Not for me
Sampled

I’m not sure if it’s because my skin is really dry or the product was too light but it looked absolutely terrible on. It highlighted every bump, pore and rough patch. It wasn’t moisturizing at all and looked extremely cakey. It gave me an overall gray skin tone and felt extremely waxy on my face, took a lot of scrubbing to get it off. Not a fan.

Patchy, weird

As soon as I put this on I had to wash it off - it was horrible! Did not spread easily and was super gunky feeling on my skin

I dont enjoy getting bb creams
Sampled

I keep saying that I never use these. they never match my skintone perfectly, and I am not a foundation wearer or anything of the sort. just some bronze and a bit of highlighter and contour.

chalky
Sampled

The sample color was just tad lighter my face but I tried it anyway. the color looked chalky and had to be blended a lot. After a couple hours it settled in my pores and make me look dotted!

Feels nice

Feels nice and has good coverage, but it was too yellow for my skin tone so I won’t be using it

Cakey, doesn't blend or absorb well
Sampled

Looked like a caked on foundation, didn't blend well at all. Looks awful.

No, thank you. Too heavy.
Sampled

I do not care for this product AT ALL! It’s so thick and heavy and seemed to be near impossible to rub in. I regularly use a BB cream, but have not used one like this. It’s more like a strong concealer. I ended up having to wash it off rather than even attempt to finish my makeup routine. I do not recommend.

Ghastly CC
Sampled

Hands down the worst product I’ve ever tried in my life. The shade was off and the coverage was a joke, I imagine it’s what one would expect from dollar tree makeup even tho I’ve never tried makeup from there. This literally made me look like I was ill.

Orange
Sampled

This was the only sample in an otherwise disappointing sample box that I was excited to try. I live other ipkn products—their green correction cream is a lifesaver in the summer when my hyperpigmentation is on full blast—but this was disappointingly orange and didn’t match my skin tone at all. I might try to use it in the summer when my skin is a bit more tan, but this makes me look orange like Trump—not a look I’m going for.

Wrong color
Sampled

I received a color that was not even close to my skin tone in my Birchbox (fail) but in addition to being way off and unwearable, it also feels super drying on the back of my hand. Disappointed.
