      This is my new everyday face routine! This provides a lightweight, luminous, non-greasy coverage that does NOT melt off halfway through the day. It blends into the skin easily. It works great with cream highlight sticks. If you're looking for full coverage, heavy duty this is not for you. If you're looking for an every day look that's natural but has a bit of glow, this is it!

                  After receiving this product, I immediately returned it. It comes out of the tube pigmented, but when you put in on its more like a lotion. There was zero coverage. I don't know if I got a bad batch but I won't buy again.

                      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! :-)

                    Does this BB cream, in light, have a shimmering, sparkle additive to represent 'dewy' appearance?

                      A:

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

                      Light is what we'd recommend for you! Mixing it with Illuminating wouldn't make it any lighter, it would just add a dewy glow finish to it, so you certainly could mix them if you like that effect! :-)
