Rated 4.28 out of 5 stars
I just got this a week ago because my incredibly oily skin and 80 degrees with humidity DO NOT go well together. I've looked and looked for years to try to find something that works whether it was primer, powder, setting spray, foundation, you name it. A friend recommended this BB cream to me and I got it because it was cheap. Turns out it was everything I was looking for. Awesome coverage to hide acne and acne scars as well as blendable and a smooth soft matte finish. Couldn't be happier Covergirl, props to you :)))
This product is actually pretty good. It keeps me matte, it's lightweight, has a high medium coverage, and blends really well with a beauty blender. I would love to give it 5 stars however I'm really disappointed with the shade range. I have light skin with a more yellow undertone so I picked up the shade "Light" but it has a more pink undertone so my face ended up looking pink. I then picked up the shade "Light/Medium" because it looked like it had a more yellow undertone but when applied, it looked orange. Covergirl, PLEASE add more yellow toned shades! Actually, not just yellow toned shades but more deep shades as well! This product is so good but not everyone can use it because of the shade range. :(

I don't go for much makeup daily but do like to even out my skin tone due to redness to my nose and cheeks. I had mostly given up on makeup when wearing a mask because it always rubbed off and looked weird with a red nose but makeup hanging on every where else. I've tried a mix of high end foundations (creams, powders, and liquid) and on a whim picked this one up in fair.
Coverage is better than I expected for a BB cream. Definitely evens out my tone without being full coverage. Even with a mask for 6-8 hours it holds in better than others. Yes it wears some on my nose but nothing like others I tried. It stays matte for me and still looks fresh after work. In the morning I even just use my fingers to apply.
Given that the price isn't outrageous I'd suggest anyone on the fence try it especially if they have oily skin and don't need full coverage.

This is the best BB crème hands down. The only critique I have is I wish it came in a lighter color. I've been using this for 10 plus years and I honestly don't know what I'll do if they ever discontinue it. I used to use the triangle sponges dry before and now use a damp beauty blender. I have rosacea and it covers that. It's not full coverage which is fine as I don't need that.

I'm 31 years young. I've been searching and searching for the best face makeup for my reddish, neutral, oily skin since I was 14. Nothing has ever made me feel so confident as this BB cream. It's light, but covers imperfections, and makes me feel like I'm wearing nothing! Put on with a beauty sponge it is my go-to, my holy grail.

I have used this product for years now, and have gone back and forth to other products, but have always came back to this one! I have extremely extremely oily skin and this helps control it SO WELL. i HATE using powder in my face my skin just does not mix well with it and this stuff seems to dry down in a way and doesn't transfer. i recommend this to anyone who's has acne/oily skin. it blends so well and melts onto my face and looks so so natural. in LOVE.

First of all, the shade range is really terrible. I have very fair skin and even I couldn't find my shade. The lightest one was too light, and the next one up was too orange so I had to buy both and mix them together. I was looking for a lightweight tinted moisturizer that I could quickly apply with my fingertips on the days I don't want to wear a full face of makeup. I found this very heavy. It has the same coverage as my foundation and needs to be applied with a beauty blender or it gets streaky
Mariah from VA
I've been searching for a good foundation for forever. I've tried expensive, cheap, and everything in between. This is the very first one I've loved and it's not even a foundation! It lays on my skin like a dream, I can't feel it, and it stays matte for hours! I'm so glad that covergirl is fully cruelty free now. My only issue (and it's a pretty big one) is that the shade range needs to be improved upon. That's why it doesn't get five stars. Do better guys!
Daria from Pennsylvania
I love this BB cream because the shade was perfect and it really provides a nice coverage. Problem is, it's drying on my cheeks. It was great for my super oily far-head but I can't use it anywhere else. I came back hoping covergirl had a non matte version but nope.

i DID NOT LIKE THIS PRODUCT. it caked my face, settled into my fine lines, AND SPLATTERD EVERY WHERE ON MY CLOTHING. YEAH NO THANKS COVERGIRL. I EXPECTED MORE THAN THIS
jojo from USA
always looked for something light (in coverage texture) and matte. luckily, this product ended up being my favorite product! it's matte, the coverage is light-medium (yet still covers my redness), and i can barely feel it on my face! the only con i can say is that the shade range is abysmal (honestly, do better!).
zodiac lover from minnesota
what can i say? it's not the best bb cream i've ever tried. does cling to a few dry spots on my face, but makes my t-zone VERY oily. maybe for those lucky people who have "normal" skin and no acne or blemishes of any sort
ech from texas
i love love loved this for awhile then it really started to break me out and my dermatologist said that cover girl can sometimes do that to some people which suuucks but if you have good skin then this is great

I think this would work better on people with dry skin. It's way too oily for me.

