    If you take this product for what it is, leaving unrealistic expectations behind, I think you will be pleased.

    First, for the people saying they are disappointed in the coverage - did you not read the packaging? It says SHEER TINT, which is an accurate description of the cream's coverage. Being a person that enjoys a natural yet pulled together make-up look, I quite enjoy the coloring and coverage provided; skin discoloration will fade upon application and you will have a luminous glow (not oily).

    Second, I have noticed a difference in the texture of my skin since using this product. No breakouts, which I often ran into with other facial creams, and while I'm not sure if this is possible after only a couple of weeks, my pores are smaller and face has a more even coloring to it (red areas around my nose are gone!).

    Thank you, Maybelline, for providing so much more than I was expecting in a make-up product!

    Faithfully yours,
    xoxo

    I have combination skin...oily T zone and normal to drier cheek area. So I bought this because I heard good things. However, after using it a few times, I feel it's not the BB cream for me. First off, it comes on very smooth with light to medium coverage but by the end of the day, I'm one greasy mess, mind you I wasn't exercising or doing much. I won't chuck it though, but I won't apply it to my t-zone anymore either. This BB cream is better suited for someone with dry to normal skin.

        I have combination skin. I'm pretty oily on my "T" zone. I tried this stuff and it just made my face look like an oil slick. May be better for people with dry skin.

          For travel I like to use budget brands. I don't feel as though I sacrifice my look or hurt my skin using this product in place of regular use items. I have been very satisfied with the light natural coverage. I appreciate the idea of a BB cream to save time and layers of product on my face.

                  I've tried about four BB creams within this price category and Maybelline makes the best one by far compared to its competition.

                  1) There are more color choices to select from. I struggle to understand why its competitors only make Light and Medium shades.

                  2) The coverage is more matte than its competitors, which for someone with acne-prone, oily, or combination skin is good. The other ones might feel a bit too heavy or greasy.

                  3) After daily use, I noticed my skin improving, both in reduced acne breakouts and even skin tone.

                  4) It has a higher SPF than its competitors which is better for those with lighter skin or simply want a stronger SPF.

                  5) This could be due to its greater selection of colors but I find it blends better than its competitors, which make my skin look a shade darker despite the fact that it's labeled "Light."

                    I LOVE this product!! So light-weight but still fades my skin discolorations well. I have had problems with acne my whole life and this product DOES NOT break my skin out...I was SHOCKED. I had forgotten to bring my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer when we went on vacation, so I ran to the nearby drugstore and picked this up. Now I won't use anything else!! Also, I have melasma on my forehead and a little on the sides of my face and this fades that when I put it on as well...all the while making my skin feel fantastic. So soft!

                      I've tried other BB creams and accounting for Maybelline's price, I'd say this is a pretty comparable product. There are a few more expensive brands that I've found to be way too gritty in texture and when applied, is actually a bit drying on the skin. This one has decent texture, but if you have dry skin, you are better off going with a more hydrating brand. For those with oily or combination skin though, I think the texture is perfect. I also found the shade to be pretty good. It wasn't an exact match, but it blended so well, topped off with a light loose powder, that it was almost a better match than a few of my past foundation shades. It's a great option for on-the-good make-up application since it can be used alone. And I also found that my skin reacted to it rather nicely. I found less acne breakouts, which is an issue for me.

                      I either mix a pea size amount of BB cream with my Neutrogena Dr sunblock Or I use the BB cream over the sunblock.. I let it set 5-10 minutes before applying mineral makeup or blush. Somedays I omit the mineral makeup andjust use the BB cream as a light foundation.
                      I have only used the BB cream a few weeks so no noticeable change in skin.. But I do get compliments on my skin since using this product. age 64.. I do finger smooth the BB cream or mineral makeup where I have slight wrinkles.
                      This BB cream also works with my rosacea.

                      There are definitely better bb creams out there! This product claims to have eight benefits, but most bb creams offer the same things, i.e. uv protection, lotion, and coverage (which is what would really help to 'blur imperfections', 'even skin-tone', 'enhance', and 'brighten.') For the price of the product, you're much better off buying skinfood or missha off of [@]. Those brands offer much more buildable coverage though they do tend to come in fewer shades. When I use this product, I see virtually no change in my skin's appearance. The smell isn't too great either.
