      I tried this product once and will be retuning it. This product has a shimmer to it. I did not like the look it gave me. I feel this product is better suitable for a female in her teens or twenties that want an all over shimmer to her face.

        Love love love this product! Lightweight and easy to use. I wear it daily and the best part is it does not make my face break out like other products can. I like how it is sheer and makes it seem like you do not have make up on and you have a natural look.

        I really like using this product versus actual foundation because it doesn't feel so thick and heavy on my face. Or shall I say, I don't feel as though I have "painted" my face when I use this like I do when I use actual foundation.

          The illuminating is right for light skin tones if you can accept tiny sparkles. The Light is too dark and orange for nw20.

          Wanted to try to see how it compared to smash box bb cream and it does not at all. It is not at all tinted moisturizer and it made my skin very oily shortly after putting it on

            • Q:

              What is the difference between bbcream, cc cream and foundation? For any brand for that matter.

                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! :-)

            • Q:

              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.

            • Q:

              Do I apply the bb cream before or after the foundation primer?

                A:

                No primer is necessary, since ULTA BB Cream features built-in priming benefits! :-) If you prefer to use a primer anyway, apply BB cream after your primer for best results!

              I have a question about the shades of this product. I currently wear Rimmel's Stay Matte Foundation in Light Ivory - would 'Light' suit my skin color or should I buy Illuminating as well and mix the two? Thanks!

                A:

                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! :-)
