Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review So undetectable, a MAN can wear it...and I do.
I've bought (and returned) almost every BB cream out there looking for one that I as a man can get away with wearing. This one is off the charts. It's especially difficult for me being a fair skinned redhead with pink tones to my skin. "Nude" is the shade I used, and this does take away the pink for the most part which I'm okay with but it really matches my pale whiteness of my neck and body. It seems to work best on bare skin, or skin that has been prepped only with a serum. If you have a thick moisturizer on, this product tends to not want to spread out and won't adhere. It has a base that works like a primer, so it won't just come off. Best way for a MAN to use this product is to use it pretty much just in the center area of the face and forehead, and neck, leaving the areas one would normally "contour" alone. If you put it EVERYWHERE you'll look like a ghost or you'll have to put color back onto your face and then you'll look "made up". It's not necessary if you only put this product where you need it. I use a Coastal Scents Bionic Flat Top Buffer to apply it, using light quick circular strokes then I clean off the brush and stipple the product into my skin to be sure that it works in and looks less made up, but still gives me the CC effects. I then blend again in my cheek contour area with a clean buffer to bring back some of my natural color there,and what little tiny bit the brush picks back up from doing that, I lightly just go over my eeyelids to even them out, being careful not to do too much around or near the eyes or you look freaky. If they made a shade that had juuust the slightest pink tone to it, I'd be happier, but this is a wonderful product. Maybe I might pick up the "natural" shade and try mixing them or using it as a contour. Anything a man can wear and not look made up gets an A+ from me...and my face.

There needs to be a shade for black people, I can't wear peach colored bb cream. Add some brown shades please!

This is perfect for me! I was looking for an affordable product (tinted moisturizer or bb cream) with light coverage to even my complexion for a practically no-makeup look. I don't wear foundation or anything similar, just moisturizer.
My skin is fair and slightly dry with mild redness. This offers sheer coverage but truly color corrects my redness and leaves a really glowy appearance.
"Brightens, smooths, moisturizes" is what it says on the packaging - it truly does everything it promises! Also very affordable compared to higher end face products.
Love It ❤️
M from NJ
I use this product every single day and it is so amazing. This is for the people like me that love light coverage. I would totally recommend this to the people that want a bb cream that is light but gives some kind of coverage.
I'll keep buying it
Amy from Saint Louis, MO
As my skin has gotten clearer, I've been looking for lighter coverage makeup to use. This has enough coverage to even me out but still be able to breath a bit. I finish it off with some powder because I prefer a matte look. I just wish the product didn't come out so quickly. I end up with extra every time. Great price though!
Love the perfect color and coverage for me
Diane from Meridian, Idaho
Has great coverage
Light coverage for small blemishes
faith :/// from texas
The product is amazing for anyone that needs a refreshing dewy no-makeup look. I highly recommend this bb cream for beginners. PLEASE NOTE: the bottle is in a plastic container that can easily spill the cream everywhere when there's too much pressure squishing it. Store in a place with not much movement!!
Cal from Detroit
This is a hidden gem both in the NYX line and in the BB Cream market. It provides lightweight, medium coverage and doesn't get too terribly greasy on my oily skin throughout the day.
Melis from Mentor
Probably my least favorite NYX product ever. I thought I liked it before branching out. only then did I realize this product is no good. It's greasy, doesn't blend well, has little coverage, and once I stopped using it a lot of the acne I was using it to cover cleared up. Amazing how that worked. I'm pretty fair skinned but looking back on pictures I realize it was definitely not a match. I know NYX can do better.
Please make more shades!
Grace from Portland, OR
Love this BB cream. It's affordable and is the perfect amount of light coverage. The shade range is absurdly small, though. Makes it hard to recommend to others.
if you're fair or acne prone, skip it
lillianGR from WA
Greasy, doesn't blend well so there's no coverage by the time you finish, no colors for fair or dark skinned people, causes painful acne. I like many nyx products but this is basically a sham, like it's made just so nyx can claim they have a bb cream but not made for any actual humans to use, unless they have a light medium complexion&an abnormally strong skin barrier.
If you ARE fair with acne/acne prone/adult acne like myself, go get Pacifica's Alight BB cream in shade 11. It's basically the opposite of everything I just said about this product.
My favorite BB cream, but the shades are not it...
Emily from North Attleboro, MA, USA
I couldn't love this bb cream more. The shade range is ABYSMAL and almost makes me not want to buy it. However; if you can look past that, the product itself does exactly what's expected. It has a bit more coverage than some other bb creams i've tried, and my color (shade 2) is perfect for my skin.
Better than Tinted Moisturizer
Alex from Irvine, California
I really love this product but that's just because I have light enough skin to wear it. I'm usually light-medium with neutral to warm undertones and I fit the darkest shade....... that's kind of horrible. However, it really works for me personally so I have to give it a good review because its as lightweight as a tinted moisturizer but with more coverage and you can't beat the price. It blends really well with the skin. I'm going to purchase a lighter shade for the winter.
Color and coverage without being heavy.
Mimi from Parker, CO
I would purchase this item again
Tiffany from Ohio
I barely wear makeup, but this product feels very soft
Kaci from USA
First off, I loved the way that this product looked and felt on the skin. It evened out my skin tone and felt like I was wearing nothing. My skin is VERY sensitive and acne prone so I am not surprised that I broke out form this. I will say this is one of the worst breakouts that I have had in a while. Under the skin pimples all over my face but that doesn't mean this product won't work for you.
MT from Napa, CA
Do not put this on your face unless you want cystic breakouts
Fave BB cream!
PNW girl from Mount Vernon, WA
This is my favorite Bb cream. I've been using it for years. I don't like cakey makeup and this definitely gives me a good coverage without feeling greasy or cakey. I use a concealer under my eyes and the NYX stay matte powder foundation over it. I have combination skin and don't have issues with it staying all day long.
Bilbo the Defiler from NJ
I buy this bottle after bottle. It is a very sheer BB cream that does a great job of hiding the slightest imperfections. It's my go-to facial makeup product. As someone with slightly yellow undertones, the color of the light shade fits me perfectly. Not sure how it would look on others, but it's very subtle!
Nice BB Cream
Pbiwer64 from Kissimmee
This goes on smoothly and looks natural. I would buy again.
I don't like it ((it's a bad color

