Also, I didn't have to blot my face at all! Huge plus! I absolutely love not having to blot my t-zone. (that gets so annoying!). i liked this so much upon application (loved the way that it looked) that I ran out to Walmart (only 5 min away) and purchased this in the oil free version. (I chose to try the oil free version because I like to stick with oil free products & my t-zone tends to get oily about halfway through the day.)It was $11.97 for 2 oz, which is a steal. Compared to other foundations/tinted moisturizers/bb creams, where you only get 1 oz. (NARS Sheer Glow is $42 for 1 oz!) Love the tube as well. I think I may have found a more
affordable dupe to my NARS Pure Radiant TM.
