Most Helpful Positive Review DON'T SLEEP ON THIS ONE
I have only been doing makeup about 9 months so I'm pretty new to the game. Until I used this product I swore by full coverage foundations and never thought I would reach for something "sheer". However around a month ago I started working on 'everyday'/'natural' looks and found I needed something less heavy-duty than foundation. That's when I purchased this BB cream in shade 120 Medium. I could not believe the results. Even though this cream is "sheer coverage" it evens out my skin tone so well it honestly looks like I have medium coverage on. The best part its it holds up very very well even in the Miami summer climate. I found that my foundations would break up a lot from the humidity but this BB cream stays in tact!!! The only niggle is for me is that the finish is dewy, and I prefer matte. Therefore this may not be ideal for oily skin types (mine is dry).
I now mix shades 110 and 120 bc 120 was a little dark for me. I am attaching two pictures with me wearing the 110/120 mix, one natural look and one more glam.
Most Helpful Critical Review only use if you have perfect skin
I was so excited to try this new 'bb cream' everyone has been raving about, to find out its not what I thought it was going to be. I have naturally oily skin with many imperfections and I thought this product would fix my imperfections, when all it really did was nothing. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone who has recent acne and acne scars cause it wont cover up anything. It did even out a little bit of redness I have but that was about it. I would only recommend this product to people who already have nice skin that are just looking to even a little bit out. Otherwise, dont even bother.

I am looking at my new Nars and Charlotte Tilbury and Tarte foundations, all set aside because they are just not as good as the Maybelline BB cream. I try everything that comes out, but this is the one I go back to every single time. It looks so natural and makes my pores look flawless (although I do use the Benefit poreFessional OVER the top) Will always be my #1 choice for perfect skin.
Easy to use
Turbo from MI
This is easy for workdays, smooths out my skin. Doesn't work well with silicone primers.
The best BB cream!
jjmakeup from San Diego, CA
This product is amazing (truly my holy grail), if you're actually looking for a bb cream. This is closer to a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. It will even out your skin tone, smooths over any skin texture, but it's still going to look like skin. That's what I love about it -- it's my skin, but better! I think some of the negative reviews on here were expecting a different product. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want a full coverage look.
Glides over skin like nothing else!

You will LOVE this if you want:
- sheer coverage
- smoothing effect over pores
- glowy skin
If you want full coverage, or foundation that dries down completely, this is not for you!
Foundation has always been tricky for me. Traditional foundations always seem to exaggerate what I want to cover. But this BB Cream is perfect for me, and works better in terms of diminishing the appearance of pores than higher end tinted moisturizers I have tried! I started using it in my early 20s, and it continues to work great for me in my early 30s. It doesn't settle into fine lines at all, and I'm so happy I can continue to use this product. The only downside is I wish there was a better shade range. Because it's sheer, I can make it work.
Izzie from Arizona
I know it's a sheer product so should work for many skin tones, but I still think they need to expand their shade range. I usually wear the lightest shade in product but the lightest shade in this range is unusually warm and almost yellow. Pretty disappointed as I used to love this product and don't remember it being such a bad match.
A keeper for me.
Gabby from Northern CA
I am happy with this BB cream. It leaves a soft, subtle color, smooths easily and looks natural.
Alexandria from Boynton beach, Florida
Used this 2x. I just wanted a moisturizer with a tint and spf. What I got was 5 humongous pimples!! My daughter also use at the same time I did and also broke out. I was so embarrassed to even go out in public.
Mimi from Colorado
Daily light coverage.
Go to BB cream

I like this for every day when I want to go simple but still looks put together
i from indiana
makes my skin look so smooth and has sunscreen in it
It's Just Okay.
Marissa from pittsburgh
absolutely no coverage (to be expected but I was hoping for a little?) evens out your skin tone though so it's good for a "no makeup" makeup day but be warned it rubs off SUPER EASY. if you even dribble water out of your mouth you have a streak.
Mak from Albuquerque, NM
I love this BB cream !! It is very affordable and you can build on as much as needed for full coverage, it's so milky and leaves a beautiful glowy tint to your face
The best products ever
Andrea from Summit nj
One of my go-to's
Nikki from Classified
This is one of my go-to's. I've always loved a sheer coverage look because I wanted my freckles to still show. This does just that. It helps give just enough coverage to eliminate redness and give a pop of color to my skin. It doesn't give you a cakey look and it looks natural on the skin. This with a little highlighter and blush looks amazing!
Just enough to even out skin tones. Not a makeup wearer.
Sandy from NC
Use this product to even out skin tones. Not a makeup wearer, so this is just enough for me.
Jenna from Florida
Just what I needed!
Monika from Las Vegas, NV
Was looking for a mineral BB cream with SPF I could wear to work everyday so I wouldn't have to use & waste my expensive SPF foundations, and this is absolutely perfect!! Extremely natural looking and blends in seamlessly to the skin. I just use my fingers and it takes less than a minute to put on.
I bought the shade light/medium for when I'm pale during the winter, medium for when I'm naturally tan during the summer, and medium deep for when I use self tanner. 10/10!!!
I forgot how much I loved this product
Alyssa from Houston
I will never get foundation again. This is amazing in my skin, foundation never looks good on my skin no matter which foundation I buy. This makes my skin looks glowy and smooth and healthy& foundation always makes me look very bland& is too harsh. I have blemished skin so it's great that this bb cream is very buildable when I need to hide my marks and dark spots.
W from La
Love the coverage!!
Just didnt suit me like before

Just didnt suit me like before
Gives a greasy appearance
Lisa from New York
For light/medium the color does blend well, although the product makes your face look very wet and greasy and does not last very long. Did not like enough to buy again.
Absolutely love it
HisSugar from Asheboro, Nc
Use every mornin as sun protection! Has a very light coverage. Yet still covers acne scaring & blemishes. Great if you use acne medication because you need the sunscreen!
Gave it another try!
Yoeli from GA
Tried this in my high school years and hated it. Would make my skin really oily and didn't last the whole school day. I'm now 30 and I love it. Idk if they changed the formula or just my skin becoming more mature, but WOW!!! Love everything about it.
Threw it away after a few uses
Meg from Oregon
Made me break out and transfers everywhere. Makes my eyelids crease. Not a fan. Covergirl bb cream for the win.
GD from NC
great for summer for no make up but still some coverage look.
