Most Helpful Positive Review Give it a chance!
When I first used this, I wasn't impressed at all, to be honest. It dried down to a matte/semi-matte finish and it left my combination skin feeling dry & tight; it didn't feel lightweight at all. Despite this, I pushed forward & kept using it.
Come to find out, my skin was getting better with extended use! The problems I was having with it had NOTHING to do with the product, but with my actual skin. My skin was dehydrated (not unmoisturized) & overproduced oil in my tzone. Extended use of this product helped regulate that (along with a proper skincare routine). I looked deeper and found the ingredient list rich with hydrating ingredients like snail mucin & a blend of wonderful oils with brightening and soothing properties, compounds that help retain moisture & keep my skin hydrated like niacinamide, and even things to help with my hyperpigmentation issues like hyaluronic acid! I was shocked at how beautiful the formulation of this product is.
We're supposed to be using sunscreen EVERYDAY, no matter how short you're exposed to the sun - even if it's just going to the grocery store! We're also supposed to reapply sunscreen every two hours (depending on our sun exposure), but doing so over makeup can be challenging. This product is perfect for just that! It uses the beautiful ingredients Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide to be a great no-white-cast physical sunscreen!
The product advertises itself as a "full coverage cream" which I found is slightly misleading. If you think you'll get full coverage with, say, just one or two pumps, you're in for a surprise. That being said, this product layers beautifully! You can definitely build up to that full coverage you might be looking for, but will still look very natural.
TLDR: Give this product a chance - not just for a couple applications, but use it regularly so you can really see the wonderful affect it can have on your skin. Definitely buildable coverage, layers beautifully, and is a wonderful sunscreen! Two thumbs up!
Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted to like this...
After watching rave reviews of this CC cream from some of my favorite YouTubers, I had some extremely high expectations for this product that were sadly not met. I have 40 year old, normal/slight combination skin with occasional dry patches. This cream would cling to my dry patches, oxidize leaving me with an orange hue after a few hours, and separate on top of my slightly oily T-zone. I tried applying this product with and without primer, with a foundation brush, with a beauty blender, with just with my fingers and then I gave up. I passed it on to my 65 year old mother who turned right around and gave it back to me saying that it overly emphasized her wrinkles by settling in them over time, and that it made the rest of her face look like an oil slick. -- My biggest regret is that I used up so much of this cream trying to make it work that I cannot in good conscience return it for a refund.

Long lasting and great coverage. I love the last SPF and how moisturizing it feels.
stace from michigan
sorry guys, this cc cream is full coverage but for my dry skin it still clinged to my dry patches.
I love how it makes my skin look
Penny from San Jose
I am 49 years old and I love how this CC cream makes my skin look.
I've use this CC cream in the past. Like some other reviews I read it it was tacky, settled in my creases and oxidized leaving me with looking orange. I think now that I may have had the wrong color and I was using too much. A little goes a long way.
After Urban Decay cancelled the one and done perfecting cream I decided to give It a try. I already had a tube in med tan, which is now too light for me. I decided to get a darker color to mix together to get the right the tone for me. so I ordered It in Rich. Turns out Rich is the perfect color for my skin tone now.
I have age spots on my cheeks and this covered it up nicely. I still had to use a layer of concealer to cover up the rest of the age spots. But I preferred a CC cream to foundation.
Pale Snow White Girls Beware
Cpan18 from Philadelphia, PA
I was so excited to get this product after hearing all the amazing reviews... Due to Covid, I ordered online based on the Swatches Ulta's App provides. Fair-Light (the 2nd lightest color) looked to be the best match for my porcelain skin, based the swatch. When I received the product, I tested a small amount on my jawline. I immediately regretted this purchase. I went from Snow White to an Oompa Loompa right away. The product was thick, streaky (even after I used a damp beauty blender to apply), uneven coverage, patchy, and above all; orange. This is possibly the worst product I've purchased in a long time. For the price; I expected pure gold and a treasure. Instead I found fools gold. Ulta- please update your swatches to reflect the true colors of this product. I'm afraid even if I went with the lightest option for this product, it still would be orange & too dark for my porcelain skin tone. Disappointing is the most kind word I have for this product. Returned this purchase the very next day.
I would buy again and again!!
Lisa from Traverse City, MI
The tube is big and will last a long time which makes it a great buy for the price!
Covers so well
Nikki from Roseville
It is perfectly creamy, a lot of times I feel like I have to have a moisturizer on first, you only need a little bit and it covers beautifully!!!! I feel so pretty
B3H3 from Mt Pleasant, MI
I wanted to try a new foundation because the ones I was using before just weren't working anymore. I had watched numerous videos on the CC cream and I am so happy I tried it! My new favorite product!