WOW just WoW! I have been on the hunt for a BB/CC cream that I can use on days I don't want to put a full face on and I found it. I have tried just about every BB/CC cream on the market. Recently I bought IT, Garnier, this and the new UD's Hydromaniac. IT was so thick and goopy and all of the colors I tried turned orange on me. Garnier was super greasy and color was orange, and UD's was a close second to Covergirl. UD's is a nice lightweight formula, yet it took a couple tries to find the right shade for my neutral tone. As for Covergirl, it is my favorite by far. Not only does it match my skin tone perfectly, but I also only have to dab a few dots to cover my entire face. I get a gorgeous natural flawless look and don't have to set with powder. I apply with my fingers and they use my bb at the end. I tried applying with brush but that did not work. I did apply with my bb sponge and I get great results but with a little soaking up by my bb. If your looking for a new BB cream, check this out.

If I had to describe this product with only one word, it would be meh. The coverage is ok as well as the wear time. I will say that this product cakes up easily even when applying small amounts.
The shade range and undertones for this product are laughable. There's no reason for it to be so limited. For that reason I will not be purchasing again.
Sam from Oklahoma City, OK
I've tried at LEAST 50 foundations within the last year trying to find the best one for my oily skin and this is the winner. It stays on all day. Doesnt crease on me. STAYS matte but even on my extra oily days it just leaves a beautiful sheen like my skin but better! Coverage is amazing. If you're looking for a light wash of color, this isn't it unless you mix with a moisturizer. This foundation is medium coverage but doesn't feel heavy. My biggest complaint is the shade range. Even the fair shade is too dark for me and it's very pink on my olive skin. I didn't think it was a big deal until I walked outside and saw the major difference from my jawline to my neck. PLEASE Cover Girl, consider lighter shades and a range of undertones!
Maura from New York
Ive never used a BB cream that I like before; I usually find them to not have enough coverage, and they will usually get greasy on me pretty quickly. This is totally different! It's enough coverage that it's replaced my foundation while still being natural looking. I set with loose translucent powder all over and it doesn't get greasy at all. I'm so happy with this product!
Al from ND
It's hard to believe that this is just a BB cream. It's moisturizing, buildable and has pretty good coverage for a BB cream. I would
Compare this to the IT cosmetics CC cream, but way more affordable. I've tried a lot of different BB creams and this is by far my favorite!
Becky from Atlanta, GA
This product is super light weight. Looks natural on skin. Flawless finish. Great with combination skin.
Melody G from Dallas, Texas
It make my skin look cakey even when I used no powder. Also made my eczema reactive by giving me rashes on my face.
Jess from Pennsylvania
I stopped using drugstore foundation years ago but decided to try this one and I love it! I have combination oily skin. This blends in nicely on my skin and I'm glad it doesn't make me look too pale or cakey.
Lily from NYC, New York
there are not enough good things to say about this bb cream. it's easily one of the best face products i've used. i choose this over my IT cc cream half the time. it's perfect for everyday use but ive also worn it out and it photographs perfectly. it makes me look so fresh with the best looking skin! doesn't sink into lines, doesn't emphasize texture, looks smooth & isn't overly matte. i wish it came in more colors but i'll be buying it over & over again for sure.
AmieBPS from STL
I was shocked by this. I reply on Estee Lauder Double Wear for my base as it is the only one I have found to truly last on my oily skin all day long and still look amazing. But, it is expensive! I have tried pretty much every matte foundation out there. I wanted something light for weekends or errands that would just cover my hyperpigmentation and blemishes so I tried this BB cream. The first time I tried it I wore it to work and ended up using two layers which covered everything very well (I used a damp sponge, and my usual primer and setting spray). It lasted the entire day - 6 am to 6 pm, without any breakthrough shine at all. Did not break down, did not separate. I was shocked. No other actual foundations came close to this performance except my beloved Double Wear. The only big problem I have is the shade range, I have very warm, olive undertones. I have to mix two shades and it is still not warm enough on my skin to actually match. If they would extend the color range and undertones, this product would be tops. I still cannot believe it. NOTHING keeps my shine at bay. This did - and all day too. Did not sit in my wrinkles either. Now add some more colors and undertones Cover Girl! I am 40 with oily skin for reference.
Bella Mama from State College Pa
I usually love this brand. But it was more expensive at Ulta and the product itself made my pretty skin look so dry and flaky and showed every line I have and I didn't think I have that many!
Liz from WA
I wanted to like this so bad. I have oily skin with big pores, and I prefer light to medium coverage. However the lightest shade was too dark for me. I am NC10-NC15. Unfortunately this just will not work for me. The formula is alright, definitely matte as described though a little too drying. It did nothing for my pores or texture.
magkneesium from Atlanta, GA
Since quarantine I have not worn much makeup but this is always a go-to whether I'm going casual or building up a glam makeup look.
Evens out skin tone, blends nicely, and feels clean.
It doesn't come in very many shades so I left out a star.
