    Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

    I love Urban Decay products but because they're so pricey, I started searching for a less expensive substitute. I stumbled across the Ultra brand BB Illumintating cream by accident in store and have found that although the coverage is lighter than the Urban Decay counterpart, it's still a great product for a fraction of the price and I'm very happy I found it. Definitely an incredible buy whenever the 2 for 2 sales are on.

      Comments about ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20:

      The first day I used this product I was told I was Glowing! That says something in and of itself. After application my face is shiny on my forehead and cheeks which is why I only gave the product 4 stars. It applies smoothly and has enough pigmentation to soften uneven skin tones. It is not highly pigmented so it won't cover dark under eye circles or blemishes but if you only need a little softening this is great. The added sunscreen makes everyday wear wonderful.

            My skin is somewhat fair and I bought the lightest color possible. It was too dark and somewhat orange. I have used many BB creams and the Fair or Light color always works for me.

              I was surprised how much it oxidized. It turned very orange about 20 minutes after application. The color was pretty dark for fair/light skin initially.

                I am very pale and thought the Illuminating color would work best for me, but it is still too dark even though it is a lighter coverage than it said it would be.

                      Unopened and stored at room temperature and out of direct sunlight, most cosmetics last approximately 3 years. :-)

                      To be on the safe side, we recommend visiting your nearest Ulta Beauty store to test both Illuminating and Light shades to see which you prefer. Illuminating is the safest bet, we'd guess! :-)

                      A:

                      BB stands for "beauty balm"; a BB cream is a multi-purpose face product that provides sheer-to-medium coverage, features skin perfecting benefits such as optical blurring pigments and/or skincare ingredients, and hydrates the skin. Many BB's including this one also feature sun protection.

                      CC stands for "color correcting"; a CC cream typically features all the same benefits as a BB, plus provides color correcting benefits/ingredients to minimize the appearance of discoloration and/or uneven skin tone.

                      BB's and CC's typically provide sheerer coverage than a traditional foundation, but many who prefer fuller coverage use BB's and CC's prior to foundation application to provide the benefits detailed above plus prep the skin for makeup application.

                      ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 provides sheer, natural coverage. It provides SPF 20 sun protection, helps to even out skin tone, and provides lightweight hydration. It is suitable for all skin types and works great as a makeup primer applied under your foundation.

                      We hope this extra info helps! :-)

                      It does not have a sparkle additive, but it does have a very fine radiant pearl that would leave you with a dewy finish.