Absolutely PERFECT !
Va.Belle from Bedford VIRGINIA
This is the BEST CC CREAM EVER. I LOVE IT COSMETICS. I AM NEVER DISAPPOINTED IN ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS ! THIS CC CREAM IS PERFECT FOR MATURE SKIN, IT GIVES MY SKIN SUCH A LOVELY GLOW. And I know I'm actually doing something good for my "VINTAGE SKIN "🤗. THANKS FOR SUCH AN AMAZING PRODUCT. 💋💋💋💋💋💋💋
Kim from California
I am very please with the coverage of this product. My only issue is that the shade range for the anti aging formula is small. I ordered light/medium & the product is too orange. It goes on orange but once I blend it a bit, I don't notice it as much. I've been told it just looks like I have a fake tan. I will repurchase, but I will get another color.
Ali from New Hartford, NY
After turning 70, I wanted to reevaluate my makeup routine. I learned about this product through Erin Busbee's YouTube channel. I have dry skin which tends to get red and irritated easily. This product works as my daytime moisturizer, concealer, flawless foundation and sunscreen . I am delighted that it keeps my face looking younger and fresh all day long without a touch up. The customer service representative at Ulta matched me up with the perfect shade which I would not have done on my own. So this is now my absolute go to foundation. I will say that the product goes a long way, so I start out with a half of a pump and proceed from there. I don't look or feel my age and this product helps a lot.
Rhonda from Kennells Mill, Pa
This foundation is amazing! I have used several different kind over the years and this is by far the best. The coverage last all day. I have recommended it to friends and family.
I will be purchasing this CC cream again.
Joey from NC
This product is wonderful. It is very lite and gives complete coverage & makes you feel like you are not wearing makeup.
Mslola89 from Texas
It doesn't blend well, it settles into creases, it slides off after a couple of hours and it looks terrible, had to return it.
GREAT MAKE UP/SKINCARE
BETSY from Alabama
NOT A HEAVY MAKE UP BUT GREAT COVERAGE PLUS LIKE IT BEING AN ALL IN ONE
not worth the hype
Makeup nyc from new york
After seeing many many many positive reviews I decided to try this product out. I ordered two to compare shades and my first issue is it's 2020, why is your darkest shade not dark enough for the average dark women, two the undertones are just ashy and made me look like the walking dead. the product separates like crazy and looks so unbelievably cakey on the skin it's terrible. I never leave reviews on here but thought this had to be done, not sure what other product people are using that makes them love this so much but it's not worth it
Not bad from Georgia
I liked it.
Not it's all hyped up to be
Val from Wylie Tx
Felt very heavy on my face for it to be a CC cream.
A ridiculous shade of orange
Julie from Wisconsin
I ordered this in fair light, and it went on orange. Felt slimy as it went on. Never again, save your money.
Hay from Bay Area, Ca
Beautiful foundation. Lasts all day. Blends well with skin. Works well with sponge or brush. Very happy with this purchase.
Orange. Orange. Orange.
Jules from WI
I ordered this in fair light. This went on ORANGE. These shades do not work for fair skinned people. I would give it zero stars if I could.
Me from Nutley, NJ
I have used this product in the past and thought it was ok. The rankings and reviews are so good I thought I would try it again. Truly sorry that I did.
Just what I was looking for
Nancy from Ohio
Ive always used bare minerals power and my aging skin needed just a little more coverage. I love the feel, the color, the fact that it doesn't stick in my wrinkles, and I look natural- not that I just came from the makeup counter in the department store.
Shade range is way too dark
Jess from Michigan
I normally wear a light medium in foundations and even the lightest one they offer is still too dark for my skin. I'm really disappointed because I love the coverage and the weight of this cream, but I think they need to revamp their shade range. There's no way a fair light should be so dark.
I would definitely buy it again
Lanuna from CA
I love how it blends with my skin tone. I bought it in light. It is fragrance free and is also very lightweight. It feels like you are not wearing anything and it has SPF 50 which is a huge plus. I'm totally in love with this product. I wish it was a little cheaper but it is definitely worth buying.
Love this product!
Kaylie S. from Texas
First of all the instructions say one to two pumps and they mean it! One pump and my face was covered! My skin just looked so good with this I was shocked and pleased. I do wish the shade range was bigger and more accurate. I got the shade light and if it wasn't for my small summer tan it would be too dark and that's just crazy for the shade light!
