I picked this up because I was tired of trying to find the "perfect foundation" to make my skin flawless when flawless is not real. The product self adjusts to your skin color from the heat of your hands. I found the best way to apply this is with my hands using a sweeping motion. I find this is the best way to get the product everywhere and for the color to adjust the best. It applies smoothly and evenly. The finish is a natural matte and seems to stay that way for me for 8 hour at least. You can actually layer this to get a bit more coverage. This product evens out my skin tone and covers minor imperfections. I can go over problem areas with a couple coats, like my dark circles and get decent coverage. It's not going to mask things it just blurs them and looks like your skin but better.
The cons are it lacks sunscreen but I apply a moisturizer with sunscreen in it prior to putting this on so it really doesn't bother me. I would also strongly suggest staying away from the Light Shade. I picked up that one because they were out of the Fair shade and it turned straight up oompalumpa orange on me. If you are light, opt for the Fair shade it will adjust to you and you can always put some bronzer on if it's too light.
I would suggest this product if you like your skin but want it to look better.
I'm 41 and been having a tough time with foundations enhancing fine like nes and wrinkles. I tried this product from reading good reviews. I picked up the lightest share and was surprised it came out a greyish white color and once you rub it together it turns pumpkin orAnge and appears like a orangey self tanner that's how bad this product was. I washed it off my face immediately and will be returning it.

It wasn't good at all. Didn't do anything to my skin. Felt heavy and no luck for this bb cream

I am so disappointed With how awful this looks on my skin! It was almost instantanly orange- like I was spreading orange paint on my face. I'd like to point out that I am an avid sunless tanner user in the Darkest option by Fake Bake, so I am not against being a lil bit orange lol and I know when I used my friends tube of the Fair shade about a year ago, I loved the way my skin looked. I was so excited when my Ulta finally had this in store to buy, I purchased Light (I was going to get medium but thank god I didn't bc I'm assuming that would be even worse) but I plan on going back tomorrow and exchanging for aborted brand- I've came across multiple reviews mentioning that the formula changed within last year so even tho I liked fair, it seems to be oxidizing a lot on ppl too. I Used to recommend this to my friends but not anymore

first I bought light because thats usually what I am and it was orange. then I bought fair and it was the same color....orange
Debs3 from Virginia
Oxidizes terribly! The shade "light" which should have been a decent match just turns horribly orange on my skin. Think 80's self tanner. I truly don't like this at all and I threw it away. Just gross
Alison from Pennsylvania
Like everyone else said the light shade was too dark and made me orange. I really hoped it would be good but was sadly disappointed

I use daily uses, don't need anything else for daily natural look

I have been using this for at least the last 3 years and my stockpile finally ran low and I ordered a new tube only to discover the formula has changed. It oxidizes MUCH more orange than it used to and makes me look like one of the old school Oompa Loompas. Be warned! The new formula is much runnier than the old formula and unfortunately I can no longer use this product since I don't want to look orange. For reference I ordered the lightest/fairest shade since I'm ginger and the difference between the old formula and new one is SUPER noticeable. I wish I could post pictures to show the side by side of old and new. I'm writing this review just so others know, I wish I did before I reordered it.

I purchased this a couple of months ago and for some reason forgot about it, I was cleaning up and trying to decide if it goes with foundations or primer so I left it out so I could figure it out... Next day I went and I road trip and decided to use this, When first applying it I thought "ok so this is probably a primer" but then it started adjusting to my skin and I thought wow...so I had to stop and read the directions and what it claims to do. And it did everything it said its supposed to do. This was so easy to use, (I find it really satisfying to watch it transform on my face lol)
So anyway I LOVE it, and really only came on here to see if I can purchase a few more bc this is perfect for the summer!!!

Fair shade is too dark and orangey.
KC from LA
Even the lightest shade was orange!
Sb from Glendale AZ
I'm pretty pale and the fair was way too orange for me. I got another BB cream and loved it. It matches my skin perfectly. This fair is still too dark and too orange
Joycee from San Jose, CA
This is a lovely lightweight replacement for foundation. Since I've gotten older (57) heavier foundations get into my fine lines so I in looking for a lighter replacement found this and love it. I'm fair skinned and use Light. I'm surprised by some of the reviews saying it turned their skin orange - that hasn't happend to me at all. On me it doesn't even have an orange cast and its very light and washes off easily. It made me wonder if they weren't talking about a different product.
Pale Girl from MI
Tried this product for the first time today. The product applies looking white and feeling gritty, but even coverage is easily achieved and color changes quickly. The coverage was light enough to see some of the pale freckles across my nose - a little bit heavier than I was hoping for, but if that was the only issue, I'd be quite happy with it.
Unfortunately, "Fair" was too dark and orange-looking on my skin. >.< It's really not a product for pale people. Might work on medium or tan skin. I'd advise pale people not bother at all with this and others buy a shade lighter than you normally do.
My normal foundation is "Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless in 102 Fair Porcelain." This is a bit lighter than I'd like, but the next shade darker is too dark and is further from my skin tone. I've been blending it into my "Simple - Protecting Light Moisturizer w. SPF 15" to create my own BB cream at home and the effect is much nicer. I will probably stick to that!
Arin from Indiana
I got the lightest shade and it was ORANGE!! It would not blend out so I immediately took it off and my skin was stained orange for a whole day!! Awful!
Stacey from IA
Like the others it turned me orange as well when applied with fingers. I used a sponge and got a different result. Either way not a fan. Threw the full tube in the garbage.
Nicole P from Maine
I bought this shade in light and it went on my skin VERY orange. It literally looked like Cheeto dust on my face and not even a little blending could fix it.
Laney from North Dakota
I bought shade light and it was orange! Not even too dark just straight up orange! No amount of blending or other products help.

It's more gimmicky than good

I look as orange as an oompa loompa and I used Fair.
Kio from United States
I bought shade fair awhile ago in the store and based on the packaging I had thought it would be pretty light. I have extremely fair slightly rose toned skin, to the point of basically being white especially in sunlight. This was so unbelievably not only dark on my but also orange I used it two or three times trying literally everything and it just didn't ever work it was way to dark. For anyone else out there with almost paper white skin even the lightest shade is to dark. I also noticed with the pearls of pigment over it being a one even tone product, it was super patchy. I don't know if I noticed it more because I'm just that fair or if the product shows patchy on other people as well.
sonya from MN
the skin tone I bought was fair and it's very close to my skin tone. it's light weight and it gives me a lot of product from the small amount of dots I put on your face.
Jennie from Manchester CT
Hydrates and moisturizes very well. Great lightweight cream!
Aims from Worcester, MA
I wanted to give this a shot to see if it would help with evening out my skin tone. Holy moly, orange city! After reading about the product, I've learned you can 'make it work' by using a sponge or trying different tricks to apply the product. For a BB cream, that's just too much effort. Switching back to my NYX BB cream.
Holly from Lubbock, TX
Ughh not exactly what I wanted. I didn't know it would be white! I picked the medium shade so that I could have a darker color for summer but of course this just blended into my super white self ☹️ It will be good during winter but just not what I wanted at all.
