      I began using another BB cream while traveling through Europe. When I could not get it here, I chose the ULTA BB cream and think it is wonderful. I especially like the glow that the illuminating color gives.

            Nice lightweight tinted moisturizer for my over 50 combo skin. I can use it as a sheer foundation or as a base for my mineral foundation when I need more coverage. It doesn't settle in my pores and lines-blends in nicely. I like this product better than itcosmetics cc+. The only drawback is, is that it's often sold out at my local Ulta!

                  I have used a lot of BB Creams, but decided to try the ULTA brand for more of a budget, and have found it works just as nice as the more expensive brands, and great for on-the-go and a good base and sunscreen for the face

                  Bought this with my daughter, and figured that she would snag it. I got to it first, and I do love it. At times, I feel a bit old (mid-40's) for the level of sparkle this product contains. However, I am an early bird and get to work an hour or two ahead of everyone else, and by the time they arrive, I no longer look like an escaped vampire from Twilight.

                      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.

                      A:

                      This product's silicone base works wonderfully to "fill in" fine lines and wrinkles to promote smooth, even skin texture. It also contains vitamins A, C, and E, which provide antioxidant and anti-aging benefits to the skin. This multi-tasker serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one and can be layered under any formula of foundation if you feel you need more coverage. Shade Medium may be your best match.
