Unfortunately most people reviewed the size of their sample instead of the actual product. Le sigh.
I bought a full size in "light" and I love it. I don't care for thick, full coverage creams and so many "BB"esque creams are far too "dewy" for my combination/oily skin. This is exactly the product I was searching for. It says to put product onto moisturized skin so I used Philosophy's Clear Days Ahead BHA with moisturizer first.
Big Easy blended smoothly and evenly. I love that it sets to a super soft powdery finish. All that and SPF 35 as well. This is my new favorite and will definitely keep purchasing. If it hadn't been for that tiny yet full of potential sample from Birchbox I wouldn't have found this. Thanks Birchbox.
Pros: Stays matte all day, has SPF, blends easily
Cons: Little to no coverage, not very moisturizing, accentuates dry patches of skin
The color seemed a little light at first, but eventually darkened to the correct shade with wear. It has the consistency of a thick BB cream, but didn't do much to cover light freckles.
I usually do not like liquid foundation. This product surprised me because I ended up really enjoying it. It covered and smooth and felt like powder! Great product!
unsure even after sampling
I'm kind of neutral on this product. Sample was not enough to use recommended amount. In my opinion, it doesn't really cover redness on my cheeks
The absolute best! This is one of my very favorite makeup products. It goes on super light and never gives my very sensitive and moody skin any problems like breakouts or clogged pores, etc. This makes your skin look flawless.
My favorite thing about it is that you can do so many different things. I will apply it with my hands as a BB Cream for a quick cover-up and to even out my skin tone before running out, or put it underneath a more heavy foundation as a base. You can also you can layer it or more coverage.
My personal favorite for a day where I need all day make-up that isn't going to budge, like a wedding or big event at work, is to use use my favorite regular full coverage foundation than put this over it to set, as it dries as a powder.
This is also great to put over a primer or BB that has some shimmer to it, as once again that powder finish will let that glow shine through, but keep you from looking sparkly.
I will say that even the fair shade has a bit of a yellow base to it (i'm more pink in tone) and so you have to make sure you're really blending to not get an ombre face to neck look.
The other best thing about this is that a tube lasts FOREVER. I am re-ordering today (late Nov 2015) and still have a small amount left, but I bought my last tube in June 2014.
