This B.B. cream sample came in my April 2018 Sephora Play. I am not sure how I feel about this “foundation”? First of all, the shade is pretty dark for my pale skin! However, once it is blended in, it doesn’t look as dark as it does in the swatch. This either means that it blends out light or it completely blends away? My thought is that it may be the second one because the coverage is light to nonexistent. I would call this more of a tinted sunscreen than a foundation. However, if I am going to use a tinted sun screen, I want more than an SPF of 25 (It Cosmetics CC is 50 and better coverage!!). It does do a nice job of evening out my skin but it does noting to hide imperfections. It doesn’t hold up to my oily skin and by lunch time I am a grease-ball (even when I use a setting powder). I am definitely not impressed with this sample and wouldn’t purchase the full size. I will however use up this sample by mixing it into my too-pale-for-summer Makeup Forever HD foundation to deepen it up and get a little more SPF in the mix...so it will not go to waste. And who knows, maybe I will enjoy it more as a mix-in? Sample is .16 Fl oz.
