Caused breakouts after one week of use. Didn't like the fact that the product sat on top of my skin and easily came off on my phone etc. Color was great for my fair complexion.

    I don't usually write reviews, thats how good this stuff is. I have been dealing with acne and oily skin my whole life and have literally tried everything. This is the first product that I have used that A) actually keeps my face matte and B) doesn't make me breakout! I wear it under my foundation (clinique clear solutions) to help with shine and then apply mac blot powder over. My skin has never looked so good

        I love the BB crème, it covers my sun spots and matches my skin tone. I've always had a hard time finding makeup that matches my skin tone and that doesn't splotch.

          this is great and my go to when I'm not using a full coverage foundation. The only bad thing I found about this was when I bought it at the time I had already heard great things about it and did not care to swatch a color on my skin. I'm generally a pretty tan girl, but since it is winter my skin is a little on the lighter side but not as light as a fair color. So I assumed I was the light/medium shade but it was WAY too dark, which is mostly my fault for not testing it first. Other than that LOVE it, and a great gift received from the sister.

            I have used Bare Minerals.. but it was starting to make me look extremely pale. So I went to Ulta to get some stuff to help to give more of a flawless complexion. Well I was introduced to this. LOVE it! My face is flawless, picture perfect overall gorgeous.. it even helps my skin. At first it was caky like (I have dry skin) so I went and got a good moisturizer with oatmeal in it started using that and primer my face is no longer caky like... it's flawless, I can not believe it's my skin! It looks and feels amazing!!!! I also bought the conceal and highlighter.. to match, my kit came with the halo powder. It was all worth it. Will buy more.

            I was very disappointed when Smashbox quit making my favorite foundation (can't remember what it was called but it came in a plastic airtight pump). To me that was the perfect foundation, and in comparison this is the closest it gets. It's not as vibrant looking, is a bit more greasy than I like, and makes me break out a tiny bit, but it is still very good. This will probably be my staple foundation until I'm introduced to something better.

                  I have light skin with red undertones. Medium was way, way too dark. I am auburn with green eyes, but not "fair" skin. Thoughts on what shade I should try?

                  thank you.

                • Q:

                  Is this BB cream oil free? I LOVED the oil free tinted moisturizer that Smashbox used to make but they stopped when they came out with this product. It this truly oil free? No just without "mineral oils" but ANY oil? The oil free tinted moisturizer was one of the best products I have found - color, texture and it never caused me any breakouts. I'm just about to use up the last of the tubes of it that I had stocked up on when I heard it was going away so it's time to start thinking about as new one but I am concerned about break outs.

                  I have very light skin with yellow undertones. In Urban Decay's foundation, I wear a 1.0 and it is a perfect match. Will the lightest shade be too dark or pink for me?

                  I am planning on using this cream primarily in the summer. I have the light color of the Smashbox foundation. Would you recommend I try light/neutral or light/medium? I tan pretty well.
