      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics BB Cream:

      I love this product! I have never used a BB cream before. A few years ago I tried a tinted moisturizer from a well-known makeup company, and did not like it at all-- I felt it didn't have enough coverage, and left me looking greasy. I was in Ulta looking for a foundation, (again with no make up on so whoever helped me could see what kind of coverage I really needed), and asked for assistance. I did not want to spend over $20 for a product, and was very surprised when this was recommended to me. I have naturally medium/dark skin with evidence of sun damage accumulated throughout the years. Also, I have developed some rosacea, so I do like a product with medium coverage. Also, whenever I try to choose a foundation for myself, the color rarely looks natural when I get it home! The associate who recommended it to me told me that it was a great product, and that Smashbox actually makes NYX, so you are buying a great quality product at a lesser price. She was actually wearing this BB cream herself, and I liked how natural it looked. I was concerned that it wouldn't have enough coverage, but she said that you can easily build it up and blend it, and this is true, even though it feels very light when you apply it. I use it with a makeup sponge, and build and blend over the redder areas on my cheeks and chin. I love the color, and it looks very natural. The best part that it absolutely does not get shiny or wear off throughout the day! I am so happy that I bought this!

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics BB Cream:

      I was hoping for a little more coverage from this BB cream, but it's pretty sheer. I've had trouble with this and the Garnier BB cream making my t-zone oily by the end of the day, more so than other foundations I use. This one is easy to apply and the Natural color fits my light/medium complexion well. The main downsides to this BB cream are that it has no SPF in it and it smells really floral perfume-y to me, so if you're sensitive to fragrance, avoid this. I like BB creams because I can just use my hands to apply it quickly, so this one fits that bill, but it's not as great as I was hoping for all around.

        I love this BB cream! Most drugstore BB creams leave me greasy mid-day, but this minimizes shine and lasts very well! It is sheer to light coverage. I top it with a mineral powder, and wear it everyday! The color doesn't turn orange (a problem with other drugstore BB creams).

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics BB Cream:

        I think this is best for short term wear (less than 12 hrs) and it works great with my oily skin. It mostly keeps me matte when I use a translucent powder over it.

            Use this every day during the summer for a natural look and super even coverage. I use this to hide piercing scars, as well as uneven skin tone and it lasts all day even in humid weather.

              I got this product to use on good skin days, since it is light coverage. I got it because i was going on vacation and i needed something light weight and it just ended up breaking me out. Other than the fact that it broke me out it is a good product.
