Overall 7/10

Not my favorite product. I’ve tried using this in a couple of different ways but I just don’t think it is meant to be. I think this product may work well for other skin types but on me it was a horrible greasy mess.

Pigmentation 8/10

Lightly pigmented. Nothing super heavy or cover all imperfections but really what do you expect in a BB cream. It evened me out without making me look sallow and sick.

Texture 3/10

Greasy, and smells like sunscreen very strongly. I had high hopes for this product because I have liked Revlon foundations in the past but this was seriously horrible. I hate the smell of sunscreen and this smells of it so heavily that I was catching whiffs of it all day long.  Just Bleh.

On my skin it was greasy but even. I don’t have particularly greasy skin in general (I tend towards the dry end of things) but this just made me look like I was about to break out all over. Or had been sweating for hours.

Longevity 7/10

Decent. Despite the oiliness the coverage was good and lasted all day. I set it with a
mattifying powder from elf
and it did help with the greasy factor and probably also with the longevity. I don’t know how well this product would hold up in the heat. It feels like there would be some major melting.

Application 8/10

I applied this with my CLEAN fingers. I cannot stress enough how important the clean part is. I used no primer and smoothed it out over my skin.

Packaging 9/10

Just a little tube. Easy to get product out of and at the end of its life very easy to cut open and retrieve the rest. It’s got a sleek silvering that doesn’t look half bad either.