Beauty Guru0519 from West Virginia
This BB Cream is really nice! It covers very well! It blends flawlessly! I use the shade Nude and it works great for my skin tone! It doesn't toook cakey or anything and lasts all day!
No No Nooo! No
Kim from California
I made a mistake by not looking at the ingredients... I'm still shaking my head at that.
Also, not light enough for pale/fair skin
I would buy this product again

I like to use BB cream because it is sheer and not heavy.
bb cream from usa
although i love this bb cream, it definitely needs a wider shade range. my perfect shade is nude, but what about people with dark skin? other than the shade range, it is my fav bb cream ever. i like that it covers all zits and blackheads (i'm a teen so what do you expect from teen skin lol) and it covers redness, but leaves my cute freckles! i LOVE how light this is, although it takes a while to blend, so i would recommend using a beauty blender that's damp and don't use a brush!
My Holy Grail product, but product needs a much wider range
Summer from Atlanta, GA
I love, love, LOVE this product. I have weird combo skin, and almost every foundation I've ever tried have looked awful on me. My skin hates foundation and foundation hates my skin (even thought I have clear skin most of the time and no texture issues). But this product is really the only thing that works with my skin. It's light but slightly buildable. It gives me the coverage I need, I don't feel like I have anything on my face, and it's very natural "your skin but better." It doesn't sink into fine lines or settle weird and survives in Atlanta humidity.
I don't think this would be a good product for people who need more coverage or want to cover pimples, hyperpigmentation, things like that. There's just not enough coverage. It does help cover mild redness in my cheeks and shadows under my eyes (at least partially), but it won't cover anything major.
The reason why I didn't give this five stars is because the shade range is abysmal. This is such a good product, and more people deserve to use it! As a white person who's naturally pale but tans easily, the three shades can basically get me through the year, from super-pale in the winter to more tan in the summer. But because they're quite sheer, I don't think even the darkest shade wouldn't work on actually tan or medium skin tones (at least I wouldn't think so, maybe I'm wrong). There's no chance any would work on someone with dark skin. So basically this is an amazing product, but it seems like it's really only going to work for white people. It's 2020 NYX! Do better.
Tara from Oklahoma
I don't hate this stuff but I don't love it. I chose the nude color because my skin is fairly fair. I think I could've gone a little darker, but it's also summertime so maybe it would work alright in the winter. I don't like that it's so thick. It's a little difficult to put on with a brush, I feel like I'm pulling my skin a little bit. My husband likes that it's not so dark because it leaves more of a natural skin look. But if you were looking for it to cover anything like freckles or imperfections it's not going to.. I use a Mary kay mineral powder foundation on top of it which helps with the color... it does not have SPF in it if you were looking for that. Which I knew when I bought it. I am not sure I will purchase this again..
