      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..

              I have dry skin and was hoping this would wear like a tinted moisturizer. It made my skin look more dry unfortunately. It wears more like a sunscreen than moisturizer.

                    I was looking for a non-matte foundation for my older skin so I started looking at BB creams as a substitute. This gives just the perfect amount of coverage and glow. Not heavy like most BB creams. Could easily be used under foundation for more concealing power. I have yet to do that because I just love the dewy finish it gives.

                        Absolutely! You can "cocktail" the Illuminating shade with any of the skin tone shades for a tinted luminescent effect.

                        This BB cream is a real multi-tasker! It serves as your tinted moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer in one. It features SPF 20 and light coverage for a healthy, even complexion. It can be used alone or underneath foundation. It is oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic.

                        Yes, this BB cream works beautifully under foundation due to its built-in priming benefits! It smooths skin's texture for even application, plus extends the wear of 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.

                        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.
