      I did not see in the product description nor in any of the reviews that this product has glitter in it - otherwise I would have never bought it! I bought it online and at least I got it on sale so I don't mind as much. I used it once and it is kind of orange and made my whole face glittery, I then put foundation on top to try to combat the sparkle. I will not be using this again.

        this is a good product to use when you don't want to spend alot on the big brands. and, Ulta offers sales on their products often. my complaint is that Ulta seems to have a problem keep supply available. I have this problem often at several local Ulta stores. it's especially frustrating when you have a sale and you don't have the items in stock and no one seems to know when you will. I have also been told by staff that the product will be in on Friday only to make the drive and find out you didn't receive it in the delivery. Why would you advertise items and then not have them in stock. Not an isolated instance, this happens often.

              Use this as base and top off with Bare Minerals powder. Light but effective coverage betweent the two. Need to buy online because color usually not available at the store and those at the store have soemtimes been opened (tested).

              I use this daily for quick coverage and silky finish. By lunchtime it has faded, possibly due to somewhat oily t-zone area.

                This BB cream is a very light weight product. I have also noticed changes is in my skin tone after using it for about 3 weeks. You may not like it if you like heavy coverage which I hate, (feel smothered in heavy makeup). It's just right for me and I feel that it moisturizes great..

                      How does this BB cream compare to Tarte's BB cream? Tarte is my current regimen, but I would love to switch to Ulta's brand, which is more affordable.

                        A:

                        The formulas are very similar. Both products provide sheer coverage with broad spectrum SPF 20 sun protection. Both are oil-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, formulated for all skin types, and provide light hydration. Both contain vitamins A, C, and E, chamomile, green tea, and hydrating sodium hyaluronate. Tarte's contains Amazonian Clay to balance the skin. Tarte's formula is paraben-free, while ULTA's is not.

                        BB Cream 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.

                        A:

                        Because this product features a silicone base, we do not recommend mixing it with your moisturizer. Instead, apply your moisturizer first, then layer this product over top. We recommend using your fingers to apply it to the skin. Once applied, you can blend and buff using a makeup brush or sponge, depending on your preference, or you can blend using your fingers.
