Need more shades!

By Liv

from Pittsburgh

Comments about CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream:

i really love the finish of this b.b. cream. it's matte without calling up & just really smooths out the skin nicely. it would be my perfect summer base but i can't find a shade that will work for me. i've tried the two lightest shades & both pull very orangey after setting down. during summer (when i'm using this product) i'm a light/medium olive & the shade match is just too off to wear for me :( i wish they would expand their shades but if you can find one that matches you this product is amazing.

    Comments about CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream:

    I have been looking for a good BB cream because I hate wearing foundation in the summer. This stuff is amazing it's so lightweight and has great coverage! I set it with my Mac fix plus and it literally lasts all day! If you don't like to wear foundation I think you should really try this you will not be disappointed.

        Comments about CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream:

        I like this it's lightweight lasts most of the day. But the color range is just ridiculous. I have to mix medium and medium/deep because one is too light and the other too dark. It ends up looking ok but I can't imagine anyone darker than Rihanna wearing the darkest shade. I shouldn't have to mix two to get my shade. It's affordable but come on.

                I saw this B.B. cream on YouTube so I decided to give it a go. I love it ! I didn't want to use my Fenty foundation daily for class. So I wanted something natural but also good coverage. I don't have any breakouts so I'm not sure if it will cover it as a full coverage but if you aren't looking for a good drugstore foundation get the maybelline super stay! But i wanted a lightweight easy routine for class ! I love it so much. It stays on also. Doesn't dry out my skin and I have dry skin! My boyfriend loves it and always thinks I take forever fo do my makeup cause of how flawless it looks! Reality I take 5 minutes ! I love it ! So natural and not cakey. You can even wear it to go out! Deff would buy again esp for the summer when I get tan!

                      A:

                      I'm so glad you asked this question! Scars are tricky to cover in general due to the fact that its texture differs from your natural skin. With white scars though, your skin's natural pigmentation has faded so you will need to use a concealer to fill in the scar and add color back to the area.

                      To start, I recommend applying your Clean Matte BB Cream as you normally would for daily application. ( Across the forehead, down the center of your nose, and upward across your cheeks until fully blended)

                      Next, apply CoverGirl Smoothers Concealer in one shade deeper than your scar's current color (which should match your natural skin tone) The amount to use will depend on the level of coverage needed but a good rule of thumb is to stop applying when the scar has almost disappeared. Once applied, gently pat the concealed area with your index finder to seamlessly blend the concealer into the foundation which will make it undetectable.

                      The final step would be to apply Outlast All-Day Matte Finishing Powder to set the concealed area which will keep the makeup in place throughout the day.

                      Clean Matte BB Cream in shade 520 should work for you if you are currently a shade N1 or N2 in L'Oreal's True Match. I recommend downloading the CoverGirl BeautyU app and virtually trying on this foundation to find your perfect shade.

                      Hello! This formula doesn’t crease in fine lines or the folds of the nose and it’s also not streaky. It does keep you matte with a velvet type finish or demi-matte finish which is really flattering. It is non-comedogenic, oil-free and it will not clog pores so you should not have any issues with breakouts (but we know that every face is different!). We hope you give this COVERGIRL staple a try. Happy summer!

                      Hi! COVERGIRL Clean Matte BB Cream is an excellent option for keeping oily skin under control. You will find the texture to be light and easy to wear and the coverage is just enough to look natural, but minimize the appearance of anything you'd rather not flaunt. I hope you give it a try!

                      A:

                      Hello! The main ingredient in our CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream is water, so this product would be considered water based. While there are silicones in the product, the silicones are non-toxic for both people and the environment. They work as conditioners, providing for velvety-feeling smooth skin. The Clean Matte BB Cream was successfully tested and found to be suitable for those with sensitive skin. If you have any concerns, such as an allergy to silicone, please test it first, on a small area of your skin.

                      Hello! The main ingredient in our CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream is water, so this product would be considered water based. While there are silicones in the product, the silicones are non-toxic for both people and the environment. They work as conditioners, providing for velvety-feeling smooth skin. The Clean Matte BB Cream was successfully tested and found to be suitable for those with sensitive skin. If you have any concerns, such as an allergy to silicone, please test it first, on a small area of your skin.

                    I wear Maybelline Dewy foundation in 330 Toffee. I have a mix between light caramel and bronze. Sometimes my skin can switch between looking yellowish and orange. Should I get 550 or 560 in this product?

                      Hello! If your Golden-matched skintone is Medium-Tan, I would start with the shade Medium in Clean Matte BB Cream. I hope you love it! The formula is amazing.
