How to Use
Rated 4.29 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 have super oily skin, and this BB cream helped me. I breakout a ton, but didn't using this. It was a great shade, and covered all of my pimples and acne scars. It is a great price for such a good product. I just love this product so so much!
Madi from Georgia
Feels and looks great on my oily skin! It even sits well on a couple dry patches that I have due it being winter season where I am. My only qualm with this line is that there should be more color options. For reference, I wear shade fair in this formula and wear shade 150 in fenty beauty soft matte foundation.
Shelly from Long Island
This product is fairly lightweight, does not crease, and has fairly decent coverage for a bb cream. If you can find your shade range and what clean makeup means.
Meg from NJ
I really love this as a daily foundation since I don't always like to put on a full face. This a great your skin but better foundation. It smooths out my skin and evens out my color. And I can just work it in with my fingers!
Jo from Buffalo, NY *GO BILLS*
I absolutely love this! I've used tons of prestige brand tinted moisturizers, bb & cc creams. This one is my favorite for oily/combination skin. And the peel is it's a drugstore brand under $10! I wanted something to give me a more evened out look but not as much coverage as my foundation. This did the trick! It's super lightweight and evens out skin tone without looking like you have much on the skin. It stays matte all day. I set it with a little setting powder, blush & bronzer.
Sam from LA
Omg I absolutely love this. it looks like a super natural full coverage foundation. It feels so good on my skin and covers up my redness. This is exactly what I was looking for. And it really does stay matte. I prefer this now over my full coverage foundations.

This one surprised me. Looking at the packaging, it looked way too dark for me but it was a perfect match. It applies smoothly and leaves a lovely finish. I'm in love.

Don't like the shade range. However, this is a beautiful light medium coverage product that is agreeable with both cream and powder products on top. The longevity is phenomenal and it is indeed versatile. Have used for "no makeup" makeup and also glam. Looks fabulous as both. Although it is matte, the finish can be adjusted to a satin finish when using dewy products underneath.
Pancake from Los Angeles
I have oily skin and generally prefer drying products, however, this was too drying. I tried it with, and without, primer, moisturizer, sunscreen, and combinations of these with no luck. It does not blend well, does not provide even minimal coverage, and the light is still too dark for my light complexion. I had high hopes based on reviews, but no such luck. I will not continue to use this nor will I recommend it.
Samantha from LA
Love this! U can get light coverage but still covers redness really well. And I found a shade that matches me good. And it stays pretty matte all day without a strong mattifying primer underneath.
JJ from WA
Breaks me out Everytime.. And the color is too orange..
ItchyTiff from Santa Cruz
This worked well over several light layers of hydration plus sunscreen. My skin is a little oily, and more so if I don't use some moisturizers. Though, I am glad this is matte mostly to countereffect the glowiness of my sunscreen.
I use this mostly on my cheeks and t-zone to blend some melasma and balance out a little redness- kinda like a light concealer, and not over my full face. It feels really nice like I am not wearing any makeup and balances out the shine of my suncreen/
Natalie from Philadelphia, PA
I purchased this BB Cream based on the positive reviews and Covergirl becoming cruelty free. I have extremely oily skin and this BB Cream helps me stay shine free. So happy I gave this product a try and I highly recommend!
Sarah from Portland, OR
I really wanted to like this BB cream, and the reviews had me really hopeful, but it just didn't work for me. I got the lightest shade AND mixed it with the primer, but its still several shades too dark for me. It also feels really heavy and drying, but my skin isn't very oily so that might play a part in it.I just wish it was lighter, both in color and in feel.
Oilfriendly from Virginia
I have acne prone skin and was tired of wearing foundation everyday so I decided to go with trying a bb cream and this one caught my eye. I am literally in love with it! It makes my skin so nice and soft looking and lasts long then a foundation would on my skin (mind you I have oily skin). You don't even need to set it but I do just cause of my oily skin. The only thing I'd say about this negatively is the shade range. It definitely looks orange on my but I can make it work.
Ashleigh from Arkansas
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.
LB from Florida
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.
CaraShortStout from Salt Lake City
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.
Gemma from Pensacola, Fl
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.
Jlynn from California
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.
lipstick💄 queen from Utah
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
